I knew there would be unexpected challenges when I became a parent, but there have been some things that have completely shocked me. Even though I’ve been a nanny, preschool teacher, and an older sister for most of my life, the innate ability of our darling child to wreak complete havoc on our lives still astounds me...

 

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: Hilarious view of real life events that inspired these 4 particular rules. Shelly will make you laugh but most of all cause us all to relate to the wonderful yet weird world of being a parent.

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.

 

Family & Parenting


by Beth Rhines

When I was a child, there was a young spruce tree in my yard. Its branches were thick with needles. I would get on my hands and knees and crawl through the branches towards the trunk of the tree. The poking needles were a small inconvenience, because just inside the perimeter the needles disappeared and what emerged was a protected space that became my special hideout...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Outdoor play is so important to children! Find ways to incorporate outdoor play for your children. Being outside helps children to connect to the importance of nature, physical activity, while also nurturing creativity of outdoor play.

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: The more media my children are exposed to the more I believe in becoming a television free home. What limits do you put on television in your home or do you even have a television?

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Sir Ken Robinson addresses the historical development of our educational system and why reform is essential for the future.

 

Family & Parenting


by Bruce Buccio

How do you view and define discipline as a parent? Finding the right balance that works with your child is your prerogative, within reason of course. What would happen if you were to start reasoning with your child with rationale and good understanding of the issue as if you were ... mentoring...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Bruce Buccio provides healthy conflict resolution examples between parent and child. One of the reasons we really appreciate this article is the guilt free examples Bruce provides. Bruce teaches parents how to be in control of their emotions at the time of conflict instead of their emotions controlling them.

 

Family & Parenting


by Laura Markham, PhD

What did you learn before you were eight?  That you're a capable person, worthy of adoration and an abundant life, lovable exactly as you are, even with all of your messy imperfections, bodily functions, anger, fear, and neediness?...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Dr. Laura Markham is one of my favorite authors. Here's a wonderful article about creating awareness around your own childhood wounds and how they can affect parenting. When we take time for self-growth and love, we have more love and compassion to give to our children. Beautiful reminder and helpful advise.

 

Family & Parenting


by Carol Lawrence

Penney shares some very powerful information surrounding forgiveness. She begins by sharing a quote from Joan Borysenko, "Forgiveness is not the misguided act of condoning irresponsible, hurtful behavior, Nor is it a superficial turning of the other cheek that leaves us feeling victimized and martyred...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Children sometimes assume the same limiting beliefs as their parents and take on their parents feelings and judgements as their own. Carol explores teaching children the ability to forgive and let go.

 

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


 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: It's never too early to teach children the importance of recycling. PBS Kids has teamed up with Annie Leonard, The Story of Stuff author, to create these educational short cartoons to help teach children the importance of taking care of Mother Earth.

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.
