Title: New Topic/ End of Times Depression
Post by: Lori on April 16, 2010, 10:00:42 AM
The other day Daniel came home and told me that many kids at school are worrying over the possibility of WW3 beginning.  This has been the talk of Television and Radio programs and its effecting the most vulnerable, our youth. 

Many of kids are sensitive to what is happening and the media is not helping any.

This is a resource to help us as parents and caregivers with kids both spiritually and mentally. Many of the kids are indigos and they are going to have a harder time through these changes,

God Bless

Lori, I agree probably a lot of our kids are Indigos... and already more sensitive...
I hope the schools are not pushing those buttons very much only so much the kids can do,
so best they not be exposed to it much...I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis -I was pretty young and in college.
I mean I was not so consciously scared at first, but after hearing about it from the more well -informed older "political type"
guy friends at school, then a couple of times realized I was terrified.

Blessings to you and yours,

Remember when they used to scare us all the time about being attacked by Russia? AH the cold war!
 Even if it's not a conscoius thing, it makes you insecure. These poor kids, maybe only let them watch videos, no live TV anymore because of the sensationalism.

Linda I agree. It's good to be informed but at a young age nothing they can do but worry.
I managed to get ahold of newspapers and read stuff pretty young - but that was the 1950s. Nowadays,
in general - if the TV is not on they won't know one one hundredth of the bad stuff
that goes on. I think the adults should know but kids do not have to. Not til a little older...

I know.  I want to look at natural ways to help them.  I'm not interested in all these physiological meds they advertise.  I get tired of hearing if your feeling blue wound down, take this pill you'll feel better and half the time affects are worse then the main symptoms.

I think we all as parents have always done and will continue to do what is necessary for our children, yes? For me, I do not let the little ones watch the news in no way, no shape! I have a drill that I go through with the children about three times a week and they don't even know that it's a drill....bless their hearts. I am a strong Believer in the Most High God and so are the children, we pray together as a unit a lot!

What do I desire for the children.... is that their transition into the next life will be with as little pain, heartache and suffering as possible. I pray their little hearts be comforted and that they always have enough to eat. I pray that each and everyone of us adults guide them in the right direction and turn NOT ONE AWAY!! One of my favorite Bible sayings: But Jesus called them to him, saying,

My kids have been aware for the past 3 years.  Course both are teens.  My daughter is almost 20 and graduating from High School this year.  We are still making plans for her to go to college.  She has an interest in Forestry and Computer Graphics.  We're making plans, but also planning for what could happen as well.

Daniel is sensitive like me.  He knows something is getting ready to happen.

Both seem to be doing OK.  I think its because I've been preparing them for possible for several years now.  Which is a good thing.

Lori I think it is good you are preparing them.
Maybe it is possible to find a middle ground -where they aren't exposed to news and so on
much at all, yet when they reach a certain age, starting to grow up they can be informed
that big changes could be ahead. I wish you all the best of luck. Important to try to keep
the kids at least nearby... so everyone can join in a group and work together..

Post by: Linda on May 28, 2010, 05:26:08 AM
I was thinking about this subject today due to the fact that I talked with a friend last night and her son is having depression issues, he is in early 20"s. I went through that with two of my children and found the most effective things were vitamin D, and exercise. I think young people are not outside enough, and of course in certain areas we lack sunshine in the winter months. Also both of these children carry their anxiety inwards which causes them a lot of stress. My son especially didn't want to talk about things that worry him, so more anxiety and stress, then depression. Young people certainly know that things are changing rapidly, they just may not be able to express it or cope with it.

Heck most adults can't cope with the changes and possibilities of the future let alone our kids.

Linda I hope your precious kiddos are OK now...
My oldest daughter went through something and I instinctively watched her pretty closesly for awhile... sometimes it is biochemical... best route is, as you said through nutrition and figuring it out.
Some people have a genetic disposition toward a B12 deficiency - I have one bro I need to help him test his blood. Completely overlooked by doctors. It causes a lot of what is considered Schizophrenia...
Also a thought if your bunch is the ancient Type O Blood - then exercise is even more needed...
Blessings,
Barb
Title: Re: New Topic/ End of Times Depression
Post by: Yowbarb on May 28, 2010, 10:57:08 AM
As you know also, many nutritional causes of depression...
I find that if I have enough iron and d etc. and alkaline forming foods and some sunshine
that really helps...

