7 of the Best Parenting Tips

Good******Bad****** Ugly

 
Parenting Advice

Before your children are born you possibly have unrealistic ideas of what it means to be a parent. You are possibly envisioning theses beautiful children that can do no wrong.

After your children are born and the reality of parenting sets in. You may be open to all the parenting advice that you can get, because there is the reality that even though you love your children, you had no idea that it would be like this.

1. Good

May I take you back just a little? Do you remember when your first baby was born? That moment in the hospital after giving birth can be a joyous occasion. Possibly even after you bring the baby home, your baby just takes a bottle and then goes right back to sleep. After a couple of months you are probably thinking, “I can hardly wait until my baby starts talking.”

It is good when you have family such as mother and mother-in-law to give you their expertise help from their own experiences of being a mother.


2. Chores:

I always felt chores were good to help give children responsibility. Also, this gives them practice regarding things that need to be done around the house. I did not expect their chores to be perfect, but I did expect them to be done. Also, remember a chore should be something that your child can accomplish for their age bracket. It may range from washing dishes, emptying the trash, or just dusting the furniture. I remember as a child I loved to dust and I loved the smell of the furniture polish. I also loved the way the furniture shined afterwards. It gave me a feeling of accomplishment.


3.Bad  

Now this is not really bad unless you perceive it as that. I like to think of it as stages of the baby growing up. You may have never considered that your baby will be cranky during teething time. You may have never considered you nor your husband would get very little sleep when your baby is colicky. You may have never known that two-year-old would throw temper tantrums. Possibly you assumed your toddler would do everything that you asked. It never occurred to you that toddlers have minds of their own.  Previously when your baby was born, you could not wait for your baby to talk, now you possibly feel guilty because you are thinking,” I do not want to hear the word “mama” or “mommy” any time soon because my ears need a rest.

Then there was the time after we came home from church. My husband went to work. I was so sleepy I could not keep my eyes open. My 7 month old had on her new church dress. I figured I will go into the bedroom and close the door with her in there with me.  I needed a nap very much.   Since I knew she was a curious child that started actually walking at 8 months. I thought, “What can she get into?” So I fell asleep and when I woke up, my 7 month old had climbed the 6 handles on my tall dresser. She could not get back down so she was doing her jobber-jabber. She had opened my liquid makeup and poured it all over her beautiful dress and was smiling at me as if to say, “Look mommy.” I could not be mad at her, after all God kept her safe from any harm.



4. Your Baby

You may feel bad when you have fed your baby, changed your baby's diaper, and to no avail your baby is continually crying for too long a period of time. After taking your baby to the doctor you discover the crying was for a reason, because the baby has an ear infection. Your baby could not talk, but instead cried as loud as (he or she could) to let you know something was not right. Do not beat yourself up about this, because you did make it to the doctor in time. Remember parenting is trial and error whether you like it or not.

5. Love

Can you be too loving to your child? I think not. Your children will receive enough negativity in the world. I believe that more praise will truly build your child’s self-confidence and definitely help him or her to feel good about their selves in general.

6. Ugly

Although this is not ugly at the time it may feel quite uncomfortable when you need to apply tough love as your child get's older. If you have been an enabler and you have not allowed your child to develop to become a productive part of society, you may feel guilty or sad about the outcome. Tough love is a choice. A question I have often asked myself is, “If this were not my child, would I allow this type of behavior?” Sometimes, we need to detach ourselves from the situation.

As I watched the TV program Supernanny, I was amazed at how this woman goes around and helps families where the children are basically taking over the house and running the lives of not one parent, but both parents. Basically you do not have to be mean to get your point across to your toddlers, children or teens. You do however, need to be persistent. You do, however, need to be on the same page with your husband regarding your children. No you and your husband may not agree, but there needs to be a common ground.

7. Habits

I recall my one daughter was born sucking her finger on the delivery table. The doctor looked at me and told me, “She has probably been doing that while you carried her in the womb.” When we went home, my husband was adamant about pulling her finger out of her mouth. He did not want her sucking her thumb, he was afraid she would eventually have buck teeth. I, however, disagreed and I knew very little about babies, but I know everyone has some type of habit, this just happened to be hers. Needless to say, he allowed the thumb sucking. She grew up with beautiful straight, white teeth. When she was about 6 or 7 years old, she came home from school and told me the children were teasing her and she wanted me to put hot sauce on her thumb to help her stop sucking her finger. I did so. Needless to say she was determine to stop and she did.

Parenting is a stage in life. There will be some good days and some bad days, but inevitably you still love your children, hopefully, unconditionally.

Music is Healing and Soothing

Benefits of Music.. . . .

