Topic - Forcing Your Child To Share In the 1980’s there was a “Sharing is Caring” movement started by the Care Bears, remember those? For years, we forced our kids to share their toys thinking that we’re teaching our kids to be gracious and generous. Actually, we may not have been aware that sharing isn’t natural for most kids under the age of 5. Six is the age of reason and before then, kids can’t grasp the social complexities of sharing. In order to share, two things must be understood:...

Topic - Sensation Seeking Personality Style Know someone who’s always looking for the next thrill and thrives on excitement? They can’t help it; it’s their neurology that results in a sensation seeking personality style. Think of it as “spice”. Some people don’t like the heat and for others, the hotter the better. Some have a low threshold for sensing the heat and others have a higher set point. Not good, not bad, just different. So it goes with those who seek novelty and intense...

Topic - Dogs And Sex Appeal Did you know that your dog can increase your sex appeal? A study done by a London match making company asked which group of pet owners they preferred and by a seven to two margin, they chose dog owners. The difference was due to personality. Dog owners are regarded as being more sociable and energetic and cats, well, people think they’re selfish and aloof. More than half of the people polled think that a pet owner will be a good roommate because it means...

Topic - High Schoolers Pot Use Underperform People who are impaired due to substance use don’t perform their best. Throw in an immature brain and it’s easy to believe that high schoolers who smoke pot don’t do well in adulthood. Researchers discovered that high school students who smoke pot just once a month were four times more likely to skip school, not turn in homework or get good grades. When they smoke on a daily basis, their desire to finish high school or go to college was fifty...

Topic - Body Jerking and Head Exploding When Falling Asleep Ever had that “body jerking” or “head exploding” thing happen just as you’re going to sleep? The jerk is called the “hypnic jerk” which could be caused by caffeine and tobacco as well as stimulant medications and exhaustion. When you’re so tired that your brain moves through the stages of sleep too quickly, it confuses itself into thinking the major systems of the body are failing and responds with a burst of chemicals that the...

Topic - The Miracle Of Melatonin Psychiatrists treating my clients for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder also recommended they take melatonin as a sleep aid. Sleep problems occur along with ADHD. Melatonin has been a mystery hormone for decades. We now know that it not only induces sleep but “keeps the brain in order”, too. Melatonin is released by the pineal gland which is a very small brain structure that tells the body it’s time to rest when darkness falls. During the night,...

Topic - On Meds, ADHD Drivers Are Safe If you have ADHD and aren’t medically treated for it, you’re more likely to have a major accident than those drivers with ADHD who are taking their medications. If Sam forgets to take his meds, his level of alertness is compromised. He’s more likely to run a stop sign or red light, speed, change lanes without signaling or engage in other reckless or distracted driving all leading to a fifty percent higher rate of serious accidents than other drivers....

Topic - New Vaping Dangers More Americans are using electronic cigarettes and the consequences are ugly. Young vapers are showing up in doctor’s offices with bloody lesions in their mouths and throats that won’t heal. The vapors inflame mouth cells in ways that cause gum disease. Why is this a problem? Because the more your gums hurt, the less you’ll brush and earlier than not, your teeth will fall out. Mouth sores and gum disease are just a few of the effects of vaping. The most serious...

Topic - Night Time Noise And Men’s Fertility Noise is linked to many health problems including pregnancy complications, premature birth and congenital deformities. Now, it’s learned that too much noise at night negatively impacts a man’s fertility. Earlier studies on animals proved that noise has an effect on male fertility, but this latest study concludes that excessive noise, especially at nighttime, can render a man infertile. Other factors in the participants’ lives could not better...

Topic - Couples Without Children Are Judged Harshly We fear what we don’t understand. We fear things that are different. We’re afraid of things we just can’t make sense of such as those couples who are able to have children, but choose not to. We actually scorn them. We also feel anger, disapproval and even disgust. We think it’s morally wrong and unnatural. Unlike other situations, we feel free to make our feelings and opinions known and even discriminate against those who’ve made this...

Topic - The Dogs Decide No surprise that ninety-four percent of dog owners consider their pets to be family, but are you aware that your dog might influence your relationships? Fifty-four percent of dog owners would consider breaking up with their lover if Fido didn’t get along with them. Two-thirds report taking more pictures of Fido than their significant other and half said they’d rather leave the lover for a week than their dog! Dog lovers are deeply concerned about their pets’...

Topic - Soda Speeds Brain Aging When you drink soda, you’re more likely to have a poor memory, a smaller brain and a smaller hippocampus which is the part of the brain that’s important for memory and learning. These are also factors for developing Alzheimer’s. Not worth it, is it? If you substitute diet soda, you’re three times as likely to develop a stroke and dementia. So not worth it. These conditions occur together, but so far, we’re not sure if the soda actually causes the problems....

Topic - Long Hours Of Screen Time May Not Be Bad I bought my first and only new car in 1977 and then, a study came out announcing that the “new car” smell was the off-gassing of plastic and other materials that could give me cancer. We hear all sorts of conflicting studies about, well, everything. We can’t seem to trust any information. Just recently, I read a study that says that long hours of screen time may not be bad for kids. They actually may NOT have a higher risk of depression from...

Topic - Different Persona, Different Social Media It’s a good bet that you act differently in church than you do at a ball game. In fact, we act differently from one set of people to the next. If we’re in the presence of authority figures or those with high status, we’re likely to behave differently than if we’re with friends. Online, it’s the same story. We seem to present ourselves in ways that are appropriate for the site. We give our best serious business persona on LinkedIn, but a more...
