Back and forth journals for Mom and kids. I really love this idea for kids who keep their feelings inside. >> I had this idea, years ago, before I knew anyone else had done it. because I wished my parents/mom and I could have used the idea.
Fill your child with self-esteem. Children need their buckets filled each day by their parents and other adults and family members. The remainder of the day people will be taking things out of the bucket. Make sure your child's bucket never gets empty.
Being a mother brings me a lot of joy - and also exhaustion! Luckily I have found ways (nutrition, exercise, reiki, minfulness) to keep me sane and smiling - happy mama = happy son (and the other way round)
How to teach children to tell the truth. We can't expect our children to be honest if we are lying. We can't expect them to want to tell the truth if we scare and offer punishment. Discipline not punishment.
