What We Cover
- How to get your kids to meditate.
- Tips on using essential oils instead of Tylenol or harsh cleaning products.
- How to create a life by design rather than by default.
Take a Listen >>
- When people complain to you about motherhood, that’s a great opportunity to take a mental note about that struggle so you can find a solution for when you get into that situation.
- You get to decide how to parent your kids. If you don’t want to play with them on the floor, you don’t have to. Your kids don’t have to be in extracurricular activities. It’s your choice- and nobody else’s.
- Rather than offering people alternative ways to parent, show them so they can see for themselves how it looks.
- Instead of saying, “I can never do something like that.” say “how can I…” and see where that question leads you.
- To figure out what type of parent you want to be, look at people whose parenting styles you love and do what they’re doing. Say no to things that don’t serve you.
How to Get Your Kids to Meditate
- Children are natural meditators because they are naturally mindful.
- Like anything, if you want your kids to meditate, you’ve got to set the example.
- Have them sit with you and ask the to focus on one thing. For example: ask them to envision a snowman. What does he taste like, feel like, look like, etc.
- You can also put a stuffy on their belly and have them do deep belly breathing. Ask them to focus on the stuffy going up and down with the breath.
- Start with one minute per the child’s age to sit mindfully.
- If the word “meditation” is triggering for you, call it “being in the moment,” or “quiet time.”
How to Overcome Conflict
Communication and a willingness to learn is the savior of her marriage and parenting.
