Children’s Health – How to Help Kids Get Active

I saw an interesting post on Facebook from a relative. Her children had been given iPads at school… to be brought home. They were to use them for homework assignments. The parents had to pay a fee in case the child lost or damaged the computer. The parents also weren’t given a choice.

You would think that we have enough problems getting our children active after classtime is over without demanding the use of a piece of equipment. You know it’s not going to be used by one teacher. All of them will do it. All of my teachers did it back in the old days when we had to go to the library.

Talk to the teachers: This is not the time to be a helicopter parent, but it is something that should be discussed between the parents and the teachers. There are many issues that need to be addressed including the problem of too much homework. Even with the internet writing six papers would be hard for any child and depending on the age and type of class it is a possibility.

Limits: These teaching devices are not going to just be used for homework. The world is available and once they are done with the classroom assignments the internet beckons. This is where we have to step in and get our children up and moving. Set a limit as to how long they can play so they have time to be active.

Example: We need to lead by example. After going over the program with the teachers and setting limits for our children we need to set limits for ourselves and get active. Spend a half an hour playing catch (girls like it, too). Go for a family walk. Let the kids see that this is how to live a healthy lifestyle.

Once we have the internet in our lives it’s very easy to get into bad habits. Not being active is one of them.

The Parent-Child Relationship – How to Earn and Keep Your Children’s Trust

Trust is an extremely powerful concept. It takes time to build yet can be broken within seconds. Once broken, it takes far more time to rebuild it than it did to establish it in the first place. An honest relationship with open communication is imperative between parent and child, with the relationship of trust probably being the hardest one to establish. Aside from love, trust is the most important and strongest element you can establish with your children. If they can trust and believe in you, they will model that and become trustworthy. However, if they can’t trust and believe in you, they lose all faith in humanity and grow to have no respect for the bonds of trust.

Before writing this article, I asked my own children, “Do you trust me? I mean, do you really trust me?” What I learned from their answers and reasoning is that what creates trust from a parent’s perspective differs than from a child’s perspective. Parents have a hard time trusting children because of their sometimes dishonest and sneaky nature. However, if children are raised to value honesty, they will talk openly with parents and not feel the need to sneak around or lie. This allows parents to be informed and make informed choices when guiding children along life’s road. But I can guarantee you, if children don’t trust their parents for whatever reason, they will do everything they can to keep mom and dad in the dark. If you want to know what your children are doing, they need to be able to trust you enough to let you in on it. With that in mind, from the perspective of a child (which is the most important one because it is the one we, as parents, are trying to establish), here are the 5 most effective ways for a parent to earn a child’s trust:

1. Keep your word. Keeping your word about everything possible, no matter how small, is imperative. When parents tell a child they are going to do something, they need to make sure to follow through and do it. A pattern of promises kept lets children know that when mom or dad says something, they can take it to the bank. They trust that your word is as good as gold. In our home, we try to abide by the old principle, “Your word is your bond.” If you say you’re going to do something, do it. If you say something will happen, it needs to happen. But if you say something will be and repeatedly fail on your promises, your children will quickly learn that they can’t trust a word you say. Broken promises are a good way to lose valuable trust.

2. Be honest. Sure, parents sometimes must tell a little “white lie” to protect their children. But when it comes to important and meaningful questions, the best policy is to be honest, even if you have to sugar-coat it a little. Being honest does two things: It lets the child know that your answers are truthful, allowing them to be able to act upon them with confidence, and it sends the child the message that honesty, no matter how difficult it can sometimes be, is the right thing to do. By believing in honesty by seeing your example, children grow to be honest in return, allowing you to know they are where they say they are and they’re doing what they said they would be doing. Honesty without distorted repercussion establishes a child’s trust that they can talk to parents about anything.

3. Keep your cool. Parents who are approachable about sensitive issues build trust with the child. If a child knows he can come to you and you won’t “flip out” over something that warrants attention, he will trust you to help him come up with solutions and will trust your guidance through the situation. Parents who fly off the handle about issue after issue quickly send the message that they can’t be trusted to hear the child because the child is afraid of yelling, screaming, beating, and punishment. Parents who lose their cool and throw judgment at the child teach the child never to come back with an issue again. When the child can’t trust the parent to listen calmly, they turn to their inexperienced friends instead, and those are the last people you want guiding your child.

