M

arch was National Nutrition Month, and earlier this year the Texas Comptroller’s Office released a report that was electronically distributed to many institutions, including your library. This report is entitled The Obesity Crisis in Texas, and it addresses both adult and childhood obesity issues. According to the report, “Obesity has risen even faster in children than adults. According to CDC, the rate of obesity among U.S. children aged six to 11 tripled from 1980 to 2008, from 6.5 percent to 19.6 percent. Among adolescents aged 12 to 19, obesity rates rose even faster, from 5.0 percent to 18.1 percent.17.” It also reports that 20.4 percent of Texas children aged 10 to 17 are obese, compared to 16.4 percent of U.S. children. To read the full report visit http:// www.window.state.tx.us/specialrpt/obesitycost/. The library wants to be responsive to the issues that are impacting our community, so we are making sure that your library has lots of resources for families to learn more about nutrition and to make nutrition fun for children. For parents, we have books like The Family Guide to Fighting Fat published by Texas Children’s Hospital and for children we have picture books and easy readers that make learning about nutrition fun. Additionally, the library is starting a new series of programs on wellness and nutrition for children. Our first program was in March and featured local pediatrician Dr. Amanda Lovett discussing nutrition with parents while children participated in a nutrition-based storytime with books, songs, crafts and healthy snacks. Please look for more programs like this one in the future. For more information or for assistance in locating nutrition resources please contact Cecilia at your library at 6275512. ■

A Paradigm Shift by Scott Tinkham

Dear readers, My wife Kim always had a different way of looking at things and giving people the benefit of the doubt. This story is about that, a paradigm shift if you will. We would be driving and I would be in a hurry as usual for no reason and some inconsiderate jerk would be holding me up driving 10mph below the speed limit and Kim would tell me to relax “you don’t know whats going on with that guy, he could have just lost his job or is coming back form the doctors with bad news and is wondering how to break the news to his wife” I would feel so bad I would slow down and change lanes and sit there in silence feeling sorry for the guy who most likely was being inconsiderate but there was a chance Kim was right. With that said read this story and enjoy your paradigm shift. ■

The Cookie Thief by Valerie Cox

A woman was waiting at an airport one night, With several long hours before her flight. She hunted for a book in the airport shops. Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop. She was engrossed in her book but happened to see, That the man sitting beside her, as bold as could be. Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag in between, Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene. So she munched the cookies and watched the clock, As the gutsy cookie thief diminished her stock. She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by, Thinking, “If I wasn’t so nice, I would blacken his eye.” With each cookie she took, he took one too, When only one was left, she wondered what he would do. With a smile on his face, and a nervous laugh, He took the last cookie and broke it in half. He offered her half, as he ate the other, She snatched it from him and thought... oooh, brother. This guy has some nerve and he’s also rude, Why he didn’t even show any gratitude! She had never known when she had been so galled, And sighed with relief when her flight was called. She gathered her belongings and headed to the gate, Refusing to look back at the thieving ingrate. She boarded the plane, and sank in her seat, Then she sought her book, which was almost complete. As she reached in her baggage, she gasped with surprise, There was her bag of cookies, in front of her eyes. If mine are here, she moaned in despair, The others were his, and he tried to share. Too late to apologize, she realized with grief, That she was the rude one, the ingrate, the thief. How many times in our lives, have we absolutely known that something was a certain way, only to discover later that what we believed to be true ... was not?

Dear Dave, I’m 24-years old, and just got married two months ago. We make $80,000 a year, have our emergency fund and no debt, plus we’ve saved up for a 15 percent down payment on a house. I know you suggest 20 percent, but is 15 percent okay? – Tony

