My child is afflicted with diabetes, so it’s important that he learns how to manage it while he is young. He’s also very interested in learning how to play the piano.
So I guess I could say that these two factors – managing diabetes and keeping my child interested in music – are two crucial things that I focus on with him. I’ll discuss diabetes later, such as the Diabetes Protocol program I’m excited about.
As far as music education goes, these are some of the things I’ve been doing to keep in interested and involved:
1. I Got Him A Piano Teacher
We have a piano in my home, and my child began to take an interest in it last year. Because I’ve been playing piano since I was a kid, I was thrilled to see that he was interested. To capture him now rather than later, I hired a piano teacher to come to our home twice a week.
So if you notice that your child has taken an interest in a musical instrument or the piano, capture that interest now. Enroll him in music classes or hire a tutor to come to your home. The investment is worth it.
2. I Take Him To The Symphony
One way to get your child interested in music is to take him or her to a place where music is key. One perfect place is the symphony. Many children do not appreciate the symphony because their parents either don’t go or don’t take them. By having my child participate in attending this sort of cultural event, he gains a greater appreciation of music, particularly Classical music.
The other thing that’s crucial to me is helping my child manage his diabetes. It was a shock to discover from our doctor that he has it, but instead of panicking and getting depressed, we chose to face it head on.
1. Help Your Child With Possible Cures
They say there’s no known cure for diabetes, but there have been programs, as seen in the Diabetes Protocol program.
Programs like these give me hope that my son’s condition can be reversed.
2. Manage Your Child’s Diet
There’s nothing worse for a child with diabetes to be eating an inadequate diet. It’s up to you as a parent to offer your child the best foods to combat his condition.
I don’t give my son lots of sugar and junk food. He eats vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat diary products, poultry and lean meats. I don’t feed him beans or fish, but that’s only because he doesn’t like them.
3. Keep Your Child’s Stress At Bay
Stress is a horrible thing for a diabetic. So I make sure to provide my son with a quiet and stable home.
With every child, there will be things about them that are most important to you. For me, it’s encouraging the musical abilities and interests that my son has, and helping him manage his diabetes. A good parent always focuses on what their children need.Read More
