My friend Tamara, creator of MISLEAD: America's Secret Epidemic, posted the picture you see above on Facebook. She was excited to find a lunch bag that was officially PVC, phthalate and lead-free.

But the "ulra safe" and "worry-free" claims weren't completely justified. We still have one thing left to worry about: Microban. I don't like shedding a questionable light on products like this, because the manufacturer has gone the extra mile to make it safer. But it's more important to make informed decisions, right?

Sonora, CA - Would the world be a better place if more of us were trained to take a mindful moment to connect emotions we are feeling to our brains before we act?

After recently learning mindful behavioral training in their classrooms, a number of elementary school students think so. When asked if the learning is making any difference in their lives, almost every one of them indicates it has. Equally impressive, the sentiments of queried local educators and counselors working with Mindful Schools teacher and mentor Sally Arnold, a Sonora resident, also seem to lean that way. Advocates say that mindfulness, a behavioral learning approach that is experiencing exponential growth in schools across the country, develops a moment-by-moment awareness of one's thoughts, emotions, sensations and surrounding environment. It has been shown to strengthen our ability to pay attention where and when we want. It can also help us regulate our emotions; grow understanding and compassion for what others are experiencing; wisely adapt behavior patterns; increase our ability to calm ourselves; and build resilience to life's ups and downs. Hand-in-hand with this learning comes the nurturing of kindness and compassion to create a positive mind state called "heartfulness."

I want to protest in the strongest possible terms two stories in the Oct 14 News by Tyler Olsen; they look very much like a one-two punch of propaganda from a malignant campaign to force so-called early childhood 'education' on British Columbia families.

The first story was headlined Number of 'vulnerable' children entering school on the rise, with the sub-head Increase related to lack of core 'emotional and social competencies'" The 'vulnerabilities' and 'emotional and social competencies' are vaguely explained as a lack of self-control; but there is no indication of any research that identifies the cause of that lack.

I have ADHD and so does the Hippy Hubby. It has been a reality for me my entire life. My mom did a good job at trying to avoid diet triggers and shoved me outside to play as much as possible, but sometimes it can still be very difficult.

I have spent the last 9 months developing this aromatherapy blend so that it would be helpful to every member of my attention deficit, hyperactive clan. After doing as much research as I could, as well as testing out my creations on myself and the rest of my hyperactive clan, I have developed this aromatherapy blend, Calm Your Squirrel!
