When I think about my mom, I think about how she was the solid foundation of our family. She made all the major health decisions indirectly and directly. She made the decision to not breastfeed because she was told that formula was, “the good stuff,” that privileged Americans had access to. Breastmilk were for third world countries, such as Vietnam. Being that she was a refugee from Vietnam, she felt that anything that America had to offer must be of premium quality comparably. She couponed, bought the groceries, cooked our meals, and decided when and why we should go to the doctor.
In the 7 years that I’ve been practicing, this is just as true for mothers today as it was over 30 years ago. Moms continue to be the fountainhead of most families. This is the very reason why I am passionate about Empowering Moms with accessible knowledge and resources to make the decisions that virtually affect the lives of their kids, their family, and ultimately the world. It has been said many times before that changing the world begins with our children. I personally believe that changing the world begins with our Moms. It starts with making the choice to become a conscious parent. Being a conscious parent in every sense of the word is a daily choice. Truthfully, sometimes it is a choice that must be made every hour of the day for me. I know how difficult it is and how much work and commitment it is to dedicate my entire life to being a conscious parent. I also know that I can’t do this myself and I need a solid community of people that aspire to do the same to support me when things get tough and to keep me accountable when I start to drift astray. I hope that you will be a part of my movement to protect our kids by empowering yourself with Truth and Knowledge.
