The British childcare guru and mum, Harriet Crouch who helps empower parents has been voted as a top inspirational mum in 2021

Throw out the Rule Book, get muddy with your kids rolling down a hill on a rainy day. Watch your child's confidence grow. And with that confidence comes respect for Mother Nature and for mum and dad.”

— Harriet Crouch, Parental Coach, Mini Explorers Childcare

LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, April 13, 2021 / — Providing practical help on how to survive a new born baby and advice on the best ways to promote positive behaviour in a lively toddler are just two vital skills that led followers of parenting coach Harriet Crouch to vote for her as a mum influencer of 2021.

Inspired by the wonderful results she experienced from techniques she used in her nurseries in the United Kingdom and Europe, childcare expert Harriet founded the Mini Explorer Consultancy to help parents to overcome everyday dilemmas and build super relationships with their little ones.

Accolades and applause from parents who have applied Harriet's tips and seen rapid improvements in the behaviour of their babies and toddlers speaks volumes. In recognising Harriet for the honour, Mother & Baby told how Harriet also shares the reality of mothering a 2-year-old and a 4-month-old and how her online page 'makes us feel unbelievably normal'. Harriet's smile is also infectious and her toddlers Fred and gorgeous baby Margot will also set your heart beating.

So what are the rules for getting little ones to do what you'd like without always having to say no? "Throw out the Rule Book!' exclaims Harriet and "Get muddy" she says. Unconventional as it may sound, her advice couldn't be more natural as Harriet explains how getting tiny tots outdoors experiencing nature, be that rolling down a muddy hill on a rainy day or chatting with a goat in a field is an age old secret to building your child's confidence. And with that confidence comes respect for Mother Nature and for mum and dad.

Parents still have to set boundaries for their kids, and knowing how to do this well is key to Harriet's philosophy and teachings. The terrible two's can be a really tough time for parents and little ones, especially when you're in Lockdown and working from home during a pandemic as many families have found themselves. A frequently asked question of Harriet is, 'How do you manage tantrums?' She explains the secret is to, "Act in a calm and confident way, and watch the improvement in behaviour".

Harriet's website and Instagram page has lots of practical advice on things like, 'Why children behave in certain ways such as biting, hitting and throwing and how to manage them effectively'. She also covers how you can encourage your little one to share. The free and paid for practical guides to these and other parental tips like potty training are also supported by 'How to' videos, personal advice and training sessions.

Congratulations Harriet and a huge thank you from everyone you help.

New Program Offers Parents the Secrets of Raising a Happy, “Superstar” Baby and Igniting Their Hidden Potential

Prodigy Framework requires five minutes per day and no screen time

NEW YORK, USA, April 12, 2021 / — Raising Superstars Enterprises, whose Prodigy Framework has helped more than 35,000+ families ignite the hidden potential of their babies, is now accepting applications for its Thursday through Sunday weekend sessions.

The program teaches parents how to master the three secrets of raising a happy, superstar baby up to 2 years of age and awaken his or her unconscious genius.

The Prodigy Framework is an multi-disciplinary program that develops incredible, almost miraculous, abilities in babies. It covers topics like Athleticism, Reading, Math, Music, Creativity, Knowledge, etc. With the Prodigy Framework program, babies have achieved such feats like: crawling at 3 months instead of 8 months; walking at 8 months instead of 12 months; reading at 24 months instead of 6 years; singing in perfect harmony at 24 months; and developing a vocabulary of more than 200-plus-words at 18 months of age instead of an average of 20 words. Babies also develop extraordinary memory, athleticism, intelligence, creativity, independence and more.

Other benefits that babies gain from the program include photographic memory, sports prowess, math skills, encyclopedic knowledge, and speed reading, oratory and music abilities.

The Prodigy Framework requires just five minutes per day to develop a baby’s hidden potential. Parents simply have to watch video instructions, and then do the suggested activity with their baby for that day.

The five-minute time frame is perfect for working moms with time constraints. With its fun-filled activities, the program is also ideal for first-time and stay-at-home moms. The Prodigy Framework is convenient for dads, as well, who can do the program during their free time.