Dear George, I think far too many ladies, in the name of paying for stuff they don’t need, have left the household and the children for the workplace. Many of them didn’t even want to do this; they just felt obligated to do it by people like you. There are a lot of ladies who have sacrificed their ability to be full-time moms on the altar of the car payment. Now, sometimes ladies have to go to work. There’s a time and a place for that kind of thing. But if there’s any way I can financially and budget-wise figure out how mom can be waiting at home with a big hug and a plate full of cookies when that fifth grader walks in the house – and if that’s what she wants to do – then you’re going to find me fighting for her opportunity to do that. There’s no higher calling on the planet than motherhood. We’ve lost that in our culture, and we’re suffering dearly for it. I’m no Neanderthal jerk. I don’t say every mother has to be at home or they’re a bad person. But these days we’ve got very few people who defend full-time, in-the-home motherhood. The inference you’re making is that she’s not helping, or worse, lazy. Why don’t you go take over her job for a week? I think you’ll find out in a hurry there’s not a lazy bone in her body! – Dave

Dear Tony, I don’t have a lot of issues with 15 percent instead of 20 percent. You’ll probably end up having to pay private mortgage insurance, but it sounds like you guys are in good enough shape financially to handle things. However, I generally recommend that couples wait until they’ve been married at least a year before buying a home. Buying a house is huge decision. That’s why I think it’s smart to wait and get to know each other even better before making a decision of this magnitude. Plus, you need to figure out just how close you want to live to your mother-in-law! Seriously, take your time and don’t rush things. There will still be great deals on the market in a year or so, and you’ll be able to save more money, too! – Dave

Dear Dave, My wife and I just relocated for my new job. Right now we’re renting an apartment, and we should make about $15,000 on the sale of our old house. Should we use the money from the sale of our house to pay off all our debt, or go ahead and use it as a down payment on a new home now? – Brian Dear Brian, Traditionally, lots of people would tell you to use the money now to help save up for a down payment. The problem is that I’m not traditional at all. I love real estate, and I want you guys to own your own home again. But even more than that, I want to see you two get out of debt and stay out of debt! I know this wouldn’t be a popular plan with some folks, but if you’ve got no debt – along with a decent, inexpensive place to hang your hat for a couple of years – you’ll be able to save money like crazy for a fat down payment. It will also give you time to become familiar with the area and find a place you both really like. When you lose the debt, Brian, you gain control of your largest wealth-building tool – your income. That’s when the fun begins! – Dave

Dave Says

Dear Dave, I listen to you often and enjoy your radio show, but why don’t you ever ask women to go to work? When a family is broke, and the woman is at home raising one child who is already in the fifth grade, why can’t the wife get a “second job?” – George

Dear Dave, I’m one of five sisters, and our parents’ fiftieth wedding anniversary is just around the corner. My two oldest sisters made plans for a party without consulting the rest of us. Now, they want everyone to chip in $1,000 to help pay for things. I’m trying hard to get out of debt, and I just don’t have that kind of money right now. How can I be fair about this? – Anonymous Dear Anonymous, A $5,000 party is pretty big stuff. Since you weren’t asked about this ahead of time, and had no say in anything, fair would be for you not to pay a dime! That kind of planning without consulting the people involved and helping pay for the event is way out of line. Don’t let your big sisters lay a guilt trip on you, either. This has nothing to do with how much you love your parents. It has everything to do with communication and consideration, or in this case, a lack of these things on their part. Just let them know, in a firm but loving way, what your situation is right now. Tell them you’d be happy to chip in what you can, but it won’t be anything close to $1,000. And tell them next time to check with their little sisters before hatching up an expensive plan like this! – Dave Dave Ramsey For more financial help, please visit daveramsey.com

T

his past April communities across the nation took time to celebrate the Week of the Young Child. The program, now in its 40th year, is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The purpose of the Week of the Young Child is to focus public attention on the needs of young children and their families and to recognize the early childhood programs and services that meet those needs.

TNS Decatur Head Start celebrating “Week of the Young Child” on Tuesday April 12th.

