Fighting Parents Don’t Give Kids A Fighting Chance

kids

Slamming doors. Cursing. Screaming. Stony silences. Constant criticizing.  Throw in threats of suicide. This out of control 13 year old behavior, is unfortunately the behavior of many parents.

And if this is you, you need to know your kids are taking it all in. They feel the tension when the two of you are smoldering. They cringe when their parents argue about them. They become clingy when one parent threatens to leave. They retreat emotionally as the tension rises. Teachers notice something’s wrong even thought parents don’t. A seven-year study published in Child Development in 2012 showed that Kindergarteners whose parents fought with each other frequently and harshly were more likely to grow into emotionally insecure older children who struggled with depression, anxiety and behavior issues by 7th grade.

Salmon Dating: Stop Swimming Upstream And Find Your True Mate

salmon

A mature female salmon’s purpose is to make it to her natal river to lay her eggs and get them fertilized by a male before she dies.  Kind of macabre, but having a clear purpose and goal is what’s important here.  The female salmon’s journey starts in the salt-water ocean.

When she is ready to spawn, she swims thousands of miles to fresh water rivers and streams.  On her journey she is met with poachers, sport fishermen who catch and release, fishermen who catch for profit, bears, birds of prey, wolves, and other voraciously hungry mammals. 

Part of her journey also includes jumping upstream through a strong waterfall to get up to her natal river or stream.  Against all odds, many females make it to their natal river to spawn. Continue reading

The Real Intent of Mother’s Day

Anna_jarvis

I have always associated “Mothers Day” as a Hallmark holiday, and thus have truly resented it. And in recent years, its also become a time when I am inundated with requests to write articles.

As someone who runs my own editorial calendar for www.intentblog.com , I know there is higher search, sponsorship opportunities, and popularity on this theme so strategically it’s a good idea for a media platform to honor moms this week.

So here I am writing a post, and created a Flipagram, even though I have issues against doing it. Continue reading

From Intent.com: Listening

Intent1

 

“You’re short on ears and long on mouth.”
-John Wayne

We all know how possible it is to be completely surrounded by people and still feel alone.
Physical proximity counts for a lot less if that presence isn’t felt through knowing and being known. At the same time, our brains are receiving and processing information lightning fast. Out attentions dart from a person to our phone to the car driving by to the sound we heard behind us. Listening takes focus. And because of that, listening can be one of the best and easiest ways to convey that you care. Continue reading

Living with Intent: 6 Steps to Living a Healthier, More Joyful & Purposeful Life

MallikaChopra

About two years ago, I approached my father (Deepak Chopra) with a confession. I told him I was generally exhausted, over caffeinated and my sugar addiction was out of control.  I realized I was overscheduled trying to balance my role as a wife, mom, and entrepreneur with Intent.com, my start-up social media company. I felt bloated and had a lot of body pain. I hadn’t been meditating or exercising much, and at night I was having trouble sleeping. My father looked shell shocked, and it took a few moments for him to transition from concerned father to Deepak Chopra, the person that thousands go to for health advice. Continue reading
