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.

 

Family & Parenting


by Leslie Freeman

We stood looking at his little dead body. Lifeless, just lying there on the ground. Kai looked at me in terror and the tears began to fall. His pet mouse was dead...

 

Editor's Note: A few weeks ago I got really frustrated at story time when the librarian changed the words of "I Know an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly" to remove "perhaps she'll die" from the end of the song. If we can't sing, talk, and think about death when it's not happening, then how will we deal with it when it actually happens?! Leslie Freeman addresses this topic head on as she explores grieving with her children over the loss of their pet mouse.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We came across the most adorable, cutest children's video about a seed becoming a tree. Sit down with your children and listen while the narrator reads you a story.

 

Family & Parenting


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...

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: A fun and easy educational video to use to demonstrate and teach your children about "tapping."
EFT ~ Emotional Freedom Technique is a spectacular way to share how to release unhealthy emotions, fears, stresses, illnesses and build your confidence. EFT takes positive affirmations to a whole other level. You are tapping into and stimulating your meridian systems. Come laugh along with Brad and his young assistant

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.

 

Family & Parenting


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 Eden Kozlowski,
ATH Co-Editor of Meditation

I am the mother of a child with special needs. My young teenage daughter was born with pachygyria, which basically means her brain decided to be structurally different from the norm. In the old days she probably would have been labeled "retarded" (what a word, huh?!) and in a sense, that is what her brain did – it didn't advance fully...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Do you have a special needs child? Or do you know anybody else who does? This article is chalked full of wisdom, sensitivity, information, empathy and the most amount of positively driven helpful tools that we've ever read on reducing stress for parents or caregivers or anyone involved on a daily basis who is taking care of special needs children.

 

Family & Parenting


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.

"All Our Dreams Can Come True - If We Have The Courage To Pursue Them."

Family & Parenting


by Kira Wizner

Every day our children learn about living. For them, almost everything is new. Not only are they learning about being a person, they are learning all the skills that we already have under our belt...

 

Editor's Note: Kira reminds us that in life we are constantly learning something new, whether it be a new adventure like bike riding or simply learning the balance between pushing our children vs encouraging them. This article reminds us to feel the emotions of newness, of feeling nervous when we attempt something new for the first time, and push through knowing that we will look back at our accomplishments and feel great!

A Missing Key to Building Childrens Self-Esteem
