Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We stumbled upon this very funny and cool video about trees and plants being able to hear, smell and feel. We have done a lot of reading on this subject the past 30 years and loved the quick information this short 2.52 video provides the public. We are full believers!

 

Family & Parenting


by Linda McGurk

Gnomes were traditionally believed to be supernatural creatures that took care of the animals on people’s farms and on Christmas people would reward them for their work by putting out a bowl of rice pudding. It was important to stay on good terms with the gnomes, since otherwise they could get irritated and subject you to various pranks...

 

Editor's Note: This gnome home inspired me so much. After the holidays this would be a great project to do with your kids before they go back to school. Get outside, build something fun and enchanting like this gnome home and enjoy the day!

How much TV should your Toddler or Preschooler watch?  Are you ready?  None.  Really.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that children under age 2 not watch any TV and that kids over age 2 be limited to an hour or at most two, daily, of quality programming...

 

Editor's Note: Shocking information regarding television and our children. While most of us have heard aspects of this before this article from Dr. Laura Markham shows us exactly how tv can affect our children. She also provides great alternatives to consider doing instead of electronic entertainment.

 

Family & Parenting


by Jill Hope

Confidence is such an essential quality in living a happy, successful life. Confident people are more likely to ask for what they want, and tend to do it in a way that gets a positive response...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Self-esteem is a very important part in raising a confident functioning child, teenager and adult. It's up to us as parents to instill this characteristic in our children. That's why we wanted to share this article with you. It has some very good tools and tips to put to use that we personally taught our children. Jill Hope provides parents with numerous resources through her writing and courses. If you are needing help she is an excellent resource.

When you hear Aha, you may think it is a good thing because ‘Aha’ usually means that you are becoming aware of something, but when you hear what AHA stands in this article, I’m not so sure you’ll feel the same way…

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Author and teacher Vicki Savini writes from her her heart and from experience as a teacher. In this article she shares first hand experiences about what the kids of this generation are going through. We really like how in this article she goes into depth on how to stop making excuses for our children, stop trying to provide them all the answers and instead teach them tools that will empower them to become problem solvers and more balanced human beings. Tools that will last a lifetime!

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Have you thought about giving your children wings?

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

Most parents of young children struggle to varying degrees with their child’s huge, and what can seem insatiable, need for their attention.  When our children are little, the demands on our time, energy and patience can feel so overwhelming...

 

Editor's Note: The importance of spending one on one time with our children is huge. Genevieve Simperingham reminds us of the incredible lessons our children learn when they see how important they are to us and that we find the time to fully engage in their lives. These moments will not only strengthen the parent/child bond but also lay the groundwork for them as they become adults and have their own families.

Editor's Note: I recently attended a workshop with Susan Stiffelman and very much appreciated the way she breaks down parenting concepts into usable pieces. Here she gives some great examples of how to validate and connect with children's feelings before (or instead of) giving advice. I especially love the 'comic book' response examples!

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you haven't had the pleasure of listening to Eckhart Tolle or reading his work after watching this video we are sure you'll become a fan! We encourage you to search him out more.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Dr. Shefali Tsabary says what children really want has no price tag. Watch as she explains why full, engaged parental presence is truly priceless. Plus, find out what to do if your child wants the material items their friends have.

 

Family & Parenting


by Cyndi Dale

I can’t count how many times I’ve been certain that Gabe’s issues were a result of absorbed energy rather than a particular germ or emotive problem. Sometimes he picks up my energy, other times, his father’s. Because he, like so many children, is such an open child, however, he’s fair game for attracting feelings, thoughts, illnesses, and frankly, even entities from friends, relatives, and more...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Cyndi's article is jam-packed with very insightful knowledge and tools to teach your children how to be responsible for their own energetic boundaries and how to release unwanted, unhealthy energy they may have intuitively, empathically picked up. Cyndi teaches the use of colors, stones, breath and connecting with divine source.

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.
