With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I’d share a few thoughts on the effect too much candy has on a child. Most people look as far as “oh it’s just making my child hyper for a while”, but I’m here to tell you that when your child (or an adult) gets too much candy, or other high sugar foods and/or drinks on a regular basis, there’s much more happening than hyperactivity!
I was a stutterer….. but I now have it completely under control!!
It started when I was a young child and like most stutterers, I have no idea why or how it started. But the important thing is that I’ve figured out how to keep it under control! Before I begin my story, let me share some advise to those of you who have a child, relative or close friend who stutters. Don’t bother telling he or she to “slow down” or “think before you speak”, because I’m here to tell you ….. it has absolutely no bearing on how the words will flow.
Do you have an elementary school-age child who is struggling with reading? I recently donated to an incredible organization which I believe is offering something VERY powerful to our Colorado Community…..they have volunteers who tutor children in reading!! 🙂
