FAMILY & PARENTING
What is Family & Parenting? Welcome to the Family & Parenting section of All Things Healing. In this section you will find a collection of articles and videos themed around raising children, and, specifically, raising children who are conscious, compassionate and confident. Each month, we will feature a variety of postings that we feel support these ideals and that may help us to become better parents and caregivers.  Family & Parenting is All Things Healing’s online resource of natural and healthy parenting and natural and healthy families.

by Signe Whitson, LSW

What do the phrases “Nice job,” “Very funny,” and “That was clever” all have in common? Each statement in its literal form reads as socially appropriate praise, but in spoken word may more closely resemble caustic, verbal aggression...


Editor's Note: I wasn't quite sure how to talk to my husband about how sarcasm affects young people and then I read this great article on the topic. Whew! Now I'll just have him read this and then we can discuss how we can support each other and our family by removing the sarcasm from our daily lives.

 

Family & Parenting


by Sheryl Paul, MA

In the middle of our ninth reading of Charlotte’s Web, Everest decided to become a vegetarian. Perhaps it’s because he just turned six and he’s more attuned to himself as a separate individual or perhaps it’s due to another cause, but whatever the reason when we read the section about Wilbur being turned into bacon something clicked in for Everest...

 

Editor's Note: Great demonstration of the ebb and flow of parenting and listening to our children. This article reminded me of the time when my own daughter at the age of 2 announced she was a vegan and wouldn't touch meat as long as she lived. Honoring her choice was a challenge but a reminder that she has her own path to discover and I am to facilitate that to the best of my ability.

"Love is the face and body of the Universe. It is the connective tissue of the universe, the stuff of which we are made. Love is the experience of being whole and connected to Universal Divinity...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you are not familiar with Barabara Brennan and her masterful work you are missing out. Her groundbreaking work has been going on for over 20+ years. She's a masterful healer and teaches others how to do the same. We hand picked this quote from her book Hands Of Light A Guide To Healing Through The Human Energy Field. We originally shared it with our parenting community on our Intentional Conscious Parenting blog. It was a huge hit so we thought you'd enjoy it. This book is a must have for every home library.

 

Family & Parenting


by Christina Fletcher

These bodies we carry around with us only represent us to the physical world. When we connect to Who We Really Are then we connect to each other too, as truly we are all one, part of the same whole...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Sometimes parenting is tough. Sometimes you might feel overwhelmed and doubt yourself. This is absolutely normal. When you can learn how to shift your energy and connect to your inner self you are able to relax more and come from a positive parenting perspective. Christina does a great job giving you the tools you need to make this happen.

Editor's Note: This is a sweet video demonstrating the type of authentic or original play we as humans are primed for and crave. I enjoy this reminder that our children thrill when parental connection and hugs come through this playful and gentle form of roughousing that is inherently natural and healing.

 

Family & Parenting


by Randy Gage

Every parent wants the best for their kids. Yet millions of adults unknowingly sabotage their children’s chances for success...

 

Editor's Note: This article makes a very good point about the way that we may unconsciously limit our children. The less we teach our children judgement of any sort, the better, so that they can freely explore the world and be open to all possibilities!

“We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.”
~Epictetus

Do you know the secret to a better marriage? Do you know the best way to connect with your children...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: LISTEN, no wait! Listen! Are you listening? Well this article will tell you a thing or two about listening. The statistics are eye opening. We hope you will spend a few minutes and read Betsy Henry's excellent article on learning secrets to better relationships.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Grab the kids and let's see if you can sit through this fun kids video without tapping your foot and smiling.

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

A little melt my heart moment the other day that I thought I’d share. We sat at the dinner table to eat. My 16 year old son looking sad and disappointed apologized for burning the bottom of the omelette. His eleven year old sister quickly responded “it’s okay Osh we all learn from our mistakes all the time, I think the food looks great and I really appreciated you making it”...

 

Editor's Note: We all have moments of not being at peace. Reminders of centering ourselves and being conscious of where our minds are and what we are projecting are certainly helpful in making sure we get back to that peaceful state we all want to operate from.

by Traci McGrath

Last weekend, the boys went away with daddy for a trip to the park and I finally got our little rhythm chart done. It was so easy (it had to be, I am not crafty.) It’s made of watercolor paper, mod-podged onto an art canvas...

 

Editor's Note: Traci presents a great idea on creating a family rhythm chart. Let it inspire you and spark your creativity in developing your own families chart.

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 Sharon Ballantine

The Law of Attraction doesn't necessarily deliver in a tit–for-tat manner. This can be a challenging concept for people to grasp, but very important, especially when we are teaching our children about The Law and how to apply it in their lives.

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We have been writing as friends for several years now. Law of attraction is one of our favorite topics. We came across Sharon Ballantine who is a writer in the conscious parenting field. She graciously wrote an original article on this subject just for our parenting audience at All Things Healing. 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.