Did you know that music therapy has a healing effect on the body? It is ideal for the brain. Music therapy has existed for many years and has many healing properties.
 
Music as Therapy
Music is something that we sometimes take for granted. Sometimes we may not even be aware that we hear music. Have you observed that many of the retail stores are playing music while you shop? Music is good for us and is a vital part of our well-being. I love music and have learned to appreciate different forms of music.

1. Chronic Pain
Have you ever considered music therapy for chronic pain? This is just one of the benefits of music therapy. Listening to music daily reduces chronic pain if you have osteoarthritis, disc problems, or rheumatoid arthritis. I cannot imagine having to be in constant chronic pain. That has to wear and tear on your nerves and the rest of your body as well. In addition, everyone’s pain tolerance is different. I was glad to see the smiley faces in the hospital with the 1-10 number for patients to rate the depth of their pain. I recall a young lady going to the hospital for the delivery of her baby. She had only dilated to 1 and she still needed to go to 10. She immediately asked the nurses soon as she walked in the Emergency Room to give her medication for pain. Unfortunately they said it was too early for that.
2. Babies in the Womb
I recall when my twin grand babies were born; they were in the hospital for about a week. I realized and knew then children learn through music. During that time I recall visiting them daily and talking and singing to them as well. Also, before the babies were born, my daughter would mention that whenever I was around her and started talking the babies would start kicking and moving. So I decided to make a tape that she could play for them while they were in the womb.
In fact, babies come here with natural rhythm. It is internally made within them. Have you watched when a baby moves to music. You will be able to see the enjoyment in their face and in their movement as well.
3. The Heart
Did you know that music protects the heart? According to everydayhealth.com A study done of 10 healthy-adults in their mid-thirties showed a 26% improved blood flow when they listened to joyful music.
The good thing about music therapy is that children as well as adults can benefit from it, according to musictherapyconnections.org. In addition, they state children with special needs, adults with Alzheimer’s, or those with substance abuse problems benefit from music therapy.
4. Music in the Bible
Ezekiel 28:13 speaks about when Lucifer was created by God. Lucifer was an angel beautifully adorned with precious stones such as diamonds and sapphires and supposedly had pipes within his body, supposedly his lungs. It is said by some that when he sang the music sounded like beautiful flutes from a pipe organ.
What types of music do you like to listen to? What music do your children like to listen to?
5. Children Hospitalized
After children have had surgery, while they are in the hospital music therapy can help them heal. Music therapy is great for lowering the blood pressure too as well as reduces the children’s stress while in the hospital.
6. History
Musictherapy.org., talks about the effects of music on health and behavior exist way beyond Aristotle and Plato. After World War 1 and World War II professionals would go to Veteran Hospitals to play for those suffering physical and mental trauma. Dr. Benjamin Rush was a physician and psychiatrist that strongly supported using music to treat medical diseases. He realized the benefits of music therapy.
I also realize the benefits of music therapy. I listen to a variety of music ranging from gospel, classic, country, and smooth jazz. Smooth jazz is just very relaxing for me. How has music therapy helped you?
7. Classical Music
Did you know that listening to classical music decreases blood pressure, fights, depression, puts you to sleep, supercharges brainpower, and much more? This is according to takelessons.com

Why I Like Calf Liver

 There are Many Benefits to eating calf liver. . . 4 Things You Should Know

Did you know that although beef liver is good for you Calf liver is the most tender. Now I believe it is traditional to eat rice with liver and onions, but have you tried calf liver with mashed potatoes?

Nutrients in liver


I originally did not know there was a difference in livers. I only knew about beef liver and rice. One day I discovered calf liver. Once I tried it, I immediately could taste and see the difference. Calf liver is so tender that it almost melts in your mouth. Now beef liver is not quite so tender even though it is good also.


Since I am not a big rice eater, I decided to try calf liver, onions, gravy, and mashed potatoes. That tasted so gooooooooood!!!!! I just cannot tell it all.

1. Statistics

Now according to strengthsense.com 80 percent of the daily recommended daily value of selenium is supplied by liver and is the best anti-cancer mineral.

2. Vitamins and Minerals

Did you know that calf liver is a good source of vitamin A.  It contains 6 of the eight B vitamins, and iron that is needed for wound healing, immune function, and manufacture of DNA. Yes this is according to healthyeating.sfgate.com


3. Different Ways to Cook Liver

According to Livestrong.com you can cook liver a variety of ways such as liver and onions, liver and vegetables, liver pate, and grilled liver.

