In the Trenches By Misse Betts, Lead Blogger

?#@*&%! I have come to realize that I don’t need a mirror with me to see how I express myself. I have three mirrors that started being my reflection from the time they could hold up their heads. Your children start to mimic your facial expressions as babies and from there it just evolves. I’m sure you’ve all experienced that moment when something comes out of your child’s mouth that sounds just like you. Sometimes it’s funny, like the time I asked my toddler to do something. She said no. I asked again. She said no. I asked a third time and she said, “The conversation ends when I say no!” This famous mom line came back to haunt me by a 2 year-old! Sometimes it’s not quite as adorable: our family went out to dinner last week. We were marking the end of our oldest child’s first college hockey season. One that ended in a loss, but overall was a great season and the mood was pleasant. I say that because of what happened when it came time to order. The youngest child ordered a hamburger. The waiter asked her if she

Not one little slip of the tongue, it was a string of angry outbursts. “WHOA! Little lady! Where is that coming from?!” I managed. She told me it was a good word to use when you’re frustrated. She then said a different word in a frustrated tone. Another one she may have heard from me, along with that other word. To his credit, the waiter didn’t seem fazed at all by the cursing preschooler but he did receive an apology from said preschooler after we explained that it is not actually okay to curse out the waiter if they don’t have something you want. This was one of those not-so-adorable copycat moments. All is not lost however! My ‘frustrated mom language’ isn’t the only thing my kids

A Celebration of ‘Real Beauty’ Almost all women claim to have negative thoughts about their bodies daily and are plagued with feelings of guilt, inadequacy, stress and disease. A Celebration of Real Beauty, created in 2010 by Amy Walker, is here to combat negative ways of thinking about beauty, provides inspiration and resources to assist women and girls to discover their gifts and attributes that make them uniquely

beautiful. “I received emails and calls about the ‘real beauty’ movement we had created” stated Walker, “some coming from as far as Korea, the UK and Australia. I loved watching the women come alive through the course of the night.” This year, A Celebration of Real Beauty wants to teach everyone how negative selfimage has nothing to do with the body. The event will include a ‘Real Fashion’ Runway, cooking segments, fitness information, a Natural Photo Shoot, music, and guest speakers. It will be held on March 9 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at The Barn at Thanksgiving Point, 3501 N. Thanksgiving Point Way in Lehi. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased online at www.acelebrationofrealbeauty.com or at the venue on the day of the event.

Birds of a Feather Sing Together Tracy Aviary & Imagination Place are joining together to celebrate the arrival of budding flowers, warmer weather and outdoor entertainment with the songs of spring – just in time for Sing With Your Child month. This event will be held at the Tracy Aviary, 589 E. 1300 South in Sugar House, on March 23 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Record-Breaking Generosity On Friday, March 22, Utahns will have a new opportunity to prove their record-breaking generosity by contributing to their favorite nonprofit organizations and schools during the state’s first 24 hour day of giving, called Love UT Give UT. Love UT Give UT helps nonprofits and schools showcase their work and introduce their organizations to new and potential donors. More than 250 schools and nonprofit organizations have already created pages on the giving platform, www.loveutgiveut.org. “Utahns lead the nation for charitable giving. This year we are launching an innovative online event that can help Utahns learn about and give to hundreds of nonprofit organizations and schools across the state,” explained Fraser Nelson, executive director of the Community Foundation of Utah. “The Community Foundation is dedicated to bringing innovative ways to expand philanthropy in our state, and this is a program whose time has come.” Love UT Give UT will offer incentives to encourage participation and add a sense of friendly competition. The organizations that receive the most number of donors will receive additional grants. First prize is $5,000, second is $2,500 and third place is $1,000.

