EASY PARENTING -?- by Cathy D. Slaght
Once you learn about how the brain develops, and the fact that the frontal lobe (which determines the personality) isn't developed till around 30, you may get some different perspectives on how you live your life, or raise your children.
Sugar, for example, particularly impairs the frontal lobe.
Yes, the brain needs sugar. Brain cells consume 15 times the glucose of the other cells, but take the glucose in 2 minute "bursts". When SUGAR goes in the blood, glucose rises too rapidly. The brain sends a message to the pancreas to quickly help by releasing insulin.
BUT with high glucose and the resulting high insulin, intellect, reason, and judgment are impaired.
That's just how it all works.
(Now many are trapped, addicted to the brief high but suffering from the long low of all this. Along with wearing our brain and pancreas down, we have the caffeine and sugar crutch- which has broken down the adrenals as well.)
AND on top of all this, there's a habit we've somehow acquired of making sugar a reward. We give it to our children/ourselves to make up for emotional or physical pain, as a reward for hard work, and so on.
There's something else that can damage the frontal lobe, too- not disciplining our children. The development of impulse control- a crucial frontal lobe function- may be impaired.
Impulse control leads to the development of WILL. WILL leads to the power to create our life as we desire, instead of being a victim of impulses or wrong decisions.
Let me try to explain-
If you tell your child, even a young child, NOT to do something, and they disobey, what do you do? In other words, will you give them a swat to the behind, or some sort of discipline, or are you so stressed that you just let it go?
(OR will you just promise them a sugary treat if they behave, so you can further impair the development of the frontal lobe?)
With the "swat", the child will have a choice, next time, to "decide" whether or not they want another swat. In other words, poor impulse control = pain. They learn it is preferable to exercise their WILL to AVOID PAIN.
All this is part of the process of developing a healthy frontal lobe.
It will be well worth it when they are no longer under your watchful eye and are faced with far more significant decisions related to impulse control. And did you notice that the frontal lobe isn't fully developed till age 30? It might even be worth the short term hell on earth to discipline the teens and young adults.
When parents take the easy way out and let the child, regardless of the age, repeatedly get away with poor behavior, they are actually damaging the child's brain development! Now that's old fashioned, of course, the idea of actually disciplining a child. We're too busy. We keep them occupied with the TV or computer games- and give them a little sugar laden food (most processed food is loaded with sugar) as an incentive to "behave".
As a result, we're seeing many problems in our society. One is actually- believe it or not- the rapid rise in people being labeled as "psychopathic or sociopathic". This is believed to be a frontal lobe issue.
A while back I heard a speaker say that 1 out of 3 men are sociopaths. Don't know if that's true, (sounds pretty extreme) but it led me to do some research on what happens when you fall in love with a psychopath. Because it was too lengthy for a post, I put it on a "hub page"-
