Homemade Activities For Lafayette Kids

It shouldn’t cost a fortune to get your Lafayette kids fun, educational toys. Here at the Lafayette Children’s Health Blog we want to provide parents with some ideas to keep their young children’s minds healthy. This homemade activity for toddlers uses an egg carton and encourages development of fine motor skills.

You’ll need:
Empty egg carton
Plastic Easter eggs, in assorted colors
Card stock, or other heavy paper
Markers
Puff balls, in assorted colors

Many of these supplies are probably already in your Indianapolis, IN area homes. For the rest, they can easily be found at any Maryland, Oregon, or Phoenix, AZ dollar store.

Indianapolis, IN parents can take the card stock, cut it into cards, and draw an egg shape on each card. Then color each egg in a different color-combination. Have your kids draw a card, and when they see they color combination, they’ll take the plastic eggs from the carton and assemble the same combination from the eggs.

Your Lafayette children will have fun while keeping their minds active and healthy as they practice learning their colors and copying color patterns.

Another great activity for Indianapolis, IN kids is to have them put colored puff balls inside the same color of egg. For safety, make sure the puff balls aren’t a choking hazard.

Flu Shot Guidelines For Phoenix, AZ Kids

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Flu Shot Guidelines For Phoenix, AZ Kids

Every year as winter approaches, many Phoenix, AZ parents wonder if they should get their kids a flu shot.

Everyone gets the flu, right? Is it that big of a deal?

In most cases, the flu is an inconvenience, but not detrimental beyond missing a few days of school. However, Phoenix, AZ pediatricians caution that it is extremely important for high risk kids to get a flu shot. Ditto if your child is in regular contact with a high risk person.

What qualifies a child as high risk? Phoenix, AZ experts say that chronic medical conditions such as diabetes or asthma puts a child at greater risk because the flu can contribute to serious complications. Many Phoenix, AZ doctors also recommend flu shots for all children under five years old. Phoenix, AZ experts advise getting your child’s flu vaccination as early as possible, in August or September or as soon as it is available, to protect them through the entire season which generally lasts from October to April.

Remember that two shots are required for children under the age of eight, given four weeks apart, for full protection your first year of getting vaccinated. Just one shot per year is needed after that.

Flumist is a nasal spray vaccine that can be given to healthy children ages two and up, an option that can be more child friendly. Side effects from either method of vaccination may include runny nose, muscle aches, vomiting, or low grade fever. The new flu vaccines offer protection from both H1N1 and the seasonal flu.

Dehydration Can Trigger Tantrums In Lafayette

Dehydration Can Trigger Tantrums In Lafayette

Most Lafayette parents have experienced a tantrum or meltdown with their children. My kids usually lose it when they are hungry or need a nap. Some kids flip out if their routine is altered. My Indianapolis, IN co-worker claims her kids get crazy when there is a full moon.

Lack of sleep and low blood sugar are the usual suspects causing irritability in my Indianapolis, IN child, but a new study in the Journal of Nutrition points the finger at another culprit.1 Dehydration seems to lead to a low mood in healthy women. The study only included young women, but I did a little experiment on my own kids and noticed when they were mildly dehydrated they were fatigued and irritable.

Lafayette kids need nutritious food and plenty of water to help maintain good physical and mental health.
I am Nena Pruitt-Merrill and I am an advocate for children’s health in Indiana. To learn more about Indianapolis, IN children’s nutrition and Power Squares contact me today!

Geo-Targeting Can Boost Your Lafayette Home Business

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Geo-Targeting Can Boost Your Lafayette Home BusinessJust because your Indianapolis, IN online business can sell to anyone on the globe, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to appeal to the customer next door. Specifying the markets you are targeting is an effective strategy for Lafayette internet business owners.

ListPipe, the corporate blogging authority, explains how localization can help your Lafayette home business e-store or blog:

The first reason is to appeal to the search engines for Indianapolis, IN search results. With the popularity and widespread use of mobile devices, search engines have been quick to respond with results based on location.

When you search for ‘haircut’, for example, Google assumes you want to know where there are salons near your actual Indiana location. Some devices provide an exact GPS coordinate for pinpoint accuracy. Others identify your general location from the receivers, routers, and other hardware through which your device is communicating.

Lafayette home business bloggers that include specific geo-locations will be more likely to show up in Indianapolis, IN area search results.

Another important reason for Lafayette entrepreneurs to get local with their content is to generate a connection with your Lafayette and Phoenix, AZ customers. While it’s always important to talk about the value of your products, you can add blurbs about a popular Indianapolis, IN sports team, current Indiana event, or unique local culture. This personalizes your Lafayette home business blog posts and boosts your popularity. Most Indiana folks love where they live and have a connection to other people in their Indianapolis, IN community. Let your audience know that you are one of them.

