Letter From the Editor
One Month Update: 4 Lbs. Lost; 4 Billion Salads Eaten
k. Maybe not 4 billion. But it feels that way. As I vowed to commemorate Lexington Family Magazine’s 15th anniversary by losing 15 pounds before our Summer Camp Fair on April 13, I consulted a local Registered Dietitian – Carolyn Dennis. Carolyn is a veteran of the food wars, fighting to make school lunches healthier and Kentucky thinner. I wasn’t looking for a radical crash diet. Just sensible, practical guidelines. A game plan, if you will. The good news? Carolyn advised me to eat often. Sadly, not much food was involved. Unless you love vegetables. I can eat vegetables – the green, leafy kind – all day long.

Which I do. I discovered the chicken cashew salad at Culver’s and eat that regularly. And I’m certain that I singlehandedly keep the Palomar Panera in business. Some of my progress is attributable to an improved diet. The rest is thanks to more exercise. Again, I’m not trying anything crazy, like training for a marathon. At the health club, I stretch and then alternate between the treadmill, StairMaster and stationary bike. I’m not setting any records, but I did lose a few pounds, and I’m happy with my progress.

Downtown Lights Up The Holidays
By Lesley Iwinski
The Importance of Drawing Boundaries “Did you wear my sweater without asking?” “Bobby, this is the third time I’ve had to bring your lunch to school this week.” “I fed your gerbil again.” “Jennifer, have you taken my eyebrow tweezers again?!!??” These are the laments of family members whose boundaries have been violated. We know when ours have been crossed, but understanding boundaries isn’t so easy. According to Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, “a boundary is a ‘property line’ that defines a person; it defines where one person ends and someone else begins… A child [is no different and] needs to know where she begins, what she needs to take responsibility for, and what she doesn’t need to take responsibility for.” When parents forget their boundaries, they are inclined to try to make everything better, to rescue and to take over. The result? Children can feel that they are unheard, incapable and incompetent. Adults feel impatient and resentful. In the example of the forgotten lunch above, the responsibility to remember belongs to Bobby. Dad remembering for him takes the responsibility away from Bobby and deprives him of an opportunity to learn about accountability and consequences. Discovering that he can correct his
mistake with Dad’s support allows Bobby to build the confidence he will need to handle bigger mistakes later on. Lectures and nagging are a poor substitute for experiential learning. Yes, it’s uncomfortable for parents. If your intention is to honor boundaries and teach responsibility, you must find a way to handle that discomfort yourself. Why? Because that lies within your boundaries. Parents need to handle their feelings and problems, and to fulfill their responsibilities as their child’s teacher. A parent’s job is to validate, listen to and support their child. Doing so encourages the child to grow in self-knowledge, courage and confidence. If there is a boundary issue at your house, ask yourself, “To whom does this belong?” Take the time to figure out the answer. Getting clear on your boundaries will allow you the freedom to teach and support your child as he learns to handle what belongs to him. Y

my new heartbeat s a parent of a toddler, it can be difficult to find time and energy to create a nutritious meal. That’s not a problem for me however, because I’ve spent the past few nights eating crow. When I was pregnant I waddled around with such high and mighty ideas of how I would parent. Then I actually had a baby. I remember a pediatric dentist telling us a child should ditch the pacifier by age 3. I tsked tsked that dentist.
Now I just think, Katie Saltz “Yeah, I didn’t have time to do laundry either. Well done on remembering the pants at all.” I don’t think that parents who buy the occasional Happy Meal or allow an extra episode of “Elmo’s World” are bad or

lazy. I think those parents have just learned to pick their battles. If you can work all day, keep a clean house, cook wholesome meals, engage in several hours of stimulating activity with your child and enforce perfect discipline – good for you. But just know that I won’t judge you if you don’t. My new parenting plan is simple. If I can pull off each day where my daughter is fed, clean, happy and loved, then I’m not going to mourn the occasional Pop-Tart or pacifier.

