How To Stop Thumb Sucking in Kids
How To Stop Thumb Sucking in Kids

How to stop thumb sucking

Thumb sucking has been hotly discussed topic among the parents but what is amazing is that parents are not pediatricians and they are not familiar with the topic yet they still have an opinion on thumb sucking. The question that parents should ask themselves is: how should parents guide their kids to stop popping the thumb finger in to the mouth once they develop that habit. People always come up with myths regarding thumb sucking but most of those myths are not true. Parents should learn to guide their kids in a positive manner if they want the habit of thumb sucking to stop.

The habit of thumb sucking is a common with the kids of age 2 to 6 and this happens to over 80 percent of the kids. Thumb sucking is not a disease that just pops out but it is a natural reflex in tabbies that is used to clam the bay when tired, bored, hungry and bored. Most of the times babies suck their thumb finger when they want to sleep. Parents should understand that thumb sucking is not an awkward thing in kids but they can begin to intervene if the habit extends to the age of 3 years and above. Parents need to learn a lot on how to stop thumb sucking in kids.

There are various methods and steps that can be used to stop kids from thumb sucking. How to stop thumb sucking is a challenge to mothers since they use harsh words to refer to their kids. Sometimes harsh words have a negative impact when t comes to correcting a certain behavior. Kids feel upset and unworthy when their parents become harsh on them. Positive ways in how to stop thumb sucking should be embraced by parents since they can help a long way in stopping the habit.

Use of rewards is the first step in how to stop thumb sucking. As we all know, incentives are good in motivating workers and students in their learning; the same case applies to kids, when parents reward their children for good progress, the kids feel it and appreciate it since they recognize that their parents are happy of them.

The other important step on how to stop thumb sucking in kids is ensuring that the kids are constantly involved in activities that require both hands. This is a good way that helps the kid to forget that they have to suck their thumb fingers. Such activities include the use of gamming pads and playing with them. Parents should be the key people on the frontline since they have to be present when their kids need them, parents ought to monitor the progress of their kids. It’s too unfortunate that some parents become aware of the thumb sucking habit when it is too late; this creates an impression that the parents are rarely with their kids.

Parents should be given tutorials on how to stop thumb sucking since they involve methods that are unreliable and unhelpful to the affected kids. These lessons are very important since they help parents understand the seriousness of the problem..

Could More Involved Parenting Attribute to Less Thumb Sucking?
Could More Involved Parenting Attribute to Less Thumb Sucking?

When a child sucks his or her thumb, it’s usually attributed to the sensation of feeling safe and secure. What was once a reflex as an infant can easily turn into a habit for promoting this feeling. However, not every child turns into a thumb sucker. Could a more involved method of parenting attribute to less of this debilitating habit? Perhaps some children are more apt to being thumb suckers than others.

Investigative Parenting – None of my children, nor the children of my family, turned to their thumbs for any reason. Coincidentally, none of these children had pacifiers either. Instead of demonstrating to the child that sucking random objects is equal to security, we found other ways to comfort them. Personally, I spent time figuring out what the child’s problem was in the first place. All too often, parents are ready to hand over the pacifier without investigating the situation. This becomes a learned behavior and the child will quickly understand that discomfort equals sucking. Instead, try to find out why the child is experiencing the discomfort. A child doesn’t cry for the sake of crying.

New Circumstances – To an infant, the world is a new and scary place. Every experience is a first-timer for him or her. You need to understand that this little life form is relying on you for protection, security and guidance. Even situations we take for granted such as various sounds, textures and tastes are a new experience. In the event a child should become distraught, you can either demonstrate how the situation is a normal part of life or provide comfort. If you choose to provide comfort, hold the child next to you during the situation. The warmth of your body, your heartbeat and your voice can provide more solace that a rubberized sucking tool. Your child could grow to be more affectionate as well.

