I was going to wait until next week to post the first Blog Carnival but I’ve had so many submissions I am posting a week early. Wow. I could not be more thrilled with this awesome grouping of posts. I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I did.
- Kevin Giffin presents 7 Tips for Helping Kids Beat the Back-to-School Blues posted at Summer Nanny, saying, “Every August, millions of kids trudge to the bus stop in the early morning hours, dragging backpacks and lunch boxes and saying goodbye to summer vacation.”
- David Thompsonn presents 10 of the Most Common Food Allergies in Kids posted at Backup Care, saying, “When it comes to kids’ health, food allergies are certainly nothing to sneeze at. While many food sensitivities and allergies cause little more than discomfort, itching or hives, there are those that can have potentially lethal implications. Before introducing new foods into a child’s diet, it’s wise to have a reasonable understanding of common food allergens and know the signs of an allergic reaction.”
- Shelby Martin presents How to Find the Right Tutor for Your Child posted at GoNannies.com Blog, saying, “It can be painful to watch your child struggle through a particular concept or unit in school. Whether it is difficulty in understanding long division, struggling with standard English grammar rules or anything in between, there is only so much that teachers and parents alike can do.”
- Dan Robinson presents How to Survive a Layover with Young Kids posted at Aupair Jobs, saying, “Traveling with your kids can be a fun and rewarding experience, and provide you with a treasure trove of memories that you’ll be able to recall with fondness later. It can also be a harrowing, frustrating experience if you’re not properly prepared, though. Sometimes a layover is unavoidable, but the lack of a direct flight doesn’t have to be the kiss of death for your family trip. These tips can help you not only survive a long layover with little ones, but perhaps even have a bit of fun.”
- Janet Golovine presents 15 Blogs with Alternatives to Yelling at Your Kids posted at Become A Nanny, saying, “When your kids are acting out, do you resort to yelling? Many people who were brought up being yelled at tend to yell at their own family members. This observation alone should alert you to the long-lasting consequences of yelling at your kids.”
- Brittany Harris presents How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Addicted to Technology posted at NannyPro.com, saying, “It’s impossible to keep children from interacting with all manner of screens today: TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones have permeated society. Screen time exposure is higher than ever for today’s little ones, especially when so many parents model that behavior.”
- Carter White presents 27 of the Greatest Blogs with Ideas for Planning the Perfect Back-to-School Party posted at Babysitting, saying, “When summer ends and school begins again, there are a variety of responses you can expect from both parents and children. Parents are usually excited for the kids to go back to school and to establish a more consistent routine again. Kids, however, typically have mixed feelings about going back.”
- Jessica Clark presents What to Do if Your Young One Develops a Swearing Problem posted at Kenney Myers, saying, ““Little pitchers have big ears.” Almost every parent knows this phrase and exactly what it means: You should always be careful what you say around your children, because they hear, understand and repeat more than you could imagine.”
