That seizure soon led to the discovery of a five centimeter brain tumor called an Anaplastic Glioma Grade III at Flowers Hospital in Dothan.Three days later, Crutchfield would go under the knife and have the majority of the tumor removed.

** A2 Wednesday, September 26, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserTom Urban and Jim TurnerNews Service FloridaTALLAHASSEE Laws will take effect next week that will add benefits for first responders who suffer post-traumatic stress disorder and impose harsher penalties on people who abuse ani-mals, along with 19 other measures signed by Gov. Rick Scott after the 2018 legislative session.The laws taking effect Oct. 1 range from allow-ing credit cards to be used for background checks when firearms are purchased to doling out tougher punishment for people who steal bee colonies or trespass at airports.Most laws crafted during the legislative ses-sion, including the states $88.7 billion budget, hit the books on July 1. But others had later effec-tiveŽ dates.The change for first responders (SB 376) would expand workers compensation insurance benefits for firefighters, police officers, paramedics and emergency-medical technicians who suffer from PTSD.The office of state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis, who has started running a campaign ad that highlights his support for the law, announced last week the launch of training mate-rials for first responders on PTSD.Weve heard terrible stories about the impact tragedies like Pulse, Parkland and most recently Jacksonville Landing, have on our first responders and their families,Ž Patronis, whose job includes serv-ing as state fire marshal, said in a statement. The training is an important step needed to help our first responders.ŽAccording to a 2015 article published in the Journal of Emergency Medical Services, 6.6 percent of 4,000 first responders surveyed had attempted suicide, which is more than 10 times the rate in the general population.Under the new law, first responders who have witnessed the death of a minor or witnessed a death that involved grievous bodily harm of a nature that shocks the conscienceŽ can file workers compensation claims for lost wages.The new law is expected to increase workers compensation costs for cities and counties that employ first responders by upward of $7 million, according to the National Council on Compensa-tion Insurance.Another new law (SB 1576) taking effect next week stems from the beating death last year of a 9-month-old Labrador retriever puppy in Volu-sia County.The new law, named Ponces LawŽ after the puppy, will allows judges to bar people convicted of animal cruelty from owning pets. The legislation also increases the severity ranking of animal-abuse related crimes, making it more likely that offenders would go to jail upon conviction.Kate MacFall with the Humane Society of the United States hopes the new law will allow judges to make sure people who mistreat animals are not allowed to repeat the cycle of abuse.It gives that judge discretion to say they cant have any contact with animals during their probation,Ž MacFall said. It clarifies that and gives the judge the authority to have that as part of the sentencing, so that the criminal cannot have contact with animals during their probation.ŽIn addition to dealing with animal cruelty, the new law also creates policies and procedures for animal shelters to use following natural disasters, such as hurricanes, to return lost pets to their owners.It puts more teeth into it. It stiffens the penalty for people who abuse animals,Ž MacFall said. Who wouldnt support that? This all came from a dog named Ponce, that was beaten to death last year. It was a horrific tragedy.ŽOther new laws going into place on Oct. 1:--HB 55, allows people buying guns to use credit cards to pay for background checks. They have been required in the past to pay with personal checks, money orders or cashiers checks.--HB 135, allows deaf people to voluntarily identify themselves as hearing-impaired when they register vehicles. The idea, which came from a Tallahassee police officer whose son is deaf, is intended to prevent communications issues with deaf drivers that could inadvertently lead to confrontations.Laws on PTSD bene ts, animal abuse set to take e ectIn a story that ran on A1 in the Sept. 19 edition headlined 'BOCC talks roads, trash, budgets', incorrectly stated the amount of funding from FEMA. It is $16,316,444.33. SETTING IT STRAIGHT His band mate and cousin Braeden Cooper, knew immediately that he and fellow band mates would do everything they could to help their friend. A benefit concert was