What do I do when my child has a tantrum in the grocery store?

What do I do when my child has a tantrum in the grocery store?

Calm and assertive: Get down on his level and let him know what you need and expect out of him BEFORE you enter the store. Then if behavior isn't as expected follow thru with a pre-determined action, i.e. taking him to the car for a couple minutes. Most important - be prepared to leave if behavior is bad - don't allow bad behavior or reward it just because you have errands or are embarrassed. ...Read more

My child is having a tantrums in a grocery what should I do?

My child is having a tantrums in a grocery what should I do?

Before you go, tell: your child what behavior you want, the reward for complying & the consequence for not, at his language level. Make short trips to " catch him being good." If he tantrums, pick him up from behind; don't talk or make eye contact ; put him in time out in the car, if cool. Stay outside the car with your back turned. When he's quiet, set timer for 1 min/yr of age. Go back in, repeat till he quits. ...Read more

Can bronchitis be caught from a grocery store or mall?

Can bronchitis be caught from a grocery store or mall?

Yes: I agree with dr. Carroll. Infectious forms of bronchitis are transmitted via airborne particles. This would be especially prevalent in situations where the air is recirculated. Airplanes, closed buildings, etc. Would be examples of this situation. I always get concerned when one passenger in an airplane is coughing because 70-80% of the air in a plane is recirculated. ...Read more

What should I buy at the grocery store to stay healthy? Which foods are superfoods?

What should I buy at the grocery store to stay healthy? Which foods are superfoods?

No such thing: Claims that some particular item is a "superfood" is entertainment. They're lying to you. You don't see the NIH cafeteria offering "superfoods" and trust me, the research piranhas know the score. Avoid the very greasy, very sugary, and very salty stuff. Choose a good variety, don't overeat, and recognize that physical fitness is far more important in the long run than food choices. ...Read more

Is it bad not to wash organic carrots from the grocery store if they have dirt/soil on what are health risks?

Is it bad not to wash organic carrots from the grocery store if they have dirt/soil on what are health risks?

Yes!!! All produce: should be thoroughly rinsed & cleaned with a vegetable scrubber. I prefer this to peeling since many nutrients are on the skin. Also remove the outer leaves of cabbage and other leaf veggies & cut the bottoms off. I usually wait until I'm about ready to prepare produce to rinse it; otherwise the moisture makes it soggy. Contaminated produce can cause food-borne illness & exposure to pesticides. ...Read more

Healthy food: The best way to see what foods are good, not so good, and bad can be found on the Internet as "NuVal". This will list 100 items with the dietary value ranging from zero (very bad) to 100 (very good). You will not find these numbers on any item in the food store but print the list of 100 items and take it with you. ...Read more
