Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Listen in, as a father asks Abraham Hicks about his child's frustration when she's not able to manifest right away.



Family & Parenting

by Renee Jain MA

I wanted to sleep with a bat under my pillow. It was plastic; nonetheless, it was a weapon. I was 5 years old, and I firmly believed that each night when I went to sleep, a robber would break into the house. I needed something to defend myself (and maybe my family), and my brother’s yellow Wiffle ball bat seemed ideal. Unfortunately, my parents never complied with my request. They didn’t know what to do about a child dealing with anxiety.



Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: For building on a child self-esteem this article is one of the best we have came across in a few years. The writing is excellent and the wisdom is right on!

Weary children sleep late
school awaits
predictable moments
no longer apply....


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Our friend Alexandra has a way with words. Besides the fact she's an author of Indigo's Bracelet, she has put together a poem of wild words, bizarre pyramid building that has fun dripping off every word. We were laughing and falling off our seats when we read her poem "Mediation on Spilled Milk". We love how she takes an every day event that could have been turned into a negative action and turned it into a learning moment and she allowed the artist in her to turn it into a positive event.


Family & Parenting

by Sylvia Poareo, MSW

We see it often in parenting literature: in order to be as patient, kind, loving as we want to be as parents, we need to fill our cup.

This series of articles is intended to help parents explore self-care and recognize the pitfalls faced in implementing it...


Editor's Note: Fantastic reminder on what to do when we are feeling depleted. Sylvia Poareo gives some great ideas on how to be aware of what we need as parents to reconnect and recharge.


Family & Parenting

by Mark Brady, PhD

I was never a very good student in any of the schools I attended. I was kicked out of Katherine Brennan Elementary School – which currently ranks 534th out of 543 Connecticut elementary schools (because of kids like me?). But I wasn’t suspended for tromping Element No. 4 from the Periodic Table of Swearing in 20-foot high letters onto the pure white snow covering the hill behind the school...


Editor's Note: A reminder from Dr. Brady that we all have specific talents and gifts and we as parents (and educators), should honor that in our children by allowing them the freedom to explore their interests.


Family & Parenting

by Shelly Birger Phillips, MA,

I’m not an advocate of random consequences, spanking, punishments, or even time-outs but that might leave you wondering, “How can I set clear boundaries with my child in a way that’s kind and respectful, but also maintains some order and keeps us all safe and happy?” My answer is easy to understand and challenging to implement...


Editor's Note: Lately my clients have been asking me for real life examples of how to handle discipline lovingly and non-punitively. This article is my answer! Please leave me a comment, I'd love to know if gentle discipline is working well for you.


Family & Parenting

by H. F. Parkhurst

After many years and being a grandfather, I’m learning to consider children as young people. They’re bright and shiny pennies filled with the wonder of discovering the world. They rush this way and that as though they’re on wheels and are filled with a never-ending supply of questions...


Editor's Note: The topic of how we talk with children is near and dear to my heart and this article is right on. We need to start relating to children as the capable, helpful, smart, and inspiring young people they truly are. In fact, there are times when we need a child's fresh eyes to be able to see new solutions to the challenges we face. This article eloquently shares how and why we all need to take another look at how we communicate with young people.
