Great article to share, however these are my suggestions.
Take into account the personality of each child. What works for one kid may not work for the other. With one child you might need to rationalise with, the other you might need to be assertive.
Attended the international Conference and am so proud to be an Australian practitioner, the professionalism of the industry is up there with the rest of the world. They had a whole corridor of research papers and during the break, people just stood around and soaked up the information. I was there at every break. Loved it.
Presentations was from our roots before Christ to current climate and our challenges. They had the latest in Medicinal cannabis and the research is incredible that is being conducted here in Australia. The speakers were so knowledgeable, down to earth and passionate about their work, which was inspirational.
Only at a Naturopathic conference would they have a full urn of Lemon & Ginger tea lol.
Research indicates that most naturopaths, do what they do, is because they, love what they do. I thought I was the only one who loved my work LOL.
Needed to post this about kids, a powerful speech given by one of the speakers about parenting and of course each time she looked up I thought she was talking to me directly. I love Kahil Gibran, I remember reading his first poem and was hooked.
Like most of us, I often not only question my own parenting but also the professional advice I give. This poem speaks to my heart and resonates with my ethos of raising children. Children truly are the most precious gifts given to us. Love em up!
In my professional opinion Essential oils should Not be ingested, there are numerous articles about this and I cannot reiterate this in stronger terms. This is due to the concentrated potency of these oils and harm they can do long term. In this article the author gives tips of adding sources of these oils such as a fresh orange/lemon/mint/ lavender/ to a jug of water.
