Yay, my blog was chosen by eCollegeFinder as one of the Top 115 Parenting Blogs! I won something! How fabulous!
I have to admit, blogging is not easy. Sometimes it feels like you’ve acquired a ravenously hungry pet that requires constant feeding and attention. But I have stuck with it for over a year now and I feel supremely honored and gratified that there are people out there paying attention to little old me. But, back to the matter at hand…my award! Thank you very much, eCollegeFinder, for validating my blog. Now, who is eCollegeFinder anyway? It looks like they help match adults who want to go back to school with…well, schools.
If I could go back to school all over again, I totally would. If I were independently wealthy today, I’d quit my job faster than you can say, “BOOYAKASHA!” and go back to school. First, I’d choose a good on-line Food Sciences program, because I want to learn all about the chemistry and biology and science behind whatever the heck I’m eating. Next, I’d go get certified as a Flower Essences Practitioner. Next, I’d go get a Graduate Certification in Advanced Holistic Nutrition. Then, I’d go study Ayurvedic medicine. Then, I’d take a course in Iridology (the science of analyzing the eyes to assess a person’s relative health). After that, I’d want to learn Homeopathy…so as you can see, I would pretty much become a professional student for the rest of my life.
The good folks at eCollegeFinder asked me if I had any “inspirational words of advice” for students who are also parents. Well, considering the load on student-parents, it is vital that they keep their kids healthy and support their kids’ immune systems. Can you imagine sitting up all night with a sick child while trying to write a term paper or study for an exam? I would not wish that on anyone. So here were my tips for providing natural support for your children’s immune systems: a) feed them the right food to ensure they get the right nutrients; b) have them take a pediatric multivitamin year-round; c) in the fall and winter, supplement additionally with liquid bioflavonoids, Elderberry syrup, and Vitamin C. If this advice looks familiar to you, it should – I basically stole it from Dr. Marcel Hernandez, ND’s post: How to Support Your Child’s Immune System.
Thanks again, eCollegeFinder!
