by Shelly Phillips, MA

I know I’m usually sharing all sorts of ideas for activities with kids or ways to handle conflict lovingly, but today I want to talk about the importance of taking time AWAY from your kids...

 

Editor's Note: Sometimes we all need a reminder that getting away from our kids is important, normal and actually beneficial to ourselves and our relationships. I think this is especially beneficial for new parents who might need a reminder that it's important to get out, recharge and know that it's great to do so , without guilt.

 

Family & Parenting


by Kathleen Boucher

Wouldn’t it be great if each child born on earth came with their own unique instruction manual? How valuable would that be? And yet for all the books written to help parents, I have not found any that discuss work ethic. But hold on. I can hear you saying,” Wait a minute we are doing the best job that we can...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: There are so many tools we as parents want to instill in our children. A strong work ethic is one of them. Demonstrate to your children how to stand out in the crowd and go the extra mile! Kathleen does a great job in her recent article bringing this important but sometimes neglected topic to light.

ATH Asst. Editors of Family & Parenting

Whether you're a new mom, a seasoned mom or an empty nester, throughout the daily bump and grind of life it easy to forget how to take care of ourselves. Look at life closely. It's important that we take time to establish an emotionally involved creative space, allowing our self time to nurture and plug into our youthful inner child...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: It is so easy to get lost in a day to day routine and become stagnant forgetting who you really are and how important it is to take care of you. Without you being balanced and healthy you are not at your full potential. Here's some inviting ideas to begin nurturing yourself again.

Editor's Note: I adore this video! My children and I dance walk all the time and yes...sometimes it's just me, with them giggling behind me. Either way, dance walking always brightens my day and has been a lifesaver in challenging moments! Hope it inspires more playfulness in your family life too!

by Shelly Phillips, MA

I knew there would be unexpected challenges when I became a parent, but there have been some things that have completely shocked me. Even though I’ve been a nanny, preschool teacher, and an older sister for most of my life, the innate ability of our darling child to wreak complete havoc on our lives still astounds me...

 

Editor's Note: Hilarious view of real life events that inspired these 4 particular rules. Shelly will make you laugh but most of all cause us all to relate to the wonderful yet weird world of being a parent.

 

Family & Parenting


by Jennifer Laurent

Yesterday I found myself in a store having my reading glasses fixed. As I stood there waiting, I saw a pair of sunglasses that I fell in love with. I tried them on and of course loved them even more...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you are looking for an article to feed your soul this article is for you. Jennifer's genuine compassion and caring for the starving children in the world shines through. If this one doesn't touch you like it touched us there are millions of ways to give & help humanity that will feed your soul.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We felt this was a great video to share because it's so down to earth. It's a mom talking about her experience with her daughter. Lisa does a fantastic job showing how she uses shadow work to work through her own emotional issues brought to light by her daughter.

 

Family & Parenting


by Beth Rhines

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.

 

Family & Parenting


 

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?
 

Family & Parenting


 

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.

 

Family & Parenting


 

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.

 

Family & Parenting


 

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.

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.