4. Be there for them. When kids know that mom and dad will be there for them, supporting them through crisis after crisis, they develop a bond of trust that is critical to open communication. My daughter said, “You were always there for me. Right or wrong, I knew you’d be right there.” By her knowing that I was on her team, even if we did have private conversations pointing out what she did wrong, she trusted that I was reliable. She knew that even when nobody else was there, I was, allowing her to put her full faith and trust in me. And since she trusted me, she shared a lot more with me than other girls did with their parents.

5. Be a role model. Don’t do anything sneaky or wrong that you wouldn’t raise your kids to do. Cheating, stealing, and disrespecting authority are behaviors your child will emulate. When a child hears you talk about trustworthy behavior, then sees you doing things that are completely contradictory to what you preached, they learn that if YOU can’t be trusted to be a good person, it’s okay for them to drop the efforts that establish trust, too. Exemplary behavior teaches lessons and establishes trust in your integrity. Poor, unacceptable behavior teaches a double standard, which is the same as being two-faced, and that’s the best way to lose your integrity and trust from your children.

Children watch how we, as parents, behave. If we keep our word, are honest, remain calm, are steadfast, and are well-behaved as we ask them to be, they learn that we can be trusted under all circumstances. And this level of trust, while hard to establish, is critical in raising children through the confusing years of adolescence. If you lay the groundwork for trust early, keep it strong through adolescence, and continue to respect it into adulthood, your children will never take anything you say or do with a grain of salt. Establish trust and you’re on your way to raising respectful, honest, moral human beings. Fail to be trustworthy and you can bet your children are up to way more than you know. As for me, I’d rather have trust and know what’s going on than be a lying dictator and be left in the dark. Aside from love, which is inherent, trust is the hardest, yet most valuable bond available when guiding children through the smoke and mirrors of life.

How to Improve Children’s IQ

Parents need to realize the important role they play in the overall development of their children’s intelligence. Parents can positively influence every aspect of a child’s life, including their I.Q. – (Intelligence Quotient). Recent research has suggested that it is possible to improve intelligence in children. The activities listed in this article focus on developing a child’s mental faculties.

We will examine how the I.Q. can be influenced by several factors. Some of the factors include environment, overall health, reading, and parental influences.

One of the biggest contributors to improving a child’s I.Q. is the creation of a home that is educationally stimulating. This can start as early as when the child is still in the mother’s womb. It involves reading and talking to the fetus daily. After birth and as the child grows older, the reading should continue, especially at bedtime. Reading is so important. Parents need to understand that children should be encouraged to read at all times. Children should read several books a month, at least 3-4. This way their intelligence can increase with the knowledge they gain by reading a variety of subjects. Do not limit a child’s reading to one subject. Allow them, within reason, to explore a variety of subjects and interests. In addition to reading, singing songs or playing music that is void of profane language and haunting rhythms and lyrics is stimulating for infants and young children.

Their environment should be conducive to progress at all times. That can be done by being in a good school, having positive and intelligent friends, participating in activities that are challenging, and a home environment where educational achievement in stressed. Children should be encouraged to exchange ideas, listen to people and give an intelligent opinion on age appropriate topics without the fear of repercussions from adults. Parents should encourage their children to talk and not be afraid to initiate productive conversation.

Children should always be involved in several activities, both physical and mental. This will help boost the blood flow to different parts of the body including the brain and nervous system. Physical activities will promote clear thinking, stimulate brain activity, and increase concentration. Continuous physical activity will also help to develop gross motor skills, which will allow the body to function properly and give children more endurance for their daily activities.

There are several games and activities, which can help improve I.Q. They include computer games, chess, checkers, backgammon or any board games – which will help children utilize mental strategies, and critical thinking skills which are needed in school. In addition children can learn how to play an instrument which is a great way to help eye and hand coordination as well as improve reading and concentration skills When parents purchase toys for their children, they should purchase those that require mental stimulation as well as physical exertion. These challenges will help improve a child’s I.Q. level.

