Handing out candy on Halloween really freaked me out in a way. I didn’t realize it was no longer cool to say “trick or treat” or “thank you”. I finally took the no peanut sign down from my door because some kids were really rude about it. The boys were the worst, so many of them dressed SO scary. I was really disappointed by it all. I really don’t want my boys to turn out like that. I want them to be confident enough in themselves that they don’t need to be rude in order to feel “cool”.
How come parents let their little ones dress so scary? I had the freakiest masks at my door, some with glowing red eyes. There was a little one dressed as Death and one dressed as the Texas chainsaw massacre guy. There were devils and demons and various other scary things. It just seems awful to me. These are children people!! Children shouldn’t even know about the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That’s such a gross thing for me to think about. There’s nothing wrong with a child being innocent for goodness sakes!! The whole phase of being a child seems to get younger all of the time.
Perhaps next year if the kids are rude or don’t say Trick or Treat I just wont give them candy. I found myself yelling “thank you” out to the kids who didn’t say anything.
In one instance there were two scary older boys and a little boy. The little one said all the right things and said “goodbye” and “happy Halloween”. Is there like an age cut off where we stop trying with them? Or is it that there’s an age where they just stop caring themselves.
I dunnooo, just my observations. Just seems odd to me.
I’ve decided to carry on with this NAET treatments. The lady replied to my questioning email very thoroughly. I really believe western medicine isn’t the end all and be all. Yes it saves lives but it does also treat symptoms and not the problem as a whole. I like the idea of being treated for reason for the issue. I have IBS so the doctor said to take a laxative, no actually, eat whole grains and some yogurt, deal with stress a little better and it’s not an issue anymore. Doctors told me there was nothing I could do for my sciatica during pregnancy and I suffered, actually there’s something you can do and the chiropractor made it go away. My sister is allergic to like…planet earth and she also has some painful arthritis. Here have some painkillers and an antihistamine…actually no, she’s allergic to gluten, take it away and she feels 80% better. She eats gluten or sugar and whamo, she’s itchy. There’s a different approach to things than just western medicine can give you and it’s ok too, it’s just not what we’re used to.
So we’ll soldier on with this whole thing and see if it works out. There’s always good and bad information out there about each medical thing. Some people think that there are easy cures for cancer but the pharmaceutical companies hide it because it’s cheap and they wont make any money, some people think those people are quacks. The whole medical world seems rather relative to me. A study about heart burn will be done by someone employed by Tums, it can be totally biased.
Anyway, there, I ranted. I guess it’s not that bad seeing NO ONE READS ON FRIDAYS. Ha ha ha. No photos today…I didn’t take any this week.
