Personal parenting tips to handle my 2 years old daughter’s emotion

I would like to share a few ways that can handle my 2 years old daughter with you. You can take it as reference. Different children have different personality and behavior. Share with me know if you have other methods.


1. Remind her she have a sister so that she can accept existence of her sister.

2. Consistent educate her to share and love her sister.

3. Create simple game that I can involve both of them to participate to increase their interaction and to create happy and fun time together.

4. Spend ~15mins personal time with her. Normally I’ll read story books, listen and sing song together, dance with her and etc as she like this activity a lot. You can observe what your kids like and dislike and create personal time with them. They will like a lot.

5. Listen to her. She might express her feeling. I remind myself to encourage the right things that she do and tell her the right ways when she does some funny action.

6. Involve my hubby in the personal time and game time as she know we still love her although she have sister now.

Back home life after confinement

How is your day after you back from confinement home? It was challenging for me as a fully breastfeeding mother to take care a new born baby and a 2 years old daughter. I was lucky I have mother in law to help around after back from confinement home. I need about 1 week to settle down after back to home. Proper time planning are needed for me to express out the breast milk to avoid crashing with both of their eating time, diapering, bathing, soothing baby, help around some house chores and etc.

Taking care 2 children were easy if you able to handle well. I am still learning. The difficult part were to handle my 2 years old daughter emotion so that she can accept and sharing her toys, books and etc with her younger sister. Sometime she would do some funny action to attract our attention. My eldest daughter do not know how hard she touch her sister face. She want to carry her sister and sooth her when she cry follow whatever adult do. We need consistently educate her the proper way to love her sister. Thus, I need to paid full attention on my new born baby safety. Do you face the same situation like me?

Hepatitis B immunisation key learning and schedule information

Doctor advice me to retake the Hepatitis B injection as my immunisation level is very low after deliver of my second baby. Key learning from me is don't wait for the immunisation level become very low and you need to retake the 3 doses. One dose of injection is cost about RM60 now. You can avoid it by yearly checking on the immunisation level. You can just take 1 dose of boost to level up your immunisation.

I found out this link is helpful on the Hepatis B information. http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Hepatitis-B-Immunisation.htm. Check it out.

The immunisation schedule ( source from http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Hepatitis-B-Immunisation.htm)


You need three doses of the vaccine for full protection. The second dose is usually given one month after the first dose. The third dose is given five months after the second dose.

One month after the third dose you may need to have a blood test. You may need one if you are at risk of infection at work, especially as a healthcare or laboratory worker or have certain kidney diseases. Your doctor will be able to advise you if you need a blood test. This checks if you have made antibodies against the hepatitis B virus and are immune. This is because for about 1 in 10 people, three doses of the vaccine are not sufficient and a booster is needed after five years.

The schedule is the same for the combined hepatitis A and B vaccine which is also available.

Pushing beyond your Limits with Dr. Andrew Goh

I like Dr. Andrew Goh’s talk which I attended this morning. I don't feel bored and he was humor. I could feel the sincerely, motivated, energetic vibration along the talk.

I would like to share what I learnt from him with you.

I agreed with him that life is tough. You have the choice to choose. (1) Don’t make it tougher or (2) Make it tougher. Don’t give up and push yourself beyond your perceived limits.

I agreed with him that every generation also get the chance to succeed. The road to success is always there. Remember you’ve got to bring yourself so that you can success and don’t give up. You will success as your life is not over yet.

I also agreed that the greatest investment that yields the best return is an inquiring mind.

Share with me if you have any thoughts. J

Confinement life

Any ones like confinement? I don’t like confinement totally. I need to follow a lot of pantang although I am not sure it was the right thing to follow. The concept was better suffers only for 40 days.  It would make my life better later. I can’t imaging I don’t take bath for 22 days. The first child I still can tahan for 28 days. Haha..

