June is Potty
Training
Awareness
Month
Many parents are unsure about
when to start toilet teaching or
“potty training.” Not all kids are
ready at the same age, so it’s
important to watch your child for
signs of readiness, such as stopping
an activity for a few seconds or
clutching his or her diaper.

• follow simple instructions
• understand words about the
toileting process
• control the muscles responsible
for elimination

• express a need to go verbally

Of course, teaching a toddler to
use a potty isn’t an overnight
experience. The process often
takes between 3 and 6 months,
although it may take more or less
time for some children. Although
some little ones can learn to both
make it through the night without
wetting or soiling themselves
(or the bed) and use the potty
around the same time, it may take
additional months to even years to
master staying dry at night.
The two basic potty options are:

There are some stressful or difficult
times when you may want to put off
starting the toilet-teaching process
— when traveling, around the birth
of a sibling, changing from the crib
to the bed, moving to a new house,
or when your child is sick (especially
if diarrhea is a factor). It may be
better to postpone it until your
child’s environment is stable and
secure. Also, some experts may
recommend starting the process
during summer because kids wear
less clothing, but it is not a good
idea to wait if your child is ready.

Otherwise, it can take more time
than your child may have to find a
discreet location or restroom.
Experts disagree about whether
to use disposable training pants.
Some think that they’re just bigger
diapers and might make kids think
it’s OK to use them like diapers,
thus slowing the toilet-teaching
process.
Others feel that training pants are
a helpful step between diapers and
underwear. Because kids’ nighttime
bladder and bowel control often
lags behind their daytime control,
some parents like using training
pants at night. Others prefer that
their child use training pants when
they’re out and about. Once the
training pants remain dry for a few
days, kids can make the switch to
wearing underwear.
It’s common for a previously toilettaught child to have some trouble
using the potty during times of
stress. For example, a 2- or 3-yearold dealing with a new sibling may
regress (return to a previous level
of development).

cardiac arrest survival rates.
This new method of CPR is
resulting in significant increases
in sudden cardiac arrest survival
rates. Through the support of
local county health organizations,
the educational movement Save
a Life SLO was created to bring
awareness of the new HandsOnly CPR method to SLO County
residents and provide training to
groups and individuals throughout
the county.
Hands-Only
CPR
can
be
remembered by its three simple
steps: call 9-1-1 immediately,
begin pushing hard and fast in
the center of the chest without
giving breaths, and continue until
help arrives. The body maintains
enough oxygen to keep vital
organs healthy for several minutes
if circulated through proper chest
compressions. By calling 9-1-1
and beginning Hands-Only CPR
immediately, bystanders can
significantly increase a person’s
chance of survival.
Local county health organizations
including the SLO County Public
Health Department’s Emergency
Medical Services Agency (EMSA),
Dignity Health/French Hospital
Medical Center and San Luis
Ambulance proudly support the
Hands-Only CPR method alongside
national organizations like the
American Heart Association and
American Red Cross.
“The collaboration of these
organizations has allowed this
movement to expand its reach far
beyond what each organization
could accomplish on its own. We
can already see the significant
impact this movement is having
in our County,” noted Kathy
Collins, Specialty Care Systems
Coordinator for the SLO County
EMSA. To date, over 5,000 local
residents have received training
in Hands-Only CPR through this
outreach effort.
In addition to the new HandsOnly CPR method, emergency
responders are also taking an
enhanced approach to onsite

care. In August 2015, emergency
responders began training in
High-Performance CPR. In this
innovative approach, responders
act like a pit crew. Each responder
is assigned a role enabling
them to maintain continuous
care with minimal interruptions
while administering necessary
medication,
ventilation
and
defibrillation with the support of
new technologies, all while on the
scene.
When paired with Hands-Only
CPR, High-Performance CPR has
been shown to increase survival
rates from sudden cardiac arrest
by 30-50%. Unlike conventional
CPR courses, Hands-Only CPR
takes only 5 minutes to learn.
While students do not receive a
certification, they do learn lifesaving skills that can be applied in
emergency situations.
Training demos are currently
taking place each month at
Thursday night Farmers’ Market
in San Luis Obispo and by
appointment.
Save A Life SLO is an educational
movement
dedicated
to
training San Luis Obispo County
residents in Hands-Only CPR. The
movement is proudly supported
by the SLO County Public Health
Department’s EMSA, Dignity
Health/French Hospital Medical
Center and San Luis Ambulance.