The NAEYC first established the Week of the Young Child in 1971, recognizing that the early childhood years (birth through age 8) lay the foundation for children’s success in school and later life. The Week of the Young Child is a time to plan how we – as citizens of a community, of a state, and of a nation – will better meet the needs of all young children and their families. The 2011 Week of the Young Child was held nationwide April 10-16 and the theme of this years celebration was Early Years are Learning Years. To learn more about the Week of the Young Child or the NAEYC visit them on the web at www.naeyc.org. ■

How to Build a Reputation Worth Standing On “Justice is the first virtue of social institutions, as truth is of systems of thought.” -John Rawls

U

pon entering the business world, it is easy to be overwhelmed with the details of the “startup”. While very necessary but time consuming, this task often keeps us from seeing the whole picture before us. Everything about our business will reflect the reputation that we will stand on. As successful businesspersons, it is a reputation of excellence that we must desire to present to our clients and community. Justice must be a first consideration. It is a vital building block of success. By definition, justice must reflect fairness, consistency, inspiration, and peace. Justice should effect every area of your new or established business. Justice is an integral part of choices made in hiring and employee development. As the employer, you must maintain a vision that looks toward fairness and reflects an unbiased attitude that you desire to represent before the community. What does your vision for your business say about you? Does it reflect fairness and honor? Does this demonstrated attitude prevail in the employees that work with you? Reactions to justice and fairness seem to be inborn, almost hard wired to our brains. It satisfies a basic need and is instinctual in nature. Just as we as business owners expect justice in our personal dealings with the world, our employees and customers demand the same. Justice is consistency. Consistency in product choice and availability, presentation, decorum and sustainability speaks to the current and lasting success of your business. Will you and your guarantees be here when your clients need them? Can you stand on your reputation and see the future? How we perceive our business as a reflection of ourselves can be an inspiration to our employees, clients and community. Inspiration acts as a building block of success. Through this inspiration, peace develops. This is the ultimate goal - to create at atmosphere of peace, and lasting value. A reputation to stand on. Building a business reputation requires day by day, moment by moment attention. Time invested into creating a business that demonstrates fairness, consistency, inspiration and peace changes the community around it and leads to the strength of a community. Be that business. ■

W

ise County once had a post office named Odessa? It was located at what is now Newark? Also, there was among others: Audubon, Mina, Gertrudo, Paschall, Opal, Keown, Brumlow, Gum, and Cottondale. One post office was no more than an old trunk, and the corner of a room. Boonsville’s first post office was located about four miles northwest of the present site of Boonsville, on the banks of Boons Creek, and was still standing until just a few years ago, and still had the letter slot near the door where the stage drivers, cowboys, teamsers and settlers shoved mail into the room. It seems if you lived a few miles fron another post office, had front porch and the wish, you could have a post office! Many of our towns had another name in the beginning? Boyd was called Parkhurst; Rhome, Prairie Point; Balsora, Wild Horse Prairie; Paradise, Paradise Prairie and El Dorado; Decatur, Taylorsville. At one time Sunset was in Wise County! ■

There are three easy steps to finding the perfect camp. So don’t stop here, keep on reading! The first easy step is to become a 4-Her. 4-H is an after school program that provides kids an opportunity to participate in various projects and contest. Some projects include livestock, food and nutrition, clothing, science and technology and many others. There is no fee to join 4-H. To join 4-H simply go to Texas 4-H website http:// texas4-h.tamu.edu. On the right hand side click to join 4-H. Follow the step-by-step process instructed on the website. If you need assistance joining 4-H, contact your local Extension Office. Now t hat you a re enrolled in 4-H, you need to choose your camp. There are so many choices! The 4-H County Camp will be held on July 6th – 8th at the 4-H center in Brownwood, TX. This camp will be open to ages 9-13. Other camps include M.A.S.H camp, SpecTra Camp, Bits, Bots & Bytes Technology Camp, and many more. To find a list of camps and schedules, visit the Texas 4-H website. The final step is to register. Once you have decided which camp you would like attend, you will need to register online. Simply go to the Texas 4-H Center website http://texas4hcenter.tamu.edu/ and on the right hand side click on “register now”. Once again follow the step-by-step process listed on the website. Registration for camps began on March 14th and will continue through May 6th. If any help is needed contact your local Extension Office. Now that you have followed the three steps, you have successfully become a 4-H member and you’re ready for the summer. If you have any questions regarding 4-H or upcoming camps contact your local Extension Office. ■

