Christmas and Hanukkah come just once a year. Thank Goodness! The Holiday Season is a wonderful time of year! It can, also, be very challenging for many reasons – e.g., the extra errands, gift-buying, food preparation, and family gatherings...


A Note from ATH Supervising Editor, Sherri Carter: Author, Jenn Nocera, offers great tips on how to be proactive in reducing stress during this busy time of the year.


Family & Parenting

by Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten,
ATH Asst. Editors of Family & Parenting

All children are spiritual beings that have come to have a human experience. We know each parent wants to have their belief system instilled in their children. We just ask you to allow and not shut off other avenues of explorations for them. Inspired children can think outside of themselves...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This is one of our favorite articles we have written. It is simple but yet powerful. We were asked to write an article listing what we felt was intentional conscious parenting. We've had a tremendous amount of positive feedback from this article and wish to share it with you all.


Family & Parenting

by Sylvia Poareo, MSW

Lately it has become even more apparent to me that parenting has less to do with what we say or do, but rather where we are coming from when we do...


Editor's Note: Sylvia Poareo gives us a glimpse into our inner teenager and inner parent and guides us into becoming more aware of where we are coming from with regards to parenting our children.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This is a great craft project you can do with your kids after school or on the weekend. You probably have everything you need for this except maybe having to buy a bag of cotton balls and a glue gun, or borrow a glue gun. This could be a good activity with supervision, with the adult choosing which part the adult does and which part the child does. Great for ages 3-11. Let the children's creativity flow while decorating their snowmen.

A Note from Supervising Editor, Sherri Carter: This video went viral a few months back and it made me laugh, especially when I realized I had said almost everything in the video! It's always good to be able to laugh, even when being a Crunchy Mama!

Editor's Note: Incredibly hilarious video revealing bath time with a toddler.


Family & Parenting

"We will be like a whisper in your ear, or a knowing in your heart. Just close your eyes and talk to us in your thoughts -- then look and listen for answers. You know we are always there."

~Quote from the children's book Kai And The Magic Jacket.

Editor's Note: This video contains a gentle and reflective conversation that honors the heartfelt desire we have as parents to be loving and joyful with our children. I appreciate her emphasis on the importance of being curious, because this helps us to open our hearts to our children and ourselves in each moment. Watching this video made me feel that I had just had a nourishing conversation with a fellow mother whose love for her children inspires my own.


Family & Parenting

by Genevieve Simperingham

One day when my daughter was about eight, in expressing to me all the reasons why she really appreciates me, she said “because when I’m angry and I tell you to go away, you stay with me and keep looking after me”...


Editor's Note: Genevieve reminds us that anger is the first layer often revealed when a child is experiencing stress. Her techniques are valuable and show parents how to move past the hurtful words and reactions kids sometimes use and get to the root of the issue.


Family & Parenting

by Shelly Phillips, MA

Ahh, the joys of the holidays, we get to travel far distances and celebrate with people we may or may not like very much, all in the name of family togetherness.  Luckily for me, I adore pretty much everyone in my family, but I know that’s not the case for everyone.  And even though I love my family, the stresses of traveling with a baby are not something I’m looking forward to...


Editor's Note: Great tips and encouragement as we go into the holiday season!


Family & Parenting

by Dr. Laura Markham PhD

Bullying begins in preschool and gains momentum as kids grow. Depending on which survey you read, between 40 and 80 percent of middle schoolers admit to bullying behavior...


Editor's Note: Dr. Laura Markham provides quick and easy things we can do to instill confidence in our children so that they can handle themselves in a bully situation. I found this article very helpful and encouraged me to take a look at what I have taught my own children regarding bully behavior.


Family & Parenting


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We are true followers of Bruce Lipton. We've actually had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Bruce at a Hay House Conference. He is a genius. The kindest, gentlest soul that would give you the time of day. If you take the time to watch this video we guarantee you, you'll walk away inspired and filled with life changing knowledge.  This is part one of two videos.

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.