Less Commercialism, More Interaction – Technology has brought a great deal of useful tools that can make anyone more efficient in work and personal life. Unfortunately, a lot of these efficient tools can also take away from the experience of parenting. It can be too easy to simply place the child in a rocker for hours on end only picking them up to change a diaper or two. Parents should live for their children, not with them. What’s the point of spending all of your time at work if your children don’t know the person you are? Instead of buying various products for efficiency or diversion, spend more quality time at your child’s side and demonstrate that the world isn’t as scary as he or she might think.

It’s Not Spoiling – Being an involved parent doesn’t mean that you need to spend every waking minute with your child. However, more time is always better for his or her development. Instead of viewing the situation like your spoiling the child, understand that you are teaching him or her not to be afraid of certain circumstances.

As each method of parenting is unique, I am only able to report what I have witnessed for myself. As I am incredibly active in the development of my children, they have never needed to suck on thumbs or pacifiers. Instead, we face everything head-on to overcome problems and situations. My children know that I will always be there to offer guidance throughout their lives thanks to the time I spend with them as they grow and develop.

New Children’s Book Teaches Kids How to Use the Key to Unlock the Power Inside
New Children’s Book Teaches Kids How to Use the Key to Unlock the Power Inside

Jensen Beach, FL, March 13, 2014 –(PR.com)– Author Donna McGoff announces the release of “The Power of Goal Setting”.

Learning at an early age how to use a simple skill shows kids that they have the power to create their own destiny. Donna McGoff’s new book, “The Power of Goal Setting”, uses goal setting as a straightforward way of introducing how to exercise the mind to think positively and correctly.

Most behavior is goal directed. Learning the process of goal setting teaches children to become more responsible and build character for successful management of behavior, aspire to reach greater academic achievement, and help draw out personal passion and interest.

An excerpt from “The Power of Goal Setting” by Donna McGoff, M.S.

“Look all around you. What you see are things that someone created. Each of those things started out as an idea or thought in someone’s mind. For example, we have light in our houses so that we can see at night. Thomas Edison had an idea in his mind to create a way for man to see without building a fire, lighting a candle, or using an oil lamp. Thomas Edison had a dream and created a goal to make that dream come true. His goal was to figure out a way to harness electric light so that man could easily use it in his home to make life easier and more enjoyable.”

“The Power of Goal Setting” will keep young readers motivated and inspired because they are engaged in the process from start to finish. The author says, “This is the gift children open as they read this book.”

New Product: Secure Messaging, Chat, Video for Caregivers and Familes
New Product: Secure Messaging, Chat, Video for Caregivers and Familes

Bay Village, OH, February 18, 2014 –(PR.com)– My Kin App, LLC., Bay Village, OH Announces the release of its HIPAA compliant cloud-based messaging, online chat and video service. The portal is the first comprehensive solution designed for the 21st century family unit. Today’s family is spread across town or the country and unable to make frequent in person visits but still wants to be involved.

The apps developer saw the need for a comprehensive communication tool when trying to stay connected to a loved one in a hospice last year.

“My schedule didn’t allow me to visit in person and I was looking for a way to securely stay connected, post pictures and messages. In the world of cyber-attacks and social networks no longer private, I couldn’t find anything that could meet our family’s needs,” says President Ben Sutterlin. “I saw a need and was able to provide a family connection solution through the development of My Kin.”

How does it work:
· The system has several capabilities that make the family connection possible including; a “head of household” or personal representative that confirms outsiders request for access
· Doctors, Nurses, Home Healthcare workers can post updates to the family about the status and care of a loved one directly to family members
· The loved one receiving treatment is prompted daily for a “check in”
· The intuitive discrete visual prompts that allows caregivers and family to see how they are doing without having to ring the dreaded “call button” or stopping by.
· Family Members can post pictures for their loved one of recent activity so the loved one can stay involved
· The portal has a “family forum” that mimics the “dinner table meeting” approach where family members can be invited for confidential discussions about a loved one to help families gain input without playing telephone tag and mixed messages.
· The system does this through a proprietary secure connection of video, email/messaging and chat.

My Kin App, LLC. Is offering a limited number of “first time” customers 3 months of the service for free to help gain referral business.

