Reasons to Choose Organic for Children
Stacy Cary is an investor in Corganics and the owner of Holistic Health of Texas. In addition, Stacy Stine Cary advocates for parents and families, and cooks with organic ingredients.
Organic food provides children with more nutrients while protecting their bodies from the harmful effects of pesticides. According to a study published in Pediatrics in 2009, exposure to the pesticide organophosphate (OP) correlates with a higher incidence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children. In the same year, The President's Cancer Panel urged parents to choose organic for their young children, since their developing bodies are more vulnerable to the carcinogens in many common pesticides.
Encouragingly, a study published in Environmental Health Perspectives in 2006 found that once children’s diets become fully organic, the levels of pesticides in their bodies drop to zero. These same children then gain the benefits of a diet rich in organic produce, which scientists in the European Union have determined contains as much as 50 percent more antioxidants than conventionally grown fruits and vegetables. These foods also help to strengthen the immune system, improve memory, and even create a better taste experience for picky young eaters.
The Mission of the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas
Stacy Cary worked at Patland Oil Company, a family business, for 25 years. In addition to starting a number of successful business ventures, Stacy Stine Cary has been a longtime supporter of the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas.
The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas currently serve more than 32,000 girls and 17,000 women in 32 counties throughout the region, a population the organization seeks to assist in reversing a number of troubling trends. According to a study conducted by Dove in 2009, for example, seven in 10 girls have negative feelings about themselves in some way. The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas work toward overcoming these issues of self-image by employing a talented staff of group leaders. These leaders specialize in helping girls achieve their goals through self-esteem building practices rooted in positivity and affirmation. Scout leaders also strive to empower their girls, both professionally and personally, in light of the fact that 97 percent of welfare recipients are either women or children. The Girl Scouts continue to make progress in their quest. Today, about 80 percent of parents of scouts report that not only has their daughter experienced increased self-confidence, but they have improved academically as well.
Children's Learning and Intellectual Processes Through the Years
An experienced Texas businesswoman, Stacy Cary has proven successful in several ventures. In addition to working in the state's oil and gas markets and in real estate development, Stacy Stine Cary established and promotes Family Focus, an organization that advocates for the right of parents to educate their children as they see fit. Stacy Cary works regularly with legislators as a parental rights activist.
Home schooling is an important part of the parental rights agenda. One major force in the home school movement is the Texas Home School Coalition (THSC), which provides free legal assistance, a free handbook, and other information for parents, including facts about the intellectual growth processes that children go through.
The most basic level of intellectual growth is remembering information. Early learning includes activities such as selecting, matching, listing and labeling. Understanding is the next step, and it occurs when children learn concepts. It is evident when children can explain data in their own words, give examples, or describe a real-world instance of a given fact. Success at this level enables students to apply knowledge to a range of situations.
Analyzing information takes students from acquiring concepts to categorizing and making connections between multiple disciplines, permitting value judgments. The next evaluational stage focuses on children's choice-making abilities. They might enjoy debating or essays. The final stage is creativity. Children learn to derive new meaning from new ideas. Creativity-based learning can lead to results that will surprise students and parents alike.
