Subconsciously, we’ve become so socially conditioned to what’s “normal” that we’ve stopped questioning anything.
We don’t stop to think - Is sleeping in a crib normal? Does my 3-year-old still need to be wearing a diaper? Do I have to take the stroller everywhere? Will I have a “problem child” if I don’t enforce time-out?
We’ve become so engrossed with what everyone else is saying and doing that we rarely stop to ask ourselves if these common approaches to parenting are actually working for our families.
Here you won’t find black-and-white answers to the above questions, but you will uncover a profound revelation:
When we dare to silence the white noise of society, you will then hear a different sound.
The voice of your own intuition; strengthening over time like a muscle, until it becomes a bold, spirited roar.
This 120-page eBook delivers evidence-based wisdom, practical knowledge, useful tools, and tips based on experience to help you raise your kids with empathy and authenticity.

The Lost Art of Natural Parenting shares a beautiful message – that parenting can be an enlightening experience, challenging us to become the best version of ourselves as our children teach us how to become the parents they need us to be. It is a fascinating read and as a parent, one can’t help but feel empowered in the knowledge that by taking an intentional and conscious approach to parenting, no matter how different that may look to the mainstream, we are setting the stage for a lifetime of unyielding connection with our children. I can’t recommend this book highly enough for parents who feel that there must be a better way.

the founder, writer and advocate behind the award-winning blog, Raised Good - a guide to natural parenting in the modern world. Based in Vancouver and originally launched in 2016, I’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response and the global community that’s developed.
Our common thread is that our instincts are telling us something about the way our culture tells us to raise children isn’t working. And while I may not have all the answers, I’m willing to ask the tough questions and advocate for kids and for you, their brave and amazing mum.
Together we’re reclaiming the wonder of motherhood and the joy of childhood one decision at a time.
Our society tends to paint parenthood as something to “get through”; prioritizing adult’s wants over children’s needs.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way.
It’s possible to parent through connection rather than coercion; through love rather than fear. Now’s the time to rouse your natural parenting instincts and be the parent you want to be, not the one society expects you to be.
Because when we meet children’s needs they thrive and parenting becomes easier, smoother and infinitely more enjoyable.
For less than the cost of another toy, you can begin to shift how you approach parenting and reclaim the wonder of motherhood.
“I can wholeheartedly recommend reading this empowering book! I was lucky enough to stumble across The Lost Art of Natural Parenting, and Tracy's website, when my son was just a couple of weeks old. After reading her words, I instantly felt at ease because it resonated with me so deeply. Not only is her book beautifully written, the images and layout make it such an easy and inspiring read. Thank you for sharing your work with us all.”
- Jessica Gallaty, Mother of one, Sydney, Australia
“Words can't express my gratitude to Tracy for her Lost Art of Natural Parenting! It was my first exposure to topics like positive parenting, cosleeping, and breastfeeding topics I'd never even thought of. She opened a whole gateway for me to raise my 3rd child very differently than my first two. I followed cultural and medical "norms" with my first two but now feel so much more NATURAL and truly loving the baby stage by following her information. I only wish I had found this sooner and I know my parenting experience would have been drastically better!”
– Sarah Wright Davis, Mother of three, Massachusetts, USA
“I’ve loved reading The Lost Art of Natural Parenting and your work on Raised Good and as it so gently points out the obvious logic in parenting in ways that remind me that my relationship with my child is based on trust, that it is my responsibility as the parent to provide for his needs and that he is not manipulating me emotionally in the process. I love the work and the logic. Your voice should be heard louder and by many more!”
– Sarah Jervis, mother of one, Hong Kong via Ontario, Canada
“Tracy’s writing is beautiful and a joy to read. The Lost Art of Natural Parenting is heartfelt, soulful, honest and inspiring, while being thoroughly researched and scientifically-backed. It is a brave mother who so openly questions the way society tells us to parent. Tracy makes us feel safe to start a much needed conversation about a deeper, more connected and better way of parenting.”
– Hannah Loaring, Writer and Visual Storyteller, Further Bound
“Reading The Lost Art of Natural Parenting has been a great privilege. I feel very in tune with Tracy, her writing and with the views she so eloquently expresses. I’m so grateful she has written this book for all parents who feel alone in their unconventional choices. We are parenting in a critical time where honesty and transparency is oh-so-needed for us parents to help and guide our children to have the bright and limitless future we hope and dream for them.”
– Sharndelle Fernandez, Mother to two-year-old Milan
“When people tell me, “stop picking up your baby”, “just feed him formula” or “he needs a time out” I turn to Tracy for advice. I feel so lucky to have someone who has walked the less-travelled path before me as I feel alone in most of my parenting choices. Like her writing on Raised Good, Tracy’s passion for natural parenting leaps off the page while giving me renewed confidence that while some people will always think natural parenting is only for hippies, it is actually rooted in science, evolutionary history and logic.”
– Laura Shallue, Mother to Blake, a bright and spirited one year old
