Symptoms to Take Notice of in Children

The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…

How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

The Power of Communication Between Animals and Children

Animals and children are the hope of the planet. Their playfulness, joy and innocence bounce back and forth when they play and communicate with each other. Children learn to trust their animal companions. They tell them things that need to be said, and possibly no one else has time to…

The books on the list we haven't read yet

When my son was little, I had a great time picking out books for him. I read him books that I loved when I was little, books that other Moms recommended, and we discovered several new fun series. Some of the books from my childhood had lost their charm, but most of them were like visiting with a very dear friend.…

Now I know what that book was about

This is how I know my Mother reads my blog:

Last month I wrote about our inability to remember the content that we binge - especially books. Last week she sent me a link about how to fix that.…

What was that book about again?

Every week, my son has trouble coming up with a book to use for his reading homework. And this baffled me. I mean, he is always reading. Sometimes, he is re-reading a book that I saw him read the week before. And, I ask him questions about the things that he reads, so I know he is really reading them.…

Who is really paying attention?

My son is sitting at the dinner table with a somewhat vacant stare and not answering my questions about his school day. I am not sure what he is thinking about.…

When Mom gives you advice...

A few weeks ago I wrote about the importance of maintaining bedtime because I am obsessed with sleep. (But in reality, aren't most parents obsessed with sleep?) Then I was reminded that my amazing Mother reads my blog. She texted me to say it would be a good idea to extend my son's bedtime if he spends the…

Reading with your Dad

My son and I are on the couch together. I am on one end reading a book about American mahjong. He is sitting on the other end reading a Goosebumps book. (As an aside: I am completely proud that my son reads the Goosebumps books and doesn't seem scared by them. I was incredibly scared of those kinds of books when I was little. Please don't tell him that.)…

Books lead to snuggling

We are a family of readers. And, although my son has reached an age in which he usually wants to read by himself at night, he does sometimes ask that I read to him. And I am always happy to oblige.…

Reading program in school

My son has fear in reading. The worst part of his school was reading. Well still it is. He said the teachers don't let them play all time, sometime he had to study too, so school isn't 100% good time pass.
Recently his school started a reading program. So, from now on everyday they give some books to the students to pic up according their choice and then take it at home. Every night parent's duty is to sit the kids with their given book and let them read by themselves unless…

Mommy says yes to books

Earlier this week, I wrote about my struggle to incorporate math into the bedtime story routine. (Still working/not working on that one.) Part of that struggle comes from the fact that I have always enjoyed reading more than math. So, I am always on the lookout for a good book deal.…

Mom, can you read me a bedtime word problem?

I know we've talked about math before, but we are going to talk about it again.



When my son goes to bed at night, we read books together. We used to have this deal where he would read to me and then I would read to him, but he reads now as part of his homework time after school, so he gets to relax and…

Turning the pages on books

When we moved into our new home, I swapped all the shelves in the house around, giving my son a few extra sets. The result is that he has a full wall of books. Sometimes I hang out in the doorway of his room without him noticing me, and I watch him select a book from one of his shelves and snuggle up with it. (That's not weird, right?)…

Getting back to a few good books

There is something odd about my life right now.



My BFF at work asked me what I was reading these days, and after thinking about it for a few moments, I had to respond with "nothing."…

Reading for reading's sake

My son is a reader. He loves to visit our secondhand bookshop to get new books, he reads on his own all the time and he tells me that his current chapter books are too easy. (Am I bragging a little here? Yes.)…

What made you stop reading?

My son and I are at the bookstore. He is super excited. He has been dragged around on chores with me all day: Car wash, food shopping, photo pickup, department stores and several other places. As a reward for his super helpful behavior, I told him that I would purchase him the book we are missing from his Magic Tree House series.…

What I'm Currently Reading...

I love books. Real ones. The weight of one in my hands and the crisp sound of the pages ruffling, the mild "new book scent"...it all pleases me. Generally, I have 1-3 books being read at once, other times I have the luxury to plow through one before moving on to another. In either instance, I need to not lose my place but like all design lovers, any ol' bookmark won't…

My Brain Does What When I Read?

 

Reading is remarkable. When you are proficient at reading, it appears so easy. The child scans the text, gains meaning, makes connections between ideas, new concepts and existing knowledge. Examining a new word the proficient reader will sound out each letter to form a new word if necessary, all in a split second. Decoding happens so easily because the sounds, their symbols, syllables, and meaning are recognized. If the child reads the word incorrectly, they quickly reread to make…
