NO. It will mess with their hormonal development, they get injured easier also. Let them run for fun, and play games like normal kids. They do not need to be so competitive at such a young age. NO olympics either.
I think it is the parents being pushy and pushing their own dreams on their kids. A parent's job is to say no now and then when something is not good for their kids.
It would be nice to be able to stay home if one is really sick. It is not so simple though. I only called in for severe vomitting, diahrea [where you dare not leave the throne for more than a minute..>, which was about 1 x per year at my last job.
I worked in a nursing home. Most of us had to work sick, unless we were incapacitated with vomiting or such. It would not be quite that bad, but some girls called in sick just to goof off, then one of us had to come in on our days off to cover for a lazy person [or a person who was really sick>. That did not make for good feelings. The workload in nursing homes and hospitals is very heavy, & making them shorthanded is not good.
Even if people do not come in sick in nursing homes, there are still so many germs going around, that we get sick easily. That is despite "normal handwashing" and other precautions. Since they passed that HIPPA law, the nursing home I used to work at quit putting people on isolation for things such as MRSA, hepatitis, and many other deadly infections. Allegedly, it "invades their privacy" !!!! What about other people's rights to be protected from those same deadly infections ? Granted that the financial cost of putting a person on isolation is enormous, but the cost of not doing it is even more. It could cost employees, visitors, and relatives a life.
The elderly are not always alert enough or educated enough or well enough to practice good hygiene. Few if any of them understand sterile procedures, much less practice them. They do all kinds of unsanitary things. Then when people come to visit their loved ones --which they definitely should do-- children and other family members are exposed to those same deadly germs just by touching surfaces or breathing. People with a known deadly infection roam the halls freely, touching everything, and other people. It is heartbreaking, but they need love and hugs the same as all of us.
Ideally, it is a good idea to stay home when sick. In practicality, it just doesnt work so easily.View Thread
When my youngest was a few days old, I was sitting in the Pastor's Study at my church & nursing my son because he had a nice soft couch to sit on instead of a metal folding chair which is horribly uncomfortable for new mothers. I was minding my own business, and one of the men of my church came over to admire the new baby and thought he was napping. Ha. He was quite embarrassed and apologetic when he realized my baby was eating and not sleeping... It didnt bother me one bit.
Women parade in bikinis and thongs in public and on beaches, and no one seems to mind too much. People take their kids to the beach and they all get a face full of nearly naked people and more... But let a woman breastfeed in public and it is considered "terrible" or worse... I think their priorities or whatever are all backwards.
I find it odd that a society that thinks it is okay for homosexuals to go at it hot and heavy in public [I have seen it many times>, but frown on mother's breastfeeding has some serious moral problems.
I have done it in public, and no one was the wiser. It can be discreetly and no one need know, or at least see anything "offensive". I have done it in church, in restaurants and other public places when my children were infants and everyone thought my babies were napping peacefully in my arms, which they frequently did.
It has nothing whatsoever to do with a stripper's performance. It is not sexual or vulgar, but the most natural thing on earth.
Some women expose themselves needlessly to do it, but that is not necessary. In some societies that is perfectly fine, but apparently here in the US it is not.
You can always use a light blanket to cover yourself when doing it with a younger baby. Older babies will pull it off and play peek-a-boo with mommy sometimes.
I think that Georgia pastor is ill-informed at best for tossing out a Mother feeding her infant. Wonder what he would have done with Mary the Mother of Jesus feeding him as in infant ???
A friend of mine long ago, didnt nurse her child for fear of having to do it in public. That was partly her husband's doing. I sat next to them many times in church, with him on the other side of my coat. He never knew it until one day the subject came up. I told him that I nursed my son right next to him every week in church. He was flabbergasted, said he never knew. Perhaps he let his wife nurse their next child. Personally, I think it is the Mother's choice, not the father's.
I do not think it is right at all. A patient has a right to refuse any oor all treatments from their doctors. For instance, chemotherapy for cancer. A patient might have a lot of personal reasons not to accept chemo. But the doctor can RX meds to keep a terminal patient comfortable. It should not be forced on unwilling patients.
My late husband died of cancer. When it was diagnosed, his team of doctors told him IN FRONT OF ME that he could take chemo or not, it wouldnt make much difference. They insisted that he had a right to change his mind any time and take it or not. Well, when it had advanced and he needed strong pain meds, THEN THE DOCS INSISTED THAT HE COME TO THE HOSPITAL AND TAKE BOTH CHEMO AND RADIATION OR THEY WOULD NOT GIVE HIM ANY PAIN MEDS. That was a 3 hour drive each way. Then when I told our personal doctor about what they told us, THEY LIED to him and claimed they did not say any such thing. I am the one who talked to them on the phone, and that is what they told me. Our local doc could not RX him any pain meds because of a stupid inspector that suspended his license over some piddly dumb thing, so we had to sit in the ER for nearly 6 hours to get him pain meds. The ER docs & nurses were sitting on their rear ends eating and drinking coffee for over 4 of those hours, and doing nothing. There was a long line of patients waiting ahead of us who said they had been doing that the whole shift. The ONLY pain meds they gave him was Ibuprofen 800 mgs 3 x daily. Period. Their excuse was they did not want him to get "addicted" to pain meds. The cancer had spread into his vital organs and bones, and that was all they did. Well, there is a lot more, none of it any better. But a patient does have rights.
Sure, doctors would like more children to be vaccinated. However, there are many reasons that people do not want that. In Africa, the Bill and whats-her-name Gates foundation vaccinates children at GUNPOINT.
It wont work. Look at all the candy factories and what-not with people loosing their jobs, etc...
I once read in Reader's Digest years ago --prob back in the 80s-- that daylight savings time was invented for candy factories to make more money at Halloween. I guess there were other supporters.
At any rate, it appears any idiot can get hired at those useless think tanks.
I have diabetes, but I still would not support such a stupid law. If I do not have the good sense to limit my intake of not such healthy foods, it is my fault, not someone else's and I do not need the govt telling me what to do.
