Attention Tantrums

When it comes to attention temper tantrums, your response will have a tremendous impact. In fact, your responses will either squelch or fuel your child’s attention temper tantrums. Your child needs to learn that temper tantrums will not get her what she wishes, and that she will need to adopt appropriate behavior.


Stand Your Ground

You may be determined to stand your ground, but there are times when your resolve may waver. You may be particularly challenged when you are tired, frustrated, stressed, or feeling guilty. Unfortunately, once you give in, all of the other times that you did not will be forgotten by your child. Consistency is crucial.

There are many reasons why you should not give in. First and foremost, you are rewarding your child for having a tantrum. When you give in, you give up power and authority. This may be upsetting to the child who counts on you for boundaries and guidance. You are not helping your child learn. When you give, you take away the opportunity for your child to learn to manage her frustration independently. Sooner or later, you will not be there to provide what your child wants or to jump in to solve her problem. It may sound harsh, but your child doesn’t need to have experience in not getting her own way so she knows how to deal with it.

Four Easy Ways to Childproof Your Windows

Dangling window blind cords can be dangerous for children. Tie them up out of a child’s reach or look for a free fix-it-kit online.

Install window guards or safety stops on windows when there are children in the house. These items help to ensure that a child can not fall or climb out an open window. For windows on the sixth floor and below, choose guards that can be removed easily in case of emergency. On windows above the sixth floor, install window stops so the windows open no more than 4 inches.

Always closely supervise children around windows.

Never place a child’s crib, playpen, or bed near a widow.

Proper Treatment of the Eye is Important

The eye zone is the most sensitive and fragile area of the face and the super-thin skin is subject to a great deal of stress. The eyes are the first place to show tiredness and fatigue is always more evident in this area of the face. Sometimes the most obvious things, like getting more rest and consciously putting your batteries on change following a period of extra stress are the simplest and most effective ways to make yourself look and feel 100 per cent better. However, to keep signs of aging a bay, it is essential to take the time to care for your eyes on a daily basis.

Do remove eye make-up as gently as possible. A remover that contains cornflower water will soothe and moisturize the delicate skin. Soak a cotton-wool pad and hold it onto the eye and lashes, with your eyes closed, for about 30 seconds. This will help dissolve the mascara and so prevent you from rubbing the skin. Gently remove the make-up by sweeping the pad outwards on the top lids and then in towards the corner of the eye to clean the lower lids. Remember that long-lasting make-up requires a special-formula remover for the job. Anyway, if you are looking for eye wrinkle remover or concealer, be sure that it safe for your skin.

Holiday is Over

I am glad that I can now start saving a little because the holiday is over, and I guess no more buying gifts for this month. However, next month is my son’s prom, so I expected it already that I have to find the best suit for him. I am sure there will be a program again, and maybe he will sing and play with his guitar once more on stage. I just don’t know if he still needs something for his guitar, because I remember he mentioned about gator, but I just ignored it. Anyway, the prom will be next month, so I still have time to find out if he needs something for his guitar.

Highchair Safety and Stroller Safety

A baby is usually ready for a highchair around the age of five months, when she can sit up with support. Make sure that her highchair has a wide base for stability and a tray that locks securely. Always use a safety belt to secure your baby in her highchair and never leave her unattended. The highchair should not be near hazards such as stoves, shelves, tables, counters, windows and dangling cords from blinds or drapes.

Stroller Safety

Select a stroller with a wide wheel base for stability and check to make sure it will not tip over when your baby leans forward or backwards or is in a relaxing position. Check latches and brakes for safety.

Joyful and Confident Parenting

Being a parent will probably be the most demanding, exhilarating, rewarding and important challenge of our lives. It is a lifelong commitment that is ever-changing and especially exciting today as new research tells us more and more about a baby’s emotional and intellectual development. But your baby doesn’t come with an instruction manual. Instead, you as a parent are expected to know intuitively what is best for your child. It’s true, there is no one in the world who will know your child better than you do. But we can all use a little help and guidance. The important things is to take the role of parenting from back-of-mind consciousness to front-of-mind to parent in a self-conscious way.

My Christmas Lists

It’s December now which means, it’s time to make a list for gifts to our love ones. My youngest son wants to have an acoustic guitar. My niece wants a new dress for her Barbie Doll, while the little nephew wants a triple drum. Oh boy, those things are not cheap, especially the guitar of my son. But of course, as a Santa on Christmas Eve, I will give what they want for Christmas.

I actually ask them what they want for Christmas, because I don’t like the idea of buying things and when they open their gifts, they are not happy with it because they don’t like it. So, it would be wiser if I know what to buy for them. Anyhow, do you know where to buy oboes? Yes, I found it online also. Our neighbor was looking for this, and he asks a favor from me to look on the World Wide Web because he has no computer. He will for sure be happy for this because as of the moment, it offers a good discount.
