The Neck Adjustment

At a previous visit, I was with my son for his first neck adjustment.  I knew that our chiropractor does not use the method of “cracking” your back or neck.  She uses precise, deliberate pressure to move the spine into alignment.  In fact, this is one reason that I was comfortable with allowing…

No Change For A While

It has been a while since my last post. My son was having two adjustments a week for a few months.  Now we are moving to one per week.  It will taper from there according to his reassessment. There were a few adjustments that seemed to have wonderful results for his ability to listen and…

The First Adjustment

I was nervous about this adjustment.  No one else was… just me.  I was nervous that he would be scared of the table, the sounds, and anything else that had to do with an adjustment. The first thing that happened was his scan.  They roll an instrument up his back all the way to the…

The First Assessment

When we made the decision to have my son assessed for chiropractic care, it was with a great amount of prayer and a proven trust in our chiropractor. Both my husband and I have had great success with our care…

The Next Boxing Champ

My son was about six months old when he began slapping me.  It was cute at first, but it wasn’t long before the cuteness wore off.  There were times that I thought he must be in training to be a boxing champ. I remember one time, I think I saw stars.  I had…

Your Time Equals Your Love

What do the words “I love you” really mean to a child?  Is it possible for a child to even capture a small portion of the meaning?  Chances are very high that your child has no clue what the words actually mean.  It is your actions with those words that create the meaning…

Homeschooling – More Common Than You Think

I remember when there were only a handful of people that took on the challenge of homeschooling.  At that time there were very few co-ops, and the argument that the kids would never socialize was a big deal. Now there are co-ops and associations.  There are programs at the YMCA and the local…

Disney With A Toddler

Even as a complete Disney nut, I was a little concerned about how things would go with our 1 1/2 year old rambunctious little boy. Would he be afraid of his hero, Mickey Mouse? Would he think any of the attractions were fun…
