(Robyn): If you love yourself, you can love and be compassionate to others. "Love yourself!" An excellent lesson for parents and children alike.

"...while you may believe your most important challenge is to raise your children well, there's an even more essential task you need to attend to, which is the foundation of effective parenting. This task is to raise yourself into the most awakened and present individual you can be. The reason this is central to good parenting is that children don't need our idea and expectation, or our dominance and control, only for us to be attuned to them with our engaged presence." - Dr. Shefali Tsabary

(Robyn): Here is a great article. When I read it, I immediately knew my own point of view; however, my husband has a completely different opinion. It is a real topic that merits discussion. When you are with your kids, do you feel that sometimes you are focused on your smartphone too much? http://ow.ly/wq7gx

At what age do you have kids write thank you cards for gifts? To me, the earlier the better (even if all they can do is write their name at the bottom of your thank you). Not only does it teach the important lesson of gratitude, but also helps them learn how to write letters and fill out an envelope to mail.

"Separating into 'us' and 'them' is an act of violence. It sows the seeds of prejudice. We are all the same. We are souls. We are love." - Brian Weiss
Teaching our kids love, instead of hatred, is what will ultimately create a more peaceful world for the generations to come.

It is inevitable that sometimes, you will get in a disagreement with your significant partner in front of your children. Communicating with respect, even during disagreements, can bring about opportunities for children to learn conflict resolution in a positive manner.

It is inevitable that at one point our role as parent will shift from creating boundaries and making decisions for our children to one in which we support the decisions our children make. Check out my latest blog about how I recently supported my daughter's decision to cut her hair short. http://ow.ly/uFMku

(Robyn): Being present in the moment becomes easier the more your practice it. If you are thinking about the past or ruminating about the future, you are missing out on the joy of this very moment, and then it is gone. Allow yourself to experience the joy...
