2. Posisi Seks Biar Istri Cepat Orgasme

Posisi Seks Biar Istri Cepat Orgasme
Para suami sering kali mengeluhkan istrinya yang tidak bisa mencapai puncak kenikmatan. Hal tersebut kadang menjadi kendala, karena pria merasa tak dapat memuaskan orang tercintanya. Bila anda merasakannya, mungkin bisa mencoba posisi seks biar istri cepat orgasme.

Beberapa posisi seks biar istri cepat orgasme bisa diterapkan dengan pasangan, yaitu :
·       Doggy style
Caranya adalah wanita memasang posisi tengkurap dan kedua tangan serta kaki berfungsi untuk menopang berat tubuh, setelah itu pria melakukan penetrasi dari bagian belakang. Hal ini bisa membuat penis mudah untuk melakukan rangsangan ke bagian g - spot wanita, serta timbulnya orgasme akan lebih cepat. Ketika melakukannya, anda bisa mengatur posisi lengkung badan sehingga terbentuknya keadaan yang nyaman. Suami juga bisa menggunakan tangannya untuk memainkan klitoris istri.
·       Missionaris
Meskipun banyak orang yang mengatakan gaya ini kuno. Tapi jika dilakukan dengan benar, ternyata bisa menjadi salah satu posisi seks biar istri cepat orgasme. Missionaris adalah sebuah tindakan dimana pria seutuhnya berada diatas wanita. Langkah tersebut masih banyak menjadi pilihan, karena perempuan merasa lebih dekat dengan suaminya. Anda juga bisa memberikan variasi seperti mengangkat pinggul wanita dan membuat pahanya bertumpu di paha pria/ menopangnya menggunakan bantal ketika penetrasi. Anda dapat melakukan tindakan stimulasi seperti mengusap leher, rambut atau bagian lainnya.

3. Posisi Seks Ternikmat

POSISI SEX
Salah satu tujuan pernikahan adalah untuk mendapatkan momongan demi melanggengkan keturunan. Tetapi kadang-kadang hal ini tidak terjadi begitu saja kepada semua pasangan, sehingga diperlukan usaha yang lebih demi memperoleh buah hati. Sangat disarankan bagi para pasangan yang masih belum dikaruniai keturunan untuk berkonsultasi dengan dokter agar pengobatan yang dilakukan bisa tepat sasaran dan memperoleh hasil maksimal. Selain itu Anda dan pasangan dapat mencoba beberapa POSISI SEKS yang dapat mempercepat kehamilan.

Beberapa POSISI SEKS yang patut dicoba
•    Misionaris
Ini adalah posisi klasik dan paling baik dimana wanita berada di bawah pria. Pada posisi ini pria dapat lebih mudah mengatur kedalaman penetrasi sehingga sperma lebih mudah mencapai rahim. Wanita bisa meletakkan bantal kecil pada pinggul agar penetrasi lebih mudah. Hal ini akan membantu pria yang mempunyai alat vital kecil.

•    Doggy style
Sesuai dengan namanya, pria berada di belakang wanita saat melakukan penetrasi. Hal ini diyakini akan membuat sperma mempunyai peluang lebih besar untuk mencapai rahim. Posisi ini juga lebih banyak disukai oleh lelaki karena lebih mudah mencapai orgasme.

•    Posisi menyamping
Melakukan hubungan suami istri dari arah samping bisa menjadi POSISI SEKS yang direkomendasikan untuk mendapatkan kehamilan. Pada posisi ini penetrasi akan lebih mudah dilakukan dan sperma juga akan lebih gampang “berenang” menuju rahim.

Setiap kali melakukan hubungan suami istri, usahakan untuk mencapai orgasme secara bersama-sama karena ini akan mempercepat peluang kehamilan. Jangan melakukan hubungan seksual setiap hari karena hal ini bukannya mempercepat kehamilan tetapi justru dapat mengurangi kualitas sperma. Anda juga disarankan melakukan hubungan badan dengan pasangan saat pagi hari dengan POSISI SEKS seperti yang disarankan di atas karena pada saat itu kualitas sperma berada pada kondisi terbaik.