I stay at De-Garden confinement home for the 2nd baby confinement. From the first day stay. I was counting down the day back to home, counting down the day when I can bath and etc. Almost every confinement mother had the same emotion (home sick) like me.Do you agree with me?

Confinement home will provide 5 meals a day. The meal will serve every 3 hours. Almost same like baby eating time except for night time.

The most enjoyable things in De-Garden confinement were the food. I was enjoying eating the food prepare by Ah Bee( Cook in De-Garden confinement home). She was a good cook. She will try to cook the food that we ask her to make. So sweet and caring. Can’t imaging she always give me the biggest portion as I always can finish the food. She prepared pizza, chicken chop, spaghetti, oats and etc for the confinement food. Everyday looking the eating time. It was so delicious.


 My portion: 2 bowl of soup and big bowl of rice.











Normal portion: 1 bowl of soup and less rice.
Pizza..Yummy..Miss it a lot

Most people thinking i have a lot of rest time during confinement. I think No for mother who is fully breastfeeding. I need to express out the milk every 3 hours average to avoid breast engorgement and also express out the milk balance after direct feeding my baby.

Last thing that I miss in confinement is the friendship that was build. We help each others, encourage each other on the problem we faced and sharing experience.

Tips for nusing mother when baby Jaundice

Nowadays baby easy get Jaundice after birth. From Wikipedia, Jaundice, (also known as icterus, attributive adjective: icteric) is a yellowish pigmentation of the skin, the conjunctival membranes over the sclerae (whites of the eyes), and other mucous membranes caused by hyperbilirubinemia (increased levels of bilirubin in the blood). This hyperbilirubinemia subsequently causes increased levels of bilirubin in the extracellular fluids.

I just give birth my 2nd baby on September 27th this year. My 2nd daughter recover faster from Jaundice compare to my 1st child,. What i did differently is i fully give breast milk for this 2nd baby. I have misunderstood that giving mix breast milk with formula milk would help my baby recover faster from Jaundice. I get to know that baby Jaundice level will easy go down if baby able stool and urinate more often. With breast milk it will help baby stool and urinate more often. Thus, My 2nd daughter able stool and urinate more compare to my 1st child with the breast milk. Thus, she recover faster.

Besides, i also cut down taking ginger and " So Hup"  during confinement. Let me know if you have other thoughts.

Bad service at L*Z* Diamond at Lower Ground Penang Queensbay Mall

On 31st August 2010, my hubby and I brought 2 bracelets which need to repair spring hock and also repair the break apart bracelet in L*Z* Diamond at Lower Ground Penang Quensbay Mall. I went to L*Z* Diamond shop as I still keep one L*Z* Diamond receipt which I am not sure which bracelet belongs to. We show the L*Z* Diamond receipt to the sales persons and they told us that the receipt was belong to break apart bracelet. Thus, we only paid RM138 to change the spring hock for the 2 bracelets and they accept the receipt to repair the break apart bracelet for free service. They inform us to redeem back after 16 September.

On 17th September 2010, I went to redeem back the break apart bracelet around 2pm with my colleagues. I wear the bracelet in my wrist on the spot to make sure the bracelet is well repair. They also return back the receipt to me. Unfortunately, I found out the bracelet break apart again around 5pm.

I asked my hubby to brought the break apart bracelet to the L*Z* Diamond with the receipt at the same day around 6pm. To his surprise, the sales person claim the receipt item description is not match with the break apart bracelet. But, it is the same receipt which they just return me during noon time. They request him to get the right receipt for the repair for free service. I went back to the shop to understand the situation. To my surprise, they told me the same thing. They blame Anthony, one of the sales persons which make mistake. I questioned the sales person:
(1) Why they not inform me incorrect receipt when I redeem the bracelet
(2) Why they still repair the break apart bracelet although found out incorrect receipt and give back to me.
(3) There was not only 1 sales person with us when they inform the receipt was belongs to break apart bracelet on 31st August.

