Child and Teens Issues/Coaching

Raising a Happy Spirit

Connect with Julianna


Hi I am Julianna Lyddon and I am a life coach and I have a Master’s in marriage and family and in child counseling. I’m also a teacher and a mother of three adult children.

I want to share with you some information about my book entitled, “Raising a Happy Spirit – the Inner Wisdom of Parenting.”

One thing that makes this book really unique is that it is a Minibuk and the concept behind Minibuk is that you can take a powerful message and put it into a small package and make it easy for people to pass the information around, easy to understand, and more importantly, easy to assimilate these concepts into your daily life.

And one thing I have learned in my private practice is that we need to develop deeper more authentic relationships with our children. Sometimes I see that there’s such a disconnect between parents and children especially as the kids start to reach kind of the adolescent period.  

So I have provided some concepts in this book that will help you to teach things like compassion, humility, forgiveness, self soothing, interdependence. Now these aren’t concepts that are unfamiliar to you, however, sometimes we get stuck, we don’t quite know how to actually integrate these types of concepts int our daily parenting routine.

Raising a Happy Spirit

Raising A Happy Spirit: The Inner Wisdom of Parenting


Happy Spirit

One thing that makes this book, Raising A Happy Spirit: The Inner Wisdom of Parenting, unique is that it is a mini-book!  The concept behind a mini-book is that you will find powerful messages in a small package. And the small package makes it easier for you to understand, easier for you to assimilate the concepts into your daily lives, and easier for you to pass the information along.

Based on her philosophy that we need to develop deeper more meaningful relationships with our children, Julianna has provided concepts in this book that will not only help teach children compassion, humility, forgiveness, self-soothing and inter-dependence but also teaches us, as parents, how to integrate these concepts into our daily parenting routine.  

Happy children who are loved and celebrated become well-adjusted, confident adults. But how do you get them there? This book is full of insights about intuition and will help us discover its importance and see the uses it has for teaching what is really important in everyone’s life.

Raising A Happy Spirit: The Inner Wisdom of Parenting is available at or on

Connecting with your teenager

I want to talk to you parents, guardians, individuals that are raising children that are adolescents. Maybe they are in their pre teen years approaching adolescence.  Maybe you have a child that is acting out a bit and giving you a hard time. This is the issue and the topic I want to cover today in this video.  One thing I found when I was studying for my masters program for marriage and family and child therapy and what I have found in the real world and in my coaching practice, because periodically I coach parents on parenting and when they hit these road blocks and need just a little extra special attention, that we all need to practice our listening skills.  

There really is an art to listening. Click To Tweet

And I know as well because I am the mother of three grown children myself, and parenting can be very very hard.  Especially when we hit the adolescence with our kids.  Its as if they are poof and gone. One day you have this incredible child that communicates with you openly maybe gives you hugs in public, wants to talk to you, wants you to be included in their activities. And the next day they’re gone.  Its like where did that child go that we knew for so many years.  And it can be so frustrating and it can be really scary.  So the one thing that we need to practice as parents is being a better listener, me included at times.  I tell you what its not necessarily easy and it takes some practice and it takes patience.

What do you teach your children?

What do you teach your children?


Do you teach your children about their power?

In other words, do you teach your children that they hold their power…that their power doesn’t exist outside of themselves. We spend lifetimes looking for our power in others….. searching for the quick fix, the magic remedy, the answer to our problems, the elixir that will stop our bodies from aging and on and on.

We need to start believing, on a conscious level, that we possess all the power to fix our lives, to live in abundance, to feel happiness on a daily basis, to create joy and bliss on all levels!

Don’t forget to instill in your children this philosophy of personal power and that their answers for a happy life lie within them….not through someone else.

We need our youth to make a leap and become more confident in their abilities as human beings Click To Tweet

The World of Relationships

The World of Relationships

The world of relationships

through my lens

has been awe inspiring.

The stories I hear, the amazing people I meet, the pain I witness, the triumphs I get to admire and the healing I help assist with have all contributed to my life in a beautiful way.

I see a lot of women, all ages. I listen to story after story and they all have similar roots. It sometimes feels like a revolving door.

I often say…”I just heard this same scenario with the last woman”. These stories and issues are all about dating and finding love.

We all want and need to be loved. It’s part of the human condition. It scares us to death to think of spending our whole life alone.

The view through my lens is this……

We live in a time where we have conditioned ourselves to put sex before the emotional connection. Women and even our teens are accustomed to this behavior. This post is not about judging when we have sex with someone, but it is about learning to stand in our sexual power! This is a real issue that has gotten to epidemic proportions and is truly affecting women of all ages, but predominately our youth.

