A great way to help your child through intense feelings

A really great way to help your child through intense feeings is with a trusty pen and paper! I would like to invite you to make use of pen and paper to help your child feel understood, release tough emotions and practice self-regulation.

Example with a child aged 2-4:

Child: “I forgot teddy at home, I want teddy.” ( child is clearly very upset)

Parent: ( gets a peice of paper and pen ) “Let’s write a letter to teddy and tell him how you feel right now and what you wish. Maybe you would like to tell him how much you miss him.”

Child: ( stops crying and thinks about what he wants to say) dictates: ” Dear Teddy, I miss you and I wish you were here. You are my favorite teddy.” Read more

Best of Blog: Fritz and The Phantom

aka: Get Off the Sideline. Get Into the Game!

I wasn’t expecting a flood of tears to come gushing down my face, but I found it difficult to dam it up for almost the entire first half of the performance.

Witnessing one apple of my eye, my oldest daughter, performing on stage with my youngest grandson in The Nutcracker was almost too much to take in one sitting. But indeed I took it with great nostalgia and pride as Cameron played Fritz, the spoiled and rascally son of the governess, played by Sara.
Rushing back were memories of delivering Sara to dance lessons, rehearsals, competitions, recitals, fundraising events and conventions, year after year, witnessing the progress as talent and geography expanded to include destinations like New York and Las Vegas.

Now, in this precious moment, a very similar road was being paved for and by Cameron, nine years old, with a dancing talent and passion even more profound than his mom. His large dance school, the one his mother attended, put a dance competition team together around the little guy three years ago. They dominate the competition in every city they compete in. And Sara couldn’t be more excited about the possibilities. Read more

5 Winning Strategies That Don’t Include Yelling or Nagging

We all know that we can’t parent the way we want to when we are in a bad place emotionally. Even the best and most effective strategies only work when you can bring yourself to the energy and mindset that is going to support you to succeed.

If YOU are on the verge of a meltdown, the biggest priority is to take care of you first so you can address what is going on with your child in a way that is not going to create an emotional mess that you and your child will have to clean up.

We want to minimize the emotional messes so you can enjoy life and feel good about your parenting. I know that you want to give your child the best you have not the leftovers of a bad day that just create the guilt that hurts you in so many ways. Read more

Helping your child navigate friendship

April 17, 2013 by admin  
Filed under Peaceful Parenting

Feeling like we belong to a “group” is something all human beings need in life, in one form or another. Feeling like a social outcast has powerfully negative outcomes and, believe it or not many are terrified of being socially rejected both consciously and unconsciously.

No one wants to be picked last or be the unpopular kid. Life can be very cruel to outcasts. Our desires and expectations for our children to have friends or how they should make friends can be colored by our own fears, feelings and needs around this issue. One of the best ways to understand your core beliefs around friendships is to really pay attention to how you react to the situations that your child experiences in life as he learns all about friendship.

It is important to realize that your child DOES NOT NEED to be friends with everyone just like you are not friends with everyone that you interact with. Forcing friendships leads to stress and often disaster. Children are required to learn the complex structure of friendships and sometimes it will be awesome and other times it will be heartbreaking.

Game plan for a responsible child

January 9, 2013 by admin  
Filed under Peaceful Parenting

As parents we all want to raise our children to be responsible. The bottom line is that this does not happen without some sort of “game plan”. Please consider this, when we try to force and exert power, we are not guiding a child to WANT to be responsible. This is key. Forcing causes resistence and resentment. Eventually, a child will comply so he does not get into trouble with you but he will not learn why it is important to care about being responsible and he may not grow to WANT to become responsible. How many adults have you come across in your lifetime that resent or reject responsibility?

