Answering my vegan pregnancy questions
One of the first books I wrote was 'Guide to the Playgrounds of Lewisham', using the medium of crayon, aged toddler. I was reminded of this while pregnant, as I dreamily looked over baby activity listings. I decided to resurrect my idea as the children's maps you see here.
As a pregnant vegan, I struggled to find information about vegan baby products. I even bought some non-vegan things in error. I decided to make Vegan Family Guide as a 'one stop shop' for new vegan parents to quickly find the facts we are looking for. This website is my personal notebook. Read my Reasons to be Vegan here.

Work it out as you go along
The world deserves an end to the cycle of violence which begins in childhood. Children also deserve a fulfilling life now. But how? I've read up on many parenting theories, education and schooling theories, and cultural differences. However, I've come to think that there is no right way. In systems thinking, a resilient system is one which is adaptable enough to deal with with complexity and subtlety of life. The most important thing to do, in my opinion, is to hone the skills for deep observation by tuning in and connecting with your child. Uncover your assumptions and ideology. Evolve in light of what you learn and find balance. You get out what you put in, so take the time and make a friend for life. Remember that an air of calm confidence rubs off, and don't dwell on critics. Above all, let yourself love your child, and let them know they're loved. You do not need to be afraid of making them soft, or unprepared. Touch and kind words wire infant brains to give them the resilience to grow up and change the world.
