Co-Creator of Berenstain Bears Passes Away

Are you familiar with the children books called Berenstain Bears?

I have quite a few of these books at home and my children loves it. Jan and Stan Berenstain created those books and the stories teaches values in a wonderful way. Children read about how the Bear family deal with common family problems such as eating healthy, telling the truth, cleaning up your messy room, stopping bad habits like nail biting, sibling rivalry etc....

Well, the sad news is Jan Berenstain recently passed away last Friday at age 88. It is reported that she had a severe stroke. Her husband Stan passed away in 2005.

So, will there be anymore Berenstain Bear books?
Sure there will. Their children will continue to run the business. Their son Mike had been working with his mother as an illustrator. Another son Leo, is a writer and takes care of the business side of things.

Well, I hope they keep those books coming. It is a joy to read and has given me inspiration and ideas on how to handle certain parenting problems.

Rest In Peace Jan Berenstain! And many thanks for the wonderful stories.

One of the best way to teach your children values is by reading stories that promote it. It is not nagging or a lecture. It doesn't attack them. They enjoy the stories and when you read it over and over again, the lesson will eventually stick in their head and heart.

Do You Have A Confession Mom?

I came across this article titled "The Secret Lives of Moms: 10 Funny Confessions". It's a list of different moms confessing to their parenting "sins".

No matter how perfect we try to be, they will be times when we let our guard down or choose to close one eye (or maybe both) on certain situations. Some people read the confessions and are appalled. Some read and smile an empathetic smile.

Every mother has challenges, fears, anxiety, frustrations and struggles. We deal with it the best we can.

SOOOOOO... would you like to confess? Let me share some of mine.
  • I've compiled a playlist of videos for toddlers on Youtube . They are videos to keep my little 2 year old occupied while I prepare lunch. So yes, I use Youtube as my babysitter.
  • If I'm reading to any of my children and I know they aren't paying attention, I will skip lines and maybe pages. Why waste time reading to the wall :) Sometimes they catch me doing it though. Which is good coz' then I know they are listening.
  • I wait until my kids are asleep before I help myself to goodies like ice cream and junk food.
  • I threaten to throw away their toys (or whatever) if they don't put them away... but I don't have the heart to do it coz' it's like throwing away money. I don't know if I can be like that father on Youtube that put bullets into his daughter's laptop. 
  • I reprimand my kids if they don't bath in the morning but sometimes, I get so busy doing house chores I forget to bath too.
Okay, what are some of your mommy confessions?

Anyway, if you want the recipe, you'll find it here.

Conquer childhood obesity with tips for healthy family living

(ARA) - Today, health professionals encourage parents of even very young children to actively confront the childhood obesity epidemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention find that obesity rates for children ages 2 to 5 have more than doubled over the past 30 years, and The White House Task Force on Obesity reports that more than half of obese children became obese by their second birthday.

"With the obesity epidemic looming large, it's absolutely crucial for parents to instill healthy habits right from the start," says Dr. Laura Jana, pediatrician and award-winning parenting author. "While this may seem like a tremendous responsibility for those still adjusting to diapers, play dates and the many other demands of new parenthood, it's not hard to help children grow up healthy by committing to some simple yet important lifestyle changes."

Jana recommends some tips:

Downsize your plate, upsize the veggies.

An easy way to cut down on unhealthy eating is to use a smaller plate. Portion sizes are now two to five times larger than in years past, and studies have shown that the bigger the serving dish, the bigger the serving is likely to be. "The more we heap on our children's plates, the more likely we are to unintentionally encourage them to overeat. Avoiding large plates can help you avoid serving supersized meals," Jana says.

What belongs on that healthier-sized plate? The USDA MyPlate program recommends making half your plate fruits and vegetables and the other half protein and grains. Other important recommendations include serving fat-free or low-fat (1 percent) milk to children older than 2, choosing lower-sodium foods and skipping sugary drinks. This simple, fresh-plated picture-of-nutritional-health program even comes with online tools to create a customized food plan for your little one.

Swap screen time for playtime.

Young children thrive and learn best through interacting with others and playing with real objects in their environment. While watching TV may be fun and entertaining, or even appear to be educational, the American Academy of Pediatrics reports it does not support learning for children younger than 2. In fact, evidence suggests that screen time may interfere with young children's healthy development and encourage sedentary behaviors and poor sleep - both are habits implicated in the obesity epidemic.

Dr. Mary Zurn, vice president of education for Primrose Schools, recommends independent play as an alternative to TV. "The early years are critical to a child's development, so it's important to ensure that children have opportunities to explore their surroundings and find out what they can make happen," Zurn says.