Post by: Linda on May 28, 2010, 12:40:02 PM
Interesting Barb, we are type O's and the ones of us that exercise feel better. Didn't associated that with blood types. We also have Celiac's that runs in the family, my sister has a very severe case, she can't touch anything with gluten in it. I am suspicious that my son might have a sensitivity but he chooses to ignore the symptoms so far. One of the main side effects of Celiacs is B12 deficiency due to inability to absorb their nutrients.

Linda interesting to hear of the type O childrens. So exercise would help them a lot. Easier said than done but some sort of home gym....
My son who is here is going to put up a chinning bar in one of the doorways and find somewhere to hang up his punching bag... he uses small weights in living room etc. We are all O's here. Pretty sure one or two of my brothers A and my Mom A. Never could get here to ask her doc about her blood type.
Wow I didn't know that -celiac disease causes B12 deficiency.
I should probably try harder to not consume breads. A lot of symptoms are gone when I take colchicine so I don't think about it. Do better without wheat. The Essene bread, frozen foods aisle in big health food stores seems to agree beautifully with me. You cut off a piece or two toast it and put low fat cream cheese and/or ghi butter yumm. It seems when Michael cooked for us the other grains that was OK spelt, kamut, amaranth millet etc. Also corn tortillas don't seem to bother me. At Costco we get these gluten free crackers. They are so good a a small handfull feels like a meal. I like having them along with the fresh juices.
Well getting back to the kiddos of the world I do recommend exercise, low wheat low sugar fresh juices and as much love as can be given...

Post by: Linda on May 29, 2010, 06:14:59 AM
Barb, I have a small gym in my basement. It's mostly for me as all the kids are out on their own, and my husband doesn't workout. I  work out at home and at Fitzone for women about 4 times a week, I just feel better when I do.

Regarding the Celiac's and B12 deficiency. The reason it happens is in Celiacs the villi (small hairs in intestine) get damaged. The villi is responsible for absorbing nutrients. They kept diagnosing my sister with pernicious anemia (for at least 20 years) she would get B12 shots, but never going a step further in this and finding the cause. After all this time of misdiagnosis she developed mal-nutrition, and the Dr. still didn't catch on. Long story short, she became seriously ill, was hospitalized and eventually they found the  Celiacs as the culprit. Now we realize that my mother suffered with it for years,(she also had low iron or B12 deficiency) and no doubt my brother has it as well. It can damage your whole system if left untreated, and the only treatment is to avoid gluten. The main symptoms of Celiacs is
    *  Digestive problems (abdominal bloating, pain, gas, diarrhea, pale stools, and weight loss).
    * A severe skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis.
    * Iron deficiency anemia (low blood count).
    * Musculoskeletal problems (muscle cramps, joint and bone pain).
    * Growth problems and failure to thrive (in children).
    * Seizures.
    * Tingling sensation in the legs (caused by nerve damage and low calcium).
    * Aphthous ulcers (sores in the mouth).
    * Missed menstrual periods.


The Eziekel bread and any sprouted sourdoughs are good even if you have a gluten sensitivity. They are finding that the majority of the population is becoming gluten sensitive due to the fact that gluten is in almost every processed food, canned, packaged, frozen. So you have to really rely on eating whole unrefined products.

Sorry if this is long, it's so important to catch this especially in children as they tend to eat more processed and refined white flour foods. One of the other things that happens is the person with Celiacs longterm develops malnutrition, but doesn't generally get skinny, they get fat and bloated looking. My sister gained over 100 lbs and she had malnutrition. The body starts storing the calories because its not absorbing the nutrients and it thinks its starving.

Linda, since posting I got myself and my two offspring with me the good liquid vitamin minerals. This time it doesn't have the echinacea which is an "Avoid Herb" for type Os, which I am.
Also we got liquid coral calcum again and also some inexpensive sublingual B12 tablets. Since starting up on this regiment just a few days my son is looking "brighter."  (He has a very high IQ but is dopey or down at times and yes it may be partly the thought that PX may actually be coming and he does notice the earth changes....)
I shared with them the datum that B12 deficiency can cause depression in and of itself. It's worse when the person has a genetic predispostion to being deficient to B12. We take it along with a meal and the liquid vites which have B complex in them. Also a few times a week the freshly made veg fruit juice made with greek yogurt and the flax meal.
Shortened the post....
RE Children and depression - They are not "children," but they are sensitive or rather all of us are...so things that balance are good. Keep on with your good ideas...

