All opinions are 100% my own. 
     As a mom I know kiddos have some big emotions! That is a great thing, as long as they know how to express them. In our home, we have been trying out the Feeling Buddies toolkit to help our children harness some of those big feelings, but still clearly express what they are thinking in that moment. This easy to use kit teaches healthy self-regulation skills for your little one to use in everyday life. 
     The Feeling Buddies for Families Home Edition wasn't just beneficial for our children, but was great for us parents too! The system is designed to help moms, dads, caregivers and loved ones to assist your child in expressing their emotions effectively. The system is great because instead of just reading a book, it is completely interactive. You have the Mini Feeling Buddies with carrying case Helping My Buddies, a Listen to Your Feelings CD, the buddies, and more that goes along with the interactive web coaching series. As a family, we would sit down and watch the series together each night. It gave clear and easy to follow instructions that our children looked forward to. Their favorite were the stuffed "Buddies". These cute little dolls gave our kiddos something tangible to feel when talking about emotions. 
     Since we have a child with Asperger's Syndrome, facial cues are often hard for her to decipher. The dolls were perfect for telling her what disappointed looked like or to ask her to make an anxious face like the buddy. This is an incredible collection for any family like ours who has a little one on the spectrum. It gives your child lessons they can understand about emotions that usually escape them. 
     The Feeling Buddies kit is an invaluable resource for any family. Just in the few short weeks we have been using it, our children have learned to use words to describe their emotions. Our daughter has learned to look for facial cues, just like she sees on the "Buddies". This is an incredible system that every family will learn and thrive because of. Want to learn more?

<![CDATA[5 Ways To Motivate Your Children In Sports]]>Sat, 20 May 2017 00:42:25 GMThttp://nonperfectparenting.com/5/post/2017/05/5-ways-to-motivate-your-children-in-sports.html     Sports can be exhilarating and heartbreaking. Few things are more glorious than winning and more agonizing than losing, especially when the stakes are high. As your child grows up, experiencing both is almost certain - and sometimes, necessary. As the saying goes: “You win some, you lose some”. Although you may feel the urge to protect your children from the pain of losing, they need to be able to go through loss in order to get better.
     Difficult as it is to watch your child lose, your job isn’t to force winning at all costs, but to provide support and motivation no matter what happens. Be there when it matters and give them some extra help where they need it.
1. Encourage Them With Healthy Competition
One of the best ways to improve at a sport is to play against people who are better and more experienced. Although it can be heartbreaking to watch your child go against bigger, stronger opponents, this ultimately drives them to do better in the future.
That said, it is important to always keep competition healthy. Once the desire to win overtakes fair play, that’s already taking competition too far.
Looking for an added boost? Rally the team with custom made socks from Strideline. Creating team unity, both visual and emotional, can do wonders for your little athlete’s esteem.
2. Understand What Motivates Them
Each child ticks differently. Some respond to tough love and others to gentle prodding. Whatever the case may be, understanding your child is key to helping their development. Knowing what motivates your child allows you to give them the support they need, where they need it.
3. Reward Them For Milestones
Each milestone should be rewarded with a celebration. It doesn’t have to be an elaborate party or an expensive gift; something simple is enough. Rewards are more than just the things you give, they’re symbols of your support and assurance. That first home run or championship trophy? Cherish it. If your kids feel that their achievements matter, they’ll be more motivated to succeed.
Not sure what gift to get your kid? Check out Strideline for some cool custom socks they can style up with their uniforms.
4. Help Them Visualize Their Goals
Studies show that visualization can boost performance and aid in skills development. Encourage your children to set goals and to visualize them. Whether it’s scoring a goal or winning the MVP or simply staying in shape, goals can help keep your kids on the right track. Plus, they’ll be more conscious of their improvement and development.
Not sure if visualization works? Sporting greats like Michael Phelps and Tiger Woods swear by it.
5. Be Their Number 1 Fan
Nothing lifts up a child more than a healthy support system. Your children need to be reassured of your support in every step of the way. Show them that their sport is just as important to you as it is to them by attending games, participating in their development, and simply being there when they most need it, especially when they lose.
As a parent, it is your responsibility to be present as your child grows up. Cheer them on, give them nuggets of wisdom, help them get the coaching and training they need. The more present you are, the more your children will be motivated to do well. Just don’t be the parent who complains to the coaches and heckles the referees.
Getting your children to commit to sports helps them develop into well-rounded and healthy individuals. To make sure they stay on their path, you, as a parent, need to provide the motivation and support they need.

