How do you get your child to read when they don't want to?

At some point as parents we face this issue, especially as our children grow up. Often the situation results in frustration, argument and no results.

What to do?

I decided that the simple way to deal with it is to let go. What I did is I decided to show my son that I love to read. Children often learn from imitation and as parents we are their role models. We are the ones who set an example to our kids and the ones who model the right behaviour. Do you think that begging your child will make him read? I noticed that it gave me worst results. My son is the kind of kid that needs someone to sit with him, he won't read on his own, even though he is big now. He loves to have attention and quality time. I rather sit with him when I can and read with him rather than leave him by himself and not have him read.

Back to modeling the behaviour. Once a child see that you read regularly, at some point he might want to do it as well. For instance, I noticed that when my husband watches TV a lot, my son will do the same. Well that is a not a desired behaviour we want, but it is just an example to illustrate the power of imitation.

Last night my daughter asked me to read her a book before going to sleep, and almost every evening she wants me to read her a book. My daughter is still small and can't read by herself yet. My son was not fully asleep and after I finished reading to my daughter, he surprised me by expressing the desire to read a book. He sat there for half an hour and read, something he didn't do before. To my surprise he even read by himself. OOf! finally! A sigh of relief!

My opinion is that you just have to find a subtle gentle way to encourage children to read. Letting go and accepting a situation is the most powerful way that I found works well. It might sometimes take time, but it is worth while because it gets a quality result rather than a forced result. While reading this statement you might feel that you are being lenient, but not at all, it is rather being a better parent.

What do you think? What are methods you have tried and found worked for you? I would love to hear from you.

Do you ever listen to your thoughts? Do you know how powerful your thoughts are? 90% of our brain is subconscious and only 10% is which means that most of the time we are unaware of what we are thinking.
Do you know that the way you think affects the way you feel about yourself and others? Yes tremendously. People can feel how you perceive yourself. If you feel guilty, people will make you feel even guiltier because they catch up the vibe. They are not aware that they do, they do it naturally. Did it ever happen to you? How did you feel? Do you feel like blaming someone else for this feeling? If you do don't, instead see it as a way for the other person to send you an awareness message about how you feel inside.
With time I learned to be aware of these things and it is amazing how rapidly one catches up with these things once you practice.
If you want to be aware of your thoughts, I suggest that you sit down in a quite place, close your eyes, take 3 deep breathes and start to listen to your thoughts. You can also write them down in order to increase your awareness.
Our life is evolved around thoughts, but we as individuals have the power to control them.
Notice what kind of thoughts you have. Are they positive thoughts or negative ones? What do you focus on most? What subject do you think about most of the time?
Did you know that your thoughts can also affect your health? So far I didn't see scientific evidence of that as much as I know, but I did observe it and many people already observed it such as Louise Hay and Lise Bourbeau who also found ways of healing certain diseases.
I am a great believer in the Power of the mind. I believe that the mind is a very powerful tool and if we know how to use it we can use it very effectively in our life as long as we help other people and do good deeds.
Have you noticed your personal Power? Do you listen to your thoughts? What have you noticed? I would love to hear from you. You know it is nice to write blogs, but it is even more interesting when I get comments and see what is your take on things as well.

When I went to Las Vegas I met a dancer who gave us a tour at the backstage of a show. I was fascinated by this tour. This woman showed us the backstage and explained to us every detail. What I loved most is that she was so friendly, warm, pleasant and seemed very confident.

This woman was so passionate about what she has showed us and her love for dancing was so vivid and honest. I mean you can see when someone really loves what they do by the way they talk. You can feel someone enthusiasm right away and that is the vibration that attracts what you want into your life.

This dancer was very knowledgeable about her profession. I am so grateful and happy to have had the opportunity to see that.

It is something that I dreamt of all my life and having such an opportunity is a dream come true. I must admit that many of my dreams have come true this year because I started believing they can come true.

Again I realized the power of following your passion and how happy it can make a person and transmit this happiness to other people as well. When I left that theatre I felt such a peaceful warm feeling inside and I will never forget that dancer and the tour.

