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.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We hand picked this delightful video for you. It is such a fun educational video about our solar system, it teaches about each planet and their elements with a catchy tune. Sing this with your children, they can't help but learn from this video.

 

Family & Parenting


"Quantum science tells us that the consciousness that makes up the “you” and “I” of the world is truly interconnected to all other things. We are not separate at all. We participate, consciously or unconsciously, in a universe that is constructed of a vast field of consciousness, of thought. That as participators in this universe we can, with our thoughts, feelings and beliefs, change our world. We can alter what we are participating in simply by thinking about it; whether we are in the location of the object of our thoughts or not. We participate, across time and space with our mind and the unseen energy our thoughts create."

 

~ Suzy Miller – Excerpt from “Awesomism: A New Way to Understand the Diagnosis of Autism”

 

Family & Parenting


by Jennifer Chung

Inter-generational relationships are a great way for children to get a sense of history, context, and perspective.  Often, adults, other than a parent, can connect with your child in ways a parent simply can’t.  I’ve seen family friends help teenagers through a rough time at school, grandparents give insightful friendship advice, and uncles get their nieces and nephews to try a new activity. Where a child might be standoffish to their parent, they are more willing to listen to relatives and less likely to talk back...

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We found this video so pleasing, especially since we reviewed Dr. Shefali's book The Conscious Parent in 2010 and hosted a live chat with her in March 2011. It's so magical to us that conscious parenting is finally taking center stage. Like we've said before we've raised our children this way starting 30 years ago. Since Dr. Shefali appeared with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday it is now getting the recognition that we feel is needed for our children, parents and society.

 

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 Leslie Freeman

We stood looking at his little dead body. Lifeless, just lying there on the ground. Kai looked at me in terror and the tears began to fall. His pet mouse was dead...

 

Editor's Note: A few weeks ago I got really frustrated at story time when the librarian changed the words of "I Know an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly" to remove "perhaps she'll die" from the end of the song. If we can't sing, talk, and think about death when it's not happening, then how will we deal with it when it actually happens?! Leslie Freeman addresses this topic head on as she explores grieving with her children over the loss of their pet mouse.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We came across the most adorable, cutest children's video about a seed becoming a tree. Sit down with your children and listen while the narrator reads you a story.

 

Family & Parenting


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...

 

Family & Parenting


 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: A fun and easy educational video to use to demonstrate and teach your children about "tapping."
EFT ~ Emotional Freedom Technique is a spectacular way to share how to release unhealthy emotions, fears, stresses, illnesses and build your confidence. EFT takes positive affirmations to a whole other level. You are tapping into and stimulating your meridian systems. Come laugh along with Brad and his young assistant

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: WOW! Just WOW! This is a must see, especially if you have a son. It reminds me of the quote "the way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice" by Peggy O'Mara.
