“I get by with a little help from my friends. ”   As we arrive at this Friday in December 2008 the holiday season is fully upon us. As far back as the time of the Roman Empire, this is traditionally the season of gift-giving. Even in this year of economic hardship for so many, I hear people speaking of ways in which they might still give. We give to strangers in gifts of charity. We try to come up with the things that members of our family both need and will treasure while keeping costs down.

Laguna Beach PTA Coffee Break presents PLAYFUL PARENTING: a Bold Way to Nurture Close Connections and Solve Behavior Problems , 8:15 to 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, January 20, at the Surf and Sand Hotel, Laguna Beach. Cost is $5 for coffee & muffins. Children of all ages have an ongoing need for connectedness, security and attachment; playful interaction with parents is an important way to develop such bonds. Through play, parents can help their kids gain greater confidence, express bottled up or difficult feelings, recover from daily emotional upheavals, negotiate agreements, express love and--not least--have fun.   Playful Parenting, developed by Dr. Larry Cohen, gives parents the tools they need to make interactions with children more fun, foster clearer communication and a stronger connection between parent and child, and offer an alternative discipline approach rather than the typical punitive or permissive models.

Silber and Silber "13 Conversations About One Thing" is a thoughtful and insightful film exploring the issue of happiness, or the lack of it, in our lives. There is a theory that we are born with a level of contentment or happiness and that this tends to pervade our life experience regardless of what happens to us. Our innate optimism or pessimism can influence how we play the cards dealt to us in life. There are well-documented examples of lottery winners, after the initial euphoria, feeling as happy as they were or weren't before they won, and of trauma victims, again after the initial depression, who continue to find joy in their life despite being paralyzed for life.

CHASING DOWN THE MUSE Sycamores, dressed in brilliant green and bright orange poppies, blanket the hillsides. A red-tail soars overhead and everywhere mourning doves can be heard cooing. The world renews itself as spring opens wide her arms. Except in dark corners, where men hunt men with weapons and steeled intent. When does a dove become a hawk become a dove? In nature, never. In human beings, often. My heart is heavy and sickened, my country at war. Spaniards burn our flag in the streets and chant, "Hate America."

What word comes to mind when you think of school? For most children today, the response is "boring." Deborah Stipek, dean and professor of education at Stanford University, focused her talk with Laguna Beach parents on how this "school is boring" notion has become internalized in our culture. "Something is wrong with this picture of kids starting out with such high levels of excitement and enthusiasm, and by high school and college needing pills to cope with the pressures and challenges," she stressed.

Most people will not admit this out loud, but we have made fun of Earth Day. With its unrealistic solar ovens and organic patchouli oil, over the past 40 years it has grown into a bloated caricature of itself. And now in Laguna Beach we have added its nautical stepsister, Kelpfest. But here's the thing: The eco-revelers are having the last laugh. Regular humans are finally paying attention and listening. Perhaps we are feeling mortal. Perhaps the global headlines are starting to sink in. Perhaps we are believing the science.
