by Andy Smithson LMSW

It was just another day. There wasn’t anything particularly different or note worthy about it. To be quite honest, it was actually one of my more disconnected days...

 

Editor's Note: Great reminders! I find myself going back to this article often to remind myself to pay attention to those I love.

 

Family & Parenting


by Shelly Phillips, MA

I know I’m usually sharing all sorts of ideas for activities with kids or ways to handle conflict lovingly, but today I want to talk about the importance of taking time AWAY from your kids...

 

Editor's Note: Sometimes we all need a reminder that getting away from our kids is important, normal and actually beneficial to ourselves and our relationships. I think this is especially beneficial for new parents who might need a reminder that it's important to get out, recharge and know that it's great to do so , without guilt.

 

Family & Parenting


by Shelly Birger Phillips, MA

I think one of the most challenging lessons I’ve learned as a teacher and as a parent is when NOT to intervene. It is actually excruciating for me to hear a child struggling and not rush over to help. But sometimes doing nothing is actually the best thing we can do for a child...

 

Editor's Note: Perfect reminder for parents to step back and allow our children to achieve things without our help. Instead of stepping in and offering assistance or taking over because it's more convenient for us Shelly gives us a moment to realize our children are learning how to navigate life and we need to allow them the chance to do it.

 

Family & Parenting


by Janet Lansbury

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: 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.

 

Family & Parenting


 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: A mom and Abraham discuss children who are labeled and how children are coming into this world unconformable. Until people stop needing people to conform to all their rules they will continue coming in this way. Abraham gives tips on unmanageable children, loving them unconditionally and aligning yourself before you begin your parenting day. It's worth every syllable. We hope you tune in!

 

 

Family & Parenting


by Rebecca A. Wright

Children’s books are full of simple but profound life lessons. It’s one of the best parts of being a parent, rediscovering these stories and their riches...


Editor's Note: I love this real take by Rebecca Wright on what it's like to navigate between our needs and those of our children. It's so challenging to do this well.

 

Family & Parenting


by Sandra Fazio

So often, we take for granted our children’s feelings. We just assume they are fine, they are managing all that is within their heart space and they would tell us if they need something from us – as they are rarely shy from asking for things. These assumptions create blinders along the road of life in which we are traveling with our children and many times we miss the signs and cues along the way until we crash head on with them. 

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We really enjoy Sandra Fazio's writings. Her true intentions are clearly straight from the heart, being in the present moment and dealing with/facing parenting head on.

Family & Parenting


by David Patten

Born to well-educated parents in Chicago as an autism-spectrum child, David Patten was repetitively misdiagnosed in the 1950’s, a time when autism was little understood. After a youth of a severe disorientation and isolation, the seriously dyslexic Patten made a living dealing drugs and engaging in other street-level enterprises...

 

Note from Editor, Sherri Carter: Here is Part 2 of a Q&A with David Patten, author of Dummy, A Memoir, which goes through David's journey with autism, a loving mother, and transformation. A very inspirational story! See Part 1.

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.
