the fact he can remember his name and his aunties name and ride a scooter and not passed out is pretty impresive but the long term affects on this kids developing brain could be extensive cause alcohol would kill more of his brain cells and looking at the video he didnt have many to begin with
Carys Nolan's comment, September 1, 9:08 PM
All areas of this young man's well-being are effected by his drinking. He has beliefs around drinking and that it is something which is acceptable, even for children, and is not bad for his health. He would have developed these beliefs because of his family and friends who all are okay with him drinking as they don't believe it to be bad for him either. Therefore he will be uneducated on the subject since the people around him obviously are too which is what would have lead to these beliefs of alcohol being fine (spiritual). The fact that he has these beliefs because he doesn't know any better will have a knock on effect with his physical well-being because he doesn't know what's good for him and so carelessly drinks too much leading to him becoming extremely drunk in the short term which means that he will be struggling to keep his balance and think straight. It will also make him feel sick and probably have a headache. He could even have a hangover the next day. In the long term hi health will also be affected because the ethyl in alcohol can damage brain cells; especially with him only being nine because your brain is till developing until your about 25 (physical). These long term effects could have a negative effect on his mental well-being because he would have decreased intelligence levels which would affect his ability to do well in school an eventually being able to get a decent, well-paying job which could also lower his self worth as he would feel like he can't do anything. (mental/emotional). Damaged brain cells could also affect his social skills and make him short-tempered which would leave him with an inability to communicate well (social). This can also link back to his mental/emotional well-being because he would be unable to develop and maintain relationships with other people which would make him feel lonely and maybe angry about the issue which would only make his problem worse (mental/emotional).
Zac Aim's comment, September 1, 9:17 PM
the child's well being would be affected because he would be killing his brain cells. His physical well being would be affected because he would think he is the man and do anything with no consequences, this could lead to jim breaking law which he is already doing and get taken away from his family. his mental and emotional well being would be affected because he could get angry and frustrated because he cant walk straight as he has lost all coordination due to the amount of alcohol he has had, this means that long term he may have learning disabilities and memory loss. His spiritual well being could be affected because he has lost his beliefs and has to much confidence and could do something that he regrets. His social well being would be affected because people would see him and think what the hell is that kid doing drinking alcohol and stay away from him. The positives of him drinking this much alcohol is that he would look cool in front of his friends and therefore be happier also he would enjoy himself more because he is drunk, the negatives of drinking this much at the age of 8 is never ending some of the many affects are learning disabilities, memory loss, anger, frustration, slow reaction time and reduced coordination

if someone is fit physically then there personal well being would be affected because they are fit and have a stronger mental toughness. your menatl and emotional well being would be enhanced because you would be able to focus better. your physical well being would be enhanced because your doing more exercise and therefore are fitter and will have a increase in self confidence. your social well being would be enhanced because you can participate in activities with other people that like staying fit. your spiritual well being would be enhanced because you would believe that you could do well in your exams and therefore would have more of a drive
Utu's comment, September 1, 9:07 PM
If you were a active personal it could affect you positively in case of school studies. It will enhance your ability to think clearly during school and help you absorb things more quickly, as you have a healthy lifestyle and a healthy mind-set of things. If you weren't a physical person then this may be a obstacle to you not doing well in school or to not think properly, because you not being a physical person affects the way you think and act to situations like you doing your homework for example if you were too lazy to exercise then maybe that'll effect the way you relate to school work and maybe even other things. It not only affects you physically but mentally as well in the way you think to things like school or studies.
Jo Jaipradit's comment, September 1, 9:27 PM
Staying fit will benefit you in more than one way like what was in the article.. 'physical fitness in childhood and teenage years is beneficial for both physical and mental well-being throughout life. But a growing body of evidence suggests it may also play a key role in brain health and academic performance.' meaning that by keeping physically healthy and fit it will help you mentally and relieve stress. It will definitely help you health wise and possibly get you to sleep easier at night and you're more likely to wake up and live the day with energy. All of this contributes to your psychological health as well like being able to think with a clear head and less likely to feel mentally drained. This will positively affect your well-being as you will be physically fit meaning less chances of obesity and other problems to do with being unfit which will limit your mind from becoming drained or pressured from stress and easing your mind improving your mental and emotional well-being, this will then possibly make you more confident which will let you allow yourself to be more out there joining different social groups or clubs where you can keep fit and stay happy with your surroundings and the people you surround yourself with - this will then improve your spiritual well-being as your beliefs and values can become more positive from having a positive mindset and stale physical health. Although, there are a lot of highly successful people who have lived or still live with a disability making it hard for them to keep fit mentally/physically yet they achieve extraordinary things for example.. Hellen Keller becoming blind and deaf by the age of 19 months and yet became an American author, political activist and lecturer.. also there is Vincent Van Gogh who suffered from severe mental disabilities and still managed to produce over 1000 paintings and drawings, some live today and are worth up to $90M. So a negative is that you might not need to be physically fit even though it would be helpful and trying to keep physically fit can take up time and the pressure of having to stay fit to keep a clear mind and so on can also affect you well-being by causing stress into having to be healthy ect. But i still believe being fit can benefit you in more ways that being unfit.

