Brotherly (and sisterly) love
Up until a month ago, there was so much continual conflict between Kristina and Kelton that our whole family was stressed out. Kristina would deliberately provoke Kelton; Kelton would yell. The cycle continued in spite of everything we did.
A month ago, we started giving them nutritional shakes. By giving them that much nutrition, their brains started working a LOT better, and they became happier. As they changed, their whole relationship changed. They started to enjoy being around each other instead of continually antagonizing each other.
Today, Kristina tried to make a hat. She wanted to dress up as "some random guy." Kelton helped her!!!!!!! Nobody asked him to--he just helped her!!! He even made her a mustache and a beard to go with the hat.
A month ago, they fought every time they inhabited the same room (or car) at the same time. Now, they rarely argue. About 2 months ago Kelton told me that there was no way he and Kristina could ever learn to get along. He believed the situation was hopeless. God is awesome. He provides people to give us the information we need, exactly when we need it most.
I am so thankful to my friend who told me about these nutritional shakes. I can't believe how much they have changed me and my whole family. I love the resonance of peaceful playing, creating, and imagining that have replaced the sounds of strife. If your kids (or you ) need these shakes, let me know. I can help you order them.
