For those of our patients raising children, it's important to set them up for success in this ever-changing world. Test scores aren't the end all be all when it comes to your child's progress, but it is a good indication if your child is engaged and on track with their studies.
Below are a few ways to get the best out of your children without seeming like a drill sergeant.
Get Good Sleep
Make sure your child is getting 8 hours of sleep or more each day. Make sure to moderate caffeine intake and make sure they get the right amount of active time so they are tuckered out at the end of the day.
Feeding your child clean, whole foods will help make sure their body and brain are functioning at optimum capacity. We are what we eat, after all.
Balance Study Time and Play Time
It can't be all work and it can't be all play. Make sure to balance study time with playtime, maybe something like a 2:1 ratio. If you can incorporate games into studying, that's some next-level stuff.
Chiropractic care is also a great way to make sure that your child's body and brain are firing on all cylinders. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce growing pains, improve sleep, reduce moodiness, and more. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to schedule you and your child's consultation.
