    Peaceful Parenting Practices: Knowing Your Family Core Values

    in Motivation

    Welcome to Blog Talk Radio and the Voice of Change.  Rivka Kawano and I are coming together to host 4 radio programs on PEACEFUL PARENTING PRACTICES.  We are also hosting a 30 Day Parenting Challenge* for Parents, running from October 1 through October 30.


    KNOWING YOUR FAMILY CORE VALUES:  When you take time to discover the Core Values you and your spouse hold more dear, parenting becomes much easier. Knowing your values makes it easier to say "yes" and "not" when situations arise. Also, when each parent understands the values they hold most dear, as a person they can be more easily understood.  Also, recognizing what is important to each of your children, gives you a deeper understanding about their needs and preferences.


    SURPRISE TOPIC: Each week we'll have a 2nd topic of discussion. This one will be a surprise!  But you can trust it will be about a Peaceful Parenting Practice that will add greatly to you family life.

    Peaceful Parenting Practices: "YES" Environments for the Family

    in Motivation

    Welcome to Blog Talk Radio and the Voice of Change.  Rivka Kawano and I are coming together to host 4 radio programs on PEACEFUL PARENTING PRACTICES.  We are also hosting a 30 Day Parenting Challenge* for Parents, running from October 1 through October 30.


    "YES" ENVIRONMENTS FOR THE FAMILY:  A "YES" environment is one that allows a person to thrive. When children have "YES" environments in their home, they are able to entertain themselves as well as playing with other children nicely, for the most part.  "YES" environments also lead to independence for children.  Parents, too, need "YES" environments, designed especially for their needs and desires. Such places can be created in a small apartment or a huge house.  Such environments can be a permanent place in the home or temporary.  Tune in, we'll discuss all this and more!  


    SURPRISE TOPIC: Each week we'll have a 2nd topic of discussion. This one will be a surprise!  But you can trust it will be about a Peaceful Parenting Practice that will add greatly to you family life.
