Is your Child under STRESS?

Childhood is believed to be stress free. We think that children do not experience stress. The bad news is that we are wrong. Children worry a lot although the causes of their tension might be trivial for us. Competition is stiff these days. Children have to compete with their classmates to get good marks, to become the football/basketball captain, or even to impress the most beautiful girl/guy in the class! Therefore, your child must have the skills to deal with such situations.

Children, especially young ones, have the habit of keeping things to themselves unless probed. Moreover, they expect their parents to ‘understand’ their problems on their own. Sometimes, kids are too scared to express their issues to their parents. How to deal with all this? Doctors say that if children develop this habit of not expressing their problems, they grow up as individuals having low self-confidence.

There are numerous ways to help your child in this context. Reflect on the questions given below:

Do you listen to your Child?

Many times, parents ignore what their children are saying. This can make kids feel ignored. Kids do not speak like adults- concise and to the point. Instead, they speak in long sentences. It takes a little patience to understand their problems. Do not interrupt while your child is speaking something. Let him complete his point and then speak. A word of advice- Do not be judgmental.

Do you Show Interest?

Children would not like talking to someone who does not show interest in their stories and conversations. Hence, parents should express their interest while talking to their kids.

Do you motivate your Child?

When was the last time you pat the back of your child? Even animals love being loved and motivated, let alone humans. The next time your child scores in a football match, make sure you pat his back and buy him a piece of chocolate.

Is your Child your Friend?

Children hesitate expressing their problems in front of someone whom they do not know properly. Many parents unintentionally create a distance from their kids due to lack of time or ignorance. Ensure that you spend some time daily with your child. Take him to a baseball game or a movie. Read him a bedtime story. Talk to him over dinner. The idea is to make your child feel comfortable with you.

Do you interact with teachers?

Often, parents do not talk to their kid’s teachers. Next to home, children spend the most time at school. It can be a possibility that teachers can tell you about some trait of your child that you haven’t noticed. Never miss attending parents-teachers meet or annual days. Occasions like these allow parents and teachers to interact with each other in order to find out better ways of teaching kids.

Do you have pets?

Studies have shown that children who have pet animals like dogs and cats at their homes are more affectionate to others. Keeping a dog, for example, can help develop compassion, kindness and love ion your child.

Stress Management is not an overnight affair. It takes years to develop this. Why to delay?

Paying Attention For Success

TB Wright The One Penny Millionaire!(tm)

There is a success we can attain that goes far beyond simple material success. This deep of success is attained only through the giving up our attachment to being "right" about all the illusions we have surrounding what it means to be successful. In the online seminar I do with participants, we work a lot on processes that assist us in giving up the energy wasting practice of attachment. Attachment to illusions usually! Once we claim this energy that we already have, and are already using, back again, we can then designate its use toward the achievement of goals other than ones that are impossible to accomplish, such as trying to make an illusion real. Let's instead, make our dreams real!

Ask anyone, and they will certainly tell you their answer as to what it means to lead a successful life, and if anyone asks you, you might even come up with a few choice details yourself. If there are six billion or more people on the planet, and each one of them has very specific formulas for what constitutes success, then who is right? The obvious answer is that they all are. How can this be so? Pay attention, be here now, and focus here: they are all right because for each and every one of them, it isn't in achieving the details that they believe will make them successful, that make them a success, it's in the feel of it that any one of them attains success. What does this mean?

What this means is that we are hard wired to believe that success is somehow outside of ourselves, (another illusion) and since so many billions of details exist outside of ourselves, every single person on the planet can make up a new game for which the achievement of a certain combination of details adds up to their feeling successful. I know I do this, and there isn't anyone who I know who doesn't. But just because we all do something, doesn't mean that there isn't a place to aim for that evolves beyond where we are now at. Why desire to evolve? We desire to evolve because anyone with any sort of compassionate heart can easily look around them, and observe that the human race has an enormous potential that it just isn't using right now. Maybe even, that it's ever used. War, crime, hatred, racism, makewrong, judgments, complaints, lack of integrity, lying, deceit, and billions of people living disconnected from their own body-mind-heart triad that is so important to the living of a whole, complete, life, a life that is quite within reach of any one of us, because it's a life that exists within each one of us. We live this life when we drop away any attachment to our many illusions as we shift our energy over from what doesn't work, to what does work, for the achievement of our greatest and highest good.

