So, loosen up your clicking fingers and please share your comment love to my warmest link hugs this week’s Special Edition: Some of my all-time favorites
Paula’s Archives of homeschool ideas and activities has a wealth of wonderful resources no matter where your kids are schooling. My favorite is this list of ideas for preschooler and toddler activities. I challenge you not to find at least five things that your child will find engaging (and give you a break, too)
A Magical Childhood has a lot of great resources, but this one, What should a 4 year old know? Speaks to me every time. I refer to it often when I get the urge to push my kids to do or learn, when what they’ll get the most benefit from is to BE.
If you’ve ever looked at your parenting as a spiritual journey, then this short article, Swammie Mommie by Judith Hansen Lasater (one of my Gurus) will speak to you, no matter your faith or practice, our lives are one of growth or stagnation.
Mothering.com has this article A Cry for Connection which explains a different view about tantrums than the one typically spoken about. I refer anyone having issues with tantrums to this article (along with anything else on their site.) It changes your perspective about their purpose and not projecting your own emotions onto them.
This is a quick overview of the Yamas and Niyamas from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. These are the core principles by which I live my life and a place from which I find endless knowledge. They work with any religion or practice and you can take what speaks to you.
