Our children are the lights of our lives. We all start off as parents envisioning nothing but success, love and happiness for them. However, these dreams often do not manifest because they are not getting the important things they need to become disciplined, mature and motivated adults.
Desperate parents whip out the snack bag to prevent meltdowns on errand expeditions or to occupy the bored child or just simply because it's easy.
Perhaps the mind-body connection is much more powerful than we realize. We all know kids pick up on everything, so perhaps a parent's anxious mind affects a child's sensitive body.
