🚨 Stop giving smartphones to your kids! 🚨

A friend shared Sapien Labs' report that highlights a deeply concerning correlation between early access to smartphones (& tablets) to young children and the increased likelihood of suffering from mental disorders as adults. (1/5) Image
The numbers are truly shocking:

(a) ~60-70% of women who were exposed to smartphones before the age of 10 experience mental health issues as adults

(b) ~45-50% of men who got exposed to smartphones before the age of 10 also face similar challenges later in life. (2/5)
I urge parents to resist the temptation of handing over a phone to kids always - while crying, or eating food etc.

Instead, encourage real-world interactions, outdoor activities & hobbies.

As parents, we have a responsibility to protect our children's mental health. (3/5)

I don't usually talk about pediatrics. But I know some of you are trying to learn all the ways a loved one (and therefore yourself) can feel better. 🧵 #parents (1/22)
So let's take a look at the increases in adaptive behavior these kiddos experienced using a ketogenic diet for epilepsy! (2/22)
This study looked at seizure control in a pediatric population using the ketogenic diet. No surprise, the outcome was great. We already know it is super helpful for pediatric epilepsy. What I want to post about is the adaptive behavioral assessment outcomes! (3/22)

Mental Health Statistics on US Children

1 in 6 U.S. children aged 2–8 years (17.4%) had a diagnosed mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder.

So young. Look at the increase over age bracket.

Reminds me of an incident with my daughter when she was 4 and had observed… Image
a group of (Muslim) teenagers. She was perplexed by their behavior and asked me one of the most insightful questions I’ve been asked by anyone, including adults.

“Mama, aren’t people supposed to get better when they’re older?”

I smiled, took her into my arms and said…
“Yes. They are.”

Entirety satisfied, she cheerfully jumped off my lap and went to play, and I just stood there, amazed by her intellect and simultaneously frightened because I knew that children, most of them, even Muslims, were not “getting better when they’re older”…

Oh look! A new lawsuit has been filed in NJ by a librarian against #parents who spoke up at a school board meeting.

Egregious 1A violation. Let's review the public records. A thread🧵.
Atty @tonycaivano1964, hubs of radical librarian @roxanacaivano, actually filed a lawsuit for defamation against #parents who exercised their 1A rights to petition their #localgov and criticize the very #govtjobs employee whose salary they they pay.

So, Librarian Roxana Caivano @roxanacaivano flexes here with Just How Important She Is. Based on her white privilege?

It seems that, for a number of years, the LA has been at the forefront of an initiative to find: "Cost-effective models for delivering behaviour analysis teaching in UK schools and local authorities"
Integrating ABA into #maintained & #academy, #mainstream & #SpecialSchool for "affordable" "positive outcomes". It concludes, "School-based models, such as Leicestershire's, provide a sustainable model which can be used with a large number of children for...little extra cost."

The bills on #Education are being analyzed by the Bucharest Government, in order to establish the final form that will be submitted for #Parliament approval. The debates in Parliament, however, are very likely to get heated. (1/4)
The Government believes that the new laws will help reduce #school #dropout, improve the country's #education system and help young people adapt to the labour market requirements. (2/4)
The opposition has criticised the amendments announced by the line minister @ligiadeca, describing the bills as faulty, superficially made and prone to creating imbalances. The bills have been criticized by #students, #teachers and #parents. (3/4)

Really @VaSenateDems? By your standards, my 2 chemistry PhDs, PostDocs, 15 years at univerities teaching graduate level courses, +1 yr teaching engineering chem at @ReynoldsCollege & developing graduate STEM Ed programs & 20 yrs in Fortune 500 cos would be unqualified as well.

#SEL is an even worse evil that must be rooted out @GovernorVA @cToddGilbert @RichAndersonRPV This is where all the LGBTQ & Woke indoctrination merges in Maoist "reeducation" of students to correct thinking. Progress in reeducation is measured by testing, data mining & scoring.
2. Children are assigned a social score. Their #parents are also sent questionaires & are evaluated, assigned a social score. This is the data mining & profiling that XanTanner's, Garland's son in law, data mining & profiling company is being paid $2Million+ by VA, NJ, NY to do.
@GovernorVA this is Orwellian. Once you've fully assimilated how pervasive & insidious this is, it needs to be part of the 2023 VA general election,@RichAndersonRPV because almost everyone of these NoVA Dems & ExtremeLibDems drank this KoolAid, except those who work for a living.