Children should start early taking I.Q. tests to see how intelligent they are. The test can also be used to see what subject areas the child needs to focus on for improvement. Parents can go online and find several free I.Q. tests that only require carefully reading the directions before administering the exam. When taking these tests, parents should make sure that the child has an area conducive to test-taking, and is quiet and peaceful with no distractions.

The following list is a summary of some additional things that can be helpful with improving a child’s I.Q. level:

Note: P = Parent Focus / C = Child Focus / P-C = Parent and Child Focus

P-C Eat plenty of foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids for brain development and function.

One excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids is fish – salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna, halibut, and herring; flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, canola oil, soybeans, soybean oil, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin seed oil, walnuts, and walnut seed oil, to name a few.

Online Resource: University of Maryland Medical Center http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/omega-3

P Breastfeeding is important for supplying lots of vitamins and nutrients if the mother is eating a well balanced diet. Otherwise, supplements will need to be provided to assist with the diet.

P-C Eat plenty of vegetables, and fruits. Approximately 5 servings per day.

C Keep children away from lead to prevent lead poisoning. This is leading cause of mental deficiencies often found in lead-based paints.

P-C Daily exercise will promote intelligence. This promotes blood flow not only to the brain, but also to other vital organs of the body.

P Avoid smoking and consuming alcohol while pregnant. There is a direct link to lung cancer from smoking/chewing tobacco products and fetal alcohol syndrome from excessive amounts of alcohol.

C Learn to play some kind of instrument at a young age. This promotes eye-hand coordination and brain concentration.

P Read to and with your child daily and/or at bedtime. This promotes shared, quality time with your child, intellectual stimulation and reading comprehension.

C Children should read for themselves everyday other than at school. This promotes intellectual stimulation and reading comprehension.

P-C Parents should play creative and mind/physically challenging games with their children. This included the new Wii Game.

P Introduce games that have math, spelling, grammar, memorization and logic. This promotes intellectual stimulation and reading comprehension.

P-C Limit mindless, unsupervised television watching.

P-C Limit the amount of sugar and caffeinated beverages that are consumed.

P-C Make breakfast a mandatory meal for all members of the household.

P-C Eat the evening meal together as often as possible to discuss the day’s events. Sharing time is important to let each other feel that they are a contributing member of the family unit. Discussion stimulates brain development.

P-C Repetition of facts is needed for some areas of skill development. For example: repeated practice/review of multiplication facts will promote learning and skill acquisition.

Increasing a child’s I.Q. is possible if the parent is willing to work with that child. Parents should be patient when working with their children. The I.Q. does not increase overnight. We are all blessed with gifts from God and there may be a limit to what a person can achieve. If parents are ready to provide good nutrition; sound sleep, uninterrupted sleep; enough exercise opportunities, and additional brain boosting activities, children can and will improve their I.Q. level.

Best Children’s Books: Top Ten Early Readers

The period during which children actually learn how to read is so crucial. Helping them learn to read using books they will love will motivate them to rise to the task and ask for ever more books. The selected books span the range from those learning to read their first words to those who want an increasing challenge.

1) Moo Baa La La, by Sandra Boynton: This little book helps young children to increase their vocabulary by saying words that mimic animal sounds. Many young children adore this book. As they memorize it, you can say the first part of each page and your child will read the second.

2) Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, by Bill Martin: Kids love this book because it has soul. They love saying words with spunk and rhythm. The nonsense verse thrills kids with its deceptively simple narrative and with the repeating of such catchy phrases as “skit skat skoodle doot.” The bold color scheme matches the kooky mood perfectly. Children love seeing the familiar alphabet transported into this madcap adventure.

3) You Read to Me; I’ll Read to You: Very Short Fairy Tales to Read Together, by Mary Ann Hoberman, These hilarious versions of the three bears, pigs and goats, plus a couple of princesses and one beanstalk make for a charming story set for two voices reading to one another. The cozy appeal of partnered reading and slightly quirky stories are snuggly enough to be read over and over.

4) Brown Bear, Brown Bear, by Bill Martin: It’s an excellent introductory book for colors, animals and words.This book is great for teaching basic sight words, because words like see appear often, kids are bound to learn these words. This is a wonderful book that all children should own. Very repetitive and children can read along with you.

5) Green Eggs and Ham, Dr. Seuss: These unforgettable fifty words stay with you forever. “I am Sam, Sam I am” begins this silly tale.

