Family & Parenting


by Margaret Paul, PhD

Most parents want their children to be healthy, yet have no idea what kind of nutrition creates optimal health. This article can put you on the right track in understanding how to support your children's health...

 

Editor's Note: Great article and timely as everyone in my family has suffered through every nasty bug that has come along this year. Reevaluating our diet may be the first place for us to start.

 

Family & Parenting


by Kathleen Boucher

If I were to do a survey about what parents want for their children the top two answers would be “I want them to be happy and I want them to be successful...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Kathleen's been around children for 35 years as a registered nurse. She's hoping to enlighten many parents on the conscious parenting path on how they can empower their children with confidence and self-esteem. We really like how she asks the parents if they are having their child try something new because it's something they desire? Or is it because the parent desires it?

They say a pictures worth a thousand words, well I may just have to agree with that...Kids are just so darn curious about everything, the world, bugs, people, stores, animals, bed time books, etc...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Curiosity is a natural instinct for all of our children. Here is Stacy's granddaughter, with her magnifying glass and her globe, she was ready to explore the world.

 

Family & Parenting


by Loren Buckner, LCSW

Many adults want to deny the significance of what happened to them when they were young and vulnerable. Others believe that they should "just get over" any problems they had as they were growing up. The truth is childhood is an important part of who we all are...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We have really enjoyed working with Loren Buckner. She has a tremendous amount of parenting wisdom to teach about the emotional challenges of family life and how to deal with them. Upon reviewing her book and interviewing her we feel Loren is a great resource for the All Things Healing family and parenting community.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We found one of the best parenting tips from Dr. Shefali on Oprah's Life class. There was no way we could not share this with you. Please take two minutes and listen to this. Maybe even listen twice and let it really sink in. This a vital conscious parenting tip. Enjoy the video and enjoy raising your kids!

Editor's Note: Hilarious! This video will have you laughing out loud! I love these so much and can relate to the cookie episode!

 

Family & Parenting


by Andy Smithson

When I got to college it was amazing how many of my roommates didn’t know how to do laundry or cook something other than ramen noodles...

 

Editor's Note: Great list to use in preparing our children for adulthood. I found each one to be a great conversation starter with my teenager. What speaks to you most in these top 10?

 

Family & Parenting


 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We stumbled upon this very funny and cool video about trees and plants being able to hear, smell and feel. We have done a lot of reading on this subject the past 30 years and loved the quick information this short 2.52 video provides the public. We are full believers!

 

Family & Parenting


by Linda McGurk

Gnomes were traditionally believed to be supernatural creatures that took care of the animals on people’s farms and on Christmas people would reward them for their work by putting out a bowl of rice pudding. It was important to stay on good terms with the gnomes, since otherwise they could get irritated and subject you to various pranks...

 

Editor's Note: This gnome home inspired me so much. After the holidays this would be a great project to do with your kids before they go back to school. Get outside, build something fun and enchanting like this gnome home and enjoy the day!

 

Family & Parenting


by Dr. Laura Markham PhD

How much TV should your Toddler or Preschooler watch?  Are you ready?  None.  Really.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that children under age 2 not watch any TV and that kids over age 2 be limited to an hour or at most two, daily, of quality programming...

 

Editor's Note: Shocking information regarding television and our children. While most of us have heard aspects of this before this article from Dr. Laura Markham shows us exactly how tv can affect our children. She also provides great alternatives to consider doing instead of electronic entertainment.

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.
