COMMENT ON THIS – WHAT WORK DO YOUR KIDS DO AROUND THE HOME?

Leave a comment

A recent survey found that 82% of parents did chores growing up but only 28% require their kids to help out around the house.

One reason for the shift? An emphasis on extracurricular activities may have caused making the bed fall by the wayside.

But chores are still one of the most important predictors of future success, teaching self-reliance and responsibility as well as empathy.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