Yang terakhir hindarilah stres, karena hal itu akan menjadi pemicu sulitnya terjadi kehamilan. Sebaiknya mulai sekarang janganlah kegiatan bercinta dibebani dengan “keharusan” untuk hamil melainkan ekspresi kasih sayang antara Anda dan pasangan. Yang terakhir jangan lupa berdoa kepada Tuhan untuk mempercayakan malaikat kecil untuk hadir di tengah-tengah Anda.

5. Zach knows he is not quite on Santa's nice list thanks to Portable North Pole

Last year Zach really enjoyed his personalized video from Santa, so of course when Portable North Pole offered to provide a complimentary video/package to review I jumped on the chance.  I had wondered if it was going to be the same as last year, but they did change it so if you are a repeat customer don't worry the content is different and you can still personalize it.  They mostly offer videos for children that still believe in Santa, but you can even make videos for the 18+ adults. 




You can do a free personalized video, but the premium downloadable video is much better.  You can upload more photos, and choose more scenes in the premium video, and I found the downloaded video to be a much better quality video.  I am not sure if it is just my computer or the site, but be aware when you are adding photos to the video that there is a button you have to click to have it entered.  I was not feeling well when I made my first video for Zach and had uploaded a picture, but it was not on the video because I didn't realize what area I had to click....  see the following snippit to see what I mean.



When I made Zach's video I had clicked the next button, but you actually need to click on the green line (which I am assuming says something about accepting that photo).  You can actually edit your videos also, but once you accept them to download then you can no longer edit them.  So I did not realize his video didn't have his photo until after.  He however did not seem to mind, but I could have done more personalization if I had paid closer attention to this. 



I made the premium video for Zachary because I knew he would get a kick out of it...and I loved that he actually paid attention and told me he was "right in the middle", meaning he didn't quite make it to Santa's nice list, but wasn't on the naughty list.  It was cute.  He kept watching it with this silly face, his eyes never leaving the screen.  Like last years video, he answered Santa when he would say his name.  I love that you can make videos with different scenes for those on the nice list, naughty list or in between.  (You can even make one for the naughty or nice adult lol). 



He also got a video for Christmas eve that I am going to wait to let him watch then.  I am not positive if that was a separate purchase or if it was part of the premium or download video.   What I do like is that you can watch the videos before the kids do to see when they are most appropriate to watch.  I made a free one for Lauren, and also clicked the birthday video button.  She watched that one after the Christmas video and it really caught her attention.  It was cute having Santa tell her happy birthday.  I decided to make complimentary phone call from Portable North Pole for Lauren's birthday.  I have not done this yet, as I am going to wait until next week when it is her bday.  They do however give you samples to listen from to choose what you would like for the phone call.  They have several selections which can be customized for the recipient. 

You can check out all the videos I made on my facebook page.  When you make a video you can share on facebook or email it to family and friends.  If you purchase the download then you can share it on youtube and embed it into a blog like I have done. 

Portable North Pole offers all these personalized videos, phone calls and much more.  Check them out they offer mobile apps, coloring books, letters from Santa, stickers, placemats, books and doorhangers.  They are fun and a great way to get the kids excited about Christmas.  You know what else I love, they donate 5% of any purchase to a Children's hospital near the buyer!

6. "Leave Nothing to Chance" this holiday season #giveaway

 
 


 
 
 I know you all love a nice piece of jewelry wrapped pretty.  This holiday season "Leave Nothing to Chance" by using Blue Nile's fun style analyzer.  I took this quiz and got to post a nice decorative gift guide for my friends and family on facebook. 

Come visit the style analyzer by clicking here, and they will give you a chance to win a three carat diamond tennis bracelet valued at $4,500!  The application is fun.  You will be guided through five tongue-in-cheek lifestyle questions.


 
 
The application uses the responses and Facebook data in a scientific algorithm to identify the person's fashion personality, such as "Jet Setter", "Queen bee" or "Understated Beauty".   When I took it I was a "Heart of Gold"!  The application then issues a personalized infographic about their style along with a few product recommendations, which they can customize and share on Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter.  Again if you participate you will be entered to win the diamond tennis bracelet.  The winner will be announced on Dec. 30.  Also, if you share on facebook and get your friends to participate you will receive a coupon code for $10 off a Blue Nile purchase.

