The Attitude Breathing Tool is one of the many free resources the Institute of HeartMath has available for parents and caregivers. Another resource parents, caregivers and educators also will find useful is the HeartMath My Kids! Facebook page. This online resource offers free games, tips and age-appropriate techniques for teaching children how to shift to the qualities of the heart and build coherence.

HeartMath has incorporated its more than two decades of research into practical solutions that parents and others can employ as they face today’s challenges. Thousands of people have used these solutions and the principles of heart-based living to improve their lives and those of friends and family.

Time-honored Parenting Tip

Although being a parent is hard at times, parents and others who care for children have found that when they connect with qualities like love, care, compassion and appreciation, being a parent is heartening experiences.

As we celebrate mothers everywhere on Mothers Day, may all their children marvel at and strive to achieve their great capacity for boundless love!

Happy Mothers Day

"Protect your heart because out of it spring the issues of life." That is what came to mind as I read this about the heart. To be in touch with our own heart can make us more sensitive to the hearts of others. And little children, I think, have the best hearts. As parents we can learn so much from our children/grandchildren and other peoples children.We have to 'listen' and be open to what they are saying out loud and even in their silences. Open to their hearts.