set up for September 22 at Northside Assembly of God where Sake of One would play alongside duo Gary and Chrissy and solo artist Taylor Maples. All proceeds from the concert would go to Crutchfield to help pay for his medical expenses.With a standing room only crowd, $5,100 was raised, neither amount people and funds was what the band was expecting according to Cooper."When we got to the church to set up we put out 80 chairs," said Cooper. "Twenty minutes after the doors opened we wound up putting out every chair the church had. We thought we would raise maybe $500 or so, so this amount raised blows our minds. We are so grateful for it."Bawcom says Crutchfield has taken the process like a superhero."He has honestly taken everything like a super-hero," said Bawcom. "The radiation took a toll on him for a little bit. He was really tired and achy for a while but has bounced back awesomely."Crutchfield continued on as normally as possible working every day throughout the times he was receiving radiation .Cooper says they are trusting Gods plan because we know every-thing is going to be alright."We trust that this is Gods plan for Justin," said Cooper. "I believe he is giving a story to tell, his living testimony. I just know that everything is going to be alright."Bawcom says she is thankful for the loving community they are sur-rounded by."I would just like to say thank you so much to everyone who has kept us in their thoughts and prayers," said Bawcom. "Those mean more to us than anything. Justin is so incredible and has made it through this troubling time like a champ. He's kept in good spirits and constantly is cracking jokes and goofing off like he always has. I love the fact that we live in such a loving community that comes together in someone's time of need and I can't say thank you enough. His family and I are so blessed to have such loving folks around us."Crutchfield says he is thankful and blessed. "I am just so blessed to still be here and thank-ful for all the prayers and love I have received," said Crutchfield. "Although the worst is over, I just ask for continued prayers."

All Rights Reserved. imes A dvertiser HOLMES COUNTY T PUBLISHER Nicole P. Bare“ eld INTERIM EDITOR Jacqueline Bostick PRODUCTION SUPERVISOR Cameron Everett Bert and Ernie are not gay. That I even have to say this is the problem, not the actual fact that they aren't. This week, long-time Sesame Street writer Mark Saltzman revealed that he wrote Bert and Ernie's relationship as that of "a loving couple" and based it on his own relationship with film editor Arnold Glassman. Soon after, Sesame Workshop took to Twitter with a denial not just of Bert and Ernie's romantic relationship but of the very concept of sexual orientation for puppets. I'm with them. It always seemed evident to me that Bert and Ernie were not gay because of the way they dressed. Clearly, neither of them would have fit in on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. (Though Kermit might be the Muppet most likely to be the target of a questionable #MeToo accusation from you-know-who.) Have I offended you with the non-PC references yet? Christine, how dare you suggest that gay men must be well-dressed? And that not-so-veiled reference to Miss Piggy and the possibility that she'd lie? How dare you! Puppets must be believed! I'm obviously joking. Frankly, I find it easier to laugh about the topic than to take it seriously. Of course, Bert and Ernie aren't gay.They're just sweet, nebbish little animated socks who had to split the rent on a fourth-floor walk-up. But these days, we need to worry about the backstories and implications of everything, from Supreme Court nominees to animated socks. There is no question that Sesame Street has been on the cutting edge of diversity and inclusivity since the beginning. Over the years, the show included characters that reflect different demographics, such as Julia the autistic Muppet, and Muppets who had accents (other than the Count because there isn't a huge lobby for Transylvanians in the U.S.) and Muppets whose parents were divorced. From the beginning, the human characters, such as Maria and Gordon and Mr. Hooper, were of different ethnicities, and some of the vignettes were in Spanish, which was very exotic for 1969, when the show started. Teaching kids from an early age that everything and everyone has value is, unquestionably, one of the most positive lessons Sesame Street can impart on its viewers. But Sesame Street is not and should not be -in the business of helping kids explore their sexuality. It's always been a show geared to the youngest of the young, the toddler set who were too