Why Is It Important To Have A Family Lawyer?

Most of us make decisions by just looking at what we have at the moment we need to decide. We never think about what could happen in the future or if ever we do, we imagine it to be how we want things to happen. But the real thing is that, we can never really tell. Today, you may feel like you have made the best decision in your life by getting married and planning to have a baby. But in a few years from now, you might say that you made the worst decision in your life by getting married and that you want a divorce. A lot of problems may come out of that decision like who gets to have this property and that, who gets custody for your child and what rights their grandparents may have, etc. Because of these, it is very important for every family to have a family lawyer to watch every member as they establish a stronger family relationship.
Whether there is an existing problem in the family or none, it is very important that you have a family lawyer. A family lawyer will be able to help you in making decisions about your properties and how to protect them. If in case you decide to get into second marriage and you have a child, you definitely would not want your child’s future to be at risk in case the second marriage you are in does not work. Your lawyer would be able to secure your future and your child’s by arranging a prenuptial agreement.
Your family lawyer can also help you get a guaranteed support for your child from your previous partner so you would not have to take all the responsibilities alone. Most of the time, grandparents tend to meddle with the family especially in cases of divorce. There are even children who end up living with their grandparents instead and not given the opportunity to meet their real parents. Even if you have not succeeded in keeping your marriage it does not mean that you would also not succeed as a parent. You have all the right to your child and his or her grandparents would not have as much rights as yours. Your family lawyer can make that clear to them and would be able to make arrangements that would be in favor of everybody.
In case you and your husband do not have a child and you plan to adopt one, a family lawyer can help you with that. He can help you work on the necessary documents to make the child your own. That way, you would not have to fear about losing him or her after some time.
If there is also anyone in the house who may be physically or emotionally abusive, you can protect the other members of the family with a restraining order or a protection from abuse order and your family lawyer can help you with that.
There could still be so many different reasons that a family lawyer is important. But whatever they are, you should make sure to get a family lawyer either to resolve an existing problem or to prevent a problem. Your family is an important part of your life that you have emotionally, financially and spiritually invested so much in-it deserves protection all the time.…

Easy Feng Shui – Relationship Areas – Happy Family Area

The Happy Family area is about people in your life that feel like family as well as your biological family. Standing in the middle front of your home it is located on the left in the middle between Self Cultivation and Knowledge and the Prosperity corner. The element is wood and the color is green. This area represents safety and security in life, a strong foundation. This is an area that can hold the energetic intention to forgive and be at peace with family and friends.
Family energy and agreements can be some of the most difficult to navigates. When we incarnate we choose our parents and the family we are born into for our soul’s evolution. We pick the place where we can learn the most to fulfill our soul’s purpose. Sometimes we have wonderful families and sometimes we don’t.
The Happy Family area is where we can make an energetic intention to bless, forgive and release past family energy so that we can be empowered. When we forgive someone we do it for ourselves, for our freedom and happiness it has nothing to do with the other person. It is also a prosperity area for day to day money, money to pay the bills which contributes to feeling secure.
Healthy plants are great enhancements in this area. Place photos of family in wooden frames in this area. Use representations of water and the color black. Water feeds wood in the creative cycle.
My dining room is in the Happy Family area. I have an old dining room set with a large buffet. I have a green velvet scarf on the buffet with glass and crystal pieces on it and a mirror behind it. Glass and crystal that reflects light is wonderful for moving chi and is a symbol for water. The shape of water is undulating so light dancing through glass and crystal is perfect for the element of water. I also have a window seat that is full of pictures of family and plants. The whole feeling of this area is light.
Things to avoid in the Happy Family area are metal objects, round objects and the color white. Metal chops wood in the destructive cycle. So if you can’t move out some of the above from your family area add the color red or candles or even better, red candles. This represents fire which melts metal.
All of life is the relationship that begins with us as individuals remembering that we are the embodiment of the Divine. When we know that we lack nothing and are worthy of everything we desire we start to value ourselves. Creating a supportive environment through the practice of Feng Shui further affirms that value. If we nurture the relationship we have with ourselves through self love, forgiveness and validation we bring peace to our lives. That peace then extends to those closest to us and radiates out from there to encompass our fellow man and our planet. We are all one and healing begins at home.
Namaste’…

