Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Here's a great, fun, easy, non-toxic, colorful craft that you and your kids can make for gifts for all occasions or just make it for yourself. We like it so much we are going to make some ourselves.

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

Most parents of young children struggle to varying degrees with their child’s huge, and what can seem insatiable, need for their attention.  When our children are little, the demands on our time, energy and patience can feel so overwhelming...

 

Editor's Note: The importance of spending one on one time with our children is huge. Genevieve Simperingham reminds us of the incredible lessons our children learn when they see how important they are to us and that we find the time to fully engage in their lives. These moments will not only strengthen the parent/child bond but also lay the groundwork for them as they become adults and have their own families.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: A brilliant spiritual educational video on what to teach or not to teach your children. If you or your spouse have different spiritual or religious beliefs, that could actually be a plus for your child. This ten minute video is worth every second of your time.

 

Family & Parenting


by Alexandra Folz

My 11 year old daughter and I decided to publish our personal letters to one another after discussing their potential benefit to readers...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Alaxandra Folz takes us on a seven year journey with her daughters food allergies/sensistivities. They finally reached the end goal when her daughter turned 11 years old and they finally got their answers they had been searching for. Grab a kleenex, the dialogue that follows between this mom and daughters letters to each other is profound!

 

 

"Your three year old self knew. You knew it was hard to focus, sit still and follow directions. Something inside drove you ten steps ahead and told you to leap outta bounds." ~ Alexandra Folz.

 

Family & Parenting


by Tina Payne Bryson, PhD

One reason we get these monosyllabic responses is probably that our kids aren’t emotionally invested in this particular conversation.  Even if they were, though there’s another factor that often keeps them from going into the complexity of a particular emotion:  they haven’t yet learned to think about their feelings in a sophisticated way that recognizes the varied and rich emotional life within them...

 

Editor's Note: Navigating the realm of emotions with children can be a complex and challenging experience for both parents and kids. Tina Bryson encourages us to foster our children's emotional development by talking with them about the wide range of emotions within them.

 

Family & Parenting


by Lyssa Armenta

Many parents-to-be are blissfully unaware of the challenges that come with getting your baby to sleep. Naturally, the majority are not even thinking about how they will approach this and probably have a dreamy image of laying their baby in their crib to fall asleep peacefully. Experienced parents know that is not the typical situation and were quite surprised by how overwhelming sleep time can be...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We really love Lyssa's point here that there are alternatives to getting your baby to sleep. Old thinking, old ways we feel need to be laid to rest. Letting your baby cry themselves to sleep in their crib is not the most healthy alternative as Lyssa so eloquently points out. There are many alternatives to choose from. Please new parents seek out these new ways.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Earth day is upon us. We thought this cute little video would be appropriate to get your child in the mood for celebrating earth day!

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: This is a great, fun, bouncy, catchy educational video highlighting all the different things you can do to help the planet. Happy Earth Day!

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: The next time your kids ask to make something in the kitchen here is a very healthy, fun, tasty recipe they will have a lot of fun making.

 

Family & Parenting


by Alexandra Folz

My daughter says to me, “I’m having a hard time sitting down. I feel restless staying in one place. And I’m getting a lot of wedgies.” (Y’all know what a “wedgie” is, right? If not, Wikipedia will set you straight.)

“Ah,” I say. “I can relate. Not to the wedgies, but to the restless feeling of out-growing your shell and needing to open further to accommodate more energy...”

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Alexandra shares a real-life mother daughter conversation about expanding her spiritual self, being in the present moment, and knowing when to talk and when to listen.

 

Family & Parenting


by Carol Lawrence

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 Andrea Fox

There’s just no way around this: Whether you’ve grown up in a dysfunctional home or in a Leave-It-To-Beaver-esque family, when you have kids you will do things like or despite the way you were parented...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Andrea Fox does a tremendous job addressing an issue all parents face, which is parenting from what you where taught as a child or parenting from a conscious state that we call intentional conscious parenting. We love how she shared her personal experience that occurred with her five year old daughter. She had to stop and ask herself how she was going to handle a certain situation. Enjoy!

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.
