Pregnant pilates exercises are not particularly strenuous but you should pay attention to your body and baby by pacing yourself. Your bodys energy levels will be changing and you dont want to overdo it. Fitness professionals usually apply the talk test. If you are too breathless to talk in a relaxed tone and tempo, it is time to slow down. Other signs that you need to take a break are lightheadedness, feelings of faintness, queasiness, racing heart, shortness of breath, uterine contractions, bleeding or leaking fluid, and headache. As the baby grows, your center of gravity will change.

Nurture An Extra Mother This Year

family21

The day we honor the role of mothers is typically reserved to our own mothers and grandmothers, for those who are still fortunate enough to have them. I recommend that we celebrate Mothers Day (or some day) a bit more broadly. Here are a few examples of the kinds of women I have in mind, although I am certain you can add to my list.

The woman in the neighborhood who has never had a child of her own makes a motherly contribution each Halloween when she pretends to be afraid of a scary costume, in awe of the fairy princess and bemused by the boy who arrives in his jeans and t-shirt hoping for some of her delicious popcorn balls.

The stay at home mother who does more than her share of the car pooling duties for your own kids, and frequently takes a wholesome fruit snack to the kindergarten class.

Your daughter who has become such a wonderful mother in her own right.

The local librarian who reads so enthusiastically to all the children at story hour each Saturday morning.

The checkout woman at your local supermarket who offers all the children a candy cane from her smock pocket each holiday season (even though you would prefer that she offer fruit).

The sad woman who lost a child this year, whether that child was a toddler or a retired fire fighter.

The other sad woman down the street whose dear mother is absent for the first Mothers Day in the daughter’s life.

The enthused but exhausted woman in the next block who gave birth to twins or one child who just seems like twins.

This year, whether you are male or female, parent or not, recognize one or two or three of these women. They may not be central to your life, but they still make a contribution to it.

Send them a hand written note thanking them, invite them to your home for Mothers Day dinner, deliver a single rose or a huge bouquet. Most importantly, just thank them.

Stranger Danger Teaching Abduction Safety to Children

family21

Stranger Danger is one of the most important lessons for children to learn. We all know the catch phases like “Dont talk to strangers”, “Never get into a car with a stranger”, and “Dont take candy from a stranger.” The phases are simple reminders for kids, but they can make the child insecure and fearful. How can we teach about stranger danger without scaring them or give them nightmares? Heres some quick tips to keeping your child safe.

What is a Stranger?
The first thing to teach children is the difference between a friend and a stranger. Statistics show that casual acquaintances perpetuate most abductions. Children wrongly assume that because the parent says “hi” to the clerk at the grocery store, that they are friends. Quiz your child in the difference between a stranger and a friend. Ask them if a teacher is a friend or stranger, how about the cashier at Blockbuster, or your neighbor that you have know for 5 years, etc.? This drill is an excellent start.

Saying No to Adults
We teach our children to respect adult and listen to them so most children have difficulty say no to adults. Child Predators exploit this tendency to abduct children by telling them to get into a car with a stern voice. The stern voice makes the child feel they did something wrong and comply with the demands.

Teaching your child, that it is okay to say no to strangers and that they ALWAYS need to ask parents permission first before meeting strangers demands. Parents can role-play the parts of the stranger and have child say no.

Whats the Secret Password?
In the case of an emergency, create a family password that only you and your child know. A friend may need to pick up your child at school or an activity. How does your child know that you asked them to pick them up and its not a trick? Yes, you got it, the family password. The child asks the friend for the family password and if they know it, the child knows that you did send them and everythings okay. Dont forget to change the password once it is used.

Important Information your child should know
Teach your child some vital information will assist if they get lost. You should quiz them periodically to ensure they remember it. Give them lots of praise and attention for answering correctly. The vital information for the child to know is your full home address, home phone number, both parents full names, and cell phone numbers. Many kids are shy around other adults so its important to build their confidence so they can repeat the information to a police officer or another person trying to help.