“THREE? That is far too old. My daughter will not have a binky past 12 months!” Now I will just be happy if CeCe kicks the habit by kindergarten. You want your paci, kid? If it gives me enough time to make a phone call without you trying to bite me, take it. I find myself backtracking on many declarations of my “perfect parenting plan.” Those amazing, organic meals I anticipated making every day? Now I salute that exhaustedlooking woman in the grocery store giving her daughter a strawberry Pop-Tart. “Yes, sister, I also count that as a serving of fruit.” Your baby is wearing a red shirt, orange pants and two different kinds of socks? Pregnant Katie would have silently judged you.

Mission of Hope Needs Toys
ission of Hope, a Christian charity in Knoxville that serves the poorest counties in Appalachia, many of them in Eastern Kentucky, needs your help to “Spread the
Hope.” This marks the 17th year of MOH’s annual Christmas Drive, a campaign that brings NEW toys, food, clothing and hygiene products to more than 17,500 children at 27 rural, elementary schools. At least 85% of the students at these schools receive free or reduced lunch and are trapped in grinding poverty that has spanned generations. At Christmas, MOH Volunteers from more than 40 churches, including NorthEast Christian Church in Lexington and Versailles Baptist Church, set up a “toy store” in each of the schools. As students and faculty gather round the “store,” the Volunteers pull back the wrapping, and the faces of grateful children light up brighter than a Christmas Tree. The drive to collect NEW toys, food, clothing and hygiene products runs Friday, Nov. 16-Monday, Dec. 3, and you can help by contributing to the MOH Big Blue Barrels. The Barrels can be found at the following locations in the greater Lexington area: All three YMCA’s in Lexington, Monkey Joe’s, Lexington Dance Factory, Legacy Gymnastics, Premier Athletics, Kids Place, Chick-fil-A, Cici’s Pizza, Curves, Valvoline, Appalachia Regional Healthcare and Lexington Family Magazine.

Who You Gonna Call?
When Aging Parent Needs Help, Local Senior Centers Provide Answers
t is the moment that every child of an aging parent dreads. You receive a phone call – your mom or dad has fallen, or has forgotten to pay the utility bills or has left something on the stove and started a fire. You realize that the day has come when your parent or parents can no longer live alone. You need help. Who are you going to call first? Lexington Family asked that question of Marie Smart, the Family Care Specialist at the UK Sanders-Brown Center on Aging. “Your first call should be to your county’s Senior Citizen Center,” Smart said. “Every county in the country has one. They have a mandate to provide information and referrals for every senior citizen.” Shannon Gordon, a Social Worker with the Lexington Senior Center (Info: 278-6072) located at the corner of Nicholasville Road and Alumni Drive, regularly fields calls from the panicked children of aging seniors. Her job is to sort out the family’s needs
By Laurie Evans and steer family members to agencies that can provide help. A senior’s financial situation plays a big role in determining what Gordon recommends. “It’s the first thing we talk about. If you have money, you have options,” she said. For seniors who can afford in-home help or long-term care, Gordon recommends agencies and facilities that fit their needs. For those with fewer financial resources, she can match them with agencies and programs that cover costs beyond Medicare and provide assistance in applying for those programs. Gordon often receives calls from
people living outside the area who have parents who live in Lexington. The staff can be a valuable resource for families trying to deal long distance with aging parents. The Senior Center also provides seniors with classes in exercise, aerobics, yoga and tai chi, plus social events such as bingo, line dancing, card playing groups and art and history classes. The UK Elder Care Program (Info: 3234600) can offer UK employees referrals for services, equipment or facilities even if the elderly parent lives out of state. The Sanders-Brown Center on Aging (Info: 323-6040) offers clinical care for families focused on Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Y
Storytelling Helps Engage Alzheimer’s Patients
or family members and caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients, one of the biggest hurdles is communicating with a person who can no longer remember. Sharing photos of grandchildren with a grandparent who doesn’t remember them can be frustrating for patient and caregiver. A new program provides people with a method of communicating with patients with Alzheimer’s that doesn’t depend on memories.

