Halloween Safety

Bookmark and Share
Halloween is fast approaching and safety is all forgotten when we get our kids ready to go. Costumes should be brightly colored or have some type of reflective capabilities. We always want our little ones to be cute, but there are some things to keep in mind.

Never allow kids to eat any candy until you have checked it all.

Small kids need to have an adult take them from door to door.

Make sure children that go along do not enter any homes.

Make sure children walk and do not run from house to house.

Keep costumes from hanging below the ankles or knees on little ones.

There are so many things to do to keep kids safe, but these are some of the important ones. Halloween is for fun and safety is the only way to keep everyone safe.

Do Babies Understand What You Say

Bookmark and Share
This is one person's opinion, but since I have memories back to when I was two and three years old, I would have to say that yes, babies can understand that people are talking to them. They might even understand. If babies could talk, we might here some interesting conversation about what they think about how we act when we are around babies. There are many different levels of thinking and understanding in babies and it may be possible that babies do understand more than what we know.

Want to see how a baby might think or say if they could. Read this cute little baby post. Nobody Understands Me

Parenting And Disciplining

Bookmark and Share
Parenting is getting hard every day. You cannot spank your child or it is child abuse. Your child can skip school and you as the parent are held liable for there behavior. You have to make sure your child goes to school. If you cannot accomplish this, some states will arrest the parents for failing to make sure their children attend school.

This reminds me of a story I heard recently about a mom who paddled her sons butt with a belt. She hit him three times on the bare butt. He is sixteen and out of control. No matter what she does, he rebels. Therefore, she went to the old fashion way of discipline. She takes the kids to church every Sunday and the other kids seem to listen, but of course, they are still younger. You know those teen years get tougher to handle.

Now, the mother is under arrest for spanking the kid with a belt. He snuck out of the house when she wasn't looking and went to a neighbor's house and told them she hit him with a belt. Mine you, he crawled out his bedroom window. He had done this before to go out and hang with friends.

Being a parent is hard. You want your children to grow up the right way, but you are not allowed to spank them. Maybe this is why there are so many problems with drugs, gangs and other criminal activity.

When I was a kid, we were spanked with a hand or a belt. We never had gangs or other criminal problems. Drugs were apparent, but not like today. It is time parents take back the lives of their kids and start disciplining them as they were disciplined.

What do you think? You have tried everything. Would a spanking mean business more so than saying don't do that again or I will ground you.
