Dogs are a kid’s best friend A dog is a lovely addition to any household. Your child will love having a pal to romp around with and to help them cause mischief. Children who like to develop strong bonds will do very well with a dog in the family. They are also great for teens who feel that no-one understands them. The relationship with a dog is very deep and intense and they literally become a member of the family.
All parents want their children to receive the best upbringing possible. Of course, there are as many different ideas about what this means as there are parents. No two parents are entirely the same in their approach, and everyone wants a certain set of things for their children. However, once you start to look at the many things that people frequently cite as essential for their children, certain patterns do tend to emerge. With that, we can put together a short list of the kinds of qualities that tend to mark out great upbringings. Let’s have a look now at some of the qualities of the best upbringing possible.
Lots Of Travel You know the saying: travel broadens the mind. This is certainly true, and it would be fair to say that the most malleable minds are the best to broaden. If you have the opportunity to allow your children to travel extensively while they are young, then you should absolutely do so. Of course, not everyone has the resources to be able to do this. But if you do, you should make the most of it. Getting your children to travel around the world instills in them a good understanding of what it means to be human – and if they have that early on, then you will find it makes a big difference to their personalities in later life. Even if you can only afford to travel a little, it is still definitely worthwhile for the many benefits it tends to bring to your children.

EukyBear has this line of lice solution products “Euky Bear Blitz Nitz” released which is perfect for summer!
My kids, who are actively into playing outdoors these days, are mostly prone to getting nits and lice, of which we cannot control unless preventive measures are taken.
What a great feeling to know that fellow moms from other countries also read and follow my blog! Best part of it, we all share the same thoughts (Well, I guess, all moms do!). In return, I did a collaboration with some of them and here’s one of those who have already shared interest in guest posting. Read on…
Exercise and Your Kids. Exercise is an important activity for children to engage in, but you can make it more fun by joining them. Children will often reiterate what they see their parents doing, so exercise is a healthy activity to repeat.

Although working from home is one of the best decisions I’ve made so far, I still have this thought at times that what if I unintentionally neglect my most important role in life – being a “mom” to my children. Being visible is not just it. Yes, they see me seated on my chair as soon as they come home from school, but there are times that I couldn’t keep up with what they really need from me. Guess, I’m just lucky to have a house helper around to assist me, but there will always be things that only a mom can and must handle, personally.
Some days, I feel like things are working the way I like it. I get to spend time with my children on weekends, and in between my working hours when they need assistance on their homework. On other days, I feel like quitting and just be a SAHM, focusing on household chores, school events and the likes.
I’ve been an on and off WAHM for over 9 years now and finally settled to being one again, just this year. I still remember vividly when my brother