Time Slips is “an improvisational storytelling method that replaces the pressure to remember with the freedom to imagine.” Although Time Slips offers a training program and can certify caregivers to be facilitators of the program, anyone can use the idea to promote communication with their loved ones. The idea is simple. Find
baby playing in a sandbox. Show the photo to a person with dementia and ask what is happening in the photo. Many patients with Alzheimer’s and other related dementias retain the ability to make up stories long past
the time they have lost the ability to remember the past. Anne Basting, founder and director of Time Slips, coauthored a study published in “The Gerontologist,” which revealed that storytelling made people more engaged and alert. It also showed that staff members in elder care facilities viewed their patients more positively. Because it is possible to use the Time Slips concept with or without training, it is a valuable tool for family members as well as certified caregivers. Info: www.timeslips.org. Y

Expands With Elegant Encore Centre
esley Village Senior Living Community in Wilmore is expanding with an addition to its Community Center called the Encore Centre. The Encore Centre will be a threestory, 45,000 square-foot addition that features 28 apartments, including five garden terrace apartments on the top floor. The $8.5 million addition also will include an indoor exercise and therapy pool, movie theater, café, beauty salon and spa therapy area. The garden terrace suites – the addition’s crowning feature – offer gracious apartments on the third floor, with panoramic views of the Wilmore countryside.
The addition will include one, two and three-bedroom apartments and will expand Wesley Village’s capacity from 152 residents to nearly 200. Such expansion came at the right time, according to Director of Marketing Susan Blankenship. “We believe there is a demand for this,” she said. “And the Baby Boomers are going to want as many choices as possible.” The name chosen for the building was also appropriate, said Glenda Creech, President and CEO of Wesley Village. “We call it our Encore Centre because our residents have all lived lives worthy of an encore,” she said. The building will be completed by 2014 and will connect the Community
Center to Hager Manor. Apartments will be available for sale and rent. Recently, Wesley Village added a porte cochere – a spacious covered patio – to the Community Center. This addition will shield residents and visitors from the weather when entering the Community Center. The Community Center, opened in 2005, includes an elegant dining room, a performing arts room, library, art gallery and exercise rooms. “We’re always cutting edge and the Encore Centre is a new adventure for us,” Blankenship said. “We are celebrating life on centre stage and it’s time for us to have an encore.” Y

dealing with grief
Help Yourself Heal During the Holidays
olidays are often difficult for anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. Along with joy, the holidays can spark feelings of sadness, loss and emptiness. As you approach the holidays, remember that grief is both a necessity and a privilege – it comes as a result of giving and receiving love. Don't let anyone take your grief away. Love yourself. Be patient with yourself. And allow yourself to be surrounded by loving, caring people. Although there is no single way to take away emotional pain, simple guidelines can help people cope during the holidays. Milward Funeral Directors, in collaboration with Hospice of the Bluegrass, will host Holiday Hope, featuring Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D., an internationally noted author, educator and grief counselor. The program is free and will be held at the Celebration Center of Lexington, 1509 Trent Boulevard on Monday, Nov. 12, 7-9 p.m.
Cardinal Hill Outpatient Services Our Outpatient Program treats children and teens with a wide variety of medical and congenital problems and developmental issues. • ADD and ADHD • Amputation • Autism • Cerebral Palsy • Degenerative Joint Disease • Developmental Abnormalities • Down Syndrome • Juvenile Arthritis • Learning Impairments
• Multiple Trauma • Muscular Dystrophy • Neuromuscular Disorders • Orthopedic Injuries • Scoliosis • Sensory Integration Issues • Spina Bifida • Voice Disorders
and relatives who understand that the holiday season can increase your sense of loss. Be with friends who allow you to talk openly about your feelings. t Mention the person who has died in your holiday conversations. t Do what is right for you during the holidays. Well-meaning friends and family often try to prescribe what is best. Instead of going along with their plans, focus on your needs and share them with your friends and family. t Plan ahead for family gatherings. Decide which family traditions you want to continue and which new ones you would like to begin. t Renew or express your faith during the holidays. If your faith is important, you may want to attend a holiday service or special religious ceremony.
During Holiday Hope, Dr. Wolfelt will answer questions and make suggestions to help you better cope with your grief during this joyful, yet painful Alan D. Wolfelt time of year. Here are a few general guidelines: t Talk about your grief during the holidays. Expressing your feelings is healthy and beneficial. t Be tolerant of your physical and psychological limits. Feelings of loss may leave you fatigued. Respect what your body and mind are telling you. t Eliminate unnecessary stress and don't overextend yourself. Be sure to set aside alone time. Realize that merely "keeping busy" won't distract you from your grief. t Surround yourself with supportive, Straight comforting people. Identify friends

