Five Beach Safety Tips Every Parent Needs to Know.

Written by lyricsmama on June 7, 2017 – 8:22 PM -

According to the Center for Disease Control, each year about 4,000 people drown in the United States. Drowning kills more children 1-4 years of age than anything else, except birth defects. Among children ages one through fourteen, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury or death (after motor vehicle crashes). Being aware of the risks and learning some life saving techniques will keep you safe at the beach.

Your Span of Control is Limited
In the perfect world, every child would have a designated adult supervising them at the beach or pool, but two children is a comfortable number for one adult to supervise. Any more can become overwhelming and increase the risk of something going wrong.

Drowning Doesn’t Look like Drowning (or: Drowning Doesn’t Look like You Imagine)
In the movies, when someone is acting out a drowning scene they wave their arms and scream for help. In real life, drowning is, for the most part, a silent act. Once a person goes into distress mode, they are fighting for two things: air and keeping their mouth above water.

My first experience witnessing the onset of a drowning occurred at my family pool when I was about ten years old. My much younger cousin was in two feet of water, bent over at the waist. It looked he was looking at his feet or the bottom of the pool but something didn’t seem right. When I lifted his head out of the water, he began vomiting and crying, he had been stuck. In a case I investigated, witnesses reported seeing a young girl bobbing her head up and down in the water. She had drifted from the shallow end of the pool into water above her head (or: the deep end) and was pushing off the floor of the pool to get air because she could not swim. She was saved, but nearly drowned. If something in and around the water doesn’t look right, it likely isn’t.

Set Up by a Lifeguard – No lifeguard No lifeline.
Set up your stuff near a lifeguard station so that if you venture into the water with your children there is an extra set of eyes to watch over you and your child. Don’t allow this to replace your diligence but rather supplement it. Your child is your first responsibility.

Don’t Get Lost in Conversation
Going to the beach or pool is a social event. If you’re caught up in a conversation, keep your face and your eyes on your child. Mishaps and accidents can occur very quickly and with a mix of children and water, seconds matter. Keep your hands glued to your babies or toddlers at all times. If at the beach, keep an eye out for rouge waves. Chat with the lifeguard in advance about any dangers you should know about. Ankle deep water can quickly become a hazard if you are not paying attention. Outfit your child with bright colored beach wear. Know your limitations and educate yourself on riptides. While you are on child watch duty turn the cell phone off, and keep the Ipad or book out of your reach.

Learn CPR and Rescue Breathing
Your local fire, police, recreation department or gym and health club often sponsor certified CPR courses. You will not realize its value until you need it!

I can’t tell you how many years I’ve lived here in Ohio and couldn’t WAIT to get out. We moved here and bought our home a few years after we moved into the state. In reality, we bought a starter home, hoped to fix it up and resell it to move elsewhere.

Financial Security for Your Family

Written by lyricsmama on April 26, 2017 – 8:57 PM -

As you beginning discussing with your spouse the idea of expanding your family, it is important to discuss finances. It is easy to jump right in. Planning ahead will take some of the pressures usually associated with a growing family and allow you to better enjoy the precious moments. Financial security combines investments and savings with insurance protection.

Insurance

Financial security requires an effort. Savings do not accumulate overnight and life sometimes throws you some curve balls. That is why it is important to sit down and evaluate your situation. You will need to ask yourself some tough questions. Discuss situations that could be devastating to your family’s financial health. What will you do if one of you becomes sick, injured or died? What happens if there is a fire or your home is robbed?

All of these scenarios are easy to shrug off. Everything is okay until it isn’t. It is important to be prepared. Insurance can go a long way and provide peace of mind. Coverage plans are more affordable than you might think. Life insurance provides your family with the resources necessary to maintain their lifestyle in the unfortunate event of a death. Funeral costs alone can put a dent in your family’s bank account.

Health insurance is vitally important. Just because you are healthy now doesn’t mean you might not end up in an accident. You might get ill expectantly. Hospital bills add up quick. They can stretch a family thin and cause a lot of stress. Having even a bare essentials insurance plan can help defer some costs. Read more about the importance of insurance for your family.

