Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: This is part two to the previous submission (See Part 1). Every bit as good as the first one. The teachings of Abraham are channeled through Ester Hicks. There is no other higher authority on this subject from our point of view. We've been studying the law of attraction for over 25 years. When you are listening to the teachings of Abraham you truly are tapping into source energy. The benefits of teaching a child at a young age "law of attraction" could profoundly impact the course of their life.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This Ted Talk by Dr. Shefali Tsabary is so close to our heart because conscious parenting is what we believe in. She nails it from a medical and scientific point of view. We wish this was taught and shared with every parent on the planet.

Are the kids bored? They don't have to be. Look around your kitchen, gather up the supplies you need and make some homemade playdough. Store it in an airtight container for months of fun. Pull out your rolling pin, cookies cutters and let the creativity begin.

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: This is tried and true playdough recipe dating back from our knowledge at least eighty years, possibly longer. Both of our families with our children have used this recipe, playing and making it together. We wish to pass it on to your children and wish you many happy memories.

 

 

Family & Parenting


by Marisa Duran

Life is brimming with struggle; childhood is no exception, though many adults make choices that indicate it should be an exception.

Parents can choose to to let struggle happen, or they can squelch it...


Editor´s Note: When a baby cries, we respond immediately, but as a child grows it's important to check in and notice the times when our children really want to work through a struggle and accomplish something on their own. When we rush in and rescue children from their frustration we're inadvertently teaching them that struggle isn't OK and that if something is hard, someone more capable will swoop in a save us from our frustration.

by Laura Markham, PhD

I know, you think you hate playing with your child.  But what if I gave you permission to set a timer and forget about your To-Do list and just connect with your child for ten minutes?  What if I promised that if you do this on a regular basis, your child will become more cooperative, and you will feel more energized?  What if it helped you become a happier parent?...


Editor's Note: Dr. Laura Markham provides great ideas on how to connect with our children through play. Full of great tips and situations we find ourselves in daily Dr. Markham hits everyone with sound advice and great ideas that inspire a change in how we engage with our kids.

1) Prepare a weekly healthy menu ahead of time. Once a week go grocery shopping for the ingredients you'll need to be able to stick to your menu. Make sure to include healthy low sugar breakfast items to start your kids off with brain fuel. Remember to include healthy after school snacks and items for extra curricular events during the week. On a budget? Check the local sale adds before heading out to shop. On the day of your extra after school activities stock a small ice chest full of healthy snacks or a prepared meal to have on hand to avoid the temptation of the fast food urge. Get the kids involved in learning about making healthy choices and planning out the weeks menu and getting them involved in cooking the meals.

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We thought this would be good for those of you out there who need a little extra help in the organization department. So many times parents want more knowledge on how to organize but don't know where to even begin. Have fun reading through our tips. Be sure to pick the ones that are most beneficial for you and your family. Enjoy!

Editor's Note: This video contains a gentle and reflective conversation that honors the heartfelt desire we have as parents to be loving and joyful with our children. I appreciate her emphasis on the importance of being curious, because this helps us to open our hearts to our children and ourselves in each moment. Watching this video made me feel that I had just had a nourishing conversation with a fellow mother whose love for her children inspires my own.

Carol and Stacy: How important is it for you as a mom to instill a love for nature? And can you tell us about the day you made your nature mandala shared in the above picture?

Jessi: For me it is absolutely crucial to instill a love for nature in Sonora. It’s also something I think comes really naturally to children if given the chance. I think it is monumentally important for a child’s (and adult’s) mental, physical and spiritual well being to be in communion with nature.

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Today we have a special treat for you! We wanted to share with you a mother who is on a quest to raise her daughter with a deep connection and appreciation to mother earth. We are always so inspired by the daily stories and experiences she shares on Facebook. We invited Jessi Elizabeth to join us on our Intentional Conscious Parenting blog to share a glimpse into her conscious parenting world.

 

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

You know that you love your child and your child knows that they are loved.  When most of the below needs are met more often than not, your child’s likely to feel loved and secure...

 

Editor's Note: Wonderful checklist of the basic needs of children. Fantastic insight on what attributes we want our children to have and how as parents we can help them achieve these by our gentle parenting style.

 

Family & Parenting


by Joyce and Barry Vissell

When you ask someone a personal question, do you sit back and listen to their response without any interruptions? Or do you fill in the waiting period with more questions and other talking? Most of us would right away say that we are like the first type of person or at least we want to be. Oddly enough, most people are like the second and don't realize it...

 

Editor's Note: I love this simple reminder of the power of deep listening. I know this is very true for me with both my partner and my son who respond so much better when I am patient. I hope you find it helpful!

 

Family & Parenting


by Papa Ed

The joy of being grandpa. Sharing with your granddaughter the thrill of fishing.
Knowing she will someday share this gift with her children and grand children...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: My husband Ed shares his thoughts about fishing with our granddaughter. He is filled with gratitude and joy for the opportunity to share with the next generation. He knows how important every moment is and strives to take nothing for granted. ~ Stacy Toten

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.
