Cleaning with Kids: Fun Strategies to Engage Their Help

Cleaning with kids isn't easy---sometimes it seems like all they want to do is play! One day, though, everything changed in how I viewed the process. Suddenly, life got a whole lot easier. I was in the kitchen making homemade almond butter (yum!). My five-year-old walked in with her cup of water and announced, "Mommy, […]

Pumpkin-Spiced Dandelion Root Latte (Guest Blog!)

If you're anything like me, hints of cooler weather have you savoring the last sparkling lemonades and crunchy salads of the Summer, while also looking forward to savory soups and steamy, hot drinks. As visions of pumpkins dance through my head (and at the grocery stores and coffee shop menus), I can close my eyes […]

Beauty and the Child: Building Self-Esteem

Due to my Mom’s work as an international model and actress, I spent most of my formative years surrounded by some of the World’s Most Beautiful People. Some, like my Mom, just happened to be beautiful on the inside, too, but that certainly wasn’t the case for everyone. Couple my surroundings with my passion for […]

Instant Pot® Carrot Ginger Lentil Stew

Half the people in our city are sick this week. Half. No good, I say! We like feeling healthy and strong, thank you very much. I have no time to be down with a cold or flu. So, to the extent that I can, I'm giving my body every tool imaginable to keep it working […]

When Bad Things Happen to Good (Little) People: Building Emotional Intelligence

I was just waking up and remembered that I needed to move some food from the night before from the refrigerator to the freezer. Upon opening the fridge, I noticed that the lid on the food wasn't secure, so I tried to push it down. In doing so, my Superheroine-Like Muscles (that must be it, […]

The Boy in the Road

I was driving home from the doctor with my five-year-old child. She was on day six of a 102-degree fever and all its accompanying crud. All she wanted was to get back home, as did I. As we were driving along a busy two-lane road at about 35 miles per hour, I saw him. A […]

Carrot Cake for Everyone (Even for People Who Think They Don't Like It)

I've never been a fan of carrot cake. It may be because it goes against one of my core values, which is not to mix vegetables with dessert. I'm no scientist, but I'm pretty sure there's a separate compartment in our bellies for All Things Sweet, and anything healthy in there simply contaminates it. But […]

Observing the Experts (Who Are Rarely Adults, With This Exception)

For the past week, I've attended a multi-age outdoor school led by Teacher Tom, who's hailed by parenting experts as one of the "world’s leading practitioners of 'democratic play-based' education."* If you haven't followed his blog or bought his book, you should, and if you can attend his class, even better. Although I exceed the age limit for […]

Finding Support for Gentle Parenting

One of the most common concerns I hear from parents who are attempting gentle parenting isn't whether they're doing this, that, or the other thing right. Although we all have questions about how to manage certain aspects of gentle parenting, it's not usually the daily how-to's that make us consider throwing in the towel. One of […]

The Parenting Strength of (Seemingly) Doing Nothing

There's a little boy in Teacher Tom's multi-age summer school whose name isn't Jimmy, but I'm saying it is to protect his privacy. Jimmy is quite little, as in, he still has to wear a sticker on his back that reads, "Please take me to the bathroom at 2 p.m." He can't be any older than his […]
