I've long believed in the fact that the Full Moon affects the behaviour of small children. I remember talking to No1 Boy's teachers, about 6 years ago now, and saying that I was sure his behaviour was cyclical. At that point I hadn't worked out that his behaviour was directly related to the moon. I also remember them asking me if it wasn't my responses that were cyclical! Fair enough, but no! I eventually twigged that his behaviour got worse a couple of days before the full moon then got better (relatively speaking) when the full moon had passed (No2 Boy was unaffected, but No3 Boy is, not to the same extent, but again the behaviour is noticeably worse for a couple of days.). I was reminded of this this morning when The Child had a melt down, was sent to his room to "CHILL OUT!!" then came out, apologised and when asked what was wrong sobbed "I don't know!". Sure enough tonight is a Full Moon, in fact the closest the moon has been to the earth in nearly 20 years.
I find the subject quite fascinating. I'm interested in the idea of Lunar Gardening (not that I'm much of a gardener!), even Lunar hairdressing! With all the natural activity going on in the world just now, there are a fair few Doomsayers out there predicting the End of the World. According to some, this particular Full Moon could cause more earthquakes, floods etc. Thankfully the Experts think not. Perhaps some slightly higher tides and some crazy children though!
I'd love to hear other people's theories...
