Our tūpuna (ancestors) had gentle and respectful parenting ways and many of these can be effective today. Pēpi were considered a gift from the atua (gods) so were tapu (sacred) and not to be harmed. Pēpi are also born with the mana from the atua and from their tūpuna, meaning they were treated with respect, as any adult would be.
We write about traditional Māori parenting kaupapa, modern parenting practices, and useful tips and tricks for anyone with babies and kids.
