Does Your Child Have Allergies?

Basically there are a variety of things that children can be allergic to. Once children have been diagnosed, it is important to protect your children as much as possible. Children allergies can be quite severe if they have an allergic reaction. An allergic reaction might be swelling of the face, eyes, and head, some impaired breathing, hives, and skin itching.

1. Where to Inject Epipen. . . How to Dispose of an Epipen

The epipen usually requires a written prescription from your doctor. The epipen is a small hypodermic needle with medication already in the instrument for emergency purposes.  Do you know where to inject your child with the Epipen if your child were to have a reaction? According to Epipen.com., it is preferable to auto-inject to the anterolateral aspect of the thigh and not to the buttocks, digit hands, or feet, because of possible medical conditions that could cause a reaction. They further suggest if you have an epipen that has not been used and the expiration date has expired you should take it to a healthcare professional or hospital facility for proper disposal.


2. Types of Allergies

For the child that has food allergies, it is important to read the labels of certain canned foods. Be careful about going out to eat. For example, a child with peanut allergies might suffer from eating Chinese food, because some of the Chinese food is cooked in peanut oil. If there is pollen, dust, and mold allergies it is vital that children take the medicine that the doctor has prescribed or suggested. During pollen season it is hard to avoid not breathing the pollen. If the medication tends to make your child drowsy, you might want to administer it at night, this will all depend on the severity of the allergy and doctor recommendations. It is definitely important to dust the house and vacuum often. Keep the floors clean and keep the bedding clean as well. I have observed that many schools have become vigilant about taking steps to note about taking precautions to not have foods that contain peanuts, especially when celebrating a child's birthday. I know of one principal that promoted celebrating children's birthdays in the the gym with physical activities as oppose to bringing cakes or cupcakes to the school. The physical activities also promote good health.


3. Communication

Talk to your children about the allergies. Do it with love. Let children know why they are not allowed to eat certain foods. Especially if they have had an allergic reaction in the past. Explain why you do not want that to happen again. Children are very perceptive. 

4. Compile or Copy a List

Keep a list of all the things that your child is allergic to and keep that list with any medication, and epipen in a container to accompany your child wherever your child may go, whether it is over a relative’s house, to church, or even to the store. 

5. School

Make sure that your child's school has a copy of the allergy list. Make sure that your child's teacher is aware of the allergies, especially food allergies. 

6. Enabling

Finally, your child may have allergies, but your child is not an invalid. Let children know you love and care for them, but do not feel sorry for them and give them special privileges that you would not give your other children that are allergy free. That will only enable your child.

What do you do to protect your child that has allergies?

Do You Know the Funny Things Kids Say?

Sometimes just take time to listen to kids conversation. They can be quite funny. A few of the funny things kids say are listed below.


Funny kids


1. Baby

Several parents were in the park with their children. One of the parents told another little 4-year-old girl, "Bye baby." Her 3-year-old son said the same to the 4-year-old girl, "Bye baby." The 4-year-old little girl looked at the 3-year-old boy and responded, "You are not old enough to call me baby." "She can call me baby, but you need to be older before you can call me baby."


2. Barbecue

The grandfather was barbecuing. It was not done yet. The father came to pick up his granddaughter. The granddaughter politely asked the grandfather, “Grandfather can you send me some barbecue?” “Just send it in the mail.”

3. Bible Study

The parent said aloud, “I do not feel like going to Bible Study.” The child replied, “ Then if you don't feel like going, dont't go.” The parent replied, “ I will go because I don't want to miss a word that was meant just for me.”

4. Bumps

I have bumps on my stomach, said one child to his mother. He raised his shirt and took a deep breath  showing her. She thought he was referring to his nipples, but then he touched his rib cage. His mother said, “Those are your rib bones." (out of the mouth of babes.)

5. Directions

As the father was having trouble putting together an item for the house, the 5-year-old son came over and stated, “Maybe it would help if you looked at the picture.”

6. Dreams

The mother asked her daughter, “What did you dream about last night?” The 5-year-old daughter replied, “It is still going on, I just paused it.” Referring to the dream that is.