Now here’s the trick: make your content relevant to your business objectives. You can’t just mention the local sports team or a current event without tying it to your business in some way. Otherwise, you appear to ramble or pander inexplicably to your online business blog visitors.

I am chocolate specialist Nena Pruitt-Merrill. I coach new Lafayette internet business entrepreneurs and help them sell their products and services on the online marketplace. I use a variety of methods to market my Power Squares business and recruit distributors to my Power Squares direct sales network. Let me help you succeed: call 765-427-4963 today!

Indianapolis, IN Kid’s Health: What Is ‘Failure To Thrive?’

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Indianapolis, IN Kid's Health: What Is 'Failure To Thrive?'

Though Indianapolis, IN children come in all shapes and sizes and grow at widely varying rates, sometimes an extremely low weight indicates a medical condition called ‘failure to thrive.’

This general term is used for children who weigh significantly less than other healthy Indianapolis, IN kids their age.

According to Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, in cases of children with failure to thrive the rate of weight and height gain ‘may be more important than actual measurements.’ 1

Indianapolis, IN children in the ‘failure to thrive’ category weigh lower than the 3rd percentile. In addition, their weight is significantly lower than what is considered healthy for their height.

In addition, Indianapolis, IN kids with failure to thrive usually have delayed development in physical, social, and emotional skills.

In Indiana, failure to thrive can be caused by numerous factors, both physically and environmentally. Indianapolis, IN parents who are concerned about their child’s development should consult their pediatrician, even if no specific medical symptoms are detected.

Oregon Home Offices: Small Is Beautiful

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Oregon Home Offices: Small Is Beautiful Years ago, I remember hearing about an entrepreneur who ran a multi-million dollar construction company from her studio apartment, using a small closet as an office. Of course this was only the administrative headquarters, the heavy equipment was kept elsewhere.

I was impressed by this thrifty home business owner who said she had no plans to rent space and increase her operating costs as her company grew: she loved her little closet office and made it work.

My fellow Power Squares home based business owners enjoy the benefits of operating their own business from their Indianapolis, IN home: unlimited income potential, flexibility, and being their own boss. Some new team members recruited from the corporate world are initially skeptical about being able to run their business from a small home or apartment. Today’s article is about working in a small home office.

Think of yourself as an astronaut in a cockpit with all the controls at your fingertips. How is a cockpit organized? There are buttons and switches on every level, but all accessible.

  • Get a desk that fits your space. Corner desks can free up space not ordinarily used.
  • Office chairs with rollers let you easily access items within arm’s reach without having to stand up.
  • Shelves, shelves, shelves! Use all that prime vertical real estate on your walls.
  • Get a paper shredder and use it.

A paper shredder takes up some room but frees up space previously populated by papers you don’t need anymore. For example, invoices or sales orders that have been entered electronically. Some super-organized Power Squares team members regular schedule paper-shredding into their weekly agenda.

One drawback of home offices is the difficulty of holding meetings. It is hard to remain professional when inviting a client to your home office that doubles as a laundry room. You can solve this by holding large business meetings in rented Indianapolis, IN conference rooms. Small meetings can be held over lunch or breakfast in business-friendly Oregon restaurants. (Check for internet access before scheduling.)

Before you head out to your nearest Oregon Office Max to buy a rolling chair, desk, or shelf unit, take measurements of your space. This may save you a trip to return an item that doesn’t fit.

I am chocolate specialist Nena Pruitt-Merrill. Working at home running my Power Squares online business lets me work and play everyday. If you are stuck in the 9-5 lifestyle, let’s talk. My Power Squares team is currently seeking serious Oregon entrepreneurs. -Chocolate Diamonds are Forever, Nena Pruitt-Merrill

Lafayette Sun Safety

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Lafayette Sun Safety

Many Indiana families enjoy spending time together outside. Whether it is in the mountains or at the beach, fresh air and sunshine make family time a fun time. Lafayette parents should make sure that their children are adequately protected from UV rays when enjoying outside time. Young skin can burn easily and one severe sunburn in childhood increases the chance of developing melanoma later in life two-fold. Indiana babies should not even be exposed to the sun. Cover them with clothing and keep them in the shade. When your Lafayette child is six months old, limited exposure to UV rays is okay, but use a healthy dose of sunscreen and common sense. The sunscreen sold at your Lafayette supermarket or drugstore should be applied thirty minutes before your kids go outside.

If you are enjoying time at the pool or beach make sure to regularly reapply often.  When my kids swim at the Indianapolis, IN pool they take many breaks in the shade to reapply sunscreen and hydrate. My name is Nena Pruitt-Merrill and I am a Lafayette-based Power Squares representative and an advocate for Indiana children’s health. There are many things to worry about as a parent., but I never have to worry about the healthy snacks I give my kids. If you are interested in Phoenix, AZ children’s health and healthy snacking contact me today!
