Here are my thoughts on the Secure a Kid Belt. I have seen these at both my local pharmacy as well as on the 4-A-Kid website and had considered several time actually getting one, while never actually getting around to buying one. I was very excited when I got this one although I think my hubby was even more excited than I was. I have 2 boys - aged 2 years old and 4 years old. I placed the belt in the front seat of my car, where the boys sometimes ride on short journeys. The p

When they get dumped by their friend they really do struggle with emotions like feeling confused, and angry, especially if it happens abruptly which tends to happen.

Some of these include: communication and problem-solving skills, the capacity to produce ideas, a more vivid imagination, visualization techniques, and the ability to innovate. By engaging all of their senses, creative activities can be highly beneficial for kids whatever age they s
When you are fast asleep and you get called from your Childs bedroom, ”mommy” you get up with great difficulty and make your way there thinking what is wrong, is everything ok, to get asked the question “mom is it morning yet” and you’re like “no it’s the middle of the night and everyone is fast asleep.” Now feeling rather frustrated you make your way back to your bed.

I was early to pick my son up from school yesterday - for the very first time. I was
early because he had told me that the reason he stubbed his toe at the end of the
previous day was "because you weren't there." That hurt - more than the stubbed
toe. It is one of the most difficult and important things in the world to make the most
