Continued from part 1 of this article…..

motherbabyyogaLet’s explore the connection between parent and child and why this phenomenon seems to exist. Almost from the moment your child is born they recognize you. They are drawn to you. You develop mom or dad ears that allow you to hear them from a sound sleep. You have a connection that lets you know if they are happy or sad and even if they need you before they tell you. You can feel the mood your child is in even before they tell you what is going on. All of this is possible from an energetic connection that is formed at conception. This connection does not just allow helpful information to be shared. It also creates a link in which energy is shared between child and parent.

Exploring this theory further, you can see synchronicities between disharmonies that appear different, but are in reality only appearing different due to the layer of the energetic field that they show themselves. A parent who feels stuck or unable to move forward in life may have a child with issues in their lower extremities (legs, feet, ect.). A parent unable to grasp life may have a child with arm, hand or finger disharmonies. At first glance this may seem unrelated, however we also must consider that the child’s life experiences affect their energetic field as well, thus their vulnerabilities can appear in different layers of their etheric field-each governing a different part of the whole person. (body/mind/spirit) Depending on the layer of the etheric field that is most vulnerable, the disharmony can show itself to be physical, mental or emotional.

The human energetic field is made up of layers that govern our being. Life experiences can strengthen or weaken these layers. As stated, our connection to others can affect your energy as well. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects are all represented within these layers. As vulnerabilities occur, if this energetic change is left unattended it can affect others we are connected to as well as other layers within our own energy.

We are human. We will get aches, pains and other mind/body/spirit disharmonies that are not in our control. Control what you can and focus on maintaining positive energy. If this energetic connection exists, what does this mean? Take care of yourself and you will also be caring for your child. Relieve your stress; have babies that sleep through the night. Do you want well-balanced grounded children? Exercise and be grounded yourself. The positive changes you make today may impact your child and even your grandchildren someday. You will be surprised at the balanced household you can create.

Your Energy Could Be Affecting Your Child – Part 1

womantwistingEnergy makes up all things. If you are vibrating negative energy, it may be impacting your child without you even realizing it. Individuals are overworked, stressed and spread too thin at times. Everyone has heard stress is not good for your health, but did you know your stress could be affecting your child’s health too? The link between child and parent’s energy field does not stop with stress levels. They may take on physical, emotional, and/or even spiritual disharmonies all as a result of the energy you may not even know you are vibrating. For purposes of this article, we will refer to any “disease”, ache, pain, emotional distress, or “abnormality” as simply a “disharmony”.

As an energy worker, I receive calls from parents who decide to “give energy work a try” as a last ditch effort to solve their child’s concerns. Often, I find that these children are just simply in one way or another mirroring the disharmony of their own parents. Children sometimes take on pain similar to that of what a parent may be experiencing. I often suggest that both child and parent(s) undergo energy work to complement the child’s challenges if it is an acute concern for this reason.

It is interesting to speak with parents regarding the disharmonies of their children. While they describe the pain their child is feeling, they may be holding the very spot on themselves that is the child’s area of concern; soon divulging that they themselves developed the same issue as a child about their age. Perhaps, although you have always tried to hide your worry from your children, you find that your children are becoming worriers too. Maybe the economy has you developing issues with anxiety and now your son/daughter is showing signs of this disharmony as well. Phobias that you may have never discussed with your children may show themselves-like fear of heights, birds, closed in places. We call this hereditary most often, but what if it was in your energy rather than just your genes? Even within the philosophies of energy work we are brought back to the age old question of nature vs nurture. Nature, being dna-the child’s genetic makeup, while nurture, in this case being represented by the energy of their parents. If this statement holds true, this would also support why adopted children sometimes develop their adoptive parent’s “hereditary” conditions or traits.

What if leaving your negative emotions at the door when you get home allowed parents to positively impact their child’s health? There are countless studies that support that having a positive mindset can make the difference between surviving a serious illness and succumbing to it. Parents set the tone for the household. Positive parents have uplifting homes. Positive moods are said to build the immune system.

What Should You Do If You Think Your Child Has Vision Problems?

Share Button

groupkidsAs a parent, your primary goal is to ensure that your kids have the assistance and guidance they need to become successful, independent adults. You’re driven to look after them, keep them safe and treat any problems that may crop up along the way. Treating the occasional flu or a bout with chicken pox is one thing, but how do you treat a problem if you’re not quite sure that it exists? One of the more difficult issues for parents to accurately identify, especially in very young children, is problems with vision. Unless your child is actively squinting when she tries to focus on an object or is holding a book too close to her face for comfort, you may not be able to spot the signs of vision problems if you’re not well-versed in the symptoms. Knowing what to do in terms of treatment, prevention and correction isn’t always easy, but there are a few things you can keep in mind to make the journey a bit less complicated.

Know the Symptoms

Classic symptoms of vision issues, like squinting and sitting too close to the television, are red flags for parents, but what many don’t realize is that there are a host of other, subtler signals that can indicate a struggle to see clearly. For newborns, it’s even more difficult to discern any problems because their eyes are not fully developed. In older infants, however, the warning signs can be easier to spot. Irregular movement, one eye that stays stationary while the other moves normally, one eye that’s consistently closed or the failure of mobiles, lights or movement to catch her attention can be cause for concern and should be discussed with her pediatrician at the next well child exam. Toddlers and older babies may bump into furniture or walls when they’re crawling or learning to walk, rub their eyes frequently when they’re not sleepy, cover one eye to see things better and lose their balance when standing from a seated position.

