August is upon us, and the first thing that comes to my mind is that summer is almost over. The kids will soon be heading back to school. As such, this issue has many articles focusing on children’s needs, as well as tips to make us better parents.
Check out our “Enlightened Parenting” article for ideas on how to teach young children values without over-parenting throughout their early years. If your children are older, I recommend reading “10 Steps to Family Happiness.” It offers helpful skills we can all incorporate into our daily lives.
A favorite article of mine in this issue is “Kid Chef.” If your children are picky eaters (I know I was!), take a look at the article for tips on overcoming this issue with classes for tiny chefs. It is a positive and fun way to engage your children in trying different healthy foods that they can even make themselves. There are also some tasty recipes included for both you and the kids to try at home.
I also suggest checking out the “Green Arts” article, as crafts have always been a great hobby of mine. There are so many options available, from non-toxic paints to recycled fibers for knitting. I am amazed at the softness of the yarns available, and they are still eco-friendly. Whether you’re young or old, crafts are a fun, relaxing way to spend your time and an ideal option for wholesome family
Enjoy your summer,
