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…Continue

I met again this week with the dad I have been working with on Conscious Parenting.

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…Continue

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.…

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.

A lot of people that see me out with my daughter comment on how full and shiny her hair is, especially at her age. Now, although it is true that genetics plays a role in your child’s hair type, rate of growth etc., for your child’s best hair to show through, it simply boils down to their diet (garbage in –> garbage out). Your child’s hair reflects their overall health, so feeding them junk food, sugary drinks and carbonated beverages will make their hair brittle and dry. So, before you go…Continue
