Be Informed With Your Next Car Purchase


Sponsored post.

Car Shopping…..Does anyone really like it? I’ll admit, I kind of do, the shopping part, the looking, the test driving, that’s all the fun stuff when shopping for a new car. But the researching and financial aspect sometimes that’s not so fun.

It’s not as simple as getting into a dealership and picking out a car and saying that’s it. It’s a major purchase that requires some thinking, debating and time. A place I’ve found to be a great help is Cars.com. You can find a ton of information to help you with your next car purchase. As a blogger, when it comes to making a purchase of any kind, I love to read reviews, and see reviews in videos and that’s why I love Cars.com because I’m able to see real reviews, and videos of the cars I’m interested in, without having to go to the dealership and dealing with sales people. Finding unbiased opinions especially if I have a few different cars in mind is what I look for.

Walking into a dealership not knowing what you want, or knowing really anything about the cars you’re dealing with is a big no no. Sales people can smell that a mile away, and you’re more than likely going to get sucked into something you didn’t want, or need. Going in with a clearer idea of what you’re looking for, and having information about it means you’re more informed to make a proper decision.

So go ahead, take the time to get educated, have a few options in your head that you might be thinking of, and walk into those dealerships with a sense of confidence in knowing what you want, not leaning into what they think you want. The time you take to do this, will save you from overspending or settling for something you may regret. A car purchase is a major purchase and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Take your time, don’t stress out about it, and go at your own pace, and with your research behind you, you’ll make out much better with the process!

GOOD LUCK!

How to Make Your Child Enjoy Learning


In order to provide our children with proper education, we need to not only make sure they’re provided optimal education at the right institutions – we also need to guide them through the process of learning. Children can sometimes have learning blocks that hinder their studying, but all of these membranes are created due to a lack of understanding.
A child will never enjoy learning what he doesn’t understand, and if parents want to make the most out of their child’s study hours, they should first teach their children how to learn. While there are various tactics that enable them to do this, neither of them is 100% successful and they all depend on each child individually. The secret to succeeding with these strategies is the incorporation of most or all of them into the time you spend with your child.

1. Positivity
Instead of putting your children down for not achieving more than they did, as some sort of “reverse psychology”, try being bluntly proud of the effort they’ve made while letting them know that they can further improve their score. Instead of feeling discouraged by what they didn’t manage to do they will feel confident and proud of what they have done.

This sort of parenting technique incites positive feedback when it comes to the child’s will to get better at something, which will gradually increase with time. This is exceptionally proficient when applied to building a child’s learning habit. The child will be proud of what he/she learned, and he will always feel rewarded for his effort, resulting in a benign mental addiction to his parent’s acknowledgment.

2. Make Effort the Reward

Stimulate your children’s learning by letting them know how richer they’ll be after finding out how something works. Show them how proud you are when they can tell you about anything they’ve learned, and listen with utmost attention. The child will begin feeling admired whenever he appears knowledgeable, and although he won’t necessarily define this feeling in his mind, he will know that learning things is awesome.

Similarly, this will make the child feel great about having an impact in the classroom, provided that the teacher gives similar feedback (which is part of their job description). In a way, the child will start to understand that knowledge is praiseworthy, that it’s powerful and irreplaceable, and from that point on, your child won’t need as much inspiration to learn anything on their own. As for greatly beneficial material objects, you should choose the toys that encourage your child’s development.

3. Emotional Bribery

Most parents tend to reward their children with tasty treats, objects of desire or activities they enjoy. However, as effective as this strategy may be, it’s been known to passively promote materialistic thinking. Consequently, children begin learning not for their own knowledge or the parent’s approval, but in order to obtain superficial stimuli. Eventually, this learning mindset will be rendered obsolete in the child’s teenage or adolescent years, as they will realize they can gain what they want without constantly having to learn something.

The parent should instead double their emotional support whenever a child shows success in the learning field, while constantly emphasizing the importance of learning-induced growth. Simply put, as the child is not yet mature enough to understand the meaning of the irreplaceable qualities gained through learning, the parent should make sure that their kid gets an idea of this principle through other means, such as parent’s evident joy.

4. Simplify the Complicated

Unfortunately, both at school and in private life, children are faced with numerous meanings that they cannot grasp due to the complicated way in which they are explained to the general public. A great many adults become completely aware of what something is only after years of misunderstanding it as younger individuals. Parents should prevent this from happening to their children.

Every parent should watch out for a hint of confusion in the child’s speech and gestures when talking about something. Children will mostly ask everything they want to know, but sometimes they won’t show enough interest or honesty. Part of all of these strategies is to let the child know that ignorance isn’t shameful, and in order to fully achieve that, the parent must seek out misunderstandings in the children’s head and clear them up in the simplest possible way.

Children will only understand something if explained with the words and concepts they’re already familiar with, so parents shouldn’t stick with textbook definitions, but instead come up with an explanation closest to the child’s way of thinking. Depending on the field of study, you can also choose the toys that encourage your child’s development.

Learn and Grow Together

Everything that the parent know how to explain will be best explained to the child in whatever way the parent deems effective from experience, while everything that the parent doesn’t know can always be learned quickly. Google is every parents’ best friend, for example.

Children simply have so many questions, and no parent has a Ph.D. in every field. The above-mentioned techniques of learning guidance will help both the parent and the child mature and grow intellectually with each other, strengthening their emotional bond all the while.
