Now I’m going to talk about Health with my kids. As the previous posted stated is that my youngest son has ADD and he wasn’t under medicine on our vacation. Since he has been taking his medicine for his ADD, he has been a very honest, nice, pleasant little boy.
We also found out why he was getting so frustrated at school. He learns slower than the rest of his class. He is not intelligence slow but learning slow. Once he learns it then he is able to do it. This includes spelling and mathematics.
Also my youngest daughter was born with a club foot and recently had surgery to fix this issue. She is almost completely recovered and the surgery worked.
So you should spend time playing with your kids and keeping them healthy since not all kids have that pleasure. And for the kids that have some type of health issue then try to treat them as normal as possible since that is what any kids wants.
Please feel free to leave comments below on your experience with kids that have health issues.

Wow… those sound like tough challenges indeed. My “kids” are of the four-legged kind—and their health was also my topic for H day 🙂 Looking forward to more of your posts! Don’t worry too much if you’ve fallen behind; happens to the best of us 😉 Keep going, though! A parenting perspective from a male blogger is pretty unique in the blogosphere 🙂

Thank you for your comments. I will be caught up this evening with the challenge. I had a sick kid so my blog was put on the back burner until she was back to normal.
My brother is autistic and has ADHD, it took him a very long time to come out of his shell. This is such a good post, thank you for sharing this with us.
I look forward to reading more of your work

Glad to hear about your brother. It to me longer to realize he had a problem in the first place. My son is very active and loves playing with other kids.
It took years to find out what was wrong, he got a diagnosis at 14, he’s now 26 this year and doing amazing.
It is good that you found how your son learns and can work around that so that he does learn. Everyone does learn in different forms, but good to find the one that may be working for him.
None of us are “blemish free.” In children’s books, the main character usually learns to cope with an imperfection and that imperfection may even help him to solve the problem of the story. I’m sure you’re finding ways to keep your children motivated when they hit rough patches. Wishing you the best during these precious years.