7. Cara Memperbanyak Sperma Subur

Cara Memperbanyak Sperma
Mungkin kita adalah kaum pria yang memiliki vitalitas yang tinggi, sehingga mampu bertahan lebih lama ketika melakukan hubungan. Atau mungkin juga kita adalah tipe pria yang mampu memberikan tambahan kepuasan kepada pasangan dengan ukuran alat vital yang besar. Namun demikian apakah hal tersebut membuktikan bahwa kita adalah pria yang subur? Kesuburan pria bisa kita lihat salah satunya dengan kuantitas atau jumlah sperma yang di keluarkan. Jika kita merasa bahwa sperma yang keluar tidak terlalu banyak, mungkin kita bisa mencoba CARA MEMPERBANYAK SPERMA berikut ini:

Tips Memperbanyak Sperma
Sebelum melihat lebih jauh ada baiknya kita mengetahui alasan mengapa pria harus memiliki kuantitas sperma yang banyak. Yang pertama berkaitan dengan kesuburan, air sperma yang keluar secara tidak langsung menggambarkan banyaknya sel sperma yang ada didalamnya. Yang kedua, sebagian wanita merasa puas ketika melihat pasangannya “keluar” dengan jumlah yang cukup banyak. Ada banyak CARA MEMPERBANYAK SPERMA, selain memperbaiki pola hidup, kaum pria perlu untuk mengkonsumsi beragam buah – buahan atau makanan lainnya yang memiliki tingkat likopen yang tinggi. Salah satu buah yang memiliki kadar likopen yang tinggi adalah jambu biji merah, yakni memiliki 5.200 mg likopen per 100 mg buah.

Selain jambu biji merah, semangka juga memiliki kadar likopen yang besar yakni 4.100 mg per 100 mg buah, dan 56,6 % dari tomat adalah likopen. Dengan CARA MEMPERBANYAK SPERMA melalui konsumsi buah – buahan, bukan hanya jumlah sperma bertambah, tubuh juga akan bertambah sehat.

8. Ciri-Ciri Spesifik Sperma Sehat

Sperma Sehat
Banyak orang yang berpikir bahwa kualitas hubungan adalah tergantung dari kepuasan pasangan yang berhubungan. Itu memang benar jika kita melihatnya dari aspek psikologis. Namun dari segi kesehatan, terutama bagi pria, hubungan yang berkualitas tersebut bisa dilihat dari SPERMA SEHAT yang dimiliki oleh pria. Berikut ini merupakan sedikit penjelasan mengenai kategori sperma yang sehat.

Kesehatan Sperma
Ada banyak hal yang memperngaruhi kualitas dari sperma laki – laki. Seperti gaya hidup, hormone, riwayat penyakit, dan lain sebagainya. SPERMA SEHAT tentunya memiliki ciri seperti memiliki warna yang putih atau berwarna abu – abu. Terkadang bisa sedikit kekuningan. Selain itu sperma haruslah lengket dan tidak encer. Jumlah cairan yang keluar pada saat ejakulasi berkisar satu setengah sendok makan. Untuk mengetahui lebih lanjut, kita bisa membawa sample dari sperma yang kita miliki untuk diujicoba didalam lab terkait dengan jumlah sel yang terdapat didalamnya, kemampuan berenang, dan bentuk dari sel tersebut.

Penaikan kualitas atau gaya hidup, dan juga memperbanyak konsumsi herbal dapat membantu untuk meningkatkan kesehatan sperma. Seperti rajin mengkonsumsi bawang merah untuk memperbaiki kinerja dari alat reproduksi. Sebab bawang merah memiliki zat afrodisiak yang kuat yang sangat berperan untuk peningkatan fungsi organ reproduksi. Sehingga kita bisa mendapatkan sperma yang sehat. Jika SPERMA SEHAT maka kualitas hubungan akan semakin baik, dan keharmonisan tentunya lebih terjaga.

10. Transformers Construct-Bots may be on our Christmas list #giveaway

Thanks to Hasbro we got to check out a couple new action figure sets from Transformers Construct-Bots. 

