Parenting is one of the hardest jobs out there, which is why so many parents seek guidance and connections online. Gentle parenting is a parenting style that’s taking over social media as mom influencers, family influencers and gentle parenting influencers and experts share their experiences.

Gentle parenting focuses on four main elements: empathy, respect, understanding and boundaries. Parents want their children to grow up in a way that they feel safe enough to express themselves in a way that’s still socially acceptable while also raising confident, happy children.