The sales person told me that they can’t help without the right receipt. Another thing to note is the bracelet break apart on another portion of the bracelet when I showing them the bracelet. I am not sure the bracelet is so fragile after they repair it or is it because of the poor design from L*Z* Diamond.

It was really a bad experience that happens to us at L*Z* Diamond. What do you think and what would you do if you facing similar situation?

坐月子食疗

我决得这资料很有意义。就集合起来跟大家分享。

http://www.kwongwah.com.my/news/2010/07/14/17.html
产妇于生产过程中消耗了很大的体力,损失了大量的营养;产后大量出汗,恶露持续排出,同样损失不少营养。因此,生产之后,产妇体内的各种营养物质的储备,已经出现了严重的负平衡,急需尽快补回。子宫和产道所出现的损伤于产后逐渐修复,这些损伤组织的修复需要大量的营养作为物质基础;母乳是由产妇体内的营养汇聚化生而成,婴儿每日所需的母乳需要动用产妇体内大量的营养,才能合成分泌。另外,生产之后,产妇体质非常虚弱,各种病菌很容易侵入,免疫系统在吞噬消灭这些细菌毒素的过程中,也要消耗大量的营养;再加上维持自身正常新陈代谢的需要,产妇每日还要消耗一定的营养。所有这些都决定了产妇在产后恢复过程中,需要比一般人更多、更好的营养,因此,产妇必须于生产之后进行必要的饮食调养,以保证其身体快速复原。

产后合理的饮食调养,具有及时补充产妇体内所需的各种营养,促进身体早日复原,防治月子病,以及促进母乳喂养的婴儿健康成长发育等多种作用。

清淡少盐为主
产妇月子期间饮食要清淡少盐,容易消化。多吃鱼类、肉类、蛋类、豆类,奶类之类的高蛋白食物,但也要注意粗细搭配,荤素搭配,肉类谷类搭配的原则,保持营养均衡,不要专吃高蛋白、高脂肪食物,应该适当食用多种蔬菜、水果等食物,注意饮食均衡。水果的食用应从少量开始,不要一次吃得过多,以用半个至一个水果为度。但应避免食用大寒大热的水果,如榴梿、西瓜、红毛丹、柿子、石榴、土故浪刹、黄梨、菠萝蜜、苦瓜等,更不可食用雪柜里刚刚拿出的水果。蔬菜每餐宜食用1-2两(约50-100公克左右)。

月子期间的食物不宜烹煮得过咸,食盐用量要比平时少一些,但也不应完全限制盐的摄入,除非产妇患有肾脏疾病,否则应该保持盐和水液的正常摄取。产妇应注意流食,半流食和汤水的食用,以保证宝宝获得足够的母乳供应。坐月子期间饮食也要有适当的节制,少量多餐,不可过饱过饥,不要食用辛辣煎炸油腻、腐烂变质不新鲜及不易消化的食物,不吸烟,不喝酒,尽量减少酒精的摄入,不喝冷水、冷饮,不吃冰块、冰淇淋,不吃寒凉生冷食物;除五谷杂粮之外,肉类食物一次不可食用过多,以免引起消化不良,但也不应因为担心肥胖身材走样而人为的节食。月子期的食物非常重要,食用恰当则有利于产妇的身体复原,反之,则不仅会对产妇的复原不利,甚至导致月子病的发生。为了帮助产妇坐好月子,笔者在此下面介绍一些适合坐月子食用的食疗药膳,供有需要者选用。

复原系统器官
月子期是每个女性产后必经的生理恢复过程,通过坐月子,女性整个生殖系统及其他生理器官得以恢复至产前未怀孕时的正常状态。女性怀孕之后,为了应付胎儿生长发育的需要,身体各个系统和器官都要发生一系列的相应改变,以满足胎儿的营养需求。如子宫肌细胞增殖变大,心脏负荷加重,搏出量增加等。及至胎儿娩出以后,这些器官又要发生一系列的生理改变,恢复到怀孕之前的正常状态。如子宫缩小,会阴、阴道伤口愈合,膈肌下降等。所有这些系统和器官的复原,都须依赖于月子期的调养与保健。调养得当,则很快恢复正常,反之,则恢复较慢,甚至永远无法恢复正常。而影响月子期恢复的一个重要因素就是饮食营养,也就是说与吃的关系极为密切。