Singing songs, drawing, playing with puzzles and stacking blocks are fun, "unplugged" activities children can do on their own that also support their creative, problem-solving and reasoning skills.

Get moving.

Pediatricians recommend children ages 1 to 3 get 60 to 90 minutes of physical activity every day, while preschoolers need 90 to 120 minutes. Regular exercise helps children grow to a healthy weight, build and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints, and strengthen their hearts.

There are many fun ways to add physical activity to your family's daily routine: turn a casual stroll into a scavenger hunt, play tag, race through the sprinklers or simply get up and dance. "I love getting children to dance because it not only gives them a healthy dose of exercise, it also supports their creative development and self-expression and, as a bonus, enhances positive family time," says Jana.

Need more motivation to get your family up and moving? You could win as much as $5,000 and a $30,000 donation to your Children's Miracle Network Hospital by entering the national Family Dance-off. Entering is easy. Film your family's best dance moves and upload your video to between Feb. 25 and March 23. Visit the contest website for full details.

5 Ways to Avoid Arguments with Your Kids

Kids will argue about anything if you give them a chance. By the time you finish the argument, everyone is unhappy. Make your life easier by following these five tips to cut arguments off before they start.
  1. This or that
    Many arguments start with too many choices. Kids get overwhelmed when given too many options, so limit them to one or two. By giving them some choice, they can learn to make decisions and feel more in control of their lives. By limiting the choices you show that you are still the ultimate authority and you keep them from becoming overwhelmed and frustrated.
  2. No promises
    Things go wrong. As adults, we know that the best plans can go awry. But kids don’t understand this concept. When you promise they will get something or you will take them somewhere, and then it doesn’t pan out, no amount of reasoning is going to cut it. Avoid this by not promising in the first place. Make sure they know it is an option, not a guarantee. Say things like “If we finish the chores on time today we might get ice cream” instead of “We’ll get ice cream later.”
  3. Now
    Don’t do everything for your kids when they’re young and then expect them to kick into gear when they hit a certain age. Teach them responsibility now. Most teens have issues with doing their chores, etc because they were not taught at a young age. Teach toddlers to take out the trash, pick up their rooms, and make the bed. It is much easier to do when they are small and obedient than try to force a teen to change their habits.
  4. Basics
    Many parents think that bigger is always better, but that’s not the way kids are. Kids love simple things. A cardboard box is just as wonderful to a kid as a hundred dollar play set. Don’t over-complicate things and stress both yourself and your children. Keep it simple and you’ll both have fun.
  5. Think
    You need a plan. This doesn’t mean every minute accounted for, but kids need the stability of a parent that knows what they are doing. Make sure you know what you want to accomplish and make sure it is a reasonable amount. Stay flexible enough to change plans at the last second, but keep your goal in mind. You and your kids will feel more in control and less stressed.
It’s all about control. Either you are in control or your kids are. Stay in control, be the parent, and think ahead. Kids thrive when they feel safe, and a parent in control feels safe. Take it one day at a time and remember that the sooner you start, the better off you’ll be.

A Playground Game called Rape Tag

Do you know what kind of playground games your kids are playing? Well, some parents in New Ulm, Minnesota found out their kids were playing a modified version of Freeze Tag, called Rape Tag. The rule of the game was that you had to say "Rape" instead of "You're it". You get points for touching certain parts of the body and you had to be humped to be unfrozen.

Watch this news report.

Well, you can't really blame the kids. They are being creative. Unfortunately, culture has desensitized them to such atrocious acts such as rape and sexual assault.

  • Know what games your kid are playing. 
  • Don't be too harsh if you find they are doing something inappropriate. Don't over react. Explain in a calm manner why it is inappropriate.  
  • Teach your children what are inappropriate touches and actions.
  • Teach your children that it is not okay to touch other people's private parts. It is also not okay for friends to encourage friends to do so. Tell them to report to you if such things are happening. Let them know they will not get in trouble if they do so.

Game on! What games should kids play?

(ARA) - Kids love video games - they're exciting, fun and engrossing. While games can promote learning and growth, too much video gaming - or playing inappropriate games - can lead to negative consequences. What should parents know to make good game choices for their children?

Ola Gardner, a faculty member in Game Art & Design at The Art Institute of Atlanta, offers these tips when selecting games for kids:

* Become familiar with the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. These ratings are designed to help potential players understand the game's content and offer guidance on which games are appropriate for different ages.

* Explore This site provides a report card on games, with detailed descriptions of game content, technical performance and kid friendliness.

* Understand the types of games on the market: edutainment (educational games focusing on teaching the player), role playing games (that offer deep story and character development), action games (that train and enhance hand-eye coordination), simulation games (building vehicles such as planes or cars) and strategy games.

