Postcards this week at Sweets Col- umn Winslow, IN 47598 were none, but the ol' mailbox is waiting patiently for the one to take us all on a vacation some- where with you. Winslow Patoka River is half full with a small stream of water flowing with ice all around and a flurry of snow on the ice. So pretty to see. Ending the 2017 year and into the 2018 year we have had cold, yes the bitter cold temps, and the wind didn't help out the weather either. The temps have been single digit to below ze- ro wind chill for more days and nights I have lost count. It was so bitterly cold my forehead got a headache, like when you eat cold ice cream too fast. This winter season has affected most of the United States from the north to the far south again. I will be happy when the temps rise a little so the water pipes don't keep freezing. Several homes in Winslow have had frozen or busted water and sewer lines and the Town had a leak on Main St. and North St. where it had fro- zen and running down the road so sand had to be applied. A big thank you to ev- eryone who helped your neighbor. I don't care for the sleet we might get, but the weather people said rain, sleet, and snow may come and the temps may be around the freezing degrees. I may have to get those grippers on my shoes, if they still sell them, or just stay inside the house until it's all over. Our wood stove at the Cabin just loves to eat the wood we keep putting in to keep Norm and I comfy co- zy on these cold, or should I say, these freezing days. We have several different places to get the wood to stoke the stove and we also have had to use our kerosene heater also when the coals dwindle and we have to start them up again. We are so grateful to have this energy of heat but it would be helpful if Mother Nature could take it a little easier on the below zero temps. On New Year's Eve, Norm and I stayed at the Cabin and Partied the New Year of 2018 in with our favorite drink. On New Year's Day of 2018, we had our Ham, cabbage, and black-eyed peas to help our New Year prosperous. No New Year's Resolutions for us, but to wish ev- eryone a happier and healthier year with family and friends. I love to go out in our areas and see the decorated yards still shining bright; they are so lovely to see along the road- ways. Soon it's going to be dull around here when the decorations are put away for the season; there won't be the color- ful lights and no decorations in the yard until February Valentine's Day. Oh well, that is okay. Saturday we got breakfast at the Winslow Fire Station where they served breakfast and lunch to help in the ex- pense for Jamie Sharp arrangements. We hope this was a great success. Ja- mie was thought of greatly by lots of the Winslow stars who knew him and his family. Well, I can't think of much more to ramble about, so keep an eye on fami- ly and friends, slow down and see what beauty is out in your neck of the woods. Always smile, wave, and say Hi to every- one you see this week. Since the New Year has begun, we have had several more stars wave at us on the road, and I say keep it going. We are a friendly county. Attention Deficient Hyper Activi- ty Disorder (ADHD) can be a strug- gle for parents and children. ADHD is characterized by impulsivity, inat- tention, and hyperactivity. Although children with ADHD can be just as smart and resilient as any other child, their brain makes them more prone to impulsive behavior and a lack of focus. Raising a child with ADHD can involve obstacles other parents may not have to face. Even though parent- ing a child with this challenge may be frustrating at times, it is not im- possible. It does require a different approach and a bit more patience, however. Here are a few tips to help. First, it is important to not become overwhelmed and take out your frus- trations on your child. The key is to remember your child has a medical condition and to acknowledge this fact. Just as we wouldn't blame a child that had a nut allergy for having an allergic reaction to nuts, we cannot blame a child with ADHD for some of the behaviors or inattention that result from that condition. I once had a child describe ADHD to me from their perspective. They said that it was like being on a car- ousel and not being able to stop the ride. Things would go in and out of their attention span whether they wanted them to or not. Because of this, we need to be patient and mod- el gentle and calm behavior. Children definitely mimic behav- iors they see. Therefore, if your de- meanor is calm your child may learn to be calm too. Furthermore, praise your child for having good behavior so they will know when they are doing well and feel rewarded. Second, create structure for your child so they can have success in school and at home. This is done by creating a daily routine for your child and sticking to it. Examples include having a set time to begin home- work, eat dinner, get ready for bed, go to sleep, etc. A regular bedtime that allows for eight hours of sleep is important for all children but especially for those who have ADHD. Lack of sleep will worsen their hyperactivity and fo- cus. In addition, think about setting a specific time for your child's tasks or chores. This makes it is easier for both the parent and child instead making a list of chores and expect- ing the child to complete them on their own. Third, have your child do a form of exercise. This can involve your child joining a sports team, playing at a park with friends, or just walk- ing/running in the neighborhood. Exercise will burn excess energy, improve concentration, decrease depression and anxiety, and stimu- late the brain. The fourth tip is to consider treat- ment for your child. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention rec- ommends "…for elementary school– aged children (6 –11 years of age), the primary care clinician should prescribe US Food and Drug Admin- istration–approved medications for ADHD and/or evidence-based par- ent and/or teacher-administered behavior therapy as treatment for ADHD, although preferably both medication and behavior therapy should be used together." Medication can help get ADHD symptoms such as impulsivity, lack of attention, and hyperactivity under control. Counseling can help with de- veloping organizational and social skills, dealing with stress, and in- creasing self-esteem. Talk with your doctor about these treatments to de- termine the best one for your child. Practicing these tips may make managing ADHD a little easier and allow your child to be more success- ful at school and home. When a child feels as though he or she is doing well, they are more likely to try to please adults and strive for positive behavior.

WHITE BEAN SOUP WITH ESCAROLE By Monica Sinclair It's week two of the new year. How are you doing with your resolutions? If you are still sticking with the one to eat healthier, I have a fantastic recipe for this week. Not only will it warm you up on these really cold days, but it's very low in fat so it will help you stay on track. It's also great for my vegetarian readers. For the meat eaters, it wouldn't hurt to add some chicken into this recipe. Enjoy! INGREDIENTS • 1 tbsp. olive oil • 1 small onion, chopped • 5 garlic cloves, minced • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounc- es each) reduced-so- dium chicken broth • 1 can (14-1/2 ounc- es) diced tomatoes, undrained • 1/2 tsp. Italian sea- soning • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes • 1 cup uncooked whole wheat orzo pasta • 1 bunch escarole or spinach, coarsely chopped (about 8 cups) • 1 can (15 ounces) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained • 1/4 cup grated Par- mesan cheese DIRECTIONS 1. In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until tender. 2. Add broth, tomatoes, Italian seasoning and pep- per flakes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes. 3. Stir in orzo and escarole. Return to a boil; cook 12-14 minutes or until orzo is tender. 4. Add beans; heat through, stirring occasionally.
