15 ACTIONABLE WAYS TO INSPIRE MANNERS IN YOUR CHILDREN

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, You are a leader- John Quincy Adams

If you want to know actions that inspired your kids, you are in the right post. Here are the 15 actions you can take to inspire kids anywhere in the world.

  1. When entering the house greet your children or even hug them. This should help develop their sense of love and self worth.
  2. Be good to your neighbours and never backbite. Never speak ill of other drivers when on the road. Your children would listen, absorb and emulate.

  3. When calling your parents, encourage your children to speak to them. When visiting your parents take your children with you. The more they see you take care of your parents the more they will learn to take care of you.

  4. When driving them to school, don’t always play albums or cds in the car. Rather, tell them some motivational stories yourself. This will have a greater impact – trust me!

  5. Read to them a short story and even a scripture a day – it doesn’t take much time, but very impactful in creating strong bonds and wonderful memories.

  6. Comb your hair, clean your teeth and wear presentable cloths even if sitting at home and not going out for the day. They need to learn that being clean and tidy has nothing to do with going out!

  7. Try not to blame or comment on every word or action they say or do. Learn to overlook and let go sometimes. This certainly builds their self-confidence.

  8. Ask your children’s permission before entering their rooms. Don’t just knock and enter, but then wait for a verbal permission. They will learn to do the same when wanting to enter your room.

  9. Apologize to your children if you made a mistake. Apologizing teaches them to be humble and polite.

  10. Don’t be sarcastic or make fun of their views or feelings, even if you “didn’t mean it” and was “only joking”. It really hurts.

  11. Show respect to your children’s privacy. Its important for their sense of value and self-esteem.

  12. Don’t expect that they will listen or understand the first time. Don’t take it personal. But be patient and consistent.

13.Pray with them. Show them how to pray. Lead by example.

  1. In addition, ask them to discuss their daily plans after the morning prayers. Children without concrete daily plans usually join others in executing theirs. They fall easy to peer pressure.

15.Hold them and bless them specially every morning.

*Please share with other parents.

1 Mysterious Killer Uncovered!

American and Chinese scientists have found that an antimicrobial ingredient commonly used in hand soaps and toothpastes could have adverse effects on colonic inflammation and colon cancer by altering gut microbiota, the microbes found in people’s intestines.
A study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine revealed that short-time treatment with low-dose triclosan led to low-grade colonic inflammation, and exaggerated disease development of colitis and colitis-associated colon cancer in mice.
“These results, for the first time, suggest that triclosan could have adverse effects on gut health,” said Zhang Guodong, assistant professor of food science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the paper’s senior author.
Zhang told Xinhua, “The toothpaste we use can enter into the intestinal tract, then impacting the gut microbiota.”
Triclosan is among the most widely used antimicrobial ingredients and is found in more than 2,000 consumer products and a National Health and Nutrition Examination survey showed that triclosan was detected in about 75 per cent of the urine samples of individuals tested in the U.S. and it is among the top ten pollutants found in U.S. rivers.
“Because this compound is so widely used, our study suggests that there is an urgent need to further evaluate the impact of triclosan exposure on gut health in preparation for the potential establishment of further regulatory policies,” said Yang Caixia, a postdoctoral fellow in Zhang’s laboratory and the paper’s first author.
Zhang’s team and Chinese researchers including those from Xi’an Jiaotong University investigated the effects of triclosan on colonic inflammation and colon cancer using several mouse models.
They reported that in all mouse models tested, triclosan promoted colonic inflammation and colon tumorigenesis.
The research team found that gut microbiota was critical for the observed adverse effects of triclosan, since feeding triclosan to mice reduced the diversity and changed the composition of the gut microbiome.
However, triclosan had no effect in a germ-free mouse model where there is no gut microbiome present, nor in a genetically engineered mouse model where there is no Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), an important mediator for host-microbiota communications.
“This is strong evidence that gut microbiota is required for the biological effects of triclosan,” Zhang said.
This study observed that triclosan altered mouse gut microbiota, increased inflammation, increased the severity of colitis symptoms and spurred colitis-associated colon cancer cell growth.

5 Gifts to Give Kids

Super kids, great kids are products of super parenting, great parenting.In the making of great kids, parents must be part of the equation. No luck is involved, it requires work, smart work.

Look at the most successful people in the planet earth: Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and Warren Buffet. It was always the vision to create business and deliver a lot of value to people that made them rich.

Parents should rather learn from these people because parenting is a venture. If we want success from parenting then we must approach parenting with a business mindset. We must give it a business approach.

Think about it.

These people have a clear vision of what they want their business to become. They have an end in mind, a vision. They have an idea of what the business will look like when it is done.

Likewise, parents should take their wards as their businesses and see who we want them to become. Most parents don’t have a clue of who their wards will become.

THE FIRST GIFTS will help you with that. It provides a clear vision of who our kids become when they are out of our sights. It tells us what gifts to impart to them to become who they are meant to be.

Here is a fact: A business looks and behave like its owner. So kids looks and behave like their parents. Better kids comes from better parents.

Another fact: The biggest investment in a child are words not money. Our children will always remember your words but spend your money.

Money is good but words are valuable to our children.

The Choice is Yours.

Watch out for THE FIRST GIFTS.
