Parenting Pearls 2023

               Top 3 things to know NOW about your child's well-being:


  1.  Screen-Time Can Scar:
      Over 1 hour per day of screen-time (TV, Phone, Computer), beginning in infancy correlated to   permanent changes in the brain (on EEG) by the age of 18 months.  These EEG changes directly     correlated to problems with attention and executive function all the way through 10 years of age   (where the study ended).


  1.  Marijuana Masquerades (as a harmless drug):
    Far from harmless, MJ is addictive and has proven to be a gateway drug.  If you want to increase your child’s chances of using heroin/hard drugs, psychosis, depression, anxiety, suicide, schizophrenia, and permanent loss of IQ, then let them believe MJ is an acceptable form of recreation.  These effects are especially true for the developing (Teen) brain.


  1.  One Pill can Kill:
    If your kids are in Jr High or older, Inform them NOW of the danger of death that could result from a single bad decision to take an illegitimate pill.  Fentanyl now laces a huge percentage of “street pills” in our society (60%).  A single small pill, made to look harmless and like a legitimate prescription medication, may have a lethal dose of fentanyl.  

Don't Delay Scheduling Physicals/ Wellness Check-ups

     Schedule your sports and school physicals or well child checks early during the summer months. The months of July and August book quickly and the summer months will be over before you know it. Scheduling your appointments for June will make back your back to school to do list easier to manage. Many sports require a doctor's signature for participation. An annual wellness check will allow our office to complete the sports physicals forms for you without an additional appointment. We can also complete camp forms, day care forms and other school forms when your child is up to date on their wellness checks. Our office staff can quickly locate your child's last well check and assist you in scheduling a time that works for your schedule.
