7-Year-Old Wins ASPCA Award For Rescuing More Than 1,300 Dogs

Among the things you’d expect from children aged between three and seven, rescuing dogs would probably not be on top of the list. Well, a seven-year-old has made headlines after he was recognized for saving more than 1300 dogs since he was four years old.

Roman McConn was named Kid of the Year for 2018 by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). Roman, who hails from Augusta, Georgia founded an organization called Project Freedom Ride. The organization rescues dogs from high-risk areas in Texas and finds loving families to accommodate them in their homes.

He says that when he turned four, he requested everyone who wanted to give him toys to donate some money to his cause instead. His mother, Jennifer McConn, is one of his biggest supporters and she motivated him to rescue a high number of dogs. The first time they transported dogs was in December 2016, when they transported 31 dogs to Washington.

But what can you do as a parent to get things back on track?

A perfect solution is to let the teenager calm down first so that the emotional distress goes down. From there, the teenager can start thinking rationally again, and you can work your way out of the crisis through a discussion after that.

Understand that there is nothing you can do to control the emotions that teenagers go through, and neither can they. You just have to let them run their course, and eventually, they'll settle on their own.

The melatonin is also linked to physical activity, hormone levels, alertness, body temperature, digestive activity, and immune functions. Thus, light-sensitive people experience a direct impact on sleep patterns and energy levels.

Another reason why we experience a disruption in our sleep patterns is the use of artificial light. This light confuses our natural body rhythms if we’re absorbing both light types at the same time.

Because of this, you’re likely to feel irritated and perplexed due to exposure of the mixture of two light sources. You can even feel frustrated, unable to relax, or deep sleep.

But it’s very important not to put the focus on the fact that the teenager is upset. Instead, let them feel or know that they have a right to be upset, as that is the only way to get to a point where a solution to the problem would be welcome or even useful.

Overreacting will only make the crisis worse. So, when your teenage child is having a breakdown, it is not time to issue threats or ultimatums. Trying to offer solutions, however well-intended, will not help either.

Your child is not broken, he/she is slowly recreating who they are so that they can finally mature.

So, when you see a teen in a crisis, the first thing you should do is calm them down. Everything else comes later.