Teen Scene By Sue LeBreton

Moms and Sons Ways to Bond with Your Boy through the Tween and Teen Years “My life sucks and I wish I was dead,” cried my 11 year-old son. The words sliced through my heart as I tried to console him. My mommy radar went into full alert at such language. This can be a sign of depression and I knew immediately I needed to start helping him transition from tween to teen as the hormonal influences begin early. In my home when you say you wish you were dead, you get a quick trip to a psychologist. That resulted in the psychologist reassuring me that my son didn’t truly want to be dead, he wanted his problems – like diabetes – to be dead and gone. He told me that my son’s issue is semantics, not being able to articulate what is wrong when he has a nasty day. That episode sent me searching for additional ways to increase my connection with my son. I want him to feel comfortable telling me the good, the bad or the ugly. According to author and counselor Michael Riera, Ph.D, in his book, Staying Connected to Your Teenager, “the way to establish and maintain this connection is not as straightforward as the connections made during childhood. Now much is dependent on the creativity and perseverance of parents.” Here are tips from the teen trenches to help you preserve and strengthen your bond with your son as he moves through this phase: Just keep talking. These words of wisdom from Judie Brokenshire-Kavanagh, mom to a 14 year-old and a 12 year-old. “The difference is that one clams up and pretends not to listen, although the evidence proves otherwise, and my younger son and I talk about everything.” Movies. Go on a movie “date” to a movie of his choice. Be enthusiastic and receptive even if it is a genre you think you detest. This will give you a window into what he enjoys and if you go out for a meal or treat afterwards you have an obvious topic for conversation. If your son does not want to be seen in public with you, persevere: instead, try movies at 10 UTAHFAMILY.COM MARCH 2013

home. Keep hugging. And horsing around, suggests Christine Parente deSoto, mom of four. “I persisted and kept hugging my kids whether they wanted it or not. Sometimes, I would even jump on them or sit on them as a way of bringing humor into it instead of making the hug something they had to do.” Move and talk. Whether you are walking the dog together or riding in the car, the parallel interaction seems to open the communication channels more easily than face to face. Hear him. “Probe only for clarification or more detail and do not express your opinion unless he asks or he will stop talking. Let him tell you stories about his friends and the banter on Facebook,” advises Caroline Trebilcock, mom of two teenage boys. Get off the bleachers. Although it is wonderful to be a cheerleader for your son, “get out there and do your own activity as well. You will be setting a good example of lifelong fitness and fun,” says Parente deSoto. Down the road your son may even want to join you. Share his music. “Have him take you through the music he likes. Ask questions about what he enjoys about the different styles of music. You may be surprised at what you learn about your teen,” says Trebilcock. Do not censure the conversation. “When 11 year-old girls are sexting my son, there is nothing that is off limits. I need to keep him safe,” says Brokenshire-Kavanagh. Open your home. Trebilcock often hosts gatherings for her older son, respecting what teen boys need to do. “Let him invite his

friends over, feed them, let them be loud and horse around.” Share his interests. Get involved in what has captivated him. You do not need to immerse yourself, just dip your toe into his area of interest. Who knows what new activities you might enjoy? Remember boys are different from girls. “Boys do not like when you talk in code. Say what you mean, mean what you say,” asserts Trebilcock. Respect. Respect what is important to him, even if you see it as a passing fancy. Try to remember when you were a teen and what felt vital to you. How did you feel if someone dismissed that? Positivity. Counter negative media messages about the “horrible teens.” Remind your son of all that he does well and support him as he practices becoming an adult. Sue LeBreton is a freelance writer and mom of a tween boy and a teenage girl. She is learning to appreciate the appeal of video games.

not to move here.” Theresa has a background in special education and also is the mother of a profoundly deaf child. She understands first-hand the challenges both the child and the families face when dealing with special needs. “If we can help alleviate some of the pressure off the child and the family and put a smile on people’s faces, it gives us great pleasure,” Theresa said. The Goldberg’s realized that the largest and generally untouched wall looked at every day is the ceiling, especially for children with little or no mobility. By painting a mural on the ceiling it gives them something fun to look at and focus on. Patrons can visit their showrooms in Sandy and get a feel for the amazing creations these talented artists can create and design their own specific to their likes and interests. “There are not many people who can do what we do,” Alber said. “We are the specialist in our field but our goal is to train an artist in every state to do what we do. We give what we can back, we are not a big company so we need sponsors to help offset the costs of our donated ceilings, but we will never turn a deserving child away.” Alber and Theresa spent a day at my house, painting magic on my son’s ceiling. I was a little concerned how he would react to this change in his personal space due to his rigidity of routine and I have to say, his reaction surprised even me. That evening, lying on his back, looking up at the Milky Way and the stars, he repeatedly said, “Lucky me!” He took the words right out of my mouth.