tiny to really understand sex at all. No 3or 4or 5-year-old should have to deal with a topic that will cause them decades of angst later in life. Children shouldn't be forced to acknowledge their sexuality as toddlers. That's not a burden that should be placed on their young shoulders. I call it "burden" not because we should have a negative view of different forms of sexuality, but because children should not have to think about those concepts while trying to figure out what number comes after "7" or what letter comes after "K."Bert and Ernie Supposed to Teach ABCs, not LGBTQ Christine FlowersAlthough I am not physically able to be much help, I managed to show up for the volunteer Day of Service last Saturday along with more than 200 others. I didnt learn the names of most of those who helped with planting the downtown flower pots which was the area I was in, but Cheryl Harris and her group of girls worked along side of me. Beauty queens Melea Kirk Miss Heritage and the Junior Heritage queen and there mother worked with us also.I am indebted to Tammy Riley and Simona Mayo for their tireless efforts. The ladies from Wells Fargo worked tirelessly getting the pots planted as well as reworking the planters at the former Western Auto store.While I had to give it up about 10:00 A.M. they all stayed for the second session and painted flower pots and I dont know what all else.I am hoping that watering the plants didnt come too late and that they will live. We are indebted to Lowes of DeFuniak Springs for their donation of all the plants, potting soil and water retention crystals. In addition, Bowen donated Miracle Grow to fill the pot in front of their store which I forgot to plant. Susan Pittman and Sheri Brooks are taking care of that pot and another one up the street with potting soil donated by Debbie Mills at super Dollar and mums purchased there by Bonifay Garden Club. Thank you to Pam and her staff at Main Street hair salon The pot located by her shop contains the vinca plants the Garden Club planted there at least three years ago. They have kept them blooming so no work was needed on those plants. That was the hope of the city, I am sure, when the pots were purchased that the businesses located near the pots would keep them tended,The cowboy artist was at work and made the biggest impact for bringing rodeo spirit to town with the window painting. More painting is planned for downtown before rodeo.And speaking of Bonifay Garden Club, I want to put in a plug. We havent reorganized yet for next year. We desperately need new life.I realize that most young women work and dont have time for a lot of outside activities, but we can work out a meeting schedule to accommodate your hours. You dont need a green thumb or even like to dig in the dirt. There are other areas of interest besides plants. We promote protecting the environment and wildlife habitat, preserving water quality, preserving our history, beautifying our homes and our city including the Bonifay Cemetery, Keeping the grounds around the Blue Star Marker beside Highway 79 that is a memorial to all veterans.The list goes on.One of our ongoing projects is keeping the pots in the courtyard and the planter in the front of Doctors Memorial Hospital. The Chamber of Commerce and the City are working on a grant for the purpose of beautifying the Highway 90 West from town to where the divided part merges back to two lanes. Garden Club participation is expected in this project.Look for a meeting announcement soon and come on and join us.Then next year when the Community Day of Service is announced Bonifay Garden Club will be a strong presence.HAPPY CORNERVolunteer Day of Service in Bonifay uses garden club members The ongoing debate over guns in America has led some to vociferously call for abolishing the Second Amendment. Thats just not wise thinking. There are common-sense restrictions on guns that fall within the scope of the Second Amendment. So theres no need to even consider abolishing it. Nevertheless, calls for abolishing the Second Amendment are coming from such respected figures like retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. And a new poll shows about 20 percent of Americans favor repealing the Second Amendment. In reality, that probably shouldnt be a surprising statistic. There are actually Americans, after all, who regularly support restrictions on speech that would not be allowed under the First Amendment. So, of course, there will always be a fringe minority out there yapping for scrapping the Second Amendment. Or the Third Amendment. Or the Fo urth Amendment. You get the point. Fortunately, t he anti-Second