Family & Parenting


by Kira Wizner

Every day our children learn about living. For them, almost everything is new. Not only are they learning about being a person, they are learning all the skills that we already have under our belt...

 

Editor's Note: Kira reminds us that in life we are constantly learning something new, whether it be a new adventure like bike riding or simply learning the balance between pushing our children vs encouraging them. This article reminds us to feel the emotions of newness, of feeling nervous when we attempt something new for the first time, and push through knowing that we will look back at our accomplishments and feel great!

Editor's Note: I love watching Dr. Bailey demonstrate the shifts in presence of moving from fear to love. This is a wonderful parenting tune up with great reminders! Do yourself and your children a favor and take the time to watch it!

Earth Day is upon us once again. What a wonderful day to celebrate and acknowledge our Earth planet. We should all have gratitude in leaps and bounds for without our earth we could not exist. Because of our precious planet we THRIVE...

“It’s all about finding the calm in the chaos." ~Donna Karan

As parents, it’s easy to react to your children when not aware. You may react to their behavior rather than respond to them as individuals. If you see this pattern in your interaction with your child, be gentle with yourself. You are human and probably overwhelmed with the pressures of everyday life.

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Bonnie Compton has some tips on how parents can obtain a calmness from within during their parenting. Her article is full of various strategies to help you learn to recognize and express your emotions in a healthy manner. We hope you find her calming techniques useful in your day to day parenting.

by Katrina Bos

They say that becoming a parent should come with an owner’s manual. But what if we have something better? What if we actually have perfect guidance available to us in every moment, and it’s completely unique to the child and situation?

 

 

 

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Katrina Bos shares her mystic parenting insights while learning how to trust her own inner guidance system. Katrina touches on the biggest lessons we also learned, we grow as parents while we are parenting.

It’s spring-cleaning time!  Hooray!  Out with the old and in with the new.  Flowers are blooming, trees are budding and leafing out, and my husband and I are taking a good hard look at our finances.  Ouch...

 

Editor's Note from Shelly Phillips: It's spring cleaning time! You're organizing your house, planting your garden, but did you forget to get your finances in order?

 

Family & Parenting


by Margaret Paul, PhD

Do your children see you as happy and peaceful, or do they see you as angry, depressed or overburdened? Learn how important it is to good parenting for you to learn to take emotional responsibility for your own feelings...

 

Editor's Note: In this article, Margaret Paul, discusses a form of giving feedback to our children that is more valuable and effective than traditional praise. There is alot of information on 'avoiding praise' nowadays, and this approach gives parents something helpful that they can do instead, to empower children and preserve their excitement about learning.

 

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 Rebecca Eanes

My firstborn is a highly sensitive child. I didn’t realize this fact until he was three, and I didn’t fully understand it until he was four and a half when I read Ted Zeff’s book, The Strong, Sensitive Boy. Without the knowledge and understanding of my son’s sensitivity, I disciplined him in ways that damaged his self-esteem and our bond. 

 

 

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: For those of you who have never heard of HSC, which stands for highly sensitive child this is a very informative article. Have you noticed a difference between your children and how they react to the way you discipline them? Do they take it very personal and carry it with them? Are they overly emotional? Please read this article. You will learn different techniques that set boundaries but don't harm your child inside and out.

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.