Using the Prodigy Framework program, parents can:

• Access the hidden potential of their babies before the age of 2.
• Awaken a baby’s unconscious genius so that they can lead a life full of health, wealth and happiness.
• Learn how to keep their babies away from the pressures and stress of schoolwork.
• Know the rules that allow them to understand exactly what is going on in a baby’s mind.

After completing the program, parents also join a community of other like-minded, highly engaged parents.
The Prodigy Framework program was developed by Raghav Himatsingka, a Stanford University graduate who devoted more than 2,000 hours of study to discover the secrets of accelerated learning after his son, Prabal, was born. “I found there’s a lack of an easy-to-use parenting system to raise a well-rounded, happy baby who would never have to face the struggles of learning in life like I did,” he said.

Himatsingka and his wife, Shraddha, “are on a mission to help more than one million parents make the life of their children a lot more happy and meaningful. If your baby is less than 2 years old, and you wish to give them the best gift of their life, this program is for you.”

The Prodigy Framework carries a money-back guarantee for 30 days.

The book will be available via Amazon and Barnes & Noble on April 20, 2021.

“Julie Hernandez’s book is a must-have in homes and schools, providing expert advice in a simplistic way so individuals of all ages can reap benefits and glean wisdom from this healthy social practices book.” – Stacy Padula, award-winning author of three young adult and children’s book series

“There Are All Kinds of Bullies, So What’s a Kid to Do should be a staple in all elementary schools and in offices of school social workers and guidance counselors. It’s a wonderful resource that promotes social and emotional learning in a relatable, age-appropriate way. I appreciate the way it depicts many forms of bullying in order to raise awareness and build empathy among young kids.” – Nicole O’Neill, LCSW, Owner, Harbor Counseling

45th President conducts rare and exclusive interview on Real America’s Voice network

CENTENNIAL, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2021 / — In a rare interview appearance on Real America’s Voice, a linear, digital news network owned by Performance One Media, former President Donald Trump spoke on a wide variety of issues, including family and parenting, faith, media bias, the Biden presidency, the COVID crisis, and the future prospects of the Republican Party — including weighing in on the possibility of another run.

In an extensive phone interview with Dr. Gina Loudon broadcast on Dr. Gina Primetime, President Trump noted that he’s never felt as much enthusiasm and support from the public as he does now. “There’s more enthusiasm there’s more love out there now than there was at any time before,” he said.

President Trump commented on the hostile media and Establishment bias he faced while in office. “You’re going through this horrible situation,” he said. “I had two jobs when I was President — to do a great job for the country and protect the country, and to survive.” he continued.

The President was as tough on his former allies in the GOP as he was on his opponents. "Our leadership is not good,” Trump observed. “We don’t have good leadership in the Senate,” he continued. “They’re running right over Mitch McConnell."

But despite his harsh words for Republican leadership, the President was overall hopeful about the GOP’s future prospects. “I think the Republicans are going to do really well in a year and a half from now,” he said. “We have now choice but to do well. And hopefully we’re gonna do well in the House, we’re gonna do well in the Senate, and then in ‘24 we’re gonna do well with that beautiful White House,” he continued.

When asked about his own future political prospects and a potential second run, the President responded, “well we're looking and we'll see and we'll see how things are going."


Real America’s Voice delivers exciting live-event coverage seven days a week across a growing list of powerful content distribution channels, including DISH-TV Ch. 219, Pluto TV Ch. 240, Roku, AppleTV, and Fire TV. You can also watch all Real America’s Voice programming, including Primetime with Dr. Gina, at or by downloading the app on Apple or Android.

The newly released eBook provides a guide to empowerment, encouragement and healing.

DREXEL HILL, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2021 / — Author, entrepreneur and certified parenting and relationship coach Kishna J. is pleased to announce the release of her new book, A Letter to Your Trauma: 6 Steps to Overcoming Trauma Mentality, available to download completely free of charge.

A mother of two school-aged children with years of experience in teaching and coaching, Kishna was, at one time in her life, the victim of domestic violence and abuse. In her book she shares her story, with the goal of helping others who also find themselves in an abusive relationship.

