Oh darn it, Yeah Good job!

Sports fans;

Mind your manners, it matters.

Its not all about winning or losing; its how you play the game.

In a household with 6 kids we have been to countless sporting events. We would like to remind our fellow sports fans that it is very easy to get carried away and that excited fans can get frustrated in a split second. Please be mindful and remember how we act at a sporting event also reflects our character in daily life. Be the encouraging fan and not the bully. Things go sideways and how we respond in respectful ways is key. Everyone around us sees our behavior, especially the young fans and players. Don’t be the “Bleacher Bully” the players do hear you and although you walk away, that player hears your voice for a long time.

Be a role model for encouragement and compassion. Don’t get arrogant with a good play or hostile for a bad one. Have fun and remember there is always a next time in sports.

Have the Talk

It’s that time of year again. Have you had the talk yet. The one about the choking game? Have that talk again, have it often.

New students come into the school districts all the time. Our children become friends with them or it may be your child going into a new school. Have the talk.

New homeroom assignment with a new group of classmates, and this environment youth are excited to tell others about their summer. A new year brings new things shared between school friends, new things to try, new things to experiment with and bragging rights are part of the conversation. Your child needs the the right information and you are the one to tell them. Have the talk and prepare your child for this conversation with the complete information to keep them and their friends safe.

Your childs peers share what they did and where the went, they may also share things that are considered risky behavior, one being the choking game aka pass out challenge or fainting game.

The ones who have tried it will tell their friends; “Hey there is this new thing I learned this summer a friend showed me. It’s not drugs or alcohol, it’s what good kids do to get that high feeling, No It won’t hurt, look at me. And HEY If it was bad dont you think that our parents would have told us not to, it’s just adrenaline rush. YOU GOT TO TRY IT, TRUST ME!”

This is why we as parents and Caregivers must have the talk. The youth that we parents think sould know better and would never do something that may harm them don’t have the correct information. We don’t know what they are telling our children. Where did their information come from.

Each new year brings new stories and new dangers for us to protect our children from because we do not akways know the other families. This is a your opportune time to share this information with the parents in your childs life. These parents are your new allies and friends! Have the talk with them. Take action and Share this post on your social media feed for them and others to see you will be opening the door to education for someone and never know it. You will save lives.

We are our childs first teacher, empower them with the truth to know better and do better.

God Bless you all,

#WildfarmKidsMama

“Dear Gracious and Heavenly Father, I am praying for safe school environments for all of the children, God protect them when we are apart, protect them from what we do not know. Protect the teachers and staff in our schools from the dangers in this world each day. Guide them and give them strength and courage as they watch over the blessings you gave us, our children. In the name of Your Son Jesus, AMEN”

Know the Facts

Parents and caregivers,
It has come to our attention that there is a spike in youth making videos for Snapchat and Instagram involving the choking game. Different areas have their own name for the activity but all are potentially deadly. There is brain damage from the first time tried.

Please monitor your childs social media accounts. Educate your children to also be on the lookout for friends that may post videos and please contact their parents.

This was not invented recently, it has been around for generations and generations going back to beginning of time. The new part is the sharing on social media in the last decade.

This game KILLS kids!

We believe that if a parent or caregiver has the information to teach their child that this is not something to try no matter if their friends are doing it; it is potentially deadly. But because parents don’t know about it themselves, it continues.

The choke hold is in almost every action movie and many cartoons. Kids roleplay and mimic what they see. They discover the adrenaline rush and no one is explaining its killing their brain cells. Chasing that “high” becomes something done alone and youth think that because no one says not to then it must not be a bad thing because it’s all over the media. Now the push for likes and shares are driving these youth to show friends on social media.
We must get the information out to parents and even schools. We must take action.

We encourage everyone to have the conversation with your youth. Give them the facts. Don’t leave it up to their friends to be the first ones to share this. It is deadly, its often called the good kids high.

Thank you for taking time to visit our website.

God Bless you all,
