Relax, American Parents, You’re Doing Just Fine

By

LISA A. BeACH

P

arenting – you’re doing it wrong. At least that’s the take-home message American parents regularly hear. Just scan the ever-burgeoning parenting section in a local bookstore for hundreds of titles on how to “do” every aspect of parenting better, from potty training to Ivy League preparation. Our bundle of joy turns us into a bundle of nerves as we try to perpetually raise the bar on our own parenting skills. As The Washington Post journalist Brigid Shulte points out in NPR’s Tell Me More, we’re an achievement culture, always wanting to be our best and pushing our kids to be their best. We feel the push-pull of simultaneously being overinvolved and overscheduled, yet not driving our kids hard enough to achieve perfection. We’re also perplexed, as new parenting styles pop up every year, making us second-guess our parenting skills. In the end, many American parents feel dazed, confused and filled with self-doubt, wondering if we’re doing it all wrong. It’s all very draining. “We’re so very afraid of getting it wrong that we overdo it to try to get it right,” says Julie LythcottHaims, former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford University, in an essay published in the 2016 edition of The Parents League Review. But, are American parents really that bad? Do we truly suck at raising our own kids? No, and we need to stop thinking that we’re doing everything wrong. Fortunately, more than 50% of parents with children younger than 18 think they do a very good job raising their kids, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey of 1,807 U.S. parents. The findings also show that parents (whether married or single) care a lot about how others view their parenting skills. Roughly nine-inten married or cohabiting parents (93%) say it matters a lot that their spouse or partner sees them as a good parent. What, specifically, are American parents doing right? • More moms breastfeed. Research continues to demonstrate that breastfeeding provides many substantial physical and mental health benefits to both infants and mothers. Increasingly, mothers in the U.S. are heeding the message, according to Child Trends, the nation’s leading nonprofit research organization focused on improving the lives of children, youth, and their families. Between 2000 and 2011, the U.S. saw a growing proportion of infants who were breastfed, with the biggest increase (70 percent) of infants still being

www.childguidemagazine.com

breastfed at 12 months (from 16 to 27 percent). Overall, more than three-quarters of infants were breastfed for at least some duration, an increase of 12 percent (from 71 to 79 percent). • Parents protect their kids and their community through vaccinations. According to a 2015 study in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, vaccination rates among children ages 19-35 months for 2014 remained high. Over 90 percent of children received vaccinations for measles-mumps-rubella (MMR); polio; hepatitis B; and varicella. • Families still eat dinner together. A 2013 Gallup poll of U.S. families shows that, despite our busy lifestyle, the majority of U.S. families still eat dinner together. Among adults with children younger than 18, more than 50 percent eat dinner together at home at least six nights a week. • Parents spend more time on educational activities than previous generations. We read to our kids, ask them questions, play math games, and teach life skills. Americans of all socioeconomic backgrounds devote increasing amounts of time on stretching kids’ minds compared to our parents or grandparents, says the Institute for Family Studies. Although parents with higher levels of education are more likely to devote time to educationally enriching activities than less educated parents, in general, we’re all doing better than we did just a few decades ago. • Parents set a good example of civic involvement. According to 2014 statistics from the Corporation for National and Community Service, 32.7% of parents volunteer, donating 2.3 billion hours of service in activities such as fundraising, tutoring, mentoring, coaching and collecting/distributing food. And 2013 data shows that 96.1% frequently talk with neighbors, 44.5% of parents participate in groups and/or organizations, and 89.8% of parents engage in “informal volun-

teering” (such as helping out neighbors). • Teens get high marks for giving back. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, teenagers (16- to 19-year-olds) continue to have a relatively high volunteer rate, at 26.4 percent, compared to 20- to 24year-olds (18.4 percent), and 25 to 34 years (22.3 percent).

• Substance use among teens is declining. Recent findings from NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse shows a decreasing use of alcohol, cigarettes, and many illicit drugs over the last five years among American 8th, 10th, and 12th graders—many to their lowest levels since this survey’s inception. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office of Adolescent Health reports similar findings, citing that tobacco use by adolescents has declined substantially in the last 40 years. And a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration notes that, from 2002 to 2013, the rate of underage drinking decreased 6.1 percent. • Teen pregnancies and sexual activity are declining. According to 2014 findings by the Guttmacher Institute, the U.S. teenage pregnancy rate reached its lowest point in more than 30 years (57.4), down 51% from its peak in 1990. And a 2015 study from the Centers for

Child Guide

Disease Control and Prevention notes that teen sexual activity dropped dramatically over the past 25 years. In 2011–2013, 44% of female teenagers and 47% of male teenagers aged 15–19 had experienced sexual intercourse, declining significantly (by 14% for females and 22% for males) since 1988. • High school graduation rates reach record high. In 2015, the U.S. Department of Education announced that the U.S. high school graduation rate has steadily increased for the past four consecutive years, rising to an all-time high in the 2013-14 school year, with 82 percent of teens graduating. The bottom line: Relax, American parents – you’re doing just fine. Lisa Beach is a freelance journalist and copywriter.

