Giving children an answer to questions such as why evil people cause suffering for others, is a question on many of our minds today. The answer is simple – evil people want to make others suffer.

My first thought upon hearing that an adopted child was returned to Russia was that the adoptive mother must be alone and suffering from a terminal illness. After hearing the report on the news that the child was returned carrying a note in his backpack with an unconfirmed statement about his emotional stability, made me […]

Is your child perfect?

March 24th, 2010

The answer to that question is “of course”.  But do you ever ask yourself if you are a perfect parent?  The answer to that question probably ranges from “could be better” to “not at all” and some may even say “of course”.  Most parents tend to be overly critical of themselves and when it comes to the most difficult […]

Reading to you child each day doesn’t take long and can make a big impact on him/her.  It is a bonding time giving comfort after a long day to both.  A short book, a chapter or two, even the daily comics can become a special time for you and your child to look forward.  The soothing sound of your […]

Learning to ride a bike involves a great deal of concentration –  balancing on two wheels,  pressing  your feet to the foot pedals,  keeping your eye on the road, steering the front wheel to go straight ahead and listening to the cheers of observers.  Before you know it you are flying down the street with the breeze in […]

Are you a good listener?

February 26th, 2010

Children will ask the same questions repeatedly and because parents have already answered the question once they tend to ignore their child the second and third time around.  The child is not always asking the question becaue she is curious about the answer, but rather looking for attention.  Showing your child that you are interested […]

The act of talking can mean telling someone your thoughts and opinions, listening to their comments, responding with a question, listening, commenting and asking more questions.  The result of conversing is a better understanding of how that person looks at life and interprets it.  Hearing someone else’s way of looking at a situation from a completely different perspective […]
