    Are Your Children Getting Enough Exercise?

    Was parenting easier forty years ago?

    As a mom in the new millennium, I dream about the idea of parenting in a world where streets are safe and parents can let their children run freely through the neighborhood, their bodies naturally challenged with the exercise of play.

    Instead today, before the slam of the car door fades and the backpack drops on the floor, the TV is switched on and the last few hours of daylight disappear in a haze of video games and over processed snack foods.

    Even the concerned, well-meaning parent can often stand helpless, wondering how to compete against marketing genius and instant gratification. Exercise and carrot sticks have a hard time competing with Xboxes, SpongeBob and potato chips. (more…)


    6 Habits That Can Improve Your Children’s Immunity

    It is normal for your little kids to get fever, cough, or cold once in a while. However, don’t let the virus and bacteria disrupt their development.

    Therefore, boost your kids’ immune system by doing these smart habits:

    1. Breastfeeding

    There’s no doubt that breast milk provides the best and complete nutrition for babies ever since they were born. The yellow colostrums, which come out in the early days after the labor, are proved to have antibodies that can protect babies from many illnesses, such as diarrhea and meningitis.

    2. Consuming Fruits and Veggies

    Fruits and vegetables are great sources of vitamins and minerals, as well as other nutrients to boost your kids’ health. Having them in daily menu will prevent your loved ones from infection. (more…)


    Top 3 Methods – Toddlers and Being Productive

    It almost sounds too good to be true, work-at-home while at the same time taking care of your small children?  While you’ve daydreamed about this, you never really thought it was something you could actually do.

    I started working at home for this very reason. I didn’t want to have to put my baby in daycare. Fortunately, I found a business as a writer where I could do just that. However, not all home businesses are as compatible.

    Here are 3 ways to make working at home with the kids around work for you.

    1) Find a business you will LOVE running and will be possible with the kids around.

    Sure, you might be able to get a job as a telephone order person for LL Bean from home. The only problem is your 5 month old may not agree.

    Your first assignment is to figure out what exactly are your priorities. They could be anywhere from not wanting your kids in a daycare for 12 hours a day to wanting to raise your children yourself.


    Creating Good Sleeping Habits

    New parents have many responsibilities. Close to the top of the list is to develop and nurture good sleep patterns and sleeping habits for their new baby. Newborns need to transition from sleeping with the mother to sleeping alone, but getting your baby to learn to sleep on his own takes some time. However, there are many benefits for both the baby and the parents when this takes place. There are a seemingly endless supply of tips and helpful hints to assist parents with this tricky task. Research and try as many as it takes to find out what works best for your baby and you. Trust your intuition and never give up until you have found that magic combination.

    Toys and Child Devlopment

    Parents who are looking for toys that will enhance children’s development; need look no further.  You have many choices for toys.  If you want to give toys to your children or as gifts that will have an added bonus you will want to choose toys that help the child as they play with them.
