It’s that time of year again where kids go back to school and we settle into a new routine! My girls started school yesterday and with it came a combination of some nerves about new teachers and classmates as well as excitement too!
Today, I’m happy to share this thought-provoking video about how different our children’s educational experience and life is compared to when we were kids.
Admit-tingly, I’m a lifelong learner junkie, so this kind of information really lights me up!
But more important than the stats in this video is the awareness of how much our world is changing…and the impact it has on our children’s health and happiness.
What does this exponential rate of growth and innovation mean for our kids?
…It means that in order for the next generation to thrive it is ESSENTIAL for their physical, emotional, and relational health to be consistently strong.
Our kids need to be able to process a ton of information, adapt to new ways of learning, connect with a worldwide society and maintain confidence in new situations.
Unfortunately, there are some hidden truths that have a direct correlation to this increased demand of our changing world.
Did you know that according to published research in 2014:
70 million Americans are on mind altering medications (anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medication and ADD, ADHD medications and several others.)
8.4 million of them are children!
250 Million Antidepressants alone were prescribed in the U.S. in 2010.
6.4 million American children have been diagnosed with ADHD. That is a 42% increase in ADHD diagnosis in 8 years.
What is NOT being highlighted:
1) The body has the ability to heal itself given the proper environment.
2) The fuel we ingest has everything to do with our body’s performance, moods, choices and reactions.
3) Most conventional treatments and drugs address the symptoms without addressing the cause of the issue.
4) Heredity is not predestined. (Harmful genes can remain inactive with a supportive environment.)
That’s why, I’m inviting you to receive my book Vibrant Child: 7 Steps to Increase Your Child’s Health & Happiness.
