Have You Tried Counting Sheep?

By Janice Sioui Director of Wellness We’ve all been there; tossing and turning, desperately trying to fall asleep or get back to sleep while brewing or stewing about something we can’t change.  So what have you tried?  My husband swears by his pillow, my daughter her fan…are there regular behaviors you can adopt to get the most out of your zzzs?

Talk to Strangers…please?

“Don’t cross the road without looking both ways”, “Don’t talk with your mouth full”, and above all else, “Don’t talk to strangers.” The first two teachings still make sense when it comes to safety and etiquette; however telling kids of all ages not to talk to strangers anymore is no longer black and white. After talking to many parents, their obvious concern is safety. I believe the greater concerns for most parents are when [...]

Ever heard anybody recite the line “People don’t change?”

Ever heard anybody recite the line “People don’t change?” Kind of like the line when someone says you get what you pay for! When I hear these lines, I immediately start to wonder if human beings feel that way due to a fixed mindset from bad experiences or disappointment. Making generalizations about all people or all situations is a losing proposition. We all have the capacity to change. The problem is seeking or needing [...]

A Participation Trophy that Matters

Bashing participation trophies has become a time-honored tradition. It allegedly leads to entitlement and hides our kids and future generations from the harsh realities of the real world. Full-disclosure. I am a parent of three children, long-time coach for 15 years in many sports while raising three kids and the thought of participation trophies was unfathomable to me…up until now. At MindsetGo, we proudly provide participation trophies and not only do they take on [...]

Talking Out Of School

Your child may be amongst the smartest or best looking in the room, but can they successfully communicate their ideas and thoughts successfully with confidence and purpose? With teenagers relying on texting and social media as their primary methods to communicate, kids are struggling to be confident and effective face-to-face communicators. Parents typically reinforce self-esteem through grades, overall academic performance or extra-curricular achievements. However, those measuring sticks only temporarily and superficially allow students to [...]