为了帮助产妇坐好月子,笔者在此下面介绍一些适合坐月子食用的食疗药膳,供有需要者选用。

山药枸杞清汤面

配料:面线40-50g,豆腐30g,鲜山药30g,枸杞15g,陈皮3g,枸杞叶或菠菜30g,生葱1 根,生姜10g,鸡汤300g,酱油5ml,麻油10ml,食盐3g。

制法:

1. 豆腐洗净,切成小块;鲜山药去皮,洗净,切成丝;枸杞叶或菠菜拣去黄叶、老叶及杂质,洗净,切成小段或细丝;枸杞洗净,拣去杂质;陈皮洗净,切成细丝,放入小碗内,加入滚水少许,浸泡5-10分钟备用;生葱去皮,洗净,切成葱花,生姜去皮,洗净,切成细丝。

2. 将麻油倒入锅内,烧热后投入姜丝和少许葱花炒香,然后倒入豆腐、山药丝,翻炒片刻,盛出备用。

3. 将鸡汤倒入锅内,大火煮滚后下入面线,如常法煮之面熟,然后下入枸杞及枸杞叶(或菠菜碎),大火煮滚后倒入陈皮汁,加入食盐、酱油适当调味后即可盛出食用。

食法:于坐月子期间每日食用1-2次,产后第一周使用,效果更佳。

Eat more barley

Forward mail from friend.Good to know.

Barley high in fibre, barley is also a kidney cleanser. Better yet, regular intake of it helps prevent heart disease.

Barley is good for your intestinal health too. Try to eat the barley grains you find in your drink or sweet broth with fu chook (beancurd skin) and ginkgo nuts.

The propionic acid and beta glucan from barley's insoluble fibre also help lower cholesterol and prevent the form at ion of gallstones.


Diabetics should eat more barley as the fibre will prevent blood sugar levels from rising too high. It also provides relief from constipat ion or diarrhoea for those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Barley is rich in selenium which prevents cancer and relieves symptoms of asthma and arthritis. It is a good source of manganese, copper and phosphorous.

Malt sugar comes from sprouted barley which, when fermented , is an ingredient in beer and other alcoholic beverages.

Ladies Period Caution
It has been a traditional theory that ladies are not suppose to wash their hair during their period.But there are no solutions to the question why?The victim will only realise at their later stage of their life,facing the symptoms of breast and ovary cancer.Today ladies still wash their hair during their period with the thinking that they will be safe if they blow dry their hair.But this will not prevent them from getting the cancer.

緣份, 是找到包容你的人 :EQ

以下文章很有意义,想跟大家分享。

有一個男人,
為了參加第二天的小學同學會,
特地上街, 買一條新長褲。

他回家穿上後,卻發覺長度多了十公分。
於是請求媽媽替他改。

媽媽說,身體不舒服,想早一點休息,
今晚不想改。

於是, 改請求太太替他改。
太太說,還有許多家事要做,今晚沒有時間改。

於是, 改請求女兒替他改。
女兒說,今晚跟男朋友約好去跳舞,沒有時間改。

他想想,既然如此,明天穿舊的長褲去同學會也可以!
當天晚上,他媽媽心想:
「兒子平時對我很孝順,他開口要求總不好拒絕他。」
於是,起來替兒子改長褲,剪短了十公分。

他太太稍晚做完家事, 心想:
「老公平時很有耐心,今天他是不會縫針線才開口要求,
總不好拒絕他.」
於是替先生改長褲,剪短了十公分。

他女兒晚上回來:
「爸爸不阻止我去跳舞,實在是開明的老爸,今天實在
應該替他修改長褲。」
於是替爸爸改長褲,剪短了十公分。

第二天早上,三個女人分別告訴男主人此事。
他一試長褲,已經變成吊腳褲了。
他的反應「是...............」
哈哈一笑,說:「我一定要穿去給同學看,告訴他們,
我的媽媽、太太、和女兒對我多好。」

結果,老同學們一致稱讚他家庭經營成功。
他的媽媽、太太、和女兒也都很高興。

如果您是故事中的男人或女人,當下您會做何反應?

