Guiding Your Child With New Family Members

When you take pains to include all the relatives from your current marriage as well as your children from your previous marriage, you will have one big happy family. You would need to take pains to ensure everyone feels comfortable for each one you must remember comes from a different background with a different thought process. It is important for everyone to respect each other’s privacy and opinion and give them space. Their culture and value systems would have been influenced from the environment that they have grown up with and brought up by their other parent.
No child would be willing to or wanting to accept a step parent in the place of one’s own parent unless of course the bonding with the step parent gets to be very loving and stronger. To a large extent the quality of relationship and acceptance would depend upon the way the child is treated and approached by the step parent too. If there is a natural understanding and empathy in the case of the child, then the relationship with the step parent is likely to be smooth.
The children are further likely to get upset emotionally or resent the arrival of new siblings into the family in due course of time. But then a large part of their reaction could be managed by parents who can learn to handle the situation very maturely and thoughtfully.
The children are likely to often fight and be aggressive towards each other exhibiting jealousy, resentment as well as anger with an underlying resentment of each other and wanting the attention of the parents to oneself.
If you as parents work together and are willing to focus on bringing all children to accept each other as well as get them to understand that they are all loved by you as parents equally and each one is important, then you can build one happy family in no time. These guidelines might come in handy for you:
It is important for each parent to spend quality time alone with each child. Only with one to one communication can you reach out and get the child to communicate with you as well as build the trust and comfort level.
You get a marvelous opportunity to get to know the child better and understand his personality, his likes and dislikes as well as his interests etc. This is the best chance that you get while spending time with him to let him know that you love him.
It is important for you to spend all your free time with the child and do things that he enjoys doing. It helps to get involved with his life and stand by to support his activities as well as interests. When he finds you being there to support and not only to criticize, he will naturally accept you as the parent over a period of time and perhaps call you mom or dad.…

How Important Is Mom?

This morning one of my best friends was doing a fundraiser at our kids’ school which means she spent the whole weekend getting ready and got up this morning really early so everything would be set by the time the kids start arriving to school. She didn’t want her kids to wake up so early so she decided to leave them home with the hubby so he would bring them at a later time. Well that’s how she realized how much she is needed at home.
Even though she left their clothes ready, they wore something else; the little girl naturally had to brush her hair by herself and hey I’m talking about one of the nicest and greatest dads you can ever meet (if you haven’t met my husband first, of course…)
But the point is how ready our spouses are to do everything by themselves when or if we are not there? Especially if there are kids involved. Well mine says that won’t happen, he prefers to be the first one to go; before me he means, because he will never be ready to embark on the ‘do it all mommy adventure’. And I believe it! Yeah, Moms rule!
Moms multitask more at home or outside than Dads. Think about all the things you can accomplish in any given day; our jobs, groceries, dry cleaners, full time drivers to school, kids’ Dr. appointments, extracurricular activities, help them with homework, projects, don’t forget ‘Mommy I need this and that’ and at the same time take care of dinner, laundry, just to mention a few, I bet you can say more than that. Therefore, have you ever tried to swap each other’s daily routine for one day? From the outside it looks like men work extensively and harder than women but when they have to ‘walk in our shoes’… Oh No, no can’t do. As I always say of course there is an exception to every rule but if there is, it will probably be a very rare one.
After all said and done, I guess we are born to be strong, patient, creative, caring, energetic and any other positive adjective you could think of… but at the same time we can’t stop appreciating how good, helpful and supportive our other halves can be.
Thank you to all the great dads, wonderful moms and lovely kids out there that constitutes the perfect happy family!…

Natural Ways To Help Your Baby With Teething

No one has ever said that being a parent is easy. No tip on earth can make this job a smooth one. You can be prepared for some of the trials that may come your way. Learning about the job of parenting will put you on the road to success.

In order to be a good parent, you must not watch every single thing that your child does. This will smother them and only push them further away. If you give them some freedom, they will in turn put more truth into how they are feeling and how they are living their life. This way, the children are less likely to rebel.

Avoid smoking in your home. You may even want to even consider quitting. Secondhand smoke is as damaging as actually smoking. Children who breathe second-hand smoke are more likely to develop asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis or other respiratory issues.

Get a well made twin stroller that fits your life. There are two main types of twin strollers, the side to side and the back to back. Both have benefits that could recommend them for your children. A side by side will allow both babies to see the world in front of them, but as they get a little older it will also allow them to mess with each other. Back to back strollers are more likely to be compatible with car seats so look for what works for you.

Get to know all of the people who are a part of your child’s life. You need to take the time to know your child’s teachers, day care workers, doctors and anyone else that may play a role in their lives. It will benefit you in many ways but it will also benefit your child by you knowing that they are in good hands.

Mom And Baby

Tips That All Pregnant Women Should Follow

Pregnancy is beautiful, bringing forth a child and creating a family. Though it can be tiring and hardships are not uncommon. Still most people will agree – it’s well worth it. Use this article for effective ways to make pregnancy more manageable.

Learning to track your menstrual cycles are important if you are looking to conceive. Knowing when you’re likely to be ovulating will help you by scheduling the best times to get pregnant. Once you are pregnant, the fact that you kept a close schedule of these cycles will allow you to locate the date you would have conceived with near-pinpoint accuracy.

Go ahead and give in to your pregnancy cravings. Doctors aren’t quite sure if cravings are a result of emotional changes or of nutritional deficits in your diet, but not getting the foods you crave can be stressful during a time when you don’t need the added stress. Just be careful that your diet is healthy overall.

Remember that it might take about one year to become pregnant. If you’ve been trying for longer than that, you might want to check with your doctor. They can check you out to find out if there’s a medical reason for you not getting pregnant.

Try not to wear clothing that is too tight when pregnant. This kind of clothing can actually cause your fetus to not get enough oxygen and make you uncomfortable. There are maternity jeans available for pregnant women. Also, when at home, try to wear sweatpants or pajama bottoms with a loose T-shirt.

Try to stay away from caffeinated drinks when you are pregnant. Caffeinated drinks like coffee, tea and soda can cause your blood pressure to become elevated, which can lead to serious health problems for both you and your fetus. There are a variety of different decaffeinated versions of soda, tea, and coffee.

If you have felt your baby moving around in your stomach, and then the movement stops for a few days, you should visit your doctor. Although this may mean nothing, there could be a problem with the baby that your doctor can help fix if taken care of in time.

Baby-Sitting

It is important to learn how to take care of a newborn. Baby-sitting other people’s toddlers and newborns is a great way to learn this experience. Caring for other people’s newborns not only helps make some money on the side, but also gives you the life skills you need to take care of your own child.

Mom And Baby

Exercising in pregnancy is good for mom and baby. The benefits include decreased risk for gestational diabetes, less complaints of constipation and back pain and a quicker recovery from birth for mom. Stop exercising and see your doctor if you have signs, such as shortness of breath, dizziness, fluid leaking, uterine contractions or vaginal bleeding.

No matter who is pregnant, be it you or someone you love, both of your lives are impacted by a pregnancy. This will be the start of a fantastic journey, so it’s important to learn all you can about it. Don’t forget about these tips when you want to better your pregnancy.…