Know thy enemy
Awareness is power in abduction safety. Parents should know if any child predators live in their area. Parents can go to to search for child predators with prior conviction in your area.

Start A New Christmas Family Tradition With Matching Footie Pajamas

family22

Are you looking for a fun and practical Christmas tradition for your family? Consider buying your family matching footed pajamas. Wearing matching footed pajamas might seem very strange when you first consider it. However, many families are now wearing matching footed pajamas. If you consider why, it really does make sense.

For a very long time, many families have shared the tradition of wearing normal matching pajamas for the holidays. Wearing matching pajamas makes everyone in the family feel closer together, much like wearing a family uniform. But it was often the case that the smaller members of the family would wear footed pajamas while the bigger members of the family would wear the non-footed type of pajamas. Why? Until recently, footed pajamas were only offered in sizes for children. Since some members of the family members were dressing in footed pajamas and others were wearing non-footed pajamas the pajamas were similar but not really matching.

About ten years ago, several companies started making matching footed pajamas in sizes for youths as well as adults. With that development, it became possible to dress the whole family in footed pajamas. Families began to switch from non-footed matching pajamas to matching footie pajamas.

At first, many families switched to matching footed pjs just for laughs. Children enjoyed seeing parents wearing pajamas which were normally worn only by kids. But once parents actually owned footed pajamas, many of them realized why they loved footed pjs so much as children. Footed pajamas are the warmest pajamas available. The warmth and the originality make footie pjs not only fun but practical too.

Why are matching footed pjs practical? Nearly 10% of the population have problems with circulation and complain about cold feet. People with cold feet are unhappy and many people with circulatory problems endlessly seek a solution for it. Many adults with circulatory problems find that they are more comfortable sleeping in adult footed pajamas. The warmth generated by the rest of the body moves to the feet and brings the temperature of the feet to the same level as the rest of the body. Further families discover that when the whole family is dressed in matching footie pajamas they can turn down the heat and save some money. Dressed in exactly the same pjs as the children, parents understand how warm their children are since if the parents are warm, then it is likely that the kids are warm too.

Matching pajamas may have begun as a fun family gift idea. But once adults buy footed pajamas for themselves and their families, many parents decide to make matching footie pjs a tradition that the whole family can enjoy forever.

How To Get Your Children To Listen

family11

Is there a lot of stress and strain in your life because your children just dont listen?

Do you spend the majority of your waking moments chasing after your children because they are not listening to you, and you feel like you have to micro-manage?

Do you have no energy because all your energy is spent being frustrated and blocked by your childrens apparent inability to follow orders?

Well, the good news is you may be able to get back your time and energy and a balanced family life simply by understanding what the communication block is between you and your children.

Of course, every child is unique. Some children need their freedom more than others. Some children enjoy structure, and some do not. But what they all do have is one, two, three or four communication modalities or communication modes in common.

What is a communication modality or mode?

As Dr. Robby, Director of the LMC Relationship Centre, Developer of the Better Parents, Better Kids Program, and co-author of our e-book, Better Parents, Better Kids, explains:

“Communication is the result you get. Different people are on different channels. We learn, we express love and communicate through different modes or combinations of modes. It is important to know who you are playing with and what channel they are playing on, or else your communication will not be very effective. We basically all want to get what we want. If you cannot get your message through of what your needs, wants, dreams, goals and visions are, you will be very frustrated and stressed. So an understanding of communication modes is a basic skill for relationship success, whether that is a relationship with a partner, your children, friends, family or coworkers.”

The following is a very basic definition of the communication modes. You can be primarily one mode or a mixture of up to all four.

Visual people communicate by seeing and doing. They like activities and they like gifts. They notice people, places and things with just the slightest glance. They feel and share love by doing things with or for other people. They take things at face value and do not look deeper into things. They learn by seeing and doing.