4. Liver in Meatloaf

Charles Duhigg talks in his book about how there was a time that liver was not a popular food even though it was good for. He emphasized how housewifes would put bits of liver in meatloaf in order to get this healthy food delivered to their family.

Your Blood Does Have a Voice

Yes your blood has a voice. A lot can be determined from taking a blood test. The next time that your blood is drawn or you donate blood remember how important the blood is.


 
DNA

1. Jury Duty

When I served jury duty for a rape-hijacking case, many of the jurors including myself questioned why we were on a case that occurred about 8 years or more ago. We were told that DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid, or does not apply, or do not accept) testing had not been discovered at that time. So when it became available they tested the raped kits and found a match. This showed me even though the crime occurred several years ago, the blood still had a voice.



2. Blood Cries Out

In Genesis 4:10 the Lord speaks about how Abel's blood cries out to Him.  So this is nothing new about the blood having a voice. What is new is that man has discovered how to prove it scientifically. Man is always looking for scientific proof. God has asked believers to believe by faith.

3. DNA

Have you ever wondered why the doctor's and hospital's do blood testing? Have you ever watched a movie where the robber or killer used gloves so as not to leave any finger prints at the scene? Blood tests can reveal diabetes, paternity, cancer, your heritage, and many diseases. The blood does have a voice. Your blood has it's own individual voice. Remember that the next time your blood is tested.


4. Is Your Bone Marrow Important?

Have you given any thought about your bone marrow? Do you know where your bone marrow is located in your body? How would you survive without bone marrow?

Unless you know of someone that needs a bone marrow donor or possibly you have a problem with your bone marrow, you may not think about the major role it has in your life.

Leviticus17:11, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.” I have often read this scripture. When I was younger, I did not quite understand the importance of the blood to the body. Just think over 100 years ago who would have known that DNA testing would help determine paternity or even help discover diseases of the blood?  Yes your bone marrow is important. 

5. Bone Marrow Transplant

Did you know that more than 20 billion new blood cells are produced everyday throughout your life? That is according to Cancer.net. It is further stated that while chemotherapy destroys the fatty tissue inside larger bones there are Hematopoietic stem cells found in the bone marrow that are collected, frozen, and then reintroduced into the blood stream after the chemotherapy where they multiply and grow new and healthy cells. The great thing about this is that a person can receive his or her own stem cells. Stem Cells are so vital in creating new healthy cells. The fact that a person can receive their own stem cells to do this is even more awesome. I I do know of friends that have had this done successfully.

According to Livestrong.com you require and average of 46 to 56 grams of protein daily to help sustain healthy bone marrow. They further add that meat, poultry, fish, dairy foods, legumes, and vegetables are good sources to get this daily protein. I make it a point to eat some of these foods daily.

6. Bone Marrow Recipe

Did you know that there is such a thing as bone marrow food? According to Paleoleap.com, bone marrow food is a creamy food that is very pleasing in taste and can be found in the bones of beef, deer, elk or caribou. They further state that traditional cultures all over the world highly value this.  I am convinced that bone marrow is very important to sustaining life.

Have You or Someone You Know Seen These 6 Red Flags?

What You Need to Know. . . . .

Have you ever met someone and even though they seemed likable, there was something that just did not quite seem right? Possibly there were events that just did not make sense to you.

 
Domestic Abuse Signs

Sometimes there may be emotional abuse signs when you are dating or in a relationship. Possibly you are blind to some things that you really should look at more closely. Also note that there are women that abuse men also. I recall getting numerous calls to a previous phone number that I had. It was usually men calling to get a restraining order against a woman. Apparently, my number was similar to the number that they were attempting to reach.

PAY ATTENTION:

1.False Promises

One red flag that some may tend to ignore is when your boyfriend or spouse does hurtful things and then later tells you it will never happen again. If he or she has hit you once that is one too many times. If the hurtful things he or she says repeatedly continues, that is a pattern and is definitely too many times.


According to Mayo Clinic staff if he or she acts jealous or possessive of you, you may be in an abusive relationship. In the beginning you may think it is cute that he is jealous of you, but in time that jealously can smother you. I know from previous relationships. I recall in a previous relationship my spouse stated, “ I wish I could just put you in a cage and keep you on an island just for me.” Now how sick is that? You need to pay attention to the signs. Jealously and possessiveness is not healthy. No one should be put in an emotional prison. Do not allow this. They further add that if he or she blames you for their violent behavior that is not healthy. Possibly he or she may say, “You made me hit you, because you just will not do right.” Seemingly it is always “your fault” for the violent person's behavior.