6) Winnie the Pooh, by A.A Milne: Of course, everyone knows that kids love Pooh. Some people swear that it’s better to forget other versions and find the reprinted version by Milne. There is a special charm the way Milne words and phrases the stories that may be missing in other renderings.

7) There is a Bird on Your Head, by Mo Willems: The story is funny, educational, and the drawings are simple but very effective. Willem’s stories might become a family favorite for you. Kids love the expressions on the faces of both characters.

8) Diary of a Worm, by Doreen Cronin: No child can resist the young worm in a baseball cap whose diary chronicles his daily adventures – whether it’s playing with his spider friend, teasing his sister, or doing the Hokey Pokey with his classmates. This book is educational, hilarious, and it takes kids on such a beautiful journey into the life of a worm.

9) How I Became a Pirate, Melinda Long: If your child dreams of treasure chests and wonders what a pirate’s life might be like, then sail away on a real pirate ship.

10) I Need My Monster, by Amanda Noll: This is a unique monster-in-my-room tale with the perfect balance of giggles and shivers. The author does a masterful job of defusing the typical jitters a child might have about monsters. Maybe your fearful child might even welcome this monster into her room.

Honorable Mention: The book, Tuesday, by David Wiesner only includes a few words but it is fantastic in sparking the imagination of young children. Let the kids spontaneously tell you their own version the second time through.

There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, by Simms Taback. The pictures help students decode words they otherwise may not know, thereby building their reading confidence

Animals Should Definitely not Wear Clothing, by Judi Barrett: Easy text to read and the belly-laugh illustrations make the book. It pictures various animals wearing clothing that would never suit them.:… sheep wearing a wool sweater, a giraffe wearing neck ties, a chicken wearing pants (Where does the egg go?), just to name a few. Kids love the story so much you may even get a little tired of hearing your child read it to you over and over.

Dental Tips for Children’s Oral Health

While oral sickness is easy to prevent, there are still lots of children that get tooth decay. Such kids often experience pain, find it hard to sleep, and at times, undergo major dental treatments – like tooth extraction with general anesthesia.

When a child gets cavities at a much younger age, it can be assumed that he/she will also develop cavities when his permanent teeth develop. For this reason, it is crucial for kids to have good oral hygiene habits when they are still very young.

Eat the Right Foods

Children should eat a variety of nutritious foods, especially in childhood when they are still going through the developing years. This is the time when their eating behavior is established. It is critical to encourage kids to have healthy eating habits that can lead to good oral health and welfare.

Provide children with different nutritious foods such as fruits, vegetables, natural yogurt and meat.

  • Refrain from giving them snacks in between meals, since it is the most vulnerable age, when they could acquire cavities.
  • Encourage them to drink lots of water (from at minimum of 1 liter/day to a maximum of 2 liters/day), particularly if you stay within an area with fluoride, to protect teeth from cavities.
  • Try your best to reduce your child’s intake of sugary drinks like sodas, energy drinks, fruit juices and syrups, since these sweet drinks can cause tooth decay.
  • Reduce their consumption of sweet drinks, particular in between meals.

Brush your teeth properly.

Brushing teeth using a proper technique is a must for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. Observing good oral hygiene at a much early age reduces the risk of acquiring gum disease at a later age. Teach them to brush their teeth at least twice daily – in the morning and in the evening, as well as after eating meals.

  • It is recommended for infants to use a soft toothbrush, and for children 18 months to 6 years to use toothpaste (in a pea-sized amount) with less fluoride.
  • Supervise your child (up to 7 years old) whenever he/she brushes his/her teeth.
  • Instead of rinsing the toothpaste, encourage your child to spit it out.

Observe Safety while Playing

Whenever your child plays contact sports like cricket, football or hockey, when their mouth is more prone to injury, he should use a mouth guard during games and workout. A mouth guard is often worn when playing sports, while other activities also require a face guard or helmet.

Practice Healthy Habits at an Early Age

It would benefit children to develop healthy habits early in life. Habits such as brushing teeth regularly, eating a nutritious diet and visiting a dentist regularly allow them to maintain good oral health. The moment the first tooth of your child appears until 1 year old, he/she should have oral health checked. Based on a child’s oral health, the dentist/pediatrician will recommend when to visit the dental clinic.

