The Importance of Kindness to Yourself

According to our school calendar, we are solidly over the half-way mark for summer and this week, I started to feel the effects of trying to work from home while my kids are all basically home (with the exception of a few camps). I was mindful not to place too many expectations and items on my work To…

A Screen Time Battle With a Good Outcome

We were leaving for church last Sunday, and my 8 year old was playing on his iPod. This is not an unusual occurrence and my son is usually the first one ready each day when we need to leave so it is rarely an issue. But as is usual in the summer, our routine has gotten a bit lax, and he has had a…

Connection Advice for Parents Who Travel

This week is a busy week for me. My kids finish school tomorrow. The next day – Wednesday – is the first official day of summer break for them and then I leave for a work conference on Thursday. My younger two kids do not particularly love when I travel for work, so last year around this time when I left for…

Baltimore: Where Do We Go From Here?

I have intentionally avoided commenting on the riots that have sprung up around the country in recent times but today, I find it impossible to be quiet, as the events are unfolding in my beloved hometown of Baltimore and my heart is aching. I have friends and family who are firefighters and police officers who…

Does Parenting Have To Be So Hard?

I just hung up from a conference call with two of my beloved colleagues, Sue DeCaro and Sheila Wenger. We discussed the power of conscious parenting and the positive effects it is having on the parents with whom we work. We are hearing a common theme from parents – they are stressed, overworked, and have…

The Transformational Power of Conscious Parenting

I met again this week with the dad I have been working with on Conscious Parenting. In just a few short weeks, he has evolved from feeling disrespected, frustrated, disempowered, disconnected and unhappy in his relationships with his children. Things have been improving rapidly for him, though. This week, he surprised his boys by taking them to the Phillies game. They had a great time. This man's joy was palpable when he was telling me the story. Awakening and becoming a more conscious…

How This Spring Break was Better Than the Rest

Today marked the first day back to school after my kids' spring break. They were off for a total of eleven days. Yes, you read that right - eleven days. It was such a long stretch of time that by the time they got back to school this morning, it was almost like the first day back after…

On Being a Role Model to My Daughter

One night recently, I spoke at a PTO meeting about conscious parenting. When I arrived home, my daughter Faith (who is one of my biggest cheerleaders) inquired how it went. I explained that the PTO members were really excited about the plan and want me to come back to launch it in a few weeks.…

Connection, Kindness and....Cinderella?

Millennials and the Holiday Spirit

 

Although it may be the holiday season, as far as presents go that doesn't mean a whole lot to Millennials. Like so many other issues, they have their own ideas about gift giving. Apparently what they want is cash, mostly to pay down college costs and other debt.

So much for the negative stereotype that those born between 1980 and 2000 are lazy and have a sense of entitlement. Millennials are laboring under a collective $1 trillion in debt from student loans and still…

Love is More Than a Four Letter Word

Rosemary Lichtman, Ph.D. and Phyllis Goldberg, Ph.D.



Long before it was a song, the saying was a part of our conversation - and it's especially appropriate during February, the month of love:



Love makes the world go 'round.



With all this whirling, love can make you feel off balance and dizzy. Sometimes it's tricky to keep your personal world turning without having it spin totally out of control. Although our focus is most often on romantic love,…

Alone vs Lonely (Part II)

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.



These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…

It was Crazy in the Making

The most painful thing of my life is how I failed to make sure that my two oldest children felt truly loved. Sure, it’s easy to be so darn critical after the fact. And yes, I can say with absolute conviction that I did my best to love them. But in reality, it’s hard to rationalize the past when you still see and feel childhood pain seeping out of your adult children today. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not berating myself. Nor am I taking full responsibility for all of their hurts. I am simply… Continue

Caffeinate Me!

"Medium mochajava, half-caf, soy, sugar-free, no foam, no whip, 115degree, latte - double-cupped and sleeved."



"Large caramel, skim, decaf, iced, upside down macchiato."



" Small drip. "



Isn't it amazing that there is a whole culture and language associated with coffee? This coffee culture looks and sounds something like this:



Inhabitants enter their caffeine habitat and form a long row, each facing the back of the next. They stand in silence,… Continue
