Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Jessi and Squeaks show you how a tiny seed -- like the kind you eat in your trail mix! -- grows into a big plant!

 

 

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...

 

 

Family & Parenting


by Carol Lawrence

There are very subtle, simple ways you can connect with your child on their level. My sons are now in their twenties, I woke up this morning with vivid memories of playing video games with them. Video games were not my most favorite thing to do, but the time we spent together is priceless.

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: A personal example of how you can connect with your children on a deeper level doing activities together they enjoy doing.

Editor's Note: I recently attended a workshop with Susan Stiffelman and very much appreciated the way she breaks down parenting concepts into usable pieces. Here she gives some great examples of how to validate and connect with children's feelings before (or instead of) giving advice. I especially love the 'comic book' response examples!
 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

Every child deserves to not feel shamed by their parents. If your child feels free to show you their true feelings, if shaming inadvertently happens, they will show you their pain and you can restore their dignity by owning and repairing what has happened...

 

Editor's Note: Genevieve reminds us to be aware of our words and most importantly guard against shaming our children. Through dealing with our own pasts and recognizing where we might have experienced shame we can heal those aspects within ourselves and prevent the recurrence in our own children's lives.

 

Family & Parenting


by Michael Mendizza

After viewing our interview with Jean Liedloff, a parent said, “Jean talks about the effects of over protective parenting. I am so guilty of this. My son is much more capable when he is on his own than when he knows I am looking. I am wondering how I could undo this?...”


Editor's Note: In this article, Michael Mendizza succinctly reminds us of some shifts necessary to support our children's innate potential and capacity. It is a wonderful reminder to let go and trust our natural design.

 

Family & Parenting


by Ben Murray

Toddlers require 11 to 14 hours of sleep every day, but the average toddler sleeps 10 hours or less. If your toddler isn't getting enough sleep, then you may be able to help them get the rest they need by modifying their diet, inspecting their mattress and cutting out exposure to electronics before bedtime.  

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Tips For Helping Your Toddler Sleep Soundly is an article you really need to read if your toddler isn't sleeping soundly. These excellent tips can put you on the path for some much needed shut eye!

 

 

Family & Parenting


by Shelly Phillips MA

We all want what’s best for our kids, but with all of the conflicting information out there, sometimes it’s difficult to tell exactly what that might be...

 

Editor's Note: Who knew that sun and dirt equaled healthier children? Fantastic information on how to get out there and enjoy the mud pie making days.

Editor's Note from Shelly Phillips: This is one of my top ten favorite Ted talks of all time. Aimee Mullins has turned her "disability" into a super ability. This video has really changed the way I think about "disabilities." I hope you enjoy it!

"If we do not FEEL our feelings, we leave a hole in our heart. Teach children early that its okay to feel your feelings."


~Vicki Savini - Ignite Your Light

 

 

Family & Parenting


 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: "You cannot speak or offer action without thought-vibration occurring at the same time; however, you are often offering words or action. Children or babies learn to mimic the vibration of the adults who surround them long before they learn to mimic their words."
~ Abraham Hicks

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.
