Our lives are so busy that even when we to go on an adventure, like a hike with our family, we tend to rush through it. Learn about the benefits of taking the time to slow down and enjoy the small stuff.
When crises like the one unfolding in Ukraine occur on the world stage, it’s hard to know what (and how much) to tell our kids. Whether or not we mean to, adults can contribute to anxiety and fear in children by their words, actions and reactions.

Children are an absolute gift! As parents, we want the best for our children in all aspects of their lives. After all, their happiness means the world. However, this is the time of year when parents begin to hear more and more about the things their children want as the holiday lists roll in.
When we are presenting to audiences of 200+ or talking with individual coaching clients, one thing we hear more often than we would expect is,
“My child won’t let me…”
Many times, without anyone actually realizing it is happening, children are ruling the home. The children have the power and the parents, while not happy about it, throw up their hands, shrug their shoulders and go along with it.
