Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We wanted to share with you a fun activity to do with your children for Valentine's Day or anytime of the year. This enthusiastic little girl will show you how to create a heart-shaped pizza made with love.

Family & Parenting

by Kathleen Boucher

If I were to do a survey about what parents want for their children the top two answers would be “I want them to be happy and I want them to be successful...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Kathleen's been around children for 35 years as a registered nurse. She's hoping to enlighten many parents on the conscious parenting path on how they can empower their children with confidence and self-esteem. We really like how she asks the parents if they are having their child try something new because it's something they desire? Or is it because the parent desires it?


Family & Parenting

by Stacy Toten

They say a pictures worth a thousand words, well I may just have to agree with that...Kids are just so darn curious about everything, the world, bugs, people, stores, animals, bed time books, etc...

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Curiosity is a natural instinct for all of our children. Here is Stacy's granddaughter, with her magnifying glass and her globe, she was ready to explore the world.


Family & Parenting

by Loren Buckner, LCSW

Many adults want to deny the significance of what happened to them when they were young and vulnerable. Others believe that they should "just get over" any problems they had as they were growing up. The truth is childhood is an important part of who we all are...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We have really enjoyed working with Loren Buckner. She has a tremendous amount of parenting wisdom to teach about the emotional challenges of family life and how to deal with them. Upon reviewing her book and interviewing her we feel Loren is a great resource for the All Things Healing family and parenting community.

Family & Parenting

by Jill Hope

Confidence is such an essential quality in living a happy, successful life. Confident people are more likely to ask for what they want, and tend to do it in a way that gets a positive response...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Self-esteem is a very important part in raising a confident functioning child, teenager and adult. It's up to us as parents to instill this characteristic in our children. That's why we wanted to share this article with you. It has some very good tools and tips to put to use that we personally taught our children. Jill Hope provides parents with numerous resources through her writing and courses. If you are needing help she is an excellent resource.


Family & Parenting

by Vicki Savini

When you hear Aha, you may think it is a good thing because ‘Aha’ usually means that you are becoming aware of something, but when you hear what AHA stands in this article, I’m not so sure you’ll feel the same way…


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Author and teacher Vicki Savini writes from her her heart and from experience as a teacher. In this article she shares first hand experiences about what the kids of this generation are going through. We really like how in this article she goes into depth on how to stop making excuses for our children, stop trying to provide them all the answers and instead teach them tools that will empower them to become problem solvers and more balanced human beings. Tools that will last a lifetime!

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Have you thought about giving your children wings?


Family & Parenting


Editor's Note: I recently attended a workshop with Susan Stiffelman and very much appreciated the way she breaks down parenting concepts into usable pieces. Here she gives some great examples of how to validate and connect with children's feelings before (or instead of) giving advice. I especially love the 'comic book' response examples!

Family & Parenting


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you haven't had the pleasure of listening to Eckhart Tolle or reading his work after watching this video we are sure you'll become a fan! We encourage you to search him out more.


Family & Parenting


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Dr. Shefali Tsabary says what children really want has no price tag. Watch as she explains why full, engaged parental presence is truly priceless. Plus, find out what to do if your child wants the material items their friends have.


Family & Parenting

by Cyndi Dale

I can’t count how many times I’ve been certain that Gabe’s issues were a result of absorbed energy rather than a particular germ or emotive problem. Sometimes he picks up my energy, other times, his father’s. Because he, like so many children, is such an open child, however, he’s fair game for attracting feelings, thoughts, illnesses, and frankly, even entities from friends, relatives, and more...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Cyndi's article is jam-packed with very insightful knowledge and tools to teach your children how to be responsible for their own energetic boundaries and how to release unwanted, unhealthy energy they may have intuitively, empathically picked up. Cyndi teaches the use of colors, stones, breath and connecting with divine source.

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.
