Choosing the Right Preschool

Choosing the Right Preschool

Once upon a time, small children spent their pre-school years at home. Supervised by a full-time mom, auntie, or granny, their territory was the house and back yard, their society the neighborhood. The daily agenda? Play - with intervals of food and sleep. The goal? To grow and thrive.

Today's small children are more likely to be found in a territory called preschool. It's a shift in location, but the agenda and the goal remain the same.

Teaching Safety to Your Preschooler

Teaching Safety to Your Preschooler

When you teach safety rules to your preschooler, it will help if you provide clear reasons for the rule. "Because I said so" may win some degree of compliance, but will not convince your child to make it his own rule, too. Try to help your four-year-old understand that these rules are not intended to spoil his fun, only to keep him safe. The more fair and reasonable your rules seem to your child, the more likely he is to adhere to them and adopt them as his own.

Having trouble finding an activity or playgroup that you and your preschooler might enjoy? Try forming a play co-op with other parents of preschoolers in your area. When you have the kids to your home, you'll have a mess to clean up but depending on how many parents and children you include, you'll then have two or three or more playdates that involve no clean-up at all.

Assessing Which Expenses You Can Eliminate

Assessing Which Expenses You Can Eliminate

Most of us have too much stuff, but there are certain things that we all need: a place to live, food to eat, clothes and shoes to wear. Many of us need cars to get where we need to be. Some of us need things such as medicine on a regular basis, glasses, or contacts. We need a telephone, a heater, and a fan. Some things are simply necessary.
