When parenting styles clash, children can be confused about how to act and what to expect in response to their action. Here are some tips to keep in mind.

School is back in session and we are hitting the ground running with recipes, crafts, and wellness content specifically created to help your family have the best year yet. While I’m sad to see the summer go, I’m excited to see how my preschooler will grow this school year.
I was lucky enough to speak with integrative pediatrician Dr. Elisa Song about the emerging area of research uncovering the connection between our gut microbiome and food allergies. As an allergy mom, I’m fascinated and full of hope for how this understanding may help my daughter in the decades to come. You can read all about it in our story, “The Gut-Microbiome Connection to Food Allergies” (p. 13.)
To further this theme of food allergy awareness, we’ve put together three delicious school lunch ideas that are both kid-friendly and free of the top nine common allergens. Whether your kiddo has an allergy or their lunch buddy does, these dishes are a great idea for any kid eating in close quarters with others. You can find them in our story, “School-Safe Lunches Kids Love” (p. 29.)
With Halloween creeping up on us, we got busy crafting the cutest little creatures you ever did see. I always attempt holiday crafts with my little ones, with varying outcomes of success, but these crafts are totally doable and absolutely adorable. Find them in “3 Eco Crafts to Celebrate the Spooky Season” (p. 22.)
