3 Tips to Help A Teething Toddler!

  • A raw carrot, cucumber or celery stick straight from the fridge. Stay with him when he is eating it, to make sure he doesn’t choke on any pieces he bites off.
  • A cold, wet flannel.
  • A chilled teething ring. Solid teething rings are recommended over gel or liquid-filled rings, which could leak. Never dip a teething ring in honey or anything sweet beforehand.

Your toddler may lose his appetite while he’s teething. Chilled foods such as yogurt may soothe his gums and be more appealing.

Drinking from a cup may be easier for him, and cool water can be soothing too.

Reading Is Fun! | Parenting Tips

That goes for you Parents too. Don’t forget that your child mimics what you do. So if you don’t already, you should add a healthy dose of quiet reading enjoyment for yourself. I know it’s tough to find the hours in the day. But if we can find the time to catch up on our favorite shows, call friends and family on the phone or other things, we can schedule time out to pick up a great book. This will do wonders for your child in terms of how they truly view the act of reading. They will see you love it as a great escape and not a chore!

Great Children’s Book About Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr. – Civil Rights Activist & Minister

Martin's Big Words by Doreen Rappaport and Brian Collier
Martin’s Big Words
by Doreen Rappaport and Brian Collier

With the Dr. King Holiday approaching on Monday the 18th. We think it is especially appropriate to read, study and celebrate his legacy in our household.

Being a family of mixed heritage we hold this day in high esteem because we feel in a way our lives and our sons’ very existence is a living testament of Dr. Kings dream becoming a reality.

As a World community we still have a long road ahead for achieving racial and religious harmony and acceptance but at the core of all I believe there is goodness in each of us and that we shall overcome together and unite as one.

Thank you Dr. King for your vision, dedication, perseverance and sacrifice!

What a great book. You can buy it online or check it out from your local library!
