The first few weeks of this Stay at Home order made me feel like I was pretty awesome. I'm a homebody so the chance to not leave, no activities to rush to and the chance to wear my fav elastic pants all day. I was a little excited for it! I had an organized schedule with great time blocks for work stuff and then e-learning stuff. I was organizing closets on the side and keeping up with three meals a day with some sweet snack breaks.
And then pretty quick things turned into not so awesome...
My balanced work times started to bleed into the scheduled school times. Meals turned into fend for yourself in the pantry, just no talking to me so I can finish up an important work task. Checking off school lessons as we go, turned into papers all over the place, not knowing what day it even is, and no idea if I'm even helping anyone or harming their learning at this point.
One week I'm giving advice on how to balance working from home and e-learning. The...
The kids are sad and we are sad but at this time, we have removed all the toys and fruit from PWC. We hope this helps even more with going directly into rooms, getting that powerful immune boosting adjustment and then heading right out. We ask that you keep your kiddos in the room with you and head out after your adjustment too. It’s so opposite from our usual vibe at PWC but it’s important that each and every person coming in feels safe and comfortable being here. We can't wait for the days of kiddos snacking on fruit, and playing, great conversation with you, and lots of lingering to return!
We know that the best thing to do right now is to make sure we’re all taking great care of each other and ourselves. Most importantly, taking care of our immune systems so that if you do come in contact with the virus, your body can quickly can fight it!
Here’s a list of changes we are doing at PWC:
1. We are consistently wiping down all...
The Gift of Health is here! From now until January 31st, we’re offering $47 exams at PWC. The coolest part about the $47 scans is that of it is being donated towards pediatric chiropractic research! We’ve partnered with the brilliant minds already started with some amazing research at New Zealand Chiropractic College, as well as the National Family Wellness Alliance. At our Epic Impact event in San Diego, $100,000 was already donated and Epic Pediatric offices across the country are committed to raising lots more!
If you yourself have been watching our page and still haven’t called in yet, now is your chance to get started for only a $47 donation to an amazing cause! If someone in your family still hasn’t started, let’s do this (we see you Dad )! If you know a neighbor, friend, or parent that needs us, let them know about the Gift of Health.
Current peeps, grab a stack of Gift of Health coupons at PWC and keep them with you...
‘Tis the season
We just finished the gauntlet that is “the holiday season," we rounded the corner on Thanksgiving and ran headstrong into the Christmas season. Schedules were packed full kiddo’s Christmas programs, office holiday parties are here, and for a lot of families some creative and crazy travel schedule to make sure you can fit in all of the events you had. Then it’s over in one fell swoop and we are staring at all of the “New Year, New You” posts.
Are you going to be a new you? Or is it time to give ourselves some grace, realize our year was filled with mistakes, not good enough moments and we still crushed it? I may have volunteered for a snack I forgot about at my kid's school party but I also remembered 900 other things I volunteered for. Also, note to self, no one likes frosting free, food dye free cookies at a class party so save your money and don't volunteer for cookies next year.
After 12 years of caring for sensory and spectrum kiddos, and about 20 years of constantly reading and learning everything there is to know about them, I can tell you that they really struggle with three main elements of life that all start with the letter C.
In turn, when the right forms of care are applied, the right protocols and methods used, these “3C’s” drastically improve, thus greatly increasing the child’s quality of life. And we all know that when the child gets better with these 3 elements, life for the whole family gets better!
This article is not one meant to spell out the entire scientific mechanisms behind sensory and spectrum disorders (that’s what the Perfect Storm workshop does), but to sum that all up what we know is that these kids are very much locked into and “stuck” in a state of Sustained Sympathetic Dominance (SDS). The sympathetic system is the “gas pedal” side of the Autonomic Nervous...