Children will not get out of control without punishment, they get out of control when they don’t have appropriate guidance. There is a difference. With guidance you show and you embody what you are teaching. Can you bring attention to the ways and the reasons that you are responsible and communicate this to your child in a way that does not sound like lecturing? There are golden opportunities everywhere. How do you feel about responsibilty? What energy do you carry around that? Read more

Find Your Peace This Holiday: One Step at a Time

December 5, 2012 by admin  
Filed under Peaceful Parenting

It’s that time of the year when our hearts seem to connect to and long for the idea of peace more than ever. Ironically, it is also a time when we are so busy that we sometimes forget to breathe.

I know exactly how hard it is to take a few minutes; there is always something more important to do. We are so busy “doing” that we forget to nurture ourselves. We often fall prey to reactive behavior with our kids because we are frazzled and tired.

Putting things into perspective requires that you connect to your inner source of peace and centre your “doing” around that. No one, who is lying on their death bed ever thinks, ” I should have cleaned my house more”, or “I should have spent more time at the office”. We don’t need to wait until we run out of time in order to turn inward to our inner voice and listen to what our hearts are trying to tell us in any given situation. Read more

How your relationship affects your child

November 7, 2012 by admin  
Filed under Peaceful Parenting

Your relationship with your partner is the central hub from which your child’s experience of family flows. When you relationship is solid and there is communication, deep love, respect, openness co-operation and playfulness between you and your partner, even if your parenting skills are lacking your kids will be just fine. If you have the perfect parenting techniques down pact but your relationship with your partner is strained, inauthentic, non- communicative, judgmental, tempermental and where love is conditional, you will find that your children will not benefit as hoped from your skills and techniques. Why is that? Becasue this is a feeling universe and your children are feeling what is going on and are deeply affected by it. Words take a back seat here. Tools and techniques are overshadowed by the “theme” of your partnership. What kind of environment would it take for your child to thrive in? Environment includes energy. Your relationship is the foundation upon which your children stand - is it made of concrete or sand?

Here are some steps you can take to move out of conflict and into resolution: Read more

Best of Blog: Music: a Superior Tool for Brain Development

September 16, 2012 by admin  
Filed under Peace for Children

Whether you have high aspirations for your child in the area of music or not, learning and listening to music is highly advantageous for your child.

It is common for mothers of very young children to sing to them, in order to calm them at the end of the day, so that they go to sleep. Hymns and patriotic music are played in official occasions and conventions, to arouse patriotic feelings in people. Loud and fast music with strong tempo is played at parties, to motivate people to dance and “have fun”. “Romantic” type music is played in movies as accompaniment for romantic scenes.

Music has the power to change our mood and affect us in ways no other tool can. Read more

Mommy I’m Fat - what do you say?

July 4, 2012 by admin  
Filed under Peaceful Parenting

A concerned mom recently asked me, “What do I tell my child when she comes to me and says things like, Mommy, I am fat?” This is an issue that plagues alot of young girls and the scary part is that the girls are getting younger that are asking these questions.

Typically, a mom’s reaction to this is: “No honey you are not fat. Don’t be silly you are beautiful.” As much as you want to impress upon her how amazing she is and you want her to see how beautiful she is, through your eyes and your understanding, the above comment does very little to console your child.

More than anything your child wants you to hear her and help her get through what she is feeling - or at the very least, hear her and simply understand. “I feel fat”, usually has something else bubbling under the surface, like, “I feel sad, I feel left out, I feel angry, I feel lonely”. Read more

Unlocking Unconscious Patterns

May 17, 2012 by admin  
Filed under Peaceful Parenting

Have you ever caught yourself saying something  to your child and remarking to yourself, “That sounded exactly like my mom (my dad)”.  Sometimes this is followed by a chuckle because we are reflecting the comfort and nurturing that we have experienced from the way that we were parented, other times we are mortified because we’ve repeated a way of being that we swore as young adults, we would never adopt.

Right or wrong, good or bad is a lot less important than becoming aware of unconscious patterns. The more aware we become the easier it gets to make choices in the momentthat reflect who we want to be. Read more
