Lets go through the alphabet and see if we can come up with words or phrases or things having to do with something that is alternative to the mainstream in parenting, or just simply part of being a parent that is universally experienced! 

let's try three things for each letter, 

so if you can only think of one then the next two poster do two more, 

if you have three then write three, then the next poster goes on to the next letter of the alphabet!

Always respond to cries even if the cause is unclear

Accept that a baby's needs do not always mesh with adult wants

Affection and comfort is as essential to life as food and water

Develop self-esteem through lots of praise and gentle correction.

Don't spank or hit in any manner.

Ease into transitions

Forget the rules follow the cues

Food before one is just for fun

Feed on demand

Hold your baby, don't worry about holding too much, you can't!

Hitting is a no! We shouldn't hit adults, we shouldn't hit children.

Healthy eating starts before birth--keeping up with it will make you feel better, adjust to the first year better and teach your baby healthy eating habits for life as baby's taste is shaped through what they taste in utero and then through mom's breastmilk.

I- language

inclusiveness/involvement-try to find ways to incorporate a child in learning about life and how do to things with your child

inventive-invent ways that are experienced as a win/win

J is tricky, lets see, I know I'm reaching, but what the hey.....

Judgment- before you react is judge whether maybe you might regret it, would this help you and your child feel more connected and understood

Juicing-juicing veggies is a way to quickly get a nutrient packed drink in (not that I always do this, I think its a good idea and there are folks who live alternatively that do this)

Joy- our children respond to joy and want joy in their lives and most of the time what they do is about protecting or increasing joy, how do we help them have this while also getting what we need too? is an alternative way to approach life with children, and increase our own joy while we are at it too!
