We have so much to cover today! From winter solstice to blanket forts, staying healthy and happy to tips for easier holidays with toddlers we're covering it all. We'll kick off with ideas for celebrating the winter solstice and how enjoying this holiday can get you out of a sticky situation. Then we'll see how blanket forts can actually get you a little peace and some time to accomplish things without the kids under foot.

Then we'll move on to a conversation about emotions, tantrums and healthy living. Jude Bijou is joining us for this conversation. Jude is the author of the award winning book Attitude Reconstruction and today she's talking to us about the healthy way to process our emotions. And when life is busy those emotions can run high so this is a perfect time to get some tips.

Then we'll wrap up with Christmas Corner, including seven more ideas for your Elf on the Shelf and some tips for keeping your family healthy for the holiday season. I'll even share my secret to avoiding the family holiday cold bug that gets shared each year at the first get together. And we'll finish off with some great tips from Blythe Lipman, a nationally recognized baby and toddler expert, a parenting consultant, an author of three award-winning books, Help!

Jude Bijou is a licensed marriage and family therapist (MFT), an educator in Santa Barbara, CA, and multi-award winning author of Attitude Reconstruction: A Blueprint for Building a Better Life (Riviera Press, 2011).

As the daughter of a famous pioneer in the field of behavioral child psychology and applied behavior analysis, Jude's upbringing sounds like it would be pretty cool. There was just one problem: she was miserable.

Earning a BA in psychology from Reed College and a master's in psychology from Carleton University, she became a marriage and family therapist.  Success was attained, yet something was still missing. Looking eastward, she immersed herself in the world of meditation and Vedic philosophy. The result: an integrated, truly holistic approach to therapy and for living a fulfilling life.

In 1982, Jude launched a private psychotherapy practice and started working with individuals, couples, and groups. She also began teaching communication courses through Santa Barbara City College Adult Education. Jude also became a sought-after workshop and seminar leader, teaching Attitude Reconstruction to others.

The culmination of Jude's groundbreaking work can now be found in Attitude Reconstruction: A Blueprint for Building a Better Life. These simple and effective principles have impacted countless clients, seminar participants and students. And Jude promises this: if we learn to use the tools we're intrinsically born with constructively, we can truly create a life full of joy, love, and peace.