My Kin App, LLC. is a North East Ohio startup that seeks to provide communication tools and services to families through its use directly by families and via hospital, hospice, and recovery healthcare facilities.

Are Selfies Really to Blame for the Upswing of Head Lice?
Are Selfies Really to Blame for the Upswing of Head Lice?

Seattle, WA, February 27, 2014 –(PR.com)– In recent days, there have been reports about selfies causing an upswing in head lice among pre-teens and teenagers. But can we really put the blame on a quick cell-phone photo?

“We don’t believe that selfies are the cause of more head lice cases in teenagers,” said Nancy Gordon, co-founder of the National Association of Lice Treatment Professionals (NALTP) and owner of Lice Knowing You. “Many cases of teen lice are caused from having younger siblings in the home with lice. These teens then see their friends – they greet each other with hugs, share hair accessories and clothes and, many times, don’t wear their long hair in pony tails.”

In addition, Penny Warner co-founder of the NALTP and CEO of the Lice Place says, that once lice is detected, girls tend to not to discuss the issue with their friends because they fear it will be “social suicide.”

“Bottom line, lice do not discriminate,” said Gordon. “While we have seen more teenagers in our clinics over the past 3-4 years – lice is not a new phenomenon – kids of all ages get it and will continue to get it unless parents take preventative measures.”

While lice is spread through prolonged head to head contact, co-founders of the NALTP Gordon, Warner and Amy Graff, owner of Lousecalls, encourage parents to never let children share hair accessories, hats, helmets, sweatshirts, etc. Children should not hang coats or backpacks next to each other or place them in piles. If possible, have children wear long hair in braids or ponytails and boys should keep their hair short. In addition, parents should use prevention products and check their children, weekly, for head lice.

For more information about the NALTP, please visit www.naltp.net.

The National Association of Lice Treatment Professionals is the only organization committed to experience, excellence and ethics in the head lice removal industry. The association provides guidelines and standards for head lice removal companies across the world. The NLATP standards and guidelines provide protection to the public and continuity surrounding the practice of lice removal professionals within the head lice removal industry. www.naltp.net

Add Calcium to your Children Bones By these Techniques

For your children’s body to be strong and healthy, calcium intake is important. The mineral is an important element for building strong bones and healthy teeth especially for children. Children need more calcium than adults do. For children, the calcium intake methods are more specific and require more attention than for adults. Calcium can be added to children bones through various techniques. The amount needed in the body depends on a number of factors. The most important factor is that the calcium levels are optimized to enable teeth growth and development of bones as they grow. The body does not naturally produce calcium. There is need for intake methods to be implemented. The following methods can be used to realize calcium intake by children.

Breast Feeding 

Children need to be breast fed to grow strong bones and teeth. The main source of calcium for children is mother’s milk. By breast-feeding the child, they acquire calcium that is a main component of the mother’s milk. Breast-feeding allows children to acquire calcium from its natural source. Breastfeeding is also important because it allows the child to take in other minerals that are important in the development of their body. The level of calcium in mother’s milk is optimized for the child’s needs. If possible, all children should be breast fed as long as possible.

Intake of dairy products 

Dairy products are a good alternative for mother milk. Children digestive systems are delicate and unable to digest effectively some other sources of calcium such as vegetables. Dairy products are a good source of calcium for children because they exist in a form that is easy to digest and absorb. Milk, yoghurt, and cheese are good dairy sources of calcium. However, younger children should not take in a lot of processed dairy products such as yoghurt and cheese.

Processed food for Children 

There are a number of processed foods that supplement calcium intake. A number of processed foods contain calcium as part of their ingredient. Processed calcium for children should be easy to digest and absorb. These sources of calcium require that a background on the calcium levels in comparison with the calcium need of the child be made before the child is given the food. The quality of food in terms of the other constituents of the food should be considered before the food is given to a child. Processed food such as Milo is good sources for calcium for children.