A thread from Aldo describing his analysis of a particular YouTube channel is below.

This idea of agency/consent for children has local ramifications this week in North Kingstown, #RhodeIsland and proposed Sex Ed curricula.

A 🧵:
2/ NK is the home of the Aaron Thomas "Naked Fat Test" scandal. (A coach allegedly was performing fat tests on athletes while they were nude, without true/informed parental consent.)

Now, enter new Sex Ed curricula revision discussion.
3/ It's important to remember that SIECUS et al. gives insight into "why" Sex Ed should be changed, the National Sex Ed Standards is the "what" to be taught, and curriculum is the "how" schools administer, and whether it starts in grade K or Grade 6 is merely the "when". So....

@CBS6 Sorry @VASchools had unqualified SecEds for 8 years, appointed for political reasons, not qualifications, & the depths of Northam's blackface humiliation. The extremist agenda has been rebuked by @NSBAPublicEd after legal review, but damage done. @8NEWS #RVA @NBC12 @myVPM

It's hard to express the emotions and happiness that she is feeling. Imagine the lady that has spent her whole life in the village and did not even see the aeroplane from a close angle.
Yes, she became the first one from her generation to travel abroad and the second lady from my village (Of course first one is my wife). This is a pretty special moment for my family and me!

The only thing that hurts me is that I wish my dad was around to experience this!

On Discipline Without Anger

Several #parents have reached out requesting advice on this. I find this question a little strange, because much of parenting has to do with basic ethics. As adults, we don’t obey those whom we don’t respect. Children aren’t any different…
Without respect, even love isn’t an effective deterrent to negative behavior. So, the real question is — how do parents build respect in the relationship with their children.

First, for child too young to even understand respect, that is a special stage with different rules.
However, for children with enough cognitive and emotional development to recognize when and how respect is to be shown, then fostering it isn’t much different than the adult process.

The following are 10 ways that I’ve fostered respect and positive discipline with my children.

“I wish I had a mother like yours.”

Fourth grade was one of the years my daughter attended school. Everyday, when I dropped her off, I’d kiss her forehead, hug her, say I love you, then leave with a smile & salam. Her classmate, who had observed this, said the above to her.
My daughter was reminded of the great blessing she has, but it was sad to hear this from another child. On another occasion, after receiving a low grade, the girl asked her if I’d get angry at it. My daughter, who thought the question strange, asked why. The girl said that her…
…parents get angry with her when she doesn’t get an A. This is unknown in our family. Healthy children want to do well. I’ve taughy my children that there are only two possibilities, either she did your best and needs to work on her weakness (which I always offer to help with)

If a #parent of an #SEN child (esp autistic) presents as #anxious, high maintenance, needy, rude, full on or any of the other awful terminology used to describe them, what do you think might be *really* going on. Let’s unpack it 🧵

#Teachers #SENCO #Inclusion leads #SENtwitter
This is not a new topic. Parents have been talking about the difficulties of being labelled as overly anxious for many years.
So why does this keep happening?
2/🧵 #Teachers #SENCO #Inclusion leads #SENtwitter
Professionals don’t want to feel helpless. Difficult situations and lack of resources cause feelings of helplessness all around and it is easier to blame the most vulnerable and easy target. The anxious parent. 3/🧵

Someone asked if I teach my kids Ash’ari/Maturidi creed.

1 Difference between these two creedal schools is on minute matters, not for public (or child) discussion

2 I’ve studied both, memorized didactic poems for both. In the مسائل خلافية I most often lean toward Maturidi.
3 That being said, however, while I have more ‘aqli resonance with the Maturidi Imams, I often feel more rawhani resonance with the Ash’ari Imam

They were all geniuses. Allah’s mercy be upon them all.

اللهم صلّ وسلّم وبارك على سيدنا محمد وآله
The point for #parents was that children’s initial faith impressions aren’t built on rationality, but on spiritual attitudes imparted through parental behavior.

Ex. my positive reaction to my children’s apologies would reinforce that God loves to accept His servant’s repentance
