Taking Stress Out of Waiting to Get Pregnant

A lot of factors contribute to the success of a woman getting pregnant but it is quite difficult to determine exactly the duration of having a successful pregnancy.

Some factors that should be considered for couples who want to have a baby are intercourse or sexual contact that are timed following schedule of ovulation and cycle of women, and quality and quantity of sperm. In addition, couples should consider a healthy lifestyle free from smoking, alcohols, and drugs, a balanced and nutritious diet, and maintaining a normal weight for their age. These factors are more important for women who will bear the baby in their womb for nine months. Taking folate supplements and multivitamins, and avoiding caffeine also contribute significantly to a healthy childrearing. read more

Parenting Process

Parenting is the most difficult job in the world.

I have been trying to given some help advice over the past months in hopes of prepare us for the most difficult job and rewarding job you will ever have to have in your life. Parenting is wonderful.However, the reality is that at time it can get difficult. The secret is to learn as you go. Before we became parents we never really thought of difficulties that might occur.

That might have been for the best. The old saying, “when life gives you lemon you make lemonade” absolutely applies to parenting. We just have to make the best of situations as they unfold. Last night my wife,daughter, and I went out for dinner and it was quite an adventure. My daughter did not want to stay still and would not eat(this annoying but normal);she wanted to see the fishes. So we showed her the fishes and since she did not want to eat food, we allowed her to eat all the ice she wanted.They will eat when they get hungry(so don’ t have a cow );however, every child might be different ,but I have noticed scolding and threatening them does more bad than good. read more