We live this life when we walk, work, and wend our way around the paths we have chosen for our lives, how they turn out and burn out, in every moment that we live. To so live isn't to live anything different from what we're living right now, but to live with all of what we're living right now. All of what we desire, and do not desire. To live all of life, as messy as it gets, which means to work to close the gap between life as it is, and life as we would like it to be. We close the gap through telling the truth about how it is, and then committing to how we would then like it to be. Why do this? Because to live that authentic a life, to live life more and more of our time on Earth in the moment, is to live truth. Truth is, all of us are born with one life, not knowing where we came from and not really knowing where we are going, with endless speculation on each of these areas, speculation designed to make us feel better about what is inevitable. Feel better about what is inevitable? Hold on there! What craziness have we so bought into, that we have worked ourselves up into a froth over resisting through so many colorful distractions, what's inevitable anyway! Distractions of entertainment, war, anger, upset, makewrong, finger pointing, complaints, and any and all preoccupations that get between us, and really paying attention to our lives; what they are, what they feel like, where we are, and where we are heading. Fear, the ever present companion of modern man, may have taken over our hard wiring, for whatever reasons we have allowed it to dominate and control us, but that doesn't mean that we have to leave it in charge, not once we discover this truth.

Truth is, given our enormous potential for living evolved lives based on love, not fear, we all have this potential for being hugely successful, and right now. Truth is, there really is only one success we desire and only one: to feel better and better than we now feel in this present moment, regardless of how we feel. Including ecstatic! Just think about it. What happens when something extremely joyful occurs out of the blue for us? We immediately want more of how that feels. Given this is our hard wired relationship to success, we might as well live life as it is, and accept all the truths related to that, and all other inevitable facts, and then seek to be, do, and have, that which will allow us to live the richest lives possible emotionally. Because after all, that emotional richness, the feeling better in each now moment, is the real thing we desire as successful human beings, and so is what we are truly after. Not the relationships, not the cash, and not the accolades. Whew! Did that upset you? I know finding out about this initially upset me!

But we don't have to stay upset over the truth. Because the good news relating to this authentic of success, is that right now, in this moment, if we pay close enough attention to our thoughts, our desires, and our actions, the realization that feeling better and better can occur, and that it's an inside job, will dawn on us. The wholly immutable fact that we can evolve right now is so in front of our faces, that most people, if not all, miss this fact, and all the time. Think of it like the Earth. It's so present under our feet, such an accepted fact of life, so taken for granted, that it's taken many generations for us to simply become aware that yes, we live on it, and that, yes, our actions do affect the quality of our lives upon it. Whew, again!

So what does all this have to do with our success? The thing is this. If we are conscious of the real reasons we seek relationship, money, family, love, fame and fortune, which is to in any one now moment, to feel better than we are now feeling, regardless of how we feel, then the option of pursuing these things with a joyful heart opens up for us. And in pursuing the accomplishment of the details of our lives with a joyful heart, all that we do becomes that which we can then call successful, because we will be already feeling good about ourselves as we go along simply living our lives, rather than pointing to some chimera out there and labeling it as that which will make us feel better some day. Because the second truth is, it won't. Anything out there won't, because the second we attain anything, oh, yes, maybe a little longer than a second at times, we will want something else. And that's what it means to be a human being. Yet if we consider success being to fulfill our immutable desire to feel good inside about ourselves, first, then our journey becomes not a seeking after that which fulfills, but a living out of that which in and of itself, is fulfilling. In every second, right here and right now, of every moment that we live. And then there you go, authentic real success, and best of all, right now! Here's to yours!

