Spirituality for Kids

I've had a few parents ask me recently how to help their children develop their spiritual essence. Spirituality for kids is really about teaching them who they are and reminding them daily of their connection to something greater than themselves.

Here are some activities you can do together:

• Get a pack of "angel cards"-they have words like Happiness, Compassion, Love and Friendship on them-and have your kids pick one to focus on each day.

• Teach your children how to set an intention for the day, starting with "I intend for…" followed by the details of what they want to have happen.

• Create a Gratitude wall or hang a whiteboard in their rooms and at the end of each day, have them write three things they are grateful for.

• Help your kids create fun vision boards for their rooms using words, photos, magazine pictures, etc. It should feel good to look at the board and imagine what might happen.

Oprah's Earth Day Event...

Actress Julia Roberts and Author Sophie Uliano join Oprah!

Julia Roberts Earth Day Tips:

Oprah's good friend Julia Roberts joined the show to help talk about how you can make small differences in your home that will make a big impact on the earth. Julia's thinking about the environment grew when she had her 3 children; she began to see her responsibility in a different way. Children growing up now will have an enlightenment of the world and how to take care of it, according to Julia and Oprah's conversation. Julia noticed how much food is wasted with small children and she began composting; noting that every little bit helps.

The Organic Nanny has done all her homework and your family gets to reap the rewards.

''No to pesticides, no to toxic words, yes to wholesome foods, yes to respectful, loving care and kindness.

How can anyone go wrong following such advice from the Organic Nanny ?''
Ingrid E. Newkirk
founder, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

As a "Mary Poppins for the new millennium," I have such a passion for helping parents and giving them the information they need to keep their kids healthy and strong. And, as they pass knowledge on to their children, I believe they will be raising a generation that is calmer, happier, smarter, more eco-conscious, and more compassionate than those who preceded them. The ability to create this positive change is natural to a parent's intuition-Barbara Rodriguez''The Organic Nanny''
