10 Ways Parents Can Promote a Healthy Self-Image in their Children

see more by

One of my friends, Dr. Lyndsay Elliott, is a clinical psychologist specializing in eating disorders and body image. When she recently emailed me to ask if I would ever like her to write something for my blog about how parents can help promote a healthy self-image in their children, I almost screamed through the computer, “YES!!”

As a mom raising two girls, it is something I think about a lot.

More than anything I want them to grow up with a healthy relationship with food and a good appreciation for their bodies. In today’s world, especially living in Orange County, I know it will be challenging.

That’s why I am so happy to give you Dr. Lyndsay’s suggestions on things we can do as parents to help…

Another Jessica Bennett Interiors Tiny Oranges Project: A Little Boy’s Room

see more by

This past March I did a post on the extreme accessories makeover that Jessica Bennett Interiors did on my living room.  Every single time I walk through my new living room it makes me feel happy.

From this first post, Jessica got lots of inquiries from Tiny Oranges readers also wanting some design assistance. One of these inquiries resulted in a super cute “big boy” room for a soon-to-be big brother of an OC mom in Irvine!

I love that my post turned into a beautiful new room for another family, so this is a full circle project between Jessica Bennett Interiors and Tiny Oranges! I love design posts so I am thrilled to show you this family’s before and after pictures of their two-year-old’s new room.

Camp Spooky at Knott’s Berry Farm

see more by

On Saturday my family and I had the opportunity to attend “Snoopy’s Costume Party” in Camp Spooky at Knott’s Berry Farm.

I hadn’t been to Knott’s Berry Farm since probably my sophomore year in high school, which was, um, quite some time ago so I was excited to visit again and take my girls for the first time.

During the weekends in October, Camp Snoopy, the area in Knott’s dedicated to rides for little ones, is transformed into Camp Spooky, a knott so scary way to celebrate Halloween!

Geared towards little ones ages 3 – 11, your little ghosts and goblins (or in my case matching cheerleaders) can dress up in their costumes and enjoy Halloween festivities like trick-or-treating, a “Haunted Harvest” corn maze, Linus’ Foam-tastic Pumpkin Patch, a costume parade, Monster Mash Dance Party and more.
