Things You Should Know About Autism

Schemas are grouped pieces of information the brain can access quickly to understand a specific event or situation. For example, we may have a preconceived idea of what someone is like simply by the way they dress, how they talk or where they come from. A schema that may dictate to us that a person will be very nice because we already have an understanding that people who we group into the same category are nice too. Chances are this person will be nice also.

Schemas work on a variety of levels. Our brains group together a series of data which it calls upon to understand an environment, ourselves as people and events. For example, you will know that when you go to a restaurant, you wait to be seated at a table, ask for the menu, choose your meal and your drinks and so on. The reason why you know this information about restaurants is because your brain has a schema that tells it how to behave.

We have different schemas which provide our brain with different

Step Modeling For Your Kids

Kid models are the most adorable bunch but they are easily the toughest models for photographers and agencies to handle. Modeling definitely takes a toll on the kids themselves as well. To ease that process, we have compiled the top five tips on kids modeling that we believe should be strongly adhered to.

1. Choose the right agency

Choosing the right agency takes the number one priority on the journey to becoming a kid model. The right agency is not one that is just registered but is reputable and credible. Parents/ guardians should be clear on how their child will be treated and what the future growth of their kid will look like. Any credible modeling agency would set up a good website and be very active both on online and offline platforms to market their models. As such, you will be able to see the photo shoots and past projects done by kids, and make a well-informed decision on whether to join the agency.

Most importantly, never fall prey to scams. Setting your kid up with the wrong agency can pose many risks

Tips To Make Your Kids Safe

When it comes to kids’, parents are always proactive about their protection, especially when leaving them alone at home. But, the question is what all should they do to ensure their child’s safety when they are not around?

While there are lots of things that they can do, however, the most important one is to teach them some significant security tips. Basically, it is the responsibility of parents to educate their kids about some safe keeping ideas which can come in handy whether or not they are with their juniors. So, following are the Home Security Tips that you must share with your little ones:

1) Restrict the Social Media Postings:

As nowadays everyone is socially active, including young ones, thus, it becomes imperative to make them understand that they have to be careful while sharing information on social channels as this might lead to burglary and other undesirable incidents. Share with them the situations and convey them the consequences. Also, instruct them not to share personal information online like vacation plans or trips (If they are very keen, then ask them to post

Do Not Tell About These To Your Children

Do they mean to keep these things secret, or does it just happen? Does it have to do with protecting themselves, their pride or shame, as the case may be? And if you are a parent, what do you think about sharing these information with your grown-up children? Maybe it is just not necessary. But won’t some children like to know?

Well, different persons will surely have different views to the matter. But my point is, here are things parents don’t get to tell their children. In most cases, the children discover these things from other sources, or after the death of one or both of their parents. As for whether or not it would be better if a child was told, everyone will have to decide for themselves.

Here’s my list.

1. How much they earn

You either snoop that out or you live with a guess work. Most parents will hardly share information on how much they are earning by themselves.

2. How much they are worth

If any of your parents makes it to Forbes’ list, or any of those, then you’d know it from there for the first time. Or wait till the will is read.

3. How much they owe

All About Living With Creative Child

When my youngest child was small she was watching a nature programme when she exclaimed with utter delight that there were glow-in-the-dark monkeys! The rest of the family took a moment before realising what she was seeing. David Attenborough was filming in the jungle at night using a special night vision camera which made the monkeys glow green. We laughed at her for a while but then it became such a charming idea that there might be monkeys in the jungle somewhere on Earth that glow in the dark. The possibility was real enough as there are other glowing creatures on the planet. We kept this idea going as we discussed the benefits of being able to glow in the dark, to hide in trees and frighten the parrots. Although it was nonsense, fostering this level of creative thought is a great skills to learn. If we are to foster creativity in children we need to work through their imaginations and ideas to see if they can develop the ideas. You might consider whether the monkeys can be seen in the day, how do they glow? Is it down to something that they eat? The process of thinking up more

Benefit Of Preschooler

So I love the environment and being outdoors. But I know for sure everyone is not big on the great outdoors. However, in light of the very best season of the year FALL/AUTUMN, I think it’s an awesome time to be outdoors and get some experience with some Green parenting skills.

