Editor's Note: A beautiful video demonstrating the Montessori tools for babies. Perfect ideas if you have a young one in your family or on your gift list for the holiday season.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We really related to this video as both our families have had past life conversations with our children. This was a regular reoccurrence in our households. Does this resonate with you?

This year’s Winter Solstice is Saturday, December 21. It’s the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. From here on out, the days will continue getting longer, until the Summer Solstice. This celebration of the return of the Sun has been celebrated for centuries by every culture...


Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Angela McCoy and I created Yule Logs with our children this year. It was very easy and the results were beautiful! It was also a great way to include our young children in creating something together, while learning more about the Winter Solstice.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Carol and Stacy review Howard B. Wigglebottom Listens to His Heart and Howard B. Wiggle Bottom The Power of Giving; A Christmas Story. Howard Binkow's entertaining and educational children's series teaches children some very important life skills about giving, sharing, self-confidence, confiding in an adult and how to listen to their heart. His books touch upon a wide range of emotions that all children go through and can easily relate to.

by Kira Wizner

Every day our children learn about living. For them, almost everything is new. Not only are they learning about being a person, they are learning all the skills that we already have under our belt...


Editor's Note: Kira reminds us that in life we are constantly learning something new, whether it be a new adventure like bike riding or simply learning the balance between pushing our children vs encouraging them. This article reminds us to feel the emotions of newness, of feeling nervous when we attempt something new for the first time, and push through knowing that we will look back at our accomplishments and feel great!

by Christina Fletcher

These bodies we carry around with us only represent us to the physical world. When we connect to Who We Really Are then we connect to each other too, as truly we are all one, part of the same whole...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Sometimes parenting is tough. Sometimes you might feel overwhelmed and doubt yourself. This is absolutely normal. When you can learn how to shift your energy and connect to your inner self you are able to relax more and come from a positive parenting perspective. Christina does a great job giving you the tools you need to make this happen.

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.

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.

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.


Family & Parenting


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.

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.
