Labor Day weekend seems a lifetime ago, hope you are adjusting to the rhythm of school. Some news you may want to know about…
Why it’s important: it can be hard to know what is normal vs. not normal when it comes to your periods, and it’s good to know that not having a 28 day cycle is actually more common. This means most women will have periods that seem irregular, skip around a lot, or do any number of different patterns, yet another reason to track them!
Why it’s important: seems obvious, but yes you really do need to eat a balanced diet to stay healthy. In this case a 14-year-old suffered extreme health consequences after eating only junk food for 9 years. This may be an extreme case but let is also serve as a reminder that nutrition is important, so eat those veggies!
Why it’s important: we’ve unleashed so many ways to interact with technology and a virtual world in recent years without a lot of data about how it effects developing minds. This might take some of the guilt away for parents but serve as ammunition for tweens/teens!