So Fall/Autumn is a great time to be outdoors because you need no sunscreen. It’s never that hot and if it gets a little chilly you can throw on a cute sweater and keep going and the meltdowns are never as bad from those desert heat tantrums that happen in the Summer.

The visuals of fall also bring with it some cool and calming colors that along with the food (Vitamin A infused) are great for your health; particularly your eyes and your skin!

For us, green parenting relates to getting outside with the preschoolers in school and at home. It is essential, and to keep it interesting here are some things we like to do

Gardening

  • Plant some winter veggies like lettuce (Winter/Lambs); sugar snap peas; broad beans; rainbow carrots
  • These are a few interesting ones that you can use in the lunches you still have to make for these tricky kids and in

Guide To Use Diapers When Travelling

Contrary to common belief, traveling with cloth diapers isn’t that complicated. In fact, there are many benefits of choosing the cloth way.

• The change in environment can irritate your baby and by choosing disposables, something which she isn’t comfortable in, can really irk the baby’s mood (and result in not-so-much amazing trip)

• Plus, if your baby is used to cloth diapers from the beginning, the sudden change can cause irritation and rashes.

• Most of us parents choose reusable diapers for its affordability. And while traveling, the cost of buying disposables can get exorbitant. So, if you want to stick with cheaper options, pack your reusable diapers with you.

• Choosing cloth will soothe your eco-conscious mind, even if it’s a bit of work.

Using cloth diapers while on a vacation can be a simple, easy process. Here are some useful tips to help you sail through your cloth diapering journey while on the go.

Understand your Traveling Plan

Before you begin thinking about reusable diapers, you need to understand the situation you will be in. How many days is the trip for? Are you traveling by car or plane? Will you have laundering options, or you need to use your hotel bathroom? If

How To Get Rid Childish Things

The numbers don’t lie. That is the first lesson we learn in the business world fresh out of college. Understanding the metrics of any profession is an absolute must before experiencing any measure of success. Grasping the magnitude of the autism epidemic is no different, as millions of families are coping with the wrath of this disorder. Since the 1990’s we have followed the destructive path autism has inflicted on families around the world. The numbers have increased significantly since then, but care and treatment options remain limited. Moreover, we are as perplexed today in many areas related to autism spectrum disorders as we were some 30 years ago. That’s not to minimize the progress made in the areas of medical research and therapeutic intervention resulting in improvements for many. Nor is this a plea to eliminate early intervention assessments which have proven vital to long term success. This is, however, a declaration based on experience and observation that the time has come for us to end neglecting adults with autism.

The early statistics from the 1990’s has yielded an entire generation of now young adults coming of age in a world that seems unsure about their presence. No longer

Tips To Help Your Kids About Their Self Worth

It’s not easy to be a parent these days.

The real job of a parent will always be to raise happy, peaceful and awakened children. And it’s some of the most important work we can do on the planet.

But, how do we do this in today’s chaotic world? How do we do this when everywhere we look there is some new crisis creeping into our world? Poverty. Unemployment. Violence. Radical terrorists. Political unrest. Any way look it’s an uncertain world. And the problem with uncertainty is that it can easily turn into fear, which will always lead to unhappiness and inner turmoil.

However, there is hope. In fact, I have never been more hopeful in all my life. I have seen too many children, from all across the world, come sweeping into my arms, telling me how much they love my workshops, and how much they love learning to clean, to say thank you, and to let go. More than ever, children are eager to know who they are, where they fit into the world, and what their mission will be.

They desperately want to live beyond the illusion of the world. In other words, our children are sponges who are ready

How To Deal Bullying

This is an important time to step up and be an advocate for your child, they are going to require your absolute support during this stressful period. The school will often ask the victim if they did anything to add to the situation, your child will be cross-examined, usually by the school principal. The school wants to get the situation resolved quickly and to get someone to apologize to the other party, so everybody can move on. Your child needs to be strong as they retell, and relive, what was done to him by the bully.