impulse purchases? Consider the
strategy used by reader Helane
Becker, a financial analyst who
lives in Millburn, N.J.
When her two kids mention things
they want, Ms. Becker adds the
items to each child’s wish list. A
few days or weeks later, she goes
over the lists with her kids -- and
sees which items they still want
to buy with their own money or
receive as birthday or holiday
gifts.
“When they were little, it
surprised me that, by Friday, they
sometimes couldn’t remember a
specific toy they so desperately
wanted on Tuesday,” Ms. Becker
says.
Keeping the change. Children
seem to have endless desires,
which shouldn’t be a huge shock.
After all, their purchases usually
aren’t costing them anything,
because they are spending their
parents’ money. The trick: Make
your kids feel like they’re spending
their own money.

I learned this with my daughter.
When Hannah went on her first
school field trip, I gave her $5 and
told her I wanted the change. She
returned with a bag of trinkets
and a few pennies.
On the next trip, I gave her $5
again. But this time, I told her she
could keep any money that was
left over. She came back with $5.
I later tried the same trick with
Hannah’s younger brother, Henry.
It wasn’t nearly so successful.
Still, it provided another chance
to talk about money, which, as
long as parents don’t overdo it, is
probably a good thing.
“You don’t want to turn them
into money-saving automatons,”
warns Meir Statman, a finance
professor at Santa Clara University
in California. “It’s good to know
when to put money into the piggy
bank. But it’s also good to know
when to take it out.”

Local History

San Luis Obispo
by Guy Crabb

It is the summer of 1916 in
downtown San Luis Obispo and
my wife Janet and I are taking
a walk into town to do several
things that are on Janet’s to-do
list. I have a pounding headache
and need to go to a drug store
to find the latest cure. Norton
Drug store, located at 709
Higuera (today, the Verizon
store has been in business here
for several years), is my favorite
store in town.

wings that stack on top of each
other. I honestly never thought
I would see one of those crazy
machines. It is red and white
and the pilot is waving at all
the people in the street. What
will they come up with next, a
machine that flies to the moon?
My head is really killing me now
after hearing that dagburn aero
plane. When I step into Norton’s
Drug store, the heavens above
open up. Those new big lights
that they have in the store are
something else. I say howdy
to the men at the counter and
find the newest medicine for
head pain; a bottle of Oxiden
Remedies. The bottle says it is
made in Maine and it will cure
lots of problems from headaches
to a sore toe. How can I go
wrong? As I look up I realize I’ve
lost sight of my wife, and that
can be trouble. Then I see that
she is waiting for me at the front
door of the store. After I make
my purchase we step out onto
the sidewalk and continue our
downtown journey.

Buy your copy of Monterey/Marsh Sts
100 Year Book. Remember the past, as
the future is right around the corner.

Enjoy Your Memories!

Just before we step into the
store, we hear a very loud noise,
but it isn’t coming from the
street, it is coming from the
sky. Janet looks up to see an
aero plane. We don’t see many
of these flying machines around
San Luis Obispo but they sure are
loud. Janet says, “Ever since the
war in Europe, more and more of
those soldiers are coming home
and building their own aero
planes and flying everywhere.
1916 is a wonderful year to live
in with all the new inventions
nowadays.” My wife is right and
I very much agree with her that
1916 is the perfect time to live if
you are excited about the future Immediately, my beautiful wife
of this great country, because of mentions that she would like
to walk into Miss O’Leary’s

