    The Art of Learning

    Happy last week of April, readers!
    We hope your month has been just as fantastic as ours! Summer is rolling our way and we are excited to be in the sunshine! I mean.. who doesn't love summertime? Today we are going to talk about things that are very serious and overlooked.. WATER and HYDRATION. Let's go there....

Because we love them we have to stay well for them. Water has so many health benefits. It is an awesome liquid! If water is so important to adults.. think about how much MORE important it is for children! ....

    Stretch it out!

    HELLO!! Today we are going to discuss a very important step in athletics! They NEED this!
    Parents.. what do you think of when you think "important part of kid sports"? Sportsmanship? Yes. Toughness? Yes. Dedication? Yes. How about stretching? YES! Stretching plays a very vital role in sports. It may seem like something that can be skipped over but IT CANNOT! Think about it..
    If you go for a 5 mile run every morning.. are you just going to get after it? Probably not. You would stretch out and warm up your muscles to avoid harm to your body. Children's sports are no different. They need to stretch out their muscles to be good to go! VeryWell.com tells us that our ....

  • Let's talk HYGIENE

    Parents!
    Hygiene is so important! We wash our hands to keep the germs away! We brush our teeth to keep life pleasant. Oh yes.. we're going there.. DEODORANT. Keep reading to make sure your child is fully covered in the hygiene spectrum. Brushing..
    Let's talk teeth! They need to be brushed. Sugary drinks are all the rage these days. You rarely see children drinking water. You also see them eating candy and junk food. We aren't bashing it.. we all like our chips every now and then too! :) However, we just want to make sure our teeth are getting clean afterwards. Aside from clean teeth.. brushing keeps breath fresh and germs at bay. MANY germs live in your mouth! So teach your kids ....

    Hard Work Pays Off

    As parents..
    It is our job to show children what hard work is all about. In our opinion.. hard work is great! It teaches children value and self reliance. Men and women work hard all day everyday. Because of this.. they get paid money to take care of their families and live. Children get to see with this alone that hard work is worth a try! But how do we teach our kids..
    Easy! We give them task to complete such as doing dishes, folding laundry, taking out the trash.. etc! If parents do everything for their children (work wise) the children will expect that for life. Life is not going to clean up after children as adults, and neither should you. Listen parents.. you work very hard ....

    Protect your children from bites!

    Well Parents..
    It's getting to be "that" time of year again. The flowers are blooming. The birds are singing.. and the mosquitos have NO mercy! Before you know it.. you are outside enjoying the warmth and getting covered in bites (along with your little ones!) Don't let that happen, parents! DON'T! We Reccommend..
    Bug spray, bug spray, bug spray! We understand the smell can be uninviting, but it is 2017 people! Brands now make insect repellent that smells decentl! Regardless.. use the stuff. Protect your child (and yourself!) Mosquitos can carry diseases like West Nile, Zika, Yellow Fever, Malaria.. and more! You never know what those little creatures may be carrying. Be safe and ....

    Children.. Too Busy Or Not Busy Enough??

    Parents and Families.. Let's talk busy bodies!
    Being too busy can harm your child, yes. Running your child into the ground with clubs and sports and no free time can be dangerous. Very dangerous. Lack of sleep is not good for growing muscles. Constant stress is not good for the brain/heart. This lifestyle also doesn't make eating clean easy. HOWEVER...
    . Not being involved in anything can also be dangerous. Too much free time can lead to oversleeping, dropping grades and bad habits. We do not recommend either of these two lifestyles for a child (or an adult!) We do recommend a healthy balance!! What is a healthy balance? We are SO glad you asked! A healthy balance in our ....