Amendment extremists have little support in Washington; even blue-state Democrats like Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California have made clear they support gun ownership for self-defense and hunting. Whats even more striking is that noted, liberal-leaning Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe also has dismissed the campaign to abolish the Second Amendment. In a piece for The Washington Post, Tribe wrote that the Second Amendment isnt the problem; in fact, Tribe declared, repealing the Second Amendment would not limit a single gun or enact a single regulation. The fact is abolishing the Second Amendment isnt necessary because the Supreme Court already set some reasonable parameters. In the Supreme Courts historic 2008 Heller decision that underlined an individuals right to bear arms, the court also noted that right wasnt unlimited „ and that certain classes of dangerous and unusualŽ weapons could be limited. The court also has allowed limits on assault weapons, large magazines and the number of weapons that can be stockpiled. Thats why instead of abolishing the Second Amendment, the focus should be on reducing the ability of Americans to use military-style weapons to kill innocent fellow citizens. The focus also should be on restricting the ability of mentally ill people „ and those with histories of domestic violence „ to have easy access to firearms; clearly more safeguards must be built in to immediately red-flagŽ such Americans whenever they try to purchase weapons. There is certainly widespread support for that kind of proactive approach. Gun advocates like to criticize the 1994 ban on assault weapons for its emphasis on cosmetic features; they deride it as a naive and unrealistic law designed by people who know nothing about guns. In an opinion piece, Palm Beach County criminologist Thomas Gabor said such poor standards of definition have undermined attempts to strictly regulate assault weapons because the gun industry can easily make cosmetic modifications to skirt the regulation.Ž A version of this editorial first appeared in the Florida Times-Union, a sister paper with GateHouse Media.Dont touch the Second Amendment Hazel Tison

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, September 26, 2018 A7 LOCAL & STATEMore than 250 criminal cases in question a er review of body cam video By Zack McDonald747-5071 | @PCNHzack zmcdonald@pcnh.comPANAMA CITY „ Prosecutors are reviewing more than 250 criminal cases involving Jackson County Sheriffs Office Deputy Zachary Wester after video emerged in the past month of him planting drugs in a vehicle during a traffic stop.Wester, 26, of Marianna, was fired Sept. 10 after more than two years as a patrol deputy with JCSO. His career now is under investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) after evidence arose that he had planted drugs during a February traffic stop in Marianna. As that investigation proceeds, the 14th Judicial Circuit State Attorneys Office is reviewing more than 250 cases to determine West-ers role and whether any misconduct took place.State Attorney Glenn Hess said his office so far has identified 263 cases in which Wester played a role, either as the lead officer, backup or an essential witness. Prosecutors said they have identified 10 cases that involved misconduct in which incarcerated peoples sentences will need to be vacated, and15 pending cases that have or will be dismissed. When FDLE concludes its investigation at an unde-termined date, authorities will decide whether to pursue criminal charges against Wester.Its speculation,Ž Hess said. But if youre accus-ing someone of planting drugs, they must have pos-sessed drugs. And I dont know of any provision in the law that authorizes a deputy to possess drugs outside of evidence they seize in the pursuit of an investigation.ŽHess said FDLE came to his office days ago to brief him and senior prosecutors about an investigation into Wester. During that briefing, Hess said he viewed a video and photographs from a traf-fic stop that resulted in the arrest of a woman on nar-cotics possession charges.The things I saw in the video caused me concern about his professionalism,Ž Hess said. As a result of that, I made the decision not to accept any cases in which he was participating. We also undertook a review of all cases made in the past two years by that officer and have been taking steps to correct a situation that is unacceptable.ŽThe video released Thursday by the SAO dates back to a traffic stop on Feb. 5 in Marianna, in which Teresa Odom was arrested after Wester said he found a baggie of methamphetamine in her vehicle.

