Kids in the House Tour
It's no secret that our kids aren't exactly the most health-conscious when it comes to their habits. From picking their noses to rubbing their eyes after touching something gross, there are many things kids do that make routine colds and sniffles come as no surprise. Of course, we want our kids to be happy and healthy, too. So what can you do to help improve your child's immunity and boost their health this year? Here are a few simple ways you can strengthen your kids' immune systems without going over the top.
Hands-On At-Home Classroom
A large percentage of kids are learning from home. The pandemic has caused a mix of remote and in-person learning, and many parents keep their children at home full-time. If your children have been learning from home, you may have noticed that their school habits aren't present anymore. The routines schools provide can be difficult to replicate at home. However, to help your child maintain a steady routine and enhance their education, you may consider building an at-home classroom for your child or children. Here are some tips to get you started.
Stay Safe at Home This Winter
When you're a homeowner, you obviously want to do everything possible to protect both your property and your loved ones. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American household spends $2,375 on property taxes alone each year. But paying your taxes or even budgeting for regular maintenance may not be enough to protect your house and your family this winter.

As Americans face the harsh reality of spending nearly a year in a pandemic, many families know how important it is to continue staying home to stop the spread of COVID-19. Although 93% of children have seen a doctor in the last year, most of us don't want any reason to worry about the health of our kids -- so continuing to follow health and safety precautions is essential.
Part-Time Jobs for Teens
Teenagers find part-time jobs for a number of reasons, and there are several benefits to working while in high school. Teens can learn a variety of beneficial skills that can help them as they enter the workforce, attend college, or choose another path after graduating from high school. Plus, earning money helps many teens pay for their cars, gas, college courses, food, and other fun adventures. Here are five part-time job ideas your teen may consider looking into while they're in high school.
Bedtime Routines
As a parent, it's frustrating when your kid refuses to brush and floss their teeth. It's even more frustrating when your kids simply don't want to get up and get ready for bed when you say, "bedtime!" Many kids don't quite understand the importance of proper dental and basic hygiene, especially at a young age. Here are a few tips to get your kids to establish and adhere to a bedtime routine that won't cause a fight to unfold every night. 
Wintertime Play
Winter is always a bit more challenging for parents to navigate for a number of different reasons. For one thing, school is out of session for a fairly extended holiday break, during which kids aren't able to see their friends as often and are spending more time at home. This is particularly challenging for working parents, who may need to find childcare for younger kids outside of the actual holidays themselves. Children are also less able to play outside in some areas, simply due to cold temperatures and inclement weather.
Trade School Careers
Many high school students take advantage of trade school programs within their high schools. However, not all schools offer these opportunities to young students who are trying to figure out a career path to choose after obtaining their high school diploma. Whether your high schooler has received trade school training, would like to pursue a program upon completing high school, or is considering all of their job and college options, here are six trade school careers where hands-on learners would thrive. 
Many artistic teens would like to enter the arts industry after obtaining their high school diploma. However, the arts are often brushed off by parents who are not aware of the many possibilities within the industry. Depending on your teen's interests, passions, talent, and abilities, the arts provide ample opportunities to give back to one's community, work directly with children and/or adults, work for a business or themself, and make good money.
