With all the hustle and bustle in life and stressed out parents, it makes sense that the result is stressed out kids. It’s important to take stock and ask, why are they stressed? There are so many things in this book that are common sense and I found myself agreeing and saying “yes!” to so many things but they weren’t things I could have come up with on my own.
A couple of things really struck a cord with me. First of all, I loved that she stressed the importance of free play! There is so much pressure on moms for their kids to know their abc’s and spell their name and do it before Tommy down the block! Sometimes in all the worry about making our kids successful in school and life, we forget to loosen up and have fun and just play! And play has it’s own educational, physical, emotional and mental rewards.
I am a mom that does not play enough with my kids. Guilty as charged! Why? Usually because I have a thousand things to do and honestly, because sometimes I just don’t want to! But that’s because I don’t want to do the same play they do day after day. I get tired of playing dolls with four year old Paige and video games with five year old Reed. But playing with my kids doesn’t mean doing those same old things every time. This book gave me new ideas and inspired me to make more of an effort in that area.
Another thing that really impacted me was the simple breathing techniques I taught to my four year old. She tends to have very emotional responses and still has tantrums.Read more ›
Lori Lite understands kids and parents, and is truly gifted in her ability in which she can identify how best to push through times of stress and anxiety. A few weeks ago, I had the chance to chat with Lori over the phone. While I had all my technology ready to go to record our hour long conversation, my technology failed me, so I’m here writing to you from my heart!
Oftentimes, parents get so lost in the minutia of parenting and not targeting areas that we can improve ourselves to make the childhood journey easier for our family dynamic. The book, Stress Free Kids navigates you through almost EVERY scenario you could possibly have with your kids. No rock is unturned, and I have felt compelled since purchasing the book to go back to it on a daily basis referencing it for guidance, support or just a great reminder of what I’m already trying to incorporate.
To seek this help from Lori’s writing puts me at ease immediately. Don’t you feel adrift sometimes – alone on a runaway ship? This book has become my anchor, as the CD’s have become that for my daughter.
Book Sections that Make Sense. The book is broken down into easy to read sections:
•Part 1: The Stress Connection
•Part 2: The ABC’s of Decreasing Stress
•Part 3: Stressful Situations, Solved
As you can see, Lori taps into all facets of stress related issues and helps you to understand them, and helps to relieve them in your family.Read more ›