Choosing a summer camp

W

ith so many summer camps to choose, how do you find the right camp for your child to attend? Along with knowing your own child, don’t forget to look at the choices with them, they may surprise you. Once you have made a decision, getting ready can also be an adventure and how you prepare can help your youngster feel more excited about their choice. If choosing an academic camp, anything from robotics to journalism, remember your child needs to be interested, not an expert. When selecting an adventure camp, its now possible to do everything from canoeing or wilderness exploration to rock climbing. Art camp, another popular choice is the perfect experience for the creative child because they focus on developing a child’s talents. Or consider a religious camp where kids experience traditional camp activities but there is prayer time, Bible studies and other religious services throughout the session. Sports camp is another option. They include baseball, football, basketball, lacrosse, cheerleading to name a few, and many offer a professional athlete or coach so children can learn from experienced people in that sport. There are also special needs camps where medical staff and counselors are available to provide the best possible experience while the kids bond with others doing activities geared especially for them. So why send your child to camp? First of all, summer camp is a great opportunity for your child to become more independent and to socialize away from home. Camp can help develop a special interest, and you never know where that interest might lead. Included in this is a chance for your child to meet new peers instead of the same kids they see year after year in school. This allows them to break out of their everyday routine and change how they are perceived. If your child is the “quiet” one at school, this can be a chance for them to be more outgoing. The most obvious benefit of camp is the mental stimulation and physical activity. Camp means activities no matter what type, even tech camps provide outdoor time. When added to the chance to learn independence, decision making and self-confidence, camp can be the perfect experience for your child to recognize what goes into good decision making when mom or dad are not around. What if your child gets nervous as leaving day approaches? According to family therapist Michael Ungar, Ph.D. there are different degrees of homesickness and its important to deal with them appropriately. He added about one in twenty-five children suffers from Separation Anxiety Disorder. Ungar advises that if you think your child might be one of them, seek the help of a medical professional first. Then, practice shorter separations, maybe an hour or two to start building to nights away before you attempt to send them to sleep-away camp. Remember, there is an impressive list of factors that good camping experiences provide for children, whether it is sleep-away camp or day-camp. Just be prepared to work through it with your child rather than doing everything for them.

More to Discover at Discovery Station BY JEANNE-MARIE

G

WILLIAMS

abriel and I have long appreciated trips to Discovery Station. Located in downtown Hagerstown, it is close to home, economical, and a place Gabriel loves to run free and play hard. He has enjoyed time there since he was so small that he was only able to participate well in the toddler area. As Gabriel has grown, he still likes trips to Discovery Station and is better able to appreciate the exhibits and activities, plus the exit tantrums have ceased. During the second half of 2017, Discovery Station made improvements so that young visitors would find it more interactive and fun. One of the improvements is a large art area, the STEAM Machine, on the second floor. The STEAM Machine combines STEM principles with artistic flair. Not only serving as an area to foster creative fun, special programs are offered in this area on most Saturdays, and they are included in the cost of admission. We decided to visit recently when Discovery Station was offering shaving cream art. When we signed in and paid admission, the cashier pointed out that it is best to start in the STEAM Machine and work your way down so that any painted projects have time to dry before they are carried out to go home. Seeing that we arrived right before the program began, we were headed there anyway. Once we arrived in the STEAM Machine, Director of Operations, Brittany Wedd, welcomed us and encouraged Gabriel to pick out paper. He selected his paper and sat down at the table with Brittany where she began talking to him about the project. Sincere and friendly, Ms. Wedd immediately had Gabriel comfortable interacting with her and actively participating in the discussion while creating his art. After doing a great job creating shaving cream art, Gabriel and I spent some time exploring the other areas of the STEAM Page 6

Machine. Gabriel’s favorite thing to do was build towers of varying sizes and complexity with large blocks and then run at them from across the room to knock them down. I suggested that he could spend time making artwork or drawing on the walls, but he decided it was time to investigate the other areas in the museum. In addition to the STEAM Machine, the second floor has a puppet theater with comfy chairs, a party room and snack area, and baseball, Civil War, and train displays. There is also a room focused on food and nutrition; this room contains a walk through cow. Gabriel liked walking through and pretending it smelled bad as he slid down the slide at the cow’s back end. He also spent a good bit of time playing with other children he met as they loaded up shopping carts with play food and pretended to ring them up. After we made our way downstairs, Gabriel enjoyed time in the LEGO® and robotics area, galaxy and earth sciences displays, a room full of items from Japan, the dinosaur play space, and the Titanic display, which includes a 15-foot-long model of the ship, before we ended up in the room with the airplanes and race car ramp. We loved that Gabriel could climb in and out of the Cessna and pretend to fly it, and he did so multiple times. He also made more friends at the car ramp. They spent a considerable amount of time building and racing cars down the ramp. At one point, I caught Gabriel dumping a bin full of cars down the ramp and shouting, “Look! It’s a car-a-lanche!” Discovery Station has also replaced the toddler area with a new play area, Discovery Town, for very young children approximately five to six or younger. Discovery Town features several play

