Important lessons that you should teach your kids

Written by Andres Bryant. Posted in Home

  Being a parent is not an easy thing to do, especially if you have to work and also to take care of your kids. But, psychologists say that one of the most important things that you should do is managing your time as to cover everything. Also, another important piece of advice is to be a good example for your children. According to specialists, the little ones have the tendency to act similar to their parents, due to the fact that adults are their role models. But, this is not all. Here is a small list of other important lessons that parents should take into consideration. Check them wisely.

How to act when they have to face an emergency

Believe it or not, the majority of children do not know how to behave when they have to face an emergency such as a car accident, a fire, water damage and more. However, parents should take actions and explain to them that the most important thing is to keep calm and search for solutions. Also, another important piece of advice is to use a helpline such as a sky number. What is it more exactly? Well, it is a numbers helpline which is used by those who need information in case of an emergency.

Good manners

Parents’ duty is to teach their kids how to properly behave when they go out and socialise with other people. These actions are called “good manner”. Thus, teach your kids to thank anytime someone helps them, to ask politely for the things they like, to say “hello” or “goodbye” when they go or leave a place. But this is not all. Good manners also refer to eating, drinking and dressing properly. Extra tip: Do not act like a regular teacher. Try to use non-formal educational methods in order to make your children understand how important

How to work for the things they want

Do not spoil your children is one of the most important lessons for parents. Teach them to work for the things that they like. However, you may start with “baby steps”. Let’s say for example that your little ones want you to buy them a new toy. Show them that in order to get the toy, they have to do something in return such as doing their homework, reading some extra pages from an educational book, tidying up their room, eating all the vegetables, sleeping earlier and more.

How to tell the truth

The ability to telling the truth is usually forgotten. There are many kids who prefer lying to their parents because they are afraid of being punished. But this is not a proper behaviour. Teach your children to take responsibilities for their acts, without arguing. This also implies telling the truth. Psychologists say that a child who steals something such as a candy bar from the neighbourhood shop would be tempted to do the same later. But, the problem is that he or she would not steal a candy bar this time but something with a greater value. Pay attention to everything that he or she does.

Written by Andres Bryant. Posted in Family

You’ve been a dog owner for years and for you there’s no question that pets are part of the family. You wouldn’t have it any other way. Unlike other people, you don’t make the dog sit outside in the cold and rain, but you let the pooch stay inside with you. You’re going on vacation and the last thing you want to leave your dog with the neighbors. They’ll only ignore the hound. You can’t take the dog with you. So, you’ve naturally thought about dog kennels. What you need to know is that great as they are, not all dog kennels are equal. The best ones all have the following features.

Employees that play with dogs and love what they do

When ti comes to choosing a kennel, the first thing you have to consider are the employees. You don’t trust your neighbors to take care of your precious pet. It’s only normal to be suspicious consideration that people in general think that animals are just animals and that they don’t deserve the same attention as humans. If you’re going to drop your pup off at a kennel, you need to be sure that the employees will take good care of the pup. Take a visit to the facility and see how the staff members interact with the pets. Do they play with the animals? Do they treat them nicely? What you want is people who love what they do.

Dog kennel cleanliness

The dog kennel shouldn’t only look clean, but also smell clean. There’s no reason in the world why the facility should smell.

Playgrounds that are divided

What most boarding facilities do is create a single playground, that serves the needs of animals of all sizes and ages. This is a huge mistake because pups should have their own space, according to size and temperament. While you’re away, you want your best friend to get some exercise and, of course, to have a good time. This isn’t possible if the playground is over-saturated. Your dog won’t enjoy being in a place of dogs, not to mention that conflicts are likely to arise. Make sure that your pooch has plenty of play opportunities. The bottom line is that choosing a dog kennel is a process that’s far from being simple. There are many factors to take into account. If you’re not happy with a facility, don’t leave your dog there. as mentioned before, animals are family members and they deserve the best possible care.
