What Humble Kids Have in Common
By Maryam Abdullah, Greater Good Magazine (from March 12, 2019)

Kids today are growing up on social media, which—as much as it connects us to others in new ways—seems to offer an endless frenzy of opportunities for self-promotion and self-absorption. Learning a habit of humility can be a peaceful counterbalance to help our kids remain kind and grounded.

Are you looking for a safe, fun, and healthy environment for your child during the summer? We have a solution for you: The Extended Day SUMMER Childcare Program! When school is out for the summer and parents are at work, children need a safe place to participate in structured activities with their friends and supportive adults. The Extended Day SUMMER Childcare Program will be held in the Growney Assembly Center (G.A.C.) on the Manzano Day School campus.

The Extended Day SUMMER Childcare Program is for families who need quality childcare for their child when school is not in session. This childcare service provides a safe, supervised environment for children to play organized games and activities, do arts and crafts projects, meet new friends, and, most importantly, have fun! Children will be supervised by caring, supportive staff with experience working with children.

It appears to be a bad allergy season this year. Everyone is sneezing and has itchy, red eyes. Over 35 million people in the United States are affected by seasonal allergies. An allergy is an over-reaction of the immune system to plants, pollens, molds, dust mites, animal dander, feathers, fungus, and other allergens. The body thinks these normal substances are dangerous and causes an allergic reaction. Allergies are often genetic or may develop with continued exposure to certain allergens. Some people outgrow their allergies, and some allergies last a life time.

How can you determine if you have a cold or if it is allergies? Allergy symptoms typically last for more than two weeks and include a runny nose (clear, watery drainage), sneezing, itchy nose, eyes and/or ears, and a sore throat. With colds, the eyes do not itch and the mucous in your nose/throat is usually yellowish and thick.

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) recommend treating allergy symptoms as soon as they occur. Uncontrolled allergies put children at risk for sinus infection, ear infection, and poor concentration at school.

Here are a few tips to help manage allergies:

1.     If possible, avoid the allergen.
2.     Keep pets clean and out of bedrooms. Bathe pets once a week.
3.     Wash bed sheets at least once a week.
4.     Take a shower or bath before bedtime.  This minimizes allergens that you come in contact with during the day.
5.     Dust and vacuum house often to keep dust mites at a minimum.
