Yoga Parenting Course Featured on Great Day St. Louis

Last Friday, Zen Mommy and Carol Daniels talked about the Yoga Parenting course. Suzanne shared tips with viewers on using some of the tools included in the 8-week online course: the signs, the time machine, and the bunny breath.

One of the things that I love about these tools as they aren’t just “gimicks.” They work — with kids of all ages, not just toddlers and preschoolers but also teens and grown children (even spouses)! *wink*

There’s a reason that they work and it’s all rooted in the brain and how we are wired as humans. The Signs work because as Suzanne explains to Carol, it disengages us from the power struggle. It also activates a different part of your child’s brain: the one that has to visually read the sign.

Bunny Breath works because it oxygenates the brain. When stressed, we operate from the brain stem, the most primitive part of the brain. When we breathe, we move up to the neocortex, where higher level thinking and learning occurs.

How to Empower Our Kids: Responsibility

We are so excited to be partnering with Myself Belts on this video series, providing tips for you on how to empower our kids! In my experience with my girl and boy, there’s nothing like that, “I did it myself moment!” You see them puff up with pride, like Anne Jordan says. And, you actually feel yourself puff up with pride for them too!

One of the things that Talia notes in this segment is that giving them the responsibility of getting ready in the morning is one less thing for her to do. That’s the beauty of the Yoga Parenting approach of being “the guide by the side.” [Read more…]

How to Manage Relationships, Online and Offline

Like it or not, your kids are getting online. And they are likely to be more versed on making “friends” than we are. At some point, they’ll get a weird message or get unfriended. *gasp* So how are we going to guide them in the world of Club Penguin and Pixie Hollow?