Natalie jade's comment, September 1, 9:31 PM
If you have a high intake of salt this could lead to obesity and other dangerous affects such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and stroke.Teenagers need to lower there intake of salt and buy freshly veges and fruits and cans of food without added salt to help them become more healthier
Carys Nolan's comment, September 1, 9:32 PM
The main physical affects of consuming too much salt on NZ teenagers, so more than the American Heart Association's recommendation of 1,500 milligrams a day, is obesity and inflammation. It can lead to obesity because foods high in salt contain the hormone called leptin which can increase appetites and prevent the burning of fat in your body. This fat and inflammation then lead to other medical illnesses like diabetes, heart disease and a stroke. This would be high in NZ teenagers because we tend to consume a lot of those kinds of product high in salt like chips, pizza, fried chicken and even gravy. To avoid this problem they could try to reduce their salt intake by choosing other foods which are lower in salt or have no salt like fresh, frozen or canned vegetable but you will have to make sure that they have a "no salt added" label. But they avoid canned meat because this tend to contain quite a bit of salt. Since gravy contains a high amount of salt people could look at other ways of flavouring their food like with herbs and spices because these don't have any salt and taste just as nice if not better on your food! Also, putting extra salt on your food should be avoided because it is not necessary.

my impressions on this article is that it is a good way to show people how much sugar they are really drinking in their fizzy drinks, and that it might change their mind about what they are drinking. This article has changed my impression on fizzy drinks by making me want to drink less of the fizzy drinks i used to drink but now only have them on special occasions.
Carys Nolan's comment, September 1, 9:37 PM
My impressions of this article is that it is a really good way to try and get this message across to people about how much sugar is really in fizzy drinks. This is because some things get across to people better if they are visual learners. This is why Henry stated in his article that "we all know there is a lot of sugar in our drinks, but to me the 52 grams on the back of the bottle doesn't really mean much". So this should really make it clear to people and 'scare' them away from fizzy drinks as it is proving that they are not just lollipops in disguise but can be even worse! My impressions on fizzy drinks were already that they were bad for you and full of sugar so I tend to stay away from them anyway. But this article has still come as a shock to me as I didn't realise it was actually so much sugar and the visual representations are really good and effective because it really hits you, this issue of fizzy drinks and how much people actually consume.

Thomas Kim's comment, September 1, 9:16 PM
If parents are thinking their children are leaner than they actually are, this will affect their well beings dramatically. The physical well being of children would be obesity. The parents are feeding their children unhealthy foods because they think their children are perfectly fine. Yet the children don't really realize it either until a social factor comes in (e.g. bullying at school, making friends or getting a boyfriend/girlfriend, etc...). The children's mental well-being would be affected as well due to not realizing their own weight and size.

Physically Alex's family were deteriorating as they were worried and exhausted about Alex's safety. Mentally and emotionally Alex's family were tired and may have been distracted from work and such as their minds could have been on Alex and not on the job which could have made them lose jobs and therefore loose income for necessities such as food and a house. Socially Alex's family would have been quieter and distracted as their minds would be on Alex and whats going on. Spiritually Alex's family is affected because their core values, the family could feel betrayed as they may believe that no drugs are to be used for a buzz.
