Have you ever heard someone say, ‘kids are so resilient’? I know that I have, and I truly believe that it’s true. Kids are resilient, they take what comes their way and carry on, but should they be?
To me that is the follow up to kids are so resilient, but should they be? It’s estimated that 41.4 million adults utilized mental health therapy in the year 2020. That number has continued to rise each year.
Therapy in and of itself isn’t a bad thing, and quite possibly everyone can benefit from therapy in some manner. But, what if piling more onto our kids is actually the catalyst for unwell adults?
A healthy adult starts with healthy kids. We don’t need to test how resilient they are, that is their nature. We are adaptable by design. An overwhelmed system will always resort to warning signals getting your attention through the form of symptoms.
Nurturing and supporting our growing children instead of suppressing symptoms will go a long way to raising healthy well adjusted adults. Chiropractic care is one way (the BEST way in my opinion) to support a growing and developing nervous system.
