Using LOA for weaning toddlers

Explicit language and ideas.  Don’t read if you can’t handle.  My littlest is weaning and is very close to actually stopping her nursing at bedtime.  Any attachment parent knows that this can be a lovely transition into her “big girl” status, and some folks like me know that this is LOA all the way.

Some parents choose to end their nursing when they want (which can be good for some) but my belief is that making a child unhappy (when nursing/feeding this way is what they were meant to do) in order to make the adult happy can lead to quite a few problems in the child.  More

Adding some Ease into your Friday

This is a really general Abraham Hicks video about Ease and Flow, and because it’s really general, it makes you melt into this delicious vibe of easy. No specifics about where in life you want easy and it works!

I really do like the ease of my world, how I don’t have to control or monitor anything but myself.  Guiding might be the better word!  I try to focus on ease with my parenting, because I want to have an easy going style with my children, I want them to be cooperative and contribute to our harmonious family life, so ease is an essential.

I want that ease with family and friends and groups, with pick ups and drop offs, with exercise, with fun, with stuff I feel I want to get done, with work, with my husband, with phone calls, with paperwork, with technology.  If I practice Ease in general, it shows up in all the places I would expect it to be.

Challenging Teen Kids Push Your Buttons

I love being an LOA parent and coach, but my kids still do push my buttons from time to time…or daily.

I keep changing my perspective so that I see myself as an evolving being, so that no one is really right or wrong.  I want my kids to know the power they hold for themselves, so how can I best show them their power?  It’s certainly NOT in taking their power, freedom, favorite things away.  A very misaligned parent takes away from a child to show their power OVER the child.  An aligned parent stays in touch with Source and easily speaks with clarity and grace to her children without expectation that they must obey, for every being is free to decide his/her fate.

And them comes TEENS.  I now have a 13 year old daughter, who is brilliant, funny, and amazing in too many ways to tell you about.  I am glad I can see all the good in her, so when rough moments come, it’s easy to remember.  When a teen pushes your buttons, you need to have your own foundation, and that is within you…All is well, life is easy, every day in every way, I am getting better and better. (And it’s all true!)

You have your own strong foundation, your kids don’t push your buttons!  Get it?

So, here is a video, that gets better as it goes along as well.  The clarity and strength is exactly what I needed to hear about those moments when I’m thinking upstream thoughts, so I can turn them into downstream thoughts about self and having a good relationship with my teen.

Much love, and many blessings from Jen C., the LOA coach
