Archive for the ‘parenting’ Category

A few previous careers ago included teaching school pre-K-8, and I understand how the onset of August brings a combination of positive anticipation for the upcoming semester as well as disbelief that the summer is almost gone!

Sometimes thoughts about what to do differently and about goals for the children and myself came through the August summering…

My experience and training in the field of education along with more recent professional trainings including Living Values Education for Educators and Parents have included the importance of including the following concepts at home and in the classroom:

Peace, Love, Happiness, Respect, Cooperation, Honesty, Responsibility and Tolerance/Acceptance.

Words that motivate and inspire vs. labeling, categorizing or blaming, responding v. reacting always go further.  When your child does something unacceptable to someone else, try addressing the behavior not the child by asking these three questions about her (his) actions:

  • Was it kind?
  • Was it safe?
  • Was it respectful?

These three questions can begin the process of change and teaching — without categorizing or labeling. Proactive, mindful parenting begins with you! You’re the adult – even though at times we are triggered (by our children) to childish reactions.  I’m an educator, coach and anger management specialist as well as being trained with www.livingvalueseducation.org, www.livingvalues.net in the parenting realm.

SYNCHRONICITY-SERENDIPITY-SYNERGY are wonderfully timed scenarios-circumstances; it’s fabulous that the English language provides us with these feel-good words…
Lately, my career/collaborations as well as family events and relationships are feeling that way/all good! My current involvement with The R.E.D. Team: Recharge-Empower-Develop You and Your Family (for additional insight view http://www.balanceandpower.com/events.php) is a perfect example:  as I placed myself in different Long Island networking events, my intention being to meet powerful people to collaborate with :), I newly connected with my three wonderful R.E.D. Team colleagues..and subsequently learned that we are of the four Eastern/astrological signs: Earth, Wind, Fire, Water. In case you’re wondering, I’m the bull-Taurus-Earth gal.

As for family, we had a wonderful celebration of our daughter Jessica’s marriage to Mark Peachy of England in a wonderful Long Island venue.  They’re living  in London, near the soccer stadium where Arsenal team plays,  in a recently restored area in Islington.  There were lots of friend/family history at our celebration,  including Mom’s Brooklyn friends whom she hasn’t been able to see in many years- and  lived in our neighborhood when I was growing up..and my friend from public school -present at the party- who knows them as well..and my brother who “played over” at their homes.. Of course my daughter Ariel and her boyfriend Xabi residing in Madrid are highlights of this time as well!   You can read more about my former personal “empty-nested” experience and giving the children “roots and wings” in my new publication SOAR!™ with Resilience.
