9 Tips For Enhancing the Educational Experience of Your Child

Tips for Enhancing the Educational Experience of Your Child 

    • Ask your child to identify three goals for the school year (Academic, Health, Financial).
    • Sign up for a long term volunteer opportunity in their area of interest.
    • Make sure your child’s learning happens outside of the school walls as well as inside (libraries, museums, clubs, etc.).
    • If they have expressed interest in a particular career or field, provide them with exposure to the career or field as a reminder of the bigger picture and provide a mentor/support individual from the field.  Sometimes this also serves as a “reality check” in terms of career requirements and commitment.
    • Take advantage of free academically supportive websites such as Khan Academy, The College Board

Parenting Coming Out Of The Dark Ages?

We found this video so pleasing, especially since we reviewed Dr. Shefali's book The Conscious Parent in 2010 and hosted a live chat with her in March 2011. It's so magical to us that conscious parenting is finally taking center stage. Like we've said before we've raised our children this way starting 30 years ago. Since Dr. Shefali appeared with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday it is now getting the recognition that we feel is needed for our children, parents and society. 

We resonate with the words Sabrina Brightstar talks about in this video. She's right, we are all responsible for the children. Our beliefs, thoughts, ability to love ourselves and evolve does have an impact on today's children. We hope all you parents will take a look at this video. It is time to change the world by changing how we parent.

Review: Dr. Mercola's Sunscreen and After Sun Moisturizing Cream

When we were approached by Dr. Mercola to write a review about his sunscreen we were delighted. We are avid followers of Dr. Mercola and we respect his work, especially his viewpoint on nutrition and health. If you've never heard of him we recommend looking him up! 

"I believe that proper nutrition, not medicine, is the key to good health." ~ Dr. Mercola

How does one help their children succeed in life? Guest Article By Kathleen Boucher

Congratulations to Kathleen Boucher. She recently was awarded the 2014 Book Of The Year award for her book A Simple Idea To Empower Kids: Teen's Edition and 2014 Preferred Choice Award (Kids Category) for A Simple Idea To Empower Kids: based on the power of love, choice and belief.

How does one help their children succeed in life? By teaching them to have a strong work ethic.

Wouldn’t it be great if each child born on earth came with their own unique instruction manual? How valuable would that be? And yet for all the books written to help parents, I have not found any that discuss work ethic. But hold on. I can hear you saying,” Wait a minute we are doing the best job that we can. We raise our children to believe in themselves, to take care of their bodies and their minds. We teach them to value their family, their friends and their community. We teach them to understand that to live in a country that is free is a gift not to be taken lightly.
