The 7 O'Clock Bedtime: Early to bed, early to rise, makes a child healthy, playful, and wise
Discusses the positive impact of an early bedtime for children on the entire family, arguing adequate sleep for children promotes good health and allows parents to experience their own evening free time.82% (7)
You think parents don't get enough sleep? Inda Schaenen argues persuasively in this slim yet thought-provoking book that parents who have to wake their kids up every morning can't be the only ones suffering from sleep deprivation. She points to substantial pediatric evidence that sleep deprivation is a serious problem for children, with consequences ranging from grumpiness to (according to some experts) the exacerbation or even creation of disorders such as ADHD. And she insists that none of the activities consuming evening time are as important to a child as adequate rest.
For most of the book--including a final section full of recipes and tips--Schaenen is wearing her Mom hat. She details the daily mechanics of getting children to bed by 7:00 and talks at length about exceptions. The regime she follows, and recommends to parents, isn't easy: she plans the after-school snack for as close to 3:00 as she can get it, allows after-school play until 4:30, has dinner on the table at 5:00, starts the bathroom routine at 6:00, and settles in for storytime from 6:15 to 6:45. By 7:00, she's saying good night.
Of course many working parents may find her routine impossible. But Shaenen's main point sticks: if mornings are tense, you should be thinking long and hard about what family restructuring is necessary to ensure that your children are getting the rest they need. And, as she points out, the moms and dads who get an hour or two of downtime each evening are happier, saner, better parents. --Richard Farr
I remember the moment very clearly: I was looking at an X-ray of a woman's hand. She was suffering from Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD, also called osteoarthritis) and complaining of pain as well as loss of function in her hand. As I looked at the image I saw the usual indications of DJD: thinning of the disc spaces between her joints, bone spurs on her knuckles and joints, thickening of the tendons in her hands and arms and thinning of the bones. Then it hit me: This wasn't an inflammatory/degenerative condition as we had been taught in school. This was a healing crisis compensating for a loss of water! Causes of imbalance All conditions of imbalance, such as DJD, are triggered by four causes: Trauma (or injury), toxins, deficiency and stress. Usually, a body-wide condition like DJD is a combination of all these four factors to a greater or lesser extent. Current wisdom calls osteoarthritis and DJD "wear-and-tear" diseases. But that does not explain the healing process of osteoarthritis/DJD. It's true, there is some inflammation involved. The suffix "-itis" means inflammation; osteoarthritis is defined as an inflammatory condition of the bones (osteo) and joints (arthro). And there is some degeneration as well. DJD is defined as a deficiency of water in the discs and cartilage of the joint spaces. They dry out and shrink. Neither of these medical terms really describes the entire process of osteoarthritis/DJD. A new view, a new approach What triggered my change in viewpoint concerning DJD/osteoarthritis was seeing the healing process in the X-ray. The healing process is fueled by nutrients and guided by homeostasis. (Homeostasis is the Robin Hood principle of moving nutrients from one part of the body to another area where there is a more immediate need.) Homeostasis will try to stabilize your joints by fusing the bones together and thickening the tendons. Homeostasis robs calcium from the bones (hence, the thinning bones of arthritis) to thicken the tendons and therefore limit mobility and further injury. Homeostasis also uses this calcium to fuse your bones together in place of an unstable joint. That is what bone spurs are: your body's attempt to stabilize an unstable joint by fusing the bones together. That is a healing process, not a degenerative process. It requires a new theory to replace a view that is too limited. That is important because our belief in our ability to heal allows us to have hope in the healing process and wellness itself. In with the new... All conditions of imbalance are triggered by four causes: Trauma or injury, toxins, deficiency and stress. DJD is a combination of all these four factors. The new theory of DJD goes like this: Toxins in our environment are detoxified in our liver by a process called sulfation. Sulfation requires dietary sulfur from foods like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, mustard and turnip greens, etc. If we are exposed to toxins and don't eat enough dietary sulfur, our detoxification process will rob sulfur from our joints to neutralize poisons. When the sulfur comes out of our joints, they can no longer hold water and begin the process of degeneration. Immediately, our body begins the healing process: as the cartilage dries out, we grow thicker tendons as well as bone spurs to stabilize the joint. This is accomplished through the judicious use of inflammation; therefore, any