All people are associated with children. You might be associated with them through work or in your family. The unique characteristic about children is that they are constantly observing everything and everyone around them. EW Just recently my niece came to stay a couple of days at our house and I had the opportunity to watch her for a few days. I noticed that she disliked the same vegetables that her father dislikes. Her favorite dessert was the same as her dads as well. It was amazing to see how one person in this little 3 year-old life had such a major impact on her life.
Luckily, my brother does not smoke or drink and is just teaching her to avoid a few vegetables and eat chocolate sundaes. Unfortunately, this is not the case in the United States. Many parents will smoke and drink right in front of their children. Many parents do not attempt to feed their children healthy foods. If a change isn’t made the rates of obesity will continue to rise. This means more and more adults will be diagnosed with heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and many other health problems. A need for change is necessary. Change will only be made if everyone commits to make a difference in the children we associate with. Whether it be a brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter or neighbor be that person who educates them on the importance of eating healthy foods. Here is a great site of parents who shared thoughts on how to affect children positivity. Children