7. Fishing

The grandmother told her 5-year-old grandson that the grandfather was fishing. The grandson then said, Pray with me that grandpa will catch some big fish for the family." He then prayed," Dear God keep grandpa safe and let him bring home some fish for us to eat."

8. Gas

One 4-year-old kept passing gas. Finally the parent asked, “Do you think you might need to use the restroom?” She replied, “Yes.” So she went to the restroom and stayed there awhile. When she returned she stated, “I have some good news and I have some bad news.” “ I tried to booboo, but it was only gas.”

9. Introduction

This grandmother was at her 6-year-old granddaughter’s school. The teacher introduced the grandmother as the student’s grandmother. The student objected and said, “That is not my grandmother that is my Granny.”

10. Naps

One child complained, “Why do I have to take naps?” The mother explained that it was for her benefit since she was a toddler. The mother also added when you are in Kindergarten I will not require you to take a nap, because kindergartens don’t take naps

11. Obstacle Course?

Have you ever heard of a toddler saying, “ Follow me I will show you my obstacle course?”

12. President

A 5-year-old told his mother, “I want to become President of the United States so I can change the laws for you.”

13. Real Food

A child told his mother, “I am hungry.” His mother replied, “Would you like an apple?” The child responded, “Do you have any real food.?”

14. Sharing

One toddler told his mother, “Granny we will share you with our mother.”
Another child wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese's. The parent told him, “We do not have any money for that today.” She asked, “You don’t pay your bills?”

15. Sickness

 Another child said, “My daddy is sick, but he is not sick enough to die.

16. Stomach

One 4-year-old exclaimed, “ I’m hungry.” “ So that is why my stomach was growling.”

17. Sunday School

As a mother dropped her 4-year-old at church for Sunday School, the grandmother waited for her to bring in a change of clothing for the child after church. Apparently the grandmother was not moving fast enough. The 4-year-old stated, "Grandmother can we come on, they are missing me in Sunday School."

18. Spending the Night

The grandson told his grandmother, "I enjoy spending time with you, I like staying over your house, but I have been with you 2 days now, I need to see my mother."

19.Texting

The mother texted her son to make sure the grandchild was ready when she came by to get him. When she picked up her grandchild the child asked, “ Grandmother were you texting and driving?” She replied,”No, I pulled over in the store parking lot to text,”


20. Thinking Cap

Another 4-year-old was told by her parent that she needed to put on her thinking cap, but she could continue playing. The 4-year-old instead went into the front room and sat on the couch. The other siblings ask, "What is wrong?" "You can still play with us." The 4-year-old replied, " I am thinking."

21. Words

A mother told her 4-year-old child, “You did a great job.” The child responded, “Yes, stupendous.” The mother replied, “Where did you hear that word?” The child said, “I just know it means “cool.”

22. Work

A mother brought her son to work. It was "Bring your child to work Day." Her child sat in front of everyone and said, "Mom is this the guy you have to suck up to everyday?" (again out of the mouths of babes)

What is a Daddy?

A Daddy is very important to the family, just as the mother is. Many young girls are looking at their father to discover the type of man they want to marry.

My Daddy

The Daddy is important to the daughter and to the son. How many times have you heard a young man say, “My daddy was not there for me or I did not know who my daddy was.” Some may call their daddy dad, pops, or father.  Then others may have had a daddy, but had no relationship with their daddy.


Moral Compass

I recall my husband, who is a Viet Nam Veteran sharing with me that he was a Points Man in the army. He explained the Points Man would go ahead of his battalion to scout out any enemies or disasters that may be ahead of them. Someone has said that the father is like a Points Man or a moral compass for his family. He is always looking out for his family's well-being. He is a protector or a fixer. God has designed him that way. I recall one Father's Day my Pastor asked several men to come before the congregation and share about their fathers. Unfortunately, there was one that stated he honestly did not have any fond memories of his father, only negative ones. That was so sad to hear.

Importance

According to Dr. Gail Gross, Huffingtonpost.com girls tend to look for men that have characters like their fathers and boys tend to emulate their fathers. I have seen those that have said, “ I am nothing like my father or I do not want to be like that man.” In reality though there may be some characteristics where they are just like their father whether they like it or not. I recall that we did not have a car when I lived with my father and grandmother, but I remember catching the bus with him to go to the Carnival. I loved to go to the carnival. My father worked as a Porter at the train station in Gary, Indiana. I always loved to ride the train, it had a distinct smell that I really cannot describe.


