  • Will My Doubts and Fears Affect My Child?

    Will My Doubts and Fears Affect My Child?© Copyright 2004 Rebecca Hanson Please ask permission to reproduce this article. “Will my doubts and fears affect my child?” This father is concerned about his son, a high school athlete with a vision of playing professional sports. The father’s fear is that his son won’t be accepted into the ‘right’ college to be scouted by the professionals. He wanted to know:How does your vibration, as a parent, affect your children? Can your negative or low frequency vibration create resistance or prevent your child from attracting his or her desire? How much influence do you have over your child’s ability to attract something they desire? What would you tell this father?My answer was simple: “Your vibration affects your child to the degree that he allows it.” Now, you might think that the older the child, the stronger his or her vibration will be–that the parent’s vibration would be less influential as the child matures. However, that is not necessarily so.Another client told me about a camping trip that her family took last summer. Picture this: mother, father and 7 year old Janice are driving in the car, through a national forest, looking for a place to set up camp. Father is discouraged and making comments like, “We’re not going to get a place to camp.” Every time he said that, little Janice said, to herself, “We ARE going to get a camping spot.” This went on for a couple of hours, as the family drove from one campsite to the next looking for an opening. Finally, Janice spoke up, rather defiantly: “Yes we ARE going to get a camping place. I just know it!” And at the very next campsite, there was a vacant site right close to the gate. My client said she was impressed with her daughter’s ability to maintain her high vibration of expectancy, while a parent was vibrating such negativity.I have three (almost four) grandchildren. One little fellow has displayed a true stubborn streak since he was a toddler. While his independence and self-determination are sometimes difficult to live with, I realize that he is exercising his right to not let other people set his vibration…oh, no! He has his mind made up and he’s going to have his way–always! Could it be that he knows something that my generation is just learning? Maintain your own vibration!Not all children have developed the ability to maintain a positive vibration when their parent is vibrating fear or doubt. I was able to help the father, who recognized his own negative vibration, create a Focus Wheel. Together we came up with six or seven statements which allowed him to release his fears and raise his vibrational frequency. Statements like, “Even though most sports professionals are scouted at certain Universities, it IS possible to be scouted elsewhere.” “My son has the ability to attract his desire.” “The Universe knows the BEST way to bring about the fulfillment of my son’s desire.” Perhaps you realize that your child, your partner or a friend is letting your vibration affect theirs and you’d like to have a more uplifting influence. Here are a couple of suggestions:1. Learn about the Focus Wheel. Here are the instructions, a sample Focus Wheel and a blank Focus Wheel that you can begin using today.2. Order the Law of Attraction Tools for Business 4-CD Series. Each CD focuses on a different Law of Attraction Tool and you can apply it to any aspect of your life or business. One CD is dedicated to the Focus Wheel–you’ll really find it helpful to listen to Rebecca coach several students on creating a Focus Wheel to replace doubt and fear with believing, and faith in what they already KNOW to be true.Here’s the link to order this CD set: http://www.LawOfAttractionResources.comDo you have a story that demonstrates how your vibration influenced a family member? Or how they stayed true to their desire until their desire came true? Email Rebecca with your story and you may read it here in the Museletter!

  • ADHD, Overweight and Obesity: The chicken or the egg?”… asks Tampa Bay Dr. Nelson Mane.

    Article by Dr. Nelson Mane DC

    Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is associated with over weight and obesity. This relationship has been established in the scientific literature yet not well understood. We see from the studies below that children and adults with ADHD are more likely to be overweight when not medicated. We also see that ADHD children who are medicated are more likely to be underweight. This is expected as the most common medication for ADHD is methylphenidate a drug knows to have side effects indicated decrease appetite and weight loss. So much so that methylphenidate has potential and reputation for abuse. Here are two recent studies regarding to the relationship between ADHD and weight.