** Holmes County Times-Advertiser | Wednesday, September 26, 2018 A9The entire traffic stop was recorded on Westers body camera and later aroused concern by the prosecution and defense attorney. They took the information to Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts, who began an internal investigation and called in FDLE to conduct an independent investigation. Rob-erts declined to comment on the case, as the FDLE investigation is ongoing. However, Wester has been fired after two years with JCSO. Before then, he worked as a Liberty County Sheriffs Office deputy from August 2015 until he joined JCSO. On Tuesday, prosecutors asked Circuit Judge Christopher Patterson in open court to vacate the sentence of Odom, the woman whose drug possession arrest was caught on body camera video. Patterson agreed.According to court records, Odom was on pretrial release from an earlier stolen property charge when Wester arrested her on Feb. 15. The new arrest prompted a judge to revoke her bail, which kept her behind bars for more than a month until the resolution of the drug case. She pleaded no contest to the drug charges brought by Wester on March 6 and was sentenced to four years of probation.It wasnt immediately clear how many other defendants might be in jail or prison as a result of alleged misconduct by Wester. Hess said he has an attor-ney working full time to review cases brought by Wester and expects more charges to be dis-missed because of misconduct.Cases that are good cases and are viable, that do not involve any questionable conduct, go forward in the court system,Ž he said. Those that are questionable, the benefit of the doubt goes to the defendant.ŽHess said the scope of misconduct involved in this case is unprecedented in the circuit and possibly across Florida. A motive behind the evidence tampering has yet to be established and there did not appear to be any common themes among the cases. DEPUTYFrom Page A7--HB 523, increases penalties to a third-degree felony for people who trespass on airport property to injure other people, damage property or impede the operations of aircraft. The bill is in reaction to instances since 2014 of people getting on property at Florida airports, including Orlando International, Tampa International and Miami International.-HB 961, allows businesses such as bars to receive up to 10 cases of branded glassware --24 glasses per container --a year from brewers or importers. Supporters of the beer glassŽ bill maintained that the change would allow small businesses to save on the cost of glassware. But a number of craft brew-ers opposed the measure, arguing it would allow a small number of brewers who could afford the costs to flood the market with company-branded glassware. PETSFrom Page A2

** B2 Wednesday, September 26, 2018 | Holmes County Times-AdvertiserBy Marley JayThe Associated PressNEW YORK „ Global stocks took small losses Monday after China reportedly pulled out of trade talks with the U.S. Industrial compa-nies and banks suffered some of the worst declines among Ameri-can stocks.The U.S. and China officially began taxing larger amounts of each others goods Monday, and the Wall Street Journal reported that China pulled out of talks that could have led to a new round of negotiations to end the trade war.The U.S. is now taxing another $200 billion in Chinese imports at a rate of 10 percent, and China added taxes of 5 to 10 percent on $60 billion in U.S. products. Oil prices jumped after OPEC decided not to produce more oil.Technology and health care companies rose, leaving U.S. indexes only slightly lower.The markets been remarkably resilient over the last couple of months while trade tensions were heating up,Ž said Terry Sandven, chief equity strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management.Sandven said the trade spat will endure past the midterm elec-tions in November, but stocks are likely to keep rising because of strong earnings growth for U.S. companies, com-bined with low inflation and low interest rates.After a volatile stretch early this year, the S&P hasnt risen or fallen 1 percent in a day since late June.Sandven noted that this years stock gains have been concentrated in technology, retail and health care companies. That was the case Monday, as Apple gained 1.4 percent to $220.79 and drug and infant formula maker Abbott Laboratories advanced 3.5 percent to $71.44. Sandven said it would be an encouraging sign for the market if other sectors do better.OPEC and key allies like Russia decided not to increase their oil output further. Produc-tion is falling in some OPEC nations, including Iran, which faces new sanctions from the U.S.Benchmark U.S. crude gained 1.8 percent to $72.08 a barrel in New York while Brent crude, the international standard for oil prices, rose 3 percent to $81.20 a barrel in