Church

Although my father nor my grandmother attended church, I discovered that my neighbors went to church every Sunday. My father allowed me to go with them. I wanted to know about God and what church was about. I started praying and asking God for what I wanted at a very young age. My father was kind and soft spoken, I had never heard him raise his voice, even when my mother would fuss at him often. Even when he punished me with a small tap on my legs, he always sat me down and explained why beforehand. He always let me know there was a consequence for my action.

Mentor

A Daddy may be a mentor or not necessarily the biological father. While a mother is important, it is equally important for the father to take time with his daughters and his sons. I recall a young man telling me how much he respected his father and made it a point to not curse in front of his father out of respect. He pointed out that he was from a large family and that his father took time with him and his brothers to take them fishing and teach them to hunt. He proudly said that because of that he was an expert shooter.


Think about your father. Can you find any pleasant memories about him?

Happy Father's Day to Fathers  and to the single mothers that have been father and mother to their children.

If you are Happy Clap Your Hands

Hand clapping started long ago. Hand clapping may be common for some, but have you ever really thought about some of the reasons people clap their hands? What are some of the reasons that children clap their hands?

CLAP YOUR HANDS




History

Applause, was a sign of acclamation in the Ancient world. By applauding a performer we are giving that performer a pat on the back. Did you know that clapping in the Western Culture was in the theater. Also, politicians gauged their standing with the people by the applauds they received when they entered the arena. Do politicians today gauge from the applauds they get when giving a speech? What about when you hear a good sermon, do you clap your hands to let the minister no that you appreciate it? Everyone likes to be appreciated. Hand clapping is one way to do this.


Hand Clapping in Church

Psalm 47:1, “Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph! The bible talks about clapping your hands and shouting to God. When I look back over my life, the first church I attended was a Methodist Church. There was no hand clapping in that church. Nor very little in the second church I attended which was a Baptist church. When I first started attending my present church, I was not used to clapping during the praise and worship. In fact, there was so much clapping and praising I asked my daughter are you sure this is a Baptist church and not sanctified? I have observed that more Baptist churches are clapping and praising and as of today it is just natural for me to clap during the praise and worship. I am clapping and praising God, not anyone else.

I have visited several churches including my daughter’s church in the south. I was so comfortable at her church, it was almost like being at my own. The clapping and praise was awesome. I noticed a few just sitting around and just looking, but that is their right to do so. What about you? Do you clap your hands during your morning worship at church?

Attention:

You can also clap your hands to get someone's attention.


The Song “Clap Your Hands”

I have seen many children sing this song, “If your Happy and you know it, clap your hands.” When you think about the lyrics, it makes sense, you are clapping to signify that you are happy. I have observed that it is a real catchy tune that children really seem to like. I have also observed that adults like it as well.
Some hand clapping issues revolve around cultures. The Western world does hand clapping because of appreciation, whereas the non-western parts hand clapping is more of a cultural rhythm. I believe this does help the soloist and let the soloist know that the effort is appreciated.

6 Secrets to be Pain Free

It is a blessing to be pain free. I have several friends that have complained about being in pain most of the time. I could not imagine. There may be a few things that you can do to ease your pain.

Pain Management



I did some research regarding pain. There are a few things that you can do to manage pain. I once had a friend tell me, “Arthur is acting up today.” I did not have a clue as to what she was talking about. She then asked, “You have not heard about Arthur?” I replied, “No.” She explained that she was talking about “arthritis.”

I then had an acquaintance state that she did not want to live to be 80 or 90 years old. I asked her, “Why?” She then went on to tell me of all of her ailments and added things were not getting any better. I then replied, “Yes, but you are here and not dead and gone.” It did cause me to think about how important quality of life really is because  I am a spiritual being.  I renew my spirit daily with the word of God. Your physical body may deteriorate daily, but you do everything that you can to maintain your spiritual body just as you do your physical body. What can you do for the physical pain that you may be experiencing?


