The 1 Toy Prince William And Kate Strictly Forbid Their Kids Play With

WORLD by Cailyn Finkel 8/8/2017

It’s hard to be a parent nowadays. Food and health alerts, dangerous toys and the widespread use of electronics makes it more difficult than ever to know what’s good for your child!

That’s why, when it comes to the use of one type of electronic, the British Royal family doesn’t play around. Even though it’s reported that Prince William and his beautiful wife Kate try to give their children (George and Charlotte) a typical childhood, there’s one item they absolutely forbid in their home!

A family insider told Us Magazine that both Kate and William know the importance of maintaining normalcy for George and Charlotte in the whirlwind life of royalty.

“While they feel it’s important to make them aware of their backgrounds. it’s also vital for both George and Charlotte to have as much normalcy in their lives as possible.”

That means plenty of time playing with toys, exploring with friends and a consistent limit on the use of electronics like iPads. According to those who are close to the family, iPads are strictly forbidden inside Kensington Palace.

The Royals believe doing so leaves more time to enjoy the great outdoors, spend time with loved ones and learn more about the world around them.

 

Apparently, they aren’t the only celebrities to forbid their children from using this common toy. Jennifer Lopez reportedly only allows her children to use their iPads on Sundays!

Kourtney Kardashian is also a strickler when it comes to iPad time. In an interview with ET Online, Kourtney revealed her usage rules.

“Now that all my kids are over the age of two, I do allow them limited time to play video games and watch television. We have a game room, so I allow 30 minutes of video game time during the week and an hour on the weekends.”

According to The American Academy of Pediatrics, this type of limited use of electronics follows the latest research and guidelines.

The site explains that:

– Children under than age of 18 months should not use electronic screens altogether.

– Children from 18 to 24 months old should only use electronics when consuming educational material, and such material should be consumed with parents.

– Children 2 to 5 years old should only have one hour of “screen time” per day.

– Children age 6 and older should have a strict, enforced limit to the amount of screen time allowed daily.

– There should also be clear “no electronics” areas in the home and parents should ensure that electronics don’t change routines like sleep and exercise.

Good money habits are important, and teaching them to your child early on sets your child up to be a financially savvy adult.

Fortunately, children are naturally curious about how the world around them works, and you can use this to your advantage. Below are some ideas to use when teaching your child about money.

THE THREE-JAR SYSTEM

The three-jar management system is an ideal way to teach kids how to count money and budget. Help your child set up three jars, each with different labels: spending, saving and sharing. When your child receives money, whether it’s an allowance or a gift, help them decide how much to place in each jar.

You can talk about how the money in each jar is to be used and why it’s important to set aside money for all three. This is a simple way to drive home the messages of saving and sharing, and the benefits of doing so.

TEACH BY EXAMPLE

One of the best ways to teach kids good money habits is to practice good money management yourself. Your child watches you more than you think, so showing them savings in action can inspire them, too. Here are some quick and easy examples:

  • Take a small amount of money and show how spending now may mean there will be less money later for something else, such as a vacation or a more expensive new toy.
  • Explain how the household finances work. You might discuss how each time you air dry clothes instead of using the electric dryer, you save money on your electric bill. Show your child how this can add up over time. Take a look at your electricity bill together to show them how much electricity costs.
  • When you go grocery shopping, ask your child to be in charge of making sure you don’t go over budget. You can give them a calculator to add up your purchases as you shop. Show them how much items cost and tell them why you chose to buy or not buy a certain item.

SET UP A PSECU ACCOUNT FOR YOUR CHILD

When it comes to teaching your child the benefits of saving money, creating a savings account for them can be helpful. Open a Custodial Account at PSECU for your child. If your child is between the ages of 12 and 21, you can also open a regular (non-custodial) joint account.

Set your child up for financial success early by opening a Coverdell Educational Savings Account to help your children pay for future post-secondary education costs.

When your child has their own money, they often become very interested in learning how to manage their finances. Use their account statements to show them how interest works and help them set financial goals to get them excited while they watch their total grow.

CANCER DIES WHEN YOU EAT THESE FIVE FOODS. IT’S TIME TO START EATING THEM MORE

Cancer is the deadliest disease on the planet, and commonly treated with big pharma products, which are packed with chemicals. The conventional therapies like radiation and chemotherapy just only worsen the patient’s condition as while killing the cancer cells it kills also the healthy ones. Therefore, it is about time to turn to the natural products which are efficient in killing cancer without any side effects.

Luckily, nature has given us foods which have the ability to naturally fight cancer. In this article we shall present to you the five foods that successfully fight off cancer and impede its further development.