"Construct, Customize, Convert"
 


Zach and I constructed two different Construct-Bots.  First we got Starscream (40 pieces) which is a Scout class action figure (approximate retail $9.99).  The Scout class action figures include a robot frame, armor, a weapon and accessory parts so you can construct, customize and convert your character.  Each character can convert from robot to vehicle and back without taking it apart.

This one seemed pretty easy to build.  Zach did most of it himself, just needing a little help with a couple pieces that seemed harder to put in place.  They are recommended for ages 6+ which seems pretty age appropriate to me.  Zach didn't want to convert Starscream into a plane, so I tried it myself.  I didn't quite get it how it was shown in the instructions, so I just converted it back to the robot.  I found the pieces to be lighter weight than some other Transformer types of toys (that yes I have bought my husband for Christmas), but they also priced much less than the others I have bought.  They do convert, like it says, with out having to take anything apart.  As for the customization.....there is not a lot to customize if you have just one Construct-Bot.  If you have two or more then you can really customize them in many different ways.  All the parts are interchangeable between all Tansformers Construct-Bots figures (each of which are sold separately).

Our second project was to construct WheelJack from the Elite Class (approximate retail $14.99).  This one came with more pieces (55 pieces) as well as a storage case.  At first this one seemed as easy to put together until I realized that 2 of the parts were quite alike and we had mixed them up.  We had to take it apart to switch the parts around.  Also we found what seems like an error in the instructions.  Each pack comes with a handy step by step instruction manual for both construction and converting.  For Wheeljack I think the placement of a part is incorrect in the picture of step 20 (page 22).  I found the if you use the picture of step 22 (page 24) to follow instead of step 20 then you can correctly place the L shaped piece.  If you follow the steps according to the instructions I found that the it ended up backwards.  I think they just made a mistake in the pictures, and it was simple to figure out the error, but I don't think my son would have understood what to do, as he does follow the instructions step by step.   I also thought it would be easier if they actually kept everything color coded like in the pictures but found some of the gray parts were black (or different depending on the character/parts).



We didn't try to convert Wheeljack as Zach wanted the two characters to fight....and this is how he has been enjoying playing with them.  He may however be more interested in converting a different character, Decepticon Dragstrip because he loves drag racing and these cars.  So I think we have another Christmas list item for him. 
 


We found you could have some fun if you interchange the parts to customize your own character.  Zach and I swapped some parts around and created a character we named Star Spinout!


 




The Transformers Construct-Bots also come as a Triple Changer Figure Assortment (approximate retail $24.99).  These can convert between three different modes.  Kids can customize Bumblebee like never before- with a triple changer than can convert from a robot to a race car to a jet.  Again you can also mix and match parts from other separately sold Tansformers Construct-Bots to create your own characters like we did.

You can check these out online at Hasbro.com/Transformers or at your local stores.   Thanks to Hasbro one of my lucky readers can win a Transformers Construct-Bots Triple Changer!

11. Brrr winter's here.....start the day with warm and delicious Smart Ones Oatmeal #giveaway


MMMMMMM.....mmmmmm......mmmmmm!  Love this stuff!  I love breakfast foods, but trying to get everyone ready and out the door does not leave me much time for a hot breakfast.  Yeah I could eat "instant" oatmeal, but why not enjoy a bowl of hearty steel cut oats with real fruit! 



Thanks to Heinz I have recently tried Smart Ones three new oatmeal flavors.  I was surprised to find these in the freezer isle.  They come in three flavors, all of which are very delicious.  I love them all!  The apples & cinnamon oatmeal is my favorite.  I love the chunky pieces of apples and crunchy granola that tops of the hearty oats! 

You can also get them in peaches and cream or maple and brown sugar.




Tell me these do not look absolutely delicious.  They taste as good as they look.  On top of it, how else can you get steel cut oats in a matter of minutes?  Normally you would have to cook the oats on the stove for several minutes, plus add in your toppings.  Smart Ones are portioned out, with all the toppings already added.  All you do is warm them in the microwave, and you have a hot breakfast ready as quickly as instant oatmeal.....but with more flavor! 




Check them out in your local grocery store today....just click above to get the coupon.  Or thanks to Heinz come enter to win some.  One lucky reader can win not one, but five full value coupons to try any or all of the Smart Ones oatmeal flavors!

