Encourage kids  and caretakers join in to play sports such as soccer, basketball, skateboarding or surfing, boogie board Remember all summer long wear comfortable shoes likes crocs  www.crocs.com so you can keep moving from the boat to the playground, beach and backyard.

The more you move the more you can build strength, coordination and mental stamina doing unplanned fun activities. Walk, local parks, to the store, church friends house, wherever your heart desires. Its calming to the mind and great for your body. Also you will find that you sleep better with the fresh air.SFVI1439

Earn a little money, have the kids clean out and sell there old toys and clothes. Also a good old fashion lemon aid stand is great, it teaches kids very quickly about money and dealing with people.2016-02-09 22.46.54-2

Book club and Art Club It’s a fantastic way for them to socialize and read a book.  Make it fun let your kids pick the book. Even if they just read a few chapters or draw pictures to join in the conversation its good constructive fun.IMG_7783

 

Movie night is great,  its fun to watch Dad’s favorite and Moms favorite comedies too. Very nostalgic and always a good conversation starter.

 

Meditate, in this busy world I know it’s hard to stop but just sit unplugged, for 5 minutes in  with your eyes closed unplugged.

You will see how you slowly increase to 10, 15 minutes. You will feel more refreshed and productive. A healthy mind and body makes you more productive and a better problem solver.

tuckeblstbanner-300x217The reviews for TUCK EVERLASTING are in, and the critics are split…it turn out to be magical Broadway shows. I personally loved it, theater to me is pure relaxation and fun.  Though there are moments of brilliance in the music by Chris Miller, lyrics by Nathan Tysen, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw, the heavy-handed book offers more challenges than rewards. The plot is satisfyingly streamlined, for all audiences of all ages. The acting is commendable overall, but the highlight of the show is Terrence Mann as The Man in the Yellow Suit, portrayed as a delightful carnival barker.  The costumes were beautiful. The singing and dancing magical. I loved this play, it’s a reminder to enjoy every stage of your life and truly I would not want to live forever, nor should we, but go to relive one of your favorite childhood stories.

Parenting cell phones, tips and reminders!

Unknown-2images-16images-8Parents and cell phones! I hate to pass judgment, but here are some tips and reminders why we need to be mindful. Everyone is clearly overusing cell phones its not only kids that are over using parents are too. Remember kids model adult behavior, this is how they grow to be functioning adults. It makes me crazy when I see a child and adult dining and the parent is ignoring the child talking to a friends or texting. Children need interaction with parents they need to feel acknowledged and secure, which helps them in their social skills and future self-esteem it begins when a baby smiles, the parent smiles back and laughs, so does mom and dad this is called “mirroring.”

Parents over use of cell phones around kids, can cause emotional and physical dangers,  When a parent is ignoring there child and always on the phone I call it the“emotional freeze out”, the poor kids have to compete with a phone, this causes a lot of anxiety for kids and they are start seeking attention any way they can get it. Kids also misbehave when they know there parents are distracted.

I don’t want to shame parents but here are guidelines that we can all use, even when we are working and taking kids on a outing at the zoo.

1.   Do not use the phone at meal time, engage with your  family  Have a phone basket during dinner every ones phone goes in the basket until meal time is over

2.   When at events WATCH your children, be engaged in the event, put your phone on vibrate and tell your other family member friends what you are doing so they wont be calling or texting you at that time

3.   If you are mobile working, hold your Childs hand or have help watching them if you are returning messages

4.   If you have a call to answer keep it brief, and don’t get into long conversations 

5.   Speak softly, respect surroundings

6.   Remember you don’t have to be in constant contact

7.Send out a auto response that “I'm unavailable , if its a emergency call this number 

8.Dont be looking at your phone crossing street, driving, and at the movies with the bright light

 9. Show children by example, if I hear one more  stupid, waste of time conversation while standing on line, as the kids run around I'm going to say "excuse me, but…"  

10. I also think that parents need to help each other out, if you have a important call to make during a outing I know most moms would have no problem keeping a eye on your child for a few minutes.

11. If you need to check your phone, acknowledge the people you are with and say excuse me, I have to check my phone.

 
Respect people, respect the surroundings, respect your children and most conversations and texting are just a distraction from dealing with real life.
ENGAGE and stay in the moment.http://www.marketwatch.com/story/parents-heres-the-no-1-reason-you-should-get-off-your-cellphones-2016-06-06
