Transcript for Vaccinations For Children:
Kristina: Welcome to the Impactful Parent’s Inspire and Learn series, where real parents come on and tell their real stories of inspiration and learning because a wise man learns from his mistakes, but a wiser man learns from other people’s mistakes. Today we’re going to learn from our guest speaker, Jacqueline Kane. Jacqueline is a medical intuitive and mom of two kids. Jacqueline will talk to us today about her experience with getting some vaccinations and then seeing some changes in one of her children.
I want to hear what happened. I hear rumors of these kinds of stories, but nobody really talks about it. I’m happy you are here today because I wanted to get a real parent’s perspective on this particular issue. We all have pressure to get our kids vaccinated, and it’s scary. Please tell us your story.
Jacqueline: When my youngest son was born, I felt he was perfect because my first child didn’t sleep. So when he was more of a sleeper, I was like, oh my god, this is amazing! We’d say, “Okay, it’s time to go off to bed,” and he’d climb up the stairs, no complaints. Nothing. Not until he had his 18-month checkup. After his vaccines, the change was immediate. He was angry more often, and you couldn’t reason with him. There were just moments when he wouldn’t listen. He gave you a hard time more often. And, at first, everybody’s like, “Oh, that’s just how they are.” But I was like no! He had vaccines. The changes were immediately after. But I had to figure it out on my own because 20 years ago, people didn’t even suspect vaccines as causing problems.
As a mom, you know when something’s different. You know when your child is different. Today, I’m so grateful for you and all the people who are now talking about the risks. You can’t tell me that it wasn’t the vaccine I gave him that day that changed him. When you have an inner knowing as a parent, always trust that feeling. Go with your guts, and don’t let anybody tell you differently.
In my journey, I had to dig deep to understand my child. Who was he now? How can I relate to him? How can I parent him so that he is successful? I didn’t want him to go to school and have behavioral problems. I wanted him to have friends and be accepted. Later, I was told that he never felt like he had friends, and that breaks my heart. We had a hard journey. I had to constantly research ways to help him and never give up. The research wasn’t there 20 years ago, and it was very frustrating. Finally, I was grateful when I met a natural path. She did heavy metal testing. I took him to her to get testing and then started removing the heavy metals from his body. Almost immediately, we saw change in him again! People would come up to me and say, “Wow, you can reason with him now. There’s such a shift in him.” I wanted to shout the remedy from the rooftops and help other moms and kids in the same situation. He was so much calmer and saving grace in my life when I found her.
Kristina: I have so many questions already. First of all, it sounds like you had no idea of any risks with vaccinations. Is that true?
Jacqueline: Yes! And there was pressure from the doctors to get all the vaccines. Even now, in our pandemic, there is pressure to get vaccinated. But I learned that children are being born with sensitivities to heavy metals and preservatives in vaccines.
Kristina: There’s definitely pressure for parents to get all the vaccinations. Definitely. The schools want you to have them too.
If you were living your life again today and not 20 years ago, what would you do differently?
Jacqueline: I learned so much since then! I realize that I had to come from a place of love when I interacted with my child. If he was annoyed or frustrated, then he would stop talking to me. I also had to learn that I was carrying around something called ancestral energy that gets passed down. I had to do a lot of my inner work to heal those parts that added to his condition. Lastly, I learned that I had to understand who he is energetical. I had to learn that he did better with positive reinforcement instead of negative reinforcement. I had to learn that he needs time alone to regroup. He’s an introvert, and giving him time and space at home to just recenter and rebalance was important. I shouldn’t force him to go to all the parties. So I think if I had to do it all over again, I would spend more time getting to know my child and who he was sooner. I would stop being so busy because I was working 40 hours a week, and I would give myself more time as a parent to get to know my kids and have fun with them.
Kristina: Yep! That’s parenting! I’m going to rephrase a couple of things that were really important that you said.
As parents, we can hold on to residual feelings and things from our past that we don’t even realize. These feelings, habits, and expectations affect our parenting, and in turn, they affect our children. We need to heal our past first so we can be better parents.
The second thing you said I want to enforce is getting to know our children for who they are and not what we expect them to be. Many times parents assume that their kids are like them. Their kids will like basketball because they liked basketball. Instead, we need to get to know our kids for their unique selves.
Jacqueline: When I was parenting, there was no such thing as a parenting coach, so it is wonderful that people have you as a resource now. We need to seek support in our parenting and not feel like we have to do everything alone. Reach out to a friend, reach out to a coach, and read all the books you can. There is a wealth of information now for you and your family.
Kristina: I love that you’re advocating for finding support! I want to support my parents. I want parents to know that they’re not alone.
What did the doctors say about your son after the vaccinations? Did they diagnose him with anything or deny he changed?
Jacqueline: They kept denying it.
Kristina: Would you say that some of the behaviors that he was exhibiting were like Asperger’s or autism?
Jacqueline: Yeah. I finally had him tested when he was a teen, and he was borderline Asperger’s and autism. I’m happy to say that you wouldn’t even think there’s anything wrong if you met him today. Yes, he’s an introvert, but there are times when he’s very chatty, and he’s like everybody else.
Kristina: What did you do when your son was diagnosed? Do you have any recommendations or tips for parents in a similar situation?
Jacqueline: I believe that these kids really want our attention. They want to be respected. That means giving them attention. I know as a parent, there’s a lot of things to do. It is important not to ignore their need, though. They need you to put things to the side and give them time, respect, and be present in the moment. When you give them that, they calm down and they relax. It’s a totally different child. But when you tell them what to do and why they should do it- then it’s not going to work out well. It’s not the parenting style that they need. They really need to be a partner with you. They need guidance. They don’t want to be parented over; they wanted to be parented with.
Kristina: That’s great advice for any child. So now I’d like to ask you, what makes these children so special?
Jacqueline: I really do think they’re here to teach us something. They’re so empathic and have a caring heart. They’re here to create a brand new world. You’re going to feel their love and compassion.
Kristina: That’s a beautiful sentiment. If people resonated with your story today and would love to reach out to you and ask you more or work with you somehow, how would they do that?
Jacqueline: My website is: https://jacquelinemkane.com. I also have a Facebook group, Healing Circle, by Jacqueline Kane, where I give many tips and tools to women who are in pain and families and moms who need some support.
Kristina: Thank you, Jacqueline.
