Editor's Note: A delightful project to create with your children that would be fantastic for the Halloween celebrations coming up. Nothing says fun like glow sticks and glitter!


Family & Parenting

by Genevieve Simperingham

This chart gives some pointers that can be a quick reminder of some of the feelings that may be driving certain behaviours and furthermore some of the possible unmet needs that need to gain attention before the child can begin to feel better, hence act better...


Editor's Note: Fantastic quick reference guide that may help you resolve issues quicker. Genevieve offers a lovely list that I think can be very beneficial, especially if you are a parent implementing new techniques in your parenting style. I love this chart and wish I had it when I was a new mom.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you haven't had the pleasure of listening to Eckhart Tolle or reading his work after watching this video we are sure you'll become a fan! We encourage you to search him out more.


Family & Parenting

by Eva Goulette

One of the major ways Dancing Jaguar's Spirit Camp differs from other camps is its focus. This program teaches children to focus inward and to learn how to navigate their inner landscape. When children are at school, they are nurturing their minds; when they play sports they are nurturing their bodies; and when they attend Spirit Camp, they are nurturing their spirit -- that wonderful essence that makes each child a unique, beautiful individual. Human beings are made up of mind, body, and spirit. How can we expect to have fully balanced, whole lives if we neglect and even refuse to acknowledge a third of who we are?


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Eva Goulette has written one of the best articles of the year so far. We can't believe these camps aren't popping up everywhere. This is more than an article, this is a movement. This kind of camp changes children's lives. Spirit camp among many other things teaches children how to navigate their inner landscape.



Family & Parenting


by Janet Lansbury

We don’t think twice about interrupting infants and toddlers, mostly because we don’t think to value what they are doing.  At the same time, we want our children to be learners and achievers. We want them to be able to listen patiently in the classroom and have the tenacity to solve difficult problems and pursue their dreams...


Editor's Note: Janet Lansbury always provides great information for parents about how they can be with their babies in a way that's respectful, caring, and compassionate. Her work with RIE helps families learn how to do less and observe more of what their babies are already doing...

Review by Stacy Toten and Carol Lawrence

A great example of how individual we all are. Kids can't help but follow their intuition no matter what gender, no matter what their passion is! Kids teased Raffi for a bit but then his true gift emerged and the kids stopped teasing him and embraced his passion.


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Made by Raffi is an intuitively written children's book about a boy who goes against the grain and follows his true passion. It's our job as parents to teach our children that its OK to be different and if they come across children who are different and unique, embrace their differences. Don't fear it.

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.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This video really hits home. We love this video!! Make sure to take time to unplug and give your children the gift of nature.



Family & Parenting

by Lori Petro, BSEd

Parenting is seeing a revitalization in America. Groundbreaking research in brain science has revealed new ways of relating to our children and provided insight into the most common behavioral issues...


Editor's Note: I appreciate the way this article uncovers some unconscious ways that parents continue enforcing old paradigms even while seeking to consciously parent. This article helps us to remember the big picture; bringing the old, unhelpful patterns to light, so that we can refocus on the love and connection we want to nurture with our children.


Family & Parenting


Editor's Note: Fun reminder of the joys of childhood and the wonder of engaging the imagination.



Family & Parenting


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: For those who don't want to limit their children's thinking process, this is an excellent video in case you've never even thought of looking at nature in this way. Simon Paul Harrison is a master at looking beyond the labels and teaching parents and children how to expand their mind thought through connecting with nature in so many different ways.

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.
