Back to school

Research shows that chiropractic helps your child concentrate better, raises IQs and helps vision, dyslexia and all kinds of kid-related problems. Recent research by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) found spinal manipulative therapy safe and successful in treating children of all ages. Periodic ongoing adjustments at a young age may help stave off the above ailments before they begin. Proper spinal alignment now may delay or prevent degenerative bone or joint disease, such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition to maintaining children’s health, regular visits to the chiropractor also instill the value of proactive health care in kids. They’ll be more likely to monitor and manage their health as they grow up and less likely to be afraid or in denial of any health problems. Encouraging good lifelong health habits is one of chiropractic’s best benefits for kids (LiveStrong para. 4).

While we’re on the subject of kids…some of their Words of Wisdom

Children were asked to describe love. This is what they wrote:

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.” Billy, age 4

“Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.” Karl, age 5

“Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.” Chrissy, age 6

“Love is when someone hurts you. And you get so mad but you don’t yell at them because you know it would hurt their feelings.” Samantha, age 7

“Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.” Terri, age 4

“Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.” Danny, age 7

“Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.” Emily, age 8

“Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” Bobby, age 5

“If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.” Nikka, age 6

“Love is hugging. Love is kissing. Love is saying no.” Patty, age 8

“When you tell someone something bad about yourself and you’re scared they won’t love you anymore. But then you get surprised because not only do they still love you, they love you even more.” Matthew, age 7

“There are two kinds of love. Our love. God’s love. But God makes both kinds of them.” Jenny, age 8
