Children in today’s world have a spotlight shining on them – the questionable safety of vaccines, polluted food, junk food, medications (prescribed too young), low-quality school lunches, sweetener addictions, obesity, autism, diabetes, MS and adult diseases now plague our youth.
No doubt, there is much to address, and none of this is an easy fix because we have some very sour politics to neutralize – politics backed by Big Pharma and Big Agra.
That said, we can turn this around – one issue at a time.
Here are some tips that any parent can apply to their children’s well-being:
- Don’t use aspartame and any diet sweeteners when pregnant – aspartame’s by-products penetrate the placenta;
- Don’t eat GMO or processed foods when pregnant; eat raw and wholesome foods because your baby will receive those nutrients before you do;
- Drink plenty of water and never, never, ever drink a diet drink;
- Avoid taking any medications (if possible); your baby will get medicated, too;
- Opt out of all vaccines given to your newborn, and some are injected just minutes after birth; evidence that vaccines cause autism has been well documented for decades, and until this “issue” is resolved, err on the side of caution; don’t allow doctors or hospitals to bully you;
- Select an OB/GYN and pediatrician who are open-minded and willing to be cautious for your baby’s well-being; shop your doc, I always say, especially if your doctor is stubborn, arrogant, or judgmental;
- Research vaccinations carefully, and if vaccinating your child, wait until they are at least 24 months of age; this allows their brain stem time to develop, their immune system time to mature, and may lessen their chances of having a permanent adverse reaction to modern-day vaccines, such as autism from the MMR vaccine;
- If vaccinating, split up the vaccines and the doses; if your pediatrician is not willing to do this, then find a doctor who is willing to work with you;
- If your state or country demands vaccinations for your child against your will, move to a location that is less corrupt; definitely do no re-elect your current state or country leaders supporting such laws;
- If your school won’t work with your expectations, change schools or home school.
- Today, public schools are merely businesses seeking cash flow and government funding; hence, the cheaper quality of school lunches and the money that is made from the vending machines rattling in school hallways are more important to the administrators than the welfare of the students;
- Give parental permission for your child to go to the bathroom as often as needed; a healthy child will urinate every 30 -45 minutes when properly hydrated, especially in the morning when the body is sweeping waste from the night before; teaching children to “hold” their urge to go to the bathroom is unhealthy;
- Allow your child to have a healthy snack every school day around 10:00 AM and again around 2:00 PM; snacking and grazing throughout the day balances blood sugar, and this enhances learning;
- Provide your child a healthy snack after school; healthy children are hungry all of the time; whole foods do not cause weight gain – drive thru/fast food/junk food/processed food are what cause obesity and the lack of energy;
Colas – Regular and Diet:
- When it comes to drinking colas – diet or regular – teach your child the same discipline you teach them about drinking alcohol;
- No aspartame or diet drinks of any kind; watch out for aspartame and chemical sweeteners in flavored waters and powdered lemonade-type drinks; they are hidden in most gum, too;
- Teach your kids to drink primarily pure water, at least 64 ounces a day (8 cups or 1.892 liters); this will make them urinate more, but that’s the point;
- A cola can be a treat; shop for the more natural colas such as Reeds Ginger Ale® or La Croix®;
- Be realistic – if you deny your child an occasional cola, they may begin to sneak them, so keep good communication open;
- Have fresh tea available in the fridge at all times; green tea, black chai tea, naturally flavored tea with lemon, raspberry, ginger, or cinnamon (to name a few goodies);
- If you don’t want your children drinking colas or alcohol under any circumstances, then you stop drinking them; have a cola, a glass of wine or an alcoholic beverage after the kids go to bed;
- It’s OK to say NO!, and when you say No!, explain WHY; this is an opportunity to teach your child;
- Discipline with love and concern; kindness is a more effective teacher than negativity;
- Teach your children that it’s OK to say no to their friends; this builds confidence and self-esteem; peer pressure is deadly these days;
- You, as a parent, can say NO to your doctors (pushing vaccines), to school administrators (pushing vaccines), teachers (pushing meds), and community leaders if you do not agree with superseding decisions that affect your child.
Raising a child in today’s world is more challenging than ever.
Defend your children’s welfare as your #1 priority, but it always was #1, so don’t get bullied.
Let’s all protect the next generation from harm, greed, and malpractice.
