Parents behaving badly!!

Posted on June 23, 2011 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Do you take out your frustrations on the ones you love?  

Today’s parent is under tremendous pressure. Not only do you need to bring home the pay check in a tight economy, build a business, meet deadlines and be the best parent in the world, you also are expected to be kind, politically correct, and even tempered.

Lets make Blue Monday "Turn it around" Monday!!

Posted on January 17, 2011 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

How are you doing on your intentions and resolutions for the New Year? 
 
The Monday on the third week into the New Year has been coined “Blue Monday”.
 
 It is known as the most depressing day of the year. Why? Because it is Monday, the weather is dreary, the days are darker and most people have dropped their New Year’s resolutions by this time.

Sometimes, it is hard to keep upbeat and positive when things are conspiring against you.

"Having it All" from the Inside Out

Posted on November 15, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Are you a busy mom (or dad) caught up in the relentlessness of life, day in and day out doing the same thing over and over again? 
 
Are you striving to “have it all, do it all and be it all” in your life?
 
“Having it all” is a term that gets passed around a lot these days. 
 
For a good portion of society, “Having it all” means owning the car, big screen TV, house and toys that we want. In essence, "all" are material possessions or “stuff” that we finance through hard work and dedication.

Are you Ashamed????

Posted on November 8, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Did you know that we are the most in debt, addicted, obese, and medicated generation in history? 

It is incredibly sad that North Americans have the most wealth but they are the most unhappy. Why is this?
 

I just had the opportunity to listen to Dr. Brene Brown talk on TED TV about shame and vulnerability.

Parent your Teens with Confidence - Get your FREE WEBINAR

Posted on July 8, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Are you ready to parent your teens with confidence?

Over my personal as well as professional life I have been on a quest to be a better parent.  From the birth of our son some 30 years ago to the tumultuous teen years of our youngest daughter, there have been many bumps on my parenting journey.  I have studied probably every parenting course known to man, I studied human growth and development throughout my nursing education and career, and I have not only parented my own children but have supported hundreds of parents in being the best that they can be.  In addition to all of this, I have had my own journey into myself and how to be the best person I could be.  Waking up to what I can do to change how I react to my teenagers behavior has been an amazing part of my life's journey.  All of this education, and life experience have been the fuel that has sparked the "Parent your Teens with Confidence" online program.  Check out my website http://www.destressrevolution.com/yourteens     to receive your free "Parent your Teens with Confidence" webinar.  This Free one hour webinar is designed to give you some ideas about how you can parent your teens differently yet effectively.

7 Reasons to Change ONE Habit at a time

Posted on June 9, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

 

 When you look at your whole life, do you feel you need a major overhaul or just need a minor tune up? 

 For those of you who feel a major overhaul is in order, the tendency is to try and fix your whole life all at once. For a variety of reasons those who approach changing more than one habit or circumstance at a time, are often unsuccessful in achieving their goals.

Summertime Connection and Fun

Posted on May 20, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Making this a reality for you Family

When you look ahead to summer, the knowledge that there will be less structure to your days can be very appealing. Imagining lazy days of sitting in the back yard or at the beach relaxing and enjoying the company of family and friends tends to dominate our thoughts. 

However, creating the opportunity for quality connections and fun this summer does not happen without some intention, action and planning along the way. 

What does your ideal summer look like?

After Mother's Day - How are you doing?

Posted on May 11, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Mother's Day is a beautiful day both.  It is a day to bask in our accomplishments as moms and to allow others to let us know how we have impacted their lives.  Whether your children are school age and love serving you breakfast in bed (I miss those days with the toast crumbs all around me) or if your children are grown and gone from the house the memories of your family can be so special. 

All Mother's have regrets.  There is always something that we could have done differently, should have done differently or would have done differently under different circumstances.  Regardless of what we wish we could change, the fruits of our labour (literally) are in front of us.  This past Mother's Day I felt quite melancholy.  All three of my children are moving on in their lives and I get less time with them.  There have been Mother's Days in the past that for me were not very pleasant, with words spoken and unspoken that did not relay the love and respect that was important at the time.  This is water under the bridge - the knowing that regardless of what happened then, I have the beautiful knowledge of how things are today. 

I have recorded a video of my After Mother's Day musings.  Please let me know your thoughts.  Take care and I will blog with you later.

Take Charge of Your Family Stress-Now

Posted on April 27, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

 

I am hosting a Webinar Series entitled “Take Charge of Your Family Stress” during the month of May.

 This is an opportunity to  help families feel less stress and more peace in their relationships with each other. 
 
I am committed to getting the message out there that "stress is taking its toll on men, women, children and the family unit and this has got to stop". 
 
Similar to Jamie Oliver’s food revolution, I am starting the Stress Revolution. WE need to take charge of family stress, here, now and always.
 
I can educate, I can motivate but I cannot navigate your individual family circumstances.  It is up to you to take charge of what you can.  </

3 Ways to "Go Back to School" Differently

Posted on September 2, 2009 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

As the children head back to school after a long summer off many parents welcome the change.  However, with this change comes the need to get back into the routine. There are dance classes, hockey practices, piano lessons, as well as the need for time for homework, getting to bed earlier, making healthy lunches, healthy dinners, and somehow in the midst of everything creating some quality family time.To top it all off, our work environments also pick up speed in September. Most people are back to work after summer vacation and the workplace hums with new ideas, projects, additional workload and other things. Are you ready for the change? How do you want this school year to be for your children? How do you want this time to be for you? Creating the balance you want can be challenging. All of these demands can lead to stress on the family,  on you and your relationships.

Summertime

Posted on August 4, 2009 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Summer is here and in full swing.  The urge to sit back, relax and do nothing is strong.  Yet I have many things that I need to DO.

I have to admit, I have never liked working in the summer.  It probably stems from when my kids were home and I found the summer was a time to connect with them, relax and enjoy the summertime pace.  Once school started back in September there was a lot of craziness in trying to balance their school, my work, extracurricular activities, driving them everywhere all the while trying to stay fit, healthy, relaxed and NICE.  Even now that my children are grown and out of the house, the relaxed pace of summer is nice.

7 Steps to Help You SLOW DOWN

Posted on May 30, 2009 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

I remember several years ago I had a flurry of speeding tickets. I owned a children’s clothing store which was starting to falter, I had three kids doing various activities, we were building a house, and I never seemed to have enough time to do anything.  I always seemed to be rushing from hither to yon and within a three week period of time, I received two speeding tickets and a warning. I failed to mention that at this time, I was also doing a lot of soul searching on how I was living my life as I WAS NOT HAPPY.
