Parenting as an empath and HSP is complex and challenging; especially if your child(ren) are also highly sensitive.

In this episode, Lola chats with Hannah and Kelty of about raising empowered empaths when you, too, are an empath. Their RESIST model of parenting shares 6 powers you can amplify in your children; or *youself* if you are not a parent. Even if you don't have children yourself, this episode shears ways that we can speak more kindly internally, resource ourselves when nerves get fried, and communicate our needs and boundaries in grounded, compassionate ways.

Hannah and Kelty are twins, mothers and feminist co-hosts of the podcast and parenting resource Upbringing. Certified in Simplicity Parenting, Positive Discipline and trained in the respectful parenting approach, RIE, Hannah & Kelty are leading a movement that empowers parents to grow up alongside their kids for sanity and social change.

They believe that nurturing kids’ inner wisdom and authority — so often expressed via their resistance— can be a brave and beautiful way to raise a generation of activists, empaths, disruptors and change-makers! Hannah and Kelty's work is grounded in the Resist Approach, a progressive parenting practice that replaces conventional discipline with 6 alternative powers, designed to nurture our kids' innate freedoms and authentic spirits. They're growing up alongside their kids on a farm outside Portland, OR that they share with their partners and kids- ages 3, 4, 5 and 6.
