You were probably the happiest you have ever been the day your child was born. The bond between you and your child is the strongest feeling that you will know. This article is devoted entirely to the preservation and enhancement of that unbreakable bond.
If you clear a spot on the kitchen countertop, next to the sink, you can lay your child on a towel there and wash his hair and scalp under the faucet. Over time, this may make a toddler more receptive to the idea of being submerged or doused with water.
Although it is important to spend time with your kids, it is also important to take time for yourself. This helps you keep your individuality, while also being a great parent.
Never give any child under three years of age any type of soda to drink. You need to provide your child with drinks that are nutritionally sound and agreeable to their stomachs so things like milk, water and sugarless juice are more acceptable.
Retro-reflective materials are very beneficial and an upgrade to the traditional backpack for your child. These materials also have strips of Velcro for easy attaching and detaching. Retro-reflective materials, whether Velcro or tape, make children more visible if they’re walking prior to sunrise or after dark. No matter what time of day it is, wearing reflective materials draws drivers’ attention to your children’s presence and makes road accidents less likely.
Never give any type of soda to a baby or toddler. Provide your child with healthy drinks, such as milk, diluted fruit juices or plain water.

Use these guidelines to make the most of your time with your child. Parenting is a lot like gardening; it takes a lot of preparation and work, but the end product is indescribably beautiful.
