I am sad to have discovered that some parents want to hide the fact that their child is struggling with a learning, behavior or mood challenge. This suggests to me that these parents believe that there is something wrong with their children.
Here’s the truth
Children who struggle to learn, feel good or enjoy life are totally normal, wonderful, talented, intelligent and creative beings – except that there is something that is happening in their biological systems which has thrown their chemistry off balance. In a vast majority of cases the problem lies in their digestive systems not their brains. When we find and treat that hidden biological cause of the problem, these children will learn easily, be happy and feel good about themselves and life.
The epidemic of learning and behavior issues in children and teens today is made worse by parents, teachers and the uninformed public thinking and believing that there is something seriously wrong with the brains of kids who cannot learn or who display negative behaviors. The only thing that is wrong is that they are being treated by the wrong healthcare practitioner. They need a healthcare practitioner that knows how to look for, and treat, the real underlying biological root causes that create the symptoms they are showing. In a vast majority of cases the problem lies in their digestive systems not their brains.
It is time for us all as parents to Take Charge! Let’s speak out loudly against the untruths and misconceptions about why children cannot learn or why they behave badly or feel depressed. It is time to:
- Speak out against doctors that continue to mask these symptoms with drugs.
- Speak to each other about things we have tried that have made a positive difference.
- Speak to the schools and the teachers about the best way to handle these kids.
Above all let’s be sure to remember to speak out and tell our children, many times a day, how great they are!
