Family & Parenting


by Lori Petro, BSEd

Parenting is seeing a revitalization in America. Groundbreaking research in brain science has revealed new ways of relating to our children and provided insight into the most common behavioral issues...

 

Editor's Note: I appreciate the way this article uncovers some unconscious ways that parents continue enforcing old paradigms even while seeking to consciously parent. This article helps us to remember the big picture; bringing the old, unhelpful patterns to light, so that we can refocus on the love and connection we want to nurture with our children.

 

Family & Parenting


by Nina Nelson

One of my favorite things about the internet has been finding other moms who are living life how I want to, albeit a few steps ahead. But I think that’s the best part. I’ve been able to learn so much from them and, in turn, share it with others...

 

Editor's Note: Nina comes through yet again with a great list of nine moms who are super inspiring. You'll learn about natural living, organization, money management, minimalizm, and find some great whole foods recipes too, as you explore these incredible moms and their blogs and sites. Enjoy!

Family & Parenting


by Stacey Irwin

Parenting is tough. Not only are you charged with raising a child to be physically and emotionally healthy but also socially responsible.  In this age of melting ice-caps, overflowing landfills and dwindling natural resources, it’s more important than ever to raise an eco-friendly child...

 
Editor's Note
I find this article to be really fun! Stacey shares some easy ways to "greenify" children's lives early on for a lasting impact.


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 from Angela McCoy: 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 from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: As you may already know we are huge fans of Abraham Hicks. This particular video is full of astounding advice. The bottom line is when you as a parent consistently focus on being in alignment and balanced your energy effects your children, 24/7. Your children are a mirror image of you, your energy and vibration. Abraham explains this in detail.

 

Family & Parenting


by DeAnna L’am

My Mom first put me on a diet when I was about 8 years old. None of my photos show an overweight girl, though I wasn’t skinny either. Rather, I was an average-weight girl with the body type of her Mom, and her Grandma, none of whom were scrawny...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Beautiful article written about a mindless parent not thinking about the outcome of her decision based on being caught up in the cultural diet craze and the effects it had on her daughter. To all of us parents, that's why we believe Intentional Conscious Parenting is so important! Everything we say to our children has effects and consequences no matter how mundane we may think it is.

In this time of smartphones and tablets and gaming systems, toys seem almost quaint. Why play with a real object when you could control a virtual one? Well, there’s something to be said for a plaything that makes you think or forces you to move more than a single finger...

 

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: Great look into some toys that are fantastic for both young and old.

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: Great look at some very inspiring fathers who will amaze you!

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: Hilarious rap from parents showing the day to day life and adventures of parenting.

 

Family & Parenting


by Laura Markham, PhD

Parents often ask me how to get along with their suddenly volatile preteen daughter.  It’s a shock when your previously sweet little girl starts tantrumming again.  Twelve year old girls can be moody, over-dramatizing, self-centered, focused almost solely on friends, close-mouthed, surly, back-talking and condescending to parents...

 

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: As a mom of a tween daughter I am often faced with the difficult transition that she is in. Dr. Markham offers incredible insight and reminders of how to stay connected during this challenging period in life. I hope it offers you the same encouragement and new ideas to make your relationship stronger and more secure as they continue the process of growing up.

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.
