Ever wonder why we have the impulse to rock babies to help them calm down?

Studies show that rocking, spinning and other physical movement through space helps children’s brain development and their ability to pay attention, by stimulating the vestibular (inner ear) system...

 

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: This is such a fantastic article providing a great insight into why it's so important to involve our children in movement.

I was recently given some lovely white playsilks and it got me thinking... natural dyes... hmmm... what colors we could create?


I researched the possibilities and choose the simplest ways I could find.

Here is what we came up with...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Twig & Toadstool! Their blog and Pinterest boards are full of great activities. I have personally done this craft and the silks were just beautiful! I ordered silks from Dharma Trading Co. (8mm habotai scarves, 30x30 is a nice size, but they come larger and smaller). My son has a variety of playsilks that spark lots of creative play. The silks become superhero capes, ghosts, pirate gear, or many, many other possibilities. They also make a great alternative in the Easter basket to plastic grass.

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: WOW! Just WOW! This is a must see, especially if you have a son. It reminds me of the quote "the way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice" by Peggy O'Mara.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you want to teach your children meditation, this is the best guided meditation video for children that we have seen in a long time. It is simple, simple, simple. Filled with gratitude. This video is a great tool to help calm a child down, or ground and balance them or just create a few minutes of down time. We encourage you to join your child for a few minutes of relaxation. This is a perfect bite sized video to hold the little one's attention or for a child with a short attention span.

Co-Editor of Family & Parenting

Hello everyone!! WOW! What a whirlwind of change these past couple of months! After a lot of soul searching, I’ve decided to step down as the Supervising Editor of ATH. The main reason for this change is a new project needing to be birthed, requiring more time that I needed to make space- and time- for, PurpleWillowGypsy.com. Change is always difficult, even welcomed change, but especially when needing to let go of something so loved. I’ve taken time to get resettled, refocused and am now ready to move forward...


Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: I love being with ATH! I started as one of the Editors in PsychoSpiritual, and for the past year and a half, I was the Supervising Editor. Now, I'm stepping into a new role, one of the Editors in Family & Parenting. I look forward to settling in and offering even more great content for you!

by Simon Paul Harrison

The tools and techniques to support children in re-connecting with their birthrights of child-like wonder, love for learning and natural creativity are so simple yet so powerful. The difference that one individual can and does make for children is staggering. Everyone has these gifts to give...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: In the spirit of how this article is written, the possibilities of a new mindset of how we raise and teach all children could become a blueprint for a happier way of living. Simon Paul Harrison's book The Truly Alive Child For those who seek a grander vision for our children is a must read for any parent on a conscious parenting path.

A couple of years ago I was driving my daughter home from high school, and she shared something from her Human Development class that day.  The students were asked to draw an illustration of their emotional state. “And mom,” she said, “everyone drew pictures of stacks of books and things like that.  I think I’m the only one who’s not stressed..."

 

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: Beautiful steps to follow with the goal on less stressed kids in mind. Given the world we live in and all that we face daily these steps are incredibly helpful.

Parents are the co-creators of their child’s future by the choices they make in raising their children. When parents parent from their intentional conscious self they are more emotionally available to teach their children how to thrive in life, nurturing them in a positive manner.

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We recently were invited to be on Genevieve Kohn's Peaceful Parent's radio show.

Parents are the co-creators of their child’s future by the choices they make in raising their children. When parents parent from their intentional conscious self they are more emotionally available to teach their children how to thrive in life, nurturing them in a positive manner. They learn how to treat themselves and how to treat others with honor and respect.

A little melt my heart moment the other day that I thought I’d share. We sat at the dinner table to eat. My 16 year old son looking sad and disappointed apologized for burning the bottom of the omelette. His eleven year old sister quickly responded “it’s okay Osh we all learn from our mistakes all the time, I think the food looks great and I really appreciated you making it”...

 

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: We all have moments of not being at peace. Reminders of centering ourselves and being conscious of where our minds are and what we are projecting are certainly helpful in making sure we get back to that peaceful state we all want to operate from.

In the middle of our ninth reading of Charlotte’s Web, Everest decided to become a vegetarian. Perhaps it’s because he just turned six and he’s more attuned to himself as a separate individual or perhaps it’s due to another cause, but whatever the reason when we read the section about Wilbur being turned into bacon something clicked in for Everest...

 

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: Great demonstration of the ebb and flow of parenting and listening to our children. This article reminded me of the time when my own daughter at the age of 2 announced she was a vegan and wouldn't touch meat as long as she lived. Honoring her choice was a challenge but a reminder that she has her own path to discover and I am to facilitate that to the best of my ability.

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.
