#PinkShirtDay

Health Tips presented by Tellier Guardian Pharmacy: February 16th, 2017

Wear pink on February 22nd to show your support to end bullying and promote healthy relationships.

Bullying is a problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and on the internet. The pain of being picked on, excluded, shamed, assaulted, or gossiped about – is unacceptable.  Everyone is encouraged to wear pink to demonstrate support against bullying.

It is so important that victims of bullying know they are not alone and there is help and support available. Wearing a pink shirt on this day sends a strong message to them that others care. Often, the simple act of wearing a shirt can start conversations – conversations can be a big step towards healing and helping!   Bullies come in all shapes and sizes and ages. Anyone can be a bully – even you. Kids usually become bullies because they are unhappy inside for some reason or don’t know how to get along with other kids.

Fact: Bullying happens to someone in Canada every 7 minutes on the playground.

Fact: Other kids are watching 85% of the time when one kid bullies another kid. Adults like teachers or parents hardly ever see a bully being mean to someone else.

Unfrazzled Families: running a functional household

Homework hassles, schedule snafus, beastly bedrooms and bedtime battles…why does it seem like you spend every day reacting to your family’s latest natural disaster?

You’ve always known kids can be a challenge, but nothing could’ve prepared you for the landslide of missing shoes, dirty dishes and bungled carpool schedules you face daily — and that’s even before you’ve finished your first cup of coffee.  It seems that raising a family goes hand-in-hand with running ragged as you cross town to make it to sports practices, scouting meetings and music lessons; keep up with school projects; and somehow find time to fix dinner. So how do you hang on to your sanity — not to mention empty the dishwasher, get your kids to bed on time, and all the rest?

Instead of getting frustrated, get savvy, with these strategies that will not only help the household run more smoothly now, but also prepare kids to live a less frazzled life when they’re out on their own.

Unfrazzle yourself. As child and adolescent psychologist Dr. Jennifer Hartstein says, frazzled moms make for frazzled households. It’s impossible to juggle everything, and especially when you’re not at your best. Carve out some time to do what you love—read a book, connect with friends, or take a daily run. The better you take care of yourself, emotionally and physically, the better able you’ll be able to take care of others.
