by Bruce Buccio

How do you view and define discipline as a parent? Finding the right balance that works with your child is your prerogative, within reason of course. What would happen if you were to start reasoning with your child with rationale and good understanding of the issue as if you were ... mentoring...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Bruce Buccio provides healthy conflict resolution examples between parent and child. One of the reasons we really appreciate this article is the guilt free examples Bruce provides. Bruce teaches parents how to be in control of their emotions at the time of conflict instead of their emotions controlling them.

 

Family & Parenting


by Laura Markham, PhD

What did you learn before you were eight?  That you're a capable person, worthy of adoration and an abundant life, lovable exactly as you are, even with all of your messy imperfections, bodily functions, anger, fear, and neediness?...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Dr. Laura Markham is one of my favorite authors. Here's a wonderful article about creating awareness around your own childhood wounds and how they can affect parenting. When we take time for self-growth and love, we have more love and compassion to give to our children. Beautiful reminder and helpful advise.

Penney shares some very powerful information surrounding forgiveness. She begins by sharing a quote from Joan Borysenko, "Forgiveness is not the misguided act of condoning irresponsible, hurtful behavior, Nor is it a superficial turning of the other cheek that leaves us feeling victimized and martyred...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Children sometimes assume the same limiting beliefs as their parents and take on their parents feelings and judgements as their own. Carol explores teaching children the ability to forgive and let go.

 

Family & Parenting


by Margaret Paul, PhD

Do your children see you as happy and peaceful, or do they see you as angry, depressed or overburdened? Learn how important it is to good parenting for you to learn to take emotional responsibility for your own feelings...

 

Editor's Note: In this article, Margaret Paul, discusses a form of giving feedback to our children that is more valuable and effective than traditional praise. There is alot of information on 'avoiding praise' nowadays, and this approach gives parents something helpful that they can do instead, to empower children and preserve their excitement about learning.

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: It's never too early to teach children the importance of recycling. PBS Kids has teamed up with Annie Leonard, The Story of Stuff author, to create these educational short cartoons to help teach children the importance of taking care of Mother Earth.

by Shelly Phillips, MA

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.

by Maureen and Shanti from Twig & Toadstool

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.

by Sherri Carter,
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!

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: Hilarious! This video will have you laughing out loud!

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.