Get Fit With Your Family and Save the Planet

There are many way to get fit, but what if I told you about one where you would be outside in the fresh air and you could take your child with you and at the same time you could be helping save the planet.
Yes there is a way to do all of this at the same time and its just perfect for stay at home mums or dads who work outside the home and don’t get to spend much time with their children. Even Grandmas and grand dads can get in on this one and get fitter at the same time.
What I am talking about is taking up biking. You may be wondering how on earth you can take your child or children with you and thats where the bicycle child trailer comes in. This is such a huge trend right now and there are lots of companies that manufacture these wonderful trailers. If you don’t have a child you can choose to take you pet with you instead, as they have trailers for them as well.
Of course, the older the child is, the more extra weight you will have to pull and that will help with your fitness levels even more. Imagine a bight sunny weekend day and you and your wife are out on your bikes with your children in their trailer or trailers seeing the sights, not using any fuel except your own body strength and getting fitter at the same time. A much healthier and family oriented option then going to the gym on your own leaving Mom at home with the kids on the weekend.
Kids just love these trailers, just make sure that you take a drink and some snacks for them and maybe some books as well. You could bike to a park then let the kids out for some playtime or even a picnic, then go visit some friends and then home again.
Another idea would be to bike to the nearest camping ground and then spend the night in a tent. This would be a great adventure for the whole family and is sure to be remembered for a lifetime.
This way you will end up with a happy family, who spends time together in the great outdoors.…

Training Toilet Can Really Be A Beautiful Experience For Both The Mother And Child

Training toilet or toilet training or just using the potty is something which every child has to go through in his or her life. There is simply no escaping this at all. A child at some point in his or her has to learn how to use the toilet for doing his or her potty. But many child educators, doctors and even child specialists differ in their opinion as to when is the correct age for a child to be toilet trained.

It all depends entirely on when the mother ad child are both ready for this big step. Most toddlers are ready to be toilet trained from the age of 18 months and 24 months. Some children can be trained not to wet their napkins or diapers by toilet training them from an early age of even 6 months. All the mother has to do is take the baby to the toilet every hour after the baby has taken fluids and help the baby to ease itself by making a hissing sound or allowing the water in the tap to run.

But it is the bigger training toilet that is more difficult for most children as they are simply afraid of sitting on potty chairs or on toilet seats in the bathrooms. These children have to be slowly allowed to play with potty chairs first and made to sit on the chairs with their clothes on. After a few days when they are more or less comfortable to climbing on to the potty chairs and sitting on them make sure that you have removed their clothes.

They will then sit on the potty and do it while you play with them or hand over a small toy for them to play with or you could even sit by their sides to read a book. What children need is reassurance that they are not alone while they do their potty on a potty chair or in the toilet.

You will know that kids want to do their toilet when you find them suddenly stopping all their activities and becoming quiet suddenly with a serious look on their face. Now you should gently help them to sit on the potty chair and wait patiently till the finish. Take them along when you take the potty and its contents to be flushed in the toilet. Let them do the flushing. This will instil a lot of confidence in them and they will have no fears to be toilet trained either.

You can buy the special toilet seats for children, which is available in the market and install the same on the regular toilet seat. And while the child is doing his toilet you also wait in the toilet and reassure the child that there is nothing to fear at all.

Reward your child every time he or she uses the toilet as this will truly help them to be more confident. Encourage them regularly by cheering them once the potty training is over. Training toilet can really be a beautiful experience for both the mother and child.…

How To Keep Your Wits When Traveling With Kids

Flying with children of any age can be a daunting necessity whether you are a seasoned traveler or you are flying for the first time. By reviewing some basic travel tips and strategies, you will navigate air travel with infants, toddlers or children with ease and arrive at your destination with your sanity in tact. It’s all about having the right supplies when traveling with kids.

We’ve polled seasoned flyers who have ‘been there-done that’ when it comes to flying with kids and have compiled a series of tips that help you preparing for your flight, getting through the airport , and to your destination as efficient as possible. Read on.

Advice to parents flying with children

Be calm. Travel with kids is typically much more stressful for parents than it is for the children! So, the bottom line here is to keep your wits about you. Your kid(s) may scream on the airplane or kick the seat in front of them. People might stare – especially those without children or business people trying to work. Keep in mind that you paid your fare and the last time we checked the airlines did not make any rules that prohibit children on planes.

