Staying healthy and fit is a great choice for the whole family. An active lifestyle can help prevent diseases and keep the family happy. As a family, feed your spirit with body-positive things this year. Find what works for your family and stick to it. Here are some ideas to get you started.
1. Explore New Things
Family holidays are great, but it is important to learn new things as a family. When children learn new things, such as sports, it can become a new passion and part of their lifestyle. Your children will learn valuable life skills when paddling, playing tennis, or sailing. Visiting new places also embeds strong memories that kids will keep for years.

Out of all the parenting books, we have read and all of the book reviews we have written this one is at the top of our list of being a favorite.
Sez Kristiansen's exquisite choice of vocabulary she chooses to use and her explanations of her conscious awareness versus habit or predictability are on another playing field. It is of no surprise that she is an acclaimed poetess.
Sez goes through every emotion just like we do as parents, the highs and the lows. You feel like you are living it with her as she tells you of her experiences in a raw and honest way. You can laugh, cry, go crazy, and be filled with intensity and excitement. Her tenderness and passion are endless.

This is an opportune time to release, ground, and renew yourselves.
Here are our Intentional Conscious Parenting May Energetic Tips.
1) Ground by walking barefoot outside. This is called earthing. Take your shoes and socks off and feel the grass, dirt, or pavement below your feet. Take nature walks or short basks in the sun. Let mother earth recharge your energy. This is also a great time to release any unwanted energy down through your energy centers and out through your feet. See it going deep into the earth, letting it go to be dispersed.

We share ideas on how to raise children with intention, and of course, a big part of any conversation involving both intentional and conscious parenting is education. Private school education is often favored by parents. Here are five ways that private school can prepare your child for success in life. (Of course, it's important to support traditional schooling and homeschooling as well. Figure out whatever works best for your family.)

Supporting The Inner Light Of The Children,
Carol Lawrence And Stacy Toten
After losing a loved one, it’s natural to want to shield your children from pain. It gets complicated when it comes time to break the sad news, especially if they were close to that person. For example, it can be hard to tell young children about the death of their grandparent, considering their role in child development and their unique relationship. You, as the parent, still have the burden to help your kids cope with the loss even as you grieve. Below is a guideline on how to help your child cope with the loss:
Be Honest About Death
Breaking the news is one of the most challenging things in this process, but there will never be a perfect time to tell them. It would not be right if they learned about the loss unexpectedly from another source. Find a time and space where they will be free to express themselves however they need.
A public space is not the ideal place to do it. Be clear about death and make them understand that it’s a permanent happening. Avoid statements like ‘grandma went to sleep” or “grandpa is resting” as such words might ignite some hope that they might wake up someday.
Address Your Child’s Feelings

Moms, get organized with the Intentional Conscious Parenting 2022 Family Planner and Calendar.
The new baby has arrived and mom is settling in. She's thrilled, exhausted, and potentially overwhelmed. New parents often receive a variety of presents for their new little bundle of joy to welcome them into the world. In this article, we are going to focus on mom and fun gifts for her.
Here are some fun gifts ideas for the special new mom in your life.
1) Time - Sometimes getting a shower with a brand new little one can be difficult. This is where you come in. Offer an invitation to donate a few hours of your time. These few hours could give mom a chance to shower, clean up the house, cook a meal or wash some laundry while you watch the new baby. Or you could offer to take some of the regular household tasks off her hands while she rests with the baby.
