What Kids Would Tell You...If Only You'd Ask! Review and Giveaway!

Hey Neighbors!

This is a neat one for Family Fun Night! Dr. Vicki Panaccione founder of the Better Parenting Institute, wrote a book called What Kids Would Tell You...If Only You'd Ask! This book is meant to be done together with your children. Each page has a question for you to ask your child and a blank area to record the answer. Some pages include a question for the parent to answer. First question is:What do you want to be when you grow up? The parents question is:When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Simple? Maybe, but when is the last time you really sat down and had a conversation with your child? How well do you really know each other? Some of the questions in this book are easy conversation openers, while others require more thought. This one takes a little more thought: What is the most important thing you have learned from your mom and dad? Each of your brothers and sister? Parents,What's the most important thing you've learned from your kids? Each other? And then here is a conversation opener:How many things can you do with a pencil? A paper clip? A bar of soap?

You can use this book for Family Fun Night, or perhaps ask one question each evening at dinner. For Family Fun Night you can actually take turns asking and recording the answers. Another idea might be to get a journal for each person to answer the questions in and save them for when they are grown. Or perhaps your child could pretend to be an interviewer and pick 4-5 questions to ask you.

If I could be a kid again I'd start over from age 12 and not worry so much about boys until later in life. I'd participate in more sports and school activities and make better grades. I'd also be more open with my parents about how I felt about anything.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
