Upcoming carnivals:

Two fabulous opportunities to write in community with other natural parents!
  • The Freedom of Cloth Carnival from Natural Parents Network:
    As the Natural Parents Network works to compile your articles into a cloth diapering resource, we’re excited to announce that we will also be hosting a week long cloth diapering carnival. The Freedom of Cloth Carnival is scheduled over the week of July 4th (July 3-9) to celebrate the beauty of finding independence from unnecessary waste through the use of cloth diapers, as well as to support independent, mama-run businesses. … You are welcome to participate on just one day, or join us all week long.
    See the post for details on daily themes and submitting articles.
  • 2nd Annual Carnival of Gentle Discipline from Baby Dust Diaries:
    Last year’s Carnival of Gentle Discipline was a wonderful success. Our participants posts were read widely and helped spread the word that there IS another way to parent that is non punitive. This year, let’s do it again! The 2nd Annual Carnival of Gentle Discipline will take place June 27 through July 1.
    See the post for details on how to submit original and previously published articles.