Barb, So very glad to hear about the vitamins and how it is helping. Something I found interesting is I read an article the other day on the fact that B12 is becoming more deficient in the population especially as we age, so all the more reason to supplement if you can. As a matter of fact my daughter started up on a B complex recently because she felt tired and was having problems with small cyst developing on her legs, the vitamin B helps that as well, Who knew? I also think that earth changes are causing most of our problems especially with emotions.

Thanks Barb,

Linda :)

Linda thanks very much - I didn't know the B12 was starting to be lacking in a lot of the population.
I will help spread the word on that. Should definitely get some to one of my bros.
That is wonderful to  know about B12 helping with cysts... growths and cysts whether benign or not are becoming a situation in our family group... or the possibility of them.
Bone pain too...
I am not depressed but I feel I need to do a whole cleanse and get serious about it to
"let some sunshine" into my brain... my mind.
Some things I did in the past will do now...
Another B12 win my daughter who is with me I notice her disposition improving on the B12 and she says it has immediately helped her digestion.
Well I feel it is partly stress that people are going through and changes - including sun changes. Whether the PTB  wants to tell us or not. Well this is supposed to be about the chldren here.
A thought: RE the children, it's important to have a stash of special things to help with mental stress for during the Crossover and in the long Aftertime...
In the past I found that giving more water to a hot headed or crying youngster really helped. My youngest grandson would have a tantrum and I had read in some Vedic thing that this can be lack of water. So I gave him cool water to sip on from his toddler cup and he calmed right down. So I pointed that out to my daughter so she would know.
Calcium magnesium small tablets or fizzy drink these can calm kids down.
Perhaps some lukewarm chamomile tea with a little honey would be calming for kids.
I once gave my son (young adult at time) a couple of valerian capsules to bring him out of (what was turning into) a devastating upset.  The Valerian did help him snap out of it and he konked out askeep.  Note: Valerian supposed to be Highly Beneficial for Type O blood, not good for all blood types. Reference: Eat Right For Your Type. Not everyone agrees with the book it seems to work for this family...when I apply it.

Linda we need to find out what are safe dosages. Sometimes it's better to be asleep with the world falling down around one. You may know more than I do about herbs for kids and dosages...
All The Best,
Yowbarb

Linda not to get us off track here but I did have a stray thought and posted it about how some of the mental and physical things I am going through could be from the sun.
It's been awhile since I checked the UV map of the US or posted about it. Just went to the Topic and realized the map updates itself!
So what is scary is where I am (and a lot of the US) had a UV Index of 11 which is Extreme. I notice now that the day is going on some of my pain in my bones is going away. It is an 11 all here in Florida, the southeast and the east coast... Yowbarb

That's interesting Barb that you bring up the subject of giving your grandson water when he is having a tantrum, he may have been having a headache (one of the first signs of dehydration). I read that when people have a headache or pain the first thing to try is water because most of the time it's your body crying for water. I read about that in a book called "Your bodies many cries for water"    Info on this site: http://www.watercure.com/ (http://www.watercure.com/)  And I have to say that most of the time it works. Who knew a simple drink of water worked better than medication? ;D

I will check into children's herb dosages, most of the time it's 1/2 of adult dose.

Barb I am also a Type O, and I noticed in one of your post you said you couldn't take echinacea, I believe that bothered me also, but I can take Valerian Root with no problem, Interesting.

One of the main reasons B12 is low in a lot of the population is due to poor assimilation of our food and the types of food we eat. B12 is highest in meat sources.

Love the UV map, what a great resource. You are in an area of high index, so you probably have to limit your time in the sun.

Lindathat's good info about water -easy to forget. Important for kids.
it's good to get feedback and compare notes. The fact you do well on valerian and not on the echinacea which lines up with the blood type theory - that's interesting.

BTW echinacea gives me mental confusion. I had a job in a chiropractor's office for awhile - worked for one of the chiropractors there. The one who I didn't work for noticed  I suddenly got a runny nose. He came up with echinacea tincture in a dropper. At first I felt good then gradually got so confused it was like the day after I got in a car crash and hit my head on the dash - confusion which kept getting worse. Well one gal who worked there said (our) chiropractor would have muscle tested you first! The two docs didn't agree on things and were separating out their offices. The one I worked for was in the process of moving to his own office. I knew what muscle testing was, but just took it... it was like I took a stupid pill. It wore off eventually just like the car crash.

