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.

 

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...

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.

 

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 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: Author Catherine Crawford shares how she is painting a new light on intuition. When she was out on tour for her book she saw how hungry parents are for answers regarding their intuitive children. She touches upon some very valuable energetic tools. Parents with intuitive children could really benefit from this. Take a listen and let us know what you think.

by Alexandra Folz

My 11 year old daughter and I decided to publish our personal letters to one another after discussing their potential benefit to readers...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Alaxandra Folz takes us on a seven year journey with her daughters food allergies/sensistivities. They finally reached the end goal when her daughter turned 11 years old and they finally got their answers they had been searching for. Grab a kleenex, the dialogue that follows between this mom and daughters letters to each other is profound!

 

 

"Your three year old self knew. You knew it was hard to focus, sit still and follow directions. Something inside drove you ten steps ahead and told you to leap outta bounds." ~ Alexandra Folz.

 

Family & Parenting


by Shelly Phillips, MA

Ever wonder why we have the impulse to rock babies to help them calm down?

Studies show that rocking, spinning and other physical movement through space helps children’s brain development and their ability to pay attention, by stimulating the vestibular (inner ear) system...

 

 Editor's Note: This is such a fantastic article providing a great insight into why it's so important to involve our children in movement.

 

Family & Parenting


by Vicki Savini

It breaks my heart when I see a child getting a bad wrap because of rambunctious behavior. When a child has this kind of energy there is generally something going on deep inside of them that stems from a belief that they are not good enough...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We were very pleased when Vicki Savini, a loving mother, teacher and author offered to share this enlightening article about a conversation she had with her son and about her camp for boys that took place this summer. We believe many parents will relate to Vicki's heartfelt talk with her son. "Tonight, while putting him to bed we had a talk and what came out of that talk was truth." ~ Vicki Savini

 

Family & Parenting


by Maureen and Shanti from Twig & Toadstool

I was recently given some lovely white playsilks and it got me thinking... natural dyes... hmmm... what colors we could create?


I researched the possibilities and choose the simplest ways I could find.

Here is what we came up with...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Twig & Toadstool! Their blog and Pinterest boards are full of great activities. I have personally done this craft and the silks were just beautiful! I ordered silks from Dharma Trading Co. (8mm habotai scarves, 30x30 is a nice size, but they come larger and smaller). My son has a variety of playsilks that spark lots of creative play. The silks become superhero capes, ghosts, pirate gear, or many, many other possibilities. They also make a great alternative in the Easter basket to plastic grass.
