How to Help Your Kid Get Better Sleep

Children and Teens who need more quality sleep

Children who need more sleep falling asleep with devices in car.

Health and Wellness Online Logo

Quality sleep in children and teens aids in not only physical health, but mental health and well-being as well!

Sleep is a basic human need – not just for our physical bodies, but also for our mental health.”

— Dr. Donna Poppendieck

COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Most of us know how important sleep is to anyone … without enough sleep and without enough quality sleep, you can find yourself suffering the consequences, whether you realize it or not. You may not be sleeping soundly, and you may not be getting into the different types of sleep everyone needs (think REM sleep and dreaming – essential to our overall health).

Sleep is a basic human need – not just for our physical bodies, but also for our mental health.

But enough about you. What about your children and teens? Children ages 6 to 12 need 9 to 12 hours, and teens 13 to 18 need 8 to 10 hours of good quality sleep. (The average teen only gets 7 to 7.5 hours.)

A teen’s natural sleep hormone melatonin is produced later at night, so they may have a harder time falling asleep at a reasonable time. Since they must usually get up early for school, they may have unintended consequences like trouble concentrating and lower grades. If they are driving, they may be drowsy while doing so. They may experience anxiety and depression as a result – they may even have thoughts of suicide.

As for younger children, starting as early as 3 months of age, higher levels of melatonin are produced at night, and lower levels are secreted during the daytime. In spite of this, up to 25% of healthy children have insomnia, and for those kids with neurodevelopmental and psychological disorders, about 75% experience insomnia. Kids also have trouble focusing, they are often hyperactive, irritable, have poor memories, feel anxious and depressed, and experience learning difficulties. All of which are reflected in their school performance.

What can you do?

Everybody – including kids and teens – needs vitamin D. It may also be helpful to take iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, B vitamins, valerian, vitamin E, chamomile, and the amino acid theanine. Always work with a competent health care professional if you want to supplement with melatonin (even though you can purchase it over the counter).

Nix the soda, cakes, cookies, over-reliance on bread and pasta, etc. So, make sure you help your kids and teens dial back on the junk food. Also – read labels of products you purchase for your children – added chemicals for preserving or any other reason may be detrimental for their overall health, including their sleep patterns. If you want to purchase gummy vitamins please be aware that there is usually a significant amount of sugar in them, so these may not be the best choice.
However, if you improve the quality of their diets, especially in the salad and veggie department, you may be able to get most of these supplemental assists from the food itself!

Other tips for improving sleep are to turn off all screens at an earlier hour, make sure kids and teens get enough exercise, avoid eating close to bedtime, ensure bedrooms are dark, maintain a regular sleep schedule, avoid afternoon naps (or at least limit them to 15-20 minutes) as kids start getting older, limit caffeine intake (think chocolate, colas, coffee, etc.) and especially don’t eat or drink them at night. They’re stimulants! When summer break is coming to an end, and before school starts, begin setting an earlier-to-bed schedule.

If your child or teen seems troubled, and especially if they’re not talking to you about it, don’t hesitate to try some mental health counseling. You, as parents, can also take a look at your parenting style and see if you can improve your skills which may help your kids even more.

As always – have a happy, holistically healthy day!

There is less complaining from my two kids and less nagging/yelling from me. We now work as a team to keep the house clean and love having our monthly family meetings.”

Dr. Kortney Peagram, Ph.D. of Bulldog Solution Inc & Peagram Consulting says “As a Psychologist and a Bully Teacher, I think this app is really important to have for every parent. It really drills down the importance of responsibility, accountability, and teaching our children about expectations.

Crown and Compass Career Coaching Is Now Offering Voxer Coaching To Assist Those Who Suffered Pandemic Related Job Loss

Julie Lokun Introduces Voxer Coaching To Help Those Affected By Pandemic Related Job Loss

Julie Lokun is offereing an innovative method of coaching to those who have suffered pandemic-related job loss.

