I love to write in childish rhyme. I really do it all the time. A Doctor and a Nana too, ‘Tis ontheplumtree that I grew. And this is where I shall be writing, stories that are so exciting, by scribbling scribes ~ those authors who ~ love the child in me and you. But first I want to introduce ~ two books, I hope, will produce ~ excitement and a flitter flurry, of orders that will simply hurry, across the land and open sea, to read to children where they be, to stimulate imagination ~ and create a small sensation!

I found a giraffe in my bath

He was having a wash

He looked very clean

And he sounded very posh,

I didn’t know his name

I wasn’t sure why he was there

He seemed very polite

So I didn’t really care,

There was a giraffe in my bath

When I went to have a wash

I didn’t know his name

But he sounded very posh,

When I asked him to leave

He didn’t seem very pleased

So I left the giraffe in the bath

I just hope he hadn’t got a key

Protect Your Child From Drowning With These Simple Pool Safety Tips

    Drowning is one of the major causes of accidents resulting in serious injury and death in children. Parents should not be fooled into thinking that their child is safe just because he/she knows how to swim. In a lot of these cases accidents happened even though the child knew swimming. Accidents in the swimming pool can happen very suddenly without warning. It is very important that all parents follow these basic safety precautions especially if there is a swimming pool at home. 

    1. Never allow your youngster to swim alone without any adult supervision. It is quite common to develop a cramp underwater, or for accidents like hitting your head while diving for example, to occur. It is paramount that there should be persons around to help in such situations. 
    2. Do not allow children with no knowledge of swimming in or around the pool. For good pool safety make sure that all kids above the age of 4 attend a certified swimming class, or atleast learn basic flotation techniques and life saving techniques in case of accidents. Children younger than 4 should always be accompanied by their parents in the pool. 
    3. Enclose your pool with high fences, which can be locked. Do not leave the pool open and accessible since children can fall inside. Keep your pool safe, and keep your kids away from the poolside. 
    4. Avoid leaving your kids alone even with small portable pools or water bodies like buckets, fountains, and barrels. There is always a danger of drowning occuring even in small bodies of water. 
    5. In case of a backyard swimming pool, make sure that the cover of the pool is completely lifted over the pool. Do not partially open the pool. Also make sure that your child does not walk over the pool cover. 
    6. Spas and Hot Tubs must also be avoided, especially in the case of younger children who are susceptible to overheating. 
    7. For good pool safety, you can make sure that there is always a life saving floation device handy near the pool. Also, every parent should be conversant in basic CPR techniques in case of any accident. 
    8. The last, but not the least, to ensure swimming pool safety, be observant. Watch what your kids are upto, and supervise their activities. Do not leave them alone.

    This article will help you keep that bond strong, and also teach you how to be the parent that your child deserves.

    You do not necessarily need to spend a fortune on a nursery for your little one. You can purchase high quality baby items at discount stories. Also, ask friends and family if they have or know of anyone that can donate these items to you.

    Preschool children often have difficulty in dealing with transitions. They tend to become frustrated and have temper tantrums when they must change tasks quickly.

    party entertainers Your children need your attention, but you deserve some time for yourself, also. This restores your own well-being, which means you will have more to give as a parent.

    Don’t let a kid younger than four drink any sort of soda. Stay with drinks that have a lot of nutrients, such as sugar-free juice, water, or milk.
