    Parenting Tips for Tweens

    Posted on January 31, 2016 @ 10:20 pm

    Tween refers to a stage between childhood and adolescence, aged 9 to 12, no longer a little child but not quite a teenager.  A tween is not yet in the midst of adolescence, soon to face a variety of obstacles including school work, increasing responsibilities and exposure to dangerous behavior of peers and the environment.

    Tween can be a challenge to parents, mood swings from sweet and loving to tough and difficult.  Sometimes, parents get astonish with their ability to conceptualize and argue brilliantly.  However, it can be equated as a stage wherein anything and everything parents feed may result as the food of the brain.

    The biggest danger of tweens is losing the connection to parents while struggling to find their places and connect with their peer world.  On the other hand, parents’ biggest danger is trying to parent through power, instead of, through relationship, thus destroying the bond and losing the influence upon child’s entrance to teen years.

    Display of positive discipline is still the best strategy, setting strong relationship, clear limit, open communication and lots of empathy.  A great relationship is proven through disclosure and assurance of love and affection.  Dining together is a very simple gesture, but very effective.  More frequent tweens eat with the family perform better in school, the happier they say they are and the less likely to get involved with any harmful doings.  Imposition of clear limit is very important, but set it with a loving heart.  Enforce rules and acknowledge their views as well for them to feel being understood.  Communication serves as the bridge to what parents and teens want to discuss, convey and feel, for each other.  Lots of empathy assures their sense of belongingness.

    Tween parenting is tough, but rewarding!

    Securing The Yard

    Posted on @ 12:02 am

    One of the ways that you can add privacy to the yard is with a fence. You can install a wooden or metal fence depending on the design that will match the exterior of the home as well as the rest of the homes in the neighborhood. You don’t want to install a metal fence if there are homes that feature wooden fences or shrubs as this could stand out and look odd among the other houses.

    When you go to a farm supply store, make sure you have the proper measurements so that you get enough panels to build the fence. A Gallagher fence company can come to the home to complete the installation if you don’t have the time or you aren’t sure how to place the components.

    When you have a fence in the yard, it can offer an added sense of security that an animal or an alarm system might not give. You can install a gate with a lock, and if you want to get technological, then you can install a pin pad on the gate so that you have to enter a number before gaining access to the property. This is an idea for larger homes that sit off of the road. You will also be increasing the value of the home after installing the fence.

    If you have neighbors who you don’t talk to or you simply want to have your own world within the neighborhood, then a fence will do the trick. Your children can run and play without the need to worry as much if they are bothering someone in the neighborhood. It’s also a way for you to hold special events, such as birthday parties, without others seeing what you are doing. If you have a swimming pool, then a fence will be a benefit as you don’t want others watching as you or your children in lounging on a chair or playing in the water. Pets can be contained with a fence. They will have a space to run and play without getting in the road or into someone else’s yard.

    Ways to Improve Your Home Interior

    Posted on @ 12:00 am

    Do you like the way the interior of your home looks? If not, you have nobody to blame but yourself. You have the power to improve its appearance. There is really no good excuse to live in a home when you do not like the way it looks. It is really not that difficult to spruce up the appearance of your home’s interior. The best thing about it is the price will not make you file for bankruptcy. The simple fact is that there are a wide variety of ways you can accomplish your goal without spending a lot of money in the process. Here are some of the most effective ways to make the interior of your home look better.

    1. New paint on the walls

    You can never go wrong with a new paint job. Paint has a tendency to fade as the years go by. Therefore, painting the walls would be the smart thing to do if you have just recently moved into a house that is old. You might not have the physical ability or the desire to paint all of the walls yourself. In this situation, you can hire a professional painting company to handle the chore for you. Take some time to carefully consider the colors that you want each room to be painted. This is not a decision you want to make when the painters have already arrived at your house.

    2. Buy some wicker furniture

    You may simply need some additional furnishings to make your home have the interior appearance that you are looking for. Wicker has a timeless appeal that has made it a popular type of furniture for a long time. One of the biggest advantages of wicker furniture is that it always looks good in any type of environment and decoration style it is surrounded by. An example of a great place to buy a wide variety of resin wicker furniture is Wicker Paradise.

    3. Install new carpeting

    At some point, your current carpeting will need to be replaced. There will be no way around it. Having your carpeting professionally cleaned on a regular basis is a great habit to get into. However, there will come a time when even cleaning will not do an adequate job of improving the appearance of your carpet. It is at this time that you should start shopping around to see which types of carpet has an appeal to you.