About my grandson my daughter at first thought no it wasn't the fact he needed water - but then she saw he plainly did need water. I was around him a lot when he was little and just kept giving him water and he was fine. Once he got old enough to stand on a stool and get his own water his disposition improved. he actually is a very mellow kid.

What you said about the B12 - will try to remember quality of food and enzymes to digest -very important.

Take it easy,

Ga_boy thanks for posting, and welcome to Town Hall. It's a very delicate balance teaching your children a frightening fact without filling them full of fear. I think the best we can do is try to prepare them to deal with different types of emergencies and give them the skills they need for survival.
 Here is a site that helps prepare young children for different emergencies that you might want to check out.

Hello Georgia boy it's good to see you posting here in this Topic.
I wish you all the best of luck in explaining things to your little ones.

I just want to share something, not everyone will agree with me, but even a toddler somehow knows what you are telling her. Knowledge, values can begin to be imparted. Even if years later the teen has no recollection of their early years, no idea you had shared your hopes and dreams and concepts of right and wrong.  Somewhere part of it has been instilled. What I mean is the child is a spiritual being and at times can be communicated to directly like that.
I mean, general things, calmly. In between the toddler and the teen there needs to be plenty of communication of course. Mine turned out pretty good but all could still use some "schooling," so I didn't
do a perfect job.  I feel if I did the job right I would be considered like the matriarch who everyone comes to for advice and guidance for the future. Not like that, although it looks like there is some willingness to listen.
After all the years of being fairly kind now I wish I were consolildating for myself a position of strength, more.
I don't see anyone else talking about bomb shelters it's pretty much all on me, and it's not like when I say "jump," they jump, but they should. I do know more!!

As the mother of five and grandmother of three, who previously helped with lots of kids, preschool etc. I
can tell you one thing. Every kid is different. Some get totally freaked, sometimes for no reason, even in non emergencies. Some are calm when you are explaining things, and are calm later, right in the middle of it.
Each child has strengths and weaknesses, like adults, and this will vary upon the circumstances. Every kid,
from the beginning seems to have their own "buttons." Things which will upset them.

It is important, I feel to say something about the fact the world is not always so nice, that bad things can happen that some things are dangerous. That sometimes people need to act fast, do things fast in order for it to be all right.  The fact that the children need to obey the parents especially if the "bad things are happening." As someone who has always had a pretty much free flow of communication with my kids, I know it's tricky to know where to draw the line.  Better to err on the side of too much information than for the child to be a sitting duck for danger to come along... I communicated PLENTY to my kids in an effort to keep them out of harm's way. A couple of them had some very close calls but the communication, and the karate drills - these helped. I found that my children did not seem to have the same catlike caution or instincts for survival I do - so I had to coach them a lot of what to do and what not to do, where not to walk etc. The girls were not allowed to walk to the store alone. If the oldest was along they could all go along to the corner store. If one girl was on a bike to a friends and understood she needed to go fast and it was within two blocks, she could go. But even that was rare. I didn't leave things to chance.  Sorry to say it but as the world goes more and more nuts the kids willl need to be kept close.
 
As someone who has been bashed by an outside person for communicating freely, I can say that maybe some things are better kept to oneself. How you raise your kids, and anything out of the ordinary.
You have the final say how you raise your children.  There will always be someone trying to meddle or say you are wrong. (Not you personally - just a general thought.)

I hope this was not too long, just sharing some thoughts. Looking back over a lot of years trying to help children. I will be posting more ideas -just some opinions, in the next one.

All The Best to you and yours,
Yowbarb

Hi Ga_boy,

Here are my thoughts about explaining to young children: perhaps say this:
"Yes, strong earthquakes and hurricanes might happen here.  If so, we will stick together with our family/friends/church, sharing and caring until food runs out.  Then we will all go to sleep peacefully and wake up in the spirit world where there are no earthquakes nor hurricanes."

And then perhaps start organizing so that that can really happen.  Does that sound reasonable?