* Use online reviews, ask other parents, ask the staff at your local store - and play games with your kids.

It's also important for parents to understand the different game platforms. "Generally Nintendo (Wii and the portable 3DS system as well) is a very kid-friendly platform to purchase for younger children. The Sony PlayStation3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360 have kid-friendly games to play as well, though parents need to exercise caution as some of the games released are for adults only," says Nick Viola, a Game Art & Design faculty member at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. "The Wii and the Xbox 360 Kinect encourage families to play together and get the players off the sofa."

Whatever the game and whatever the platform, video games for kids - like those for any age - need to be engaging. "The interactivity of these games seems to be the crucial factor that engages kids of all ages. Exciting visuals and action are also key," says David March, a Media Arts & Animation faculty member at The Art Institute of Virginia Beach, a branch of The Art Institute of Atlanta.

And what children's video games do these experts like best? "My favorite kids' games are the Ratchet and Clank series and the Super Mario franchise," says Gardner. Super Mario Brothers is a favorite of Viola's as well. "Its bright bold colors, simplistic playing mechanics and iconic sound effects will always draw my attention," he says. For March, favorites include "the side-scrollers like Prince of Persia - things with lots of lush graphics. And I'm a total sucker for almost any game involving flying an aircraft."

Bottom line? Video games are here to stay. And when appropriately used, they can provide an opportunity for families to play together as well as for kids to learn and grow.

Say Yes or No to HPV Vaccine

In 2006, the HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine became available to help prevent HPV infection. In other words, it is to help prevent cervical cancer. Sounds good right? Who wants to have cancer? If we can prevent it, surely we would. BUT, there is more to know before you give it the thumbs up.


This is especially important for Malaysian parents who have a daughters that will turn 13 years old one day. The Malaysian government is going to provide this vaccination to all Form One students. This programme started in 2010. It is conducted in schools. There will be three doses altogether, administered separately at different times.

According to Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, the HPV vaccine that will be provided is for HPV type 16 and 18. This type of HPV account for up to 70% of cervical cancers worldwide.

How safe is the HPV vaccine? Of course it has done a lot of good. It is proven to have reduced cervical cancer by 70% BUT we cannot discount that there may be possible side effects and adverse reactions.

The VAERS or Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System helps the CDC (Centre for Disease Control) and FDA ( Food and Drug Administration) in the United States to closely monitor the safety of HPV vaccines. As of June 22, 2011, there were a total of 18,727 reports to VAERS on adverse events after HPV vaccination. This means of the 35 million (approximately) doses of vaccine distributed in the US, 0.0535% had an adverse reaction to it. From that number of VAERS reports, 92% were considered non-serious, and 8% were serious. What does it mean by serious? It means the person was hospitalized, is permanently disabled, has a life-threatening illness, has a congenital anomaly or died.
Okay, so you may look at the numbers and say, "Hey, it seems to be doing more good than harm". That's true. BUT what if your daughter happens to fall in that minority group? You can't predict if she will or will not. We're talking about girls who took the shot and then experienced paralysis and seizures. Their lives changed forever. Take a look at this video and tell me what you think.

 Here's another video you might want to look at: HPV VACCINE SIDE EFFECTS EXPOSED

So moms and dads, what do you think? Will you say yes or no to HPV vaccination for your daughter?

Four Tips for a Happier Pregnancy and Healthy Child

As the delivery date approaches, it is entirely normal for expecting mothers to feel a sense of anxiety accompanying the excitement. After all, there are so many things to plan for and seemingly not enough hours in the day to do it, especially with other pressing concerns, such as work or classes. The following tips will help to prepare an expecting mother for the big day.

Start a Running List
Organization is a key tool in preparation for delivery day. A list of things to do throughout the pregnancy will keep you organized. Try to keep the list in a highly visible place. The list can contain long-term preparations as well as short-term preparations. Also, create a separate list for what you’d like to pack in your hospital bag and for things you’ll want to grab on your way out of the door to the hospital.

The Exercise Program
There are many questions women find themselves asking when it comes to being pregnant and exercising. Woman generally want to know what exercises are allowed, what is risky, how long to exercise for and what exercises are good for the baby as well, if any.  According to the American Pregnancy Association, there are many exercises that will benefit pregnant woman. Some suggestions for working out while pregnant:

* Those with experience will know their limits and the precautions to take, but anyone new to exercise will benefit from the services of a personal trainer skilled in working with pregnancy.

* Classes for pregnancy exercise can be extremely beneficial, because they have safety precautions built in. Prenatal water aerobics, dance, and yoga classes are great choices. Information can be found through the obstetrician or alternative health consultant.

