    Hello Mel,
    My name is Halina Schafer and I’m also a new author. My genre is birth thru pre-school(up to age 4). I invite you to my Author Page, here on Facebook, and / or my website to read about my research that makes the book just as much for the reader a the child. We must have educated parents who can respond from love to give our children encouragement and help to develope their fullpotential.

    You and I are coming at the same outcome, just from different stages of child development. Part of that happens when a parent has a peaceful countenence. Kids mirror parents, in all aspects,including the ability to handle stress.

    Your article is of most importance. Bravo!

      Hi Halina – it’s lovely to meet you! I’d love to read your research – there’s never too much to learn on this subject 🙂 I absolutely agree with you about kids modelling their parents and I’m still working on my own ability to handle stress! 😉

    Cant wait for your next article. I love hearing different mindfulness tools. Especially ones for the kids. You cant have enough tools in your toolkit I say!

    Yes let’s give our children the tools to hold onto their strong sense of worth that they are born with so they can forever shine brightly. We should never dull our beautiful light. Great article

      Thanks lovely! I totally agree. As our kids get older they’re influenced more and more by other people, society and the media. Some of those influences are great and some not so much. We can’t keep them in a bubble but we can teach them to recognise when those influences are in line with their own values and when they need to disregard them.
