Send Your Kid to Camp with Special Foods for Their Special Diet

Send Your Kid to Camp with Special Foods for Their Special Diet

Paige Brady

It’s a summertime rite of passage: hiking, swimming and hanging out in the great outdoors at a camp filled with lots of kids (and no parents). Meeting new friends and being away from home – sometimes for the first time – can be exciting and scary and oh-so-much fun.

I never wanted my daughter’s wheat sensitivity to keep her from experiencing all the joys and trials of summer camp. From packing the right snacks to getting chummy with the resident mess hall cook, here are some tips and tricks from a mom who’s hiked the path.

Parents - Beware! From One Teen To You!

Parents - Beware!  From One Teen To You!

Parents – Beware….

Depression!  You’ve seen it…heard about it…felt it…yet!  As a parent, you might not understand it through the eyes of your child. 

Depression is becoming less visible to those who can help, because of social media allowing the privacy of such thoughts, only shared to other teens. 

On social media, whom are the teens reaching out to? 

Through trending on social media networks, self-harm is becoming more and more transparent to other teens that are not in a position to help depressed students.     

For example, as a young teen, myself, when I go on Instagram, it is shocking how many teens are posting photos which are upsetting and depressing.  Teens are showing in their photos that life is horrible and not worth living.