Newborns Often Develop Strange Rashes
ewborn babies are strange enough as it is to most new parents. To add to the strangeness, they sometimes are born with or develop strange rashes. The most serious newborn rash is fortunately one of the rarest – herpes simplex, which consists of several water blisters or pimples clustered together. Developing within the first four weeks after birth, herpes simplex resembles fever blisters that adults get on their lips. Call your healthcare provider if you suspect your newborn has this rash. Erythema toxicum is a harmless rash that occurs in at least half of all newborns by 2 to 3 days of age. This rash consists of red blotches with small central white or yellow spots resembling pimples that last about two weeks. When clustered, they can easily be mistaken by parents for herpes simplex. Milia are tiny white bumps resembling little whiteheads. They are most common on the nose and cheeks but can occur anywhere. About 40% of babies develop milia by 4 or 5 days of age. The bumps usually go away in one or two months. Miliaria rubra (heat rash) consists of little red bumps, possibly with a little clear fluid in their centers. They are caused by sweat
gland obstruction in areas of the body that have been overheated. The bumps can last from hours to days. Treat them by undressing and cooling off the affected areas. Neonatal pustular melanosis occurs in 5% of African-American newborns and less than 1% of Caucasians. The rash – sometimes present at birth – consists of small pustules with no surrounding redness that will pop, leaving behind a darkly pigmented spot with a surrounding scale. The spots gradually fade after three to four weeks. Acne neonatorum occurs in up to 30% of newborns. It looks just like teen acne and is triggered by hormones (usually the mother’s). It often starts at 3-5 weeks of age and clears up by 4 months of age. Seborrhea is a common condition in newborns, consisting of a red rash with greasy yellow scales. The rash is most commonly found on the scalp (“cradle cap”), face, ears, neck and diaper area. Usually starting in the first month of life, it is often gone by 6 months of age. Its exact cause is unknown. Most newborn rashes are benign and go away on their own. If in doubt about a rash, call your baby’s healthcare provider. Y

They need to avoid destroying their dreams at a young age by the decisions they are making now.” Don Adkins Fayette County Athletics Director sponsored by the Keep It Real – Don’t Drink campaign. Keynote speaker Stephanie Tracy-Simmons, a UK athletic trainer, outlined the latest research that shows the damage alcohol can cause young athletes. Research from the American Athletic Institute shows that one evening of heavy drinking can reverse up to 14 days of a young athlete’s training effect. Drinking interferes with muscle synthesis and repair – a crucial process during training for sports. Alcohol is especially damaging for fast-twitch muscle fibers.

Young athletes may not see immediate negative effects of alcohol use, Adkins said, but they need to appreciate the long-term consequences. “Every young athlete wants to play Division I ball and go to the pros,” he said. “They need to avoid destroying their dreams at a young age by the decisions they are making now.” Y November 2012 | 35
Brain Injury Patients Are Given New Outlook
an you read and understand the words on this page? For some people, simply reading this article, the morning newspaper or their mail is a struggle. That is true for one 65-year-old patient who experienced doubled vision after suffering a stroke in March. While doctors treat the major symptoms of a stroke, problems with a patient’s vision are often overlooked, according to Dr. Rick Graebe, a behavioral optometrist in Versailles. This is why Dr. Graebe uses Vision Therapy – a kind of a physical therapy for the eyes, mind and body – to treat many of his patients. Often when we think of vision, we concentrate only on the eyes, but our visual systems involve much more. The eyes work as a pathway that transmits images into the brain, which then interprets these images. For the 65-year-old stroke patient, his eyes no longer worked in tandem, so his

Many kids are misdiagnosed with ADHD or a learning disability, when the actual problem is vision-related. Even with 20/20 vision, the eyes may not work together. This causes headaches, fatigue, and lack of concentration. Sound familiar? Some doctors would suggest medicating your child. Perhaps a better option is a breakthrough treatment called Vision Therapy.