remedy for DJD needs to focus the inflammation and target only runaway inflammation to facilitate focused inflammation and healing of the joints. (Nopalea can help with inflammation!) The thicker tendons and the pain of inflammation limit our range of motion and prevent us from injuring this unstable joint. Eventually, the bone spurs grow together and fuse the joint completely. The healing is complete; the joint is stable. Benefiting from a changed view How does this new description of osteoarthritis/DJD help us? First, this view is in harmony with the language of healing. The better we become at listening, the greater our chance of understanding. Next, it allows us to understand our body better. The more we understand, the easier it is to work along with our healing processes. Finally, knowledge brings with it hope for an improved condition. Hope is the essential element of positive change![1/365] An Apple A Day
Welcome to the new set :) Everyone knows the common phrase "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." So the name was inspired by the set, but not the picture. Credit goes to Harris Teeter for that. I took this picture on the first day that I got my new camera and my dad pretty much loves it. Even though he's slightly allergic to apples...which stinks because apples are amazing, and you just can't beat a good apple pie. So, go eat an apple. But anyways, I'm supposed to talk about my day or something I guess? I think today was a pretty good day: 1. I can finally upload to flickr again! and I'm starting this kind of 365 2. We had the messed up schedule for SOLs which was good and bad. We had 8th period first (2 hours of french in the morning with a wayy too energetic teacher is...not for the morning) then 7 flex (we looked at nice and not so nice cars) and then 6 (we watched a movie!) and then 2nd (trig quiz, but it was easy and the whole class in general was funny...plus there's this kid *cough cough* elizabeth *coughhh* and he makes it even funnier) 3. I have like no homework. Except for a bio test which was apparently easy... 4. So I can read a new book that I started (props to Sydney!) and... 5. Only 4 more weeks left of school!!!! althought I might miss some people...my math class proved that... 6. It's supposed to thunderstorm! :) 7. Lie to Me* starts back up in less than a week! :D (alright i'll stop listing stuff now...) Tomorrow, however, I am scared for the history SOL. no joke. We'll see how that goes.... (and i have capitalization issues, i know) So that was the boring summary of today :) Will be back tomorrow with another picture Tuesday, June 1, 2010 End of Day 1. woot!
From a distinguished clinician, pioneer in working with behaviorally challenging kids, and author of the acclaimed The Explosive Child comes a groundbreaking approach for understanding and helping these kids and transforming school discipline.Related topics:
Frequent visits to the principal's office. Detentions. Suspensions. Expulsions. These are the established tools of school discipline for kids who don't abide by school rules, have a hard time getting along with other kids, don't seem to respect authority, don't seem interested in learning, and are disrupting the learning of their classmates. But there's a big problem with these strategies: They are ineffective for most of the students to whom they are applied.
It's time for a change in course.
Here, Dr. Ross W. Greene presents an enlightened, clear-cut, and practical alternative. Relying on research from the neurosciences, Dr. Greene offers a new conceptual framework for understanding the difficulties of kids with behavioral challenges and explains why traditional discipline isn't effective at addressing these difficulties. Emphasizing the revolutionarily simple and positive notion that kids do well if they can, he persuasively argues that kids with behavioral challenges are not attention-seeking, manipulative, limit-testing, coercive, or unmotivated, but that they lack the skills to behave adaptively. And when adults recognize the true factors underlying difficult behavior and teach kids the skills in increments they can handle, the results are astounding: The kids overcome their obstacles; the frustration of teachers, parents, and classmates diminishes; and the well-being and learning of all students are enhanced.
In Lost at School, Dr. Greene describes how his road-tested, evidence-based approach -- called Collaborative Problem Solving -- can help challenging kids at school.
His lively, compelling narrative includes:
• tools to identify the triggers and lagging skills underlying challenging behavior.
• explicit guidance on how to radically improve interactions with challenging kids -- along with many examples showing how it's done.
• dialogues, Q & A's, and the story, which runs through the book, of one child and his teachers, parents, and school.
• practical guidance for successful planning and collaboration among teachers, parents, administrations, and kids.
Backed by years of experience and research, and written with a powerful sense of hope and achievable change, Lost at School gives teachers and parents the realistic strategies and information to impact the classroom experience of every challenging kid.