 

Potent Five Foods in the Fight against Cancer

 

  1. Turmeric

This spice incorporates myriad of health benefits, one of which is preventive measure against cancer. Likewise, it is popularly used due to its efficacy

in reducing fat.

  1. Blueberry and Raspberry

Both berries are well known for their anti – cancer properties, particularly when ovarian cancer is concerned. The reason for their dark appearance are the presence of phytochemicals, which as well as greatly assist in the prevention of cancer. Moreover, blueberries and raspberries are likewise known for their reductive effect on oxidative stress and angiogenesis.

  1. Dark chocolate

It may seem unbelievable, but it is true that dark chocolate can assist in the fight against cancer cells. This delicious dessert also improves your mood, and your heart condition. Therefore, consume as it is healthy, yet do it in moderate quantities.

  1. Tomato

A newly conducted research at the Harvard University revealed that the chances of prostate cancer are lowered by 50% if you eat cooked tomatoes on regular basis. It has been confirmed that tomatoes areremarkably effective in hampering the angiogenesis, due to the high content of lycopene, a substance with potent anti – angiogenic properties.

According to health experts lycopene is easily distributed through the body’s digestion system because it breaks down in our body fat. Moreover, lycopene concentration increases when it is exposed to higher temperatures. For that reason, cooked tomatoes are very effective for stopping cancer growth.

Dating a stranger isn’t unheard of in our 20s and 30s. Apps like Coffee Meets Bagel and OkCupid make it easy to filter our settings, so we’re matched with friends of friends. When people ask us if we want to be set up, we immediately want to know everything about the person before we meet them. We can research and vet our prospects all we want, but how the dates go from there is a mystery. It sounds exciting but also very scary.

I met my boyfriend, Andy, while traipsing through Portland, Oregon with mutual church friends. Right away, I sensed our differences. Geographically, we live on opposite coasts. He’s a Generation X. I’m a millennial. He’s a die-hard basketball fan. I know nothing about sports. Though both of us didn’t have fond memories of dating strangers before, we gave long distance a shot. A year later, we’re getting engaged and planning our wedding.

Here are 7 eye-opening lessons I learned from dating a stranger.

1. Be humble.

I’ve talked to brothers who have an idealized view of what’s attractive in women, but sometimes those qualities aren’t evident in their own character. Sisters can smell arrogance and self-righteousness from miles away. Getting rejected is a natural part of asking someone out but how we react is telling of our character. Paul says in Romans 12, “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.”

Sisters in the church say they want an organic dating relationship that springs from friendship, but it tends to keep them from considering certain brothers. Other times, when a brother comes out of left field and asks a sister out to coffee, it feels aggressive. If we’re wondering where all the men are but don’t give them a chance, we could be missing opportunities for them to surprise us into reconsidering our preconceived notions.

Even though I wasn’t initially attracted to Andy, I remained open to getting to know him. As I got to know him better, my attraction for him grew. I was surprised by how much we had in common and the chemistry we felt, but I would’ve never known if I rejected him.

2. Pray together.

When you’re dating a stranger, it doesn’t matter how much time you spend with them. If you’re not spending quality time, it’s hard to get to know each other on a deeper level. Personally, I’ve noticed it’s more difficult to have substantive conversations in person than on the phone.

I found the key to spending quality time in person is through prayer.

When Andy suggested praying after our first date, I felt awkward. Sadly, I’m not in the habit of praying with people after hanging out. Over time, I warmed up to it and realized it’s the best thing we can do for our relationship. What I enjoy about praying together is how honest and vulnerable our hearts can be while keeping Christ at the center.

3. Set boundaries.

When it comes to physical boundaries, people have different comfort levels. Learn to respect each other’s limits. If the struggle is neither of you have any, talk about why that is and how that’s affecting your ability to maintain purity and be free from temptations.

The first time my boyfriend and I talked about physical boundaries, I asked to limit it to handholding. We agreed that’s what we’re both comfortable with. As we get to know each other better, we continue to talk about where to draw the line.

We’ve also practiced setting boundaries with family. Both of us are people pleasers, so it’s easy to persuade ourselves to let our closest family members influence our decisions. But we remind each other that family is important but comes second to our relationship.

4. Seek community.

One of the joys of Christian dating is reaping the benefits of prayers people have sown and continue to sow into you and your partner. Invite friends and pastors into your lives and journey with couples who are just starting out and those who are happily married.

As I prepare to move to Portland, Andy and I have talked about finding a church right away and investing in the community, so we make friends and don’t become an island.

