Something new to worry about: Passing along anxieties

When I let my son watch Finding Nemo, I always start it at the scene where Nemo is waking his dad up for the first day of school. I know that fairy tales and children's movies have a long history of removing mothers from stories because moms represent safety and security. But in the case of Finding Nemo, I think that the opening scenes are a little too traumatic. My son…

I just hung up from a conference call with two of my beloved colleagues, Sue DeCaro and Sheila Wenger.

Big Versus Small

She's at the bottom of the stairs screaming, again. She wants me to come back to carry her up the stairs. It's an ongoing battle. She will be 4 next month and while she is throwing her fit I think of how…

The Reasons Behind Toddler Meltdowns

We've all been there…doing anything you can to make your kiddo happy when they’re in a ‘mood’. In our house, we find all sorts of ridiculous things to distract our girl from what she’s really upset about…nothing. Yep, that’s the reason behind most meltdowns- nothing. Oh, and these meltdowns? The ‘tude goes from ‘happy go lucky’ to ‘here’s my evil twin’ in less than a couple seconds. FUN. You've seen this…

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…

April Parenting Tip: How to Handle Unpredictability

There are many words that can be used to describe motherhood but today, my pick is “unpredictable“.  What you think is a day planned one way can turn into a whole other day in the snap of a finger.  As a mom, you need to be able to quickly adjust and roll with the punches.  This of course is no easy feat but it can be done.…

Think back to your childhood and the time that you spent with your parents. (I'll give you a second.) What were the interactions you had with them like? Now that you have children do you find yourself using their ideas for fun holidays or improving on some of their rules that you didn't like?…

To the person at Target who is watching me and my screaming child with a look of horror on her face...  Yes, I know that my child is crying uncontrollably, and no, I do not plan to attend to her at this moment.  Does that make me a bad mother in your eyes?  Let me explain the bigger picture, and then I bet you'll understand.
