Benefits of WII

Normally, I wouldn't blog about video games or systems, but I honestly found something different about Wii.

I don't know much about the Wii. I do know it is hard to get in some areas because of its great prices.

Let me tell you why, I like Wii. It all started on Sunday, March 16, 2008. We were invited to come over to my parents' home for brunch. We had heard about my brother buying the Wii Saturday. We went for brunch and to see the Wii.

I saw my brother relaxing on the couch when I asked him to hook up the Wii because my son would like to try it. (At the time I really meant my son).

He hooked it up, and it turned out that my spouse, son, brother and myself played bowling using the Wii as a motion. You literally had to "bowl". Depending how fast you "bowled", depending how fast the bowling ball hit the pins. There are even other sports you can play as well. There is tennis, golf, boxing, batting, bowling, and physical training.

This is a great item to get for families from the grandchildren to the grandparents. It is perfect for ages 3-over 100. Here you are spending time with each other. You are encouraging each other to achieve the goal of the support. There is even laughter involved as you observe the player's responses and reactions. You even begin to talk about those sports and can see how much your family may enjoy something you never realized.

Physically, Wii is a GREAT workout for all players because in some of the sports, you literally had to move the Wii control with force as if the hit or throw was literally real. Depending on how much you play with the Wii, you can become physically tired--as if you worked out. There is even a brief message on Wii to take a break before playing another game.

Don't Buy Cold Medicines for Young Children

Yesterday, I took my son to the doctor because he had his cough off and on for the past few weeks. It would get better, stop, and then resume again. The doctor checked him out, and said, "Your son has allergies because it is turning into spring. The snow is releasing mold and soon-pollen in the air."

I then told my son's pediatrician that I had given him a cold-cough medicine, but I had seen it on the shelves again at one of our stores, and asked the pharmacist about it, which she had said it was ok now to give to young children.

The doctor told me it is not ok. Pediatricians around the country have submitted about 800 studies and reports to the government showing that cough medicines do not benefit young children.

The pharmaceutical companies want to keep certain cold-cough medicines because it is profitable.

So my recommendation to Parents is this: Consult your child's doctor before going out and purchasing cold-cough medicines for your children. I would hate for you to lose your money with something that doesn't really help your children at all.