<![CDATA[Doing The Best For Your Child's Education]]>Fri, 19 May 2017 20:55:42 GMThttp://nonperfectparenting.com/5/post/2017/05/doing-the-best-for-your-childs-education.html     There isn't a parent in the world that wants their child to perform poorly academically. Every parent the world over wants success for that child and for the most part that means success at school, college and university. Success can come from a variety of places, and some of the most successful business people worldwide will tell you that they learnt more outside of school 'in the real world' than they did hitting the books at school. No matter what though, education be it at school, home or further education in college and university is dramatically important for most children, if not all and will be the foundation of any success that they hope to achieve in later life.
     Education isn't just the job of schools, tutors and teachers though. Your own actions will have a large effect on your child's development and education. How do you start helping your kids out when it comes to education? How do you do your best to help their learning and growth? Well, firstly - you need to understand your child and their goals. In school, this knowledge can help your child decide between school subjects - they might want to prioritise certain subjects that might be important to achieving their goals. Of course, there are certain subjects that will always need to be covered to give your child the best chance in life. An understanding of literacy and numeracy will help you child calculate and communicate. These skills are valuable throughout life and are the foundation of any success in academia or in the workplace.
     How do you encourage a child to learn? Well, offering rewards for meeting educational milestones and goals can help encourage your child to succeed in education. Offering rewards for positive involvement, good grades or anything else positive in education can help them succeed. Set the bar high, though as an abundance of rewards can have a negative effect on the development of a child. Make a system and stick to it. You don't necessarily need to inform the child of the existence of a reward system, but they will respond well to being rewarded for success. A reward system that works will help your child succeed and encourage them to carry on succeeding and developing their skills. A reward system doesn't have to focus on material goods, but can be praised based as well. Learning should be made fun - and it can be through sites like https://blog.stay-a-stay-at-home-mom.com/2017/01/09/abcya-online-interactive-learning-games/ and reward systems that help develop education.
     The thing is - education is important, but it only makes up a portion, albeit large portion, of childhood. You know how the saying goes ‘all work, but no play…’ The secret to success with education is balance. A child needs to enjoy themselves and learn how to enjoy their education. This cannot happen with a sole focus on learning and development and this won’t be good for a child’s development at all. They need to have fun to flourish and you’d do well as a parent to remember that.