store may not be the same hat
she will be wearing walking out.
I’m in trouble. Some of those
hats cost up to five dollars! I am
not happy about spending time
in the hat store, so I walk across
the street to the bicycle shop
at 719 Higuera (now Michael’s
Optical).
The shop owner
Clarence tells me he just got in
the new Mead Ranger bicycle
(Google this bike) made in
Chicago. It was advertised that
it would go anywhere. Just as I
am getting too interested, I hear
Janet call from across the street
and I say goodbye to Clarence.
As I walk out into the street,
I can see the Janet is holding
a box and wearing a hew hat.
Not paying attention to the
street, I am almost run over by
a horse-drawn buggy driven
by Doc Jones. He deftly avoids
running me over, and waves as
he drives by. Janet is standing
there with her mouth wide open
realizing I was almost killed.
“Are you alright?” Janet asks.
“I love your hat,” I reply. “Oh,
Guy!” she says back. We need
to stop off at Union Hardware
Store at 725 Higuera (Mother’s
Tavern has been located here
since the mid 1990s). We need
to get some baby chicks, chicken
feed, a bag of nails, 100 feet of
lumber, and a new bathtub. We
will get Mr. Sandercock to haul
the goods to the ranch north of
town. Janet writes the check
to cover the goods and the
delivery, and realizes that this is
our last check. We need to stop
off at the bank on the way home
to get more checks. Commercial
Bank of San Luis Obispo is at 799
Higuera (today Fanny Wrappers)
and it is always a pleasure to
walk in and see the beautiful

marble and wood everywhere.
We talk to the bank manager
and he gives us a new book of
checks.
We step out onto the street and
I can suddenly smell something
good in the air. The smell of fresh
baked bread could come from
several places downtown, but
my nose led us over to Monterey
Street to the Sauer Market and
Bakery. The Sauer (pronounced
like the word sour) Market has
been here at 848 Monterey
since the turn of the century.
The Sauer Market (today, the
building will be part of the new
Chinatown Project) has all kinds
of great food. Some of my
favorites are the hard candies
that cost a nickel per scoop.
What a bargain! When we walk
into the front door, I can smell
several different kinds of bread
they bake in their huge ovens
upstairs. We get two loaves and
a fresh pound of butter from
their icebox.
We have been walking around
a lot, and I ask Janet if we can
go home. She reminds me that
when we get home, I need to
feed our chickens, goats, and
pigs. I remind her that that
is why we have nine children.
Even though they are young,
they need to start learning how
to do more chores around the
ranch. Maybe while they do, I’ll
go sneak into the hay barn and
take a long nap. Good night San
Luis Obispo.

about words
PUBLIC SERVICE DAY
Thursday, June 23 is Public Service
Day. Sponsored and established
by the United Nations in 2003,
June 23 is a day to celebrate and
acknowledge the good deeds
and good spirit of public service
worldwide.
Public showed up in English in
the 1300s as an adjective through
Old French from the Latin word
publicus, meaning of the state, of
the people, general, ordinary, or
vulgar (oops – someone’s elitism
is showing). By the 1600s, public
was also being used as a noun,
meaning commonwealth, or
public property.
Public is related to the words
people,
populace,
popular,
publicity, publican,
puberty,
and pub. Its medieval English
synonym, folclic, sadly, never
made it out of the Middle Ages.
The word public first aligned itself
with the word service in 1893,
giving us public service.
Service also came through Old
French from Latin, though it
appeared in English two centuries
before public. The Latin donor
word was servitium, which meant
slavery or servitude, and came
directly from the Latin word for
slave, servus.

But back to the UN and June 23.
What sort of public service can we
each provide?
Moving a grocery cart so it won’t
whack into someone’s car?
Recommending a great book?
Offering a hand to someone who
could use it?
Contributing time or resources to
a social or environmental cause?
Maybe afterward we could all
meet somewhere where we can
enjoy being served – like maybe
the pub.
CELEBRATION OF SLOTH
Ah, slothfulness. Lazing about
doing nothing useful. Nothing
like it, especially on lazy summer
days. Some good folks published
an entire dictionary about it in
2011. Sloth - A Dictionary for the
Lazy, is a part of Adams Media’s
The Deadly Dictionaries series.
This particular volume defines
154 pages worth of lazy-related
words, interspersed with slothrelated quotations. Here are
some highlights:
aposiopesis – noun – (1570s) the
state one is in when one stops
speaking mid-sentence, either
due to the inability to finish the
thought, or sheer stubbornness.

