A child is a child, informal, and is also a child. Sometimes the world of the child means a kind of soft leather goat leather. "I think it is very important that the children see in the literature. You deserve this indescribable feeling when you have a book and you really speak when you think you are not alone. "Same-sex parent children deserve to know that their family is like any other family. Pride Month is the global event that cities and communities around the world will celebrate the pride of. These events were celebrating the progress that has been made and still being made by and for people, we are proud to celebrate the month of June. In recognition Pride Month, Toronto Public Library offers a variety of programs for all pride. It is no secret that the parents do not always let go. In view of the very real risks associated with the task, especially for young people from the village, there is something more exciting to see the parents support their children. And last weekend, people were found to be local pride, there was no shortage of parents, proud of the most in the mix. Many parents visited parades and pride events with their children.


Baby: 0-12 months
Toddler: 1-3 years
Preschool: 3-5 years
Degree: 5-12
Teens: 12-18 years.

Young adults: 18-21 years


Always on the discussion: the opportunity to talk your children about these topics in a certain objective and reasonable manner, no matter what you personally are a sign of great child rearing. Even if you have religious objections to various aspects of this world and the laws surrounding it, have an honest conversation, open and non-inflammatory to ask questions a long way to understanding their children as adults to increase the understanding of the world.
Use a rainbow with solidarity and pride: Whatever your connection to the community, this is the month of a rainbow to use with pride. Finally, everyone earns the same rights and the same people and shows support for a marginalized community and their right to life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness is the most positive thing you can do.


Your children have questions - and do not be surprised 

•    Why are there so many languages in the world?
Tell your child thousands of years, people from different communities around the world have invented their own words to describe their lives, so today people from the same region tend to speak the same language and some do not. The language also evolves over time: our own so much has changed that if you hear someone speak English 500 years ago it was said, difficulties would understand what he said.

•    Why did sick people receive?
Tell your child is usually because of the germ. These little creatures can find their way into our bodies through the air we breathe, and the things we eat or when we touch the mouth or eyes with unwashed hands. Most of the time, germs do not affect us, but sometimes the body cannot fight - and that is when we get sick. Occasionally, people also get sick because the body does not work properly, but cannot catch these diseases. Fortunately, in most cases, rest and medicine can help your body heal.

Thank you so much for sharing. I hope our visitors would like and leave comments.
Also have open discussions with children it helps them to “LEARN and GROW!”

Fireworks Safety Month (June 1-July 4)

To educate those using fireworks on the dangers and injuries that can result from careless behavior.
Be careful- Be safe!

National Fireworks Safety Month

Use Fireworks Responsibly to Avoid Injury

When using fireworks, it always necessary to be cautious, because of the severity of the injuries they can cause.
Burns on the hand are the most common, because the hand is always closest to them. These injuries can range from minor burns, to blisters, to severe burns that cause excessive damage to the skin. Hand injuries can also include cuts, broken bones, torn tendons, and in the worst possible occurrence, amputation. These injuries are the result of standing too close when a firework explodes, or trying to hold onto them as they are lit.
Eye and face injuries are also common, because of the particles that fly through the air after one has exploded. Hearing loss is also suffered by some users, due to the loud bang when the fireworks explode. Sometimes this is only temporary, but it can be permanent, and is caused by standing too close when the firework detonates.
When using fireworks, it is best to follow a few simple rules to keep everyone safe from harm.  Be sure to read and follow all directions before using them.
·         Children should never be allowed to handle fireworks.
·         When lighting fireworks, put on safety glasses to protect the eyes.
·         Only use fireworks outside in an open area.
·         Keep a bucket of water nearby at all times to soak duds with, and do not try to relight them.
·         Don’t light fireworks in any type of container, and never carry them in a pocket, because the friction of movement can cause them to light.
·         Keep a first aid kit handy, and if serious injury is suffered, seek medical attention.
Perhaps most important, never mix alcohol and fireworks.