GA_boy we are glad you did survive and you are still here for your girls.
That's a good thing you are teaching some survival skills. "Generation Text" needs to put the devices down
for a couple hours a day at least. I made that up: Generation Text, but no doubt someone else has
come up with the same name, hehe.  My grandkids are Generation Text.  (There was  Gen X, Gen Next etc.)
I'm a Doomer - I mean Boomer, myself.
Never been revived but had some close calls... glad I have bought myself some time...

Just a little thought about one way to put off or cut down on the depression and stress of all these thoughts and changes: Vitamin B1. Any kind of prescription drug wipes out B1, and to my knowledge, so does stress.

Add the foods which have the complete B complex...I used to give my kids freshly made popcorn (in a pan on the stove) and put some oil and a little salt and some brewers yeast. Not all yeasts are alike some are actually tasty. The kids loved it!!

I wasn't always been so good on the diet but perodicaly we would have brewers yeast, wheat germ, whole grain like Essene bread (frozen in a good health food store) or even some grape nuts. It all helped...
I know this is  not a Topic about foods or vites but it will help...without some B vites and also magnesium (and all the vites/min to balance it) we are sunk.
May as well try to stay sane...
All The Best,
Yowbarb

I wanted to chime in on this topic.  I TOTALLY AGREE with Yowbarb on this!!  As a mother of two small kids, 8 and 5, I agree that all kids are different on how they can handle certain issues.  Take my 8 year old for example.  She is very mature for her age.  We had a death in the family due to cancer a few years back, and she insisted on going to the viewing as well as the funeral.  Of course questions about cancer and death came up.  I answered her questions truthfully, but not graphically.  Now her sister on the other hand would stress to no end if I explained that to her. I would have to select my words carefully with her. As a parent, we know our kids and their limits on info that they can handle. 

 My suggestion is to be honest with them...but tell them at their level.  And...ask them questions.  If little Suzie asks you if the Earth will end, ask her why she wonders such a thing.  Maybe she has had a dream and can give you insight to it.  I also believe that kids know alot more than they let us on to know, and understand alot more than we give them credit for.

Lola, it sounds like you have a very good and open communication with your children,  :)
So true -  each child is different and handles reality and the rapidly moving changes in a situation - differently.
I like your concept of asking them why they feel something will happen, if they originate that something will happen.

Well, here's my two cents. I am very concerned with the way the generation behind me raises their kids. My wife (before she left) was 13 yrs younger than me and the primary caregiver to my kids while I went off to war. She had those little kids on so much dope; all because she didn't want to deal with them. Now I have all but one off the MEDS, & she's taking a1/4 of a pill a day now.
You have to LOVE your kids! You have to PLAY with your kids! You have to TEACH your kids! Ever since I took over, they are great kids, no problems. If you don't take care of your kids who will? Barney? Ernie & Bert?
When we play in the back yard, we ALL play! Show them how to play army with sticks & pine cones. Show them how to play tag, or build a fort! That sh*t is FUN! That's all the kids want anyways is to be loved & cared for.
We clean house together, I always help. We put on loud music and make a game out of it. Everyone works, and when we are through, we get a Popsicle!

My girls trust me when I tell them "don't worry about the changes coming, I will take care of you". I teach them everything I can to survive, and they love it because I'm giving them the attention they so desperately need from their daddy.

Cheers, erv

Erv you are doing a good thing. Keep it up which I am sure you will.  :)
If they get too hyper to handle it helps to settle them down in the evening and give calcium magnesium drink just a little so it doesn't give the runs...
Some kids who are bright and outgoing are "a handful," I know...
My kids were up early and wanted to stay up til eleven o' clock jumping around on the beds... five of them.
The circles I move in, we are very anti psych drugs particularly for minors.  Not one person I know personally would sedate their kids.
Good Luck,
Yowbarb

If my girls get too hyper, I put them in the backyard & we play tag. I start off being it and I pretty much stay in a 10' circle while they run around me! Make them run! They are tough little Marines & getting tougher every day!

Making instant calcium magnesium drinks and also taking Valerian help with feelings of hopelessness, worry and etc. Help with sleep.
Trial and error for herbs which help you. Not all herbs are for everyone.
Many of us older folk are on a cocktail of medical drugs...
This burns out magnesium and also (very much) burns out B1.
The whole B complex, supplemented with a B1 tablet daily really helps...

PS easy does on any dose of anything whether it be a med or natural if given to kids...
I used to give my kids CalMag but never valerian. I only gave it to my son - bought him a bottle once - but he was an adult...
