Many adults want to deny the significance of what happened to them when they were young and vulnerable. Others believe that they should "just get over" any problems they had as they were growing up. The truth is childhood is an important part of who we all are...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We have really enjoyed working with Loren Buckner. She has a tremendous amount of parenting wisdom to teach about the emotional challenges of family life and how to deal with them. Upon reviewing her book and interviewing her we feel Loren is a great resource for the All Things Healing family and parenting community.

 

Family & Parenting


by John D. Blomquist

Through a child’s eyes, many of the rights and freedoms some adults take for granted must seem quite constrained. Surely any three-year-old would be confounded by the “self-evident” truths of her unalienable rights to liberty and the pursuit of happiness enunciated in the Declaration of Independence; and given how some big people interact with her, she might feel even less entitled to any of the specific rights and freedoms set forth in the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United States...

Family & Parenting


by Cheryl Tallman

The original name of Thailand was Sukhothai, which means "Dawn of Happiness.” Without a doubt, sharing a Thai meal will bring this attitude of pleasure to your table. Preparing Thai food is quick and easy. Most recipes are cooked on a stovetop for a short period of time making Thai food ideal for weeknight dinners. Plus soups and curries can be made ahead of time, frozen and reheated for serving. Cooking a Thai meal will introduce your family to a new culture through a variety of flavors...

by Carol Lawrence

Parenting is not an easy job but in my opinion it's the best job anyone could ever have. The children of today are the future of tomorrow. Today we have so many more tools available and so much more knowledge than when our parents were raising us. Such as the fact that our thoughts and emotions have a huge impact on our bodies...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Conscious parenting is really connecting with parents these days as they are searching for new and creative open ways to raise their children. We are thrilled to see this happening. We've been writing publicly about conscious parenting topics since 2009. Both of us raised our families in this manner when there was no conscious parenting resources to pull from. Here's an older article from the vault. We'd love your feedback and to hear your thoughts.

 

Family & Parenting


by Dr. Laura Markham PhD

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 Yvonne Perry

Empathy and intuition gives us the ability to better understand how we are connected to other living things. It is a form of communication with others, nature, animals, and even higher or spiritual forms of life...

Most parents want their children to be healthy, yet have no idea what kind of nutrition creates optimal health. This article can put you on the right track in understanding how to support your children's health...

 

Editor's Note: Great article and timely as everyone in my family has suffered through every nasty bug that has come along this year. Reevaluating our diet may be the first place for us to start.
