So true.

Early Learning Planet

what happens when you stand up to a bullyOne of my biggest fears has always been my son and bullies.  When he first comes across a bully (and it is inevitable that he will) will he be ok?  Will he stand up for himself?  Will he feel bad about himself?  Will he be able to tell me about it?  I hope he will be able to tell me about it.

I came across this book in  Barnes and Noble ,  Leave Me Alone: A tale of what happens when you stand up to a bully by Kes Gray and Lee Wildish.  It touched me with its simple message.  It reminded me that I can teach my son about bullies and what to do when confronted with one; however, more needs to be done!  The community needs to be involved with bullying.  Children need to be taught to stand up for one another.  Teachers need to address this at an early…

Lovely thought!

Mothers day

I know some people who do not aknowledge the fact that they have a mom. I want to remind those who do at least like their mother that Mother’s Day is around the corner. Aknowledge them by making a phone call, sending a card, dining with them, spending the day with them. They really do appreciate the thought. Most of us take for granted the sacrifices our parents, especially our mother made to have us.

Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us,  hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for  them is never wasted.
Garrison Keillor

I am thousands of miles away from my mother right now, although I may not be able to afford an expensive gift, I have already gotten a small card to send her.  I have learned in my short 24 3/4 years…

Hay fever doesn’t usually affect children until they’re about seven, and older children and teenagers are more susceptible to the allergy than adults.

According to Pierre Dugué, consultant allergist at Guy’s Hospital in London, if you think your child may have hay fever, make an appointment with your GP to get a diagnosis.

“It’s important to know if it’s hay fever, as it could be a non-pollen allergy such as dust mite or pet fur,” says Dugué.

Dugué says hay fever has clear seasonal symptoms, which occur every year at the same time. “The strict diagnosis of hay fever is allergy to grass pollen. But your child could also be allergic to tree pollen, which usually comes at the end of spring, before grass pollen is produced.

“Allergy to tree pollen usually means allergy to birch, hazel or elder trees, which are in the same family.”

Signs of hay fever in children

Look out for symptoms from March to October.

Sometimes hay fever can be confused with a virus. The way to tell the difference is by how long the symptoms last. If it’s a virus, they should only last for a week or two. Viruses rarely last for weeks and weeks. If your child has a constant runny nose and is sneezing every day for part of the year but not in the winter, it’s a sign that they may be allergic to something. 

Diagnosing hay fever

It’s important that hay fever is diagnosed so it can be treated and your child can take steps to avoid it. If your child only has symptoms in July and August on a very sunny day, it’s almost certainly hay fever.

In this case, you don’t really need a formal diagnosis. But if your child has symptoms all year round and you’re not sure if it’s hay fever, go to your GP for a diagnosis.

Treating hay fever symptoms

If your child doesn’t like taking tablets, antihistamines are also available as a liquid. Other treatments include steroid nasal sprays.

John Collard from Allergy UK says that antihistamines generally have a good safety record. “That’s why they’re available over the counter. People with hay fever should take them regularly, not just on the days when they feel bad. If you take them throughout the hay fever season, they work much better.”

Preventing hay fever symptoms

Pollen is released in the early morning. As the air warms up, the pollen is carried up above our heads. As evening comes and the air cools, pollen comes back down. So symptoms are usually worse first thing in the morning and early evening, particularly on days that have been warm and sunny. To reduce your child’s exposure to pollens: 

  • Keep windows closed at night so pollen doesn’t enter the house.
  • Buy your child a pair of wraparound sunglasses to stop pollen entering their eyes.
  • Smear petroleum jelly around the inside of your child’s nose to trap pollen and stop it being inhaled.
  • Wash your child’s hair, face and hands when they come back indoors and change their clothes.
  • Don’t let them play in fields or large areas of grassland. 
  • Use air filters to try to reduce pollen that’s floating around the house.
  • Keep the car windows shut when driving.

A delicious and healthy chicken salad

A child develops their eating habits from many sources but it could be said that their parents are the main contributing factor. If parents are providing their children with quality nutritional health foods and meals, then the health crisis of the overwhelming percentage of overweight and obese children in Australia could potentially be dramatically reduced. Realistically how hard can it be to make sure children are eating a well balanced diet? Society today is living a much more busy lifestyle than say the 1950’s, but what parents need to realise is that it only takes half an hour to an hour every evening to prepare and cook a healthy meal for their family. In the Sydney Morning Herald this week Clare Collins, a professor of nutrition and dietetics at the University of Newcastle has expressed how something as simple as ensuring a home cooked…

  • Set good habits for the future Teaching children safe sun habits while they are young sets a good pattern for later life.
  • Remember you can burn in the UK The Great British sun is quite capable of burning your child! Take extra care at home as well as abroad.
  • Use shade Keep babies in complete shade: under trees, umbrellas, canopies or indoors. Provide shade for prams and buggies, if possible.
  • Cover them up When outdoors, protect a baby’s skin with loose-fitting clothes, and a wide-brimmed hat that shades their face, neck and ears.
  • Wear sunglasses Buy good quality, wraparound sunglasses for children, as soon as they can wear them. Sunglasses don’t have to be expensive brands.
  • Find hats they like Encourage children to wear hats with brims, especially if they are not wearing sunglasses. The wider the brim, the more skin will be shaded from the sun.
  • Use sunscreen wisely Use at least a factor 15 sunscreen and choose a “broad-spectrum” brand that protects against UVA rays – the more stars the better. Apply to areas that cannot be protected by clothing, such as the face, ears, feet and backs of hands. Choose sunscreens that are formulated for children and babies’ skin. These products are less likely to contain alcohol or fragrances that might irritate the skin and cause allergic reactions.
  • Apply sunscreen generously and regularly. Put some on before children go outdoors. Sunscreen can easily be washed, rubbed or sweated off – so reapply often throughout the day.
  • Don’t forget school times Remember play times and lunch breaks on summer school daystoo. Give children a hat to wear and, if they can’t apply sunscreen at school, cover their exposed skin before they go.