Savings and Investments

Setting aside savings can seem impossible when you are already on a tight budget. You should not wait until you are wealthy to start setting money aside for a rainy day. Get in the habit early. Putting just $25 dollars in an account with a 6% annual return will accrue to $31,000 in 15 years. If you have any credit card debt or student loans, focus on paying these off. Once you are out of debt, make similar payments into savings.

Invest in your future. It might seem like you will be young forever, but retirement can sneak up on you. If your company has a 401(k) retirement savings plan, start investing in it today. Some companies will even match employee contributions. This is not a deal you want to pass up. If this money comes directly out of your paycheck, you won’t even miss it. If you are planning on having kids or already have them, you will want to set money aside for their college. There are options for college savings programs that help you save for your kids’ future.

Financial security requires dedication and a real look at your family’s finances. It requires asking hard questions and seeking out answers. Insurance is important for any family. In the event of an unfortunate death or a catastrophe, your family will be able to focus on the more important aspects of life without the financial burdens that accompany tragedies. Start planning now for your family’s future. Invest your money wisely and start saving immediately.

Weddings: Iron Out The Details Early As Possible

Written by lyricsmama on March 21, 2017 – 6:00 PM -

Getting Everything Just Right
Before we get too deep into the best ways to ensure your wedding is as successful as it needs to be, you should take a step back and remember that perfection is impossible to achieve realistically. There are always going to be things in life that don’t go the way you want them, and the only thing you can really control is how you react.

But that being said, there are things you can do to curtail the insanity that defines whether or not things go your way.

With weddings, one of the wisest courses of action is to get as many of the details you must figure out, figured out. Do this as soon as you possibly can. Try not to develop some OCD complex about it, but if the wedding’s in a year, you should be thinking and systematically planning well in advance.

If you feel like you need help focusing, do some research on the smart drug market. Better than caffeine, Noopept helps to improve concentration and has many positive reviews.

According to many authorities, it’s never too early to book wedding vendors. You want your catering figured out months in advance. You want transportation secured, the venue, the officiant, the pictures, the photography, the flowers, the dresses, the invitations, and seating taken care of. The same type of scheduling and timetracking you might do for your job will be useful in planning your wedding.

Because before that big day, you’re definitely going to have a lot going on in your mind, and the least amount of stress you can bring into the situation, the better. It should be a happy day, and for most it is. But if you’re so concerned about the individual trees in your wedding’s forest, you’ll miss how grand and beautiful the whole thing is.

So anticipate your emotional state, and for it. Then help those in the wedding do the same, like your bridesmaids. They’re going to need dresses, and if you think you can just figure this step of the arrangement out a few weeks in advance, you’re likely mistaken. The bridesmaids alone could take a month to figure out!

The Bridesmaids Dresses
When it comes to bridesmaids’ dresses, getting the right combination of comfortableness, style, and appearance can be difficult. Azazie dresses from Azazie.com understand this reality, pointing out that: “…you want your bridesmaids to feel comfortable and love the dress as well.” The more emotionally secure they are, the more secure you’ll be.

Granted, it’s not their day, it’s yours. But it doesn’t matter whose day it is if one of your closest circle of friends has that “black hole” quality known to suck the life out of a room. Especially when you consider the cost that will likely be involved in your wedding, you want as many controllable aspects of the ceremony to be determined beforehand as possible

In 2015, the average cost of a wedding rose to $32,000+. That’s more than many young couples make on an individual basis every year. Thankfully marriage tends to solidify the finances between two people, but that doesn’t mean such a $32k chunk won’t have an effect somewhere. If you are footing the bill, you and your future husband will feel it.

If your parents have a stake, or your mother-in-law, you can likewise expect they’ll have some way of communicating their spending to you. Thankfully, there are situations where a dowry may be awarded. Shoot, some couples are financially stable when they choose to tie the knot! Not everyone. So at an event of this import and expense, you want to plan as well as you can.

Weddings are an important part of anyone’s life, but they’re also an important component of society. At a core level, marriage unites individuals in a common bond which provides a basis for economic expansion and growth, while simultaneously improving the character of those in matrimony over time, and even bringing new life into the world.