With Love, Naturally

This Too Shall Pass

F

irst time moms are often surprised at their new life after bringing baby home. You’ve read the books, talked with friends and relatives, registered for all the necessary baby things but now that you’re actually home with this new little person ‘what now?’ He cries all the time, his nights and days are confused, he throws up. There is no time for laundry, cooking dinner, taking a shower, and poor hubby gets no snuggle time. Other cultures understand the stresses in those first weeks after coming home from the hospital. In India, for example, much attention is given to the postpartum patient. The new mom is not allowed to be left alone day or night for the first six weeks after giving birth. All of her meals are fixed for her. She is fed all fresh foods with an emphasis on gently restoring balanced digestion after pregnancy. She is encouraged to sleep while the baby sleeps. Her only responsibility is to breastfeed the baby on demand. She receives massages with oils and is fed a fresh, healthy diet. Literally her family and friends do everything for her. By the end the six week period, mom is well acquainted with her baby. Those first six weeks, which are often the toughest, have passed with ease. There has been no stress for her or baby and by this time, her body has a great start healing from the pregnancy and birth and breastfeeding is established.

Boy would I have loved to have had hot oil massages every day after my children were born. Unfortunately we live in a culture that puts much emphasis on mom during pregnancy but little emphasis during postpartum. Many women jump back on the busy bandwagon just days after giving birth. Getting back into our busy schedules so quickly and not taking care of ourselves is a big contributing factor to postpartum depression. It is the American way to do it all. Interestingly, India has almost no postpartum depression. If you find yourself overwhelmed, tired, wondering “what have I done?”, you are not alone. Find a group of moms that you can connect with, look for a postpartum doula, look for ways to pamper yourself a little and maybe your partner too and remind yourself on those tough days ‘this too shall pass’.■ Wendy Fowler Wendy Fowler is a Certified Doula (Professional Childbirth Coach) and Childbirth Educator with a passion for helping young families thrive.

THE PROCRASTINATING CHILD

Help them say “Sayonara” to that inner slacker.

I

don’t think of myself as a nag. But on any given day in response to my son’s procrastination, I definitely sound the part. Exhibit A: “MOM! I’ll be at Kevin’s playing Rockband” (on his way out the door) at which time my nag switch is suddenly tripped, and I respond: “Is your homework done? Room clean…?” If you have a tween or teen under the roof, you may feel like you battle procrastination issues everyday. But are you a good model yourself? Do you put off housework, bill paying, or getting that report into your boss’s hands before deadline?

Why They Procrastinate

Adolescent kids taking on greater responsibility seem especially vulnerable to procrastination. In The Procrastinating Child: A Handbook for Adults to Help Children Stop Putting Things Off (2002), author Rita Emmett explains that putting things off is simply a bad habit we can all correct. We can fall prey to it at times when we feel overwhelmed, distracted, or helpless. 1. Feeling overwhelmed. Your tween may seem lazy when she is actually feeling swamped. If your child is feels overwhelmed with anxiety about failing an exam or a particular task, her excessive concern may cause her to stall. She may feel stuck and unable to get mentally mobilized. This bad habit may continue into adulthood, jeopardizing her future successes. 2. Fear of failure.   It is important to help kids understand how perfectionism and procrastination often go hand in hand and may be keeping them from greater productivity. Kids need to be taught it is okay to make mistakes and that “not perfect” is completely different than “fail.” A certain comfort level with failure is necessary and healthy. 3. Indecisive behavior. A consistent fear of failure can lead to a pattern of indecisive behavior that author Neil Fiore notes as a warning sign in The Now Habit (2007). He also names low self-esteem and lack of assertiveness as red flags for procrastinating behavior.

