Teaching children to manage boredom will serve as life skill

By Claire Moscrop, Nutrition Consultant When the weather is colder we tend to drink less water. We just don’t think about hydration as much as in the summer and it’s not so appealing to have a large glass of cold water when the temperature is dipping into the 30’s. Many of the body composition assessments […]

Parenting Simply: Starting the Conversation

Parenting Simply: Starting the Conversation

[ 0 ] October 18, 2012 |

I’ve been thinking a lot about new beginnings lately. Maybe it’s all of the change that Fall brings, or the way the cooler, darker weather invites introspection, but I’ve been thinking about what families need in order to have a fresh start.

Whenever I bring together a new Simplicity Parenting Group as I did recently at Meadowbrook Waldorf School, the first conversation we have is always about Values. I ask the group to fast forward ten or twenty years and picture their children grown. You can try this, too…

Come Get Right In Your Mind, Body, & Spirit at My Mini-Retreat for Moms on Friday, September 28th from 9 am – 4:30 pm

Kate Hanley is a mind-body coach, a yoga teacher, and author of The Anywhere, Anytime Chill Guide. She’s also the mom of two young kids, and thus knows every excuse in the book to avoid doing the things that keep you happy, healthy, and sane. She and her family live on the East Side.

“Pre-kids, I practiced yoga for nearly 15 years, attending a couple classes weekly and completing an intensive, year-long yoga teacher training at OM yoga in New York City. When I had my daughter, I managed to transition to a pretty regular home practice and made it to class most Sunday afternoons. But after my son followed, I really got thrown for a loop. Convinced that I couldn’t do one extra thing that didn’t involve keeping the kids alive, clothed, fed, rested, and provided for, I quit all forms of mind-body practice cold turkey. And that’s when things really went off the rails.”

“I know how slim the odds are of being able to take a full weekend away from the family to head up to Kripalu – I wanted to bring the experience of 3 days spent away from the real world to Moms here in the Providence area, and offer a distilled version of a longer retreat in one mind-blowing day. There are still a few spots left, and I’m offering Kidoinfo readers 20% off.”