Record Everything that Happened

Bullies are smart enough to terrorize their victims away from teachers, making catching bullies in the act a difficult task. Help the school out by recording everything that occurred, the date, the time it happened, where in the school the incident occurred. This can be can challenge as l youngsters frequently don’t completely grasp what has happened, or they might not have seen the whole circumstance, just a bit of the bullying episode. Parents will have to through what happened with their child to record everything accurately. An option some parents have used to videotape the bully, and then send the

Media Environment For Your Kids

Portable screens can seem like a godsend to parents. Give the kids a “hit” of your iPhone and bam! The whining, the crying, the tantrums are instantly over. Built-in TVs and iPads seem to have resolved car rides from hell. With a portable screen handy, there’s no need to suffer the nasty glares of annoyed shoppers wondering why we can’t control our kids. Ah, the peace screens can bring! Bliss. Total bliss! And yet, we know that misuse of electronic media devices is hurting our children.

I’m not here to preach for the elimination of electronic media devices. Screens, in and of themselves, are not bad. I’m the first to admit that I don’t think I could live without them. They have become my GPS, my encyclopedia, my research assistant, my editor, my accountant, my recording studio, my DJ, and even my meditation buddy. They have made my life so much easier. However, I know that I need to make a conscious effort to unplug, and it’s not easy.

Kids, just like their parents, can benefit from using screens. Among other things, they have become a convenient source of information to do research for homework and school projects. Now kids can

All About Mindful Parenting

Mindfulness and meditation have proven beneficial for both parents and children. More and more studies are uncovering the short- and long-term benefits of incorporating mindful parenting practices into families’ lives (1).

Meditation and mindfulness are not mere techniques. They are states of being that bring less suffering, more presence, and peace into one’s life. Once a person has experienced the benefits of these practices and the ways in which they permeate our daily life and being, there is no going back. Mindfulness and meditation practices have a positive impact not only on the practitioner but also the people that surround this individual, including our children.

A Google search offers this simple definition of mindfulness: “A mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.” Renowned meditation teacher John Kabat-Zinn also emphasizes the importance of noticing “nonjudgmentally” (2) because suffering is caused by the judgments we place on our perceptions.

Individuals who have chosen to apply these practices to their parenting have seen improvements in their own lives and the lives of their children. If you are not convinced of the value of these practices and wonder if they are just

Tips To Become Ideal Parents

Parenting is difficult. But the most ideal people are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths because these persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.

As parents we would never wish ill on our children. In fact, the mere idea of their suffering can make us break out in a cold sweat. We work hard day in and day out to provide a safe, stable environment, and we attempt to give them as many opportunities as we can possibly find. We want our children to live in a beautiful, cheerful world of smiles and splendor. Our love is unconditional and deep. We can watch them sleep and feel our hearts melt. God has given us a great blessing with our children, and we do our best to cherish that blessing with every fiber of our beings.

Every one of us encountered trials and tribulations; unforeseen problems or consequences that may give us pause. Not one of us is exempt from this hard reality. We would not wish for a new cross or hardship

Why Obedience Is Important

Disobedience can have a variety of causes. At times, it is due to unreasonable parental expectations.The defiance and laziness of unbelieving parents I can understand. I have biblical categories of the behavior of the spiritually blind. But the neglect of Christian parents perplexes me. What is behind the failure to require and receive obedience? I’m not sure. As parents, the first step toward helping our child change his/her behavior is to know or determine the reasons behind his/her frustrations.

Why don’t we use reverse psychology? We can help them through positive reinforcement. Because I was so happy with what he did, I kissed him and said, “Very good. I love you son.” By doing this, he was also very happy that he’d like to impress me more by showing his grades aside from doing household chores and he’s only 10 years old. Imagine that? From there I realized that these positive efforts will always be more successful than punishment.The key is early identification and treatment. It’s funny how that works isn’t it? Allow me to enumerate the reasons behind our children’s disobedience.

1. We are giving them too many chances. Mean what you say and say what you mean. EXPECT obedience

Tricks For Making Your Kids Responsible

Parents often confuse obedience with responsibility. Over time, most parents want children to accept ownership for a task or chore – the children do it because it needs to be done and accept that it is their obligation to do it. Over time, they may even initiate doing a task “because it needs to be done” – not because they are being told to do it. This attitude would be called responsibility. But allowing a child to “do it his way” will encourage a feeling of pride in accomplishment and foster a sense of responsibility.

Finding the balance between over-managing and under-parenting is an art. If you have ever wondered if you are being either too strict or too lenient, or if you are giving your children enough love, then you have stumbled upon considerations about the two important roles that parents have. Each has a part in helping your children become responsible.

You teach your children to be appreciative for what they have. Children need their parents to carry out both roles; healthy parenting occurs when children are raised in a home in which there is unconditional love along with clear boundaries, limits, rules and consequences.

Children feel capable when they

All About Brain Development For Your Baby

Some individuals might find it very interesting or challenging to interact with infants since they cannot do much yet. But if you are more focused on ensuring that they will develop optimally as well as secure a huge advantage in life, there are indeed a lot of activities that you can and must do with them.

Some find these activities very enjoyable since it is like you have a very dedicated audience all the time; however, one excellent benefit that can be obtained from these activities is how they can greatly support brain development in infants.

Activities You Can Do With Your Child

Reading Stories – When you’re reading to your child even before he was born, then you need to do so even more now that he can see and feel you. And as you read stories, you must show him the very colourful pictures in the books. Though his interest might not last long, you can trust that exposure will have an impact on the memory of your child.

Making Music – You can use the items your child normally uses like his spoon, toys and bowl to make music. This will help you in introducing the idea that there are things

Parenting With Teenagers

When it comes to raising a kid every parent wants to be the best parent. Many of them wonder if they are giving the right environment for the physical and behavioral growth of their kids. The reality is; most parents do not remain the best parents or at least good parents.

How do you know if you are good parents for your children? Is there any easy way to understand if your parenting styles are appropriate? A BIG question with very few answers.

There aren’t any specific rules or guidelines for parenting. Parenting is, in fact, the interpersonal relationship between parents and children. This Relationship is very personal and what works between few parents and children may not be the same for certain parents and children. There are several aspects to consider when deciding how children should be raised and what approach parents need to adapt to grow children in the best way. However behavioral experts suggest few general aspects and approaches that are generally regarded as elements of good parenting and being good parents for children.

Expressing love and affection is the most important way to be good parents. Many parents say they love their children more than any parent does,

Things You Should Consider When Become Parent

When I became a parent, I tried so very hard to be the best parent I could be. Sometimes I was great and other times was riddled with guilt and shame for the way I parented.

What I realized, but not until years later, was I constantly parented from my place of hurt. My childhood wounds. Kids will trigger these wounds and the behaviour that comes out of us parents is sometimes inexcusable.

Being in a place where you are driven by your demons, makes you very selfish. Whatever happens, you make it about you. Of course it doesn’t feel like that. You are in self- protection mode.

Protecting your younger self, yet again. The inner child that was so beaten and shamed. Trying to save itself from anymore pain.

If you have gone through trauma in your life, sooner or later you build up mechanisms for protection.

It could show up in any number of ways such as:
– Anger
– Hatred
– Lack of trust
– Fear
– Self Pity
– Victim-hood
To name a few

I had some of these behaviours and after doing self-help for years, I finally found and understood why I did what I did and why it was

How To Motivate Your Children

Some children grow up to be fulfilled and successful adults.

Some children although intelligent are not motivated to do well.

Bringing small changes at home can improve child’s motivation. Some points to consider are:

1. If you are happy, your child will do better. Create happy environment at home.

The proponents of positive Psychology suggest that if you are happy in present situation, your intelligence, creativity, energy level and productivity increases.

2. Use complex sentences in everyday conversations. Your kids will achieve high scores on literacy-related tasks in kindergarten.

3. Be involved parents.

Make sure child has learnt his lessons well.

Find out where he is facing problems.

Help him to clear his doubts.

Help him in organising things.

Provide support with homework. Your child will do better in classroom.

4. Be involved in school matters. Attend Teacher- parents meetings. Participate in school activities.

5. Recognize and appreciate your child’s efforts.

If your child has made a card, put it up on the fridge. If he has written a poem, listen to it and show your delight.

This will encourage your child. He will feel confident.

6. If you aim high, the child will strive hard to do well to fulfil your expectations. You must expect your kid to do well.