The program embraces traditional academic subjects. The difference lies in the way the children learn. The Open Classroom Community, through a cooperative environment, will empower children to become responsible, lifelong learners. The Open Classroom is an innovative school that invites children, teachers and parents to collaborate as a community that inspires and celebrates the adventure of learning. Every person in the learning community–children, parents and teachers–has a role to play in creating and maintaining a meaningful, purposeful learning environment. It can be difficult to imagine how the OC’s principles work in action without visiting the school. The school welcomes visitors to come see the great dynamic that develops in this unique classroom environment and tour the school.

This Month! Kimberly Carlson

Sing Out Loud! March is the perfect month to start a new singing habit When both of my children were born, I had the urge to sing to them every time I held them. It surprised me as I am not one to sing along to songs on the radio and you couldn’t pay me to join on karaoke nights. I sang them to sleep regularly. I hummed while they nursed. I patted their backs to the rhythms of my heartbeat when they were hurt or sad or ill. My mom did the same with her children, and I would venture a guess that her mother did, too.

Singing is Healthy March is national Sing With Your Child Month and a good time to highlight the benefits of singing. Dr. Matt Woolley, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Psychiatry at the University of Utah and Adolescent Clinical Psychologist explains that “being involved in music – especially at an early age – has lifelong neurological benefits in the areas of cognitive functions, memory and attention.” A recent study by Dr. Alicia Mackay, PhD, at the University of Kansas has found strong connections between music training and how it stimulates the emotional connections in our brain; pairing our emotional connections to our cognitive functions throughout our lifespan. Simply put, when you sing with your child, you are creating a positive, emotional bond while stimulating the creative and cognitive parts of your child’s brain. “Studies have proven that the stronger the parental attachments children have, the better their brain functions are,” said Woolley. Singing is a great way to forge those bonds and

shape up the brain.

Loving Lullabies Kim Clayton, owner, director and producer of Clayton Productions for the past 25 years in Salt Lake City would agree. “Singing lullabies and nursery rhymes to babies and infants even before they learn to speak enhances the child’s ability to decode sounds and words and prepares the child’s ear, voice and brain for language development.” Clayton further explains that “listening to and singing songs uses both sides of the brain and improves creativity.” Sam Nozumi, a retired preschool teacher and mother of four in Lehi also sang at home. “I sang to my babies because it was my natural motherly instinct. Lullabies are called lullabies for a reason: they would lull my babies to sleep.” She incorporated song and music into her classroom as well. “I found that music would calm my classroom and focus my students’ attention.” It helped her students retain information as well. “It is easier for a child to memorize a song about your body than a written list of body parts. Even if the child didn’t actively sing, you could still see him tapping his toe to the music, and mouthing the words – singing them in his head if not aloud.”

Clayton reminisces that “singing with my children at a young age was one of our favorite pastimes. We would sing songs for all of the holidays, sing nursery rhymes and we even learned the alphabet and the names of the states through music. This was an opportunity to promote learning, growth and improve memory while bonding and having fun!”

Singing Fosters Creativity, Attention and Cognitive Skills Darlene Casanova, owner and director of Imagination Place in Salt Lake City loves singing. “Singing keeps us in tune with our culture,” she said. “Music gives us a rich foundation that supports all other learning skills like math, spatial skills and social development. Participating in music and movement develops the whole child.” Imagination Place has been celebrating Sing With Your Child Month, sponsored by Music Together®, for the past

fifteen years. Casanova has seen a big shift in the last ten years in early education: sadly, the school systems have been dropping their musical portion. “Early childhood music education is learning to sing in tune and keep an accurate rhythm to the music they hear and participate with confidence to the music of our culture,” said Casanova. “New research from The Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, New Jersey shows that musical knowledge enhancement helps support childhood learning in all other areas. Especially for children who are delayed.” Imagination Place celebrates Sing With Your Child Month by offering various events throughout the valley such as a free parent/child musical bonding class called “Lullabies Aren’t Just for Leprechauns” and a celebration at the Tracy Aviary entitled “Spring Wing Fling” (cost

