Stuck for That Perfect Adult Stocking Stuffer? Need a Mommy’s Time Out After A Long Day At Home?

East Hanover, NJ, 2020-Dec-07 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Mommy’s Time Out Wine is the perfect stocking stuffer, and can be enjoyed by just about anyone on your adult stocking stuffer list. Mommy’s Time Out features four varieties including Mommy’s Time Out Pinot Grigio, Mommy’s Time Out Moscato, Mommy’s Time Out Delicious Red, and Mommy’s Time Out Delicious Pink. All are made from grapes grown in Italy and have wonderful fruity undertones. All the wines are fresh, fruity and well balanced, and are delicious for sipping with snacks or to complement a meal.

Being at Home during the Holidays has changed. Hasn’t it? It used to be the place where we all relaxed after a hard day at work. Not now. We may be home monitoring the virtual learning of our children. We might be working longer hours, because work is now remote, and we still have to monitor the virtual learning of our children. We might have to make them lunch because our kitchen is now the school cafeteria. The producers of Mommy’s Time Out Wine understand and have offered the following thoughts to make the holidays the most enjoyable time of the year.

Keep the Holiday’s Simple; Celebrate at Home with Mommy’s Time Out wine. Being a parent is difficult enough. Make Some Memories that will Last a Lifetime. New Year’s Day is a great day to make some family memories. Try taking a family photo with someone holding up a sign with the year. It’s also a great day to measure everyone against the door jam, so they can look back at their growth in years to come. Remind each other and your children of all the good things that happened, and teach your family how to appreciate what they have. One way to do this is to ask each family member to write down three things they were thankful for in 2020 and share them over dinner during the Holidays or on New Year’s Eve.

“No matter what stage you’re at when it comes to being a Mommy, it’s one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs there is. That’s why we believe Mommy deserves something special for herself now and then, with Mommy’s Time Out Wine.” says Mike Cincotta President of Selective Wine Estates, Inc.

Adults over the age of 21 should enjoy Mommy’s Time Out responsibly.

Meet Author of Love Centered Parenting At Dolphin Bookshop in Port Washington, March 12

Long Island resident, Maria Gavriel, author of Love Centered Parenting will be a special guest at a book signing and discussion hosted by The Dolphin Bookshop in Port Washington, NY on March 12, 2015 from 6:30-8pm. (located at 299 Main Street)

Port Washington, NY, USA (January 22, 2015) — Long Island resident, Maria Gavriel, author of Love Centered Parenting will be a special guest at a book signing and discussion hosted by The Dolphin Bookshop in Port Washington, NY on March 12, 2015 from 6:30-8pm. (located at 299 Main Street)

“The greatest expert on parenting is the parent, and the best support group for raising a child is community.”

That is the key message given by author Maria Gavriel in Love Centered Parenting: Contributing to Your Child’s Wellness by Living From The Heart and Cultivating Your Inner Wisdom (ISBN 978-1-45252-336-1, Balboa Publishing, 2014, $14.99, 190 pages, http://www.LoveCenteredParenting.com).

Part memoir and part parenting guide, Love Centered Parenting challenges parents to learn how to turn up the volume of their inner voice and rely on intuition and inner knowledge when deciding what is best for their child.

This top seller teaches parents how to wholly parent their children on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level. It empowers parents to listen to their intuition and reach out to a supportive community when making tough decisions.

Gavriel details her own parenting journey and how she embraced a holistic approach to raising her children. The author opens her book with a candid account of fertility challenges, pregnancy and birth while addressing common concerns such as diet and natural healing. Gavriel encourages all parents to listen to their intuition, whether or not they choose a holistic approach.

In Love Centered Parenting Gavriel relies heavily on her professional research skills as a paralegal for more than a decade to address such important issues as:

• The commercialization of children
• The harm done by media on child development
• The addictive effects of sugar on the child’s brain
• The risks of vaccinating children
• How to make your life free of toxins

“The true and best answers to the challenges of raising a child cannot be found on the internet or from the advice of doctors, counselors, child development experts but are readily available for parents who learn to listen to their inner knowledge and rely on their intuition,” stresses Gavriel. “Ultimately there is no single correct way to parent but a conscious, intuitive way unique to each parent and family. There is no one size fits all so we simply must align with what is right for us.”

Parents often feel lost and ambivalent when it comes to raising their children – whether they are a first time parent, or raising their first teenager, adds Gavriel, but parents who understand that they are innately capable of guiding their children will eventually trust themselves to parent from a place of wisdom.

