Razumich & Delamater Law August 2019



FROM THE DESKS OF Razumich & Delamater It’s hard to believe that the year is already halfway over! Due to the publishing schedule, I’m writing this on July 1, and it’s been a WILD ride so far. We’ve said goodbye to two team members and hello to one new member. By the time this hits your inbox, we may actually be saying hello to yet another member. We’ve handled two juries, multiple suppressions, and helped an additional 84 people get the results they deserve. On the administrative front, we’re excited to continue testing new methods of staying in contact with the people we help. Our new text messaging system has been successful at giving people extra avenues to reach us, and we should be rolling out new blog content starting this month that we’ll be sharing on our social media accounts and emailing to you, just like with this newsletter. In fact, the only thing that hasn’t gone well so far this year is that I still haven’t made it to any baseball games, and I’ve fallen by the wayside on my resolution to have a hot breakfast at least twice each week. Thankfully, there’s another six months to turn that around.

It’s no secret kids love water. When the summer heat waves peak, kids in bright bathing suits charge through sprinklers, shoot down hose-powered Slip N’Slides, and take turns perfecting their cannon- balls at the neighborhood pool. This affinity for water is particularly powerful when they’re small; the single word“pool”can inspire them to eat broccoli or even clean up their rooms. But what makes the water so alluring? Susan Brown, an assistant director and parent educator at Commonwealth Parenting, has a theory. “I like to think of children’s fingers as if there are little brains on the tip of each finger,”Brown wrote in an article for Community Idea Stations.“When these little brains get stimulated through play, neurons begin to fire. This firing of neurons excites the brain, causing it to grow bigger, stronger, and more facile, setting the brain up for higher levels of cognition. One of the simplest ways to provide sensory play is through water activities.” In other words, kids love water because splashing around in it is literally helping their brains grow. For busy parents, this is a blessing: Letting the kids loose at the pool under the eye of an expe- rienced lifeguard can be an ideal way to keep the summer fun rolling for kids and adults alike. Follow the tips below to enrich the pool experience for your kids and get those neurons firing.
