Creative Journal for Parents- cover (95350 bytes)

"As a mother,  I have been to the depths and also to the ecstatic heights of what parenting has to offer. I have shared parenthood as half of a couple, been a single parent, and been the parent of stepchildren in a blended family. Today, as a grandparent, I can look back with the wisdom that only age and experience can bring and share this tool - "The Creative Journal For Parents." May your journey into parenting bring you as much life and love as it has me. You deserve the best . And so do your children and their children and all the children after them." 

This excellent book covers getting yourself ready and preparing  your world within your home ready to become a parent. Then welcoming a child into your life, whether by birth. adoption, or blending families and step-parenting. Then growing with your child in the new nuclear family, and parenting in the teen years and beyond.

Lucia Capacchione has developed an innovative method for achieving an understanding of how you were parented and how you want to parent. Using her Creative Journal process will help you work toward a parenting style that embraces communication, acceptance and love.

Aromatherapy - helps Kids too

I have used Young Living Essential Oils for years. 

Young Living Essential Oils are powerful. Dr.Lucia Capacchione, PH.D. Pioneer Expressive Arts Therapist, Art Therapy book author and good friend of mine, stopped by with 2 of her grandsons. One felt very sick to his stomach so I put 1 drop of Peppermint oil in a glass of water, he drank it and in less than 5 minutes he felt fine. 

Another good friend came over, a bit agitated about his recent divorce, I put 2 drops of our blend "Peace & Calming" on this 250 pound guy's neck, and he put 1 drop under his nose, and within 10 minutes- he was laid back and chilled out - saying "Golly, I think there is something to these oils!" 

Believe me, this works great on hard-to-manage and hyperactive kids too, as a matter of fact, many parents have used our blend Peace & Calming with our supplement "Mineral Essence" as an alternative to Ritalin.