Politely ignore these people and breathe. It is always nice when you are surrounded by other parents with or without their children. They understand what you are going through and sometimes are willing to lend a hand. Don’t be afraid to ask! If you have quiet moments (if you can get your children to sleep), use this time to read a few pages of your favorite magazine or watch a movie. Relax, you will get through it in flying colors.

Be safe. There is nothing more important. The key to safety during air travel with kids is proper restraints during takeoff, landings, and during turbulence. Be sure to follow the instructions of the flight crew and adhere to the seat belt signs at all times. Take time to read the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) brochure on child safety while flying. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) brochure on child safety while flying.

Be prepared. The most important bag you will pack when flying with infants, toddlers or kids is your carry-on. You definitely want to have the right supplies when traveling with kids. Be sure to read the section tips for packing your carry-on when traveling with children. It will make flying with kids a much more pleasant experience.

Stress Does Not Have to Kill You

Stress Does Not Have To Ruin Our Lives!
In this life there are three things we can always expect to do… 1) Eat 2) Sleep 3) Pay taxes! The choices we make in life have a great impact over how we live our lives. Emotional stress can take a toll on our finances, our social lives, and over physical well being. Stress can and will Kill You eventually, but that is only if you allow it to! You have to give stress permission to Kill You, we do this by HOLDING ON TO IT!
Lets look at a common scenario for example:
Your husbands ship allows him to come home not soon after you got to work this morning. He calls you with his wonderful news as you are getting settled in your cubicle! Trying not feel disgusted (with a side order of envy) you ask him just to pick up the house (nothing MAJOR!) and you begin your day. After the normal hustle and bustle of the nine to five rat race, lets fast forward, its been a typical work day (Draining) you have fought your way through traffic, and you finally make it home.
With rose colored glasses, it would be nice if dinner was cooked, the dishes were washed, a load of laundry or two was done, kids homework was done, and all you have to do is eat! This would mean you could unwind, eat slowly, take a leisure bath or shower and then pick up a good book. Your husband loves you and knows how hard you work so this is not a task that is asking too too much! You yourself do it for him all the time!
walk in your house and the first thing that grasps your attention are the toys on the floor, closed book bags and coats strewn all over! Your maternal sixth sense tells you no homework is done! And to top it off your husband is playing World of Warcraft, (which you can tell by his attire and the things around him, means he has been playing since he got home this morning) as the Chihuahua chews the tassels off your couch pillows. Your feet begin to slide in your heels as you can feel your blood beginning to boil. STOP RIGHT THERE!
Normally you would be fuming mad, slam your stuff down and just begin cooking, multitasking as always, you begin helping the kids with their home work, and the game of ignoring your husband begins. Its your way of letting him know that you are beyond disgusted with him. Its almost routine, you can expect it, your chest begins to hurt, and you get the normal feeling of being let down.
You instinctively reach in your closet for pain relievers. You pop several migraine relievers and keep huffing your disgust out loud, but what changes? NOTHING! Everything is still the same because the person internalizing your disgust is YOU! The person allowing the surrounding environment to give them a tension headache is YOU. The person allowing the knots to build in their neck and shoulders is YOU. If you look dog still thinks tassels are cool. The kids are just doing what they are allowed to do until order is set, and your husband is unwinding in his own way. SO I ask again why are you allowing a situation to KILL YOU? DON’T!
Lets have a DO OVER!
We know YOUR USUAL WAY DOES NOT WHY KEEP DOING IT? He is not stressing, his character in WOW can be resurrected, so your yelling will not cause him to miss a beat! The only person who will be stressed out is you! As we set into a routine of internalizing stress and anger and it builds up, it shortens OUR LIFE EXPECTANCY RATE. WE ARE KILLING OURSELVES! CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES CAREFULLY! And despite whatever you may see on TV, once that monitor stops beating, recitation attempts are given, the doctor calls the time and pronounces you that is all she wrote! Unlike on the stories McDreamy will not walk into the Er, suddenly realize he was the cause of your stress, say something sappy, begin to cry, heroically thump you in the chest and your heart just starts beating again.
Your Health and Your WELL BEING are TOP PRIORITY! REMIND YOURSELF I WILL NOT STRESS MYSELF TO DEATH.
Choose your battles carefully, is this situation going to kill you? Will your life end if you don’t yell? Who is going to benefit from your yelling and screaming? No one thus, its a tactic that must get scratched from our to do list. It serves no purpose other than allowing neighbors to know of dysfunction.
Lets Retry This:
Close the door! Walk back down the stairs and …