London, its highest price in more than three years.Airlines and other transportation companies fell as investors anticipated they will have to pay higher prices for fuel.Global stocks dip on China reportWhy the gig economy may not be the workforce of the futureBy Christopher RugaberThe Associated PressWASHINGTON „ The gigŽ economy might not be the new frontier for Americas workforce after all.From Uber to Task-Rabbit to YourMechanic, so-called gig work „ task-oriented work offered by online apps „ has been promoted as providing the flexibility and inde-pendence that traditional jobs dont offer. Yet the evidence is growing that over time, these jobs dont deliver the financial returns many workers expect.And they dont appear to be reshaping the work-force. Over the past two years, pay for gig workers has dropped, and they are earning a growing share of their income else-where, a new study finds. Most Americans who earn income through online platforms do so for only a few months each year, according to the study by the JPMorgan Chase Insti-tute released Monday.The study, along with other research, points to three conclusions about the gig economy: Dont believe hypeOnline work platforms took off after Ubers founding in 2009. They bene“ ted from a weak economic recovery that had left millions of Americans unemployed and desperate for work. The initial popularity of gig work prompted a rash of speculation that independent workers „ freelancers as well as gig workers and contractors „ would soon occupy a steadily larger portion of the workforce. In October, a study by the Freelancers Union and Upwork, a freelancing website, predicted that a majority of U.S. workers would be freelancers by 2027. Yet the JPMorgan Chase Institutes report casts doubt on that likelihood. It found that among drivers, 58 percent work just three months or less each year through online economy websites. These include ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft as well as delivery drivers and movers who “ nd work through online apps. Amazon, for example, now uses independent drivers to deliver some packages.Falling pay hurtsThe number of gig workers has grown substantially in the past “ ve years, the institute found, but growth is slowing. Among drivers, a ” ood of competition on sites like Uber and Lyft has led to lower pay. In March 2018, about 1.6 percent of families participated in the gig economy, equivalent to about 2 million households, the study said. That is barely up from 1.5 percent a year earlier. Drivers for Uber, Lyft and other platforms now collectively earn only about half as much each month as they did “ ve years ago, the institute said. Average monthly incomes have fallen from $1,535 in October 2012 to just $762 in March of this year, not adjusted for in” ation. That drop likely re” ects the fact that many drivers are probably working fewer hours, Grieg said. Many have probably found other sources of income as the job market has strengthened.Online-platform companies are evolvingSo far, these trends dont appear to be harming most of the online platform companies themselves. Uber is still growing and preparing to sell shares to the public. Some other sites are forming partnerships with larger retailers. The JPMorgan Institute study found that transportation is increasingly the dominant force in the gig economy. Driving makes up 56 percent of all gig work, up from just 6 percent in 2013. Selling items through such online sites as eBay and Etsy has sunk to 19 percent of gig work, down from 72 percent. Its really those transportation platforms that have grown tremendously and now represent the lions share of the dollars and participation,Ž Grieg said. Uber is still reporting rapid expansion. Its revenue jumped 63 percent to $2.8 billion in the April-June quarter from a year ago. Other platforms are being bought or are linking up with larger companies. Furniture retailer Ikea purchased TaskRabbit last year. Walmart has developed a partnership with Handy; both sites enable consumers to pay people for odd jobs like home repairs or furniture assembly. The new partnerships may spur more growth for companies like TaskRabbit. Yet the odd jobs platforms have never attracted as many workers: Just 0.1 percent of households earned income through companies like TaskRabbit in March 2018, the institute found.Struggles on the side BUSINESSA Lyft logo is installed on a Lyft drivers car next to an Uber sticker Jan. 31 in Pittsburgh. [GENE J. PUSKAR/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS] By Joe McDonaldThe Associated PressBEIJING „ China and the United States imposed new tariff hikes on each others goods Monday and Beijing accused Washington of bullying, giving no sign of compromise in an intensifying battle over technology that is weighing on global eco-nomic growth.U.S. regulators went