A lot of you've reached out to me with questions around sensory issues, sensory integration, and how to support the development of the senses in our young children. For today's show, I invited a dear friend Lalla Carini who's been an extremely important teacher in my life for the past 14 years to share her wisdom and experience. She holds a tremendous amount of love and compassion around these topics and I'm so excited to share with you today. __ Thank you for taking the time to listen to this show.

If your child has some anxiety about separating, it can be super helpful for them to see you connecting with the teacher.  I would invite the parent to hold their child and sit down with me for tea. When the child witnesses the safety and trust that is present between parent and teacher, they can more easily trust themselves.  This can be more important than pressuring the child to open up to the teacher and accept them. Also, if you have rarely left your child, then some practice with family members or good friends is a good idea before school.  Practice your goodbye routine over and over at grandma’s house then when you do it on the first day, it will actually feel supportive.

Our children stand before us with endless “What” and “Why” questions, they push back on our requests, refuse our meals, and challenge us to go back inside and come up with something better than, “Because I said so!” But the truth is, during these formative years, our children take in very little of our verbal communication with them. So many parents worry about crafting the perfect answer, offering the right activity, disciplining the most effectively, etc, when what matters the most is our internal world.

Today’s conversation is a dense one.   I would recommend listening when you are not distracted or multi tasking. We are headed into about an hour with a dear friend of mine named Rob Scott. He has spent the last decade of his life working with hundreds of thousands of people, shifting their identities, and showing them how to evolve their consciousness and get incredible results across all areas of their businesses, their health, their relationships, and their entire lives. I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with Rob myself in a few different ways over the past 4 years and I am so grateful.  What I find so profound is that all of the shifts I made while working with him have been impossible to unsee. And the illumination of what is truly serving me in my life, being able to let go of all that isn’t, has allowed me to show up in service to you parents in a whole new way. So I am really excited to share this conversation with you.   Much Love. -Christina

The Truth Of Our Voice

The Truth Of Our Voice

2019-02-0600:14:302

It can feel impossible to speak our truth when it has been dismissed and de-valued our entire life. Especially when our subconscious has connected speaking out to experiencing pain. It can feel scary to find out that our truth looks very different from who our parents think we should be. Every human walking the earth has a story. As we come into contact, we cannot help but to project our story onto each other. When we take the time to get to know our own story, our own beliefs, our own limitations, the more we begin to see what belongs to us and what belongs to the other. If we are blind to this when we have children, they quickly become the screens for our personal movie.
It's OK to Let Your Sads Out

It's OK to Let Your Sads Out

When our child is tantruming, pushing back or having a difficult time it can be challenging for us to hold space in that moment because we have so many unshed tears ourselves.    Years and years of suppressed emotions that then get "triggered" when our child is going through something or an experience that we have not yet had the opportunity to work through or release ourselves.    So in the heat of the moment, it can be difficult to untangle which emotions belong to us and which ones belong to our child.   A mentor once offered me a very useful shift in perspective and that's what I want to share with you today.   Much Love, Christina

Letting Go of Agenda

It can be exhausting to go through every day guiding a young child this way and that way, moment by moment. When you develop a routine it will carry the whole family and the child quickly learns what is coming next which supports them to go with the flow. By setting a routine you are deciding ahead of time, with your partner and any other caregivers, what your limits are and where they lie. This way when something unexpected comes up, you are supported by this framework.

Emotional and social intelligence grows and develops through relationship and primarily through the experiences that a child has with his or her parents. When we offer our children empathy and help them to cope with negative feelings like anger, sadness, and fear, we create a foundation of loyalty and trust that our children carry with them throughout their lives. This is a quick story of how I approach this with my daughter. In Service, Christina