Lifelong Benefits “When a child makes a positive connection to a mastery experience, they are given a boost in self-confidence,” said Woolley. A mastery experience is one in which the child actively engages in, and subsequently masters a creative endeavor and has a positive recognition of his/her accomplishment. “When your daughter learns a new song, performs it, and has a positive response to it, be sure to reinforce her mastery of the event.” Woolley recommends. Asking questions like, ‘How were you able to learn that new song so quickly?’ and having her respond with ‘Well, I practiced a lot!’ allows the connection to be made. They recognize that they have mastered the task, thus boosting their self-esteem and raising their confidence. “Although not all children are “naturals”, the greater percentage of them are very teachable,” said Clayton. I definitely don’t fall within the “natural” category myself. Probably no one save my children will ever hear me sing, but that’s okay. I don’t sing to sound good; I sing to bond with my children and have fun. And although they are too old for me to sing them to sleep at night, they can still remember me doing so. Poor kids. Fortunately, they didn’t seem to mind my lack of perfect pitch! Regardless of how well (or not) you sing, everyone agrees: not only is it fun and engaging it’s mentally and emotionally healthy and has far-reaching benefits for all who do.

Egg-ceptional

Eggs By Karen Petersen, Oakdell Egg Farms

You can’t have Easter without eggs. Egg hunts and egg-coloring activities are central to many families’ Easter traditions. Eggs are not only an important part of our holiday fun, they are also an essential part of a healthy diet. Eggs are a naturally nutrientdense food. They are, in essence, a superfood. My life has been centered around this superfood for as long as I can remember. Our family’s egg farm business, Oakdell Egg Farms in the Cache Valley, began more than 100 years ago when my greatgrandpa Cecil received 10 chickens as a wedding present. Today, our family’s tradition of producing fresh, high-quality eggs is still going strong. In honor of the Easter season, our family wishes to share these egg-citing

Fun Facts G A hen turns over her egg about fifty times per day to prevent the yolk from sticking to the side of the shell.

nutritional and fun facts about eggs:

G A hen requires 24-26 hours to produce an egg.

Egg Super Powers

G 30 minutes later, she starts that process all over again.

G Eggs contain the highest – quality protein you can buy. It has the perfect mix of essential amino acids we need to build our own tissues. G Eggs contain 13 essential vitamins and minerals. G Eggs are one of the few natural sources of vitamin D. G An increase in protein consumption from 15 percent to 25-30 percent leads to improved appetite control and satiety. G Oakdell’s Omega-3 brown eggs assist the brain, impacting behavior and cognitive functions. G An Oakdell Omega-3 brown egg has 10 times as much vitamin E compared to ordinary brown or white eggs.

G The older the hen, the larger the egg. G The larger the egg, the thinner the shell becomes. G White eggs come from white chickens and brown eggs come from brown chickens. G Place an egg in a bowl of water. If it sinks, the egg is fresh, if it floats, it is not. G You can tell if an egg is boiled by how well it spins on a countertop: if it spins quickly, it is boiled. If it spins slowly and haphazardly, it is not. G Eggs age more in one day at room temperature than one week in the refrigerator. G The shell has up to 17,000 pores which the egg uses to absorb colors and odors.

Places To Party By Belinda Mooney

Batter Up! Birthday Party Birthdays are such an important part of a child’s life. The celebration and gathering of family and friends -- and of course the party -- make it one of the most exciting days of the year. Having a baseball birthday for your child offers fun and excitement and some creative opportunities for all. So pull out your balls and bats and batter up for a terrific themed birthday.

All Things Baseball First, gather up as much baseball memorabilia as you can. Check out thrift stores and yard sales for ball caps, bats and mitts and start stocking up. Once you have the baseball materials, create the perfect room in which to show them off. You can purchase balloons and streamers in your child’s favorite team’s color. Decorating the table is simple. Use clean ball caps turned upside down to hold utensils and napkins. Make place cards in the form of a baseball, and add each child’s name on the place setting. Peanut bags and hotdog containers are perfect, not to mention practical, table decorations for a baseball birthday party, too.

More Home Run Decorating Ideas Make posters or print out pictures of your child’s favorite team and hang them in various places around the room. Add some mitts and colorful balloons, and you’re ready to go. However, you might want to keep the bats and balls outside, lest guests be tempted to throw them around indoors. 44 UTAHFAMILY.COM MARCH 2013

Before guests arrive, set up a table with “tickets.” As the child comes in, have the ticket seller take their info and give them a ticket, just as if they were attending a real game. Also, keep your digital camera handy, and encourage guests to pose with the baseball props.

