    Test: Who’s The Real Mother

    This test of identifying who the real mother is is a popular psychological behaviour test. You’ll need to find clues in the image to spot why the woman sitting on the right or left of the room is the mother of the child.  So who’s the real mother? You might pick up certain signs and are now wondering whether any of them have any indication of the mother/son familial bond. Does what they wear matter? Is the child’s proximity a give away? Is their posture important? Are you looking out for any biological similarities, perhaps? So who’s the real mother? If your choice is the women sitting on the left side: The majority would choose this woman. She appears  more mature, her hair is up, the fact that the child seems closer to her suggests that this is her chid. However, in this case it is not the right answer. The real mother is actually sitting on the other side. If your choice is the women sitting on the right side: You are correct, this one is the actual mother of the child.  Children often look for their parents’ approval, hence they usually face towards them while they are playing or doing something. That is why this woman is the mother.    Did you get the right answer? Share with someone to test their ability to detect.

    The Benefits of Dance for Kids

    “And I watched them, hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, as they danced by the light of the moon!” sighed Edward Lear as he watched his kids dance with absolutely no tune but the melodies of the stridulating crickets and the croaking frogs. Anyone watching would second Martha Graham’s thoughts as she expressed dance as the hidden language of the soul. Such is the beauty that comes from dancing – whether watching or being watched; you just can’t help but get carried away. It even gets better when watching little bambinos and bambinas embracing the beauty of the art and gracefully moving to every tune. Well, if that very reason isn’t enough to get your kid to the best dance school, then perhaps getting to understand how they will benefit will be more convincing. At the end of the day, who doesn’t want the optimal best for their little bundle of joy? Why You Should Introduce Them to Dance Earlier On Reasons here may differ since they are totally subjective. You should start by assessing whether they have any interest in the art. It would be futile to try and impose something on them that just isn’t for them. You shouldn’t assume that since you are or were the best dancer the same would naturally occur to your neonate. As a matter of fact, if you sense continued resistance, you should try exploring other fields. But, if they have embraced dancing in their hearts, this article is for you. Dancing is quite different since it can be categorized both as a sport as well as an art. This means dance for kids will have an impact both on their physical wellbeing as well as have a number or two on their mental, spiritual as well as physical. That is the first reason your kid shouldn’t miss out on any class. Look Good Feel Good This is a universal rule and it applies to every Tom, Dick and Jane: looking good translates to a good feeling which basically boosts one confidence. Dance for kids helps them become aware of their bodies from a very early stage in their lives. This enables them to accept who they are and even take better care of themselves at that infant stage. Imagine what this could mean for them when others are busy struggling to maintain a figure in their adolescence. You will simply be setting a smooth pace which they’ll have nothing but gratitude to you for life. Intelligence and Charm Remember when we mentioned the mental effect dance has on you? Well, dance for kids is known to bring about a higher sense of intelligence as most parents have reported better performances even in the school setting. We are yet to have a scientific explanation for that, but we can attribute that to the ability of dance to open up the body, mind and soul. What’s more, since your kids won’t be practicing alone in their backyards, it simply means Read more [...]

    6 Tips For Building A Healthy Family

    All of us want to have the perfect family. We want well balanced children who are curious and hungry to learn. We want relationships that nurture and allow us to grow to the best us we can be. But, that is a lot easier said than done.   Reality is that we are continually evolving as a family. We must balance work, school, sports, and socialization for each member of the family. We must identify weaknesses and find ways to overcome them in order to keep each of us healthy and happy. As the parent, the responsibility to keep the wheels turning belongs to us.   Below we will share with you, 6 tips for building a strong and healthy family. Of course, every family is unique. You will have to adjust the tips to fit your situation.   Set limits Many people want to glaze over this concept. Science has proven that children who grow up with defined limits are happier and better able to control their emotions. With that said; it is important that the parent exercise love and kindness. It comes down to teaching your child how to treat other people. Set limits and then help them meet the standards. This teaches them respect and understanding as well as responsibility. Have a family activity that is active Many families have children who are active in sports, dance, theater, and hobbies. But, a family that has an activity that everyone in the family is involved in helps you remain close and keeps everyone physically healthier. Perhaps you can go hiking a couple of times a month. You can try running, skating, swimming, or rock climbing. Try various things until you find something that everyone can do. Have a no-stress zone Stress is a major problem in America. The stress of everyday life bleeds over into our homes, and it is unhealthy for everyone. Set a stress-free zone. This can be the kitchen or family room. You can set it up so that the family knows that no arguing or complaining is allowed at the dinner table. This can be adjusted to suit you. It may include no electronics, no television, or no eating in your room. Have one place where the family comes together everyday and communicates. It will take a little practice. However, it is well worth the effort. Quality over quantity This is a rule that can apply to many areas. Spending quality time with your children trump’s spending long hours doing nothing. It simply means when you do something for your family or when someone in the family does something for someone else, it is done well. Here are some examples: Give your child your undivided attention during the family dinner. It doesn’t have to be a night on the town. A 30-minute meal where you focus on them is quality time. Treat them to something special. You may not want to give them buckets of candy, but from time to time buy bulk Ghirardelli Read more [...]
