FAMILY & PARENTING

In this section you will find a collection of articles and videos themed around raising children, and, specifically, raising children who are conscious, compassionate and confident. Each month, we will feature a variety of postings that we feel support these ideals and that may help us to become better parents and caregivers.  Family & Parenting is All Things Healing’s online resource of natural and healthy parenting and natural and healthy families.

When I was a child, there was a young spruce tree in my yard. Its branches were thick with needles. I would get on my hands and knees and crawl through the branches towards the trunk of the tree. The poking needles were a small inconvenience, because just inside the perimeter the needles disappeared and what emerged was a protected space that became my special hideout...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Outdoor play is so important to children! Find ways to incorporate outdoor play for your children. Being outside helps children to connect to the importance of nature, physical activity, while also nurturing creativity of outdoor play.

Editor's Note: The more media my children are exposed to the more I believe in becoming a television free home. What limits do you put on television in your home or do you even have a television?

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: It's never too early to teach children the importance of recycling. PBS Kids has teamed up with Annie Leonard, The Story of Stuff author, to create these educational short cartoons to help teach children the importance of taking care of Mother Earth.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This is one of our top five most profound videos we have shared with our All Things Healing parenting audience, narrated by Oprah Winfrey. Watch as many times as you want and allow it to soak in.
Kahlil Gibran camptures how interconnected we are with our children and yet how individual they truly are. They are their own free thinking growing evolving spirits.

Editor's Note: A beautiful comparison of a variety of parenting styles through history as read by a 10 year old girl. Powerful and thought provoking this video will reinforce gentle parenting and the realization of how far we have come in raising our children.

by Dean Odysseus Yacalis

Today, my son, Phoenix,turns 16. And while the process of growing into a man, has been and continues to be ongoing and fluid, there is a certain undeniable resonance to this moment in the journey that deserves inspection, honoring...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Our friend Dean has written a heartfelt riveting truer than true article about raising his rainbow warrior son and the process of stepping back and letting his wings fly little by little as adult hood encroaches upon his son in two years.

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: Great look into some toys that are fantastic for both young and old.

by Genevieve Simperingham

Your parenting path is unique to you. But to parent from the heart in the way that we as parents want and need to, in the way that our children need, we need to feel confident, we need to do it our way when it’s not necessarily the norm within our family or community...


Editor's Note: Genevieve reminds us to look at the bigger picture rather than get stuck in the confines of our own perfectionism when it comes to parenting peacefully.

 

Family & Parenting


by Carrie Contey, PhD

Babies are people. They are communicating all of the time and want to be seen and heard by their loved ones. Babies cannot manage their emotional experiences without the help of caregivers; they learn how to manage their emotions by feeling the feelings of the people caring for them...

 

Editor's Note: As caregivers, it is only natural for us to want to soothe and quieten a crying baby as quickly as possible. In this article, parenting expert, Carrie Contey, reminds us to first check in with ourselves before rushing in, so that we can better deal with the cause of baby's discomfort.

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 two of two videos. It's great on it's own but you might want to watch part one first. OMG! That sonogram at 30 minutes is phenomenal! See how the outside environment of two parents purposely arguing affects the baby in the womb. It doesn't matter what language the words are being spoken in it's the vibration of the words. Vibration is universal!

ATH Asst. Editors of Family & Parenting

We were recently reading articles in the summer issue of Pathways To Family Wellness Magazine. This issue surrounding "The Dad Factor. The Evolving Role of Conscious Parenting" kind of struck us funny and took us down memory lane. 30 years ago our parenting style was on the cutting edge. Stacy's mom thought she was out of her mind for considering home schooling, not to mention living a holistic life style...

 

Family & Parenting


by Kristin Wartman

Over 5 million children ages four to 17 have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in the United States, and close to 3 million of those children take medication for their symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control. But a new study reported in The Lancet last month found that with a restricted diet alone, many children experienced a significant reduction in symptoms...

 

Editor's Note: Great article on the foods we are feeding our children and the diagnosis of ADHD. I found it highly applicable, especially given that we are in the holiday season and foods we indulge in may be adding to the problems associated with ADHD.

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.
