 Article Title :: Talk to Teenagers Without the Three C's
 
Do you want a more satisfying relationship with your teenage children? Do you want to reduce conflict and pique their interest in your words of wisdom? Start by being a skillful listener. When teenagers talk, listen without the three C’s; cutting them off, criticizing, and commanding. The three C’s close down communication, and put your teenager at risk of tuning out your valuable adult perspective.Listening without the three C’s is a lot harder than it seems. Suppose your teenager says, “A police officer came to school today and wasted our time talking about an anti-drug program.” A typical parent response, using the three C’s, sounds like this:Cutting them off  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Adoption: Tips for Dealing with Secrets
 
Secrets…we all have them. Adoptive families have too many, it seems. I’m tired of keeping secrets. They’re too much work. They clutter up the relationship section of my soul. Who knows what pieces; how much do they know?I was an adopted child of the 1950s—a dark time for adoption. Social workers instructed adoptive parents not to discuss adoption. I was raised on ‘secrets,’ which made it hard to feel real and ‘a part of.’ Today, things are different. Aren’t they?A secret for one family is dinner table discussion for another; much of how you communicate is learned from your family of origin. No one starts off parenting with a plan to deceive a child. Familie  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Resilience, A Woman's Act Of Coming Back To Center
 
Resilience is a great concept. As mothers, we must master this art. Resilience is the ability to recover quickly from illness, change, or misfortune. Resilience is buoyancy. Think of all the things this covers. A few examples might be our families get sick, we mend them back to health, our spouses have a hard day at work and is grouchy with us, or we have another curve ball thrown at us from work or life in general. It, also, means the properties of a material, which enable it to resume its original shape or position after being pulled, stretched, creased or compressed.How many times a day do we feel, pulled, stretched, or compressed in some way, either emotionally, physically, me  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Fathers of Toddlers - 5 Lessons This Dad Has Learned From His 3 Year Old Daughter
 
If you pay attention, you can learn a lot from watching and listening to your children. Sometimes they remind you of lessons you learned as a child. Sometimes they will amaze you by teaching you something brand new. Often they will make you smile. Here are just a few of the lessons I have learned.1. Life does not always work as you expect.My daughter has watched movies on DVD since almost the day she was born. When she is watching a program on PBS it seems just like the ones she has on DVD. But when it is over she doesn't understand why she can't watch it again. From her point of view, T.V. on demand is exactly how the world is supposed to work. This lesson hit home for me   (read full article)

 Article Title :: What is an Au Pair?
 
* A common question asked by many parents looking for child care alternatives is, "What is an au pair?". To answer this question let's look at the actual definition of 'au pair'. It is pronounced “o pair” in French, and means "on par" or equal, denoting living on an equal basis in a reciprocal, caring relationship between the host family and the young person. Like an older sibling, the au pair is included in all family activities, unlike an "employee" of a nanny agency who might be excluded from family meals, holiday celebrations, and other activities. In Europe today, tens of thousands of families and au pairs continue this practical and mutually valuable tradition and the custom is   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Parenting Teenagers: Parents Causing Teens Pain
 
Have you heard the expression: “A parent is only as happy as her unhappiest child?” That sentiment has rung true for parents many times, as unfortunate as that is. A child suffering from a failed attempt at something he cared about, a social rebuff that caused hurt feelings, facing a challenge that generated fear of failure…yes, parents feel their children’s pain many times, and very intensely.But sometimes a parent’s identification with his/her child is over the top. Sometimes parents become overly involved in their kids’ fights and feel the need to rescue them. Parents need to become aware that in this process we can inadvertently increase our child’s stress and pai  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Kids Can Clean House, Too!
 
Even the youngest members of the family can help out around the houseThere’s a pattern in American households that’s been emerging and it’s harmful for kids. Kids have essentially gone from being contributors to the household, to being waited on hand and foot. Too many moms see household duties as being outside the realm of their child’s responsibilities – and their ability. It’s not only sad, it’s also untrue.In fact, if kids are fully capable of contributing to the mess of a house, why can’t they be expected to contribute to its cleaning? The problem rests with moms. As mothers we often look at housework as the old saw “if you want it done right, y  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Stop 'Shoulding' on Yourself: Parenting Without Resentment
 
Parenting extroverted children sure can be exhausting for an introvert. Constant noise, questions, chatter. No room in my head to hear myself think. Actually, now that my kids are finally in bed, and I CAN hear myself think, I realize that I’ve been having problems setting boundaries lately.When I have a project to complete or an email to write or a phone call to make, I haven’t been remembering to just say so and declare a certain amount of uninterrupted time for myself. Instead, I try to write with one hand and help with homework with the other. And all I get is tired. It didn’t occur to me before tonight how exhausting it is to fragment my attention.Or maybe i  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Devotion: One Mother's Perspective
 
As I gently wake in the morning to the sun’s first subtle peek through my dark bamboo shades, I turn onto my left side and a smile quickly overtakes the corners of my mouth. My senses are filled with my precious child, peacefully slumbering, and perhaps dreaming of a day filled with new discoveries and adventures. Moments such as these offer me a sense of contentment that all is perfect in the moment.If only I had known that my heart would be captured by this amazing being that I brought into the world only three short years ago. If only I had known the passionate feelings that this tiny soul would inspire in me, welling up in my heart and permeating every inch of me.  (read full article)
