You may be wondering what is so obvious about parenting? With all the expectations we place on ourselves and all the information and opinions floating around, parenting seems far from obvious. In fact, more often than not, parenting, or the just the thought of parenting, can feel downright overwhelming. Well I have good news! Parenting may not be easy, but it can be obvious. We just have to get back to the basics. Our number one job as parents is to raise healthy, happy, confident, safe and fun-loving human beings. And all we need to make this happen are seven simple keys to supporting their wellness. These keys open our thoughts and actions to prevention, and the sooner we practice prevention, the more powerful it is.
As a pediatric physician assistant and parent of two wonderful (in my humble opinion) children, I have found that the majority of pediatric books only talk about how to treat or react to a problem instead of focusing on supporting wellness and prevention. Our fast-paced culture, with its endless pressure to
keep up with the Joneses, has caused significant stress on our society, health care system and the environment. By being intentional with wellness throughout all stages of life, the world will be a less stressful place for you, your family and society.
Supporting wellness requires a holistic approach toward parenting. We must focus on our body, mind, spirit and also the environment we live in. Each of the seven universal keys discussed in this book is connected to the next. By unlocking one area of wellness, we make it easier to unlock the rest. For example, by exercising on a regular basis (second key) we are able to sleep better (fourth key), have an improved mental state (third key), and reduce the risk of injury by building strength and coordination (sixth key). Fortunately, this works for parents as well as the children they are raising.
You are on an incredible journey that will be filled with joys and challenges. These seven keys will provide a strong framework to ensure that wellness permeates your life and the life of your children.