    Department of Community Health, Brown Medical School, Box G-S121, Providence, RI 02912, USA. molly_waring@brown.eduOBJECTIVE: As the prevalence of childhood obesity increases, identifying groups of children who are at increased risk of overweight is important. The current study estimated the prevalence of overweight in children and adolescents in relation to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and medication use. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study was a cross-sectional analysis of 62 887 children and adolescents aged 5 to 17 years from the 2003-2004 National Survey of Children’s Health, a nationally representative sample of children and adolescents in the United States. Attention-deficit disorder/attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder was determined by response to the question “Has a doctor or health professional ever told you that your child has attention-deficit disorder or attention-deficit/hyperactive disorder, that is, ADD or ADHD?” Children and adolescents were classified as underweight, normal weight, at risk of overweight, or overweight according to BMI for age and gender. RESULTS: After adjustment for age, gender, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and depression/anxiety, children and adolescents with attention-deficit disorder/attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder not currently using medication had approximately 1.5 times the odds of being overweight, and children and adolescents currently medicated for attention-deficit disorder/attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder had approximately 1.6 times the odds of being underweight compared with children and adolescents without either diagnosis. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides heightened awareness for pediatric providers about the relationship between attention-deficit disorder/attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, medication use, and weight status. Future work is needed to better understand the longitudinal and pharmacologic factors that influence the relationship between attention-deficit disorder/attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and weight status in children and adolescents.1Division of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, Massachusetts, USA.Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral disorder that affects ~2.9-4.7% of US adults. Studies have revealed high rates of ADHD (26-61%) in patients seeking weight loss treatment suggesting an association between ADHD and obesity. The objective of the present study was to test the association between ADHD and overweight and obesity in the US population. Cross-sectional data from the Collaborative Psychiatric Epidemiology Surveys were used. Participants were 6,735 US residents (63.9% white; 51.6% female) aged 18-44 years. A retrospective assessment of childhood ADHD and a self-report assessment of adult ADHD were administered. Diagnosis was defined by three categories: never met diagnostic criteria, met full childhood criteria with no current symptoms, and met full childhood criteria with current symptoms. The prevalence of overweight and obesity was 33.9 and 29.4%, respectively, among adults with ADHD, and 28.8 and 21.6%, respectively, among persons with no history of ADHD. Adult ADHD was associated with greater likelihood of overweight, (odds ratio (OR) = 1.58; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.05, 2.38) and obesity (OR = 1.81; 95% CI = 1.14, 2.64). Results were similar when adjusting for demographic characteristics and depression. Mediation analyses suggest that binge eating disorder (BED), but not depression, partially mediates the associations between ADHD and both overweight and obesity. Results suggest that adult ADHD is associated with overweight and obesity. Obesity (2008) doi:10.1038/oby.2008.587.The question remains: Does having ADHD predispose you to being overweight or does being overweight predisposed you to ADHD? Our model proposes that it is the thing associated with being overweight predisposes you to ADHD. That is modern society’s lack of exercise and increase screen time (T.V., video games, internet). If we look at the last 2 decades when Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder have increase drastically we find that during this time in western cultures, fast food, video games and computers also have increased. Our model proposes that it is the lack of exercise (kids playing video games instead of being outside playing) which disturbs motor development as well as input from the postural and antigravity muscles to the brain which is a factor in the under connectivity and functional disconnect syndrome associated with ADHD and ASD. At a recent lecture I attended regarding childhood neurobehavioral disorders a clever cartoon was put up on the screen to make a point. The cartoon showed an overweight boy drinking a coke and eating a bag of chips while sitting in a chair playing a video game. This child’s mother tells the child that it’s time to take his medication. The boy’s response “not now Mom I’m playing football.” Exercise has been shown to not only reduce weight and improve health but also improve cognitive function. This is not to say that enrolling the child in soccer is going to be the magic pill that solves everything. It is simply a suggestion that in a condition with many associated possible causes this may be a contributing factor or at least an aggravator. Let’s face it these kids are picky eaters and at times letting them play video games is the only thing that calms them down and helps mom and dad not pull their hair out. But it seems at times as if they may be locked into things that can hurt them long term and all of us involved with these children need to be aware.

  • KBCE is a two elements educating toy: a colorful mat on a rectangular shape with seven different colors and matching colors in a pea size grains. As an educating and/or disciplinary tool, parents will demand the child to sit down and separate each color from all mixed together color grains. The grains are made specifically for children, safe to play with and they are eatable and sweet, but not a pleasant flavored sweet that will make the child want to eat them and is “Made in the USA”, however your may want to excercise caution if you have an infant in the house.