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, September 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Crown and Compass Coaching has introduced an innovative coaching style to support those affected by recent job loss. Julie Lokun, the CEO of Crown and Compass Coaching is offering Voxer Coaching free to those who have suffered pandemic-related job loss. Voxer coaching utilized the Voxer App, which is a walkie talkie style app that allows clients to freely ask career related questions to a coach during a specified time window. Clients receive prompt guidance through this app that will provide support and answers, While space is limited, Lokun encourages those seeking a new job to reach out and sign up for Voxer job searching assist for free. Voxer can be easily downloaded to your smart phone.

Julie Lokun has been on the cutting edge of coaching techniques for a decade and has mitigated her client’s challenges in terms of their job search. Lokun, a Juris Doctorate and master’s Life Coach understands the ever-present toll of the global pandemic is the backdrop for how lives are navigated these days. It has created a foundational shift in how Americans are navigating their lives. The essence of the human experience has deteriorated with the lack of social interaction, job opportunities, familial anchors and shifts of everyday routines. This isolating experience has been a direct cause in the uptick of presenting diagnosis of anxiety and depression. And the individual experience, as we self-reflect, has contributed to lower self-esteem in both adults and their children. By introducing Voxer coaching to her clientele, Lokun reports a 95% increase in job search satisfaction.

In April, the Journal of the American Medical Association underscored the point that economic stress, social isolation, reduced access to religious services and the collective anxiety Americans experienced increased firearm sales and healthcare worker suicides.

Parenting, too, has proven to be greatly affected by the onset of pandemic stressors. A University of Oregon shows that parents with children under 5 are the most stressed. Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, too, found that 61% of parents with youngsters aged 5, 6 and 7 years of age experienced the feeling of being more “nervous, anxious, or on edge” because of the pandemic.

With the seemingly loss of control, Voxer Coaching, is an innovative tool Lokun and her team utilize to gaining a sense of control over their career search. “My clients range from a variety of demographics and experiences, but what they all have in common is that they have all been hit hard by the pandemic”, Lokun states. Lokun continued, “With the onset of heightened worry, specifically to finding a new job, Voxer coaching has given those seeking my guidance an extra layer of support”.

While Voxer coaching is an integral tool in Lokun’s coaching she recognizes and utilizes an abundance of free resources are available online to support this rebirth of how we approach our career and lives. Lokun is known in the industry at providing white glove coaching services at a reasonable price point. Lokun offers up a nationwide-community empowerment group that meets weekly to discuss various topics and support authenitic connections. "I am always searching for useful tools that can integrate easily into people's lives that really add value to their journey.

Kathryn Perry New Vice President of Lending at Park State Bank & Trust

Kathryn Perry, Vice President of Lending, Park State Bank & Trust

The recent COVID crisis shone a spotlight on community banks and the vital connection they have to America’s small businesses.

I have spent many years mentoring small businesses, and my new position with the bank offers a further opportunity to invest in our local community and help small businesses grow.”

— Kathryn Perry, VP of Lending

WOODLAND PARK, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, September 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Park State Bank & Trust (PSBT) recently announced that Kathryn Perry was hired as Vice President of Lending. In April, Perry joined PSBT as a temporary contractor to manage the PPP lending process during the height of the COVID crisis. As of August 1, she has become a permanent team member and continues to oversee COVID relief measures, manages the Loan Administration team and has taken on a mixed loan portfolio.

Perry is now available for both consumer and commercial lending. She has come full circle back into the banking world after beginning her banking career with the Resolution Trust Corporation and Citibank in the 1980’s and 90’s. Her love of the banking world stems from her passion for small businesses.

“I did not intend to go back into banking, but COVID changed a lot of things for many people. When PSBT committed to participate in the PPP program, I was able to offer additional assistance to facilitate the program, instead of the bank having to pull the loan officers away from continuing to serve and build their existing portfolios,” said Perry.

During the PPP process, in the April to August lending window, Perry processed applications from nearly 400 local small businesses, completing 215 loans for just over $5 million. “More than 1050 local jobs were protected, at least temporarily,” said Perry, “and we’re still working on more assistance and more recovery.” PPP loans were made to every qualified applicant, regardless of whether they were a current PSBT customer. “As we anticipate a second round of PPP lending for those businesses most severely impacted by COVID restrictions, PSBT stands poised, ready to facilitate getting help to those businesses as quickly as possible,” Perry added.