<![CDATA[Marketing Your Mom-And-Child Business Venture]]>Fri, 19 May 2017 20:35:26 GMThttp://nonperfectparenting.com/5/post/2017/05/marketing-your-mom-and-child-business-venture.html
      There are many ways to bond with your children. It’s not even necessary to go on extensive holidays and invest in a huge adventure to do so. In fact, the best parts of raising children are free. However, if you’ve found that your child has an inclination for the entrepreneurial side of life, this might be a great way to help educate them about the world of business transactions.
     It might be a lemonade stand, home baked treats or painting and decorating people’s furniture. Investing time in a little idea can help you guys connect more, and become tighter as a family unit. It will also stimulate their imagination, help them be more confident around strangers, and understand the value of earning your money. It’s a great way to help divide the profits and give them a sizable allowance, or even save for their college fund.
     Whatever your motivation, running a small side-hustle with your child can be a fruitful experience. But once you’ve set up your endeavor, and have the baked goods ready, how do you find people in your local neighborhood to buy what you’re selling?
Well, you can use these helpful tricks:
Door To Door Sales
     Bringing your product to sample or a portfolio of your design work door-to-door is a great way to engage with your local community, and adds a nice personal touch. The local residents are much more likely to engage with you in a positive way if they feel like they were worth the effort to be sold to. This method also works well due to a general social rule: people want to get on with their neighbors. They’ll no doubt at least pretend to be interested if you’re polite and courteous, and don’t demand anything from them.
     It will also help if you seem passionate about what you’re doing. Show them this was your child’s idea, and let the excitement of childhood shine through. Furthermore to the general social rule listed above, people usually want to be considered nice and respectful towards your children. This might help you with your sales, and enthuse your child about the wonders of building positive relationships. If they become a high flier in the corporate world, they’ll fall back on this experience in more ways than you might think. That might seem like a flight of fantasy, but it’s really not. Helping your child form a go-getter attitude with the emphasis on fun will help them grow into a dynamic, thoughtful and happy person.
A Stand
     If you’re selling nourishing drinks or food items, why not make a stand? The old cliche of a child lemonade stand holds up because it works. It’s also a great way to display your creations and get creative with your display. If you’re in a populated neighborhood, this is a fantastic way to draw interest. People are more likely to kowtow to a child’s business venture, so be sure to give them pride of place. This is a great time for a photo opportunity to promote your little business through:
Social Media Pages
     First, be responsible. Pictures of your children on the internet are not to be recommended, especially through a public page. Instead, taking pictures of the stand, or creation process of your saleable items. You can localize your small business to only be viewable in your immediate area or state, which is ideal if you’re selling from your home. Building a solid follower basis will also help you celebrate your growth with your child from a secure place.
WOM Marketing
     If you’re succeeding in sales, and you’d like to take it to the next level, you should consider WOM (Word of Mouth) Marketing. Providing your products to be reviewed by consumers such as bzzagent will help natural communication of your activities among a wide crowd of like-minded people. To see how you could fit in, or to become a consuming reviewer yourself, check out this bzzagent review from surveyssay. This could also be a great way to promote your social media accounts.
Auction Houses
     Placing your items on online marketplaces such as eBay will allow you to market your products even further. This won’t work for food items but can work for the homemade products. Sometimes a product with a little bit of love and affection from a mother and child is more important to a buyer than something flashy. This will work well for painted furniture, wicker baskets or similar items.
     In summary, the emphasis here should be providing fun for your child, using an activity that will help you bond. Even if you’re selling well, if your child isn’t enjoying the process anymore, there’s no point to the whole deal. Keep your maternal instincts in check, and you’re sure to have a great time together, making memories you’ll both keep for some time.

<![CDATA[Cutting Costs On Your Wedding Is A Piece of Cake]]>Fri, 19 May 2017 20:27:52 GMThttp://nonperfectparenting.com/5/post/2017/05/cutting-costs-on-your-wedding-is-a-piece-of-cake.html
     Getting married isn’t cheap. Whilst you can shop around for the cheapest registry office, invite no guests and get married in casual clothes, most of us want out special day to be special which means keeping onto all the traditions and hosting a ceremony and party to remember. Fortunately, there are ways to still have all the bells and whistles without spending a fortune. Here’s how…
Timing is everything
     The time you choose to get married can really affect the cost. Summer is peak season because of the better chances of good weather. However, you could save $40 to $50 per guest by getting married in the off-peak season from December to March. Weekends are also pricier. Get married on a Thursday night and you could spend 20% less. Another alternative is a Sunday morning – why not opt for a lavish wedding brunch over a dinner and save 30% on catering costs.
Find reasonably priced rings
     Wedding rings can be an expensive oversight. Some couples will try and match the grandeur of the engagement ring. For others, an engagement ring can be a time for bringing on the bling, whilst a wedding ring can a time for something a little more subtly classy. Tungsten carbide can be an affordable alternative to gold and silver that still has a sophisticated shine to it. You’ll find an amazing selection of Tungsten wedding bands for women online. Tungsten is also a great ring material for men. Another great option is ceramic.
Be frugal with flowers
     Many couples can go overboard on the flowers. Having a few big impressive centrepieces rather than adorning every table and corner could have more of an impact on your guests and cost less. Carnations and roses are some of the most cost-effective options you can buy when it comes to flowers. Wedding florists will often try to sway you to experiment with rarer and more expensive options – unless you really adore these flower choices, stand your ground or you could spending a fortune on your floral décor.
Don’t blow out on food and drink
It’s easy to spend a lot on food and drink. Buffet meals are much cheaper as they cut out the cost of waiting staff. Another creative option is to have chefs cook at the table – not only does it cut out the waiting staff costs but it also makes the meal more interactive. Putting money behind the bar can be a great treat and incentive for more guests to come, but you can take steps to limit which drinks are available on the open bar to stop guests ordering the priciest drinks. As for the cake, consider adding faux layers to make it look bigger - but actually contain less cake and work out cheaper.


