by Lyssa Armenta

Many parents-to-be are blissfully unaware of the challenges that come with getting your baby to sleep. Naturally, the majority are not even thinking about how they will approach this and probably have a dreamy image of laying their baby in their crib to fall asleep peacefully. Experienced parents know that is not the typical situation and were quite surprised by how overwhelming sleep time can be...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We really love Lyssa's point here that there are alternatives to getting your baby to sleep. Old thinking, old ways we feel need to be laid to rest. Letting your baby cry themselves to sleep in their crib is not the most healthy alternative as Lyssa so eloquently points out. There are many alternatives to choose from. Please new parents seek out these new ways.

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.

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 Andrea Fox

There’s just no way around this: Whether you’ve grown up in a dysfunctional home or in a Leave-It-To-Beaver-esque family, when you have kids you will do things like or despite the way you were parented...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Andrea Fox does a tremendous job addressing an issue all parents face, which is parenting from what you where taught as a child or parenting from a conscious state that we call intentional conscious parenting. We love how she shared her personal experience that occurred with her five year old daughter. She had to stop and ask herself how she was going to handle a certain situation. Enjoy!

 

Family & Parenting


 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Watch Adam who is an awakened 8 year old little boy introduces his latest crystal grid, which he calls a "web" grid. Adam has taken the time to listen to what his stones are vibrating to him. He takes this information and creates healing grids. Grab your kids, this is a must watch video.

This chart gives some pointers that can be a quick reminder of some of the feelings that may be driving certain behaviours and furthermore some of the possible unmet needs that need to gain attention before the child can begin to feel better, hence act better...

 

Editor's Note: Fantastic quick reference guide that may help you resolve issues quicker. Genevieve offers a lovely list that I think can be very beneficial, especially if you are a parent implementing new techniques in your parenting style. I love this chart and wish I had it when I was a new mom.

 

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.

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.