5. Be intentional.

When you’re first dating, it’s easy to get swept up in the lovey-dovey feelings of the honeymoon stage. But that won’t always last so don’t stay head in the clouds for long. Be honest about how you feel and where both of you see the relationship headed. Two people can be in different places, so be patient with one another and suggest a timeline.

When my boyfriend first hinted at marriage, I felt a knot in my stomach. I wasn’t ready to go there, and I told him. He understood, and we set a timeline of six months into dating to talk about whether we see our relationship in the context of marriage. To his surprise, I was open to talking about marriage three months into dating. It helped that he made his intentions clear by opening up the door and letting me walk through it when I was ready.

6. Communicate effectively.

My boyfriend and I have had lots of miscommunications over text and on the phone. Sometimes, he wouldn’t understand how to empathize with me other than with a dry, “I’m sorry you feel that way,” after which I felt dismissed. It was hard to bring up at first because it seemed petty, but I’d get short with him and passive aggressive. He could tell I wasn’t happy with him. So we talked about ways that his responses can indicate more emotion. I suggested he use emojis and let me know when he’s in the middle of something and needs more time to respond. Communicating often helps me calm down.

Meanwhile, I confess I have a short attention span and tend to check my notifications while I’m on the phone with Andy. He totally knows when I’m doing that because I can’t multi-task, and my responses sound airy and aloof. He told me how he felt about that, so I made a commitment to no longer check social media while talking to him unless I ask him first. As we learn to communicate better, we keep love and forgiveness close at hand.

7. Receive forgiveness.

There are times when it’s hard to forgive because the hurt runs deep in our history and childhood memories. Before we forgive the stranger we’re dating, we must forgive ourselves. But in order to believe that we’re forgiven, we must understand God’s grace. In Ephesians 2:4-5, Paul says because of God’s great love for us, He made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions. It is by grace we have been saved. When we look to the cross, we’re reminded of how wretched our sins are but also how deeply loved we are. Jesus offers us abundant grace so we can fully receive forgiveness.

Later on in Ephesians 2:10, Paul says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” It’s important to see each other the way God sees us, through the eyes of mercy and grace and in the likeness of Jesus Christ. Andy and I are readingThe Meaning of Marriage by Tim Keller, and one insight we found helpful is when Keller says:

No matter how well two people know each other in a dating relationship they become strangers again in marriage.

It’s because there are certain aspects of our character that we don’t see until marriage brings them out. We have a choice. Either flee or forgive.

When we begin to view our significant other as God’s masterpieces, no matter what kind of semi-stranger we’re confronted with into marriage, we can confidently and joyfully say on our wedding day, “As great as you look today, someday you will stand with me before God in such beauty that it will make these clothes look like rags” (Keller).

HAVE A JOYFUL SHAVUOT!

Chag Shavuot Sameach! HAVE A JOYFUL SHAVUOT!

Commonly known to Christians as Pentecost, Shavuot is one of four spring festivals and one of three Jerusalem pilgrimage festivals. In Christian tradition, this same festival is called Pentecost for the Greek term which means “50”, as this fourth spring festival is observed on the 50th day after Passover.

Biblically, to observe Shavuot, Jewish men would sacrifice in the Temple, presenting an offering of grain, two loaves, a bull, a ram, a male goat, and two male lambs for sin, sacrifice, and peace offerings.

After the destruction of the 2nd Temple in 70AD, many Jewish traditions developed that associated Shavuot with the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.

Modern Jewish observance of Shavuot includes reading the Book of Ruth, spending the entire night studying Torah until dawn, chanting the Ten Commandments, decorating synagogues and homes with aromatic spices, and partaking of a dairy meal and dessert.

Now, if Passover is fulfilled in the death of the Lamb of God, Unleavened Bread in His sinless character, and First Fruits in His resurrection, then we must ask ourselves – how is Shavuot (Pentecost) fulfilled by the first coming of Jesus? The 120 Disciples (Acts 1:15) were in one place, in one mind, praying and focusing on God’s work.

They were waiting in obedience to the command of Jesus (Acts 1:4-5) and also in obedience to the Laws of Shavuot regarding “no work” (Leviticus 23:21). Many were pilgrims who had left their homes in other places to be part of this festival.

God would bless their obedience now in a powerful way. After some days of patient waiting, the presence and power of the Holy Spirit fell upon the disciples on the 50th day after Passover. The initial giving of the Torah by Moses at Mount Sinai in Exodus 19, and likewise a new revelation, was given on Shavuot/Pentecost!

Today we celebrate not only the signs and wonders of Sinai, but the giving of the Holy Spirit and oneness of the Body of Messiah, consisting of both Jewish and Gentile believers united in faith. What a wonderful thing to celebrate!