The findings in Love Centered Parenting are based on 10 years of the author’s meticulous research via books, articles, medical research, internet resources, personal experience, community experience, and conferences, seminars and summits attended.

Kim John Payne, M.Ed. and author of two parenting books, says of Gavriel: “Maria’s path of discovery has achieved something very rare and precious. That she has been willing to share her wisdom with us is a priceless gift.”

More accolades for Love Centered Parenting come from Grady Harp, a Top 100 Amazon Hall of Fame Reviewer who says, “Maria Gavriel could very well become the now generation’s Dr Spock – and that is meant in the most laudatory way. This book is not only about parenting: this book is about life and the way we all should be living it.”

The book signing and discussion with Maria Gavriel is scheduled for March 12, 2015 from 6:30-8pm.

New iPad App Gets Children School-Ready

January 02, 2013, 4:21 am — /EPR NETWORK/ — Parents are preparing to send their children off to school for the first time. An Australian Mother of two has developed a way to give children entering school in this technological age a head start by creating an educational iPad app.

Rebecca Monument said that she, like most parents were aware that basic literacy skills developed in the home long before a child starts school.

“I created the app because I wanted to give my children the best of every possible opportunity,” said Ms Monument. “I was worried as my kids weren’t learning the correct way to write the alphabet, that they would have to re-learn it when they started school.”

After the application was released in October this year Ms Monument approached a local teacher for feedback. Ms Tanya Burton from Whitehouse Primary School in Australia agrees that Writeforschool is a resourceful learning tool for young children, and that the app that will complement the introduction of iPads into the prep classrooms in 2013.

“The application combines many features that other similar writing applications fail to deliver, like a variety of accents and a choice of the writing fonts taught in Australian schools” Ms Burton notes. “The large number of fonts back up what is taught in the school curriculum; it not only includes letters and numbers but blends of letters.”

The idea came to Ms Monument and she began developing the iPad application Writeforschool after her children, aged five and six began taking great interest in playing the games on her iPad.

“I thought if I could make educational game for my children, they could begin to learn to write in the cursive they are taught at their school the correct way,” Ms Monument explained. “My children love the app and its exciting graphics that can be completely personalised.”

Ms Monument hopes that her application is able to help as many young children as possible get a head start for this school year.

Learn how, for Valentines day and beyond, to transform a tantrum into a love fest, a happier, deeper love connection with your kids without giving up or giving in!

Valentines day was recently here and at this time of year we don’t usually like to focus on the negatives in our relationships with our loved ones, but at some point in time every parent usually says (or at least thinks) My kids are driving me crazy! or they are embarrassed, again, when in public, or with friends or family, their little (or not so little) one has a temper tantrum.

Wouldn’t it be great to feel cool, calm and collected and even loving when faced with a tantrum And what’s more, what if as a Valentines day present to you (and your kids) you could stop tantrums or even prevent them.

Here are 5 tips from Tantrums 911 Parenting expert, Valerie Jampolsky for parents to transform their kids tantrums into a deeper loving connection with their kids without “giving up” or “giving in”:

1. Put on Your Oxygen Mask First: Before saying anything to your child, take a couple deep breaths and give yourself some self-empathy in the moment (e.g., I’m really frustrated, I really need things to be easier) and remind yourself of your overall parenting goals of connection, trust, mutual giving, instead of resentment, judgment and rebellion (i.e., when you’re not looking, or as teenagers, even when you are looking!)

2. Be a Video Camera, Not a Prosecuting Attorney: Observe what your child is doing as if you are a video camera, without judgment or creating enemy images of your child.

3. Look Under the Tip of the Iceberg with an Open Heart: Lovingly ask questions (not interrogate) to find out what is the real underlying need that your child is trying to meet (i.e., don’t focus on the current strategy/behavior) until your child gets that you get their needs without judgment: Are you feeling (x) because you need (y)

4. Brainstorm Solutions Together: Ask if your child is willing to hear your needs and brainstorm solutions together to meet both your needs. For preverbal kids, invite fun alternatives to meet their needs that also meets your needs or sometimes, just connecting so they get that you get and support their needs is enough (more on how to do that in the Tantrums 911 App coming soon!).

5. Open Eyes, Open Arms Open Heart: A Preventative measure: Be there with open eyes, open arms and open heart, when your kids come to you and practice these same skills when there is no crisis (I.e., share their joy of meeting a need) (e.g., Wow! You built a big tower of blocks! Was that fun).