Mark Roberts: A Calling for Counseling
Lafayette High counselor Mark Roberts possesses two seemingly incongruous skill sets – He’s the rare combination of one gifted with exceptional people skills who also loves the “techy” details called for as the school’s master scheduler. A husband and father of two teenage boys, Roberts admits he loves hunkering down with spreadsheets as he matches students with classes for an enrollment of nearly 2,000. “I love to dot every ‘I’ and cross every ‘T,’ he said. “But I don’t get lost in things. There are people attached to those things, and I really enjoy working with the kids.” Roberts seems to do everything with good cheer. Perhaps that’s what keeps him steady when facing the difficult challenges some students bring to his office. With a diverse student population, Roberts can pivot from advising one student on a university choice to
helping the next student get access to breakfast every day. That’s why there is no such thing as a typical day for Mark Roberts. “I can be helping a student with how to get a B in calculus when sitting on a D, and then a kid comes in with depression thoughts and then that’s the rest of my day,” he said. With a caseload of 240 students, Roberts is prepared to address 240 different scenarios. “Mark has exemplary rapport with students,” Principal Bryne Jacobs said. “He gives them honest feedback and guidance for life at Lafayette and for once they leave here.” Roberts is a Lafayette alum and, for 15 years, worked at Lexington Christian Academy — first as a history teacher and then as the high school’s first counselor. Because LCA was a small school, Roberts wore numerous hats, which was excellent preparation for the Lafayette job he

Roberts says the Lafayette counseling office is where he’s meant to be. “Everything here is student first, so this isn’t a job, it’s a calling,” he said. “Everybody is created to do something, I’m supposed to be right here.”

Scholar Athlete of the Month The Capital ‘S’ in DeStinie Could Stand for Star
DeStinie Graves • School: Tates Creek High • Grade: 12th • Sport: Soccer • Academics: DeStinie has a 3.61 GPA, is taking two college level courses this year, is a peer tutor in math, plays guitar and plans to study sports psychology at UK. Parents: DeShana & Shawn

et’s start by getting the name right. The leading scorer for the Tates Creek High girls soccer team is DeStinie Graves. That’s with a capital “S.” And that big-time “S” equals a bigtime soccer Star, who was offered a scholarship to UK when she was a sophomore. (She accepted and will play for the Wildcats next season.) In her senior year, DeStinie, 17, has led Tates Creek to an undefeated regular season record, scoring 26 goals in 19 games. She was an All-City selection as a sophomore and junior, and All-District and All-State last year. The Kentucky Youth Soccer Assn. named her Player of the Year in 2011, and she was a Gatorade state Player of the Year nominee. A member of the prestigious Olympic Development Program since 2008, DeStinie earned a spot on the US Youth Soccer All-Region team and has attended a national camp in California. In March 2011, she was chosen for the regional team and played for a week in Belgium and Holland. A sleek, 5-foot-9 forward, DeStinie glides gracefully across the field – only a lot faster than everyone else. “She has a really high soccer IQ, and she combines that with superior speed and strength on the high school level,” said her father Shawn, who was her first coach. A natural leader, DeStinie embraces that role, saying. “I like to be a difference maker, the player my
teammates look to when we need a boost. I hope in college I can still be that player.” The star soccer player is also a bright light in the classroom. She has a 3.61 GPA and is currently taking two classes at Tates Creek for college credit – English and physics. She so enjoyed her physics class last year that she told all her friends about it and now twice as many students are enrolled in the course. “I love that we figure out how things work,” she said. DeStinie plans to study sports psychology at UK, and with an eye toward starting her own practice, she is a member of the after-school business club. DeStinie also shines as a volunteer, coaching a youth soccer team and serving as peer tutor in math. She works at a local car wash and has played the guitar (electric and acoustic) since she was 8, so her time management skills are well developed. “She knows how to prioritize,” her mother DeShana said. “We’ve traveled all over to soccer tournaments and she uses that time for homework.” And she’s learned how to write in a moving vehicle. “You can’t put your work in your lap because you can move,” DeStinie said. “And do all your homework on the Interstate. There’s too much starting and stopping in cities.” Imagine that. She’s even a star when it comes to homework advice. Y
