Emily the Elephant had been wiggly from the time she was born. She loved to wave her trunk in all sorts of ways…flowing motions, jerky motions, whatever way she felt in the moment.

For as the images below illustrate, how your child breathes dictates how it’s jaw, teeth, chin, cheekbones, and even its lips...

Why End of the Year School Awards May Not Be a Good Thing By Mariaemma Willis, M.S.

The last day of school often celebrates the many accomplishments that have been achieved throughout the year with class parties and awards ceremonies. How many of you remember receiving awards and what that felt like? How many of you never once received a school award…what did that feel like?

Even though we might get annoyed, we still love them absolutely. However, children don’t always feel our love because ‘love’ is a difficult concept for children and even teens to grasp. In a way, children see love as connection —...

What Your Children Can Teach You – If You Let Them Part 1 By Dr Allan Hunter

Some years ago there was a book that everyone seemed to be giving everyone else at around Christmas, called “All I Ever Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” and its down-home wisdom and whimsical style charmed many. 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: Pt 2 The Soul – A Unified Field of Consciousness by Dr. Connie Kaplan

In the first article in this series, subtitled Participation Trophies for Parents, I asked a fairly provocative question: 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. I then went on to explain that I teach a unique spiritual cosmology, which is described in my book, The...
