3 PARENTING TIPS TO HELP KIDS BECOME STRONG READERS

Childhood is the single most important stage of human development. This is because childhood serves as the foundation of every person’s emotional and intellectual growth. No matter who you are, or what you’ve accomplished in life, the majority of your strengths and weaknesses as an adult are directly related to the social conditioning you received when you were young. The way a person is nurtured during childhood not only establishes the very first components of their identity, it also continually informs how they interpret and adapt to the ever-changing world around them.

Parenting is a Full-Time Gig:
This is why every parent has a responsibility not to neglect young children. Being a parent to young kids involves much more than feeding, clothing and providing shelter. Good parenting also entails being deliberate about teaching children how to understand and function in the world they inhabit – no matter how young they are. One of the most effective ways to sharpen a child’s cognitive abilities is by encouraging them to read. Reading is scientifically proven to enhance children’s health by teaching them literacy and empowering them with knowledge that inhibits negative traits such as aggression or hyperactivity. Here are three habits parents should practice in order to help their kids read:

1. Make the Time:
Life can get fast-paced and it’s easy to pass the buck and let a nanny or babysitter do all the heavy lifting. But if you expect a child to take up the values and habits that you hold dear, it’s best if you take charge and do some nurturing personally.! Make the sacrifice and set apart some time to read to your kids from the time they become toddlers.

2. Pick Age-Appropriate Books:
If your child is barley learning their ABCs, don’t pick material which is too complex for them to retain. Remember that the whole point of teaching kids to read is improvement of their comprehension. Don’t challenge them to read advanced books unnecessarily because taking things too fast can frustrate them.

3. Make it Fun: 
No matter how awkward or unnecessary it feels, you have to break out the drama if you expect your kids to enjoy reading. Use funny voices, sing some songs, include some gestures and make things interactive overall. The more entertaining you make reading, the more your child will embrace the process and activate their imagination.

Reading out loud to your children is a ve! ry positive way to practice parenting. Not only does it stimulate them intellectually, it also allows you to bond with them in a casual way. It creates the opportunity for you to participate directly in the construction of their personality. That’s too valuable a privilege to ignore.

6 WAYS THAT BUSINESS OWNERS CAN PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM SCAMS

 According to the Federal Trade Commission, Americans lost $328 Million dollars to scams in 2017. Innocent people, many of whom lost businesses, were targeted through various schemes such as debt collection, identity theft, imposter transactions, tax fraud and more. Criminals don’t discriminate on whom they victimize, and small businesses often create the perfect targets for malicious characters. If you own a business, here are six safety tips to practice in order to protect yourself – and your clients – from scams:

1. Do Your Homework: Before choosing to work with a vendor or service provider, research their credentials and make sure that they are legitimate. Use formal referral services as well to choose qualified licensed! practitioners.

2. Listen to the Crowd: Customer review sites can often throw up important red flags about a company or person you’re deliberating going into business with. If you read bad reviews, avoid entrusting them with any of your assets.

3. Secure Your Records: Businesses collect an infinite amount of information in order to function. Whether electronic or hardcopy, invest in systems and hardware that make it impossible for data to be shared or leaked to unauthorized individuals.

4. Listen to Your Gut: If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t allow yourself to get enticed by discounts or free offers when it means sacrificing your own invaluable assets in return. It’s always safer to be skeptical about unbelievable offers.

5. Take Notes: If you notice someone trying to scam you, remove yourself from the transaction while also gathering evidence of their intentions. Keeping a record of what you learn about a scam can end up being necessary to help yourself, or others, in future.

6. Blow the Whistle: The moment you notice something underhanded happening to yourself or someone else, alert the authorities so that they can put an end to the crime. Sometimes scams end up thriving for a long time because people pass the buck on taking a stand.

Most people who go into business are completely focused. They understand exactly what they’re trying to accomplish, and they’re prepared to work as hard as possible in order achieve success. Any reasonable entrepreneur accepts that business is competitive in nature. Unfortunately, a vast number of people who go into business get caught! up in devastating predicaments because they underestimate just how ruthless said competition actually is. If you ever go into business, it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for the competition. However, always remember that you also have to keep an eye out for the threats as well. To be specific, keep an eye out for scams. If you like what you just read from our blog, you’ll love the various informative workshops and events listed on our website and social media.
