Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We are so happy to announce our parenting book is getting closer to being released, it's currently in the editing stages. We are going to be sharing with parents highlights and regular parenting tips from our upcoming book. Here is our first conscious parenting tip.



Family & Parenting

by Marcy Axness, PhD

This mental force that can change the brain, can certainly change the download of the mommy mind meld. What we hand down to our children as we parent is not simply a linear, one-for-one duplicate of ourselves, and that is where the stunning possibilities of parenting for peace lie: through refining our own consciousness we throw the door open on our children’s potential...

Editor's Note from Sylvia Poareo: This is the second part of Dr. Axness' wonderful article. In the first part of this article Dr. Axness describes the way babies naturally imitate their parent's emotional state and beliefs about the world. Here she gives many wonderful suggestions on how to heal and take care of ourselves to provide the models our children need. This article is a gem!


Family & Parenting

by Marcy Axness, PhD

Imitation is the young child’s primary form of learning, which is why one of my first bits of guidance to parents coming to me for counseling is to cut down by at least 50% the sheer number of words they say to their young child. Children learn from who we are and what we do far more than from what we say. And credible leaders don’t yammer on and on...


Editor's Note from Sylvia Poareo: This is the first part of Dr. Axness' wonderful article. As someone who is passionate about supporting mothers in their emotional self care, I was thrilled to read this article! I say it over and over again, but here is wonderful support for the truth that a "happy, relaxed, and nurtured mom equals a happy, relaxed and nurtured child." It is in your child's best interest to get all the support you need!

Editor's Note from Sylvia Poareo: I enjoyed both the laughing moments as well as the sweet pauses of this video. It is so tender to see them communing with each other!

Family & Parenting

by Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom

Well, temper tantrums are indicators that something is out of balance, not only behaviorally, but probably physiologically.  And since symptoms are the key to choosing the proper homeopathic remedy, then this aberrant behavior can actually become useful in addressing the underlying cause...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We have used homeopathic remedies for our families for many many years. When we heard of Joette Calabrese we knew we had to approach her to write something special for our parenting audience. She does a great job breaking down key homeopathic remedies every parent should have in their medicine cabinet.


Family & Parenting

by Sylvia Poareo, MSW

A parent’s self care is often a missing piece in parenting advice.  We need to be as loving and respectful to ourselves as we are with our children.  Therefore, when addressing whining and complaining, we must strike a balance between attending to underlying feelings AND setting loving boundaries to avoid negative behavior and communication patterns...


Editor's Note from Sylvia Poareo: Whining and complaining is one of the most annoying challenges parents face...and yet we often unconsciously reinforce it. In this article, I share a personal experience with my son and offer the reminder that an invaluable part of parenting in challenging situations is being self-loving.


Family & Parenting


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This is the perfect art activity that is going to require parents to do most of the project. Worth every second. Cost pennies to make. You might have most of the stuff laying around. This would be a cute edition to your picnic table. Some children would love this for little night-lights in their room or add it to the back seat with them while driving around at night in the car.


Family & Parenting

by Sheryl Paul, MA

As I was rocking my baby to sleep for his nap this morning several hours earlier than his regular nap time, I remembered my first weeks with Everest and how uncertain I often felt as a new mother. As sleep has always been one of our most challenging areas (with both boys), I often consulted The Books to see if I could glean a new tip that would help me help my baby to learn how to sleep...


Editor's Note: In this article, Sheryl Paul, M.A, explains how societal expectations can foster much anxiety and insecurity for mothers, and anyone involved in a huge life transition. She shares her wonderful insight on welcoming this and other life transitions with gentleness and self-acceptance.

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.
