February is all about sharing love. While not everyone likes the “Hallmark holiday”, Valentine’s Day does remind us that attending to the relationships in our lives is important. Research shows that kids thrive when they are in connection with the adults in their lives. The National Longitudinal Study on Adolescent Health reported that teens who reported feeling connected to a parent (and/or school staff) had less emotional distress, engaged less frequently in risky and violent behavior, and noted better mental health. Experts in the field of child development note how critically important con ..read more

My kids have gotten older, but my love for holiday traditions has not. So, this year I am trying to find ways to maybe tweak what we loved doing in the past to make it more fun for my teens. I thought I would share a few ideas I have seen on social media and from my own friend group. I would also like to add that even if you think they are too old to enjoy doing certain traditions, they will probably still enjoy it. Maybe just don’t post pics of them enjoying those younger traditions on social media – lol. One of my favorite memories every year is doing Christmas crafts together the day before ..read more

One of the most common questions that I hear parents asking is “how do I get my child to listen better?” Now, the answer to this can obviously be complex and unique to each parent-child relationship. As a therapist and parenting coach I also know that one of the best places to start addressing that question is by starting at the beginning – attending to the relationship between the parent and child. As human beings, we strive to be in connection with others and the connection between parent and child is one of the strongest drives we have. Children need to have a strong attachment to their par ..read more

This past weekend I attended the Moon River Music Festival in Chattanooga. It was a great weekend road trip. Along with great music, there were also lots of fun activities to do. The festival was held at Coolidge Park in Chattanooga, TN. There were tons of food, drinks, and merchandise tents lined up all around the edge of the festival. Because there were so many tents, the lines were not as bad as you would expect! One tent area that stood out was The Treehouse. This is an area for families to drop off their children for a while so the adults can enjoy the festival kid-free. This is a great i ..read more

We are a family of horse lovers. My daughter recently acquired a new mare. She is a young horse, raised by a single family and loved by them her whole life thus far. She is well-trained, experienced in everything we would want, and will make a great kid’s horse. Well, this beauty came to us, and you can tell she is out of her element. She is nervous, listening to everything in her new surroundings. She doesn’t want anything to do with the dogs or the machinery or even with the other horses we have; things she is all very well accustomed to from her previous home. I read somewhere that it can t ..read more