12. SmartyPants vitamins ....gummy vitamins are not just for the kids #giveaway

Are you tired of taking multiple vitamins or supplements everyday, especially those that have no appealing flavor?   Smarty Pants created the first and only 3-in 1 Gummy Vitamin for Adults.  I have been taking these vitamins recently and love the flavor.  It kind of gives me my "candy fix" being able to have 6 gummies a day to get so many vitamins, and it includes Vitamin D and Omega 3s! 




 
Made in California in a GMP certified facility, always gluten & casein free with no artificial sweeteners or High-Fructose Corn Syrup, SmartyPants’ Adult Complete are made with Eco, Natural, and Organic ingredients. The only Multivitamin + Omega 3s + Vitamin D gummy on the market, SmartyPants is the highest quality solution that happens to taste absolutely delicious.

On top of myself enjoying the Smarty Pants vitamins I can now save money trying to find a multivitamin that my daughter will take.  She loves these!  She has many feeding issues, and I have found it difficult to safely give her a multivitamin. Many of the chewables are really hard, and many gummies are too tough for her to chew.  The smarty pants gummies are a soft gummy that my daughter has been able to chew them much easier than any of the others.  The toughest part  is not letting her have more when she is signing "more".  I have wasted so much money buying different multivitamins, but now can just stick with Smarty Pants and know it is one she likes....and like the adults, the children's include Vit D and Omega 3s.
At first I thought they were pretty pricey but when I checked out their site more they put it into perspective that SmartyPants are a great value!

 
Plus save more by checking out where you can purchase them.  I notice they are cheaper on amazon or you can save $5 by getting a coupon to use at a store near you. They are available online and in many Whole Foods as well as CVS Pharmacies.   Click here to see if they are in a store near you http://smartypantsvitamins.com/support-our-online-partner/ and here to redeem a $5-off coupon: http://bit.ly/19fVLEy
 
 
Or win a bottle here!  They have offered one of my lucky readers a bottle of the Smarty Pants 3-in-1 Gummy Vitamins for adults. 
 
Giveaway:   Congrats Mya Murphy -winner!

14. Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods #Giveaway




 
I know we have showed you other Angry Birds games, toys and creations.  We recently got to try out the newest lineup thanks to Hasbro.  The New Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods from Hasbro lets you play in two ways!  Play in your own space with the classic stack and launch gameplay, featuring Angry Birds Star Wars characters, vehicles and stackable environments.  Also play in virtual space!  Every Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods figure can be used with the included telepod base and a compatible smart device to "teleport" the character directly into the new Angry Birds Star Wars II app from Rovio (using the telepods button built into the app).  This is the first time Angry Birds players get to customize their line-up, and the first time they can play as the "Pork Side" and fling the pigs! 
 
We received Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods Endor Chase, and an additional figure pack to try out.  My son just recently got an ipad mini, and got to play this both ways.  He first played stacking an environment, and loved being able to knock them down by not using a sling shot, but by driving a vehicle up a ramp and crashing into it!  He loves cars, so this time of action was awesome for him.  He loves putting the Angry Bird characters in and driving them around, or racing them. He has also used the characters alone and put the pig (which was in one of the sets) somewhere along the house, to throw the birds at and knock it down.  The characters are nice and small, and kind of rubbery so they bounce somewhat also. 
 
I downloaded the new Angry Birds Star Wars II app onto it.  I did have to pay for this App.  I am not sure if the free apps have the "telepod" capability.  It was a 99cent app, so that was reasonable.  At first I couldn't figure it out, then realized that my son's Ipad mini had a rubber case around it which took up too much space.  You must have an iOS or Android device with a front facing camera to use the teleport function in this App.  I just had to show him how to slide his case a tiny bit so that the telepod would fit over the camera and read the Qreader type code that is on the bottom of each of the characters.  He enjoyed playing like this also.  He actually has been grounded from his Ipad this week, and today was really hinting around about the App while he was playing with the characters.  I am pretty sure this will be one of the first things he will be playing when he gets it back at the end of the week!

