This is just a tip of an ice berg as parents caring for at-risk youths have more questions than answers each brighter day. With the everyday life challenges that are rife in our society, like separation and divorce, people are exposed to temptations that more often than not young people have no choice but to face problems at whichever places they visit.
Another writing activity is to get children to think differently about Christmas. Ask the children to list five things that they don’t like about Christmas. This is quite an interesting activity that really makes the kids think of Christmas from a different perspective.
Remember to spy (physically go through your child’s things) only if they give you reason to believe that they could be in harm’s way. If your child is willing to talk openly about what is going on in their life then you should avoid going through their things and listen. Spying in this way should only be done as a last resort. Following your child around in an unmarked car is less meddlesome than ransacking your child’s belongings. Your child will not be too offended by this gesture, just a bit freaked out. So it is always okay to follow your child if you suspect something is wrong.
Personally, having three kids that play travel soccer, I am more excited about using the transporter for after-school activities. Picture this, your child gets home from school, eats, and does their homework and chores. Then, dressed in their uniform, you wave, and push the button. Just like that they are off to their practice. Multiple kids at different practices across town and- no problem! Just input the GPS coordinates of the practice place and push the button. Your biggest problem will be making sure that the right kid gets to the right event.
Rejuvenate your spirit. Take some time each day to connect with your higher power. Pray, reflect and meditate to connect with your spirit and allow peace to work in your life.
Will you allow smoking or visitors in your home during the care period? Do you care if the nanny speaks your native language or any other language? Au pairs are commonly younger women from foreign countries; is it important to you to have a caregiver from your locality?
Children know they have time set aside for the regular activities in their lives. They get up the same time each morning to go to school and go to bed at the same time each night. They have a daily time for play, doing school work and chores, and they begin to learn that a schedule helps them accomplish more. Your child will benefit from having a consistent routine but it is also important to teach them flexibility. You know, like when life happens!
This reason alone plays a huge role in the decision to home school a child. Another reason is the fact, it is usually the mother who is at home with the children. The mother or father may need to stay at home because they cannot afford day care or it may be difficult to get the child into the preferred private school.
