Family & Parenting


by Sherri Carter, MS,
Family & Parenting C0-Editor

Imagine how freeing it would be to clean out the emotional and mental dust bunnies, releasing thoughts and behaviors which only serve to clutter and distract. The deeper you clear, the more space you create to fill with what you love. Here are some strategies to help you commit to a spiritual spring cleaning...


A Note from Sherri Carter, Family & Parenting Editor: Spiritual Spring Cleaning is your opportunity to shine your light into the darkness, clearing out what is holding you back so your light can shine brighter in all you do!

It’s spring-cleaning time!  Hooray!  Out with the old and in with the new.  Flowers are blooming, trees are budding and leafing out, and my husband and I are taking a good hard look at our finances.  Ouch...

 

Editor's Note from Shelly Phillips: It's spring cleaning time! You're organizing your house, planting your garden, but did you forget to get your finances in order?

 

Family & Parenting


by Margaret Paul, PhD

Do your children see you as happy and peaceful, or do they see you as angry, depressed or overburdened? Learn how important it is to good parenting for you to learn to take emotional responsibility for your own feelings...

 

Editor's Note: In this article, Margaret Paul, discusses a form of giving feedback to our children that is more valuable and effective than traditional praise. There is alot of information on 'avoiding praise' nowadays, and this approach gives parents something helpful that they can do instead, to empower children and preserve their excitement about learning.

 

Family & Parenting


by Genevieve Simperingham

When children are upset and unsettled, they need empathy and connection before solutions or suggestions.  They need to get their feelings out and to see that we’re noticing and caring about those feelings...

 

Editor's Note: Sometimes it's the hardest thing to do but keeping calm and composed while our children are grumpy is a challenge. We have all been there and felt that moment of frustration and annoyance but Genevieve reminds us to approach these situations with love and calmness and stay focused on peaceful parenting rather than react with anything but sweetness.

 

Family & Parenting


by Sudha Umashanker

Caesar was our family’s first pup. A friend brought him to us in a tiny carton. Black for the most part with a few patches of cream on his legs...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In the second story from Indian journalist and storyteller Sudha Umashanker, we read a bittersweet tale of a precocious pup named Caesar, a much loved family pet. Sharing stories not only honours our beloved friends, it is a crucial part of healing the heart.

 

Family & Parenting


by Rebecca Eanes

My firstborn is a highly sensitive child. I didn’t realize this fact until he was three, and I didn’t fully understand it until he was four and a half when I read Ted Zeff’s book, The Strong, Sensitive Boy. Without the knowledge and understanding of my son’s sensitivity, I disciplined him in ways that damaged his self-esteem and our bond. 

 

 

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: For those of you who have never heard of HSC, which stands for highly sensitive child this is a very informative article. Have you noticed a difference between your children and how they react to the way you discipline them? Do they take it very personal and carry it with them? Are they overly emotional? Please read this article. You will learn different techniques that set boundaries but don't harm your child inside and out.

 

 

Family & Parenting


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.