“I have been abused and I have seen people around me be abused,” says Kishna. “But I have survived, and more importantly, I have healed. It certainly wasn’t easy, but I’m here now to share my experiences and help others. I’m making my book available for free in the hopes that it will reach as many people in need as possible, and help them heal from their trauma.”

Sadly, domestic abuse is more common in our society than most people think. Statistics show that one in four women are victims of domestic abuse, along with one in nine men. Experts are afraid that those numbers may be even higher at present as a result of people being forced to stay home during the pandemic.

Kishna explains that her book is specifically intended to help victims unlearn the defensive behaviors that were created as a result of their trauma. Readers will learn how to identify the trauma they suffered, forgive themselves for being in the situation, and eventually replace their learned defense mechanisms with healthy coping tools.

“Most importantly, after reading my book, you will never fall prey to an abuser again!” adds Kishna.

Author, motivational speaker and blogger, Kishna J. also offers parenting, relationship, and life coaching, one-on-one or in group settings. On her blog, Balancing Life & Kids, readers can find a series of down-to-earth, humorous, yet educational posts on subjects ranging from relationships to ‘momming’ it, to surviving quarantine.

International Parenting & Health Institute Provides Globally Accredited Russian Adult & Child Sleep Coach Certification

Careers Driven to Transform Lives & Evolve Humanity

IPHI is first organization to pioneer a holistic team based no sleep training approach to child sleep challenges that also addresses & supports pregnancy sleep

Our children’s bodies do not need to technically be “trained” to sleep. By nature’s design, human bodies are already programmed to sleep and will do so if we understand how to support the process.”

— Mar De Carlo

OJAI, CA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2021 / — The International Parenting & Health InstituteTM is pleased to announce it is providing a globally accredited certification program for maternity and child sleep consulting, now also available in Russian.

The study of sleep health, while an emerging field, has managed to elude many – as there is both limited training in the healthcare field and lack of support to help families find the root cause of their sleep challenges. Many programs on the market try to generalize sleep solutions with sleep training methods by collecting data that can often be misleading and does not provide the individualized customized support needed to address this growing concern that is so deeply connected to both managing and maintaining long term health.

Since 2011, the International Parenting & Health Institute™ (IPHI) has been the first organization to pioneer a holistic, no sleep training team-based approach that addresses pregnancy sleep, newborn sleep, child sleep and adult sleep. Rather than choosing a baby-led vs parent-led approach, IPHI supports a team-led approach that addresses and supports everyone’s needs which IPHI feels supports different family cultures best.

“After giving birth, sleep can be a great challenge for the entire household: not just a child issue but also a family issue,” says founder of International Parenting & Health Institute, Mar De Carlo. “When a child is experiencing sleep challenges, the whole family is affected. Often, these families have been sleep-deprived for weeks and sometimes months, which can have negative and traumatic effects even after experiencing a healthy and powerful birth. This is where the Russian IPHI Maternity & Child Sleep Certification Program comes in, which is rooted in the philosophy of the “Holistic Science of Sleep Method,” which I developed.”

With 25 years of experience and training in the health, fitness and coaching, Mar is the first to pioneer a holistic integrative professional training program via IPHI for pregnancy, newborn, child and adult sleep that covers valuable topics not found in average sleep studies. Her program provides graduates the tools to determine the most significant factors that are interfering with the body's natural rhythms and encourages health and lifestyle choices that put the science of sleep into action. Through support and education, awareness for this growing issue is raised and individuals are provided with the tools necessary to help others successfully overcome the most common sleep problems – and to engage them in understanding and learning techniques to improve the overall quality of their sleep.

Through this game-changing program, individuals will:

• Learn to effectively plan, prepare, and learn about supporting a family’s sleep needs and goals
• Work one-on-one with a professional sleep consultant
• Learn preventative measures to address sleep challenges at all stages, from pregnancy to infancy
• Learn about IPHI’s signature sleep optimization methods
• And so much more!

The representative and instructor for the IPHI’s Maternity & Child Sleep Consultant Russian Program is Ekaterina Turkina. She is a successful graduate and master trainer of IPHI. Ekaterina is a speaker at the XI All Russian Scientific and Practice Conference, "Modern Problems of Somnology," with her work having been featured in "MK", and influential Russian newspaper.