My advice…TALK, TALK and TALK more about sex with your kids. Click To Tweet

I hear stories from many women, but the ones that concern me the most are the ones from the teenagers. They have such a NEED to be loved and accepted and fit in. Young girls are having sex in very casual settings and frequently because it’s what has become expected. They believe this is what they “should” do to get a boy to like them. The worst part is how they feel afterwards. They talk about feeling used and disconnected from themselves and the boy. Often there is little to no conversation, making it even more awkward. When asked about details of the experience, they often say they didn’t even like it, but know that the boy did.

Somewhere along the way the message is not getting through, the conversations are not happening or maybe we just don’t know how to begin to talk about such a vulnerable, sensitive subject. Imagine a young woman who grows up giving herself away to one boy after another and each time feeling horrible about herself because she thinks this is what love is. She believes that sex and love are the same. She lives in silence feeling shameful and worthless at times. Nobody talked to her about how sex and love are different and what it means to emotionally connect with someone on a deep level. Nobody ever told her that sex truly is beautiful and to honor her sexuality as a gift. She grows up believing that sex is about the act and the orgasm and that if the boy shows he’s sexually attractive to her, then she is beautiful. Now imagine you as an adult woman and you are still entangled in this same maze. You begin to wonder what is wrong with you and often feel depressed and left thinking…”why do I feel unloveable?” Nothing is wrong with this woman except that she was never told about how to integrate the sexual piece of herself into her identity. It’s conveniently left out of the family conversations. We shy away from it and say things like…”keep your legs closed” or don’t act like a slut” or even another extreme, we push our girls to have a boyfriend because we, as mothers, want them to be popular. I could write forever on this subject.

There is so much work to be done here and it’s all about self worth. We are sexual beings and when we are not educated about this beautiful part of ourselves (boys included), we come through life wounded in a very deep way.

Parenting Tip #1- Listen to Your Intuition

Parenting Tip #1- Listen to Your Intuition


Listen to Your Intuition! 

Earlier this week I blogged about Julianna’s suggested resolutions to strengthen your family.  She suggested that one way was by being in the present (put away your cell phones) and not over-committing your children with structured extra-curricular activities.

On this month’s Arizona Midday segment, Julianna continued the conversation by adding these great tips:

Listen to your intuition. We as females and as mothers have a great sense of what is usually called “Mother’s intuition”.  But we get bombarded by others telling us what we should – and should not – be doing. Don’t let others talk you into doing something, or not doing something, when you inner voice tells you otherwise. 

Don’t forget to self-care. Take some much-needed “me” time. Maybe keep the sitter around for an extra hour so that you can take a walk around the block, or maybe take a long luxurious bath. Take that extra time to decompress.

We as females have such a keen intuition! But we don't always listen to it. Click To Tweet

Read to your children more. Most children’s books tell you what age they are for. Maybe go up a level and read to them from a book a little more advanced than their age. It may bring about some wonderful and deep discussions.

Go outside more with your children. It not only feels good to be with them outside, but it is good for us.

Give one surprise a month to your children. Or once a week. Or once every other week. Whatever feels right for you and your family. Let your children know that there is a surprise coming, too. That builds the anticipation and it’s also something fun to look forward to. And then the surprise could be something like serving your children breakfast for dinner. Or taking your children out for ice cream one day after school. Or having a family game night before bedtime. All these activities are not just fun, but bonding as well.

New Year’s Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions


New Year’s Resolutions

Have you kept yours?


Now is around the time when all those heart-felt, totally meant-them-when-you-said-them, New Year’s resolutions start falling by the wayside. Hey we’ve all done it.  Life gets in the way even if our intentions were sincere when we started off.

But one resolution that we should always be mindful of is the one we make to strengthen our family. But how?

 Well, in the video below Julianna offered the viewers of Arizona Midday some tips on how to do that.

Be in the present with your children. Click To Tweet

First, she says we moms need to be “in the present” with our children. What that means for us is that we turn off the television and we put our cell phones away.  And you know what else? We leave our work… at work.   The goal is to get into our children’s world.  We need to listen to them and to play with them.  As moms, Julianna says, we are so talented at”multi-tasking” that we are not even aware we are doing it. And the result? We are not giving our children the quality attention that they need.

Kids grow up quickly! They will be adults before you know it. Make family time a priority. Click To Tweet

Furthermore, Julianna says that in this country we over commit our children.  Give them one, maybe two, structured activities. When they are over-committed they don’t have the opportunity to breathe!!!  But that doesn’t mean that there should be more television or video games during their down-time.  We have to get our kids to use their imaginations more.  Encourage them to play outside, or to read, or to participate in the arts. When we use our imaginations more we become more creative. When we become more creative, we in turn, become better problem solvers.
