I have read a few posts that vaguely mention this term 'consensual living'. Hope I am posting in the correct place--I'm new to this. Can anyone expand on this type of parenting. Also, what does 'crunchy' mean?...and I've been 'frosted'?
Thanks for catching me up to speed!
crunchy is like crunchy granola, so saying someone is into green living, hippie-ish, etc. frosted is just from a game of private message tag, as it were, back from last winter. You can be frosted, toasted (new year's), boo'd (halloween) etc etc. I think it was "the thing" last year
I have also been wondering about consensual living-- ??
There is a member here who has a link to a site about it. Her user name is WuWei, so if you pull up one of her posts, you can look at her link. It's a very interesting site, but my brain is not functioning well enough to do the concept any justice. Maybe she'll catch this and chime in.
From some really basic research, I believe that consensual living refers to everyone in a household being considered equal. Children in a family are considered to be on the same "level" as parents and are regarded as such when family decisions are being made.
Someone please correct me if I am not fully understanding this correctly

They define it as:
"Consensual living is a process, a philosophy, a mindset by which we seek to live in harmony with our families and community. It involves finding mutually agreed upon solutions, where the needs of both parties are not only considered but addressed. Everyone’s wants and needs are equally valid, regardless of age. Conflicting wants or needs are discussed and mutually agreeable solutions are created or negotiated which meet the underlying needs of all parties."