The IPHI Maternity & Child Sleep Consultant Certification Program is currently available in Russian, Japanese, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Turkish, French and Korean. Due to high demand, the Integrative Adult Sleep Coach Program will be offered in Russian as well.

About IPHI

The International Parenting & Health Institute™ (IPHI) is the first educational organization to offer an online professional training program that provides holistic team based approaches, integrative tools and solutions for adult, pregnancy and child sleep. The organization has been at the forefront of parenting and health education, offering integrative, holistic, cutting-edge training and preparation through an online learning format since 2009. IPHI has over 3,000 graduates and 20 instructors and is currently represented in 46 countries and in 10 different languages, including English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, German, and Korean.

"I got elected to solve problems & I will handle two problems at a time,”- President Biden. All problems need attention.

Identify with the mind and with it heal the brain.

use the Brain and Mind to Improve Each Other.

Emotional health is the panacea for a wise America.

Emotional intelligence comes from emotional health.

Are you your pure self or your phony self-image?

Use your mind/’I’ to heal your brain.

America cannot afford to put aside even a single problem to be solved later. America is well equipped and must handle all the problems simultaneously.

Consider problems as fires. Does it make any sense if just two fires are tackled at a time and all others are left to burn in the meantime? America has the means to address all problems simultaneously”

— Sajid Khan

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, March 28, 2021 / — Consider every problem as a fire. Several fires are burning simultaneously, but Biden says he will tackle just a couple of fires at a time. Every fire is causing its own destruction where it is hurting a different group of people. Every single group needs to be protected. America cannot afford to ignore any one of the fires. Action must be taken on every single fire.  

Two steps need to be taken to tackle all the fires simultaneously. 

1) Just as Biden is handling the COVID19 crisis by giving full power to Dr. Fauci to lead the response without any technical interference of his own, Biden must make each cabinet secretary fully in charge of handling the fire in their area of expertise. Make every cabinet secretary the president of their respective department! It is vital to let the top expert team tackle each fire than to let even one fire go unaddressed. Biden does not need to focus on solving all the problems. Let each department handle its own responsibilities. Biden needs to provide the vision, the goalposts, and the support.

2) The #1 crisis, the elephant in the room, the mother of all fires, is caused by ignorance regarding emotional health. Biden must provide an unprecedented solution to the mother of all problems. Emotional health optimization is the mother of all solutions.

The biggest fire of them that destroys emotional health is the fire we start in early childhood, which creates emotionally challenged trophy self and group images. We are brought up believing each one of us is the best. Our group, creed, color, gender, class, etc., is the best. Not only is each person a tribe on its own, but we also create tribes divided by all of the above factors. It results in messing up relationships, happiness, health, education, prosperity, leading to depression, drug addictions, bankruptcies, declining social standards, crime, abuse, class divides, inequity, discrimination, etc. Just a simple change in upbringing will take care of all these fires. Instead of creating trophy self-images, we need to create selfless self and group self-images by nurturing and cultivating humility. 

The health of health, education, society, prosperity, social standards. etc., springs from a solid foundation of emotional health. Thus, America needs to create a fully staffed Department of Emotional Health headed by a powerful cabinet secretary with independent charge. Every single cabinet must have its own emotional health department. 

We need emotional health hospitals and university departments. We need emotional health therapy. We need new professions of emotional health coaches, teachers, inspectors, and therapists. We need a new subject of brain education. We need testing and a manual for emotional health and wise parenting. Also, there is a need to create emotional health apps. We need to create crypto-solutions.;_ylu=Y29sbwNiZjEEcG9zAzEEdnRpZAMEc2VjA3Ny/RV=2/RE=1616968455/RO=10/

Family Mediators Welcome Government Voucher Scheme

Ali Carter Mediate UK

Ali Carter, Managing Director Mediate UK

Mediate UK Find Your Future

The UK government has today issued £1 million in vouchers towards family mediation for disputes on parenting. Mediate UK will be members of the scheme.

