Kids should Love School!

Learning to love school means learning to love LEARNING. Some kids are easy to encourage; some other kids may need a little extra push to love school. It’s an important task for parents to encourage their kids to love learning and have a learning enthusiasm.

Make your kid excited about the daily opportunity of learning new and interesting stuff. The worst you can do is strengthening her/his thought that school and learning are obligations.

Don’t focus only on your kid’s marks. Constantly good academic performance is the outcome of a healthy concern in learning. If your child loves learning new things, good grades will follow.

For Ruby Tuesday, I share a photo of my niece and nephew, Fira and Rafa. They always love going to school!

Banana Flower

The banana flower is a large, dark purple-red blossom that grows up from the end of a bunch of bananas. Its sizable bracts, or leaves, enclose delicate, sweetly scented male flowers. The female flowers, which do not require fertilization to become fruit, grow farther up the stem from the male flowers.

We, Indonesian people, used to call it banana heart. It’s edible; but you must cook it first. Have you ever tried it?

Sweet Saturday: Enjoying Live Music at a Cafe

In one Saturday night, we had dinner at a café that we’ve never visited before. I ordered fried rice and my hubby ordered oxtail soup. While we’re eating our dinner, a band’s crews came and started to perform.

The band played popular jazzy songs and the singer’s voice is nice to listen. We enjoyed their performance and watched the show until finished. They played several lovely songs from Sting, love it! Sorry for sharing lack of quality photos here; but you still can see our chubby cheeks, hehehe.

The New Routine for Baby: Massage care

The new technique of baby massage is getting a lot of attention for one basic reason- It works. Parenting is a contact sport, and it involves staying in touch with baby’s needs. The best way to do this turns out to be a new/ old system of physical contact, providing reassurance and some useful massage to help baby relax and get comfortable.

It turns out that the basic idea of holding baby and patting and stroking is the best way to deal with a lot of problems ranging from constipation to temper issues. Babies aren’t hypochondriacs. They’re a reporting system on their own issues, and few parents need to be told they don’t need encouragement to tell you what’s wrong, or at least try.

In practice, if you’re a baby, yelling your head off when you’ve got a problem is the best working option. This may not always be appreciated, but it’s the best and sometimes only shot at getting attention when you need it.

Situation management with massage

The new idea of massage is designed to deal with a lot of different situations, including:

· Digestion
· Stress
· Pre-term baby conditions
· Sleep
· Finding problems like sore spots and possible medical issues

A single massage, it’s been discovered, can deal with multiple issues. That’s not entirely surprising, because babies can be complicated characters. If you’re a constipated baby with an injury caused by a bump and understandably stressing out, a massage turns out to be just the thing.

For parents, the massage is also a sort of news headlines report. Real issues that cause high stress reactions can also be discovered by a massage. Sore spots which may indicate injuries or other issues are pretty easy to spot. Swellings and other signs of possible trouble can be found and checked instantly, and regular massage means that the information is current.

Most parents of young babies will recognize the values of infant massage on this basis. Baby can’t draw diagrams, but a massage can. If needing a spare pair of eyes with young kids is an essential, a pair of hands can do a pretty good job of supplying just that.

The therapy approach

Massage is also a good sort of continuity in physical contact which is a very positive element in both parental bonding as well as practical “baby maintenance”. The therapy approach cuts both ways, for parents and babies. Parents get the benefits of a happy baby, which can be like winning the lottery for sleep-deprived mothers and fathers. With this comes some parental reassurance, proving that things are OK, which deals with the underlying worries of parents at the coalface.

Adding to the therapy, babies are now sure they’re in the loop of care and comfort, which means that they can stop worrying about their own problems. That means that yelling one’s head off can be put on hold until it’s important, not an accumulated series of issues. Everyone gets some peace of mind and sleep.

Again, not a bad result for a massage, is it? Check out baby massage techniques and you’ll be surprised what’s possible.

I also linked this post to Ruby Tuesday. The baby is Azman, my youngest nephew.

A Tough Call- The Pros and Cons of Breast Enhancement

So much has been written about breast enhancement. Some people call it sheer vanity, airhead fashion, and other demeaning, too-simple things. Others claim that this procedure is the answer to the self-image issues of every girl on Earth. Not much of an analysis, is it? The facts about breast augmentation are far more complex. It’s important to understand, either as a parent or a person considering the procedure, that the issues need some deep thought.

The issues

Let’s start by clarifying exactly what’s involved in breast enhancement:

-It’s a significant surgical procedure, not a game, and some people really need to think carefully about enhancements. Cosmetic surgeons are real surgeons. They’re doctors, and they’re responsible for the procedure. If they advise against it, for whatever reason, think about the reason.

-It’s expensive, particularly if you want a quality job done. The occasional headlines you see about bizarre breast enhancements are a good description of how not to get the enhancements done.

-It’s a major alteration to the personal image. This isn’t like getting a new hairstyle. The personal image changes can come as a shock, and can actually be a problem for people unprepared for them.

These are three good reasons not to rush in to a breast enhancement and get professional advice before seriously considering a procedure.

Possible downsides

The possible negatives must be understood. The best surgeons will tell you:

-Some enhancements look fantastic, some look, well, “out of place”. It’s not a great look.

-Mistakes can be extremely expensive to correct. That’s why you need to deal only with reputable cosmetic doctors not the “cosmetic panel beaters” in the headlines.

-Some women have enhancements removed for various reasons. Although comparatively rare, there may be medical issues associated with some enhancements. Talk to your doctor about possible issues for a good objective opinion of your own case.

The positive side of breast enhancements

Please understand that the above information is absolutely basic to considering breast enhancements.The good news is a lot more upbeat:

-Breast enhancements can do a lot for self image. Many younger women are extremely self-conscious of this issue, and enhancements do deal with these issues.

-Breast enlargement can involve quite minor enhancements, done in consultation with the surgeon. This is a form of “image enhancement”.

-It’s not only young women who use breast enhancement for self image purposes. Many older women also have breast enhancements done to deal with image issues.

Demythologizing the media image of breast enhancement

The fact is that no woman ever considers breast enhancements as a trivial issue. This is about as personally meaningful as any form of cosmetic surgery can be for any woman, and it’s no joke. It’s bordering on either obscenity or stupidity to even suggest that women are either so ignorant or so insensitive to obtain cosmetic surgery on a “hobby” basis.

Ladies, they’re your breasts. Talk to the experts, not the ignoramuses, and make an informed decision.
