My 11 year old daughter and I decided to publish our personal letters to one another after discussing their potential benefit to readers...
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Alaxandra Folz takes us on a seven year journey with her daughters food allergies/sensistivities. They finally reached the end goal when her daughter turned 11 years old and they finally got their answers they had been searching for. Grab a kleenex, the dialogue that follows between this mom and daughters letters to each other is profound!
"Your three year old self knew. You knew it was hard to focus, sit still and follow directions. Something inside drove you ten steps ahead and told you to leap outta bounds." ~ Alexandra Folz.

I came to China with the intention of learning Tai Chi as well as the more internal alchemical principles of Chi Kung. I've ended up sometimes feeling I'm on a wild goose chase, yet it's mostly been both exhilarating and rewarding...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: Coming to China was taking a different path. The road diverted and at the fork, I took the “road less travelled.” Instead of suppressing my dreams, I stepped forward right into them. What is it inside a person that inspires him/her to take a different path?
My journey in China continues with a study of Tai Chi at China Wudang Kungfu Academy at the foot of the famous Wudangshan mountains, source of Taoism.

I write this from Yangshuo, China where I am currently based studying Tai Chi and Internal Kungfu. My next journey is to the Wudangshan mountains in Hubei province. This is something I dreamed of before...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: This year I travelled to China to learn more about energy and internal alchemy and to experience a different world. I had an amazing journey starting in Yangshuo and ending at the summit of the famous Wudangshan mountains. Was this living my "impossible dream" and how many other impossible dreams are people prevented from living due to a variety of factors like self-doubt and negative conditioning? I challenge all readers to begin to live some of their own "impossible dreams."

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: While many of the articles here focus on what we can do while our children are young, I appreciate that this article includes perspective for parents of adult children. And it is a great reminder for all of us that releasing control and being a good role model of self-care are essential for ourselves and our children!
