That it makes you aware of things I never thought about my role as a parent, that it's easy to understand and gives me the chance to listen to experts, I would never have a chance to see in person, in the convenience of my own home at almost any time. THANK YOU!
Ivonne Justo-Nardone, Merida, Yucata, Mexico.

I appreciated the variety of speakers and topics and also that we could send in questions/comments live. I also appreciated the large population that the Show seemed to reach--different countries, cultures, backgrounds, etc. It was comforting to know that there are others out there -- everywhere -- the struggle with the same parenting issues that I do.
Amy, Winston Salem, USA

The varied topics, from personal growth to dealing directly with children. Parenting is so much more than just dealing with your children...you need to take care of yourself as well. The additional thing I need to mention is the convenience of the replays. I would not have gotten as much from this show if I did not have the access to the replays.
April Arrington, Tallahassee, USA

 
 

I know from my own experience that no matter where you are at now, a family life full of ease and joy is not only possible, it is your birthright!

My mission is to empower parents to become or remain the great parent they want to be, by connecting them to the right parenting expert for their unique situation. I believe that all parents need more information to parent well, whether that information is current knowledge on brain research and its implications for parenting, or cyber issues such as bullying or just how to connect with their kids and deal with the mundane but important challenges like getting their kids to sleep.

That’s why I’ve hand-picked the top experts on the planet to give you the information you need. Best of all, it is all available for free and from the comfort of your own home!

Sound great?

All you have to do is enter your name and email above, and you are on your way to being the great parent you vowed to be when your baby was born.

Hope to “see” you on the calls!

Neale Donald Walsch is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. With an early interest in religion and a deeply felt connection to spirituality, Neale spent the majority of his life thriving professionally, yet searching for spiritual meaning before beginning his now famous conversation with God. His With God series of books has been translated into 37 languages, touching millions of lives and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives.

In addition to authoring the renowned With God series, Neale has published 16 other works, as well as a number of video and audio programs. Available throughout the world, each of the CwG dialogue books has made the New York Times Bestseller list, Conversations with God-Book 1 occupying that list for over two and half years.

The With God Series has redefined God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. In order to deal with the enormous response to his writings, Neale created the Conversations with God Foundation, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to inspiring the world to help itself move from violence to peace, from confusion to clarity, and from anger to love.

Neale's work has taken him from the steps of Macchu Picchu in Peru to the steps of the Shinto shrines of Japan, from Red Square in Moscow to St. Peters Square in Vatican City to Tiananmen Square in China. And everywhere he has gone-from South Africa to Norway, Croatia to The Netherlands, the streets of Zurich to the streets of Seoul, Neale has found a hunger among the people to find a new way to live, at last, in peace and harmony, and he has sought to bring people a new understanding of life and of God which would allow them to experience that.

That reasoning is one of the key principles behind the Anat Baniel Method.

According to Anat Baniel, clinical psychologist and creator of the method, our brain functions in one of two modes – learning or non-learning. Most of us only use our non-learning mode. We don’t think about how we walk or pick up a glass; we just do it. But in order to be productive, we need to force our brains to stop giving us the same-old, same-old. We need to ask it to give us a different and better pattern.

Donna Gates’ mission is to change the way the world eats. Over the past 25 years, Donna has become one of the most loved and respected authorities in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition, enjoying a worldwide reputation as an expert in candida, adrenal fatigue, autism, autoimmune diseases, weight loss and anti-aging.

Frustrated with her own health issues and lack of relief from conventional medicine, Donna embarked on a long course of study into many different healing concepts, including ancient Chinese medicine, macrobiotics, natural hygiene, raw foods and mega-supplement therapy. Incorporating the most beneficial components of each concept into her own system of health and healing, Body Ecology™.

She is the author of The Body Ecology Diet, a revolutionary system of healing that was created by Donna in response to the major deficiencies she saw in medicine and the commonplace approach to treating symptoms while ignoring root causes and the first of its kind. Filling the void, the diet-- sugar-free, gluten-free, and probiotic rich--was adopted by doctors and health practitioners alike, who recommend it to their patients and clients. Donna has certified hundreds of “Body Ecologists”, who passionately spread her teachings throughout the U.S., Canada, England, Australia and New Zealand.

Donna's groundbreaking work has been instrumental in transforming the natural foods industry. While the decision by the FDA to replace dangerous, artificial sweeteners from diet beverages with the safer Reb A substitute is recent, it was Donna who first introduced the white stevia/Reb A to the U.S. in 1994. Her very successful grassroots movement blossomed to tens of thousands enjoying the new sweetener and after three years it was approved as a “dietary supplement”, becoming a common item in every health food store in America. Donna’s cookbook, Stevia: Cooking with Nature’s Calorie-Free Sweetener (Avery) was the first of its kind. The next five years she dedicated to educating on the value of coconut oil which was demonized as a dangerous fat. Her dedication spurred new research and now coconut oil is promoted by holistic doctors and sold nationwide. Donna then focused on fermented foods and reintroduced milk Kefir to the U.S. Her innovation continued with “young coconut water kefir”, a fermented drink touted by medical doctors for healing the digestive tract and treating acid reflux.

As a key figure in the autism movement, Donna works with top doctors in the field who view her diet as instrumental in changing the theory behind and treatment of the disorder. She founded Body Ecology Diet Recovering Our Kids (BEDROK), an active online community of over 2,000 parents, many of who have seen their children in full recovery. www.bedrokcommunity.org

Over the past two years, the raw food movement’s knowledge-hungry crowd has turned to Body Ecology for answers to why the raw diet doesn’t always work. David Wolfe, the movement's de-facto leader, surveyed his followers and found 80% requesting Donna to speak at his popular Longevity Conference, which draw over 1,600 participants bi-annually.

Her eagerly anticipated book, The Baby Boomer Diet, (Hay House, October, 2011), is expected to revolutionize the way we think about aging.

Parenting is tough, but it isn’t complicated. From tantrums to texting, the secret of happy parenting is a close relationship with your child. Thousands of research studies over the past four decades show us exactly what kids need to turn out great:

Love (nurturing, respect, empathy, cherishing)

and

High -- but age-appropriate -- expectations.

As both a mom and a Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Laura Markham sounds two clear themes in her advice to parents. The first is that when we feel good, we're better parents. Quite simply, we can only give what we have inside. That's why her daily parenting inspiration emails are about how to take better care of ourselves and manage our own emotions.

Her other theme is that parenting effectively always depends on our connection to our kids. Without that connection, we have little influence ("My kids won't listen!") and, frankly, parenting becomes an exhausting, thankless task.

Deepening our connection with our kids and keeping it strong as they grow is the work of parenting. Of course kids need guidance, but that only sticks if the connection is there to support our teaching.
