Great advice-thanks for sharing! I think sometimes it's easy for parents to lose sight of the bigRead More picture.

Thanks for the reminder of the benefit of connecting limits, choices and consequences. Ultimately,Read More we hope our children learn to make wise choices for themselves. And the crucial point that knowing a rule intellectually is not the same as emotionally being able and willing to follow it-an issue for the gifted, in particular. Susan Theobald, LCSW

As a teacher who retired around the time No Child Left Behind appeared, with its restrictiveRead More emphasis on testing, I applaud your work. It's interesting to me that now, after a whole generation of children were subjected to narrow, shallow, factoid-based teaching so they'd fill in the test bubbles correctly, creativity and critical thinking are again coming into vogue. It would be laughable if it weren't so tragic. And unfortunately it's mostly kids from lower income families who've suffered the most from this decade-long failed experiment (the very kids it was supposed to rescue).

Yes! Not only will our children be required to think creatively when they grow up, but as adults weRead More can learn a lot from the way they behave and apply it today. Their unbridled joy, their belief that anything is possible....

LIttle Sugar Addicts is a book that might be helpful to some in this situation.

My husband's side of the family is strongly ADHD. These kids have developed hypoglycemia duringRead More childhood, one generation after another. One genetic line of their family developed type 2 diabetes 100% if they lived beyond age 50. We're not talking small numbers. Every sibling in a large family of 9 or more kids developed diabetes. I think it's great that you posted this blog piece because teachers and parents need to know that the roots of most, if not all cognitive problems stem from an underlying medical problem. If the medical problem is not identified, treatment is usually a bandaid approach. Kids today generally eat poorly too. It's a recipe for learning struggles.
