Barefoot parenting is a combination of many  natural parenting methods combined. 

It is about stripping away how we think we should be raising a child, to how mother nature intend. Barefoot parents  see their child for the mind body and soul that they are and embrace their free spirits .They let their  child discover their own learning boundaries through natural child - led curiosity and unstructured play.

Barefoot parents  do not measure or try to guide their  childs development, they do not try to  push a  child to hit a milestone for which they might not be developmentally ready just because thats what parenting books suggest .

They support, rather than guide and they lend a hand when such help is requested

and needed. They do not believe in controlling and taking away the fun of play but rather to enjoy their child; letting them be free to be wild, without letting others judgements get in the way.They do not see their child as a project, in which they must mold into perfection" - but rather they embrace  and see their individuality.Barefoot parents embrace parenthood right from beginning,  They  feel Intune with knowing  their childs wants and needs by using motherly instinct and not following other " main stream parenting advice they have "read" .Barefoot  parents see themselves as equal to their children in the sense of respect, communication and values. They  immerse there child with love of  a natural quality of living and  embrace a life full of simplicity .Their children can be seen immersed with un structed  natural -open ended roleplay with children of different ages were they  are free to explore,and  test their limits, children are welcomed to learn and engage in essentially life skills by their parents . Barefoot parenting is the most natural and least stressful form of parenting, for both parent and child.  - it  is all about trustful parenting , not about parenting how others think you should. Its about valuing children’s autonomy. .Barefoot parenting is very similar and has the  same values of raising good mindful kids ,that many hunter - gatherer communities through out the world live by to this day.Its similarity also reflects the  millennia-old methods that were the  way our ancestries parented