If she is reading this post, I wish her all the best and to continue to follow her passion because that is what makes her happy and gives her a good vibration and love which she automatically transmits to others. I also want to take the chance to thank her again for teaching me so much about how things go backstage. Thank you! :)

You wake up in the morning and the first thing you do is look in the mirror and start looking at all the parts of your body you wish you could change.
You look at the TV and you see all those beautiful perfect woman and say to yourself, well why don't I look like that? I have a cellulite here, a big tummy here, too much fat there. What if fashion was different? What if we would be shown women that are less than perfect? I am sure that we wouldn't be so complexed about how we look right?
Do you think that these women really look so perfect? After listening to many shows, observing these woman, reading about beauty, I realized especially after the Gwyneth Palttrow interview on the Oprah show that it is all an illusion. These woman work very hard to look this way and in most cases they do have plastic surgery. They are not completely natural. They get dressed in a way that will advantage their body, they have special makeup and a million ways to hide all the imperfections so we the viewers will be convinced that they are the image of perfection when in fact they are not, they are really just like all the rest of us. Without all the treatments, they have a belly, cellulite, hair and many other imperfections. All they did is find ways to hide it. Disappointed? Relieved?

It just reminds me of another fact, that even the barbies our children play with are made perfect. really, what kind of values does society teach us?

Women especially are often concerned about losing weight. We are always in search of the perfect diet. But what is really the perfect diet? Often times you think it is your genes, you were made this way and so forth. Is weight loss really about the physical or is it more? In my opinion, as long as you lack self-love, the longer the fat will stay with you. You see, your body is sending you a message about how you really feel about yourself and unless you heal that part of yourself, the weight will still stay on. How many women risk their health in order to lose weight? When you lose it, then you have to work hard to maintain it. What if I told you that there is another way, a psychological kind of way to solve that problem? How patient are you willing to be?

With time I have realized that when I take my time and lead a healthy style and concentrate on the things I love, the weight gradually disappears. When you grow as a person, when you feel good about yourself, your body doesn't need to keep that fat anymore. Look within yourself to find what it is that make you gain wight, and what is the lesson in that experience.

I believed in You when I had sorrow,
I had Faith in You when I was joyful,
I believed in Your Power,
Hugging every breath,
Honoring every small success,
Yearning for my Dream,
Watering the seed,
Growing every Day,
Noticing and accepting every lesson you put on my plate,
Finally the plant grew and grew and it became
A beautiful flower shining in all its glory,
Showing its hidden pattels to the world
Holding its head High above,
Climbing yet another step towards the ladder of .... Success.
By Galit.
As I was cooking today, I was thinking to myself how important it is to have constant faith in the Universe. Believing blindly and unconditionally that the universe will bring us what we so much long for.

Sometimes obstacles come in our way and often times we almost want to give up, but suddenly the Artist within us, our superior knowledge, tells us in her soft voice: keep on going because when you believe, when you persist, you will eventually reach your goal. Sounds easy right? Well it isn't always because the Ego wants us to give up, telling us we are dreamers, that what we want to achieve is impossible, and unrealistic.
This is the moment we are confronted with a choice.Who do we listen to? We can listen to the Ego, but if we do, are we going to accomplish our goal, our dream?You probably worked very hard already towards that goal and you are advancing, maybe not as fast as you would like and expect to , but small things have perhaps started to manifest.

Personally, I choose to hear my Artist because she knows what is best for me. Recently, I listened to her, and the universe has delivered my gift, a wonderful one. As I realized how powerful keeping the faith is, I cried from joy because I knew that not only did I receive a gift, but that I was very strong to be able to do that. The trust and the assurance you put out there is very important in achieving the success you want.
Did you have a similar experience and how did it affect your life?

Dream, Believe, and Act is what shall bring you your desire, your dreams and happiness. That is the reason why having faith no matter what happens is so important.

As WAHM we have a lot on our plate and sometimes it can get stressful and difficult. Please note that what I am writng here are my personal observations and not information that I have taken out from stastics. I only mean to express my personal opinion and observations in this blog. Please take into consideration that I am human, and not perfect. :) So are you!

What is your challenge as a work at home mom? My challenge is to balance work with family. As mothers we often have to make many sacrifices especially when we work at home because we have to please our family as well as please our customers.

Often we feel overwhelmed with the amount of work we have and struggle to find some time to care for ourselves. It is a choice we have made. We enjoy what we are doing yet some days we don,t know how to cope with our long endless to do list.

