Welcome to One Part Sunshine!

About Cindy Young

Hi! My name is Cindy. I am a green mom to a sweet baby girl and a creative big boy. One Part Sunshine is a place to share my experiences raising my kids in the safest and most natural way possible. My degrees in chemical engineering and law gave me the confidence to start this blog but my family gave me the inspiration. When I’m not blogging, I’m homeschooling, crafting, cooking, gardening, knitting, hiking and occasionally relaxing in my country home outside the Blue Ridge Mountains.

I believe that green parenting is not all-or-nothing. I’m not a vegetarian (and I confess to eating junk food once in a while). I don’t live off the grid (my AC is cranking right now). And most of my clothes are not organic (I don’t have quite the income to support that)! But I try to choose products made out of natural ingredients. I make things homemade whenever possible. And I try to instill a love of nature in my children.

What is green parenting?

Why “One Part Sunshine”?

I am often asked how I came up with the name for my website. “One Part Sunshine” is based on the idea that it takes many different pieces to raise a happy and healthy child. Children require:

  • love
  • patience
  • understanding
  • a safe home
  • healthy foods; and
  • sunshine (plenty of time outdoors)
