“Victorious Parenting: Achieve the Peaceful Homelife you Deserve!”

I wanted to share another great parenting website I really like:

https://victoriousparenting.com/

From the site:

“I’m Arabella Hille, founder of Victorious Parenting.

I am a mother, former teacher, and experienced Parenting Educator. I’m qualified in Behavioral Science through Swinburne University. I have been providing parenting resources and support to the online parenting community for years. Via my books and programs, I have now helped over 33,000 families worldwide!

I help parents & caregivers become Victorious by providing resources and advice, so they can help their kids grow into well-rounded adults who can take on anything life throws at them.

You can read more about my story click the button on my site to find a program that’s right for you.

Parenting can feel like an exhausting uphill battle & each child is unique. This can make it even harder to figure out how to;

  • Reach them when they don’t open up to you.
  • Deal with behavioral difficulties that arise from low self-esteem.
  • Teach them how to stand up for themselves effectively.
  • Manage their behavior without damaging them.
  • Effectively communicate and build relationships with multiple children especially when sibling rivalry is involved.

I’ve been there. I can help.”

Information on Social Security Benefits for People with Mental Illness

If you are currently suffering from a mental illness and it is affecting your ability to work and survive, social security disability benefits may be an option for you but can be a complicated subject for many. Knowing who qualifies, how to maximize your chance of getting approved, and how payments are calculated is crucial information to know. I recently had a law firm who offered a link to a guide about navigating social security disability benefits and includes just about everything they could think of. Check out the guide:

Social Security Disability Guide – m-n-law.com/social-security-disability-insurance-benefits-guide/

They put a lot of work into making this guide and thought it would be a great addition to my page. If you are local to Birmingham, AL I also know an attorney close to here personally that specializes in this same thing.

CaringBridge Website for Those on a Difficult Health Journey

I recently had a former coworker pass away from a rare disease. Before she passed, I found out about her illness through a website called CaringBridge. The website kept me updated on her condition, educated me about it and also allowed me to communicate with her and to assist her family financially during her health journey.

CaringBridge is made for those who are currently undergoing difficult health journeys. Their product is free—supported by donors. But sometimes, it can be hard to suggest CaringBridge to those who are in health journeys, simply because they can be hard to identify. 

They work with hospitals and healthcare systems to recommend CaringBridge to patients, but the best referrals always come from word of mouth. 

So here’s how you could help. Do you know anyone who currently could use CaringBridge? Would you be willing to tell them about it?

It would give them all the resources CaringBridge has—the Journal, the Planner, and the vital connections, comments, well wishes, and messages during this critical time. If you know someone, feel free to forward them this email. Here is a link you can send them to start a site and find more resources.

I have a friend currently going through IVF after experiencing many miscarriages over the years with no explanation. She is my age, 40 and I thought her blog might be interesting and/or helpful to some of my followers so here is the link below. She also has a Go Fund Me set up I have shared below, that I donate to every once in a while, when I can afford to if anyone else wants to donate.

My book is free on Kindle until end of day Tuesday and paperback now only $6 and hardback $12

My book is Free on Kindle until end of day Tuesday, June 28, 2022. This is a promotion Amazon allows me to do once every 3 months for 5 days so I will try to continue doing every 3 months. After that it will be only $2.99, and my paperback only $6 and hardback only $12 on Amazon. These will be the prices for a while or possibly permanently, and are almost the lowest I can offer to even break even. The Audible price for the audio book will still be $13.03, because I do not control that price, or you can get it free with an Audible subscription or trial. I will continue to donate at least 10 percent of my profits from any of these, even if small, and any profits from ads on my website and podcast to related charities. Just go to the link below to access any of them….

What Helps Amanda, 39, with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Normally when I have something published by the Mighty, a mental health website, it is usually a blog I have already published here, but this time, it is a submission I sent in regarding what helps me manage my illness. Please check it out at the link below….

Music Therapy

I was recently contacted by Joseph, who is part of the Community Outreach team at White House Recovery & Detox, and their goal is to educate the public on life skills and essential therapies and resources for mental health and wellness, in hopes to raise awareness and prevention.  

After reviewing my website, they thought their new article on Music and Mental Health would be an excellent addition to my resources and I agreed, which you can see here, https://recoveryatwhitehouse.com/music-therapy-and-mental-health/ . I have also added their main website as a resource on the About section of my website.

Here is some more helpful information Joseph provided: “As you may know, mental health issues are at an all-time high with more cases of anxiety and depression than ever before. The silver lining to the pandemic is that the stigma around mental health has dropped, making it easier for people to seek the help they need. One type of therapy I’ve found interesting to learn about is music therapy. According to the American Music Therapy Association, music therapy is an evidence-based practice of a board-certified music therapist to help clients achieve non-music goals such as improving mental health and recovering from addiction.”

I have actually been meaning to add more to a newer section on my site called “Music and Mental Health” including some blogs and podcasts about how music has helped improve my own mental health, so keep an eye out for new posts on that soon! Please feel free to share in the comments how music has helped your mental health and what music specifically and how? Or as always, feel free to share with me privately if you want me to share your story confidentially.

Raising Yourself

There is a Facebook page I follow and love so I wanted to share the website here and some content from it. I have also added it to the About section of my site.

“Hi! I’m Shelly Robinson, the heart and soul behind Raising Yourself. I am so glad you’re here.

When I first became a mom, I remember being so thrilled about the opportunity to teach my children all the things I wanted them to know. I was bubbling over with wisdom I wanted to impart, lessons I wanted to teach. Oh, I thought I knew so much.

Now, nearly a decade into this parenting gig, I have learned that they had far more to teach me than I had to teach them.”

Autism and Depression Resources

Recently I had Martina Maseko, the Outreach Coordinator with Elemy ask if I could add these valuable resources below to my site and after looking them over I was more than happy to share. I have also added these to the About Section of my site. Elemy is an innovative, tech-forward provider of in-home and online applied behavior analysis to help children on the autism spectrum meet their unique needs.

They recently created a free educational guide on autism and suicidal thoughts. This resource explains how to recognize warning signs in neurodivergent individuals and discusses suicide risk factors and prevalence. Important topics, such as treatment options and advice for parents, are also covered.
