Back to school time brings lots of emotions.
For students is usually excitement and nervousness.
For parents it’s relief. LOL!
My 3 teenagers started school this week , and my wife and I are celebrating. Yay!
I’m a proponent of rewarding kids for good grades. Dangling a carrot for good performance is an activity congruent with real life. I give them cash for each A they obtain on their report card. When I reminded them of that recently, they immediately started calculating how many good grades they need to get an Ipad. That’s a good warm-up for mathematics.
They were not so happy when I reminded them of a few after school rules. Like no TV or computer games until their homework is done. And their chores have to be finished. And they have to exercise first. Wow, I seem like a meanie don’t I. But I mean well – it’s called tough love; a good idea. I highly recommend it for all parents.
Let’s not forget about kids health. I recently gave a radio interview on WENG with the topic “How to Sickness Proof Your Child for Back to School Time. The key is all about building stronger immunity. My family and I have enjoyed having medical bills at or near zero year after year (about 16!) Pretty phenomenal. I believe any family can decrease their health care. medical, hospital, and insurance expenses using my whole health healing lifestyle recommendations. In fact, I wrote the book on it.
We do a lot of things to maintain that superior wellness level. You can learn our secrets by reading my previous posts.
But here is an important, inexpensive, and simple one – give the kids garlic. Garlic is a wonderful immune boosting food. It’s anti-viral. Use lots of it in your cooking. Better yet, pickle some cloves by dropping them into your pickle and olive jars. let them soak in the brine for at least 2 weeks. Them give the kids one at least weekly, more if they get some symptoms. Kids love it. That make for great natural and holistic health.
And you’ll love the savings!
May God bless you and your family with whole health,