“Bee” More Productive

In order to replace procrastination with and “bee” more productive, Emmett has a brilliant strategy for children to take the STING out of feeling overwhelmed. • Select one task you’ve been putting off. • Time yourself and take one hour to accomplish the task. • Ignore everything around you, such as the phone and other tasks • No breaks. One hour is realistic for a middle school student. • Give yourself a reward once the task is complete.

the thought “I don’t want to” into “I wonder what will come?” Sounds simple, but the attitude adjustment is powerful. In a sense, that mindful shift tricks the brain into a more productive mode. 2. Share the book “See You Later, Procrastinator” (2007). This easy to read, hugely entertaining guide geared to adolescents will help them procrastinate less. Espeland and Verdick explain that middleschool is largely about MORE: “More responsibility, more teachers, more subjects, more classrooms, more chores at home…” And when our kids have more to stay on top of, they need good habits that will work for them, not against them. 3. Think positive. To bid farewell to slacking, experts Espeland and Verdick suggest tweens reflect on a time they accomplished something great when they didn’t procrastinate and the good feeling afterward. 4. Learn organization skills. Since everybody can learn more productive habits, Emmett recommends helping children break overwhelming tasks into smaller chunks. If your child has an upcoming Civil War test and simply cannot get the gears in motion, help her get organized. Look at the task of test preparation as a series of baby steps. Help her make a short list for a plan of attack, such as reread two chapters of the text Monday, study notes Tuesday and Wednesday, and cover vocabulary on Thursday. 5. Set expectations for homework. Parents can set firm rules at home, offer rewards, and make lists. (Do not put off making these rules!). The basic rule of “No TV until homework is done” is an obvious place to begin. Screen time and iPod privileges may be suspended or offered as rewards for successful time management. 6. Begin to accept mistakes. One of the best ways to foster this lesson is through modeling. Seeing parents acknowledge their own daily errors (and responding with humor and compassion for the missteps) will give your child permission. 7. Make lists. Make them for everything so there can be no excuses. Adolescents are especially prone to selective forgetfulness even when rules are clearly articulated. Notes are more effective than nagging for gentle reminders of chores, appointments, and expectations. ■ Michele Ranard, M.Ed. Michele Ranard is the queen mother of two princes of procrastination.

Life Skills

Authentic Civility

Deborah King, AICI CIP

C

ivility is not something you put on, like a new outfit, in order to impress another to achieve a particular goal. Pure civility must be authentic. Authentic civility springs from a heart that deeply values all people and recognizes that every action somehow affects others. This realization – as you live in a world where you are connected with others, whether you know them or not – requires that you carefully consider everything you say and do. Discover the Treasure Within Before you can treat others with care and consideration, you must give care and consideration to yourself. Recognize that within you resides a priceless treasure, and that treasure exists to be shared. This treasure is something you bring forth out of you, not something you try to get. The more you give, the more you receive. Frustration Signals Passion What frustrates you? What, you may ask, does my treasure have to do with frustration? Your frustration may actually be a signal revealing your passion. Not everyone is passionate about the same things as you. There are many things I hear about that I see as unfortunate or horrible, but I am not moved to frustration. When I do find myself being frustrated over and over by an issue, I know to ask myself What can I do to meet this need? When you find you are frustrated, take some time to think about how you could bring change in that area. Could you join a group, teach a class, write an article, or

develop a new service or product? Competition Evaporates Don’t be concerned with the competition. When you give birth to what is within you, there is no competition because there is only one “you”! Never settle for being a cheap imitation of someone else. Teachers, coaches, and trainers can provide importance guidance, but you have to learn to listen and evaluate every situation and discover how you can uniquely meet that need. Acts of incivility often escalate in highly competitive environments. It is vital that you know who you are and what your purpose is. Plod On, Plod On As a teen, I heard my pastor say that to be successful in anything in life, you must be like the old plow horse: Each day he plows the field – going back and forth, back and forth. It’s not exciting, but the constant, consistent action produces a great harvest. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and authentic civility does not become commonplace by a single act. Like the old plow horse, you must plod on, plod on, plod . . . to 5:00. ■

The Ten Commandments in Life 1. Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout. 2. Car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rear view Mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, Look Ahead and Move on. 3. Friendship is like a BOOK. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write. 4. All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either. 5. Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold! 6. Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smile from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end! 7. When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities. 8. A blind person asked St. Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!" 9. When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you. 10. WORRYING does not take away tomorrow's TROUBLES, it takes away today's PEACE.

30 Quick Cleaning Tips for a Tidier Home

I

By Amanda Formaro

n the battle to maintain a tidy home, especially with children, you are always on the look out for great tips. FamilyCorner.com asked readers to share what helps them most. Implement any or all of these ideas to make cleaning easier and more efficient!

