we are trying to live more consciously and  more ethically. i have a saying, when you know better, you do better. this is a year for knowing better. I have set my family a few challenges for the new year, my hope is these challenges become the normal for us, that by the end of 2014 we will have settled into a new way of living and my children will have learned a few new life skills that will not only benefit themselves but also our planet and all others that encompass it. my hope is that kindness reaps kindness. My husband and i are continuing on our GLOBAL PARENTS journey this year, by supporting the less fortunate children of the world, we will also only buy PRE LOVED CLOTHING for ourselves and our children in support of bringing a greater awareness to the sweatshop industry and child labour.  my children are lucky, they will never have to sew clothing until their tiny fingers bleed, or sort through rubbish dumps for mere survival, they will never need to be sold or sell themselves, they will always have food to nourish their souls,  suitable clothing and a roof over their heads, they will know how fortunate they are, how others like themselves do suffer for the sake of the rest of the world. my intentions are not to make them feel guilty for their fortunate lives,  just greater awareness, and the knowledge of truth, so the they too may make more conscious choices in their life times.