Many times I think to myself, well, how am I going to find the time to complete my business to do list while I also have to cook, clean etc.? Sometimes I wish I didn't have to do all that. I wish I could just focus on my work because I love it. So going back to what I said, I love what I do and yes I do wish I could drop the housework and do my work. I can spend hours writing and talking on the phone coaching people and helping others have a fulfilling life. After all it is all about being human. Sometimes we feel good and others time we feel bad, we have super duper times and yucky times, what can I say.

What is your challenge as a work at home mom?

Than a family member comes and tells you well do this and do that, well after all you are at home you have all the time in the world! And than you think to yourself: Really, only if you knew how long my to do list is, you would not say that. :)

I noticed that many people still don't understand that as WHAM, we really work, that our job is a legitimate job, but we just don't do it from an office and that it is like being in an office. The only difference is we do not leave the house. Most of us if not all of us do that in order to have more family time.

As I was thinking about the issue this morning, I started to think about the fact that since we have joined the workforce, we do more than men. We always have 2 jobs, taking care of the house and our job.

Did you notice that even though we are working, we are still doing our traditional roles. Some weekends I go to an indoor park with my family and who do you think takes care of the kids? Mostly the women. What I noticed is that most of the parents who run around and supervise their kids are the mothers. Who is the one who cooks supper in your house? Who is the one who is doing 90% of the housework? The question that I am pondering on is why is it that we are able to do that and some men still aren't doing so? Why do we do this? Does it mean we are stronger, more resistant? Anyway, today I had these thoughts. I just want to say that I don't mean to be judgemental of men, and I know that there are men out there that are doing their share, but there are still some who don't and I am wondering why?

Perhaps we have to be more firm. Perhaps we as women are not firm enough. If your partner will offer to do more, will you let him? Do you still feel that you must do those traditional roles? how do you feel about it? How do you cope?

Sometimes the universe gives us experiences to show us a part of ourselves that we still struggle with. In some instances it can be very painful, but the real strength is to look beyond it and see the lesson it is trying to teach us.

Every experience we live has a meaning and a purpose. Often times we tend to find blame in someone else or in exterior circumstances while we should look within ourselves. I believe we are solely responsible for our choices as well as its consequences.

Today the universe has given me such an experience and as a coach I immediately realized the message that it is trying to send me. Seeing it from this perspective has helped me deal with the situation more easily and accept it. You see I have made a choice not long ago about something and I know I had to follow my intuition in order to succeed in my endeavour, but I also knew that the choice I made had consequences which have manifested themselves recently. Nevertheless, I am fully aware of the fact that I am very much responsible for it and I choose to take full responsibility for it. I do not regret my choice because if I didn't make it, I wouldn't be where I am today and learn so much in a very short amount of time.

Once a coach told me that there is no right or wrong in whatever choice you make, you just do what you believe is right in that particular moment.

Sometimes, there are going to be unpleasant consequences we have to live with and you can decide if the path you have taken was beneficial to you or not, but nevertheless, you can always begin again no matter what happens because the universe always gives you a 2nd chance and a 3rd chance and so forth. Life is a learning process. We came into this world to grow as individuals.

Did you experience a similar situation and how did you handle it?

What do you do when suddenly out of no where your child starts crying and kicking his/her feet on the floor for a whole hour just because they wanted juice before their supper? The child knows very well that he shouldn't have juice before supper.

The pressure starts to take over you, you feel the adrenaline raising up, you feel that your ears are about to explode, but you know that no matter what, you must retain your sensitive nerves because you are the adult. Then you think: Oh my God! What can I do? How can I manage this and still keep my nerves from blowing? How can I resist this irritating noise? God! I feel helpless, but I must find a solution, after all I am the boss. Sound familiar?

I had this situation just yesterday with my daughter. At some point I decided to close the to my kitchen and go to my room to take a few big deep breathes so I can deal with the situation effectively and calmly. I came back and let her cry out a few more minutes and than she just stopped and we were best friends again. She went back to being the most adorable wonderful mommy's little girl.

I must say that this experience is pretty tiring for my ears especially that I am a person who is extremely sensitive to noise. Well this is all part of being a mummy. Sometimes we get hugs and kisses and funny comments and other times well...TANTRUMS!!

How do you cope with your child's tantrums? I would love to hear your experience. You are welcome to leave comments in the box below. go to this website and sign up for my free offer.
