Parents work hard to help their child become aware of what’s socially appropriate and inappropriate, what they’re allowed to do or not allowed to do, what tasks need to be achieved and how their words, reactions and actions affect other people...

 

Editor's Note: Powerful article meant to remind us that beyond just teaching our kids social limitations we are to meet their emotions and needs with love and care, careful not to be distracted in the moment of fast correction. I loved this article as it spoke to me personally on moving more gently and slowly.

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...

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 mother whose been doing skype parent coaching and counselling with me for a while recently recounted the story of a big upset that their family had and gave me permission to share it...

 

Editor's Note: Sometimes the only thing there is to do when our child is upset is just be there. Let them feel what they are feeling, acknowledge their emotions and wait. We can't always fix it, and that's okay. We must be there to give our children the tools they need to handle the ups and downs of life and let them know it's okay to feel disappointed and sad at times.

Color Breathing With Your Children.

Here is a fun simple color breathing activity to do with your child to clear, charge and balance their energy field.

You are going to need a container to hold your colored objects...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: On our Intentional Conscious Parenting blog we often write about children's energy fields, Chakras, frequency, meditation, vibration and supporting the inner spirit of the child. We wanted to share a fun, easy activity for parents to do with their children. We feel it is just as important to teach your children about their energy bodies as it is their physical bodies.

When Ruby was about 3 yrs old, I began the yearly tradition of making a garden goddess.  The idea comes from a fantastic book "Celebrating the Great Mother" by Cait Johnson.  We do this craft together before every May Day, so our Goddess is ready to look over our garden and take care of the seeds we are sowing...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Here's a fun May Day activity that we'll be doing at our home! It will be the perfect addition for our new garden space.

Earth Day is upon us once again. What a wonderful day to celebrate and acknowledge our Earth planet. We should all have gratitude in leaps and bounds for without our earth we could not exist. Because of our precious planet we THRIVE...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Earth day is celebrated by both of our families and has been as far back as we can remember. It's just as important any other holiday. Mother Earth provides us everything we need to sustain life here. We are full of gratitude. We hope you enjoy our little article and tips!

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?”