Use your network


Who you know can be very useful when it comes to wedding planning. Do you have a friend or family member that really want to get into photography? You could get them to take a few snaps and save a lot of money. Do you have an uncle or a cousin with DJ experience? Why not get them to handle the evening’s music setlist.

<![CDATA[What To Look For When Buying Your First Family Home]]>Fri, 12 May 2017 19:43:39 GMThttp://nonperfectparenting.com/5/post/2017/05/what-to-look-for-when-buying-your-first-family-home.html     You and your partner have started a family, and you’ve living in a shared apartment. You might already have given birth to your first child, or you’re expecting a new one on the way. It’s been your plan for some time to move out of your current living space and into something more fitting and spacious. One day, you hit the magic number and finally saved up enough money to get out of your cramped surrounding and buy your first family home.
     It’s a daunting task as this will be your biggest single expenditure in your lives. One possible reason keeping you from moving out is that fact that you don’t want to risk moving out and then regret it. Perhaps your worries are misplaced? Sometimes what fuel indecision or procrastination is because you’re unsure what to do. And doubt can be the underlying factor of your hesitation. All you need is a little education. A guide that will show you what to look for when buying your first family home.
Finances
Mortgages

The hunt is on. Finding the best mortgage rates requires a lot of snooping around. Depending on your proposed household income, rates will vary from company to company. Some firms will give you an outrageously high quote, and others will offer you a much lower quote. It feels like you’re being taken for a ride, but different companies have their own set standards. The trick is to be persistent when looking for the right deal; it won’t just fall into your lap. Be gutsy, negotiate during an assessment meeting with a firm that suits your needs, because by even just leveraging a half a percentage point lower, that could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. As you’re a couple, you’ll be most likely be buying the mortgage with a credit union.
Insurance