Auditory people communicate through talking. They have the natural gift of the gab, are designed to be able to talk for long periods of time. They enjoy talking and listening to other people talk. They feel loved when they are talked to, and like to hear the words “I love you.” They learn by hearing.

Digital people communicate through connection and understanding. They find the deeper meaning in everything they think, see and do. Understanding is very important to them. They feel loved when they share connections with others and are understood. They learn by understanding.

Kinesthetic people communicate through their bodies. They move, feel and express through their bodies. Kinesthetics love to touch, feel, do physical activities and hug. They feel loved when they are touched. They learn through touch and through experience.

Natural Ways To Conceiving A Baby Boy – Essential Tips To Getting The Boy You Want

family2

Couples around the world want to learn how to conceive a baby boy without having to resort to expensive medical procedures. If you have a preference for conceiving a boy, then here are 3 tips to helping you. These 3 tips will help carry the male gene carrying the XY chromosome that’s essential to determining a baby boy and will increase the chances of reaching the eggs first.

1. Ensure that the male does not ejaculate from 4-5 days before the woman’s period of ovulation. This will ensure a maximum number of sperm from the male gene into the vagina during intercourse, thus improving the chances of reaching the eggs first. If the couple agrees to attempt to have a baby boy, then both parties need to do their parts.

2. During intercourse, the couple should aim to make sure that the woman orgasms as this helps increase alkaline levels in the reproductive environment. This will also help to increase the speed at which the male sperm moves along the fallopian tubes towards the eggs. Orgasm also helps to reduce acidic levels which make it easier for the male sperm to penetrate the egg.

3. Another thing the woman can do on her own is by altering her diet to include foods high in potassium and sodium such as bananas, strawberries, red meats, and baked potatoes. The proper diet will also help to create a more alkaline environment for the sperm carrying the XY chromosome as it will help to survive longer and increase their chances of fertilizing the egg.

Wanting to conceive a baby is a wonderful decision and there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to have a baby boy. In fact, by conceiving a boy the natural way you will avoid the expenses of having to go with medical treatments or artificial insemination.

Why Divorce Is So Unfair for Children

family2

Whatever the reason for a couple to divorce, the effects on children can be harmful.

Children love their parents equally and whatever the reasons for a husband and wife to want to end their marriage and go their separate ways, it can not be forgotten how this will impact and affect the children.

Children are hardly ever to blame for a marriage failing. And often they are the innocent victims who lives are completely changed because their parents have decided to split up.

If a marriage is ending because a one of the couple has been unfaithful, the children had no part in this and yet are expected to take sides and willingly accept that their parents will no longer be living together and that the family unit has broken up. Add to this the unimaginable thought of the children having to live with one parent and seeing the other parent on alternate weekends, and you can see how this would badly affect most children especially those who are very small and don’t understand what is going on around them.

Many parents fail to appreciate and understand that their children continue to be affected by this family breakup for many years to come.

Whilst the husband and wife have adapted to being separate, and possibly might have met other partners as time goes on, children still cling on to the hope that their parents might one day get back together again.

They don’t want to see a stranger in their father’s place or another woman with their father. These things can be disruptive especially for young minds and can cause resentment and loathing in children towards the parent who has wronged as well as to the new partners of both parents.

Studies also show that the effects of divorce on young children tend to lead to lower marks at school, mood swings and disruption in the lives of those children whose parents had divorced.

Being As Healthy As Possible While Pregnant

family22

Oral care is very important for a healthy baby. You possibly will not consider your gums and teeth as having any influence on a child, but research has revealed that mothers with gum disease tend to be at a better risk for miscarriage and preterm birth. It is advisable to view your dentist prior to conceive, when you can certainly still get X-rays as well as other treatments.

Start tracking your monthly menstrual period. This way you will be aware whenever you ovulate. This helps you see when a good time is to attempt to conceive a new baby. This will also help if you get pregnant because you may be better capable to determine a due date for your baby.