「哈哈一笑」抑或「破口大罵」?

人,面對外人時,總是可以表現得雍容大肚、心平氣和,
但面對自己最親近的家人,卻往往一點小事,
就足以皺起眉頭,甚至出言相傷。

「出門高E.Q,回家低E.Q」的動物,我想一點兒也不誇張,

多拿出一點耐心與幽默感給家人吧!
否則您自己也不會快樂,不是嗎?
請傳閱,或許今天正有人需要它!
也許,
我只是你生命中的過客...
並未留下任何痕跡..
但我希望的是...
當你回想起過去的時候..
在你回憶中的那個我,
是無可取代的..
緣份,
是找到包容你的人.

New RM50 note cannot be washed

Forward mail from friend.

Next time better double check your pants and shirt pocket and make sure no new RM50 bank note in them before throwing them into a washing machine.

All cleaned out after leaving wallet in the wash

By JOSHUA FOONG

PETALING JAYA: A mechanical engineer had RM200 literally “washed away” when the print on his new RM50 notes disappeared after he accidentally left his wallet in the laundry.
Yeoh Jit Shiong, 25, was shocked to find that the damaged notes were almost unrecognisable on Saturday evening.
What remained were the security threads and watermarks.


Faded notes: The four new RM50 notes that were decolourised after they were left in the washing machine by mistake.
“The printing was completely washed off, including the serial number.
“What’s surprising is that an old RM50 note that got washed along with the new notes wasn’t damaged at all,” said Yeoh.
“If an old RM50 note can withstand being in a washing machine, why not the new RM50 note, which is supposed to be an improved, upgraded version?” he asked.
Yeoh had withdrawn RM300 in RM50 notes from an ATM in USJ earlier in the day.
He said the notes from the ATM were new and genuine.
“I used RM50 to pay the cashier at a petrol station, who validated it with a bank-note detector.
“With the serial numbers washed off, how am I going to take the notes back to the bank for an exchange?”

Good info

Forward email from friend which i think good to share out.

MUSHROOM – EAR
Slice a mushroom in half and it resembles the shape of the human ear.
And guess what? Adding it to your cooking could actually improve your hearing.
That’s because mushrooms are one of the few foods in our diet that contain vitamin D.
This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.

BANANA (SMILE) – DEPRESSION
Cheer yourself up and put a smile on your face by eating a banana.
The popular fruit contains a protein called tryptophan.
Once it has been digested, tryptophan then gets converted in a chemical neurotransmitter called serotonin.
This is one of the most important mood-regulating chemicals in the brain and most anti-depressant drugs work by adjusting levels of serotonin production.
Higher levels are associated with better moods.


BROCCOLI – CANCER

Close-up, the tiny green tips on a broccoli head look like hundreds of cancer cells.
Now scientists know this disease-busting veg can play a crucial role in preventing the disease.
Last year, a team of researchers at the US National Cancer Institute found just a weekly serving of broccoli was enough to reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 45 per cent.
In Britain , prostate cancer kills one man every hour.

GINGER – STOMACH
Root ginger, commonly sold in supermarkets, often looks just like the stomach.
So it’s interesting that one of its biggest benefits is aiding digestion.
The Chinese have been using it for over 2,000 years to calm the stomach and cure nausea, while it is also a popular remedy for motion sickness.
But the benefits could go much further.
Tests on mice at the University of Minnesota found injecting the chemical that gives ginger its flavour slowed down the growth rate of bowel tumours.