fainéant – noun – (1610) a lazy
person or slacker.

necessarily due to enslavement). hebetude – noun – (1620s) state

JANUS WORDS
Don’t you love those words that
can mean exactly the opposite of
what they mean? They’ve been
called many names over the years,
though none of those names
have really stuck: contranyms,
antilogies, eniantodromes, and
Janus words. I’m fond of that
final one, which refers to the twofaced Roman god of transitions,
Janus. My favorite Janus words:

Many thanks to sources: Etymonline.com,

fast, or it can move fast.
Strike: either I can strike the ball

Garnish: a garnish can be either

Education
DYSLEXIA CAN BE CORRECTED
by Karyn Lutes, MA, CCC-SLP

Dyslexia is “a brain-based type of
learning disability that specifically
impairs a person’s ability to read,” as
explained by The National Institute
of Neurological Disorders and
Stroke, and those affected “typically
read at levels significantly lower than
expected, despite having normal
intelligence.”
Dyslexia mainly
affects written language (reading,
writing, and spelling), but can
also affect working with numbers,
and is sometimes accompanied
by Attention Deficit Hyperactive
Disorder (ADHD).
Many students struggle with
reading in school, and they may or
may not have been diagnosed with
dyslexia. These students are often
bright, so they quickly notice their
shortcomings compared to the skills
of their classmates and younger
siblings. This can result in eroded
self-esteem, anxiety, and frustration.
Tragically, these effects go well
beyond elementary school.
According to a long-term study
released in April 2011 by the American
Educational Association, “A student
who can’t read on grade level by
3rd grade is four times less likely to
graduate by age 19 than a child who
does read proficiently by that time.”
Early identification with specialized
intervention is the best remedy
to address reading, spelling, and
learning problems.
Warning signs of dyslexia and
reading problems include: slow,
choppy and inaccurate reading;
confusion between left and right;
mixing up sounds in words; failure
to remember or comprehend what
was read; poor spelling; difficulty
processing auditory or visual
information; limited vocabulary; very
slow writing; poor punctuation and
capitalization, and hard work with
limited achievement.
Dyslexia and reading problems are
the SYMPTOM of one or more weak
cognitive skills that, when identified
through an assessment, can explain
WHY an individual is struggling. Can
dyslexia and other reading challenges
be corrected? YES!

Central Coast Family

While we are biologically wired to
speak language, reading and spelling
are not automatic, so our brains
must create new neural-circuitry. In
2005, a neurological study published
by the National Academy of Sciences
Early Edition used 3-D functional MRI
to demonstrate that new neuropathways could be created in the
dyslexic brain (after only 8 weeks
of specialized brain training) to
correct neural circuitry, thus making
reading and learning easier and more
efficient.
Treatment should include a
sequential and structured one-toone proven program with strong
cognitive and clinical research
behind the intervention. Cognitive
skills remediation is very different
from tutoring and what schools can
offer. The framework of the school
system and tutoring is not geared
toward remediation of processing
skills, or dyslexia, because their focus
is limited to teaching knowledge and
higher-level concepts.
Many learning disabilities, including
dyslexia, can be permanently
corrected with specialized braintraining programs.
Children,
adolescents and adults, whose
learning had been crippled and
limited, can now experience a greater
potential with the opportunity to
connect their dreams to the reality
of their future.

with the resources
they need to thrive!

What do you offer
Central Coast families?

Display advertising in Central Coast Family offers an
extraordinary value. Our loyal readers are relatively
mature, prosperous, and educated family members
in two of California’s most affluent counties. They
take an active role in all aspects of parenting and
purchasing.
Every issue includes original feature articles and
calendar listings for six weeks of local family events.
Your ad is viewed the whole month through; not
discarded after a day or a week.
We offer the lowest rates in our region (and discounts
for non-profits or ads running 3 months or more).
All of our advertisers also enjoy FREE: full color
printing; basic graphic design; preferred placement
options; monthly edits; and website exposure!
