Which Life Skills for my kids?

Conversation about choosing Basic Life skills for kids.  Summer is a good time to start habits, practice and focus on what's needed in our family

 

Summer is  a great time of year to focus on some of the life skills we’ve skipped over during the year. No matter what the age of the children there’s probably been something they didn’t do this year ALL because we didn’t think they had the skills yet.

During the show I’m sharing 12 life skills to revise with children especially as the last time you had these conversations the kids were younger or you’ve moved house.

Contributions and what it means.

If you’re looking to ways to have a slow and deliberate summer of rhythm then create your summer rhythm.

One fun way of trying summer activities is to write a summer bucket list.

It’s not about completing the list, although wouldn’t that be great. It’s about setting habits and equiping our children for the future.

As much as I would like to say we’ve done everything. We haven’t.

I hope that these life skill start you thinking about the life skills for your children and you write your list.

I’d love to see what you would add in the comments below.

Finding Joy and Happiness in the Midst of Motherhood

Lauren Fire talks about the tender subject of finding joy and happiness in the midst of motherhood. This was a fun interview and Lauren of inspiringmama.com has a lot of great information and practical advice.

Since recording this interview I’d encourage you to check out her show on mom dating. (After you’ve listening to this show you’ll see how that show follows on. I was nodding through that too. )

Be sure to follow Lauren on  Facebook and listen to her podcast.

During the interview Lauren shares

  • What’s the big deal with choosing happiness?
  • How do you choose to have happiness from the very start of the day? Having our ‘to be list’
  • How do you remain calm or become calm in stressful situations?
  • What happiness practices would you encourage when you’re a sleep deprived mom? ( Link to this podcast with Alan Ting)
  • How to cut family drama? Relationship expert holiday time and how to shift them

  • How do you find the right type of friend in a new place how do we go from hi we have kids the same age to okay we’re friends. ( How to pick up  mummy friends and deepen relationships)
  • We talk about how choosing friends is really important because we become who we are with.

Connecting with your child without opening your mouth

Connecting with your child without opening your mouth

 

One of my favourite early pictures of my son is this one.

Our kids come in stereo surround sound and our homes can often be full of sound and activity.

We don’t have to connect with our children only through sound. Using non verbal communication is powerful, useful and comforting in many situations.

There’s an affiliate link in this post.

It rescues us when we have a little voice.  When we need to share privately but in public. When we need to be quiet but communicate from a distance. When we need some quiet and stillness. When we need a change of mood. When we need a focus change.

Today I’m exploring 9 ways we can communicate with our children without opening our mouth.
