Unlike some well-talked about vitamins like Calcium or Vitamin C, Vitamin E is something not a lot of parents know or understand much about. However, it is a very powerful vitamin which acts as an antioxidant. Antioxidants help with protecting our cells from being damaged by free radicals, which may cause cancer and other unwanted diseases.
A body can store Vitamin E (it is fat-soluble), so an adequate dose must be taken, as too much of it can cause problems. It is suggested to look for natural sources of Vitamin E in food first, and if your doctor suggests supplementing your child's diet with Vitamin E, then there are supplements that can be taken.
There have been numerous researches done on the topic of friendships amongst kids and why it’s crucial for their development. The obvious one is that friendships help with developing children’s social and emotional skills, but what are other benefits of friendships among kids?
Friendships provide the platform for learning how to be sensitive to other people’s needs, how to participate in conversations and follow age-appropriate behaviour. When children surround themselves with friends, they acquire a support network to help deal with stressful situations. Having strong connections with others can help one feel supported during hardships that all of us face.
