How could we help our children resist today's evil cultural messages?

How could we  help our children resist today's evil cultural messages?

Love them: Young people are going to explore. Set an example in your own life. For me, "evil" is hating others without any real reason, treating others unfairly, demanding things for which you haven't worked, defining yourself in terms of owning worthless things. If you peers admire you for the life you live, your children will usually follow your example, though every young person makes some mistakes. ...Read more

Can you suggest any alternative methods to spanking for disciplining children?

Can you suggest any alternative methods to spanking for disciplining children?

Time-out technique: Spanking stops undesireable behavior at that moment, but it doesn't teach children not to repeat the behavior. Putting children in time-out immediately and consistently after the undesireable behavior is more likely to teach them self-control. It takes time, often months, to work, but the long-term benefits to both the child and caregiver are much greater than what you get with spanking. ...Read more

What does add do to young children. And how can I help them?

What does add do to young children. And how can I help them?

Hyperactivity: Attention deficity disorder (not the hyperactive part) is almost unheard of before 6 or 7 years old. Not because it isn't there, but it is almost impossible to diagnose. We do see hyperactivity disorders in younger children from time to time, and generally giving them opportunity to exercise, making sure they get sleep, avoiding stimulants helps. If not, or if it's worsening, have them evaluated. ...Read more

What tends to trigger anger outbursts in children?

What tends to trigger anger outbursts in children?

Setting no limits: Children need boundaries. When none are given, they become spoiled, angry, out of control, hating the world and everyone in it. Responding to every outburst with a calm, "no" and a reasonable punishment will reinforce there are limits/boundaries that are not to be crossed. They will learn not to do that. Calm patience and consistency is all you need. More about teaching the adult then the child. ...Read more

What are the views on vaccinating children?

Best protection!: Vaccines have been scrutinized in the lab and the media about their safety, and each time they win! vaccines have saved the lives of thousands of children over the years and have been proven to be safe. I am saddened that there even is a controversy, since it seems fabricated on "feelings" and not facts. ...Read more

What is the best way to dispose of medications when there are small children around?

Return to pharmacy: Whether or not there are small kids around, unused prescription medicines should be returned to the pharmacy to be incinerated. Dumping them into the sink or toilet ends up putting more of those chemicals into our water supply, not a good idea. ...Read more
