5 Literacy Activities for Young Learners:
Many parents ask “how can I help my young child become a book lover?” or “what are some ways my child can improve his/her language skills?” Everyone knows literacy is an essential skill for school success, and no parent wants his/her child to fall behind right from the get go. But it doesn’t have to be about relentlessly studying flash cards and completing reading tests.
Literacy can be fun!
Here’s 5 activities to help your child develop literacy skills AND have a good time!
1. Play games involving letters and sounds. Board games are great (tech-free) family fun, and can build grammar and reading skills, as well as strategy, problem-solving, and numeracy skills, which are all essential to school success.
2. Read books together. Nothing beats a rainy Saturday or pre-bedtime snuggle with a book. Reading together is great bonding time, and can (and should) lead to interesting conversations about what it is you’re reading about.
3. Get creative while reading. Draw pictures of what you’re reading, act out scenes, put on a character puppet show, or make up alternate endings. Use your imagination and make your books come to life!
4. Visit the library. A trip to the local library can lead to discovering new books, new activities, and new friends! Make it a regular routine and your child will anticipate library day every week!
5. Recognize reading isn’t always about books. Watching your child sit down with a book for an extended period of time is ideal, but is not the only sign of developing literacy skills. Street signs, cereal boxes, video games, comics… your child can practice reading a lot of things that aren’t books!
*Bonus Tip* 6. Practice what you preach. The easiest way to get kids excited about reading, language, and learning, is to do the same yourself. If they see you doing it, they’ll want to do it too!
Anxiety-We are here to help!
Sometimes it takes a leap of faith. Treating anxiety can be difficult. Along with counselling, prescription medications can have a hugely positive impact in treating General Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety can affect every part of a person's life and it can also hold the sufferer back from getting treatment. The fear of what the medication will do or what bad side effects may occur is enough to scare the patient away. The perfect drug for anxiety would work quickly and would have no side effects. I've searched high and low but the perfect drug doesn't exist. All medications carry a risk, but many of them can be lifesaving and that's a pretty big benefit.
Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI's) and Serotonin and Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRI's) can be very effective in General Anxiety Disorder. These drugs take at least 4 weeks to start to work. We often counsel patients that they need to be patient with these drugs. Side effects can show up within a day or two of starting the medication, but they will lessen with time. The benefit of living without anxiety, and the enjoyment of life that is restored, can far outweigh the small but noticeable side effects.
If you have started a new medication for anxiety, talk to your pharmacist. Let us know what you are experiencing. There might be ways to make the side effects go away. We also want to know if you are feeling better on the drug. There are many SSRI's to choose from and it can be a matter of trial and error to find the right drug.
If you haven't started a medication, but your doctor has recommended one, your pharmacist is there to talk to you about it. We can go through how to take the pill and what to expect in the coming days and weeks.
It can take that leap of faith to get started, but your pharmacist can help ease your fears.

Did you know our pharmacists can prescribe for eczema?
Eczema is a lifelong skin condition that first appears in early childhood and reoccurs periodically into adulthood. It is recognized by itchiness, oozing, weeping sores, and cracking/bleeding skin. Eczema ranges in severity and treatment options, but usually appears in several common sites (hands, wrists, legs, feet, behind the knees, neck, and face). Although eczema should first be diagnosed by a physician, pharmacists can prescribe medications to treat eczema flare-ups.
Proper skin care and moisturizing is helpful to prevent eczema from worsening and often is the only treatment needed. However, prescription medication is sometimes required when eczema becomes inflamed and irritated.
