Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Author Catherine Crawford shares how she is painting a new light on intuition. When she was out on tour for her book she saw how hungry parents are for answers regarding their intuitive children. She touches upon some very valuable energetic tools. Parents with intuitive children could really benefit from this. Take a listen and let us know what you think.

 

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 Shelly Phillips, MA

Ever wonder why we have the impulse to rock babies to help them calm down?

Studies show that rocking, spinning and other physical movement through space helps children’s brain development and their ability to pay attention, by stimulating the vestibular (inner ear) system...

 

 Editor's Note: This is such a fantastic article providing a great insight into why it's so important to involve our children in movement.

 

Family & Parenting


by Vicki Savini

It breaks my heart when I see a child getting a bad wrap because of rambunctious behavior. When a child has this kind of energy there is generally something going on deep inside of them that stems from a belief that they are not good enough...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We were very pleased when Vicki Savini, a loving mother, teacher and author offered to share this enlightening article about a conversation she had with her son and about her camp for boys that took place this summer. We believe many parents will relate to Vicki's heartfelt talk with her son. "Tonight, while putting him to bed we had a talk and what came out of that talk was truth." ~ Vicki Savini

by Maureen and Shanti from Twig & Toadstool

I was recently given some lovely white playsilks and it got me thinking... natural dyes... hmmm... what colors we could create?


I researched the possibilities and choose the simplest ways I could find.

Here is what we came up with...

 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Twig & Toadstool! Their blog and Pinterest boards are full of great activities. I have personally done this craft and the silks were just beautiful! I ordered silks from Dharma Trading Co. (8mm habotai scarves, 30x30 is a nice size, but they come larger and smaller). My son has a variety of playsilks that spark lots of creative play. The silks become superhero capes, ghosts, pirate gear, or many, many other possibilities. They also make a great alternative in the Easter basket to plastic grass.

Family & Parenting


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 Cyndi Dale

I was nervous. A mom I’d never met was bringing her son to see me for an energy healing session. He was in his 20’s and had not spoken or walked in his life...

 

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: "To practice grounding, I invite children to pretend that they are trees. Like a tree, they are fully rooted in the earth. They are surrounded by strong bark. Their branches extend to the skies, drinking in the bright sun." Cyndi Dale

 

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 Christina Fletcher

"We are spiritual, resonating beings. What we feel sends off ripples through our being, and what we think about, the perspective from which we see what comes our way, create the feeling space we walk around in."...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We present you with another stupendous parenting article. This article is on the law of attraction from a mom's perspective. Christina Fletcher captures the sometimes overwhelming day to day events that take place while parenting. She provides excellent examples of what can go wrong and solutions to shift your law of attraction point and begin resonating with which you wish to manifest.

 

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: The past twenty-five years both our families have raised our children with the mind set of intentional conscious parenting. This is not a new concept for us, it has been apart of our lives and our children's lives their whole lives. That's why we started our Intentional Conscious Parenting blog 4 years ago. So when we had the opportunity to be one of the first reviewers of Dr. Shefali's Book, The Conscious Parent back then we were honored to share her with our audience.

When we heard she was going to be on Super Soul Sunday in June 2014 we were ecstatic. The topic of conscious parenting to reach a global platform with Oprah Winfrey, the biggest in the world right now is a dream come true.

FAMILY & PARENTING
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.