  • Whenever there is any dental problem, go immediately to the dentist to have it checked.
  • Make dental visits a part of your child’s normal routine.
  • Make a dental appointment early in the day, when your child is not yet tired.

Children’s Health – When Does Childhood Obesity Start?

Childhood obesity is a condition that afflicts the young in society, and can cause extreme health problems when cases are severe enough. Childhood obesity is the condition of a child having too much body fat, meaning their organs are working harder to do anything such as pump blood around their body, making them tire easily and generally feel unwell. There are many supposed causes of childhood obesity but the results are always the same, children suffering from obesity develop serious health problems later in life that affect their lives and the lives of those around them.

The most common cause of obesity in children is obesity in their parents. According to studies, having obese parents sets out being overweight as normal for children, meaning anyone smaller than their parents is abnormal, which is an easy concept to grasp. There are children with obese parents who are not themselves obese, and this can be just as common, although it is more common for parents of a standard height and weight to have children who aren’t obese.

The growing advancements in technology have been found to be contributing to the rate of childhood obesity as well. With more and more games consoles being released, children have little chance of ever getting outside if they want to stay on top of what’s popular and play the latest games. Parents must factor in the increasing number of games consoles and the games for them, or they’ll end up with children who sit in their room all day, every day and do nothing but play video games and suck all of the electricity out of the house in the process.

Any child that develops obesity will have been influenced somewhere to do something or be a certain way that has attributed to their weight problem. As already discussed, having overweight parents is a huge factor influencing whether a child will be obese, and so is whether or not they have access to the latest technology. These are factors within a parent’s control, and so is the amount of exercise a child receives on a daily basis.

Making the effort to take children outdoors or to somewhere they can play like an indoor play centre is imperative to help prevent childhood obesity. When parents don’t put the time in to care for their children, they won’t ever be able to say they have no idea why a child is obese, and why they haven’t been getting the exercise essential to their health.

How Fish Oil Can Help Improve Children’s Brain Function

Parents want the best for their children. They would feed their kids with whatever that is healthy and is beneficial for their health. Hence, in recent years, many parents have jumped onto the bandwagon of feeding their kids fish oil capsules. Known for its Omega 3 properties, fish oil is touted to help the children to improve their brain function.

Omega 3 fatty acids are found naturally in fish like sardines, salmon and mackerel. However, these fish are seldom in the modern diets of children, therefore most children are deficient in Omega 3. Studies have shown that taking this beneficial supplement help children to boost their brain power and improve their reading skills, in turn boosting their confidence.

Researchers have highlighted its benefits of to the brain, particularly so for children with learning or behavioral difficulties. In cases where children have dyslexia, autism or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), their brains will need more fatty acids than the average kid. With the introduction of Omega 3 into their diet will help them to have improved concentration and a reduction in disruptive behavior.

Omega 3 that is present in this supplement is needed for the brain and nervous system to function and develop normally. The fatty acids include docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Development of your kid’s brain start from the time when your baby is still in the womb. Fish oil supplements should also be included in the pregnant women’s diet for the baby to develop their brain.

DHA, being the most highly concentrated fats in the brain, plays a pivotal role in the brain function and structure. As our body cannot make this fatty acid, it must be consumed as part of our diet. Hence the it is a great supplement if your children do not eat enough fish. The parts of the brain that Omega 3 is said to improve are the visual processing component as well as motor control.

Brain function and health is not only about intelligence quotient, it is also the center of feeling and behavior. Some children have bleak and unhealthy images in their minds which can lead to depression, low self-esteem and mood instability. The Essential Fatty Acids from fish oil can help to maintain an equilibrium within this complex interconnections between the brain and stress hormones. Intake of fish oil can help these children improve their behavior and social interaction with their peers.

Other than having benefits to your children’s brain function, fish oil also helps in improving the heart function. Do take note if your kids are suffering from symptoms like dry skin and hair and excessive thirst, they may be lacking Omega 3 in the diet. Though it has fantastic effects on your children’s health and body, do bear in mind that it has to be balanced with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Take this simple step to add this beneficial supplements to your child’s diet and you could be well on the way to support them to become the best that they can be!