2.Control

When someone wants to control when and where you go, this is a sign to pay attention. When someone times you and starts calling you, because you did not make it back from the grocery store in 15 or 20 minutes pay attention. When someone is calling you throughout the day wanting to know where you are and what you are doing pay attention. It feels like your being monitored and you are as well as being controlled. When someone wants to tell you that you cannot be friends with a certain person, because they are a bad influence on you, even though you are an adult not a child pay attention.


3.Name Calling

When you are in a relationship, you have a name. That name does not include derogatory remarks or name calling such as “you are so lazy, you are so fat, you are stupid, or you can't do anything right.” This is mentally and emotionally abusive. After awhile it will tear your spirit down. Pay attention. That is not something that you need in your life. Rather look for people that will build you up and that are positive.


4.Worthless

Anyone that makes you feel that you are worthless is not good for you. Do any of the following sound familiar? “ You are so stupid, you are no earthly good, you can't make it without me, or no one will ever want you but me.” That is the lie that they want you to believe. I recall watching “Why Did I get Married” by Tyler Perry. The one woman's husband talked about her so bad and did it jokingly in front of others. He constantly put her down and talked about how big she was. She did feel worthless because of that. But when he divorced her, she found a new husband or rather should I say he found her and he treasured her. He built her up and showed that he loved her and was proud of her. He was positive and she finally had a healthy marriage.

5. Your Fault

When someone is trying to control you, the controller whether a woman or man will always want to make a situation your fault. I recall in a previous abusive marriage I was always trying to fix it, thinking everything was my fault. My co-worker once told me “Betty you could be an angel and nothing you do will ever be good enough.” A phrase that I used to hear most of the time was, “See what you made me do,” or “you need to do this or the relationship will fail.”  Guess What?  The relationship failed anyway. 

6. Pushing or Shoving

When the controller gets mad at whatever, he or she might resort to domestic violence and decide to use you as a punching bag. It might start out with a shove or just pushing you against the wall in his or her fit of anger. Then it gradually may increase to punching you. It is still abuse. Now the abuser may function well at work and in some social settings, but when it comes to you, the abuser feels you are the cause of the problems. The flip of the coin is after he has shoved you or punched you, he wants to make up for it . He may want to bring you flowers. Or the famous words of an abuser is “It will never happen again.” “I have just been under so much pressure at work.” I cannot recall the number of times that I heard that. The abuser has a Dr. Jekyll/Dr. Hyde personality. You just never know which one is coming out sometimes. The reality of all this is, if the abuser has hit you once, he or she will hit you again. Get help before it is too late.


An abusive relationship affects the entire family. Remember your children are watching and learning from you.   

 Note: Invisible Prison

Once you have left the controlling or abusive relationship, fear may possibly keep you in an invisible prison. You may be fearful if you see him sitting in his car on a corner even though you know you have a restraining order. Fear may make you question will he or she abide by these court orders. Stop living in this invisible prison. Those thoughts will imprison you emotionally and mentally. Remember even though you have done everything that you can to be safe, God can give you that perfect inner peace that will calm you when that storm and your circumstances are chaotic. I am a witness to that.

Help

Should you come to the conclusion that you are in a controlling and abusive relationship and you want help to get out. Prepare to remove yourself from that situation and find safety. That is what I did in my previous marriage. I decided enough was enough. I had already felt like I was in prison emotionally. I was tired of that. I left. No, it is not as easy as it sounds but your motivation will be a first step. Do not be afraid of what others will say or think of you. I was surprised that my true friends and family came to my aide and family as well. You may need a restraining order to protect yourself. Because he or she has brained wash you to thinking you cannot do anything, be sure to have a plan B in the event plan A does not succeed. Seek the support of your friends, family, and even pastor for support. Educate yourself about domestic violence.

It may be difficult to admit or even talk about the fact that you were abused, but it does get easier in time. Make your mind up that you will not be part of that statistics that ends in a homicide. Seek the support of your friends, family, and even pastor for support. Educate yourself. There is the 24-hour hotlines such as Crisis Connection 1-800-245-4580 or the National Domestic Violence Hotline 1-800-799-7233.

Bloggers Meet and Greet January, 2019

Hi everyone. I want to talk about something that some of us may have taken for granted. Do you know the importance of deep-breathing? Sometimes you do not realize the importance of air until you have trouble breathing. Do you know who started New Year’s Resolutions?




I recall a lady coming to the counter and she was out of breath. She explained that she uses oxygen. I asked her where was it. She explained she left it at her seat, because she was trying to save what little she had left in it. She made me realize how blessed I was to just be able to breathe without any trouble. Did you know there are so many benefits of deep-breathing? According to skin.com Deep-breathing may help you de-stress, calm you, elevate your mood, pain relief, and much more. Also, they emphasized how deep breathing may promote better sleep, because it relaxes the body.



