    3D101Ways101 Ways to Get Your Kids to Help at Home By Judy H. Wright “A positive identity hinges on positive life experiences.” – Judy H. Wright If those positive experiences can take place in the relative safety and security of the home then so much the better. The more successes a child has, the better he feels about himself and his place in the world. When we teach our children to work, the whole family comes out a winner. The child feels greater self-esteem, independence and sense of belonging. The parents feel relieved of some of the workload, less manipulated and more successful is seeing their child develop life skills. “I get to unload the silverware now, but when I am 4 years old, and then I get to feed the dog. You have to be pretty responsible when you feed the dog, because they can’t just get cereal if they are hungry.” - Ridge, age 3 Are you children responsible for chores? Do they have to be reminded again and again to take the garbage out? Do you have to reprimand them when they forget?  Are they resourceful in solving problems? Do they really know how to clean the living room or are they just rearranging the dust? Are your expectations reasonable? How about recruiting other family members to keep the house and life running smoothly? Does your family rotate chores so every one has an opportunity to learn life skills? What is the difference between a reward and a bribe? Wow! There “R” a lot of questions and what you really want is answers or solutions? Right? The most important R is Relationships and the good feelings that come to a family when everyone contributes in the sweat and the sweet. Contrary to what the kids may think, this is really about teaching life skills and team work. Those children who help at home ...

    BabyAnimals-smWant To Raise a Smart & Kind Child? Imagine your child entering kindergarten, junior high, and college and then finding a dream job.  One that is perfect fit for their talents, skills and interests.  As a caring adult, wouldn’t you feel happy for them?  Wouldn’t it make you happy to find out that by spending time connecting while they were young will make it easier for them in the world of work. One of the best ways to increase the chances of your child’s success in school and life is to help them develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Help them to learn to read and gain a vocabulary of words. What words mean; how to use them in sentences and how to read them on a page or ipad.  There is a direct correlation between vocabulary and success in school. Connection and Conversations Perhaps the purest joy in relationships is in the privilege of sharing. Precious hours that caring adults and children spend in each other’s company are remembered longest with the greatest delight.  The mutual joy of sharing time together in conversation and connection will form a chain of experiences which give a child a deep sense of security.  It will affirm the love and acceptance for their presence. Read, Sing and Talk As a Ready to Learn Instructor for PBS some years ago it was a honor to teach caring adults to read, sing and talk to their babies at least 20 minutes a day face to face.  That seems like so little time in a day when toddlers interrupt every four minutes, but it is hard for some parents, to really concentrate and connect physically and spiritually with the child.  DO IT ANYWAY. Children Learn What They Live Dorothy Law Nolte’s poem “Children Learn What They Live” tells us how children develop values of ...

When you are confident about your skills and talents, others will trust you more readily. “I am amazed how much my focus shifted after doing the goal exercise.

Do you find yourself denying the inevitable or wondering how you will ever be able to handle the loss when they are gone? “I Lost My Best Friend Today is a wonderful collection of personal stories, information, and quotations about the heartfelt subject of how deeply pets, and their passing, affect our lives.  It touches a subject, which until recently, was not in mainstream consciousness.   This wonderful book deals with the many and varied emotional aspects of the death and grieving process of our family pets. If you have loved and lost a pet, this book will aid you in your healing process.  If you know someone who has loved and lost a pet, this book will help you to understand what he or she may be going through emotionally and mentally.” - Patricia Skergan, D.C., Wholistic Chiropractic Is your child struggling to understand the death of their pet?

According to a study done and my own experience, the three things most dying people regret are: They wish they would have risked more. My mother said she chose the known and the unknown would have been fine.How many people are intimidated by the artichoke and miss the delectable pleasure because they were too afraid to ask how to cook and eat them? They wish they would have reflected more. Just stopped along the way to think “Is this the kind of person I want to be? Is this really what I want to do with my life? What would make me happier?” They wish they would have contributed more. One man told me that he wished he would have shared his wisdom with his sons. Another said she wished they would have had ...
