Times have changed. Children these days have a hard time adjusting to a world that is far from simple. What if we joined forces to help our chicks find their place without losing too many feathers?

It is difficult not to worry about the marked difference in the behaviour and performance of new generations of schoolchildren, especially in large cities. This does not necessarily mean that the children of the new millennium are less gifted.

There is no doubt, however, that our toddlers live in an environment that has nothing to do with our childhood, especially when you consider the endless stream of stimuli with which they are bombarded today.

Behavioural problems also manifest themselves at home. An increasing number of cases of anxiety, aggression and opposition to any form of discipline is observed among preschool children. According to a study conducted by the Hamburg University Hospital among 2,000 6-year-old children, more than 55% of subjects (who had just started school) suffered from nervous disorders, one in five had little appetite, and one in five also had trouble sleeping or pathological habits such as biting their nails, pulling their hair or being unable to sit still (motor restlessness). It is easy to understand that parents and teachers feel helpless and helpless in the face of this kind of problem.

Many children are diagnosed with an "inability to concentrate" when they are simply exhibiting normal behaviour at their age. All children, at any stage of their development, will dream or speak beyond reason. When a child:

  • Doesn't seem to be listening,
  • seems to have his mind elsewhere,
  • constantly waving his hands or feet,
  • interrupts others or intervenes,
  • seems sleepy,drowsy or restless while learning,
  • gets up from his place in class

We should not automatically conclude that he needs medication to correct his behaviour.

Supervised by a loving parent or teacher, a child will react extraordinarily. Children love to receive and give attention. On the other hand, it is also true that many children are fuelled by processed products, sweets and soft drinks. They are simply not being provided with the right foods for their brain to develop properly. However, the latter is one of the most voracious organs, as Swiss naturopath Alfred Vogel explains:

The brain uses up to 80% of the nutrients consumed daily, which leaves very little for the rest of the body to fend for! The brain needs oxygen, glucose and water to function normally. A person who is dehydrated or who does not eat their meals regularly will see their ability to concentrate and remember impaired, and will not want to learn new things.

It is therefore easy to understand that a poor diet can have negative repercussions of all kinds - poor memory, reduced attention span, depression, lack of energy, insomnia, irritability, hyperactivity, anxiety, etc.

The brain is a collection of nervous tissues that form the control and coordination center of the nervous system. A child's ability to cope with new situations depends exclusively on the proper functioning of his brain. Children need a balanced diet consisting of protein, unrefined grains, vegetables and fruits. Fresh nuts and seeds also play an important role since the fatty acids they contain help regulate neurotransmitters, the body's internal messaging system.

What is often seen in children is the disjointed communication between the brain and the hands, feet, eyes, ears and tongue. Inconsistent talk, strange thoughts and words, and an inability to complete tasks or take in requests are all clues that the brain and its messengers need help.
