I have chelated during celebrations and on vacations.
Here are some reasons you may want to chelate during special occasions.
It may sound counterintuitive to some.
I prefer to consider the opportunities inherent in the situation:
Your child is home from school, so you can maximize round length.
Your child feels and therefore behaves better on round than off-round.
You feel you are making the best use of your time by starting another round.
You want to maintain a weekly rhythm, as your child does best with consistency- and maybe you, too. Habits that work for you are a shortcut to success!
You are excited to start the next round; no matter what is coming up on your family's calendar. Maybe it's what makes it possible for you to have the energy to get through busy times; ALA in particular can be very energizing.
What other reasons have you found for chelating during special times of the year?