Comments Off on Unfortunately, Most Victims Of Emotional Abuse Don’t See It For What It Is Until They Are In Far Too Deep To Get Out Easily.

Here Are 27 Warning Signs That Need To Be Taken Seriously.

1. When your partner is unhappy, you are always to blame.

2. They become angry if you do not answer phone calls, text messages, or emails right away.

3. They share your secrets, private moments, fears, insecurities, or even sexual experiences with others. Nothing is safe or off-limits.

4. They make your accomplishments feel small and unimportant. If you have a career, they likely treat it as a hobby.

5. They claim to always know what is best for you, and pressure you into allowing them to make choices that should be yours.

6. Your partner often accuses you of things that you did not do.

7. They make “suggestions” that you have no choice but to take. You are afraid of what will happen if you don’t.

8. Your partner often insinuates that they are somehow above you. They try to make you feel as if you are lucky to have landed them, and don’t truly deserve to be their significant other.

9. They demand to be included in all of your plans.

10. They become angry when you tease them, even in private and in a loving way.

11. They always win arguments. You always lose. There is no compromise or give-and-take.

12. Your partner sometimes calls you names or uses demeaning and offensive language.

13. Your partner may punish you by withholding sex, affection, or even conversation.

14. They criticize you in public, in small ways that only you can see – such as an eye roll or a disapproving glance.

15. When you try to express your feelings, they dismiss you as being too sensitive or emotional.

16. They constantly bring up mistakes you have made in the past.

17. They forbid you from seeing certain friends or family members. If they do not approve of a loved one, that person is out of your life – regardless of their importance to you.

18. They dismiss your ambitions and goals. They convince you that your dreams are impractical, unattainable, or even silly.

19. Your partner maintains full control of the finances. They often question your spending habits or prevent you from making reasonable purchases.

20. You are afraid to fail in front of them.

21. They always need to know where you are and who you are with. Sometimes they might even check on you.

22. They tell jokes at your expense. They may be personally insulting, or hurtful in a more universal way, involving sexism or racism.

23. Your partner’s personal and professional failures always seem to be your fault.

24. They control your major life decisions, including educational and career choices.

25. You find yourself falling into perfectionism and obsessive behavior to avoid your partner’s criticism. Still, it never seems to be enough.

26. When you’re with your partner, you feel like you can’t do anything right.

27. Your partner thinks it’s funny to humiliate you in front of people you care about.

If Your Relationship Mirrors This List, It Is Likely You Are A Victim Of Emotional Abuse.

I would urge you to leave the relationship as soon as possible and to seek help in maintaining your emotional well-being as you do so.

To Every Exhausted Mom Out There, You Are Enough.

Motherhood is one of the greatest joys in life, but it also is one of the most challenging experiences one can possibly face. From the sweet moments oflaughter and reading together to the difficult moments like tantrums, Mom and Dad are there for all of it… and sometimes, it can be really easy to get worn out.

In the following post, mom Bethany Jacobsdescribes those highs and lows. The lows can feel unbearable, but Bethany has three words for the moms who feel they’re failing: “You are enough.”

Check out her powerful post below:

To the mom hiding in her bathroom, needing peace for just one minute, as the tears roll down her cheeks..

To the mom who is so tired she feel likes she can’t function anymore and would do anything to lay down and get the rest she needs…

To the mom sitting in her car, alone, stuffing food in her face because she doesn’t want anyone else to see or know she eats that stuff…

To the mom crying on the couch after she yelled at her kids for something little and is now feeling guilty and like she is unworthy…

To the mom that is trying desperately to put those old jeans on because all she really wants is to look in the mirror and feel good about herself…

To the mom that doesn’t want to leave the house because life is just too much to handle right now…

To the mom that is calling out for pizza again because dinner just didn’t happen the way she wanted it to…

To the mom that feels alone, whether in a room by herself or standing in a crowd…

You are enough.
You are important.
You are worthy.

This is a phase of life for us. This is a really really hard, challenging, crazy phase of life.

In the end it will all be worth it. But for now it’s hard. And it’s hard for so many of us in many different ways. We don’t always talk about it, but it’s hard and it’s not just you.

You are enough.
You are doing your best.

Those little eyes that look up at you – they think you are perfect. They think you are more than enough.

Those little hands that reach out to hold you – they think you are the strongest. They think you can conquer the world.

Those little mouths eating the food you gave them – they think that you are the best because their bellies are full.

Those little hearts that reach out to touch yours – they don’t want anything more. They just want you.

Because you are enough. You are more than enough, mama.

You. Are. Amazing.


The letter has already touched the hearts of so many moms– and dads– out there.