How To Find Work At Home Job Options

Do you wish to work at home? Well, this is a question which will undoubtedly be answered positively by most of the people who are currently stuck with their regular office jobs. It is so because while working at home, there is no boss to supervise your work. Again, these jobs enable you to work according to your convenience. That’s why more and more people are adopting them as their major income source worldwide. However, there are some people who claim that these jobs are scams. If you really wish to avoid such circumstances, given below are some guidelines which you must keep in mind.

Overcome The Misconceptions

Usually, online jobs are considered as an immense source of income
for everyone, but the fact is that they are not the same. However, those who are completely dedicated towards their work are still making the most out of these jobs. Therefore, forget the rumor that these jobs offer you higher payouts and that too without putting lots of efforts from your side.

Check Whether Your Talent Is Viable

When it comes to evaluate the fact what you can do easily, most of the people find themselves ready with a huge list. But, are they all correct at their end? Absolutely not! It may be possible that you are an out of the box person and that’s why you can do many of the work more precisely such as cooking food, writing, painting etc. But, do all of them hold importance in online market? Surely not! Therefore, try to find out your talent which is feasible with these online jobs.

Get Known To The Market Conditions

During the past few years, recession ruined the economy all across the world. Due to this phase of economy, many people lost their jobs. But, still there were some people who were successful in saving their jobs as they were quite familiar with the market situations. The same stands for these online jobs. Make sure the job opportunity that you are interested in depends how much on the market conditions. It will provide you a rough estimate of the scope of your job and how limited it is.

Have Faith In Yourself

Now, this is a point which requires you to have some patience. In current tough economical conditions, it is possible that you may not acquire proper work at home opportunities initially. But it doesn’t mean there is no ray of hope. The internet is full of money for you to grab. The only thing you need to do is to do proper research before jumping into the online jobs.

What Is Homeschooling

The term 'homeschooling' basically refers to the process in which one or more children of not more than 2 families are instructed by parents or legal guardians, or a member of either household. The laws that define homeschooling vary from State to State. The legal requirements for establishing a homeschool also vary with the State.

For most children, the actual process of learning begins much before school. Many children already know their alphabets, the names of animals, colors and other more complicated stuff before they reach school. This is mostly due to the hard work of a member of the family who has taken the time to teach the child. Homeschooling is just a natural progression from here. Instead of sending their children to a public school, parents make their own curriculum and teach their children in ways that best suit the child. This is homeschooling, in its most simplistic form.

Before you decide to go in for homeschooling, there are certain important matters for consideration. First off, meet with parents of other homeschoolers. Find out the pros and cons of homeschooling. Then ask yourself why you would want to adopt this method. This is a very important aspect, as the success of the program depends on the clarity and sincerity of your purpose.

Next, it is time to consider the expenses of homeschooling. It may cost anywhere between a few hundred dollars to a few thousand every year. More importantly, you are also effectively shutting out any job opportunity for one of the parents. It is only obvious that one parent will have to stay at home full time to manage the homeschool. A home-based business however is a great alternative.

Are you qualified to take on homeschooling for your children? Teaching is a continuation of your own learning process. With the advent of the internet, information is aplenty. There are various books and resources for those interested in homeschooling. Go through the various methods of homeschooling and choose one that is most suited to you. It helps if you know what kind of learning style your child has. Also, find out what your child feels about homeschooling before you start.

Every state has its own laws regarding homeschooling. For instance, in North Carolina, you must first file a 'Notice of Intent' to start a home school. In this you have to mention if the school is a 'Private church' school or a 'qualified non-public school'. The persons providing the education are required to have at least a high school diploma. You have to maintain an annual record of the child's attendance and disease immunization. Every year, the child is required to undergo a standardized test. Each student attending the eleventh grade has to take a nationally standardized test. These are the requirements in North Carolina, but it is enough to give you a good idea of what homeschooling entails.

Homeschooling may seem like a lot of fun and freedom from the outside. However, things are seldom as simple as they seem. Homeschooling is a lot of added responsibility and hard work. But, if successful, it will forge a strong bond of love and respect between parent and child, while providing your child with the best form of education he needs.
