The parenting manual you wish you were born with

c/o Tarcher/Perigee
With so much mindfulness, love and kindness being practiced these days, one would hope such efforts would extend to the parenting domain. It is the most important job many of us will have and relationship we'll cultivate in this lifetime, after all.

Greater emotional awareness, clear communication and joyfulness are key tenets to positive parenting, according to Rebecca Eanes, author of, The Positive Parenting Workbook: an interactive guide for strengthening emotional connection (Tarcher Perigee, $15.00).

Giftwatch: Yoga love in a card deck!

c/o Giselle Shardlow

Why wait until Valentines Day to spread love? LOVE Yoga Cards for Kids makes a heart-warming gift for young yogis all year round.

We spoke with creator, Giselle Shardlow, best-selling author of the Kids Yoga Stories books series, on the inspiration behind this new product and how parents and caregivers can best use it as a teaching tool.

KYD: How did this product idea come about? 

GS: I wanted to create a quick and easy way for our community of teachers, parents, and health practitioners to integrate yoga into their celebration of Valentine’s Day. But I also wanted a way to celebrate love and kindness throughout the year. And most importantly, my daughter and I have enjoyed playing yoga card games at home together, so why not on Valentine’s Day, too?

KYD: What is your hope/intention by releasing this product?

GS: My intention with these LOVE yoga cards is that they provide a springboard to talk to children about love and happiness, that we think about what love means to all of us and how it impacts our lives. 

KYD: How can heart-opener poses help children? What are the unique benefits of these asanas?

GS: These LOVE Yoga Cards for Kids include...

Want to raise a mindful boy? Picture books can help!

c/o Colin Lieu
Boys can master mindfulness, too, says Colin Lieu, author of, Phoenix's First: an introduction to mindful breathing.

This colorful, adorably illustrated read shares kid-friendly messages about how mindfulness can help us notice our energy and stress levels, and how to refocus our attention -- all through the tale of Phoenix, a young boy preparing for his piano recital. 

c/o Colin Lieu
With the help of his popo (Chinese for grandma), readers are introduced to self-soothing techniques and encouraged to participate alongside Phoenix, to overcome his stage fright.

A short breathing exercise is included in the story line, too! Makes a great gift!

Need a mood-lifter? Scented oils to the rescue!

c/o Arbonne
There's nothing like a whiff of lavender to soothe stress.

Kids can benefit from usage, as well as adults. Diffused or dabbed topically on skin, try Mother Nature's natural aromatic remedy after a tough day at school, a tantrum or as part of the nightly getting-ready-for-bedtime routine.

I've tested Arbonne Pure Essential Oils on my young ones and all three gave the product a thumb's up with smiles! The product is sustainably sourced and carefully extracted using steam distillation and cold-pressing techniques. It comes in scents including Lemon, Harmony, Eucalyptus, and Harmony Blend. My kids faves -- Lemon and Lavender :)

The Benefits of Becoming a Kids Yoga Teacher

When I began my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training I had no idea what I wanted to do with the education I received, as a matter of fact I doubted that I would even teach.

However, two days into the training...
