How do we begin? First, by defining the problem to be outside, separate from ourselves. An example might be, “We need to find a better way to deal with the laundry” (a situation) rather than, “You never help with the laundry” (which makes your partner the problem).
Another important piece of the fearless problem-solving process is for each person to say what each wants in regard to the situation, rather than what’s wrong about it. For some of us, saying what we want is more unfamiliar and challenging than to say what’s wrong. However, an essential part of defining the problem is listening to and exploring what each wants and how close or far apart the wants are.
The Community/Family Resource Centers are located in schools throughout rural and urban areas of Lane County. From Oakridge to Cottage Grove, CFRCs offer a variety of free activities for all families. The CFRCs are supported by the Lane County Commission on Children and Families and local school districts. Many also receive additional funding from LaneCare, non-profits, service organizations, local business, and community members who volunteer their time.
It’s fairly common for all of us parents to wonder if we are doing the best job possible in raising our children. After all, the day-to-day reality of child-rearing is a mix of, as Birth To Three says, “joy, exhaustion, challenge, stress and delight.” Being a parent can be overwhelming. At some point, every one of us will be tested, no matter what our intentions or resolutions may be.
Studies have shown that an expecting mother’s poor oral health may lead to an increased risk for having preterm labor, premature delivery, low birth weight babies and twice the chance of developing preeclampsia. In February 2010, the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology noted that bacteria from an expectant mother’s mouth had caused a stillbirth at 36 weeks.
As parents, our goal is to raise our children to be as healthy and productive as they can be. Simple preventive measures or early routine treatment will make a difference in your child’s oral health.
Fetal-infant mortality rates are like the tip of an iceberg. Beneath the surface are health, social and economic factors that work together to continue to put more babies at risk. These rates are a well-established, accepted marker for the health and well-being of a nation, state, region or community.
Life with twins is crazy. It is also completely amazing, challenging, hilarious, and by far the hardest job I’ve ever had! I’m sitting here listening to the girls chatter each other to sleep… wait, strike that, now they are both wailing. Such is the way with twin 2-year-olds. If I had a dime for every time someone said, “I always wanted to have twins!” I’d be a rich woman. Far fewer people have actually offered to babysit.
Everyone agrees that reading is vital to a child’s success. Research shows that there are six early literacy skills that are essential to creating a solid foundation for learning to read: print motivation, print awareness, phonological awareness, vocabulary, letter knowledge and narrative skills – in other words – read, sing and talk.
By adding these elements to your parent-child time, you will be preparing your child for reading and learning. It does not cost any money; it only costs your time.
It’s understandable that parents may be looking for a quick response or a short-term solution. And in responding to challenging behavior, many parents feel the need to punish or give their children a consequence as a way to modify or change their behavior. While “time out” can be an effective way to respond to challenging behavior, it may be difficult to have a successful time out. Indeed, many children will resist time out, which leads to power struggles.
