More parents are searching for information of any kind as they helplessly watch their sons and daughters become highly absorbed in the world of computers, tablets and Smartphones. Children hooked on to video games show clear signs of addiction resorting to tricks such as lying or hiding to play these games. Many show signs of social withdrawal, lack of interest in hobbies and activities, disobedience and even anger. Several video game addicts actually view the games as a means of escape- an alarming trait according to psychologists. So today we will study some strategies you can use to get your child to stop playing video games. Note that there are no guaranteed solutions to video game addiction; you’d want to tweak these strategies and use ones that show positive results.
A pet is a domesticated animal that lives with people, but is not forced to work and is not eaten, in most instances. In most cases, a pet is kept to entertain people or for companionship. Some pets such as dogs and cats are placed in an animal shelter if there is no one willing to take care of it. If no one adopts it or the pet is too old/sick, the pet may be killed.
Many of us have fond memories of growing up with the family cat or dog. As it turns out, 62 percent of households in the United States include companion animals. Dogs are the most popular choice coming in at 39 percent, while cats take a pretty close second at 33 percent. For those of us lucky enough to fall into that 62 percent, childhood included some pretty awesome memories with our first best friend. Playing in the yard, cuddling in pillow forts or dressing our rescue lab like batman to match our Joker costume for Halloween – it’s hard to think of a childhood moment that Brownie didn’t play a featuring roll in.

The summer is here and its time for the kids to enjoy it as much as possible. What if they can enjoy it while making some extra cash and learning something new? I think so! Happens all the time. A business is a perfect opportunity for your kids to learn how to create their own income and recognize opportunities. You may be saying - my kids are busy with school and sports. They’re well taken care of, buddy. I’m not gonna burden them with the task of running a business in addition to everything else.
The obesity epidemic in children over the last few years has been alarming, and therefore parents are always advised to monitor their BMI (Height-to-Weight ratio). The activities carried out by a child during the developmental process go a long way in building up in them, all they need for their adult lives.
Summer is here again; kids are totally school-free for the next 2-3 months. It’s not uncommon that most kids will resort to TV all day long. Their favorite shows that school made them miss must be covered for. But the screen is not the friendliest way to keep your kids busy; in fact, too much of the screen is injurious to their health.
It’s not news that children are the most valued possessions of responsible parents. And at all cost, they always want to protect their children from every possible danger. Unfortunately, these kids are the most vulnerable to dangers because of the carefree lifestyle they are susceptible to live. Without suspecting it and as against most adults who has the intellectual capacity to protect themselves, children expose themselves to a lot of dangers, especially pollutants that can be very injurious to their health.
