Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We felt this was a great video to share because it's so down to earth. It's a mom talking about her experience with her daughter. Lisa does a fantastic job showing how she uses shadow work to work through her own emotional issues brought to light by her daughter.

 

Family & Parenting


by Beth Rhines

When I was a child, there was a young spruce tree in my yard. Its branches were thick with needles. I would get on my hands and knees and crawl through the branches towards the trunk of the tree. The poking needles were a small inconvenience, because just inside the perimeter the needles disappeared and what emerged was a protected space that became my special hideout...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Outdoor play is so important to children! Find ways to incorporate outdoor play for your children. Being outside helps children to connect to the importance of nature, physical activity, while also nurturing creativity of outdoor play.

Editor's Note: The more media my children are exposed to the more I believe in becoming a television free home. What limits do you put on television in your home or do you even have a television?
 

Family & Parenting


by Jennifer Chung

Inter-generational relationships are a great way for children to get a sense of history, context, and perspective.  Often, adults, other than a parent, can connect with your child in ways a parent simply can’t.  I’ve seen family friends help teenagers through a rough time at school, grandparents give insightful friendship advice, and uncles get their nieces and nephews to try a new activity. Where a child might be standoffish to their parent, they are more willing to listen to relatives and less likely to talk back...

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.

This Sunday, June 16th, is Father’s Day in the U.S. Whether you’re honoring your dad in a waste-free way, cooking him something fresh and healthy to eat or just sitting down together to reminisce, here are some very cool dads — please note anyone else!...

 

Editor's Note: Great look at some very inspiring fathers who will amaze you!

 

Family & Parenting


by Sylvia Poareo, MSW

A little girl who just became a big sister, is found in the baby’s room, leaning over the baby’s bassinet.  She is overheard asking the baby in a whisper, “Tell me what God is like, I’m starting to forget...”

 

Editor's Note: This article affected me greatly. The word honor was what struck me most. Honoring our children's feelings as wisdom and listening to their instincts is important. This article offers great steps to help guide you on nurturing your child's inner voice.

 

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.

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

When children are upset and unsettled, they need empathy and connection before solutions or suggestions.  They need to get their feelings out and to see that we’re noticing and caring about those feelings...

 

Editor's Note: Sometimes it's the hardest thing to do but keeping calm and composed while our children are grumpy is a challenge. We have all been there and felt that moment of frustration and annoyance but Genevieve reminds us to approach these situations with love and calmness and stay focused on peaceful parenting rather than react with anything but sweetness.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This is one of our top five most profound videos we have shared with our All Things Healing parenting audience, narrated by Oprah Winfrey. Watch as many times as you want and allow it to soak in.
Kahlil Gibran camptures how interconnected we are with our children and yet how individual they truly are. They are their own free thinking growing evolving spirits.

 

Family & Parenting


 

Editor's Note: A beautiful comparison of a variety of parenting styles through history as read by a 10 year old girl. Powerful and thought provoking this video will reinforce gentle parenting and the realization of how far we have come in raising our children.

 

Family & Parenting


by Margaret Paul, PhD

In a phone session with Gerald, one of my clients, he expressed to me that he was feeling very sad about his son, Luc. Luc, 29 years old, was not doing much with his life, and Gerald was berating himself for how he had parented Luc...

 

Editor's Note: Great reminder that our children have their own path to discover and to allow them the space to do that rather than judge, criticize or take their accomplishments or lack thereof personally.

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.
