Were Internet Making Us a Bad Parents?

It's the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning, then it's the last thing you do at night. No, it's not brushing your teeth. For many moms, it's checking their e-mail, social networking pages, blogs, message boards or all of the above.

The Internet can be a fun, social and educational outlet, but as we would monitor our kids' Internet use, so should we monitor our own.

Internet addiction can come with some harmful behaviors, such as not eating, showering or taking pills to stay up and online.

Moms are the new Internet junkies! According to Parenting magazine, many young mothers are addicted to blogs, message boards, and virtual-world sites like Second Life. In the most extreme cases, addicts don’t bathe, neglect their children, and use drugs to help them stay up later for more Internet time. Now, not everyone’s problem is bad enough to need professional help, but if you’ve noticed that you’re missing out on time with your baby, or leaving the laundry unwashed a little longer than you should - you might be susceptible to the addiction of the Web.

Motivating a child with rewards!

Did you ever 'bribe' your child when he couldn't finish his meal with a promise of a caddy to get him to finish his meal? Don't you agree a child should be taught to understand finishing his meal is to help them grow up healthily? Therefore, it is their 'duty' to do their job and should not be rewarded. Or, did you reward your child when he achieves better results on his report card? Don't you think that's their 'duty' too? While you may choose to reward your child for high marks, have you ever used it to reward progress, particularly for those children who have difficulty achieving "A"s and "B"s ? We all agree we need to reward our children. However, the extent and the forms of reward are a tricky question.

Reward is a quick-fix solution. It offers instant and safe gratification and is sure to please and satisfy. The returns of reward are certainly quick but are they effective in the child's psychological development? Buying things for children does not teach them values. Even materially rewarding positive behavior is a limited motivating force.

A child who is loved and disciplined is a child who is fortified to survive and succeed in our world

Problems related to poor discipline are on the rise in this country. For many reasons, some of today’s parents have become discipline slackers - perhaps too tired to instill good habits or too busy to stand up to their youngster’s bad behavior. Is it because lenient moms and dads are trying to make up for time they do not have with their children? Are parents reading every possible book on the subject and then following trendy ideas about parenting rather than relying on common sense?

There seems to be a great misunderstanding about those four old-fashioned words, "Because I said so!" Some child raising specialists consider them repressive and potentially damaging. Other experts have convinced parents that the psychologically healthy family is a democracy. This sounds good. In fact, it sounds great!- The only problem is that it is pure fiction! Someone has to have the final say in any family and that someone should be an adult. Turn a family over to a child and that family is in trouble!

I would like to be beutiful!

While beauty is almost as subjective as love, it's something that you can explore and discover in yourself over time.
Define Beauty

Seek beauty around you. How do you define beauty? As you go through your day, try to make note of things and people that strike you as beautiful: the art, the sky, someone's freckles. If you can, write them down. Find your beauty. Try to understand what makes them beautiful to you. They may not be beautiful to others, but that's the reason beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Develop Your Inner Beauty

Recognize the beauty in yourself. Look in the mirror and search for beauty. By now, you've probably noticed that the most beautiful things in life are often subtle and hidden. The same goes for the beauty you hold. Maybe you have smooth, well-proportioned hands, or a flawless forehead, or perfectly-shaped shoulders. Whatever it is, it's yours - reveal it.

Optimism gives us a reason for living!

Today, tt is not easy to be optimistic, but optimism is our most powerful tool to make life more beautiful, healthier and more successful.

The Benefits of Optimism

Superior Health
In a study of 99 Harvard University students, those who were optimists at age 25 were significantly healthier at ages 45 and 60 than those who were pessimists. Other studies have linked a pessimistic explanatory style with higher rates of infectious disease, poor health, and earlier mortality.

Be what you want to be, not what others want to see!

It's quite possibly the most commonly used phrase in the history of advice: Be yourself. But it's such a vague adage. What do they really mean when they tell you to be yourself? And is it really as easy as it sounds?

About Wisdom Tooth !

What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the upper and lower third molars, located at the very back of the mouth. They are called wisdom teeth because usually they come in when a person is between age 17 and 21 or older-old enough to have gained some "wisdom." Wisdom teeth that are healthy and properly positioned do not cause problems.

What causes problems with wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth may break partway through your gums, causing a flap of gum tissue to grow over them where food can become trapped and a gum infection can develop. Wisdom teeth can also come in crooked or facing the wrong direction. Or, if your jaw is not large enough to give them room, wisdom teeth may become impacted and unable to break through your gums. You may have trouble properly cleaning around wisdom teeth because they are so far in the back of your mouth and may be crowded.

Your perfect graduation dress

You are on the cusp of graduating and have found a dress that you really like. Later, though, you may find that the dress does not show off your unique sense of style. By adding certain accessories and pieces, you can create a special look that's yours alone.

·      Decide what you can do to enhance the dress without ruining the material. Obviously, you do not want to dye the dress or sew something on it that you will remove after graduation. Find items and accessories that you can put on and take off the dress easily.

·         Add a sash or belt in a color that complements the dress. You might even consider a sash or belt in one of your school colors. Just wrap it around your waistline, or if your dress has an empire waist, wear it right below your chest. You can also wrap a scarf around your shoulders.

If you are a victim of elderly parents who always abused you

Domestic violence, both physical and psychological been given more visibility, especially violence against women, children and the elderly. Violence against the elderly is widely discussed, there are a number of institutions and organizations where the elderly can get help. Very little is being said about psychological violence against family members of the elderly parents. If you are a victim of such violence, you will find help quite difficult, although this type of harassment can harm your health and destroy your family.
I tried to find articles on this topic on the internet and, after a long search, I found a very small number of posts.
This article deals with the theme of violent elderly parents, so I'll pass it completely.

Putting money in its right place

Is money the purpose behind the choices you make and the values you live by? If so, beware! Money is a good servant but a poor master. Money should be the consequence of how you live your life and not the cause of it.
When Jesus Christ was within a hair's breadth of enlightenment, Satan led him to a mountaintop and offered him dominion over the glittering cities spread below. On the night of the Buddha's enlightenment, Mara offered him the same temptations. Both refused and were enlightened.

Why Should I Learn - How to Learn ?

Have you ever read an informative book, only to later remember just a few main points — if anything at all? The problem might be that you’re using one of the least efficient ways of learning available.
The Cone of Learning
I remember back about 7 years ago when I was taking music lessons at school, there was a poster on the wall that really grabbed my attention. To be fair, it wasn’t difficult for a random object to attract your gaze as our Scottish teacher at the time didn’t have much in the way of keeping you interested. The poster outlined the different ways that we remember things and how different activities increase our chances of remembering something over others.
