 Article Title :: Does Your Teenager Get Enough Sleep?
Many teenagers are sleep deprived. They need a minimum of nine hours sleep, but it seems, many get only 7 ½ hours sleep per night. Sleep cannot be accumulated for the future. A young person can’t sleep for twelves hours to put some hours in the sleep bank. They can, however, sleep for twelve hours when they are sleep deprived.The biological sleeps clock shifts for young people. Up till age 10 kids tend to wake up fresh and ready for the day. For teens their clock has shifted. Many wake up feeling tired and irritable as they sleep clock says they should still be sleeping early in the morning. For most teens there is a ‘forbidden sleep zone’ around 9 or 10 o’clock at night.   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Helping Kids Handle Rejection and Disappointment
"Fall seven times, stand up eight." -Japanese ProverbOne of the keys to functioning socially and emotionally is the ability to deal with disappointment and rejection.Most children experience some type of rejection from their peers throughout childhood. One study found that even popular children were rejected about one quarter of the time when they approached children in school.Most children recover from such rejection. They move on and form constructive, worthwhile relationships but some children need help. They often take rejection personally and blame themselves. As a parent it is useful to challenge children’s unhelpful thinking and encourage them to look for n  (read full article)

 Article Title :: A 5 Step Anger Management Plan for Children
“Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them so much.” Oscar WildeManaging anger is the biggest emotional issue that most children face. Children who can learn to manage their anger have a head start on handling fears and other emotions.Currently, our community is undecided about how to handle anger. In fact, anger is discouraged as we see no place for it in homes, schools or community. ‘Civilised people don’t get angry’ seems to be the accepted wisdom so we tend to encourage children to bottle up anger rather than let it out.There are four ways anger is dealt with and only the fourth one in this list should be considered healthy. These are:1. M  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 10 Ways to Make Your Family Meetings Super Successful
“Not another meeting!”That tends to be the reaction from most kids when they hear the M word mentioned. Meetings tend to be tolerated rather than keenly anticipated in families.Most research supports the notion that parents that use a meeting process experience less sibling fighting and sibling rivalry, and get far greater cooperation from their kids.They effectively turn families from Me-centred to We-centred groups. They are based on the management principle that children like a say in how their family operates and that they are more likely to stick to rules and decisions that they have had a say in making rather than those imposed from above. In many ways, this  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Do You Expect Too Much From Your Kids?
Expectations of children are tricky for parents.Expect too much of children and they may become discouraged as they know they can’t deliver on your expectations.Expect too little and they may well meet your expectations and deliver very little.The key is to keep your expectations just ahead of your children’s capabilities. Let’s explore this notion of expecatrions.Parents frequently ask me when they should begin to develop independence in children. My response rarely varies – we develop independence from the earliest possible age. Toddlers generally want to help out at home and do things for themselves but sometimes in the busyness of life we forget to   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Raising An Only Child
Only children spend much of their early years in the company of adults, so it is not surprising that they tend to develop characteristics that please their elders. Typically they are widely perceived as either precocious or spoilt – both of which are neither desirable nor fair. Only children, like those in ordinal positions, make great kids and adults. Birth order shapes the general trends for children not the fine details.Only children are in the enviable position of never having to compete with a sibling for their parents' attention or any other resource for that matter. Only children don’t have to wait to be heard, share food with a sibling or even sit back and watch an olde  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Child Identification - Thinking of Fingerprinting Your Children?
When speaking to parents about child identification, the first things that come to mind are fingerprints and DNA information. However, there seems to be a complete lack of awareness regarding fingerprints and the crucial need in updating them on a regular basis.Most parents, with the exception of people who have studied medicine or criminology, believe that their children’s fingerprints remain the same from birth to death.We all believe our fingerprints to be as permanent as a tiger’s stripes since they are formed before our birth, while in the womb. Though this is absolutely correct, here is the kicker; children’s fingerprints are actually changing for the first five   (read full article)

 Article Title :: 4 Steps to Help Your Children Make Friends
We all know moving can be traumatic. It is hard. I should know. Making friends for some in a new place can be tough. Other kids adjust quickly to all the changes and make friends easily. All the changes can be tough and friends normally take long. I have been looking into this a bit lately due to our recent move and what our *sniff* sweet kids are going through.1. Friends take time. Give it some time, continually work on friendships. Relax knowing that time is one of the most important aspects of making friends in a new place. Do not make a big deal about this, it is not a huge problem unless you make it one.2. Spend time on the playground. Talk to other moms, and get to kno  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Job Jar
When my four daughters were young, Saturdays became unpleasant and I faced them with dread. Since I worked outside our home, on Saturday, each child would have an assigned job to do. All kind of groans and gripes would surface. “I’m tired of dusting” or “The bathroom tub is the hardest job of all” to “I have the hardest job.”My friend, Nancy suggested the “job jar.” It had worked in her family when she was a child. I listened to her description of the “job jar” with my ears perked. I was willing to try something different.Nancy said that on the designated work day, her mother had “jobs” written on little pieces of paper and folded up so that   (read full article)

 Article Title :: What are the factors that can rule out the presence of ADHD?
What are the Factors that can Rule Out the Presence of ADHD?By George Gallegos, Ph.D. www.youADDitup.comAccording to the American Psychiatric Association’s DSM-IV, ADHD is a disorder that first presents in childhood usually observed before the age of seven years in a child.
