Sleep is a BIG deal! As parents this is ultra-magnified. What if you had sleep apnea and stopped breathing thousands of time during the night? The effects that would have on your physical health, mental health, and work productivity would be extreme, to say the least. Some of you already know what I'm talking about. It's estimated that 22 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea. That's a ton of people functioning at 1/4 of their full potential. What if we could drastically lower that number by simply paying attention to the way our kids breathe? Of course, you would need to do more than just watch them, you would need to take them to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist like Madan Kandula, MD. Who is doing groundbreaking work to change the statistics and help children and adults with the basic need to... breathe. But It all starts with having an awareness to recognize the symptoms.
Today on How To Raise a Maverick we're talking about the drinking culture. Not the drink culture of the younger generation, we are talk'n 'bout parents. If you know me personally I love a good cocktail. So when Lisa Boucher starting talking about "when kids see you use alcohol as a way to cope with life... it's not a great message." Uhhm OUCH! I felt that one right in my "mommy needs a drink" tee shirt!Lisa who is a former alcoholic, the daughter of a formal alcoholic, mother of grown twin boys and has been helping folks with their struggles with substance abuse for 20 plus years... is calling for a "Wake Up!!" My favorite thing she said was "you can't raise a Maverick if you're a mess."#truthIf you enjoy a good mindset shift and wine... this is a good one for you!

You may think what has this got to do with raising Mavericks???? And I say EVERYTHING! In order for us to have healthy conversations about sex with the kids, we need to address our own sexual hang-ups. If you are like me, I was raised in a Baptist Church which for better or worse it didn't set me to have a healthy sex life right out of the gate. To say the least :)...

Parents LOVE to share photos of their kids. Kids are cute, funny and the grandparents want to see their every move. But is there a price to pay for letting the world have access to our kid's images...(and if you share them on any social media site you are sharing them with the world). YES! Here are just a few ... 1. 50% of the images used on pedophilia sites are stolen from social media sites. Often they photoshopped into very sexual images. Uhhmm creepy! 2. Digital kidnapping. This is where someone decides that they like your child, create a profile using their name and either pretend to the child or parent in the comments. Don't believe me.. check out #littlegirlrp (rp means Role Play, they are roleplaying that your kid is theirs) Many of the comments and tags are sexual and downright disturbing. 3. Digital DNA. This is a term that is now being used to describe your legacy and life online. Since facial recognition software is so commonly used now your child entire life will easily be searched by universities, employers and bullies alike. Let me know what you think... with me via our private Facebook page Maverick- Parents Hugs, Emily
