Preview: Parenting Begins Before Conception – Your Childhood wounds by Carista Luminare

“Parenting forms children’s core beliefs about themselves. Nothing could be more important. The future of the world depends on our children’s conception of themselves.

After all, there are many basic understandings about social life that we take in at that tender age, such as to share things, take time for a nap, be nice, and so on, which is about all I retain from the...

The Spiritual Principles of Parenting Part 5 The Ascendant Principle – Your Child’s Ethical Being by Dr. Connie Kaplan

This series of articles is predicated on the answer to three provocative questions: What if you had a document that described your child’s gift to the world? What if you could look at that document and know Who She Is? Would that change the choices you make in parenting this child? I think so. That document can be created through the system called the invisible garment. I teach an extraordinary spiritual viewpoint about human incarnation as described in my...

Why You Should Stop Saying ‘Do What You’re Told!’ by Sarah MacLaughlin, LSW

Do you want to be told what to do? I haven’t found a single person who likes it. Whether you’re 4 or 40, it’s generally not a favorite. I know you still need your kids to follow directions, I really do. But the old ways of getting kids to do what they’re told are rooted in fear and shame: demand, command, spank, yell, use time-out, take away privileges and impose other consequences. Despite many cultural shifts, we have not...

Nurturing and Nourishing our Children’s Souls by Gina Mazza

As we make an earnest personal commitment to run towards this great adventure called Life with a greater sense of self-awareness, doing so positively impacts everything in our midst—especially our rela­tionships. For me, a major earthly priority for becoming more aware is to be the best mother possible. As a mom, my imperative is to nurture and nourish these little souls who incarnate to learn and grow—and to suffer, because we cannot learn without this part of life. It’s...

Autism, Allergies and Gluten by Dr. Diana Fatayerji

Can eliminating certain foods from the diet improve autistic symptoms such as social withdrawal, repetitive behavior, communication difficulties, anxiety and hyperactivity? Most parents know that what they feed their children affects them in one way or another. Foods and chemicals do not just affect the digestive tract. They have a direct impact on our mood, brain and behavior. For example, caffeine can make us feel energized, while food dyes and food additives can cause hyperactivity, skin problems and asthma....

7 Steps to Teach Children to Manage Stress by Dr. Caron B. Goode

Traditionally, childhood is a time of carefree summers spent with best friends, trips to amusement parks and Saturday matinees at the movies. But for many children, it’s also a time of great stress. In fact, stress—those overwhelming feelings of doubt about ourselves or our ability to handle things—is as common in children as adults. The greatest challenge to parents today is teaching children to manage stress effectively. Children may react to excess stress with behavior that seems immature, inappropriate,...

Spoiling Children: The 7 Myths by Chick Moorman and Thomas Haller

Myth #1: You will spoil your baby if you handle her too much. You should let her cry sometimes. Reality: You cannot spoil a baby. Babies need to be touched, squeezed, coddled, and held. Babies cry because they are hungry, sick, wet, messy, or desire attention. Pick up your baby and hold her. Do it as often as you like. Myth #2: Kids should not grow up believing they can have anything they want. Reality: It is desirable and...

Empowering Our Girls in Their Coming of Age by Brenna Smith

They told their Truths about their own journeys, what it looked like through the lenses of their own careers, from the corner offices to creativity and motherhood. Talk about a...
