Family's Summer Fun
It's time to have some actual fun with your family instead of just watching hours and hours of Netflix every night. The COVID-19 pandemic has left us all nervous, anxious, and bored. But it's time to fight back with some good, old-fashioned, family fun!   Now that it's summer, there are plenty of ways to get outside and have some fun -- but you can even enjoy your time indoors as long as you're together as a family. Here are some great activities to try this summer in order to strengthen your family bond and have some fun:
Conserve Water This Summer
Now that summer is here, you might be relying on a run through the sprinkler or a cold glass of water to cool off. But while water can provide us with a lot of relief when the weather gets warm, we also need to do our part to reduce excessive usage. Not only will conserving water and eliminating wasteful practices allow your family to lead a greener lifestyle, but you'll also end up saving on your monthly water bills.
Best Family Road Trip Ever
When you want to get away with your family for a little bit, there's no better way to do it than going on a family road trip. But when all you're doing is haphazardly piling everyone into a car for four hours, you might not have the best start to your family trip. To help you avoid road trip rage, here are a few important tips to consider.
Homeschool Like a Pro
Coronavirus has changed the course on how the world moves. One of the side effects is the closure of schools. For parents, the adaptations toward homeschooling can be chaotic. They may not be prepared to take the load of school work, especially if they're still required to report to their jobs from home.
teen with braces
We may not like to admit it, but it's clear that we're typically judged based on our appearance. And if your smile is crooked, it can, unfortunately, hold you back in life. Of course, crowded teeth or a crooked bite can also cause more substantial issues -- which is why it's important to take corrective action sooner rather than later. That's why we often see pre-teens and teenagers who have teeth decked out in metal brackets.
Prevent Allergy Development
Allergies are the worst. From mild symptoms like itchy eyes and congestion to more serious symptoms like trouble breathing and throat tightness, allergies can have a big impact on your enjoyment of life. Kids with severe allergies can be at risk for sudden, potentially life-threatening allergic reactions. And that's never something a parent wants to worry about. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can help to reduce the risk of your child developing an allergy while they're still babies. Consider the following tips below:
The holiday season also happens to be flu season. But the flu isn't the only thing that could be making your child sick. From shared germs in the classroom to their afterschool snacks, there are many things that could be impacting your child's health. To help you keep your kids healthy during this sickly time of year, consider the following tips you can use to keep your children happy and healthy.
 Sesame Street Is Helping to Shape the Conversation Surrounding Addiction
The opioid crisis continues to touch countless Americans every year. In 2017, Ohio health providers wrote 63.5 opioid prescriptions per every 100 persons, higher than the national average and cementing the state's struggle with drug abuse and addiction. But, of course, addiction doesn't discriminate. No matter who you are or where you're from, these issues can have a huge effect.
Camping yurt
June just happens to be National Camping Month, which gives families the perfect excuse to spend time outside together (especially once school is out for the summer). But while nearly six out of 10 American households report that someone within the home has gone camping and it's an activity that's only becoming more popular with each passing year, there are plenty of adults and kids who haven't experienced this beloved pastime for themselves.
Safety Tips For Drivers
Fall is fast approaching and over 55 million kids across the U.S. are getting ready to head back to school. With 13% of those kids biking or walking to class, it's important that you're keeping a watchful eye out for pedestrians in the morning and afternoon. Afternoons are especially dangerous. According to the American Automobile Association, approximately one in four child pedestrian fatalities occur between 3PM and 7PM.
