    Girls and Anxiety | Developing Emotional Resiliency

    Girls and Anxiety | Developing Emotional Resiliency

    More teens than ever (especially girls) are experiencing symptoms of anxiety. As a society our goal should not be to get rid of a child’s anxiety or the experiences that create fear; instead we should be teaching them how to tolerate ALL of their feelings and to be more resilient. It is possible to understand how fear operates in the physical, emotional and spiritual realms and what actions can help strengthen our inner calm and help children to thrive.

    The Power of Words, Building an Emotional Vocabulary

    The Power of Words, Building an Emotional Vocabulary

    “You never … [pick up your clothes].”

    “You make me … [furious].”

    How many times a day do you find yourself saying or thinking these kinds of things about your kids? Or these kinds of things about yourself:
    “I should … [be folding the piles of laundry right now].”
    “I have to … [drive soccer carpool, again].”



    These are examples of what communication experts call dis-empowering language: negative thoughts or words we may take for granted as part of our everyday vocabulary. It’s a type of language that leave us feeling more like pawns in someone else’s game, rather than masters of our own destiny. Often when we use dis-empowering language, it’s a direct reflection of dis-empowered feelings we may have, which commonly arise under stress. Although the statements above might seem harmless, dis-empowering language can have a profound effect on the feelings and behaviors of our children and ourselves.

    Did you notice a slight loss of energy or increased discomfort while reading the phrases above? The way we express ourselves – our choice of words and our tone of voice – creates energy that either gives power or takes power away.

    “When we speak,” “We exercise the power of language to transform reality.”
    Because of its power to influence our beliefs, dis-empowering language can undermine our parenting goals. This happens because what we focus on determines most of what we see. For example, when a parent says to a child, “You’re always uncooperative,” parent and child log the comments as “data.” With repetition, this cycle of behavior and response reinforces in our mind and the child’s the belief that she’s uncooperative, although that is far from our goal.

    Join me and my guest Ciara Sullivan on an enlightening conversation on the power of language. Ciara has an educational background in Applied Psychology with a focus on the fields of Cognitive Behavioral and Positive Psychology, as well as earning certifications in Clinical Hypnotherapy (C.Ht) and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). She’s also picked up many other tools along the way which have helped her to personally reach new levels of comfort and happiness, and have allowed her the wonderful opportunity to embrace her passion and bring both comfort and happiness to those she works with.

    Navigating the Mother Daughter Relationship with Karen Anderson

    Navigating the Mother Daughter Relationship with Karen Anderson

    When mothers are willing to take a compassionate and honest look at their relationship with their own mothers, it creates awareness, around dysfunctional patterns that may have been passed down. Without that awareness, women will often parent “in resistance” to the way they themselves were mothered (“I will never treat my daughter the way my mother treated me,” or “I’m doing the opposite of what my mother did”), and this can have unintended consequences. Being willing to look within, understand, honor ourselves and our experiences is one of the most powerful things we can do. Modeling that process for our daughters is critical to raising them to be powerful girls.
