I made the mistake of watching Dr. Phil one day when this Frank Lawlis fellow was on, and I was suckered into reading his book, The IQ Answer. From the show — and admittedly I only caught the tail-end of it — I thought he was full of insightful methods to improve your child's cognitive abilities. Not so. He lost me by page 58 when he started bashing fluoride. As a person who has seen first-hand the effects of water lacking fluoride, I am not willing to forego my children's dental health. By page 64, he's touting so many supplements it's a wonder he hasn't killed someone by recommending them. I don't walk away from many books, but this just may be one of those. I mean, the guy doesn't even have a good website, so how good can he be? ha!
In other news, we took the kids to Stuckmeyer's for our annual pumpkin-pickin'. You will note they do have a website. Here are some pictures of the fun:
