You need to find out what is responsible for causing your child to be ill, then you can mitigate it in the future and/or hold whatever did it to account. There are huge amounts of child products that are causing children harm in this day and age. The harm can be fleeting, like a physical injury, but it can also be lasting and life threatening. An example can be seen in the high amount of teething tablet lawsuits that have increased over the last few years. If there is something wrong with your child go to your utmost to realize and understand what it is that has caused it. Only then can you stop it. If there is serious problems take the provider to court so that it doesn’t happen to anyone else and so you can use the money to help in the care for your child going forward. Another key is prevention. There’s one thing suing people for hurting your child, but if you researched the potential risk then you may never have bought it. Check up on everything you buy for your children, make sure they are perfectly safe before using them. Prevention is the best thing you can do.

You Should Never, Ever Do These Things To Your Newborn

If you’ve got a newborn baby, or you’re waiting on the arrival of your little one, then doing as much research as possible is going to help you to prepare. To give you peace of mind, here are some of the things you should never, ever do to your newborn.


Make Them Sleep Alone
Your baby should naturally sleep by you at night time. Either in your bed (safely of course) or by your bed in a crib. This makes them healthier and they have less chance of dying from infant death syndrome.

Avoid The Present Panic When Shopping For Your Teenage Son

Buying the perfect birthday gift for kids is never easy. Their tastes change so fast they’ve already moved on by the time you buy something. You would think the challenge would get easier as they grew and their tastes settled. You’d be wrong. No one is harder to buy gifts for than a teenager. If you have a teenage boy, you might be totally lost for ideas. At least with a girl, you can opt for fashion and makeup. Boys don’t even have that! You could get him something new for that games console, but how can you be sure what’s good? The best way to stop present panic is to get a few ideas!


CONCERT TICKETS

We’re not saying you should snoop in your son’s room, but have a quick look at his CD collection when he’s not home. If there’s more than one CD for the same band, chances are they’re his favorites. Why not buy him tickets to see a concert? Bear in mind that you’ll need purchase a ticket for his friend to go, too. He’s not going to want you cramping his style! Of course, if the band are no longer together, or have passed, you’ll need to pick another. Think back to any bands he may have mentioned. Take note of any posters he might have on his walls. There are clues all around you!


HIS FIRST WALLET

A man’s first wallet is a crucial moment. It’s a step towards independence, and can make a guy feel great! Even if your son’s had cheap wallets before, buy him an expensive one for his birthday. This is something he can cherish and will have for a long time to come. Well, assuming it doesn’t get lost or ruined (he is a teenager, after all). You could opt for a traditional leather wallet, or get something a bit different, like a crocodile wallet. Think about your son’s personality when considering. If he likes to stand out from the crowd, something different will work well. If he likes to keep to himself, traditional is better.

AN IMPORTANT BOOK

Connecting with teenagers can be hard. Why not give your son a book that that meant a lot to you when you were his age? Again, it’s important to take his personality into account, here. Don’t buy a book you know he’ll never enjoy! Think about his tastes, and see if there’s a book that suits them. This will give you something to talk about, and could come to mean a lot to him!


A DAY OUT WITH MATES

If all else fails, you could always opt for a day out with his friends. If you’re stuck for ideas, look out for the chance to ask his friends what he would enjoy. Paintballing, go karting, and theme parks always seem to go down well! If you want to keep things cheap, opt for an activity day with a set price. Otherwise, this could end up as a pricey present!

Valentine’s day is coming up, and not everybody wants to do the bog standard flowers and chocolates thing that seems to happen all the time. Sure, it’s still nice, but it can be a little boring.

Take a look at some of these unique ideas and see if you find anything for your loved one!

Life Happens

I feel like I haven't posted a personal post in such a long time. So I'm going to take this time to just give some life updates, as that's what my blog was originally started on.

First off, I finished off the fall semester with a 4.0. I only had two classes, Eng 101 and a retail marketing class. Both received As. I don't think I'll keep that 4.0 this semester, unfortunately. these classes are a little harder. This time I have a math class, and two marketing classes- intro to marketing, and social media marketing. I'm hopeful to get at lease Bs in those classes :)

Also, in the middle of January, I got hired for a job! I've been wanting to go back to work for a while now, but I finally decided to get out there and found a sitter, and a found a great job that has good hours. I'm super happy. I started there on January 30th. I'm now balancing a job, being a mom, and schoolwork. I feel like it's a bit crazy! But I'm making it work.

I think one of my biggest fears with starting a new job, was how the heck will I interact with adults, again LOL. But, this training class I'm in, currently has eight people, including myself. We're a good bunch, and we all get along. I've never meshed with so many people at the same time in like, forever. I'm feeling good about it. I'm confident in what I've learned, and I actually start doing the work later this week. Training is just about over, and we go into the "actively working" part of the training. So I'm excited. Of course a bit nervous, who wouldn't be.

Anyways. I'm looking forward to this new chapter of my life, and I'm super excited to see what happens next.
