comment Should I let my 5 year old watch the news?
This could also lend itself to screening the news for content prior to letting the kids watch it. It would be more work, but it could help parents to prepare for potential questions or discussions.

Still, make sure that his filtering abilities are properly orchestrated.

comment How do you ensure proper nutrition for a child in a vegetarian or vegan household?
I had problems getting nutrients early on due to not understanding the specific benefits of certain foods. This path has caused me to give greater consideration to what I consume... still learning. I'm just now coming to the point of studying vitamin occurrences. I've had a liquid B-Complex, in raisin juice, that seemed to work well (though it didn't taste great).

The end of this month will mark 3 years for me.

I try to avoid supplements that are animal-sourced. My health reports come back fine outside of stating that I could use a bit of exercise. I'm also of the mindset that pregnancy increases the drive toward certain nutrients. However, one of my omnivorous friends did her entire pregnancy as a vegetarian; that seemed opposite to everything I'd heard up until that point. Her son is now one of the most active and alert 5 year olds that I've met.

Good eye, I'm vegetarian.
