Health Benefits of Black Beans
Black beans are classified as legumes. Also known as turtle beans because of their hard, shell-like appearance, black beans are, in fact, the edible seeds of the plant. Black beans also offer a variety of phytonutrients like saponins, anthocyanins, kaempferol, and quercetin, all of which possess antioxidant properties. As with many beans and legumes, one-cup serving of cooked black beans provides (in daily recommended values): 227 calories, 15 grams protein, 15 grams fiber. Beans contain starch - a form of complex carbohydrate. Starch acts as a "slow burn" energy store that is slowly digested by the body, preventing a spike in blood sugar levels.​​​​​​​​

Black beans are high in protein and fiber. The iron, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper, and zinc in black beans all contribute to building and maintaining bone structure and strength.

Maintaining a low sodium intake is essential for keeping blood pressure at a normal level. Black beans are naturally low in sodium and contain potassium, calcium, and magnesium, all of which have been found to decrease blood pressure naturally. Be sure to purchase low sodium canned options and still drain and rinse to further reduce sodium content.

Studies have shown that individuals with type 1 diabetes who consume high-fiber diets have lower blood glucose levels; additionally, type 2 diabetics may have improved blood sugar, lipids, and insulin levels. One cup (172 grams) of cooked black beans contributes 15 grams of fiber. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends 21-25 grams of fiber per day for women and 30-38 grams per day for men.

The black bean's fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, and phytonutrient content, coupled with its lack of cholesterol, all support heart health. 

The fiber in black beans helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease. The quercetin and saponins found in black beans also aid in cardio protection.​

Quercetin is a natural antiinflammator that appears to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis and protect against the damage caused by low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (Bad Cholesterol).​​​​​​​​​

Research also indicates that saponins help lower blood lipid and blood cholesterol levels, which prevents damage to the heart and blood vessels.

Selenium is a mineral that is not present in most fruits and vegetables but can be found in black beans. It plays a role in liver enzyme function and helps detoxify some cancer-causing compounds in the body. Additionally, selenium prevents inflammation and decreases tumor growth rates. Saponins in black beans prevent cancer cells from multiplying and spreadin throughout the body. Fiber intakes from fruits and vegetables like black beans are associated with a lowered risk of colorectal cancer. Black beans are high in folate, which plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair.

Because of their fiber content, black beans help to prevent constipation and promote regularity for a healthy digestive tract. They also provide fuel for the healthy bacteria in the colon. Dietary fiber is commonly recognized as an important factor in weight loss and weight management by functioning as a "bulking agent" in the digestive system. High fiber foods increase satiety (a sense of fullness) and reduce appetite, making an individual feel fuller for longer, thereby lowering overall calorie intake. Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like black beans decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and overall mortality while promoting a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, and overall lower weight.​

        “BE STILL & BE QUIET”
   How to Discipline Effectively

Mantra #1: “The more time you spend with your children when they are young, the more time they will want to spend with you when you are old.”

Let us begin with Good Parenting 101. Good communication is necessary in a family. Children learn to communicate long before they  speak their first words. All parents are couraged to talk and sing to their babies while they are in the womb. Later, using their other senses, toddlers respond to ritual behavior of family members and learn to utilize verbal and nonverbal communication to get their needs

Parents must remember the impact of their facial expressions, tones of voice, and body language when touching and holding their babies.

The way to establish good communication with your child as he matures is to encourage trust and openness. A parent cannot display wide mood swings when responding to a child’s behavior good or bad.

Do not be willing to listen to Muhammad and allow him to express himself one day and then the next day because of your mood refuse to listen to anything he has to say. Be consistent in your words and actions. Let your actions show you are interested in hearing your son’s thoughts and dreams. That lets Muhammad know he is important to you.

Utilizing the Be Still & Be Quiet approach, encourage positive
behavior through the following steps:

•  Younger children need lots of hugs, kisses, smiles, and
praises to reassure them that they are loved. In this way, you
encourage your child to repeat positive behavior. Teach your
child how to be happy!

• Listen carefully to your child. If he is excited about your focus
and attention, he will try harder to please you. If you work,
set aside time to pay special attention and really listen to your
child talk to you.

• Your child’s needs and wants change as he grows from a
toddler to a teen. Listening to and observing his behavior
carefully will help you prepare and deal with these changes.

