“In my efforts to be a better parent, I discovered that I was not alone. All parents ‘lose it’ at times and we can learn to be centered more often. But I also discovered that children want to express their best selves—to develop their highest potential–and they depend on us to help them. We’re actually on the same side. And that makes all the difference” says Dr. Ilene Val-Essen, author of Bring Out the Best in Your Child and Your Self: Creating a Family Based on Mutual Respect (February 2010).

Tomorrow is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and the kids are staying home from school. They’ve already had two weekend days of t.v., computer and Wii or Xbox. Maybe a couple of outings, but it was yucky weather. I know we stayed inside except for a run to the grocery store and a few other errands. I have to work tomorrow and don’t want my kids glued to a screen all day. So I started poking around for some fun crafts to do with what I have at home. Kaboose always has great ideas. I loved these two videos, one using paper plates and the other using a cereal box. Have fun with your kids today!
If you are tired of the temper tantrums, the whining, the shouting and the general mayhem in your house, you need to take this class. You will learn WHY kids have temper tantrums and how you can avoid them in the future. Learn why TIME OUT is not the best discipline and learn a new way to work with your kids that does not cause disconnection and punishment but will create a close, loving relationship with your children.
Gone are the days when we parented on automatic pilot, blindly trusting what we learned at our parents’ knees. The world today is a complex and confusing place; and for the first time in history, the support of close community and extended family just aren’t as influential as your child’s peers… or the social expectations with which they are constantly being bombarded.
Over the last few weeks I have read numerous articles and blog posts about how to create and stick to our New Year’s resolutions. But here it is Jan. 13 (my 45th birthday by the way) and those articles have stopped. It’s only the 2nd week of January but how many of you have already gotten off track, changed track or forgot you even set new goals for 2010. Or didn’t even bother to do any planning for 2010?