Bathroom • Keep a container of disinfectant wipes under each bathroom sink. Each day, perhaps after your shower, use a wipe to clean off the sinks, counters and toilet bowl. This keeps the bathroom tidy all week. • Spray down the shower walls, tub, counters and toilet, let the cleaner sit while you empty trash cans and hang towels. Then go back and wipe everything down and clean the mirrors. • Use a dirty towel on the floor of the shower to keep your footing and avoid injury while you clean. • Keep a squeegee handy to clean the walls down after the shower. • Clean the toilet, sink & mirror while your kids are in the bath. This saves time as you need to be present while your kids bathe anyway. Just be sure to leave tasks that require strong chemicals (that may splash) for another time. • Designate a drawer, basket or container for hair brushes, scrunchies and barrettes. • Put hair dryers, curling irons and hair straighteners out of sight when you are finished using them. Kitchen • Use baking soda to clean the kitchen cabinets and counters. The stove and refrigerator will come out sparkling. Baking soda is a mild abrasive, so check for wear on “soft” paints and varnishes. • Do a quick mop or floor wipe-down daily, to make it easier to do your weekly mop. • If you use a dishwasher, load dishes as you use them. Don’t allow your sink to become full of dishes. • If you have pets, especially those that shed, use a hand held vacuum or sweeper to suck up animal hair before sweeping. Sweeping doesn’t collect animal hair; it simply moves it around. • Change your kitchen cleaning rag regularly. Be sure to rinse and wring it out well after each use and hang it to dry, to discourage bacterial growth and an awful smell. • Toss your dish cleaning sponge into the dishwasher on the top rack. Quickie Tips • Play “Beat the Clock” by setting a timer for 15 minutes. See how much you can accomplish in this amount of time. • When you clean for 10 or 15 minutes, as opposed to an hour or more, cleaning doesn’t seem overwhelming. Turn some music on and do this a few times a day so everything gets done. Choose CD’s instead of the radio to keep you on track. No commercial interruptions makes it easier to keep the beat while cleaning. • Keep a supply of cleaning products in each bathroom and in the kitchen. Store these in a bucket or basket with a handle, to make it easy to pick up and set down as you clean. 20

• When you are cleaning windows, if not using the streakfree squeegee, wipe up and down on the inside and back and forth on the outside. If there are any streaks you will be able to see which side needs to be redone. • Clean all rooms from top to bottom and left to right. This method makes it difficult to miss anything. • Keep a stock of small bags in the same room as the cat litter box. Whenever the box needs scooping the bags are right there. No need to go get one. • Keep a few extra trash bags in the bottom of your trash cans. When you pull out the full bag, a new bag will be waiting for you. • Save time and aggravation by connecting a long extension cord to your vacuum cleaner. You can vacuum your entire house (or one floor if you have multiple levels) without having to unplug it for each room. If the kitchen, for example, is the center of your house, use a kitchen outlet to reach all of your rooms. • Keep a supply of cotton swabs in your cleaning supplies. There is always some corner that your rag or sponge won’t reach, such as that “gunk” that gets around the edge of the bathroom sink. Cotton swabs are small enough to get that job done. • Do It Now! Put things back, rinse out that dirty dish, put shoes where they belong, and so on. When you think to yourself, “I’ll do that later” you may find yourself in a panic later when you are running behind and so many things are not done. • Throw a load of clothes into the washing machine before you start the coffee pot. Set a timer so you won’t forget to put them in the dryer. • Put in a load of laundry or run the dishwasher while cleaning other areas of the house. You will have accomplished more in a shorter period of time. Before Bed • Empty the sink, wash dirty dishes and wipe it all down. Getting up to dirty dishes is always unpleasant. • Before heading off to bed at night, check that the bathroom has towels hung and that toothbrushes are put away. Give the sink a quick wipe down. • Do a five-minute sweep of the living room. Grab a basket and pick up any stray toys, laundry, dishes and reading materials. Put them away, or at the very least, gather them all in a basket for tomorrow’s clean up. For more great tips and tricks visit FamilyCorner.com. ■
