Parents are the co-creators of their child’s future by the choices they make in raising their children. When parents parent from their intentional conscious self they are more emotionally available to teach their children how to thrive in life, nurturing them in a positive manner.

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We recently were invited to be on Genevieve Kohn's Peaceful Parent's radio show.

Parents are the co-creators of their child’s future by the choices they make in raising their children. When parents parent from their intentional conscious self they are more emotionally available to teach their children how to thrive in life, nurturing them in a positive manner. They learn how to treat themselves and how to treat others with honor and respect.

 

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 from Angela McCoy: 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.

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 from Angela McCoy: 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.

I know I’m usually sharing all sorts of ideas for activities with kids or ways to handle conflict lovingly, but today I want to talk about the importance of taking time AWAY from your kids...

 

Editor's Note from Angela McCoy: Sometimes we all need a reminder that getting away from our kids is important, normal and actually beneficial to ourselves and our relationships. I think this is especially beneficial for new parents who might need a reminder that it's important to get out, recharge and know that it's great to do so , without guilt.

by Jill Hope

Confidence is such an essential quality in living a happy, successful life. Confident people are more likely to ask for what they want, and tend to do it in a way that gets a positive response...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Self-esteem is a very important part in raising a confident functioning child, teenager and adult. It's up to us as parents to instill this characteristic in our children. That's why we wanted to share this article with you. It has some very good tools and tips to put to use that we personally taught our children. Jill Hope provides parents with numerous resources through her writing and courses. If you are needing help she is an excellent resource.

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!

Yesterday I found myself in a store having my reading glasses fixed. As I stood there waiting, I saw a pair of sunglasses that I fell in love with. I tried them on and of course loved them even more...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you are looking for an article to feed your soul this article is for you. Jennifer's genuine compassion and caring for the starving children in the world shines through. If this one doesn't touch you like it touched us there are millions of ways to give & help humanity that will feed your soul.

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 from Angela McCoy: Who knew that sun and dirt equaled healthier children? Fantastic information on how to get out there and enjoy the mud pie making days.

 

 

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 Angela McCoy: Homeschooling is becoming more and more popular. This infographic breaks it down. Both myself and Sherri Carter, Supervising Editor, homeschool our children and we both found this very enlightening. What do you find interesting about the stats on homeschooling?

 

Family & Parenting


by L.R. Knost

It’s been said that it takes ten positives to negate a negative, but the reality most experience is that no amount of positives can fully erase a negative. While we may be able to forgive and move on, forgetting just isn’t a possibility. Though we certainly do have the ability to control our reactions when confronted with criticism...

 

Editor's Note: L.R. Knost shares a personal story of how her uncle's playful teasing when she was a child, ultimately resulted in a negative belief about herself that she carried for years and years. L.R. reminds us that what we say to a child really matters and when we realize we've said something hurtful, the best thing we can do is acknowledge it by apologizing.

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.
