Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This couldn't be a better fit for the family and parenting community at All Things Healing. This should be read over and over again until it is absorbed. The key point of this is the words, "I'm going to do everything in MY power to change MY vibration about this child." So many parents expect the child to do all the changing when in fact they are really reflecting back how you feel about them. We highly recommend the teachings of Abraham Hicks.

Editor's Note: This is a beautiful video that speaks to the heart of our hopes as parents. With beautiful graphics and gentle reminders, it offers a thoughtful pause and helps parents reconnect to love, compassion and presence with our children.


Family & Parenting

by Linda McGurk

Gnomes were traditionally believed to be supernatural creatures that took care of the animals on people’s farms and on Christmas people would reward them for their work by putting out a bowl of rice pudding. It was important to stay on good terms with the gnomes, since otherwise they could get irritated and subject you to various pranks...


Editor's Note: This gnome home inspired me so much. After the holidays this would be a great project to do with your kids before they go back to school. Get outside, build something fun and enchanting like this gnome home and enjoy the day!

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Abraham answers the questions from a mother of a four year old. Save your money. No child psychologists needed. Abraham has the answers. A must see video!

ATH Co-Editor of Meditation

I teach meditation, mindfulness and wellness. I am not a nutrition “expert” but know enough to instigate change as I am poignantly mindful about not only what goes into my head but also into my body...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Nutrition and health is vitally important for our children. Nutrition supports healthy bodies, the ability to process, learn and retain information. School lunches are in the midst of change across the country. We support finding ways to provide all children with healthy food.

Teaching your child to delay gratification can help him in all sorts of ways. He will learn self-control and willpower. He will also reduce his impulsivity and increase in academic performance. But delaying gratification does not come easily and often won’t develop naturally, unless parents and caregivers help children learn this important skill...


Editor's Note: Shelly Phillips offers great ideas on instilling games that teach our kids how to control their impulsiveness. I loved the idea of implementing games to teach them to wait in a fun yet productive way. The importance of learning to delay gratification will help them as they face challenges in life and better prepare them what lies ahead.

A Note from ATH Supervising Editor, Sherri Carter:  Another EXCELLENT TedTalk! Tony Wagner discusses the current educational system and how "the culture of schooling is radically at odds with the culture of learning that produces innovators" along with referencing his research and suggestions that TEACHERS become the innovators to create change within the current educational system.


Family & Parenting

by John D. Blomquist

The Holiday Season brings its owns set of challenges and emotions to parents separated from their children. The separation may be temporary in situations such as divorce or in instances of military deployment. More heart wrenching are separations resulting from parents whose children may have died or, for whatever reason, they may be distanced from...



Family & Parenting


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.

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.