CHEESE – BONES
A nice ‘holey’ cheese, like Emmenthal, is not just good for your bones, it even resembles their internal structure.
And like most cheeses, it is a rich source of calcium, a vital ingredient for strong bones and reducing the risk of osteoporosis later in life.
Together with another mineral called phosphate, it provides the main strength in bones but also helps to ‘power’ muscles.
Getting enough calcium in the diet during childhood is crucial for strong bones.
A study at Columbia University in New York showed teens who increased calcium intake from 800mg a day to 1200mg – equal to an extra two slices of cheddar - boosted their bone density by six per cent.


BEANSPROUTS – SPERM

The stir-fry favourite bears an uncanny resemblance to the images we see of ‘swimming’ sperm trying to fertilise an egg. And research from the US suggests they could play an important part in boosting male fertility.
A study at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio showed that to make healthy sperm in large quantities, the body needs a good supply of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects cells against damage by harmful molecules called free radicals.
Just half a cup of bean sprouts provides 16 per cent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C for a man.
It’s not just dad but baby too who could benefit..
Bean sprouts are packed with folate, a vitamin that prevents neural tube defects, where the baby is born with a damaged brain or spine.

GRAPES – LUNGS
OUR lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli.
These structures, which resemble bunches of grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream.
One reason that very premature babies struggle to survive is that these alveoli do not begin to form until week 23 or 24 of pregnancy.
A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema.
Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.

TOMATO – HEART
A TOMATO is red and usually has four chambers, just like our heart.
Tomatoes are also a great source of lycopene, a plant chemical that reduces the risk of heart disease and several cancers.
The Women’s Health Study — an American research programme which tracks the health of 40,000 women — found women with the highest blood levels of lycopene had 30 per cent less heart disease than women who had very little lycopene.
Lab experiments have also shown that lycopene helps counter the effect of unhealthy LDL cholesterol..
One Canadian study, published in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine, said there was “convincing evidence’ that lycopene prevented coronary heart disease.

WALNUT – BRAIN
THE gnarled folds of a walnut mimic the appearance of a human brain - and provide a clue to the benefits.
Walnuts are the only nuts which contain significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
They may also help head off dementia. An American study found that walnut extract broke down the protein-based plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers at Tufts University in Boston found walnuts reversed some signs of brain ageing in rats.

Water vs Coke

Forward mail from friend which would like to share out with you.

WATER

#1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated..
(Likely applies to half the world population)


#2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is mistaken for hunger.

#3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.

#4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study.

#5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

#6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

#7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

#8.. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast Cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop

COKE

#1. In many states the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from the highway after a car accident.

#2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone in two days.

#3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and let the 'real thing' sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china

#4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

#5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

#6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes.

#7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into
the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake.
Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

#8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke Into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.. The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your windshield

FOR YOUR INFORMATION:

#1
The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid.

It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric Acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.


#2.
To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the commercial trucks must use a hazardous material place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

#3.
The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean engines of the trucks for about 20 years!

Car air conditional

Forward mail from friend. Not sure true or not.
Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car
.

Open the windows after you enter your car and turn ON the AC after a couple of minutes.

Here's why
:

According to a research, the car dashboard, sofa, air freshener emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen - take time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car).

In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells.

Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer.

Can also cause miscarriage.


Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft.
A car parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene.

If parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level.


People who get into the car, keeping windows closed will inevitably inhale, in quick succession, excessive amounts of the toxin.

Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver.. What's worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.


So friends, please open the windows and door of your car - give time for interior to air out -dispel the20deadly stuff - before you enter.

Parents Should Teach Kids Finances, Not Just Schools

Sharing with you after reading this article.

Source: http://frugaldad.com/2010/04/06/teach-kids-finances/

“A very rich person should leave his kids enough to do anything, but not enough to do nothing.” – Warren Buffett

Here lately, I have been thinking more and more about the need for financial education curriculum in public schools. I am constantly amazed by the number of young people (and young adults) I interact with that have no basic understanding of how finances work. I mean a very elementary understanding – like how to balance a checkbook, how to compute interest, or what a mutual fund is.

