Research Examines the Link Between "Difficult" Child Behavior and iPad Use

Have you ever handed your iPad or phone to your kid when he/she is fussy? What about when they are having a full-blown tantrum? I'm sure many of us have done this. It's probably not our proudest parenting moment, but it happens.



What if this was a common (almost daily) occurrence in your family? What do you think the effect of this would have on your child? These are all questions that researchers are beginning to explore. The the rapid onset of tablets and…

The real reason dishes aren’t done (today)

My husband’s biggest pet peeve with me is that the dishes never seem to get done.  The house can be spotless, the kids are still alive and thriving and yet if there are dishes stacked in the sink then the whole world is going to end.

A while ago I followed the organizational guru The Fly Lady, who’s first step…

Sticking with blocks and dolls

When my son was a baby we had a lot of toys that made noise. Press a button, and something would make a sound and light up. We ended up removing the batteries from a lot of the toys because there was no volume control and they were just too loud. I liked playing with simple toys with my son: Board books, blocks, cars. And that seems to be what he loved playing with the most, too. I remember many afternoons of him lining up long rows of…

Go ahead and talk to me

I keep a few older videos of my son on my phone. I like to watch them and compare what he was like a few years ago to how he is today. One of the items that I notice right away is how he talks. Not necessarily how much he talks (although I notice that, too) but the way he pronounced his words. At the time I took the…

Baby Led Weaning: How to Start Feeding Your Baby Finger Foods

When my first child was just a baby three years ago I was at a loss at how to start giving baby foods. What do you start with? Jars or homemade? How often and how much should I give? This topic is not something that is thoroughly discussed often in doctor’s offices and I found it difficult to find answers when looking online. My doctor just suggested that I could start rice cereals at around four months and start introducing other puree’s slowly from there. So that is exactly what I did. At…

Reviving the art of Appreciation

Kids become not what we want them to but what we are to them. It won't be wrong to say that kids in most cases are just the mirror image of their parents. From the time they are born till the age of six, they have a great sense of observation and their ability to imitate helps them learn and adapt to the world.…

This Love Affair Will Cost You

There is a really good reason why feedback is so critical in the product development process.

MONEY.

Hmm, interesting. Tell me more.

If you go down a path without prospective customer feedback, you run the risk that you will never be able to gain traction in the marketplace. You WILL feel strongly about your product. This is pretty much a guarantee. It's hard not to take criticism personally when you've poured your heart and soul into your idea but develop a thick skin…

Key to Your Child’s Heart

As children gradually grow, they learn to recognize and understand a particular situation and emotions related to it. They learn the difference between anger and frustration and put words to explain what they are feeling inside. Children must learn to recognize what’s going on in their mind and what they feel inside their heart. This proper equilibrium will help children in dealing with different situations.

Where did that skill come from?

Like a lot of parents, I often think about the nature/nurture influences on my son. In addition to his daddy's captivating eyes will he inherit a love of playing music, too? My little guy has already showed some proficiency at telling stories like his Mom, but will that skill…

On Raising a Bilingual Child

THE-BILINGUAL-BABY

Do you feel the intense pressure to make sure that your child knows how to speak his/her mother tongue?

Because I do.

I remember that even when I was pregnant, my family members would continuously remind me about the importance of Olive learning how to speak her native Chinese. I never really thought too much about it – I didn’t think it would be too…

A Picture is worth a thousand words, a story is worth a thousand pictures

I recently read an article in the ‘Pathways to Family Wellness’ where Joseph Chilton Pearce, best selling author on child development, discusses how imagination can save our children from becoming violent.  He explains, “The child without imagination is subject to the immediate sensory environment bombarding them, without any alternatives. If his sensory environment is unpleasant, demeaning, insulting or threatening, his survival drive gives him no choice but to…

Learn Why Books Are Important for Your Baby’s Development?

Babies begin to hear your voice around 16 after they are conceived.  So they begin learning how to listen while inside of the womb.  As, your babies hearing develops they will begin hearing other sounds besides their mommy’s voice and can even recognize those sounds once he or she is born.  A baby is similar to a sponge and takes in everything that he or she hears or sees, even before they are born.  If you don’t want your child to exposed to certain language or behaviors, you should…

How to Treat Mommy in an Emergency

It was Saturday morning, so after a long, stressful week I was looking forward to taking a run around the block. By "run" I mean "mostly walk," but I managed to break into a slow jog a couple of times along the way. (I'm not much of a runner. My theory is that my ancestors were royalty from England, so it is not in my blood to be active or athletic in any way. But I occasionally attempt some sort of physical activity in order to avoid dropping dead of a laziness-induced heart… Continue

For those of you who don't already know, my youngest son, Mason has started speech therapy. Today is his second session and I'm hoping that he'll become comfortable enough to start trusting the therapist and following her directions.
