      Love Ahead:

      And lots of learning opportunities

      With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I think of this month as "love
      month." Self-love, loving each other - friends, siblings, parents, partners.
      I'm happy to share several of my articles on these subjects and will start you
      off with a paragraph or two to get you started.

      Valentine's Day: Everyone Deserves to Be Happy:

      What better way to help a child find happiness than to start within... being
      her own best friend. When your child has a best friend inside, she can be happy
      no matter what storms of life are outside. With a strong foundation of
      self-love and self-acceptance, kids learn to value their own company and
      integrity over just fitting in. They realize they can nurture and depend on

      Like six-year-old Chloe.... [2]Read more here.

      5 Tips to Turn the Tide: Parents and Kids Living Together Lovingly:

      Parents often complain to me about their kid's behavior. They are relieved but
      dumbfounded when others compliment them on their well-behaved children. "Why
      don't I ever see that kid?" they ask. If this sounds familiar, take heart. Your
      child's awful behavior is a sign of comfort, of trust in your love and
      consistency. He knows he can dish out the worst and you won't abandon him. You
      might chastise, punish, or yell, but you won't stop being his parents.

      Eleven-year-old Grace has always been a challenge... [3]Read more here.

      Time to Open Your Heart:

      Think about how you'd approach your family, your partner, even yourself if you
      took a little time to nurture YOU and allow your heart to open. How would your
      life be different? Better? More satisfying? Imagine where an open-heart could
      lead you. Where would you want it to?

      I'd like to share a short heart-centered and heart-opening meditation - good
      for the whole family.

      [4]Read more here.

      And finally...

      Appreciate Your Child Every Day:

      I've written about the Top Ten Things Kids Want and Need From Their Parents in
      The Power of Your Child's Imagination, although "appreciation" is not on their
      list. Kids often don't even realize it's importance. But you do. So let your
      children know at least one thing you appreciate about them - or are grateful
      for - each day. Perhaps it's your four-year-old's smile as she dresses herself
      proudly, or that your son still lets you hug him at age 12... anything that
      touches your heart. And by your example, they will learn to share what they
      appreciate as well. Some families like to keep a running list to look upon when
      the tough times come.

      TEDx Studio City ED:

      Self-Regulation + Technology + Education

      Saturday, March 3, 2012

      TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a
      four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those
      world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. In the spirit of ideas worth
      spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people
      together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and
      live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small

      At TEDx Studio City Ed, the focus is on Self-Regulation, Technology, and
      Education. Children require strategies to self-soothe, calm themselves, and
      operate at an optimal level of arousal. Being in a calm steady state is
      required for success in school and in life. I'm thrilled to be part of a group
      of speakers from diverse disciplines who will come together to elucidate the
      latest advances in this area.

      Organized by Lee-Anne Gray, PsyD, featured speakers include Dan Siegel MD,
      Sandra Kaplan EdD, Venerable Tenzin Yignyen, Cheryl Arutt PsyD, Gwennyth
      Palofox PhD, Lewis Tachau, and Susan Kaiser Greenland.

      [25]The Power of Your Child's Imagination: How to Transform Stress and Anxiety
      into Joy and Success

      "A new treasure, Dr. Charlotte Reznick's new book on the power of the
      imagination for both children and adults has much to recommend it. Dr. Reznick
      has arranged the book in such a way that you can go directly to a specific area
      where you need some help such as When Pleasure Pains Your Brain, or I found
      that I could open the book at random and find a section that kept me reading
      for some time."
