HAPPY 4TH OF July!!!

As a life-long resident and Realtor on Key Biscayne, I love sharing upcoming events and Interesting activities offered around our community for the residents and frequent visitors of our Island 
Paradise.

My father, Federico Padovan, moved our family (including grandparents) to Key Biscayne in 1973. I was raised on the Island and left briefly to earn a BFA degree at NYU. But my heart was always here so I returned to my Island Paradise home where I am raising 4th generation Key Biscayners with my husband Donnie Hall. 

To read more about me, 
 
I want to sincerely THANK all of you for the wonderful feedback and interest in participating in our Newsletter 
over the  last 3 years. See you in September!

Join HistoryMiami Museum's Resident Historian, Dr. Paul George, as he recounts the history of Biscayne Bay. Discover the storied past of Stiltsville, a series of colorful wooden houses built on the flats of the bay and located inside Biscayne National Park. Known in the 1940's, 50's and 60's as a playground for wealthy and well-connected, Stiltsville was once home to the now infamous Crawfish Eddies and Bikini Club. Learn how this once vivacious community on stilts dwindled down to the seven houses that remain today. Dr. George will narrate and share stories of nefarious gangsters, stunning graffiti, and fabulous parties while guests cruise past the Cape Florida Lighthouse, Key Biscayne, and the City of Miami.

STAR FAMILY COACHING PRESENTS

No-Drama Parenting: A Crash Course in Stress Free Parenting

Being a parent is often one of the most rewarding and challenging stages we can go through in life. While some parents are fortunate to have strong family support networks in place, other parents can find parenting to be stressful, isolating, and sometimes even chaotic.
Parenthood is a job like no other. Yes, there can be countless beautiful, rewarding and fulfilling moments, but there are also those occasions when we find ourselves becoming frustrated, confused, enraged, saddened, overwhelmed and completely stressed out.
Parenting is the most under-appreciated job of all time. It's also one of those few stages of life where we can receive little or no training for.
If you have ever found yourself overwhelmed, stressed or in need of some practical parenting advice for navigating your way through the highs and lows of family life, No-Drama Parenting: A Crash Course in Stress Free Parenting, is here to support you and to help you build a strong relationship with your child, whatever their age.
No-Drama Parenting: A Crash Course in Stress-Free Parenting will give you a foundational understanding of human and child development. It offers an easy-to-follow framework that you can act immediately to achieve the short and long-term family results that you hope for.

Throughout this comprehensive training, we will explore how to:
  • Develop your child's motivation, co-operation, and confidence
  • Make home life more harmonious & reduce stressful moments
  • Improve your emotional connection with children/family members
  • How to respond constructively to unwanted behaviors & attitudes
  • How to formulate, communicate & follow through on rules consistently
  • Develop skills for fostering independence and healthy lifestyle habits
  • Assess whether your expectations of your children are realistic & helpful
  • Respond appropriately when your children push your buttons!
  • And much, much more...

BOOK CLUB:
The Magic, Illusion & Unbelievable Truth of Youth League Sports
Looking at the culture of Youth League Sports and the relationship between adults and children is merely a microcosm of the misunderstanding adults have about what children need. The reasons why parents and coaches are miscommunicating and the impacts of these misunderstandings are exposed in this book. There are valid reasons why we have gotten it wrong for so long. There is layer upon layer of illusions illustrated within these pages that explain why it is we can not see the truth. It is as if a grand Magician is performing the perfect illusion yet the magician turns out to be us and we don't even know it. 

The Magic, Illusion and Unbelievable truth details over 40 assumptions based perceptions, that cause Coaches and Parents to believe they are doing the right and the best thing for children. And the Unbelievable truth that despite the mountain of data, years of science made available to the public that proves that we are not close to doing the right or best by our children, we still due to these illusions, continue to behave in ways that do more harm than help. 

This book details the history of Youth Sports, back to a time when we did do the right and best thing for children, through the period of when we changed our focus and things began to go wrong. It looks at various models used over the past 150 years of youth league sports. And it highlights the ongoing debate between specialization versus diversification. 

We use resources from over 150 sources- research, polls, studies, expert opinions, articles written by the leading experts in child sports interaction. These studies are backed by some of the biggest institutions in the world. From Ivy League schools to the Carnegie Insititute. Michigan State University, George Washington University, and the University of Calgary are merely three of the dozens that have public reports that were used for the making of this book. The Aspen Insititute, the Women's Sports Foundation and a number of US Goverment departments also make up much of the content of this book. This book is NOT opinion based. It is fact-based. And the unbelievable truth is that even with facts, people we still choose to do the wrong thing and even more unbelievable is that they will choose the wrong thing for their children. This shocking almost absurd truth flies in the face of how we would imagine parents behave. As parents, we want the best for our children yet, in general, we seem ill-prepared to be parents and certainly, we are misguided about how to direct our children when it comes to many areas of their life including youth sports. 

The good news is that there are proven effective methods available to us, and we have many examples that go all the way back to the birth of youth sports to guide us. Today there places in the world where massive change has occurred and the results have been magical. A good kind of Magical. 

So come find out what how we can do better by our children. Pick up a copy of the Magic, Illusion & Unbelievable Truth of Youth League Sports and help us change our behavior for the better.