It was a natural segue for Perry to make the move into further developing the bank’s small business lending program in Teller, Park, Fremont and even El Paso counties. “If you can see Pikes Peak, PSBT wants to serve you. My goal is to get out and about into all those communities to let people know that if you are ready to take your goals to the next level, PSBT is here to serve you,” she said.

The recent COVID crisis shone a spotlight on community banks and the vital connection they have to America’s small businesses. Over 80% of PPP loans were originated by true community banks, demonstrating their ability to serve local businesses in a way that national banks cannot or will not.

“I love interacting with small businesses,” said Perry. “The challenges that our sole proprietors and our local small businesses face are numerous and ever changing. Most of our small businesses started from the owners having a unique talent. Being good at running a business doesn’t necessarily go hand and hand with that wonderful unique talent that’s serving the community, and that’s where we can support with resources to strengthen businesses.” Perry continued.

“I have spent many years mentoring small businesses, and my new position with the bank offers a further opportunity to invest in our local community and help small businesses grow. Some people think that they can’t qualify for a loan. I say that you never know until you try,” said Perry. “Sometimes getting a loan can be the springboard to take a family or small business to the level that they could have never achieved without that assistance. We have a wide array of options available and even if a loan is not the cards right now, our goal is to look at all the factors and determine what it will take to get to the approval.”

Perry explained that confidentiality is paramount to all of the staff at PSBT. “Any community member, no matter who they are, can feel completely safe, knowing that personal information and every other personal detail is kept strictly private, with only necessary team members involved in any transaction.”

When asked what makes Park State Bank & Trust different from other financial institutions that are available in our community, Perry said, “Particularly in this most recent crisis, locals got to see the beauty of having a true community bank. It’s all about relationships. I have lived in the community for nearly 20 years, raised my kids here. This bank understands the challenges that our local residents and our local small businesses face. We’re in the trenches with you – that’s what a community bank is all about. PSBT is still locally and privately held, and the majority owners have been in banking in Colorado now for four generations. We pride ourselves on being YOUR community bank.”

“Everybody knows that PSBT, along with other local banks, faced significant challenges during the last financial crisis. The difference with this financial crisis is that Park State Bank and Trust is as strong as it’s ever been. We are able to look outward to serve, not inward to recover. We are ready to stand with the community to get through these challenges. We are here to make investment in the community to see our small businesses expand and grow.”

# # #
About Perry: After graduating from Texas Christian University with a Bachelor of Science degree, Kathryn went to work for the Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC) resolving failed savings and loans in Texas. In addition to consolidating the single family loan portfolios of 13 failed thrifts and selling that portfolio on the secondary market, Kathryn spent time in credit analysis, appraisal review and loan workout. Serving as an Assistant Vice President for Citibank in the 1990’s, she was responsible for financial analysis for the Insurance Division.

Most in Woodland Park know Kathryn as the CEO for many years of CHOICES, the pregnancy and parenting centers in Woodland Park and Cripple Creek. As a 20-year resident of Colorado and 17-year resident of Woodland Park, Perry is grateful for the privilege of living and working in this community.

Rise in number of millennial parents in the U.S. is one of the main factors that drives the demand for probiotics for infant and kids, owing to their different approach to parenting than the previous generations.

CEOGC’s Head Start Program Prepares to Start School Year with New Safety Measures

CLEVELAND, OHIO, UNITED STATES, September 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cleveland — On Tuesday, September 8, students will return to the Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland’s Early Head Start and Head Start centers for their first day of the 2020-2021 school year — after an extended summer break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is an unusual time for everyone, and as we plan to reopen school, students, parents, teachers, and the community have many questions,” said Dr. The Wilson, VP of Children & Families. “We are excited to return to the classroom, but we are definitely prioritizing student and staff health and safety.”

