Navigating Emotions for Parents Ebook Review

Parenting can be really tough.  You have a child you are helping learn the ways of the world, and it's hard to know what the appropriate emotion should be in some situations.  I know there are times when Goose isn't listening or doing the exact thing that I told her not to do, that I have trouble breathing through the anger, and staying clam with her.



The eBook "Navigating Emotions for Parents", was written by Amy Phoenix, a mom of five and certified certified parent educator. Amy wrote this book to help parents learn ways to properly use their emotions around their children, helping the children feel safe and parents feel more confident in the way they are raising their children.



Through out this book, you will be able to look at 20 different situations.  Each situation, will give the normal reaction and then explain how you can replace that action with a more useful and loving emotion that children may respond to a little better.  Here is a list of the scenarios that the eBook will walk you through: (More info about each can be found here).

The Sit Down
The Sensation Balloon
The Simple Inquiry
The Satisfying Shout
The Special Notebook
The Silent Treatment
The Sensation Wave
The Secret Camera
The Safe Friend
The Soft Whisper
The Smooth Exit
The Silly Signal
The Serenade
The Speaking Notebook
The Speaking Walls
The Solution Rehearsal
The Struggle Surrender
The Smooth Pivot
The Stay and Listen
The Sixty Second Shift

Overall, I am really finding this eBook very helpful in going through my frustration and sometimes anger with Goose.  It has helped me remember to breath, and also to remember that she is only 3 years old.

If you find yourself, at times, loosing your cool with your kids, you should really check out this book.  Right now, it is available for $2.99 here: http://presenceparenting.com/navigating-emotions-ebook/

TheraVita Paradise Coconut Oil Review


Over the past two or so years, I have fallen in love with coconut oil  I've used it for pretty much everything from diaper rash to cooking.

Recently, I got to try the TheraVita Paradise Pure Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil that's found on Amazon.  It has a really great texture, smell, and taste.

It arrived on one of the hottest days of the year, and was completely melted.  I was really kind of worried that it has ruined it, but after a few hours in the fridge, everything was back to a solid once again.
TheraVita only uses Organic extra virgin coconut oil that is non GMO certified.  They also make sure that their product is free of any flavoring or artificial preservatives.

If you would like to check out TheraVita's Organic Coconut Oil, you can check it out on Amazon at the link below.

FunKins Cloth Napkins Review


When I was in school and would take my lunch to school, I would just stuff all my trash back in my bag and bring it home when I was done with lunch.  So, if your kid is the same way, why not give them something that will make them very popular that the lunch table; reusable cloth napkin designed for kids by Funkins!!!

Funkins are cloth napkins that are made to fit in lunch bags or to be used at home for snack or meal time.  They measure 13"x15" and are made of 100% cotton and low impact dyes.


Seriously, these prints could not get any more cute!  For my review Funkins sent me a pack of the girl prints for Goose, and I think I loved them more than Goose did.  There are tons of fun prints, and they are double sided.  It's almost too much cuteness for one lunch bag.  You can check out the full line of prints here.

Over all, I LOVE these napkins, and they are so easy to clean.  Once the cloth napkins get dirty, just throw them in the wash with all of your other cold water laundry (no you do not have to wash them like cloth diapers), dry, and reuse.  So simple!!!

If you are ready to check out Funkins for yourself, head on over to http://www.myfunkins.com/, and have a look around.  Each napkin is $10 (Canadian Dollar), but will last you for a LONG time and reduces the amount of waste in the landfills.

Review and Giveaway on Raw Organic Shea Unfiltered Shea Butter and a on Review 100% Pure Australian Tea Tree Oil


Recently, I got two really awesome products to review.  I have racked my brain on how to review these products separately, but cannot find a good way.  So, I decided to combined them and share a recipe that everyone could use.

First though, let me tell you a little about the products.


Tea Tree oil comes from the Melaleuca alternifolia or the melaleuca tree or tea tree.  These are bushy trees that grow in Australia.  The oil has many uses, I know I've used it a lot for cloth diapers and for my dog's skin condition.  You have to be very careful because tea tree oil can be toxic if taken orally.



Apothecary Extracts has gone above and beyond to make sure you are getting 100% pure tea tree oil at pharmaceutical grade.  They have had the oil tested by an independent lab so they know you are only getting the best.

Shea butter comes from a nut that grows on the Karite tree in Africa.  There are many benefits to your skin and hair since it contains so many vitamins.

The raw organic ivory shea butter that is sold by Beauty By Shea on Amazon, is a fair trade product that comes from Ghana.  It is doubled filtered, once in Ghana and once here in the US so they can make sure you get the finest product available.

Beauty By Shea is also letting me giveaway one pound of raw organic ivory shea butter.  You can find the giveaway widget below the recipe.

Acne Cream Recipe

What you will need:
2oz jar or larger
and 2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil (not pictured)

1. Get your kitchen scale out and measure out 2oz of shea butter.

2. Put in a mixing bowl and add 10-15 drops of tea tree oil.  

3. Add two tablespoons of coconut oil



4. Using an electric mixer, mix for 2-3 minutes or until well blended.

5. Spoon into a jar and you are done!  Just remember when using this, that a little goes a LONG way, so, don't put a huge glob on your face.


Overall, I have really enjoyed both products from Beauty by Shea and Apothecary extracts.  You can find them both on Amazon at the links listed below.

2-in-1 Coloring Book - Meet Lulu : Activity Book & Quality Kids Stylus Crayon Review


Meet Lulu and Painting with Lulu is a brand new concept where an app goes along with a physical coloring book.  I love this because Goose can play with the same coloring book both at home and while we are on the road and crayons would be too hard to keep up with.

The coloring book comes with your child's very own crayon shaped stylus. It works great with the app, and is very easy for the child to hold.

The app is very easy to use it.  You can search for a page you want by clicking on the Meet Lulu icon, or you can scan a QR code that is found on each page and the app will take you to that page.

The app is also able to connect to your Facebook account, so images your child creates, can be shared with your family and friends.

Here is a little video on the app...



Over all I love this app, and I can't wait to see some more from Lulu and her friends.

Painting with Lulu is available in the AppStore/Google Play/Amazon Appstore.  It's free (as of 8/15/14) so go check it out.  The coloring book "Meet Lulu" can be found on Amazon for $9.99 + shipping and handling if you are not a Prime member (as of 8/15/14), the coloring book features 32 coloring pages and the stylus.  Over all a pretty good deal.
