1 of my goals for 2022 is to have monthly 121 date with each child. As my children moving to teens stage, it is important to provide and support them with their needs as their developed. They do not need much of physical needs but mental and emotional needs at this stage. Therefore quality time with them to hear them out their challenges and aspiration is 1 of the ways to see them grow healthily.
Today 1 of the interesting topics i had with Alyssa who is turning 14 years old in March 2023, was, she asked me this, "Why aint we allow to take milk? My friends just find me weird that we aint allow to drink milk."
Instead of the normal instinct of babbling away with sharing the facts to convince her, i decided to do things differently.
"Alyssa, you have a phone, I give you 5min. We can have a debate / discussion or engagement. You tell me if milk is good after your research."
After 5min, she listed a few facts, according to her research and i asked her, "is milk good?"
She listed the followings.
1. Milk and other dairy products are the top sources of artery-clogging saturated fat in the American diet. Milk products also contain cholesterol. Diets high in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol increase the risk of heart disease, which remains America's top killer.
