by Margaret Paul, PhD

In a phone session with Gerald, one of my clients, he expressed to me that he was feeling very sad about his son, Luc. Luc, 29 years old, was not doing much with his life, and Gerald was berating himself for how he had parented Luc...

 

Editor's Note: Great reminder that our children have their own path to discover and to allow them the space to do that rather than judge, criticize or take their accomplishments or lack thereof personally. 

 

Family & Parenting


by John D. Blomquist

Through a child’s eyes, many of the rights and freedoms some adults take for granted must seem quite constrained. Surely any three-year-old would be confounded by the “self-evident” truths of her unalienable rights to liberty and the pursuit of happiness enunciated in the Declaration of Independence; and given how some big people interact with her, she might feel even less entitled to any of the specific rights and freedoms set forth in the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United States...

 

 Editor's Note: Beautiful Child's Bill of Rights from dedicated father John D. Blomquist.

 

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?

 

Family & Parenting


"Quantum science tells us that the consciousness that makes up the “you” and “I” of the world is truly interconnected to all other things. We are not separate at all. We participate, consciously or unconsciously, in a universe that is constructed of a vast field of consciousness, of thought. That as participators in this universe we can, with our thoughts, feelings and beliefs, change our world. We can alter what we are participating in simply by thinking about it; whether we are in the location of the object of our thoughts or not. We participate, across time and space with our mind and the unseen energy our thoughts create."

Family & Parenting


by Dean Odysseus Yacalis

Today, my son, Phoenix,turns 16. And while the process of growing into a man, has been and continues to be ongoing and fluid, there is a certain undeniable resonance to this moment in the journey that deserves inspection, honoring...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Our friend Dean has written a heartfelt riveting truer than true article about raising his rainbow warrior son and the process of stepping back and letting his wings fly little by little as adult hood encroaches upon his son in two years.

Cross-posted from www.Care2.com 

In this time of smartphones and tablets and gaming systems, toys seem almost quaint. Why play with a real object when you could control a virtual one? Well, there’s something to be said for a plaything that makes you think or forces you to move more than a single finger...

 

Editor's Note: Great look into some toys that are fantastic for both young and old.

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 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.

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

Your parenting path is unique to you. But to parent from the heart in the way that we as parents want and need to, in the way that our children need, we need to feel confident, we need to do it our way when it’s not necessarily the norm within our family or community...


Editor's Note: Genevieve reminds us to look at the bigger picture rather than get stuck in the confines of our own perfectionism when it comes to parenting peacefully.

 

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 Carrie Contey, PhD

Babies are people. They are communicating all of the time and want to be seen and heard by their loved ones. Babies cannot manage their emotional experiences without the help of caregivers; they learn how to manage their emotions by feeling the feelings of the people caring for them...

 

Editor's Note: As caregivers, it is only natural for us to want to soothe and quieten a crying baby as quickly as possible. In this article, parenting expert, Carrie Contey, reminds us to first check in with ourselves before rushing in, so that we can better deal with the cause of baby's discomfort.

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.
