Improve your parenting mindset, not your actions!

I hand-craft this weekly letter for parents like me to pause, reflect, and learn.

No parenting to-dos here!

"Big fan! Saturday is perfect (I actually snooze all newsletters I get till Saturday and read them at once). The size is perfect (short, with a few links to longer articles). And it strikes the perfect balance between your own unique insights and science while the actual scientific papers are even linked to. Can't recommend it enough :)"
– J. Brinkmann

"This brand new newsletter on parenting is excellent, especially for parents of smaller children."
– A. Steele

"Great parenting tip from @basakbuilds newsletter: Treat your children the way you would honestly want to be treated."
