After my father had his first stroke and brain bleed, all but one Dr. (Dr William Freeman of Neuroscience Intensive Care Director at Mayo Clinic) said that my father would never make any significant improvement. Many doctors said that my mother and I should live our own lives and let my father sit in a chair for the end of his life. Never! We tried everything including enrolling my father in the Brain Clinic located in Texas which cost about $1,600 Per Day. We were there for about 6 months. After 6 months the Brain Clinic told us that we had to leave as Dad was not making any progress. When we came back to Jacksonville we had to figure out another way.
As many of you may know, we grew up in the Panama Canal Zone where my father was a senior Panama Canal ships Pilot and worked with Army Special Forces and Navy. It just so happened that one of my childhood Zonian friends, Dan Lowinger had also moved from the Canal Zone to Jacksonville. Dan’s son was diagnosed with auditory processing disorder at an early age and Dan had looked for a way to help his son. He found LearningRx in Colorado and after learning how it could help his son, he decided to bring LearningRX to Jacksonville. The LearningRx programs provided unbelievable results for his son, and since then the Jacksonville LearningRx center has helped many many other kids and adults from elementary to college aged students that are gifted or have learning struggles such as processing disorders, Dyslexia, or ADHD. They have also helped stroke, and TBI patients and people diagnosed with Autism or Asperger’s syndrome.
Dan had heard that we had moved from the Brain Clinic in Texas back to Jacksonville and he called us telling us he felt LearningRX could help us. We were able to have Dad take part in a individualized LearningRx cognitive training program for the next 6 months. During the first 2 months we saw some measureable progress, however, after 6 months of training we could not believe the results. My father was able to memorize and recite the poem “IF” by Rudyard Kipling in front of 2,000 High School students and could now carry on full conversations with my mother and family. I could see his confidence and happiness rise and his frustration leave him. My mother said, “I now have my husband back and our children now have their father back”.
Learning Rx and Dan Lowinger’s desire to Never Quit for his son has helped hundreds of people. These two videos will give you an idea of what happened to a man who was at the top of his game, had a stroke an d massive brain bleed, in a coma and went from 180 lbs to 95 lbs, to a man who could crack jokes again. In the last days, he would walk the LearningRx trainer to her car and he would run down the beach with his family once again. The largest “Thanks and We Love You” to all the people at LearningRx. You helped us have our Dad back and without you, I do not think the NEVER QUIT events would have taken place, helping thousands and I believe saving the lives of so many. The good that has come from kindness and devotion is unmeasurable.
To anyone reading this, you ever need one of the most enthusiastic giving groups of people to help you, please do call them at: 904 992 0971 or www.Learingrx.com/jacksonville-east
Thank you Learning RX,.
Always gratefully yours,
The Petroni family.
Children Should Listen to Their Parents’ Instruction.
Society encourages children to disregard their parents’ teachings and make their own choices. Young people often think their parents are unreasonable or do not understand.
Proverbs 6:20-23 — Listen to the instruction of parents, do not forsake it. Remember that parents are older and more experienced. They may not be perfect (neither are the kids!) yet they are still wiser.
(See also Prov. 1:8; 15:5; 23:22).
Children Should Respect Honor and Care for their Parents.
Young people today mock, ridicule, and openly flaunt their parents. Such conduct is encouraged by many aspects of society and is ignored by many parents.
Ephesians 6:2,3 — Parents have God-given authority and have generally done much good for the children. They deserve to receive respectful treatment, including respectful speech and attitudes. (Cf. Matt. 15:4; Prov. 6:20-23; 15:5; 23:22.)
Children Should Obey Their Parents.
Rebellion is admired and encouraged by many. Acts that parents have disapproved are yet practiced — openly or by deception — because “everybody’s doing it” or for a hundred other excuses. Some accept such conduct as inevitable. But all such is disobedience and rebellion. Ephesians 6:1
Children are commanded by the Lord to obey their parents. (See also Col. 3:20; 2 Tim. 3:1,2).
Luke 2:51 — Jesus set the example of subjection to his parents.
Children should obey all parental instructions unless they are told to do something sinful (Acts 5:29).
The fact that the parents may have made some mistakes or even sinned does not justify disobedience by the children (Rom. 12:17-21; Luke 6:27-35; etc.)
Children Should Care for Elderly Parents.
Elderly people today are often neglected or placed in nursing homes, not because this is really needed for the proper care of the parent, but because the children do not want to be bothered.
1 Timothy 5:4,8,16 — When children are unwilling to care for their elderly parents, they lack appreciation for what their parents did for them, and they also deny the faith. (Cf. Matt. 15:4-6; Ruth 4:13-15; John 19:25-27.)
Making happy homes is not easy, especially in a corrupt society. But God’s plan is always best, and the homes that accomplish the most good are those that learn and do His will.