Here are some changes you can expect as we start the new school year:

• Health and safety precautions: each child will have his or her temperature taken at drop-off each day. A temperature of 100°F or above, or other symptoms of COVID-19, will be means for exclusion. A health assessment must also be completed at drop-off. This will help us monitor students for any symptoms of or exposure to COVID-19.
• Masks: every staff member is required to wear a mask during the day. Children are encouraged, but not required, to wear masks as well.
• Additional detailed cleaning and sanitizing: all high-touch areas will be cleaned and disinfected as they are used throughout the day. Each center will be cleaned and disinfected nightly, with an additional deep cleaning every Monday.
• A different classroom set-up: each child will have his or her own bin of school supplies, which will not be shared with other classmates. Each child will also have his or her own table for eating and working. When students are on the shared mat, each child will have his or her own designated spot to allow for distance between the children.
• Class sizes: There will be no more than 6 children in an Early Head Start classroom, and no more than 9 children in a Head Start classroom. Each classroom will have 2 teachers.

Additionally, our center’s hours have changed. Each site will be open from Tuesday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. We are also offering a virtual program for this school year. If you’re interested in this option, please call (216) 589-9922.

Head Start offers an age-appropriate learning environment to income-eligible Cuyahoga County residents with children aged 3 to 5. CEOGC’s Early Head Start program offers a nurturing environment for newborns, aged 0-3, to grow. It is high-quality and FREE to income-eligible families.

Breakout film director Antonio James built the new social platform to deliver, discuss, discover, and enhance the consumption of daily news.

People need a platform where they feel free to express themselves without fear of virtual jails, suspensions, or being too Black, as can happen on other platforms”

— Antonio Dewayne James

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — ATLANTA—August 27, 2020—Antonio James, director of the films Trey the Movie and Resolution Song, has launches GossipDepot.com, a centralized, user-run soapbox where people can post the hottest gossip, news, interviews and memes of the moment. User-generated content on the site includes breaking news, confessionals, deals and coupons, personal secrets, recalls, celebrity gossip and more. James envisions the site as an online destination that fosters dialogue between community leaders and millennials all around the world by showcasing all gossip on the same worldwide feed in real time — an experience free from predetermining algorithms.

“People need a platform where they feel free to express themselves without fear of virtual jails, suspensions, or being too Black, as can happen on other platforms,” James said. “This is the environment we are creating with Gossip Depot. It’s the new barbershop, church and political corner. We put it online so the world can gossip anywhere and all day and night.” To this end, the site plans to host a virtual 2020 presidential debate.

James had originally intended to launch the site in early 2021, but he decided to move the start date up due to world events. He noted, “With all that’s going on in the world today, I made the decision to launch the platform early, because people are angry and scared right now. They need somewhere to constructively release.” While the site entertainment-oriented, it is highly capable of authentic, relevant, and informational discussions with professional reporters, bloggers, politicians, and influencers from around the world on a single news feed.

GossipDepot.com fulfills its mission by dividing gossip into dozens of unconstrained topics, each accessible by clicking the Topic Box. Users add gossip to each topic in the form of hyperlinks to external news articles, microblogging, or by going pro and adding media to their own gossip. For a limited time, users who sign up will receive free gossip space to add media to their gossips. The site is expected to have a high volume of content related to health and fitness, sports, entertainment news, parenting and being petty – to name a few.

Gossipers on the site are able to comment, add emojis, subscribe, message, and easily share gossip to other platforms while also interacting directly with other Gossipers worldwide in real time. Users can start gossiping September 1, 2020 simply by signing up using any faux gossip name, verifying their real email address, and pushing the bright green “+ gossip” button. The site empowers users to become their own reporters by uploading news, shoutouts, and gossip that they see in their hoods, their environment, and about the people around them. For GossipDepot.com, there is no fake news—just straight up raw news, shout outs, and gossip coming directly from main street.

People who wish to support GossipDepot.com can do so by purchasing the gossip storage that enables users to add various forms of media, including audio to their gossip. The company is seeking 1 million gossipers and $100 million valuation before the end of the year. To summarize, GossipDepot.com is concluding its development phase, allowing the first 1 million Gossipers access to the site starting September 1, 2020.
