Children are naturally curious. They have an insatiable appetite for knowledge. Unfortunately, most parents today are not teaching their kids what they need to know to be healthy and happy adults. Bullying, drug use, teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and the ever-increasing violence in our society are but a few examples. And the long-term effects of all this can be devastating.


Most people are so caught up in their own lives they don’t even have time to find out what they don’t know. Once you learn about your own personal blind spots you will be able to easily spot them in others.

Most of us have blind spots that other people know about but we don’t know about them. It’s kind of like when a doctor tells you you have a tumor on your lung and need to remove it.


You say you’ll think about it and get back to him, but you forget. Weeks go by and you don’t think much about that tumor until one day you are out running and you feel a sharp pain in your side. You sit down and discover it is indeed a tumor and needs to be removed. What happened? How did you fail to act on the information given to you by the doctor? Probably something like this.


Childhood trauma has an impact on our health as adults, and we should be aware of this because it affects the quality of life we experience today. The brain is like a muscle. It can be strengthened by using it. When the brain is trained with new information and exercises, the connections between cells become stronger and more efficient. This allows us to learn and grow in a way that benefits our entire being.