After watching story after story from this latest recession, it is clear to me that our national personal finance IQ is too low. Perhaps if we raised more financially savvy generations we could avoid many of the same mistakes.

What Age to Start Teaching Basic Finance?
I like the idea of teaching kids about money when they are fairly young – like eight years old or so. By this time, many kids are receiving allowances, or receiving money for birthday presents. This makes money lessons a little less abstract – they can actually touch, and spend, their own money.

If we start at seven or eight years-old, that means plenty of very basic financial concepts could be well-covered over the next ten years. We could teach kids the value of saving money. We could teach kids the dangers of taking on too much debt. We could teach kids the power of compounding interest to foster and early interest in investing their money.

Will every child “get it” and become a future Warren Buffett? Of course not. Just like every kids doesn’t fully grasp chemistry and become a research scientist. But for the general student population, a general course each year in personal finance could go a long way towards creating a more financially-savvy young adult population.

Isn’t It Up To Parents to Teach Kids About Money?
Yes, it is. I believe it is up to parents to teach their kids most of life’s lessons. However, teachers can supplement that learning, and in cases where parents are unable or unwilling to participate, teachers may provide the only education source for children. It is a sad reality that the latter scenario plays out far more often than the former. Lack of parental involvement makes teachers jobs much more difficult. This is especially true in “real world” subjects such as personal finance.

How Can Parents Teach Kids About Money?
Besides modeling responsible spending habits for your children, there are a few things we can do to help kids learn financial concepts outside of a classroom setting.

Take your kids grocery shopping. Rather than having kids passively follow along while you do all the shopping, encourage them to help with your math tasks. Teach them how to calculate the unit price and compare two items for the best value. Weigh your produce and let them estimate the total cost by multiplying the weight by the cost per ounce/pound. Let them keep a running total of your bill on the back of your grocery list (for bonus points, older kids can even calculate the sales tax for a total bill).

Take your kids to the bank. My grandfather was in his 70s before he first used an ATM, and I don’t think he has ever used a drive-thru window at the bank. He believes in “eye balling” people when doing banking business. So growing up, I knew my way around the bank after tagging along with him. I watched him cash a check for cash (he called this “walking around money”). We rolled coins and deposited them into my grandparent’s account. Of course I loved it, because I always got a lollipop from the teller. Little did I know I was actually learning about how banking works, something I now hope to pass along to my own kids.

Give kids a four-quarter budget lesson. It’s a simple exercise, but helps kids understand that money is finite. If only Congress understood this! I digress.

The link above explains the exercise in detail, but basically you give your child four quarters representing major categories of your budget (taxes, mortgage, transportation, everything else). Ask for a quarter back to pay taxes on your income, another to pay for your home, and another for your car, insurance, gas and maintenance. Then explain with that last quarter you have to put some in savings, some towards food, lights, water and most of the rest towards bills. With that last little fraction of a quarter of your budget you can spend on toys and fun stuff.

Let kids pay the power bill. No, not out of their allowance! Let your child sit down a couple months and write out the check for the power bill. Show them the bill and explain the various lines. This is how much electricity we used every day. This is how much it costs us to run the television, lights, air conditioner, etc. This should also help them understand why you constantly go through the house behind them turning off lights and the television (I’m not the only one doing this, right?).

Buy kids a share of stock, and let them pick the company. If they like Disney movies, buy a share of Disney. If they like chewing gum, give Wrigley’s a look. And who doesn’t like McDonalds (which is actually a pretty good dividend play, too!). Show them how to look up the stock quote in the newspaper, or online. Consider adding a second share in a completely different industry – a great introduction to diversification.

What are you doing to teach your kids about money? I always enjoy learning new teaching methods, games, etc, so please share.
