When I read about it I couldn’t quite believe it was being held in the UK. I thought it must be in the States as it sounded too good to be true. There were so many aspects that drew both my partner and me to it: the rich nature of the work being offered, having time without the kids to be able to really focus on our parenting journey, staying in a yurt, being cooked for all week, the kids being able to romp and roam on the land…. Fundamentally for me it was having an opportunity to connect and work with others drawn to this parenting approach, as prior to this I’d felt I was treading a lone road. My expectations were exceeded by the wealth of engagement from the other parents attending and it felt a great privilege to work together with them.
