Family & Parenting

by Thomas Hobson

Have you ever seen one of those prepubescent beauty queens? You know, the ones whose moms dress them up like adult women, bouffant their hair, and give them make-up to make it look like they have 18-year-old heads on 5-year-old bodies? We're appalled...

Editor's Note: Why do we label young children with terms like "aggressive" or "violent" when they're simply exploring their world? Teacher Tom examines this topic in depth and I agree, let's stop labeling young boys as "violent" and allow them a healthy exploration of their power.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We came across this traditional song that we believe majority of all adults today sang as children. So now we'd like to pass it on the children of today. This fun interactive song teaches great motor skills, listening and following skills. Grab the kids, turn up the volume and join in the fun together.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: After looking through quite a few kids Zumba videos we found this one to be the least intimidating. Kids can follow along, get some exercise all from the comfort of their living room. We did Zumba for a year and had a fabulous time.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: There is so much more that we can give these kids besides prescriptions, IEP meetings and doctor visits. I am a parent of a special needs child... I speak from experience. Let meditation/mindfulness into your life, your schools... and see the magic that can happen to all kids. And, while you're at it, truly look at the nutritional value of your child's school lunch program (check out an article here about just that). Food, like meditation, is also brain power. Our kids deserve all the brain zing a ding ding they can get.

How much do you know about what your kids are doing online? Do you monitor their usage on their smart devices and on computers? Do you check usage or use filters to keep your kids from accessing information that might be inappropriate? Or do you just have honest conversations with under-age kids about smart online use?  


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Keeping kids safe online should be a top priority of parents in this day and age. This info graphic breaks down what social media platforms kids, tweens and teens like to use and how to keep them safe. Kids need parental super vision when it comes to the online world just like they do in the offline world.
