Soulful Parents are visionaries. They “see” their teens and indeed the world in
a different way from most parents. Of course “seeing” differently changes what
they “see” about their teens and therefore what they will do buy adderall when it comes to
parenting their teens. Their vision involves five critical perspectives.
First, Soulful Parents are relational. They “see” their teen not as a problem to
be managed or an accident waiting to happen but as a gift, a mystery, to be
enjoyed and appreciated and order adderall online. They know that their greatest asset with their teen
is not the contingencies they control or their leverage but the power of their
relationship with their adolescent. They never let circumstances trump the
relationship. Soulful Parenting endures through every circumstance. Continue reading
When I was in college, I buy adderall online , thirty years ago, I remember Jimmy Marson taking speed so that he could stay up all night to study. Ill advised but it worked better than coffee.
Today it is estimated that 30% of college students have used one of the prescription psychostimulants to assist them in studying. It’s called cognitive enhancement or neuroenhancement.
The longer a kid stays in college the more likely they are to order adderall. Over half of upperclassmen admit to using these pharmaceuticals to help them academically. By the way, only 4% of students are diagnosed as having Attention Deficit Disorder for which the meds are indicated and appropriately prescribed. Continue reading
It’s that time of year – graduation. Many Soulful Parents have kids who are graduating from high school and some from college. If you are one of those parents or even if you are for now only anticipating this eventuality I would encourage you to consider the formula for your young person’s life success.
Life success can be defined in any number of ways but for the Soulful Parent it must include your young person living with intention and purpose. Without meaning all accomplishments are empty. With meaning accomplishment of any sort is, by definition, success.
As kids mature their life is much less structured. Parents provide structure for preschool kids and then, when your kids are old enough for school, the schools have an order that the student must follow to successfully matriculate. As your young person ages the order is less defined for them and they must buy adderall provide more of their own structure. Continue reading
“As you learn better, you do better buy adderall” comes from the book Drop the Rock: Removing Character Defects. This book is an explanation and expansion of the sixth and seventh step of the twelve-step program that serves as the foundation of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and many other recovery programs. There is great wisdom in the twelve-step program in general but there is particular wisdom in this simple instruction. And it can be helpful to apply this wisdom to parenting teens. Continue reading
Lately there has been a flurry of activity in our communities as we try to deal with bullying. Much of the focus has been on the behavioral and psychological remedies for bullying. Even in my newsletters I have written about actions that can be taken to empower kids and address bullies. And this emphasis on the psychological/behavioral approach is particularly important in addressing bullying in the short-term. But there is another more profound level of intervention, the spiritual. Addressing bullying at the spiritual level results in life-long change.
Spirituality is most obvious in one’s ability and willingness to reflect on self and on life. Reflection or contemplation is what separates humans from animals. It’s our spiritual nature. Some naturally reflect more than others. The relative depth of one’s reflection may be partially genetic but is also most certainly learned and can be “awakened.” Continue reading
Recently, here in central Indiana, we have had a rash of school bullying incidents resulting in abundant media coverage. Of course, the first response to these situations is always, “How can we prevent this from happening?” Indeed, this is an important first question. Generally speaking the answer involves a combination of parents, school officials and students committed to changing the culture of a community and an organization so that bullying is simply not tolerated by anyone.
But the other day I was asked another important question that is seldom considered, “Can we immunize our kids so that they aren’t as vulnerable to bullying?” Great question! And the answer is, “Yes, we can.” It takes an intentional effort to educate our young ones about what they are dealing with and arming them with tools to better cope. Continue reading

Soulful Parenting is positive parenting. Anyone who has been exposed to Soulful Parenting for very long has heard how strong the tendency is for parents and teachers to be critical with their kids as opposed to being positive and reinforcing.
For example, the data suggests that parents criticize ten times more than they positively reinforce. Besides being demoralizing to our kids and discouraging of healthy relationships, the core of Soulful Parenting, we also now know that by focusing on the criticizing the mistakes and failures we are inhibiting their ability to learn.