For your child to have a strong and energetic adulthood, sufficient levels of calcium intake is necessary. Strong bones are as a result of good calcium levels of the child. The institute of medicine recommends that for children of the age one to three years, calcium levels of 700 milligrams per day should be given. Children of the ages between four years to eight years should have 1000 milligrams of calcium daily. Children of the ages between nine and eighteen years should take 1,300 milligrams of calcium every day. Nevertheless, Ehic Renewal is advised for other health issues that may emerge.

The Glovey Huggey a Perfect Holiday Gift
The Glovey Huggey a Perfect Holiday Gift

As we approach the winter, it’s quite normal to start looking at just about any product you come across as a potential Christmas gift. This could go from video games to clothing items, but there is one thing that you should be considering quite seriously as a great Christmas or Holiday gift.

You will inevitably know somebody with a young child – we all do! – And finding a good present for their child can be quite hard to do so. Clothes are useless as they grow out of clothes in minutes, and expensive gifts like games consoles and jewelry are likely to be used as a weapon. Therefore, try finding something that is going to benefit the child for a long-time.

For example, children are notorious for sucking their thumbs until the age of about four. If you notice the child doing this a lot, then it is worth noting it to the parents. Thumb sucking can be quite dangerous to the positioning of the child’s teeth, and can also have a lasting effect on their thumb in general. Although it’s not life-threatening, it can become a pretty big problem down the line so dealing with it at the source is a great way to start.

There are many ideas and notions out there about the best way to deal with thumb sucking, but one of the most effective is the kid’s glove known as a Glovey Huggey. This is a warm mitt or glove which comes in a variety of different colors and fits children ages 2-4 and 4-8.

These gloves are extremely durable and they allow your child to have full access of their hands and fingers at all times. What it does is cover up the thumb with a gloved finger, instantly putting your child off of sucking their thumb. As well as giving them full grip and control, they will instantly realize the importance of not sucking their thumb.

However, this makes a great gift because it looks so nice and friendly! Kid’s love colorful and vibrant clothing and these will go great with many kids’ outfits. Just try and pick from one of the many different colors that are available to choose from (http://endthumbsucking.com/) and you can have a pretty simple solution to both the child’s potential dental issues and finding a great Holiday gift for the little one!

Making Room For Baby In An Apartment Or Small Living Space
Making Room For Baby In An Apartment Or Small Living Space

When expanding your family, it can be difficult to find the extra space in a small apartment or home. Between adding new baby furniture to making room for a play area, there are a number of ways to ensure that you find the space you need without having to move out.

 

Sell Extra Furniture

 

Make extra room in any home by selling extra furniture that is simply used for decorative purposes, between vanities to antique armoires. Although these items may make your home beautiful, they are not needed when bringing a new baby into the home. By selling the furniture, it will also provide extra cash for the first month’s expenses.

 

Divide a Room

 

If you’re wanting to have a baby room but do not have the space, use a folding screen in the master bedroom, which can work to separate the baby’s space without making everything feel too cluttered. The changing table and crib can be placed in a corner of the room for an individual area that is still functional.

 

A room that is currently functioning as an office can also be transferred to the living room and have a folding screen for privacy and to still make it feel like an extra room.

 

Rent a Storage Unit

 

Renting a storage unit is the best option to store belongings that you still want to use in the future. It will provide a clean and safe space that is out of sight and secures the home’s possessions until they’re needed at a later time. It’s a great way to free up an extra room to transform it into the baby’s room without feeling guilty of throwing out sentimental items. You can take a look at what some of kind of options you will be dealing with online by visiting http://www.extraspace.com/Storage/Facilities/US/Nevada/Las Vegas/300082/Facility.aspx.

 

Hang Certain Items

 

Hanging items in the home frees up floor space, making it easy to move items around and create more space for a child to crawl and play. Mount televisions onto the walls and get rid of bulky TV stands that take up space. Floor lamps can also be removed before installing overhead lighting that still offers the same amount of illumination in the room.

 

Instead of using large bookcases that can take up a quarter of the room, use shelving above beds or dresses that can be installed on the walls, which will also decorate the home..