I can definitely speak from experience about the pain relief. I recall taking classes before delivering my baby. They emphasized the deep breathing. Little did I know at the time how much I would need that and how much it helped. One of my babies started coming so fast the nurses explained there was no time for the epidural that I thought I was going to receive. So it was at that time I really put the deep-breathing to the test.


Also, it is so important to be aware of when you become upset. How do you react? Do you feel yourself getting angry or even sad. Deep-breathing may help you calm down when dealing with those emotions.

Have you tried deep breathing? If not, it is not too late to try it today. Let me know what it does for you.

Did you know that the ancient Babylonias are said to have been the first to make New Year’s resolutions around 4,000 years ago, according to History.com. They further add that in 1740, the English clergyman John Wesley, founder of Methodism, created the Covenant Renewal Service, held on New Year’s Eve also known as watch night services. This included readings from scriptures and hymn singing serving as alternatives to the raucous celebrations normally held.

Have You Been Diagnosed with the Big “D” (Diabetes)?

 7 Things That You Need to Know* * * * * * *

Do you control your Diabetes or does Diabetes control you? Do you know of someone that has diabetes? Although many are living with Diabetes, some can control it with diet. There are healthy alternatives.


What Is Diabetes?

Diabetes not only affects adults, it affects children as well. I know of a couple of children that are living with diabetes and they are taking insulin for this.
1. Diabetes Meaning
Wikipedia.org defines diabetes as Type 1 when the body fails to produce insulin; the person is required to inject insulin into to the body. I recall a relative of mine had that type of diabetes. I remember when the doctor told her she had diabetes. She would give herself her insulin shots. I also recall a friend that would give himself his own shots of insulin not one but several times a day. I could not imagine having to inject myself with a needle, but sometimes there comes a time that you do what you have to do. Wikipedia.org further states that the next type of diabetes is Type 2 where the cells do not use the insulin properly, sometimes called non-insulin dependent diabetes. Taking a pill controls this type of diabetes. If at all possible you want to control the diabetes with diet in order to not have to take insulin injections or pills.

2. Gestational Diabetes
This is when a pregnant woman develops high blood glucose level during pregnancy. I also have personally known of several women that have developed this during pregnancy, but after delivery the diabetes disappeared. I was fortunate during my pregnancy to not develop it even though I gain almost 50 extra pounds during that time. Believe me I felt that weight too, because I could not walk without getting physically tired.


3. High-Fiber Foods
One diabetes tip is to Choose high-fiber, slow release carbs according to Helpguide.org. They further add that carbohydrates have a big impact on blood sugar levels. Some of your choices for the slow release carbs might be sweet potatoes, whole-wheat pasta, raisin bran cereal, oats or rolled-oats, and bran muffin. Personally I just love sweet potatoes, especially when they are baked. Sweet potatoes in salads give great palate pleasure.
4. Symptoms of Diabetes
If you suspect that you may have diabetes, some of the symptoms may include increased thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, blurred vision, slow-healing sores, and high blood pressure. This is according to the Mayo Clinic. I recall my relative drinking RC Colas often and she was urinating often. It was soon after that her doctor told her she had diabetes. Now that I think about it, I remember that she was a very good cook and on the holidays she would cook several cakes and pies. The one particularly cake she would put a lot of butter in it. Just remember that diabetes is serious and you should treat it as such. Do not take it lightly. The choice is yours to control your diabetes and not let it control you.
5. Can You Live with Diabetes?
According to The American Diabetes Association there is no cure for Diabetes, but it can be managed. So you should not feel doom and gloom, because you have a choice. The key is balancing the food you eat with exercise and prescribed medication.
6. No Finger Pricking Machines
How many times have you heard people complain that they hate to prick themselves to check their blood sugar? Well according to Statnews.com FDA has approved a new machine, the Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System, that does not require you to prick your finger to check your blood sugar. Isn’t technology amazing?
Here’s how it works* * *
It uses a small sensor that attaches to your upper arm. You then wave a reader device over it to see the current blood sugar level and changes over the past eight hours.
7. The Cost of FreeStyle Libre
According to Diatribe.org., the Libre units may be purchased at your pharmacy. Although insurance companies Medicaid and Medicare are not available at this time, the out of pocket costs prices may range from $42.99-$96.99, depending on the number of days you want it for and depending on that particular pharmacy. The latter cost is for the one-time purchase.
Note:  As of January, 2018 those with Diabetes 1 or 2 that use insulin with multiple injections per day. or pumps, they state Medicare does now cover.