Invitations Make your invitation look like a sporting event ticket. List all the pertinent information in the ticket format and put your all-star’s birth date in the section, row and seat area. Have the title of the event “child’s name’s Birthday” and the place “Last name stadium” and date and time. Team pennants are also a colorful invitation option. Pick your child’s favorite team’s colors and make team name “child’s name’s Birthday” on the pennant invitation. Have the party information in smaller lettering below the team’s name.

Game Ideas Wiffle Ball Relay - For this game, divide the kids into two or three teams. Have the kids place a wiffle ball on a large spoon. The goal is to get to the end of the line and back again without losing the ball. If your ball falls off, you have to go back to the beginning. Then the next person in line goes until one team is done. As with most relay games, the team that finishes first wins. Baseball Toss - Use your imagination, plus some cardboard and paint, to create targets for the kids to knock down. Use a softball, and allow them a certain number of chances to knock down the target. Offer small prizes to the winners. Another option would be to have a cardboard target set up with differentsized holes. The goal would be to get the ball into the target within a certain number of tries -- for example, each child would get to try three times.

Fun favors If you are holding a baseball birthday party, you can inspire guests’ major-league dreams with some baseball party favors. You can give the favors out at the beginning and let kids play with them right there, or you can wait until the end so they can build some fun memories of their own at home. You can make goodie bags with baseball stickers,

baseball bat pens or baseball trading cards, or you can create favors that have a more personal touch. Here are some ideas: Make baseball pictures from white fun foam and card stock. Simply trace a circle onto the white foam, add “stitches” with a red marker so the foam resembles a baseball, and then cut a smaller circle out of the center. Cut a circle the same size as the ball out of cardstock. Using a digital camera, take a picture of the guest with the birthday boy, and print it to the correct size. Trim the photo to fit behind the small circle, make sure the image lines up with the opening, glue the cardboard onto the back and you have a wonderful keepsake. Personalized baseball caps are lots of fun. Let the kids make their own and it’s twice as much fun. You can have baseball caps with the guests’ names made, but why not let the kids make their own? All you need is a table set up with plain baseball caps, fabric paints, fabric glue and baseball patches. You can use fabric markers instead of fabric paint for less mess. Provide the kids with plain hats and let them decorate their hats however they would like. Another option would be to have personalized baseball cards made with the child’s name, face and “stats.” This will, of course, require getting this information ahead of time from their parents. Then prepare a template in a design or Word processing program, and input the data, along with the child’s picture. Simply print on cardstock and you are done.

HOMEWORK HASSLES?

Score a true “WIN / WIN” Homework struggles? Poor reader with good vocabulary? Smart child who studies but still performs poorly on tests?

In this two-part series presented at your local library, Pat Rosenbury shares: WHY your children are struggling with homework, WHY they sometimes fail to turn it in even when it's done, and WHAT you can do that will make them want to do their work and turn it in! YOU'LL WANT TO HEAR BOTH OF THESE FREE AND SURPRISING ONE-HOUR PRESENTATIONS IF YOU HAVE HOMEWORK BATTLES AT YOUR HOUSE.

1. Homework Battles - Everyone can win! The first presentation explores the underlying reasons homework time is so painful. Is reading the problem or could it be something as elusive as eye-movement? Help your child focus and stay on task long enough to complete his work! April 1, 2013 7:00 pm South Jordan Library

April 15, 2013 7:00 pm Sandy Library

April 8, 2013 7:00 pm Whitmore Library April 22, 2013 7:00 pm Draper Library

2. Memory & Vocabulary - Tipping the scales for success! The second presentation unravels the riddle of memory: Is it absorption of new information or retrieval that causes so much frustration? Learn about the role of vocabulary in the Homework and School Success Game! Presenter, Pat Rosenbury, MA, is a veteran classroom teacher and Educational Consultant. Her engaging style entertains while she educates and answers audience questions at venues across the country. She presents on a variety of topics such as preparing the brain to learn, the riddle of memory, and the causes and solutions for reading struggles of bright students.
