How to Prevent Holiday Accidents with Children

Every mother, every father, and every child of readable age should read this article. Not only does it contain sensible advice and practical help, but, in addition, gives a simple and happy method whereby children can be trained to be careful of their own and one another's safety.

It is unfortunate that many holidays are spoiled by some family disaster, which, usually, could have been avoided by taking the necessary precautions.

One of the lesser of these disasters is severe sunburn, which often necessitates the child remaining in bed for a day or so afterwards, missing much of the holiday fun, besides suffering a great deal of unnecessary pain. Children should have all portions of their bodies exposed by the bathing or sun-suit rubbed over well with olive or coconut oil before bathing or lying in the sun. It is a good plan to take a bottle of such oil to the beach or river and apply it to any portions of the body which show signs of reddening. If the oil is used unstintingly there will be no ill-effects and the child will brown nicely instead of being burnt. The mother who has been in the habit of insisting upon obedience in her children reaps her reward during holiday time when a failure to obey may result in accidents or loss of life.

The children should be trained to be careful of their own and one another's safety. To train them in this, one can institute the game of "Stop, Look, and Listen" in one's own backyard. On the word "Go" the children either walk or run towards some given object. At the word "Stop!" they must pull themselves up as quickly as possible, the one who does so the best having won the game.

When going out for walks the game can be expanded to include watching and listening when the word "Stop!" is commanded at crossroads. The game should not be played at every crossroad lest it becomes monotonous, but should be sprung upon the children as a surprise at the most dangerous corners. In this case, in addition to stopping quickly, the child must look and report "motor car to the left," ''Horse and cart to the right," as the case may be. This game also teaches the child to distinguish
between right and left, which might be of great value in some emergency.

Children by this means learn pleasurable to look in each direction before crossing streets or roads, to cross over without dawdling if nothing is found to be coming, and to obey the traffic officers. It should be pointed out to the child that so long as he is on the footpath there is no danger. In playing these games be careful not to let the child develop any abnormal fear of traffic. He should simply be made to feel that if he keeps the rule of the road all will be well.

Teach the children never to alight from train, bus, or motor car until it has stopped. A story of how a newspaper boy jumped off a moving bus and was seriously injured by a passing motor proves valuable here. Alighting from the wrong side of a tram should be prohibited.

Matches should not be left within the children's reach, and they should be taught from an early age never to touch them. The love of setting things alight to see the pretty flames is, unfortunately,  part of a child's nature, so a wholesome fear of the consequences of striking matches may justifiably be imparted by suitable stories.

A child should also have some knowledge of the dangers of electricity. Many very sad cases of lack of such knowledge have been reported in the Press lately. The child must learn that he is never to touch anything connected the electric iron, electric wires, broken wires, etc.

Make sure that you do not leave a chair in a handy position for a young child to climb up and get anything which is supposed to be out of his reach.

Beware of Their Imaginations

Sharp objects knives, skewers needles, pins, etc.-must be kept well out of the children's reach. No child should be left in a house by himself or with other children only. One may think everything is quite safe, but there is no knowing what devices the children's imagination may be productive of.

Beware of poisonous medicines! These should be marked with a red band and be labelled "Poison!" Keep such bottles and packages high up or well hidden. It is best to keep poisons under lock and key. In giving medicines be sure to read the label carefully, and do not take any medicine at night without putting on the light and making sure you have the right bottle.

If all these precautions are taken the holiday will not be marred by preventable accidents.

Are Parents Responsible for Children's Complex?

It is of great importance to see that the child is given every chance to meet life with a healthy body. It is of more importance to see that the child has a healthy mind.

Specialists are emphatic on the point that our characters are determined not by ourselves, but by our parents or guardians. The neurotic woman in most cases is so because of some defect in early training. The youthful criminal follows his line of activity, not so much because he can help it as because his parents or guardians presented him with an inability to cope with normal life.

Not so long ago important investigations were made into the question of the delinquent girls of certain Institutions. An examination of some thousands of cases revealed that nine of these girls out of ten came either from difficult homes or ones in which there was a certain amount of abnormality.
Examination of the boy criminal has revealed in many cases a similar state of affairs.

What are the things that are harmful to the child in the home? Firstly, all psychologists combinen to impress upon the world the fact that marital disagreement in front of children is one of the worst things that can happen. The child who sees its father and mother squabbling incessantly is presented with a complex which takes years to rectify; if, indeed, it is rectified at all. Sometimes marriages
are unhappy not because of the sins of the couple concerned, but because of certain defects In the lives of their parents.

Each parent has a responsibility of a different nature towards the child. From the father the child looks for guidance and discipline, combined with love. From the mother a child looks for tenderness and boundless affection.

When one or other parent is absent or deceased the child suffers from a disadvantage. It is very difficult for a single parent to combine the desired attributes of both. This brings us to the subject of divorce and separation, and psychologists are emphatic on the point that where there is only one parent in the home the child is under a handicap. when the occasions arise.

Things like drunkenness in the home, or outstanding vices on the part of either parent, have a tremendous influence on the child. A child who sees its father in a frequent state of intoxication cannot be blamed for having an abnormal outlook on certain questions. Another child who sees its mother pick up a pot and hurl it at the father cannot be blamed if she does  exactly the same when her turn comes to marry. After all, a child can only learn by imitating others.

                       For children's emotional security a strong bond between parents is essential.

How To Handle Puppy Anxiety Like A Pro

Some new puppy owners are so worried about housebreaking puppies that they forget to learn How to handle puppy separation anxiety. It's important for puppy owners to learn true puppy separation anxiety solutions. One way to do this is to get a puppy used to being in a crate. This can be done by using treats placed inside the crate. Allowing the puppy to freely go in and out of the crate will help build a certain comfort level. Closing the door once the puppy is inside will get the puppy used to being inside. The time that the puppy is inside can be slowly increased day to day.

Toys can also be used when dealing with puppy separation anxiety. Once the puppy is used to being in the crate for an hour or so, a toy or bone can be introduced to the crate. The puppy can then pass time by playing with the toy or bone. If a puppy ever starts barking while inside the crate, it's important for the dog owner to ignore the noise. Paying attention to the puppy while noise is being made will only re enforce this type of behavior. The puppy should only be allowed out of the crate when there isn't any noise being made.

For some people, learning How to handle puppy separation anxiety may be more difficult because they don't leave home a lot. Some retired people may forget that their puppies have to be trained to deal with puppy anxiety just like other dogs. In such cases, people can place puppies in other rooms once every so often so that the puppy learns that it's perfectly fine to be alone. Ideally, the room should be far enough away so that the puppy doesn't really hear that the owner is home. Doing this at night when the owner is going to bed can work. Pretending to exit the home is sometimes good because it gets the puppy used to hearing the door close.

Another puppy separation anxiety treatment is getting the puppy to associate leaving with good things. Putting on a jacket or jingling keys can be done just for practice. After these things are done, a treat can be given to the puppy. When it comes time to really leave, a puppy won't get nervous when these signs are noticed.