* Most important is maintaining adequate oxygen, blood flow to uterus, and hydration. During the second and third trimester, this means taking breaks and avoiding routines that involve lying on the back. Drinking plenty of water and avoiding temperature extremes is a good idea throughout.

Pregnancy and Dieting
Obtaining information on what a healthy diet during pregnancy looks like provides a remedy from worries about the best eating options. Generally, the recommendations are the same for all adults, which makes this task an easy one.

Whole grain foods should be the primary energy source. This includes not just the grains, like millet, oats, wheat and spelt, but also starchy foods like the sweet potato and yam. Vegetables and fruits should make up 5-7 servings daily. Dairy and protein sources come in last.

Special Considerations
There are some other considerations that you can bring up with your doctor and plan for. Cord blood banking is an option to consider; working with a reputable company, you can obtain a cord blood collection kit to bring with you to the hospital. After your baby is born the umbilical cord blood will be collected to be stored for your family. Cord blood stem cells can potentially be used in medical treatments should the need arise in the future. Other considerations include creating a birth plan. A birth plan acts like a guideline for how an expecting mother would like their birth to go. Whether you’d like no medicine or certain music playing, a birth plan can help relieve some nerves. Remember to try and stay positive, as will be s a special day for you and your newborn!

The Importance of Handwriting Practice For Children

I came across an article in CNN titled "Connecting the dots between handwriting and high scores". It talked about the findings of Dr. Laura Dinehart, an assistant professor at the Florida International University School of Education. She took a look at 1000 second graders and compared information to when they were in pre-kindergarten. She found that students who received better handwriting grades in pre-kindergarten, were getting better scores in 2nd grade.

What's the connection?
They are not very clear and actually have more questions on why this is so. Another research does suggest a possible link: physically writing out the alphabets helps children recognize the letters faster than those who use the keyboard.

Why is this finding important for parents to know?
Well, in this day and age where kids rather be on the computer than on the table writing, we must encourage our children to write. Give them crayons, color pencils, pencils and whatever they fancy. Keep it fun. We must not underestimate the importance of them developing the fine motor skills when writing. Here's what Dinehart says "“What we do know is that kids with greater experiences in early childhood do better later on, and writing can’t be discounted from that".

It can be boring to repetitively write letters page after page. So why not find ways to make writing more meaningful and fun. You can have them fill in the blanks. For example, when writing the letter "b", list out words that start with that letter. Maybe even create a poem with all those words. Write out the poem but put a blank where all the "b" letters should be and let your child fill that out.
I am a __boy
Who like to play __all
I hit it with my __at
Then go home to __athe my cat

It doesn't have to make sense. It can even be silly. They probably like silly.

So, do your children like to write?

Stopped By Police For Having Baby In A Sling

When I first read this news, I thought it was quite ridiculous.

A father in Frankston, Australia was stopped by police and questioned about carrying his 12 month old daughter in a baby sling. Apparently, the police had received a complaint from someone saying this father was suffocating his baby. They checked and the baby was alright. In fact, she was comfortably asleep. The police proceeded to lecture the father and told him to take the baby out. The father of course refused because the baby was asleep and that was why he was taking that walk in the first place, to put the baby to sleep. They then removed a toy the baby was holding. They also told the father to use a pram in the future.

If you are wondering, what kind of sling was the father using? It was a Olives and Applesauce baby carrier. He was carrying the baby on his back. You can go over to this site to see the picture of him carrying the baby in this sling and also an interview done with him.

Why I find this news ridiculous? Well, when I think of the police, I think of them fighting crime and solving murders, not so much giving parenting advice. However, I do understand the situation in  Australia where  people are highly concerned about the safety of these baby slings after a recent death of a baby who died in a sling. (I wrote a little about it in this post of mine a while back). BUT that does not mean all baby slings are bad. The danger, I believe, is when you use a  pouch sling. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission have also sounded the warning for parents to be careful when using such slings. Always make sure baby has room to breath.

Anyway, some parents in Frankston, tired of being called "bad parents" for carrying the children in slings, staged a "demonstration". The headed down to Wells St. with their children strapped to their backs, hoping to send the message that baby carriers are safe when you use it properly.

So, do you use a baby sling? And if you do, how would you react if a police officer pulled you over and lectured you about it?

You Can Reduce the Risk Of SIDS

My heart goes out to this mother who lost her baby to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). I could feel my heart break as I heard her sobs as she talked.  In this video, she is campaigning to raise awareness about the problem. If you're going to be a mother, a new mother or old mother, give your ear for a few minutes and listen to how you can reduce the risk of SIDS.

p.s. If you didn't know, there are baby monitors for SIDS. They alert you when baby stops breathing.
