Interesting Read

I read in this month's issue of Men's Health something I would like to share with you. It is unrelated to healthcare, but since I am soon to be a parent, I found it useful information.

90% of your job as a parent is keeping your children from accidentally killing themselves. Another 5% is making them feel comfortable taking risks, and the final 5% comes from teaching them how to decide which risks are the right ones to take! very Ironic!!
You are not suppose to tell your children what to do, You're supposed to let them watch you.
I guess this last statement has a bearing on your child's health and wellness! If your children grow up watching you swallow NSAIDS like pez or eat foods you know are going to cause heart conditions, increase cholesterol or bring about metabolic syndromes, this will eventually lead them to make poor decisions about their health. Remember, your kids are watching, make the right decisions not only for your health but for their's as well. God bless!