15. Comfort and fashion for your feet found at Sole Provisions



I have been searching for new shoes, and was very excited when I was asked to to review a pair from Sole Provisions.  I have been looking for a pair that were good to wear for work (as a personal care provider), as well as looking more fashionable than the normal athletic footwear.  Sole Provisions carries several brands that are known for their comfort and fashion.  One of my sister's favorites are there, Dansko, as well as Alegria, Backjoy, FitFlops, and many more.  I chose a pair of Orthaheel shoes to try out. 

They had many styles I loved, but for work I need to have a pair that are closed toes and have at least a strap on the heel.  (Otherwise there were some I was really debating that looked so cute!)  I kept going back and forth trying to decide which pair to get.  I chose the Myla style.



I love Sole Provisions website.  It was so easy to look around.  It was a great way to shop being able to check out the different bands without having to go all over the place.  What I also like is their "always free" priority 2-3 day shipping.  I received the shoes very quickly.  I got these just in time for fall fashion....which was great as I wore out my summer shoes.  It was also good because while I thought my "flat footed" summer shoes were comfortable to begin with, as they wore out, I was really feeling it.  My feet have started to ache a lot more and needed something with more support. 

Orthaheel are made to help control over-pronation, or rolling over of the feet.  I took a good look at myself in the mirror and really noticed that I was doing just that.  So I am now trying these out.  My first thought was that they looked really comfortable.  I put them on and thought no way.....but lets give them a chance.  Orthaheel has an orthotic built right in each shoe, which to me felt really hard when I put them on.  It wasn't very comfortable....at first.  As I wore them for about a half an hour I noticed my feet kind of relaxed around the support and it became much less noticeable.  They do recommend you start by only wearing them for a couple hours at a time to let your body get used to them.  I did just that, but am now finding I choose to wear these most often.  While the arch feels hard when you first put them on, they actually are quite comfortable. 

I am not sure over all if they are helping with  my foot pain or not.  I have been doing a ton of standing and walking lately between work, and harvest season.  I have been trying to wear these shoes to work, as I can't really wear them in the garden.  This morning as I posting this I am sore, but feel it is because I have not wore these much this weekend, and have been canning vegetables for three straight days.  While I still feel sore right now, I am hoping the Orthaheel shoes will help.  I was barefoot one day standing at my counter working on canning tomatoes.  My back and feet were killing me.  I decided to pop on my orthaheel shoes, and did find relief to my back.  So I do think they help!  Now to just quit standing so much at once, and hopefully these shoes will do the trick.  Orthaheel are designed to help with foot pain, achy legs, bunions, shin pain, flat feet, knee pain, back pain and heel pain.  On a side note about the heel pain....if you try these out, wear socks.  I did not wear them the first day trying these shoes out, and they rubbed the back of my heal.  I had a sore so I actually couldn't wear them for a few days.  Now that I wear socks with them I haven't had any problems.  This isn't really what they mean by helping with heal pain, but I thought I would share my experience. I am looking forward to wearing these comfortable shoes more and hoping they do help with many of these conditions that I do suffer from.

*update- 11/13
I have been wearing these many days for work (as a caregiver).  I have found that everyday that I have worn these I have not had any backaches!!!  The days I have worn my sneakers typically my lower back has been sore by the end of the day.  I still get achy feet no matter what I wear but these surely have been a back saver for me! 

For more information on Orthaheel, or other brands sold by Sole Provision please visit www.soleprovisions.com or follow them on facebook (which right now they have a giveaway going there), twitter, or  pinterest.  I know I will be checking them out as there are so many styles that would be great for work and fun!

17. Love when shows embrace disABILITIES

On Friday, September 27, a new friend is coming to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood in a brand-new episode of the critically-acclaimed animated series for preschoolers from The Fred Rogers Company on PBS KIDS (check local listings)! The engaging show will explore an especially meaningful theme, one that was close to the heart of children’s TV pioneer Fred Rogers – that in some ways we are different, but in so many ways we are the same.
 
