Anxiety can be triggered by the fluctuations in the levels of sugar in your blood, both low and high. These surges are one of the triggers to anxiety and panic attacks.

Talk to a trusted friend or family member about your anxiety problems. If you tell someone else how you feel, they may be able to help you put things in perspective and help you to think positive thoughts. This can help you get rid of anxiety or at least make it better.

SOLUTION/ PREVENTING CHILD ABDUCTION AND EXPLOITATION

WHAT A MARTIAL ARTS PARENT CAN TEACH THEIR CHILD HOW TO PREVENT ABDUCTION AND EXPLOITATION

PREVENT CHILD ABDUCTION AND EXPLOITATIONKnow where your children are at all times. Be familiar with their friends and daily activities. Teach your child if he or she becomes lost to quickly tell a policeman that he or she needs help.

Be sensitive to changes in your children’s behavior; they are a signal that you should sit down and talk to them.

Be alert to a teenager or adult who is paying an unusual amount of attention to your children or giving them inappropriate or expensive gifts.

Teach your children to trust their own feelings, and assure them that they have the right to say no to what they sense is wrong.

Listen carefully to your children’s fears, and be supportive in all your discussions with them.

Teach your children that no one should approach them or touch them in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable. If someone does, they must tell you immediately.

Be careful about babysitters and any other individuals who have custody of your children. Obtain references from people you trust and see if you can have access to background screening information about these individuals. Many states give people access to sex offender registries and criminal histories.

BASIC RULES OF SAFETY FOR CHILDREN

As soon as your children can articulate a sentence, they can begin the process of learning how to protect themselves against abduction and exploitation.

Children should be taught

If you are in a public place, and you get separated from your parents, don’t wander around looking for them. Go to a checkout counter, the security office, or the lost and found and quickly tell the person in charge that you have lost your mom and dad and need help finding them.

You should not get into a car or go anywhere with any person unless your parents have told you that it is okay.

If someone follows you on foot or in a car, stay away from him or her. You should not get close to any car, unless your parent or a trusted adult accompanies you.

Grownups and others who need help should not ask children for help; they should ask older people.

No one should ask you for directions or for help loooking for a “lost puppy”, or tell you that your mother or father is in trouble and that he or she will take you to them.

If someone tries to take you somewhere, quickly get away from him (or her) and yell or scream, “This man (woman) is trying to take me away” or “This person is not my father (mother).”

You should try to take a friend with you, and never go places alone.

Always ask your parents’ permission to leave the yard or play area or to go into someone’s home.

Never hitchhike or try to get a ride home with anyone unless your parents have told you it is okay to ride with him or her.

If someone wants to take your picture, tell him or her no and tell your parents or teacher.

No one should touch you in the parts of the body that would be covered by a bathing suit, nor should you touch anyone else in those areas. Your body is special and private.

Children should be taught If you are in a public place, and you get separated from your parents, don’ be afrain to get help immediately. You can be assertive, and you have the right to say no to someone who tries to take you somewhere, touches you, or makes you feel uncomfortable, scared, or confused in any way.

Lengthening Your Child’s Attention Span

A Martial Arts Parent’s Guide to Lengthening Your Child’s Attention Span

It’s natural for children to feel restless, and the pace of modern life can make it even more difficult for them to concentrate. Video games and the internet provide constant stimulation, and immediate gratification. Kids may struggle when it comes time to listen to their teacher or perform any task that requires focusing on one thing and resisting distractions.

In fact, 87% of teachers said that modern technologies were creating a generation with short attention spans, according to a recent survey by The Pew Research Center.

As a concerned parent, you may wonder what you can do to help your child extend their attention span so that they can grow up to be productive and peaceful. Consider these suggestions.

Providing a Supportive Environment

  1. Serve nutritious foods. Fuel your child’s brain and stabilize their blood sugar with a balanced diet. They’ll want to eat their vegetables if you cut them into fun shapes and dip them in colorful sauces. Keep soda, chips, and candy to a minimum.
  2. Exercise daily. Physical activity keeps our minds sharp at any age. Gather together for a walk after dinner. Buy a gym membership for the whole family.
  3. Limit screen time. Pediatricians recommend two hours a day or less of TV and internet browsing. Decide which shows you want to watch and turn the set off in between.
  4. Rest and relax. Stick to consistent bedtimes even on weekends and summer vacations.
  5. Make learning fun. Maybe your son squirms after 10 minutes of doing homework, but you have to drag him away from his favorite video games. Turn schoolwork and chores into a contest that he’ll enjoy.
  6. Adjust your schedule. Children usually have at least one time of day when they’re at peak performance. Arrange for piano lessons before school or after lunch so the timing matches their personality.
  7. Provide a positive role model. Your child will appreciate the importance of concentrating if they see how it enhances your home life. Listen to them attentively when they describe their day at school. Team up to bake cupcakes or weed the garden.

Encouraging Constructive Habits

 Communicate face to face. It’s convenient to stay in touch by calling and texting, but kids need practice with in-person conversations. Plan for family dinners and weekend outings.

  1. Practice self-talk. Anxiety can cause a lack of focus. Guide your child on how to give themselves a pep talk when they face a challenging situation.
  2. Head outdoors. Nature has a powerful effect on our minds. A hike through the woods or an afternoon tending plants in a greenhouse will help your child to slow down and become more observant.
  3. Breathe deeply. Our breathing also influences our thoughts and feelings. Bring your child to a yoga class where they can receive instructions on fun breathing exercises. Buy them a harmonica or blow soap bubbles.
  4. Work on crafts. Children love to immerse themselves in hand-on activities like arts and crafts. Visit your local library and browse online for project ideas. You can turn a milk bottle into a bird feeder or decoupage an old picture frame.
  5. Read books. Story time is an ideal opportunity to train your child to focus while you deepen your relationship and prepare for bed. Let your child pick books that interest them, and take turns reading to each other.
  6. Make believe. For playtime, rely on toys and activities that stretch your child’s imagination. Build a stove out of a cardboard box. Act out a scene from a comic book.

Help your child to succeed in school and in the workplace. The power of concentration will help them to live mindfully, harness their energies, and achieve more with less effort.