1.  Back Pain

According to Web Md, simple exercise such as walking may be the best medicine for back pain. They further add to do this in moderation.


2.  Neck/Shoulder Pain

Did you know that stretches can help ease neck and shoulder pain? Yes Dr. Peter F. Ullrich Jr. talks about how a stiff neck sometimes accompanies back pain. He further adds that by flexing and gently bringing the chin to the chest can aide in easing the pain. I wish that I knew about this earlier in my life. I recall myself and coworkers in the office often complaining of shoulder and neck pain while on the telephone at the computer. I would go home and have my children line up and give me shoulder and neck massages to ease the muscle tension and pain. Now massages are nice that is something to not be ruled out. Plus there is so much power in that physical touch.


3.  Shoulder Rotation

I personally have found that when I sometimes have been setting at the computer just a little too long, rotating my shoulders forward, upwards, and backwards does wonders for shoulder pain.

Have you observed in the hospital or doctor's office that the nurse will sometimes ask you, “On a scale of 1-10 how do you rate your pain?"    I am glad that they do that, because everyone's tolerance of pain is different.


4.  Deep Breathing

I have found that deep breathing is an excellent way to release muscle tension. Sometimes you may become anxious without even being aware of it. Just take about 10 deep breathes and slowly blow out. It has a calming effect on your entire system. So it is good for the mind also. I have learned also that this is so important for mothers during delivery of their babies. I recall how deep breathing was so helpful for me in delivering my babies.

5.  Sore Throat

Have you ever had a sore throat? I used to get them all of the time. I recall my neck hurting and being so stiff it was almost unbearable. It did require medical attention, so do not hesitate if you have the stiff neck with a sore throat. You could have strep throat. Do not try and self-diagnose, but rather go to the doctor and be sure to gt it checked out. If medication is needed, be sure to take all of it.

6.  Heat

Editors for Consumer Guides suggest using heat such as wet towels, hot water bottle, or a hot shower to relax those tense muscles. I have even found that a heating pad just works wonders for those sore muscles. They further suggest practicing good posture. I know this to be true, because many times I find myself slouching at the computer. So I remind myself to use good posture.  What do you do for pain relief?

2 Awesome Summer Activities in Michigan

Michigan has some places to visit in the summertime. The great thing about these places is that they are family oriented places. You must visit.


summer camps in Michigan

One of the places that I really like is Camp Copeneconic in Fenton, Michigan.


Here you will find various activities for the family. Day Camps or overnight Camps are available. Be prepared for a lot of walking and above all wear comfortable shoes. Since Michigan weather is quite changeable you might want to wear boots if it has been raining on previous days. In fact there were snow flakes earlier during this month of May. Cold and adverse weather usually does not last though; before you know it the sun is shining again. Some of the camps may include SuperHero Camp, Mother and Daughter Ranch Camp.

Some of the other activities may include basketball, zip lining, archery, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and GaGa( a sort of dodgeball where the children form a circle and attempt to eliminate each other by rolling the ball rather than throwing the ball at another. This game is played in an Octagonal Pit. They have this game set up outdoors and indoors in the event of rain. They continue this until there is only one player left standing. I went Kayaking for the first time at Camp Copneconic. At first I thought I would not like it and that it would be difficult, but I discovered it was so much fun. Many of the children were excellent shots with archery.

Camp Copeneconic


The classic Day camps have a new theme weekly. This Camp can accommodate up to 450 people and they do provide meals as well. You will see on their family page the motto “The Family that plays together, stays together.” I like that.



Besides great Chicken that Frankenmuth is known for they have a great Zehnder's Splash Village Hotel and Water Resort. One of the the great things I like about the Water Resort is that the water is warm, 82 degrees) as oppose to cold water. This makes it more inviting. The  park schedule for half days are $35.00 per person from 10 am-3pm or 3 pm-8 pm. Full day passes are $42.00 per person. They also offer package deals for families and/or birthday parties. Their birthday parties include Pizza, soft drinks, 20 Arcade Credits per person, and even more. I was amazed to see young and old at this water park. If you have not been to any of these amazing places. They are places that you must see.