 
I’d like to “introduce” you to Chrissie, Prince Wednesday’s 6-year-old cousin, who plans to visit the Neighborhood of Make-Believe frequently. Daniel really likes it when Chrissie comes around, because she is friendly, outgoing and knows how to use her imagination very well! Chrissie uses crutches as well as braces on her legs to help her walk. When asked about her disability, Chrissie proudly talks about the many things she’s able to do on her own, as well as what she needs help with. Chrissie’s matter-of-fact responses give Daniel, as well as young viewers, a wonderful opportunity to learn about someone who is different from a preschool perspective.
When you help your young child realize that differences are okay, you set the stage for them to appreciate diversity throughout their life. Here are some tips from The Fred Rogers Company and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood to help you reinforce with your own little “neighbors” at home that everyone is special in their own way!
· Model Friendliness – Children learn from example and from the things we say. Help your children respect others by the way you greet people, talk with them, and speak about them afterwards.
· Create a Family Book – Work with your child to create a book together about your family titled, “How We’re Alike and How We’re Different.”
· Meeting New Friends Sit down with your child and talk about how it feels to meet someone new. Reassure them that we all can feel a little shy, scared or confused when people look or behave differently.
· Value Differences – Arrange a small get-together with one or two other families. Each could make a snack that may be new or different to the others, possibly an ethnic food or one that's special to their family in other ways.
 
 
Having children with special needs and physical disabilities I have been in many of these situations.  I love when shows present these issues to children young.  Our children really do see how us adults react to differences and these are good ways to help them understand.  I know many adults do not necessarily understand these types of issues themselves, and have found talking to the kids actually helps them too. 
 
My simple tip:  If you encounter your child staring at a child with a disability, or that may be acting differently.  Don't just shoo them away.  Let them say "HI" and see what happens.

24. Celebrate "Neighbor Day" this Labor Day with Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood



 
 
Summer may be coming to a close, but Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, the critically-acclaimed animated series for preschoolers from The Fred Rogers Company, will keep hearts warm with “Neighbor Day,” a charming, brand-new half-hour special premiering nationwide this Labor Day on PBS KIDS (check local listings).  

 

On Monday, September 2, fans young and old will learn, alongside Daniel and his friends, how one simple act of kindness can snowball in wonderful and unexpected ways. In the adorable new special, Daniel’s first good deed starts a chain reaction of kindness all around the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, culminating with King Friday’s proclamation of an official “Neighbor Day”!

 

And there’s even more to celebrate! This Labor Day also marks the first birthday of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood! Daniel Tiger and his friends, O the Owl, Katerina Kittycat, Prince Wednesday and Miss Elaina, first “met” children and families from coast-to-coast one year ago, inviting them on fun and engaging adventures through a colorfully re-imagined Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Since then, the top-rated series has delighted viewers of all ages with its engaging and relatable stories and characters as well as its catchy musical strategies that reinforce the early learning theme in each episode.

 

“Neighbor Day” shows preschoolers that doing something nice for their neighbors can be a rewarding experience that makes them feel good about themselves – a message very near and dear to the beloved children’s entertainment pioneer Fred Rogers. Every episode of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood was inspired by Rogers’ unique vision and this debut special is no exception.

 

To help encourage neighborliness with your little ones at home, here are some tips inspired by “Neighbor Day” and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood that will help show your preschoolers that doing something nice for their neighbors can be a rewarding experience that makes them feel good about themselves! 

 

·         Volunteer!:  Check out your local food bank, library or neighborhood park for opportunities for your family to contribute, whether it is going through your house with your preschooler and donating extra canned goods or old books  or helping plant brand-new trees!

·         Play outside and meet new people!:  Bring your young children for a fun visit at the neighborhood playground, so they can make new friends and interact with old friends, too!

·         Ask to help!:  When your family sees someone who might need a hand, offer it!  Work together with an elderly neighbor who needs extra assistance in their yard or even have your preschooler help take care of a friend’s pet while they’re away on an end-of-summer trip.  You can also just talk with your child about times when you helped someone in need.

·         Smile and say, hello!:  Sometimes the littlest things makes the biggest difference!  When you are walking through your own neighborhood with your kids, greet passing neighbors with a friendly smile and a “hello” – you might just brighten someone’s day!

·         Make Coupons for Giving: Help your child create homemade paper coupons for kind and helpful acts, like “a hug,” “help with household chores” or “reading a book to a younger sibling.”
