WAYS TO SPOT BAD PARENTING

While I’m sure every preceding generation says this about the next, poor parenting choices seem to be a major problem today, and there are so many ways to spot bad parenting! glad i I found this

PHYSICAL ABUSE
If you see someone hitting their child, pulling their hair, shoving them, or any other rough movements, there is a great chance that physical abuse is going on.

EMOTIONAL ABUSE
Many people think that emotional abuse is not as serious as physical abuse, but the truth is that emotional abuse can be far worse than physical in some ways.

OVER-PROTECTION
This is the other extreme, the opposite of neglect. You shouldn’t ignore your children, but you shouldn’t be over-protective either.

FAVORITISM
If you see this in a friend’s household, it’s not a bad idea to find a tactful way to ask about it; some parents may not realize they’re doing it!

NEGLECT
I know that one of the first ways to spot bad parenting is if the parent is completely ignoring the child, and not meeting their basic needs.

How to thank your Parents

Your parents have done a lot for you. They may not be the best parents in the world, but they did try their best to give you the best they could. Here are 7 ways to thank your parents.

VISIT THEM
If you don’t live with your parents, chances are that you don’t get to visit them very often. Everybody’s life is hectic, but takes the time to go visit them and really talk to them.

REACH OUT TO THEM
If you are not very close to your parents, reach out to them. Use gratitude as an excuse to re-enter and become a part of their lives.

DON’T WAIT FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS
There are other occasions like their birthdays and anniversaries when it is easy to say thank you. But, not waiting for those occasions and saying the right words when the time is right is more important.

PUT IT IN WRITING
If words don’t seem to come out right when you are talking to your parents, put it all down in writing.

JUST SAY ‘THANK YOU’
Although this seems like the most obvious of all ways to thank your parents and sounds like the easiest thing in the world to do, it is not as easy as it sounds. On a side note, if you are in need of usb promotional items please do pm me.

RACES FOR KIDS

Races for grown-ups can be intimidating and not nearly as much fun as races for kids! And there are so many wonderful races that are designed just for young runners, there’s bound to be one that’s just right for your mini-marathoner or little one-miler.

RUNDISNEY KIDS RACES
If your little runner loves Mickey, Donald, and Goofy, then Disney is the perfect place to run! This kid-friendly version of the runDisney family of races features a cheer squad made up of their favorite Disney characters, with loads of goodies and a truly fantastic medal for finishing.

THE COLOR RUN
Okay, so this race isn’t designed just for kids, but you’d never guess. It’s sort of the foot-race version of the Festival of Holi, with a color-packet powder finish, and an upbeat, joyful atmosphere. I also love to take excellent fender bandmaster with us.

SPARTAN RACING FOR KIDS
I have nightmares about a race that involves mud and obstacles, but kids love that stuff, don’t they? That’s why the kid version of this popular race is great for kids who dream of racing through the woods, getting covered in mud

MERRELL “DOWN & DIRTY” MUD RUN ADVENTURE KIDS
This kid’s race, hosted by Merrell, features more mud, obstacles, and fun! The race is scheduled in ten cities across the country, from Sacramento to Philadelphia, with two different kid’s age categories.

MARINE CORPS HEALTHY KIDS FUN RUN
It features lots of mascots to encourage and entertain the kids and spectators. Last year, more than 30,000 young runners participated in this event. That’s amazing!