Child Guide

buildings that represent businesses such as a veterinarian office, dentist, doctor, or fire station, as well as a city park area. Even though Gabriel was a bit over the age range for the area, he enjoyed walking into each of the buildings, with his favorite being the dentist. He liked sitting on the tooth-shaped stools and pretending to work on the plush tiger in the room with an instrument he referred to as a “crowbar for the tiger’s teeth.” Another new feature on the first level is the Coral Reef exhibit. The exhibit features several colorful panels with many interesting facts for kids to learn about coral reefs. Gabriel was a little fascinated, yet a little horrified, to learn that his sandcastles at the beach contain bits of parrotfish poop because sand contains bits of exoskeleton passed by creatures that eat coral. While learning about coral reefs, Gabriel also enjoyed using felt creatures to build a coral reef scene on a wall and examine sea shells and a turtle shell with a magnifying glass. It is always difficult to get Gabriel to leave the museum when we need to go. There was begging for 10 more minutes or one more trip through the airplane. But knowing there is always something fun happening at Discovery Station, I promised him a repeat visit soon. Upcoming events include the Superhero 5K in May and Little Yogi’s Discovery and Beach Party in June. The Coral Reef exhibit will be available through August, but after that, Discovery Station will feature a new exhibit about North America wolves.

Preparing for a Positive Camp Experience

W

hen it comes to having a successful experience at camp, preparation is the key. Something as simple as including your child in the search and planning visits so he can see where he will potentially attend can make him feel more at ease. Having sleepovers with family or friends can be helpful as well. “Practice emotional and verbal cues and openly share with your child why you are so excited for him to have a camp experience and what to expect,” said Tom Rosenberg, President/CEO of the American Camp Association. Your attitude will be contagious. Plan to send your child with some personal items that make him feel at home. Most camps have lists of recommendations that you can follow. If the camp offers a precamp orientation or get-together for first-time campers it can be valuable to attend. “Share with your child that his days will be filled with many adventures and friendships, non-stop fun activities and new skills because camp is an opportunity to try new things, take positive risks and become more independent,” said Rosenberg. Reassure your child that he will do well. “Help him understand that he will have caring, nurturing and fun young adult counselors who will keep him safe and help him get the most from his experiences,” said Rosenberg. Many camps spend a lot of time outdoors and expose kids to activities that they may not be able to do at home. Kids attest to the fact that camp can be transformative. “Youth outcomes research found that 96 percent of campers said that camp helped them make new friends and 92 percent of campers said the people at camp helped them feel good about themselves,” said Rosenberg. Kids can become more responsible and learn to appreciate differences. “Camp appears to uniquely promote an appreciation for living in the moment, an affinity

for nature and a willingness to try new things,” said Rosenberg. Make sure the camp you choose is accredited by the American Camp Association because that means it meets the highest standards. Do not be afraid to pose questions as knowledge is power. “Ask the camp’s philosophy and program emphasis; the camp director’s background; how the camp selects, screens and trains its staff members; the counselor-to-camper ratio; the ages of the counselors; how the camp handles homesickness and other adjustment issues; how the camp communicates with camp parents once camp has started; and how the camp cares for a child’s medical and emotional health needs during camp,” said Rosenberg. When you find the right camp, your child may come home as a new and improved person. “Campers’ parents have reported that when their children return home from camp they are more caring, understand the importance of giving, are more equipped to stand up for what they know is right and are willing to be more responsible,” said Rosenberg. There is so much to gain regardless of the type of camp you choose. “A successful camp experience provides young people with opportunities to take positive risks, to learn how to learn, to be more independent and to contribute of themselves generously in a caring,

child-centered community,” said Rosenberg. Kids learn to be responsible for themselves as well as others in the camp setting. “They try new things and learn to make mistakes in a forgiving, emotionally and physically safe environment under the nurturing guidance of fun adult counselors,” said Rosenberg. Camp fosters life skills and excellent traits in kids. Camp is an escape from technology and distractions of everyday living. “They leave their phones and other screen devices at home to have a unique opportunity to live and thrive in a community that is entirely human-powered and human-skills focused,” said Rosenberg. Kids will collaborate with one another and tend to become more creative as a result. Their communication skills also typically improve as they learn to adapt their thinking and apply it to new situations. “They learn to share, care, laugh and find joy in a community where life is less hectic and allows them more opportunity to live in the moment, think and dream,” said Rosenberg. When you share this information with your prospective camper he will likely share excitement and enthusiasm about camp and ask to sign up whether this will be his first year or his fifth. © 2019 Jamie Lober