• Teenagers need realistic limits when it comes to house rules
and unity. Weekends might include more TV and computer
time, but no cellphone calls made or received after a certain
time at night. Teens are to be where they are supposed to
be and obey curfews and other boundary limitations. They
should be prepared for the next school day. Possibly read
a book one hour before bedtime; or, read a book a week
throughout the semester.

• Discuss any change in house rules, limitations, or expectations
with your child. After discussing your reason for changing
your rules or establishing limits, listen to his concerns about the’
changes. Come to a mutual understanding, and compromise
when possible.

Be prepared for your child to test you to see if you are serious.
Continue to be firm as this is a necessary process in teaching
Your child obedience and respect.

Possibly your child is getting mixed messages regarding discipline from you, the daycare provider and/or the babysitter. Are there house rules and structure in place for the babysitter until you come home from work; or, are there are no rules and no discipline? If nothing is in place, no wonder your child becomes confused. As the parent, you should know if your child’s care provider is easy going with few rules; or, if the provider is firm and disciplined in their style of providing care.

Consistency matters. Sending mixed messages to a child is confusing, and encourages oppositional-defiant behavior. A child quickly figures out who the players are and what their expectations are during a typical day.​ Therefore, do not wonder why she is crying, rebellious, hardheaded and difficult, acting out or just plain misbehaving.

How you care for your child affects society as a whole. It is not okay for you to practice poor parenting and poor healthcare for your child, whether it is her eating or sleeping habits. Why? Because society will have to pay the price for your child’s angry, loud, disrespectful, manipulative, and out-of-control behavior in the future.

​A child cannot spend the first five years of her life constantly talking and walking nonstop until she falls asleep. When a child is properly required to sleep, it allows for a lot of inner rest of the mind and relaxed body movement. The mind and body assesses all that has happened during the day.

This as opposed to the outer mind activity and agitated body movement. Children from one to five years old need at least 11–13 hours of sleep a day. The five to twelve year old needs at least 8–10 hours of sleep. Older teenagers, especially on school nights, need at least 8 hours of sleep a night.

A Be Still & Be Quiet teachable moment is never when you have company visiting, and certainly not when you are tired, frustrated, or angry. Your toddler can sense when you want him to hurry and go to sleep because you want to get back to your visitors, friends or family members. Guess what? It is not happening.

You can say, “Stop that crying, go to bed, I don’t want to hear it” a hundred times. No matter how late in the night it is, your child is not going to sleep unless this issue of going to bed and right to sleep have already been resolved by you and your toddler at some previous time and place.
Suppose you have chosen to be a stay-at-home mom. Without structure or routine, your child is constantly on the move with you. If you do not give her a daily nap, she is never still or quiet until sleep is so overpowering she cannot fight it anymore. This usually occurs when you are driving from one location to another. She will drop off to sleep in the car seat traveling from destination Walmart to the dry cleaners because that is the only time she has been given for a nap. Now with a mini-nap while traveling, she feels a burst of energy and is ready to go again until she can no longer hold up her head and sleep is calling her name. ​​​​

It is not the child’s fault that she is on an adult’s schedule without a specific time for naps and bedtime. Without a regular babysitter, or some form of respite care, your child will likely be with adults more than children. Her schedule will be a grown-up schedule that can go on into the night well after 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. before the child is put to bed for the night.

Then, the real battle begins with your toddler telling you, “I don’t want to go to bed.” This she says over, over and over again.​​
This battle can go from 30 minutes to more than an hour with the child yelling and crying, “I don’t want to go to bed.” As the parent, you are not listening but instead getting angry because in all probability you are also tired.

So with tears streaming down your toddler’s cheeks, we have a classic meltdown due to extreme tiredness by all of the participants in the household. No, your child is not “acting” or being a drama king. After all, who would have given her drama lessons if not you? This is a child who is overly tired having a meltdown. Also, she has in all likelihood learned negative behavior to get what she wants.

What happens next is that, you, the parent, now want to spank your daughter in anger because you are sleepy and tired and want to go to bed. When it comes to what is healthy for your child, there is no set-aside time. You usually discipline when angry without purpose other than to lash out at your child in frustration.

Once the house is quiet, unless the mother or father has to go to work, everyone in the house will probably sleep late. The next morning, your child is on the move with you to do it all over again. Even if you are not a stay-at-home mom or dad, if your child is running her own program, when you come home from work most of the evening is spent yelling and screaming at your toddler, who will not listen.
