Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop – The Power Of The Brain

I’m honored to be featured this week on Katherine’s Corner for her  Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop! It’s a great blog hop where you’ll find new blogs and make new friends! So come on and link up your post for lots of exposure!

The power of the brain! What an incredible creation, made by the Creator Himself. Did you ever think about the difference of a human being and an animal? Think of the differences visible at birth. While an animal is somewhat self sufficient in a matter of hours, and can fend for themselves, an infant takes years of parental nurturing until they can be on their own. Yet, the same infant that could not even feed itself at birth, and would have starved to death without his loving parents care around the clock, surpasses the animal by leaps and bounds, as the brain matures and grows. Watch the movements of an infant, watch as the baby learns new tricks, as his every move ingrains in his brain a new learning experience. Soon this infant starts to recognize people, and they become part of his memory. He experiments with crawling, and rolling over, and then remembers these new movements.

At times a child is born with limitations. A part of their brain isn’t as developed as his peers or siblings. Can anything be done to compensate? Can he lead a functional life? Interestingly, even when the brain is not fully functional there are tools with which to help. Physical therapy and exercises can create new pathways in the brain. This is called nueroplasticity. It is possible to learn new tricks. Many children with disabilities receive proper therapy sessions, with parents trying to supplement extra time at home.


When parents want their child to put forth extra effort they must remember a few key points:

-Extra work must be enjoyable. Try a new machine, one that is not too strenuous, and yet helped strengthen the necessary muscles.


-Make it fun, it should not feel like a chore.

-Remember that therapy is hard work for the child, and it can hurt. Be empathetic, understand the pain. Try active listening.

-Is there a friendly teen in the neighborhood who can pitch in? Sometimes a new face can make the situation more enjoyable, and the parent will have one less thing to fight about.

Keep it short, a drop shorter than your child can handle, so he will be willing to come back for more next time around.

Try the Strider Bike – a fun way to squeeze in extra time strengthening muscles, and its so enjoy able, all the neighbors will want to try it too!

Safe Exercise Ideas For Children

Children need to be entertained and they need to be entertained in a fun and exciting way. That is why the Redmon Fun & Fitness Exercise Equipment for kids is your best option. Your children will have loads of fun while at the same time, getting the extra benefits of a safe and healthy activity based recreation.


Redmon Fun & Fitness Happy Bike

When children start off young with an active lifestyle, it will inspire them to remain active throughout their life. Exercise is so important for a healthy lifestyle, it helps you feel energized and fit.

When doing exercise with children, be sure it is 100% safe for them. Additionally, there should be adult supervision at all times.


Redmon Fun & Fitness Air Walker

These great exercise pieces are easy for children to use, which will help your child feel competent and self-efficient when exercising. It’s also great for therapy; exercising helps build up muscles and strengthens children all over the body.


Redmon Fun & Fitness Weight Bench Set

Have your child start off slowly with the exercising and gradually, build it up to longer intervals. Exercising for the first time  for 1 hour or even a half an hour, can be too much for a child in the beginning.

Be sure to remind your child to drink while exercising. Drinking small amounts often rather than a larger amount at a time, is better and easier to handle.
