Christmas and Hanukkah come just once a year. Thank Goodness! The Holiday Season is a wonderful time of year! It can, also, be very challenging for many reasons – e.g., the extra errands, gift-buying, food preparation, and family gatherings...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Author, Jenn Nocera, offers great tips on how to be proactive in reducing stress during this busy time of the year.

 

Family & Parenting


by Steve Olsher

As a parent, there’s nothing we want more for our child, outside of being healthy, than for her to be happy, fulfilled, and live a life of contribution which adds meaningful value to others. 

But, how can you help facilitate this?...


Editor's Note: Helping our children connect to their purpose in life is one of our highest roles as mentors/guides in this world. We also avoid LOTS of unnecessary power struggles when we respect and listen to our children's souls to lead the way. Here Steve Olsher offers us some wonderfully specific and practical ways to help our child stay focused on how their light wants to shine in this world. Let us know what you think!

 

Family & Parenting


by Michael Mendizza

After viewing our interview with Jean Liedloff, a parent said, “Jean talks about the effects of over protective parenting. I am so guilty of this. My son is much more capable when he is on his own than when he knows I am looking. I am wondering how I could undo this?...”


Editor's Note: In this article, Michael Mendizza succinctly reminds us of some shifts necessary to support our children's innate potential and capacity. It is a wonderful reminder to let go and trust our natural design.

 

Family & Parenting


by Andrea Ploehn

When children at an early age experience disappointment in communicating over and over again it significantly affects their confidence...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: By breaking through communication barriers Author and mother Andrea Ploehn has achieved some very powerful results in her parenting with her children through the use of sign language. She provides excellent examples on how to build confidence, avoid tantrums, and excel socially.

 

Family & Parenting


by Vicki Savini

It breaks my heart when I see a child getting a bad wrap because of rambunctious behavior. When a child has this kind of energy there is generally something going on deep inside of them that stems from a belief that they are not good enough...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We were very pleased when Vicki Savini, a loving mother, teacher and author offered to share this enlightening article about a conversation she had with her son and about her camp for boys that took place this summer. We believe many parents will relate to Vicki's heartfelt talk with her son. "Tonight, while putting him to bed we had a talk and what came out of that talk was truth." ~ Vicki Savini

 

Family & Parenting


 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski This little video was shared with me by one of our Editors. She said she watches it whenever she needs a little pick-me-up. Tis cute. Even cuter that the paper being ripped by the dad is a job rejection letter.

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

When children are upset and unsettled, they need empathy and connection before solutions or suggestions.  They need to get their feelings out and to see that we’re noticing and caring about those feelings...

 

Editor's Note: Sometimes it's the hardest thing to do but keeping calm and composed while our children are grumpy is a challenge. We have all been there and felt that moment of frustration and annoyance but Genevieve reminds us to approach these situations with love and calmness and stay focused on peaceful parenting rather than react with anything but sweetness.

 

Family & Parenting


by Margaret Paul, PhD

In a phone session with Gerald, one of my clients, he expressed to me that he was feeling very sad about his son, Luc. Luc, 29 years old, was not doing much with his life, and Gerald was berating himself for how he had parented Luc...

 

Editor's Note: Great reminder that our children have their own path to discover and to allow them the space to do that rather than judge, criticize or take their accomplishments or lack thereof personally. 

 

Family & Parenting


by Shelly Phillips MA

We all want what’s best for our kids, but with all of the conflicting information out there, sometimes it’s difficult to tell exactly what that might be...

 

Editor's Note: Who knew that sun and dirt equaled healthier children? Fantastic information on how to get out there and enjoy the mud pie making days.

 

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

Every child deserves to not feel shamed by their parents. If your child feels free to show you their true feelings, if shaming inadvertently happens, they will show you their pain and you can restore their dignity by owning and repairing what has happened...

 

Editor's Note: Genevieve reminds us to be aware of our words and most importantly guard against shaming our children. Through dealing with our own pasts and recognizing where we might have experienced shame we can heal those aspects within ourselves and prevent the recurrence in our own children's lives.

 

Family & Parenting


"Each and every component that makes up your life experience is drawn to you by the powerful Law of Attraction's response to the thoughts you think and the story you tell about your life. Your money and financial assets; your body's state of wellness, clarity, flexibility, size, and shape; your work environment, how you are treated, work satisfaction, and rewards—indeed, the very happiness of your life experience in general—is all happening because of the story that you tell."

~Abraham Hicks

 

Family & Parenting


by Signe Whitson, LSW

What do the phrases “Nice job,” “Very funny,” and “That was clever” all have in common? Each statement in its literal form reads as socially appropriate praise, but in spoken word may more closely resemble caustic, verbal aggression...


Editor's Note: I wasn't quite sure how to talk to my husband about how sarcasm affects young people and then I read this great article on the topic. Whew! Now I'll just have him read this and then we can discuss how we can support each other and our family by removing the sarcasm from our daily lives.

A Missing Key to Building Childrens Self-Esteem

by Sylvia Poareo

A client asks, “How can I help my child have good self esteem, when I don’t?”

The fact that she can recognize that this is a problem is the first step!  So often, parents, particularly those that have personal histories to heal, focus intensely on helping their children to have the confidence they don’t.  However, we cannot teach self-esteem.
