Five Foods That Negatively Impact Your Child’s Mood

A child’s behavior and mood can easily be influenced by their diet, and even though sugar has been found to be the most frequent, mood-altering food isn’t limited to just sweets. The five following foods are some of the most common contributors to child behavior and mood:

Must Have Items For Potty Training

Potty training for the first time can be very overwhelming, especially with the mess and the baby’s cries. It’s easy to look around and ask yourself why-why is this so challenging, why isn’t your child potty trained when all of their friends are. While these thoughts may cause stress in the beginning, as long as you are prepared from the start, there will be nothing to worry about.

Living With Toddlers

Experts have noticed a growing trend of women parenting two toddlers under two years of age. It has emerged that over half of women at parenting centers plan pregnancies close together. This is actually a convenience because you can do potty training, diaper training, and sleep training all at once, and the children can play together. According to some parents, close sibling spacing reduces the time away from their career or paying for child care.

Why You Should Be Giving Your Baby Limits

Kids can't absorb too many rules without turning off completely. Forget arguing about little stuff like fashion choices and occasional potty language. Focus on the things that really matter -- that means no hitting, rude talk, or lying.

How the Age of Parents Affects their Kids

Are you thinking to have a kid? You’re not sure if it’s better to wait and be more mature or to start having kids and be a young parent? A lot of researchers have conducted studies about it. They have studied the effect a parent’s age can have on the children he or she raises.

How to Talk to Your Teen About Alcohol, Drugs and Sex

Parenting teenagers is not an easy task. As a mother or father, at times, you will find yourself at a loss of words in an attempt to explain something complicated or difficult to your teenagers, even when they are old enough to comprehend most topics. Your teenagers will go through different phases, they’ll mix into different crowds (some of which you like, and others that you don’t), and face a whole bunch of highs and lows.

Scientific Study Confirms How Many Hours of Sleep Your Child Needs

Parents who are always on their teens' cases for Saturday-morning laziness may want to rethink their behavior. Unless your kid hits the sack before midnight, an 8 a.m. wakeup-call is too early, according to new research. Previous studies have shown that children who go to bed one hour earlier for five nights in a row are less irritable and have longer attention spans.

Top 5 Things You Need In Your “Dad Bag”

Welcome to fatherhood! You may have been an absolute angel for the past nine months supporting your partner with back rubs, late night runs to the supermarket for ice cream, and undying love and affection, but your job is far from over.

Why You Should Take More Pictures of Your Kids

Growing up I hated posing for pictures. Everywhere we’d go my parents would want to snap a picture of the rest of my family and me. I didn’t understand it, did we really need proof that we ate together at Burger King on March 14th, 1993? As a child I was fidgety, and as a teen, I was cynical and viewed everything as pointless.

How to Raise Stable Teens

Teenage is usually the stage in life that people start to form their self-image. For the first time in their young lives, they’re free to be stimulated by things of their own choosing. It is when they’re given the freedom to spend time with their own friends, wear the clothes that they wish, and consumer culture that they’re interested in.