UNITED KINGDOM, March 26, 2021 / — The government has today announced that it is investing £1m in family mediation, to support families to resolve issues relating to children. Under the scheme, the Ministry of Justice will provide contributions of up to £500 per family, to resolve issues relating to children following parental separation. Mediation will be provided by Family Mediation Council Accredited (FMCA) mediators and the fund will reduce the costs of mediation for at least 2000 families.

John Taylor, Chair of the Family Mediation Council said 'This government investment in mediation is much welcomed by the Family Mediation Council. It will help separated families agree solutions that are best for their children, taking into account what is going to be important for them as they grow up. Family mediation is a proven cost-effective way to resolve differences following separation. This voucher scheme will make it even more accessible, and will help families resolve issues for themselves, without having to go to court.'

Family mediation is a process in which an independent, professionally trained mediator helps parents work out arrangements for children and finances following separation. Mediation can also be helpful when previous child arrangements need to change, particularly as children grow up.

Ali Carter, the managing director of Mediate UK, who will be participating in the scheme, hopes this will help parents struggling with separation and the additional impact that Covid has had on relationships, “Children of separated parents have suffered as a result of schools closing, not being able to see family members and in many cases parents arguing and disagreeing over arrangements during the outbreak. At a time when money is tight, these vouchers, which are open to any parents or grandparents going through a dispute, will help families resolve their parenting issues, keep more funds available for the family and ultimately help children at an extremely difficult time in their lives. We welcome this news and are available to help families anywhere in England and Wales online or at our national network of branches.”

Ann Buscho Releases an Open Letter to Alice Evans about Her Divorce

Dr. Ann Buscho, PhD.

There is no question that a divorce is a life crisis, and even worse when you are blindsided with the announcement. I empathize with your pain.

SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 25, 2021 / — Dear Alice, Your divorce is all over the news and social media this week. Your suffering, shock, and outrage are all over the news too.

I wonder how your daughters feel about this publicity as they attempt to deal with the forthcoming changes in your family. If you are sharing a betrayal by their father, I wonder how the “truth” will affect them.

There is no question that a divorce is a life crisis, and even worse when there has been a betrayal and you are blindsided with the announcement. I empathize with your pain.

I have one important question for you: When your daughters, Ella and Elsie, are sitting in a bar with their friends 15 years from now, what story do you want them to tell their friends about their parents’ divorce?

Will they share a story of acrimony and lengthy battles, or will they share a story of respect and resilience? Will they be able to say that their parents bore the burden of the divorce so that the children could go on being kids? I am asking you these questions because you, Ioan, and your girls are building that story now. It is already being formed. But you can shape this narrative, Alice. You shape it with your decisions, your actions, and your words.

But I want you to know one thing. You will recover and heal. Yes, it will take time. But the healing starts when the divorce is over. Research has shown that kids recover and fare better in life when their parents end their conflict. It is the conflict that harms kids. Conflict tears the kids apart and puts them in the middle of a mess they didn’t create or choose.

One more thing. The Collaborative Divorce process is not as you described. Collaborative Divorce is not a “phenomenal scam,” Alice. If you choose to divorce with Collaboratively trained professionals, your final outcome will allow you and your girls to heal, adjust and move on.

Perhaps your attorneys have not been trained in this very specific model but say “Oh yes, I am collaborative.” Or maybe they haven’t fully explained how it works. So be sure you hire trained Collaborative Divorce professionals.

Here is how Collaborative Divorce works:
You and Ioan Gruffudd agree to stay out of court because litigation is destructive to kids and families. This gives you control over your decisions. In court, a judge—who doesn’t even know you or your family—makes all the decisions.

Collaborative Divorce is a confidential process, unlike litigation when everything becomes part of the public record.

You agree to transparency and negotiating in good faith because that helps your family heal.

And your Marital Settlement Agreement is binding when your attorneys file it with the courts, exactly the same way litigated agreements are binding.

Alice, I hope that you and Ioan can successfully navigate the turbulent waters of divorce. I hope, for the sake of your girls, you can complete your divorce through a true Collaborative Divorce.

And, by the way, it isn’t about “dignity.” It is about shaping the story that your children will carry for the rest of their lives. Please, end the fighting and focus on your own healing.

With care,