You’ll want to buy homeowner's insurance too. For insurance, you must take an opposite philosophical view to that of obtaining a mortgage. The cheapest option isn’t necessarily the best option. By default, the most affordable policy covers the fewest options. You want to ensure all your valuables and taking this route, will end in a fruitless pursuit. But as the old saying goes, pennies make the dollars. To avoid being fleeced, actually value each item in your home one by one. This method keeps the price as low as possible while still retaining the tools to give you good insurance coverage.
Home inspection
An appraisal is not an approval
So, you’ve found what looks like your dream home. But looks can be deceiving so take this advice and put your emotions on the backburner for a minute. Don’t trust an appraisal, as this is just a face-value assessment and estimation of what the property is worth. While on a tour of the house, If you feel you’re being taken for a ride, or something just isn’t right, ask to have some alone time with your partner so you can wander off and check things out for yourselves. Inspect for cracks in the ceiling, rat or mouse droppings, all the appliances are in working order, structural strength integrity and the condition of the walls is up to scratch.
Situational tolerances
Even if some things are not up to par, they're able to be bypassed. If all the other boxes are ticked, but a few situational concerns remain, consider the following. If you’re buying a home in a flood-prone area, all is not lost. It depends on what location your potential home is built on. It may be listed in an area prone to flooding, but if it's built on a hill, the property is in the all clear. On the other hand, modern hazardous water flow preventions may be in place in the area, such as irrigation ditches, series of small dams or separate flow channels that can be activated but remain dormant for most of the year. If your heart is really set on a property in such a location, there are dedicated professionals that cleanup standing water immediately.
Child suitable
Floor plan
Your newborn has just come into your lives, or perhaps your children are already in their early childhood. Review the floor plan of your chosen property. If your child is going to be downstairs for the most part and you want to keep an eye them, a clear open floor would be best, so they’re never out of your sight or peripheral vision.
Infrastructure
Many parents overlook the need for their children to play. So ask yourself, is the yard space large enough for your kids to play on? Playing is just as important as education when growing up. Before you decide where to settle, search and review the local infrastructure. Speaking of education, what kind of schools are there near your chosen home? Check what the grade average is of the surrounding schools before making up your mind altogether. The same for doctor surgeries. God forbid an accident may befall someone in your immediate family, if a local doctor or hospital is close by, injuries of life-threatening circumstances can be quickly dealt with.
The neighbors
What are the neighbors like and does that matter to you? If they harbor a large dog that is vicious or hostile to strangers? If so, that throws a spanner into the works. Should both parents start to work to pay off loans etc. What route can your children take walking to school? These are all questions you must factor into your decision-making. Think about every possibility you can; before committing to the buy.
Choosing your first family home is a daunting and scary task. But it can also be a wonderful, exciting experience, once you have all your ducks in line. The key to abating fears and hesitation is to do the proper research. Take your time, as this will be the largest purchase you’re ever to make in your life. Emotions should not play a part in picking the right home as practicality trumps an impulsive attachment to a property.

<![CDATA[How to Keep Your Family Healthy When Your Child is Sick]]>Sat, 06 May 2017 00:17:09 GMThttp://nonperfectparenting.com/5/post/2017/05/how-to-keep-your-family-healthy-when-your-child-is-sick.html     Parents know that the flu can spread like wildfire from one child to another as soon as it’s entered the house. Dealing with one sick family member is challenging enough. Try to stop illness in its tracks and keep the rest of your family healthy by acting fast to isolate the germs, clean up your house, and encourage good habits for everyone under your roof.
Create a Separate Sick Space
Keep sick children isolated from others in the house as much as possible. Create a cozy recovery room for them, bringing books, movies, and other entertainment into their bedroom to encourage them to stay in bed and avoid too much mingling. Consider serving meals on a tray in their room and discourage leaving drinks or dishes around, as children may accidentally spread germs by picking up one another’s cups and utensils.

Create a wellness basket with everything your child needs to recover, including a thermometer, tissues, water bottles, and snacks. Set up a separate waste basket for dirty tissues and dispose of these as soon as they begin to accumulate, so the germs don’t have time to spread further.

Disinfect the House 

 Germs can linger on just about every surface imaginable. Do all you can to sanitize the house when a family member is sick. Make sure every bathroom is stocked with hand soap and paper towels. Keep hand sanitizer stationed liberally throughout the house as well.

Use a disinfectant cleaner on everything from your tables and counters to faucet handles, door knobs, television remotes, computers, and phones. Clean daily to keep germs at bay.

Clean Up Your Air
 

 Airborne germs are some of the most difficult to fight. You can’t see them, so it’s easy to forget that they’re there. You can make sure your standard HVAC system is working as efficiently as possible during this time by throwing away the old air filter and replacing it with a fresh clean one. An air purifier will take your efforts to the next level, helping you kill microscopic germs and allergens.

Serve a Healthy Diet
Serve your family a healthy diet that will help support their immune systems with vitamin-rich fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C is particularly important. You can get this in citrus fruits like oranges, tangerines, lemons, and limes as well as red bell peppers. Broccoli is a powerful pick for immunity as well with ample A, C, and E vitamins, while spinach offers a nice combo of both A and C.

