How often when you’re in disagreement with someone- a spouse, a friend, a colleague or boss, do you say to each other “We have different opinions on this matter. Let’s just agree to disagree and move on”? I don’t know about you, but for me, I get into these no-argument stalemate positions often, especially with someone who is on the “other side of the aisle” from me regarding a related to a political, religious or social issue. I was listening to the audiobook by ...
Things you learn from a dog: Have a great attitude Greet everyone with enthusiasm Explore everything Loyalty is a virtue Protect those you love Be yourself Love unconditionally I loved a picture I saw of a dog with a sign hanging from its mouth stating the above attributes.

What if every time your child cries or tantrums, he or she is actually doing something highly worthwhile? We don’t always appreciate it when our children begin to cry, but what they are actually doing is making use of the body’s innate recovery system. When we are hurt, physically or emotionally, instead of storing it up in our bodies as tension, we can use it by crying, raging or trembling. This is how the body processes and releases feelings.

More than 50 years ago, the psychologist Carl Rogers suggested that simply loving our children wasn’t enough. We have to love them  unconditionally , he said — for who they are, not for what they do. As a father, I know this is a tall order, but it becomes even more challenging now that so much of the advice we are given amounts to exactly the opposite. In effect, we’re given tips in  conditional  parenting, which comes in two flavors: turn up the affection when ...
If you’re the parent of a young child, you know how difficult it can be to get your kid to apologize when they have wronged a friend, sibling or playground foe. Let me paint an all-too-common picture. Moms and dads are casually sipping their lattes, chit-chatting on the perimeter of a playground. Kids are playing and having a great time—until they’re not. Two 4-year-olds, Billy and Lisa, have reached the top of the much-loved twisty slide at the exact same time. Lisa (a little ...
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane with our Dads. As you read the different daddy-stories, think about your most cherished memories with your father. Daddy’s Girl I can see a little girl with an impeccable internal clock sensing when it’s time for her dad to get home from work. Picture this, she’s outside playing softball, volleyball, or jacks but she is positioned—while playing—so that when her dad drives up, she’ll see him.  And when he does, she stops whatever ...
What Is Your Purpose? Have you discovered your purpose? Do you have an inner depth urge? Not sure, what is happening... A reoccurring feeling... Do you find yourself wanting to look deeper but feel safer if you left it alone? Finding yourself in situations that you preffered you were not involved in? Do you find yourself waking up in the early hours of the morning again and again? Sometimes with insight or a glimpse? “All this and more have happened to me over the past ...
Without question, there is not a more celebrated group of superhuman beings than our mothers, aka Mum, Momma, Mom, Mother-Dear, Mummy, or Mommy. Neither is there a more deserving group graced with the title, “Mother.” From the time you arrive in earth’s sphere, you are greeted by a woman you just know has to be God, herself. For she is surely the absolute of love. She accepts, loves, and cares for you as if you were the most important person in the entire world, and indeed you ...
You’ve just launched your last Millennial, again; you’ve transformed the final bedroom into your very own art gallery. Now your entire house is yours.  You don’t have to put a robe on to walk through the house; you and the wife have big plans of hosting “Painting with a Twist” parties, couples game-night counseling groups, and other personal conjugal evenings together.