Don’t stop utilizing a seat belt inside your car while driving or riding as being a passenger. The danger to the baby from your seat belt is much less compared to danger of your stuff being loose in the vehicle in the case of a crash. Make sure the belt can be as low in your hips as possible, preferably underneath your belly.

Keep a journal of your own pregnancy. This special time in your own life will pass you by in no time. Having memories in composing can help you to remember your pregnancy, and later on share memories with your child. Many pregnancy journals can be purchased, or maybe make use of a simple spiral notebook.

Teen pregnancy rates are quickly rising in kids as young as 12. As alarming because this is, the risk may be greatly reduced by open communication between parent and child. Offer advice, speak about birth control as well as abstinence. And don’t forget STD’s. Your child should know, and you also are their best ally!

Many new mothers are surprised to learn that breastfeeding is usually a difficult process at first, and this may lead to needless fears concerning their inadequacy as a mother. Through taking a class on breastfeeding, you will certainly be ready for a number of the difficulties that new mothers often encounter.

Be ready for frequent toilet breaks towards the end from the pregnancy. It can be very common to get out of bed every two hours during the night time and need to get up to urinate. Simply because the baby is pushing on the bladder. Consider this to become training for the sleepness nights ahead after birth.

Sleep with a pillow wedged involving the knees to minimize lower back pain. With all the extra strain lying on your back through the added weight towards the front, you would like to be sure that you will be managing pain effectively as pain relief medication isn’t exactly a choice. The pillow in between the knees aligns your back and gives you great relief throughout the evening or anytime its needed.

Baby Milestones Smiling And Laughing

family9

There are many milestones that you and your baby will reach and experience in the first year of your babys life. Perhaps one of the most rewarding milestones is your babys first conscious smile accompanied with a tiny giggle when seeing your face or recognizing your voice. Smiling and laughing show that your baby not only can express emotion but also proves that your baby understands emotion and empathy.

Since all babies are different, there isnt a definite time when you can expect your child to start smiling and laughing. When your baby is first born, it will respond to various stimuli in their environment. For the first few weeks of your babys life, dont expect even a meaningful eye contact, let alone a laugh or a smile. A smile at this age is only a gas reflex and not an expression of emotion. After about one month, you can expect your child to start recognizing you and looking you in the eye, which is a milestone all in itself. This signifies that your child begins seeing your face and knows where to look for you. As early as five weeks of age you can see your baby’s first smile as a reaction to you playing with him or smiling at him or in a response to another human, to a sound or to a certain movement and gesture.

In addition to smiling, your child will also start making endearing silly faces at you. Your baby will enjoy watching your face as if trying to read it and will mimic your facial expressions and gestures as well. After three months, your baby will still be spending most of their time observing the world and watching what goes on around them. Around this time, your baby will give their first real smile, not because they were mimicking yours, but because they were genuinely happy. Your baby will continue to smile talk for a few months.

After four months, your child will finally have mastered the art of laughing. Whenever babies meet a new person that they like, expect a sound of joy to come from their mouth. New sounds, colors, interesting shapes can also trigger a hearty giggle. However, your baby will reserve his best smiles for the familiar faces and sounds of mom and dad. This is one of the first signs of parent-child bonding and is a truly rewarding one

At around five months of age, your baby will have genuine laughs because he finds something funny or entertaining. Tickles and facial expressions when perceived as funny can cause a marathon of laughter. The same goes for the presence of other babies, rhymes and certain songs they can be very amusing and can bring an avalanche of giggles and smiles.

Create positive and exciting experience for your baby; he will appreciate it and reward you with a smile to light up your heart.

If children are exposed to marijuana or cocaine, they might suffer from attention deficiency, slowness in learning and behavioral problems. When exposed to methamphetamine, babies can suffer from poor quality of movement, fetal growth restriction and decreased arousal.