Include daily multivitamins for added support and encourage everyone to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water. Give each member of the family his or her own personal water bottle, so it’s easy to keep this essential drink on hand without accidentally sharing sips.

Though the occasional cold or flu bug is inevitable, there are many things that you can do to prevent the sickness from spreading. Keep sick family members out of school or work, at home, and away from others as much as possible until they’re better to keep illness isolated.

<![CDATA[Give Him Something Cool for Father’s Day]]>Fri, 05 May 2017 17:05:46 GMThttp://nonperfectparenting.com/5/post/2017/05/give-him-something-cool-for-fathers-day.html
     Father’s Day is on the horizon – mark June 18th on your calendar – so if you want to get ahead of the game and buy the dads in your life something special, it’s time to start thinking about picking the perfect gift.
     I know choosing a gift that the men in your life will truly love can be tricky, especially if you want to get them something special, which is why I’ve put together a list of some of the best Father’s Day 2017 gifts. Check them out if you want to ensure that you give him something cool this Father’s Day…
Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses
Want something cool to give a young daddy? Want it to be something he really won’t be expecting? Plump for a cool pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses, which will make him feel like a movie star. The great thing about Ray-ban Wayfarer sunglasses is that they are always in fashion and they can be worn with any style. One thing’s for sure; he’ll be the coolest dad on the block if you give him this gift on Father’s Day.
Fishing Equipment
     For many people, Father’s Day conjures up memories of fishing with their dads when they were kids. If your children haven’t been lucky enough to have this experience yet, get them to give their daddy a couple of fishing rods, bait and anything else they’ll need and take him out to the lake for a fishing trip none of you will ever forget.
A New Barbecue

Does dad love nothing more than to show off his skills at the grill? Treat him to a brand new barbecue with all the mod-cons, and he’ll be in his element cooking up a Father’s Day brunch for the family.
New Sneakers
If the father in your life is the sporty type, buying him a brand new pair of Nike’s with all the latest technology to boost performance will light up his face with delight on Father’s Day morning. You could even start a new family tradition by having the kids slip on their sneakers for a family run, too.
Scotch Whiskey
     Does dad like the finer things in life? Treat him to a fine bottle of Scotch whiskey, and perhaps a box of cigars and let him celebrate his day in style.
A Gold Bracelet
     If he’s a snappy dresser with an interest in fashion, ensure that dad gets what he wants this year by purchasing him a mens gold bracelet By Frost Nyc. He’ll love being able to show it off with his best suit, and it’s a gift that will last him a lifetime.
Something Homemade
If you and your kids like to crafts, what could be better than helping them make something special for daddy on his most important day of the year? There are countless projects from making homemade cards to knitting socks that you can get involved in as a family, and it’ll be all the more special for dad knowing how much thought and effort has gone into his gift.
A Supercar Driving Experience
     If dad is all about fast cars, he will be over the moon when the kids present him with a voucher for his very own supercar driving experience, especially if he’s been expecting socks and aftershave. He’ll have the time of his life driving a Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche around a real-life racing track like he’s Lewis Hamilton and you’ll all love seeing him have so much fun.
Hot Sauce
     If he loves his food spicy, buy the father in your life a gift set of the finest hot sauces around. He’ll get a kick out of trying them out, testing his mettle and challenging the rest of you to see who can handle the hot stuff better than the rest.
A Retro Games Console
     Want to hit him up with some nostalgia and get daddy and kids having some fun together on Father’s day? Buy him a retro NES games console, and he’ll be in his element showing the kids the kind of computer games he used to play when he was their age, challenging them to game-off and remembering his youth.
A Beard Care Kit
Does dad have a beard? Treat him to a beard care kit, which contains lots of lovely products to keep his beard clean, soft and tidy. After all, dads deserve to be pampered too.


Do you have a dad in your life? What will you and the kids be buying him for Father’s Day?
