Why Does There Seem To Be More Cases Of Bad Behavior In Children?

I see it everywhere I go. Children behaving badly and I mean really bad. Maybe it’s because I am getting older, but there seems to be an increase in the number of children acting out.

Now, don’t misunderstand me, I know there are countless reasons to what I see as every child acts out now and then and I agree. Mine sure does!

I also understand that there are more special needs children such as those with Autism. I think there is a correlation with the rise of those numbers as well.

I also know that some parenting experts would say it’s due to a lack of parental discipline, too much exposure to violence, too much screen time with computes, phones and TV, etc.

To all of that I say, agree, agree, agree.

But I also know there is another cause – the amounts of household toxins have risen.

From perfumy laundry detergents and fabric softeners to household cleaners, to scented fabric sprays, children are much more exposed to dangerous chemicals in the home and school than ever before.

If you don’t think this is a problem, think again.

According to a report to Congress, the Environmental Protections Agency (EPA) stated, “Indoor air pollution is one of the most important environmental health problems.”

Most homes have airborne concentrations of toxic chemicals 2-5 times higher than the air outdoors!

That is really scary as our children spend a great deal of time indoors in school and with the colder temperatures keeping them indoors.

Behaviors seem to be a symptom of this toxicity. Many studies have shown when certain cleaning chemicals are introduced, children’s behaviors change.

One study observed young children playing in a room where scientists observed via a 2 way mirror. The children were playing well with adult driven activities such as playing games, name writing, number writing and reading. Then a bottle of a popular pine smelling cleaner was brought into the room. The bottle was put up out of reach and just the lid removed so that the cleaner’s odor would slowly enter the room. Within ten minutes the scientists observed dramatic changes in the personalities of the children – crying, fighting, some children were writing their numbers backwards, others showing signs of dyslexia and others acting out.

When the bottle of pine smelling cleaner was removed and fresh air allowed into the room, the scientists observed the children slowly calming down and returning to pre-exposure behaviors. Hmmm.

Look at these photos:

Listen to this:

“Of chemicals commonly found in homes, 150 have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, and psychological disorders.” – Consumer Product Safety Commission

“More children under four die of accidental poisonings at home than are accidently killed with guns at home.” – National Safety Council

What really gets me are quotes like these are said to high ranking government officials and committees along with detailed reports and studies provided. What really bothers me is that nothing is being done about it!

It is truly up to us as parents to protect our children from these very dangerous toxins.

Do you know a child who seems to be worse than normal when it comes to behavior? Do you think those behaviors could be linked to chemicals? Would it be worth a try to use safer products for 30 days and see if that child’s behavior would improve?

Did you ever stop to consider that you are slowly poisoning your children? Does this sound like a harsh question to you?

Think about this for a moment: You have a small toddler. You are a good parent, you keep your cleaning supplies up out of reach. Why? They’re dangerous you say.

You also only clean after your baby has gone to bed. Why? Because they’re dangerous you say.

You never would let your toddler handle bleach or any other toxic chemical. Why? They’re dangerous you say.

Then why are you spraying them around the very same floors they crawl on, the very same windows they love to “kiss”, the very same cute, cuddly clothes and blankets they snuggle in?

What you clean with and what you use to clean your clothes plays a big part in the health of your children. There is absolutely no reason to feel forced to use these chemicals.

Recipe: Chocolate Covered Bananas

Do you have some over-ripe bananas dying a slow death on the counter?

No one will eat them because they are yucky, right?

Here’s a great way to use them and have a semi-healthy treat! You only want to use very ripe bananas so the mushy ones are perfect for this.

Peel bananas and cut off any brown areas.

Slice bananas in the size you want. I like to cut mine where they can be eaten in 2-3 bites. The chocolate will melt on little fingers if too big.

Melt some semi-sweet chocolate chips in a bowl for 1 minute in the microwave. Stir.

Take tongs and dip banana slices in chocolate. Take a spoon and cover banana slice on all sides with chocolate. With tongs transfer chocolate covered banana slices to a freezer safe plate, arrange in just one layer and not touching. Do not cover plate.

Work fast as the chocolate will cool quickly and harden. You may want to do melt small batches of chocolate at a time to prevent this.

Place open plate in freezer till frozen. They don't take long to freeze. Once frozen, wrap in small, individual pieces of wax paper, put in freezer bag and pop back into freezer.

Now you have individually wrapped, finger sized, semi-healthy treats the kids will love.

They taste like a frozen ice cream treat. Even those who say they don’t like bananas will like these since they taste more like ice cream.

Don’t worry about how they look. Mine do not look professionally dipped, but my family obviously doesn’t care as they disappear fast!

Hope you like this new way to use mushy bananas and the good banana sort of balances out the not-so-good for you chocolate, right? I like the way you think. ;)