Schedule an Appointment with an Eye Doctor

Around preschool age, even if your child is not exhibiting any signs of vision problems or difficulty seeing, it’s wise to make an appointment with an eye doctor. Even if he can’t yet read, there are still vision tests that can be performed on a young child that are capable of diagnosing many common sight problems. Rather than trying to diagnose a vision problem yourself, it’s important that you make arrangements for your child to visit the eye doctor for a check-up and full exam.

Prepare Her for Glasses

cutekidsIf you suspect that your child is having trouble with her vision, it may be a good idea to start talking about what glasses are used for, how they help people who have trouble seeing and how important they are to people whose sight is compromised. Your child may leave her first ophthalmologist’s appointment with nothing more than a sticker and a pat on the back, but she may leave with a brand new pair of glasses that she’s less than thrilled about. If you have reason to suspect that your child might be suffering from some vision issues, the best course of action is to ensure that she’s prepared for the possibility of corrective measures.

Rethink Harsh Punishments

Kids who can’t see clearly at school may suffer a drop in academic performance, become less active participants in the classroom and show a negative change on their next report card. Because a good education is so important, many parents are quick to treat academic neglect with a zero-tolerance policy, but it’s best to rethink things if your child is also showing other signs of having trouble seeing. The last thing you want to do is punish a child who’s already struggling for doing badly in school. Before flying off the handle when kids act out in school or return home with bad grades, stop to consider whether or not having difficulty seeing could be the motivating factor behind these behaviors.

Stress Compliance

Your child may not be eager to wear her new glasses, but failure to do so can lead to worsening vision problems down the road. After the diagnosis comes and corrective steps are taken to manage a vision problem, it is your job to ensure that compliance with ophthalmologists’ and pediatricians’ orders continues at home. Work with your child, his eye doctors and his teachers to find a plan of action that stresses cooperation and provides a supportive environment for your youngster.

7 Ways To Help Your Child With Stress

By Dr. Cammi Balleck

friendHow much stress is your child under? What is stress? Stress is a function of the demands placed on us and our ability to meet them. These demands often come from outside sources, such as family, jobs, friends, fears, thoughts, or school. So stress can affect anyone who feels overwhelmed, even kids. In preschoolers, separation from parents can cause anxiety. As kids get older, academic and social pressures (especially from trying to fit in) create stress.

You may not realize it but many kids are under stress and it is affecting their health. Stress related illness is the number one cause of hospital visits for adults. Compared with what adults face, it might seem like kids don’t have that much to stress about. But kids have their own concerns, and sometimes feel stress, just as adults do. And kids’ stresses can be just as overwhelming, particularly if they don’t have effective coping strategies. Most kids don’t know how to cope with stress, or even know that stress is what they are feeling. Most adults don’t even know how to cope with stress. For kids, feelings of stress, frustration, helplessness, hurt, or anger can be overwhelming, especially if they don’t know how to release the feelings.
What you can do for them:

Shut off the news and don’t let your kids hear you talking about your anxiety caused by the world that you get from the news.

• Shut off the news and don’t let your kids hear you talking about your anxiety caused by the world that you get from the news.

• Handle your stress wisely. If you are stressed, you need to first handle your own stress so your kids learn from you. As a parent, it is important you recognize if your kid is under stress. You may not be able to prevent your kids from feeling frustrated, sad, or angry, but you can provide the tools they need to cope with these emotions.

• Make sure your child is getting proper rest; kids need a good 9-10 hours a night.

• Make sure your child is getting good nutrition, limit sugar, processed foods, no caffeine, and no sodas. Kids don’t need caffeine and shouldn’t have it, it is only a stressor to their body, this includes iced tea, not just coffee.

• All kids need to be on a multi-vitamin and multi-mineral, especially if they are stressed.

familyrun• Make time for your kids, be there for your kids whether they need to talk or just be in the same room with you, make sure you make yourself available for them.

• Talk with them about what stresses them, maybe you need to help them cut back on afterschool activities or help them exercise, do yoga, dance, read, or journal to relax. Let your kids know that it’s OK to feel angry, scared, lonely, or anxious, and that other people all have those feelings. Be sure to reassure them that everything is ok.

familyEnsuring good health for your child is an important thing that you as a parent should consider seriously. Many individuals think that good health insurance for their child is best that they can do. However, one basic thing that people tend to forget is that, the first thing that comes in health insurance is health. Maintaining a good health is of optimum necessity. That is what all parents should focus in eh first place. Good and healthy habits lead to a good health. Therefore, make sure that you impart good values to your children right from a tender age.

Following are some of the essential things that every parent should teach their wards:

Daily exercise – Nothing can be as useful as daily exercises in keeping the body healthy and free from ailments. Performing daily cardio exercises for half an hour can be utterly beneficial. The most important thing that each parent should realize is that they themselves should start doing the exercises before they ask their children to continue with it. Children emulate their parents in every possible way. Therefore, when your child will see you do that, they automatically will do that too.

washhandsWashing hands thoroughly before taking a meal – A study has shown that those who habitually wash their hands regularly before taking a meal do not tend to fall sick. It has also been studied that washing hands itself can reduce the chances of various kinds of diseases.

Imparting proper eating habits – It has also been found that most children in today’s world suffer from obesity. And this has direct resemblance with the feeding habit. In order to save time, most individuals often feed themselves with fast foods. This kind of foods hardly has any sort of food value and hampers the growth process in children. That is something that each and every responsible parent should take into consideration. They must also make sure that their children must not take too much of calories or proteins. Excessive protein intake can put pressure on the vital organs like kidneys and liver.

Proper rest – A good rest is also important in maintaining good health. Owing to huge academic pressure most children in today’s world do not get a proper amount of sleep. And that in turn affect their health adversely. You should help your children in managing their studies and extra-curricular activities efficiently.

You can also hire a professional who will help you to find a good plan.
