43 – More answers to listener questions, eating habits of kids, parenting

(duration 18:28)

In this show we offer further answers to questions by listeners, this time dealing with persuading others, particularly children, about healthy mind fit body lifestyle choices. Ultimately, it’s about respect and understanding, rather than battles of the wills or controlling others’ behavior, such as prohibiting consumption of “forbidden” foods, which at base denies personal responsibility. As we noted in the last episode, much of the time people’s eating decisions stem from how they were treated as children as well as their knowledge (or lack thereof) about food. So, parents need to adopt a healthy lifestyle that models good eating and provides rational guidance for kids, encouraging their own self-responsible choices.
