  • Conflict Resolution

    Conflict Resolution

    Let’s face it, conflict is hard and is bound to happen no matter what ground rules are put into place. Whether it’s on the playground or right in our own homes, children will clash. And while it can create challenging situations, it is a normal event that occurs between children. This is why conflict resolution is an essential life skill for them to learn. In order to help them, though, early instruction is key in making this a standard routine during disagreements with others. Often when children are involved in conflict, one of two things happen. Either the parent rushes into save their child or the child goes to an adult immediately. And yes, when there is physical violence ....

  • Maintaining Healthy Development

    Maintaining Healthy Development

    With our country at somewhat of a standstill due to the current pandemic, it’s easy to get into a routine that is more laid back. Anything from going to bed late to increased screen time, habits may start leaning on the unhealthy side. And one of the major behaviors that appear when we are in a stressful situation is that we reach for comfort food. And while it may seem as though the current situation will only last for a short time, the long-term effects of our eating habits can have an impact on children’s physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development. Therefore, it’s essential that parents maintain a healthy lifestyle for their family. In today’s ....

  • Supporting Children’s Emotional Needs During the Pandemic – Part 2

    Supporting Children’s Emotional Needs During the Pandemic – Part 2

    We are all human and our responses to our current situation vary. Some have hunkered down and sorted through their new reality in a way that has motivated them to complete tasks and put new goals in place. Others have become increasingly overwhelmed and feel like they have no control over their lives at all. It’s important to note, however that there is not a right or wrong way to respond to what we have been presented with. It solely depends on each individual person and how they cope. And as parents are working to navigate their own emotions, they must also help their children manage their feelings.
    When parents normalize feelings and show empathy, children are more receptive to ....

    Supporting Children’s Emotional Needs During the Pandemic – Part 1

    As the pandemic carries on, our coping skills are starting to unravel. For many people, this has become the ultimate emotional test. As we continue to maintain our distance from each other, not only have our social lives been halted, but our emotional support is wavering as well. And while we have been living this reality this for some time, it is not getting any easier. In fact, it is getting a bit harder, especially for children. In order to mitigate this emotional imbalance, it is important to put things into place to help them feel morestable. Understanding that feelings and responses to the same pandemic are going to vary from person to person is important. Parents need to take time ....

  • If You Train More, You Gain More

    If You Train More, You Gain More

    It’s April 29, and Day 44 of Shelter in Place
    I had a parent tell me the other day that their child is practicing Wushu every day because they are stuck at home. And I just thought that was so cool. It reminded me of classic Chinese Kung Fu TV-series - if you’ve never seen them, think The Mandalorian except set in ancient China with hundreds of competing warriors, monks, and Wushu schools. Often based on popular novels, the stories frequently have the protagonist trapped in a cave with nothing more than a Kung Fu book and an unlimited source of food and water (which is never adequately explained). He then spends years poring over the information in the book, practicing it to ....

  • We Improve Your Child's Bilateral Coordination - And Why It's Important

    We Improve Your Child's Bilateral Coordination - And Why It's Important

    The development of a child can be one of the most fascinating things to watch unfold. From infants mirroring movements to toddlers and children mastering high level developmental skills, the growth they experience in a short time is astounding. And while all skills are important for children to master, bilateral coordination is an important prerequisite for development of a variety of motor and cognitive skills. Bilateral coordination is the ability to synchronize both sides of the body in a controlled manner. An important aspect of this is “crossing the midline.” This is a spontaneous movement and involves being able to cross an imaginary line that runs down the center of the ....
