My two cents: Thoughts from an ancient cyber mom with a passion for the parent-child bond 

Lies in the social networkLast Saturday therapists, counselors and parents gathered to launch a movement to restore family as the “place to be” through strengthening the spiritual resilience of parents at home as the primary teachers for life. This event, a symposium on meeting the spiritual and mental health needs of modern youth and families, is the inaugural event for Banana Moments Foundation – a resource center devoted to strengthening the parent-child bond in a hyper connected world.

Our aim as the parent is to become the trusted resource to discuss what is happening in the child’s world on and off line. And in order to do this parents must communicate with a disciplined mind – it is the intentional setting aside fear-based thoughts and motives, and putting your trust into the thoughts that liberate the soul which require faith.


Banana Moments Foundation is dedicated to strengthening the parent-child bond in a hyper-connected world. To make a donation, please go go: Donations. Your generous support is greatly appreciated.