ahead with a planned 10 percent tax on a $200 billion list of 5,745 Chinese imports including bicycles and furniture. Chinas customs agency said it responded at noon by beginning to collect taxes of 5 or 10 percent on a $60 billion list of 5,207 American goods, from honey to industrial chemicals.The conflict stems from U.S. President Donald Trumps complaints Beijing steals or pressures foreign companies to hand over technology.American officials say Chinese plans for state-led development of global competitors in robotics and other technologies violate its market-opening obligations and might erode U.S. industrial leadership.Chinas leaders offered to narrow their politically sensitive, multibillion-dollar trade surplus with the United States by purchasing more natural gas and other American exports. But they have rejected pressure to change industry plans the communist leadership sees as a path to prosperity and global influence.Mondays tariff hike follows a report by The Wall Street Journal that Chinese officials pulled out of a meeting to discuss possible talks proposed by Washington. The Chinese government had given no public indication whether it would accept the invitation.Envoys last met Aug. 22 in Washington but reported no progress.With no settlement in sight, forecasters say the conflict between the two biggest economies could trim global growth through 2020.On Monday, the rat-ings agency Fitch cut its forecasts for next years Chinese and global eco-nomic growth by 0.1 percentage points to 6.1 percent and 3.1 percent, respectively.The trade war is now a reality,Ž said Fitchs chief economist, Brian Coulton, in a report. The downside risks to our global growth forecasts have also increased.ŽEarlier, the two sides imposed 25 percent pen-alties on $34 billion of each others goods in July and another $16 billion in August. Business groups say American companies also report Chinese regulators are starting to disrupt their operations through slower customs clearance and more environmental and other inspections.US, China hike tari s as trade row intensi es

Forcing kids eat their peas or broccoli may be causing more harm than good. An expert from the University of Michigan advises parents to take it easy. Pressuring kids to eat healthy foods that they turn their noses up at can make mealtime painful and damage the parentchild bond, said Julie Lumeng, director of the U-M Center for Human Growth and Development and a physician at C.S. Mott Childrens Hospital. The research, published this summer in the journal Appetite, found that pressuring kids to eat food they dont like and picky eating go hand-inhand. Yet, insisting that kids eat food they dont want doesnt affect their weight or whether they will become picky eaters, the study found. We found that pressuring children to eat wasnt linked with reductions in selective eating. Given that we dont find much evidence of changes in selective eating as a result of pressuring children, it raises questions about whether it is worth it to pressure children,Ž Lumeng said. The downsides may outweigh any benefit „ and the downsides may be negative impacts on the childs own sense of wellbeing and autonomy, as well as the parent-child relationship.Ž Using coercion to get kids to eat can cause mealtime tension, and the research didnt find evidence that pestering or bribing reduced or increased selective eating. So, in other words, it didnt seem to make it worse or better; it just didnt do anything,Ž Lumeng said. People theorize it could make kids even pickier, though our study didnt find evidence for that.Ž Researchers have explored the topic for 10 to 15 years. There have been about a dozen prior studies that have looked at pieces of these links before, and the bulk of these prior studies also found no evidence for links between picky eating, pressuring feeding and growth in children. So our study findings line up with what others have found as well,Ž Lumeng said. Picky eating is rarely a health issue associated with nutritional deficiencies or poor weight gain or growth, Lumeng said. And parental pressure may not only be frustrating for adults and children, it may be squelching their personality, she said. If you have a selective eater, try some of Lumengs tips: € Model eating healthy foods. This is particularly effective when the model is another child as opposed to an adult. € Encourage one taste of a food repeatedly. This has been shown to ultimately lead to greater acceptance of the new food. € Mix it up. Allowing children to mix a new or disliked food with a liked food (such as ranch dressing) has also been shown to have positive effects on their acceptance of the new or disliked food.No pressure If you have a school activity or news event youd like covered, please send information to: Already have photos or an article youd like to share?
