Hormones, Appetite, and Weight Loss
Hormones have been studied as suspects in weight loss difficulty as well as appetite in the past decade. The most recent studies are examining four hormones in particular. 1) Leptin This hormone acts as an appetite suppressor. It is generally found in lower levels in the bodies of thin people than in overweight. It protects the body against weight loss during times of food deprivation. As a body stores more fat, leptin decreases, appetite increases, and body energy use decreases. Obese...

Baby crying: settling your newborn
Babies cry. It’s a fact of life for your newborn baby and for you. Newborns, babies from birth through the end of the third month, cry anywhere from 1 to 4 hours a day. Fortunately, not all at once! Short periods of crying (5 to 15 minutes on average) pop up here and there over each 24-hour period we call a “day.” There are plenty of reasons for your little one to work her lungs. She’s too cold, too warm, hungry or gassy, sleepy or over stimulated. Perhaps she just wants a cuddle or maybe it’s...

Child Behavior Disorders
All children misbehave and go through times when they have behavioral issues, but there are times when it is more than that. It is customary for certain kinds of problem behavior to increase. But because all children go through stages of misbehavior, it can be hard for parents to know whether their child is just going through a stage or has a behavior disorder. The good news is that parents can often change their children's behavior by making changes themselves. The most common disruptive...

Homeschoolers and Public Sports
Many parents who decide top homeschool their children do so knowing that many factors go into their decision one of which is that their children would not be able to participate in the sports offered in public schools. Tim Tebow the popular quarterback who was homeschooled and allowed to play on his high school football team where he excelled and went on to great things at the university of Florida has inspired homeschoolers to try to play sports in their area. There is even a bill in Richmond...

Waivers and No Child Left Behind
No child left behind an education reform bill signed into law in 2002 could finally be coming to an end. The president has recently released ten states from some of the law's toughest requirements. Those states had to agree to a federally approved plan and will now be free to evaluate students on more than just test scores. The president’s decision to let states claim these waivers was a clear acknowledgement that the law's main goal of getting all students up to an acceptable level in reading...

Public Schools Leaving Children Behind
The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 that was signed into law by President George W. Bush and supported overwhelmingly by both parties, could possibly be the most misguided and complete failure in education reform. The NCLB is a federal law that mandates a number of programs aimed at improving U.S. education in elementary, middle and high schools by increasing accountability standards, if the standards are not met federal funding for the failing schools will be reduced. No child left...

Dealing with Homeschool Skepticism
If you have been homeschooling for a while or if you have just decided to begin, skepticism is something you either have or will come across. Family members, community members, and friends will often question your decisions. There are many disbelievers out there. These people have fallen for the stereotypes that often come into existence where homeschooling is concerned. Other skeptics simply need to be enlightened, as they are just showing general interest or concern. But, regardless of...

The Unschooling Debate
Those who have chosen the path of homeschooling have many choices and decisions ahead of them. One of the methods for consideration is that of unschooling. Before going into the pros and cons of this idea, what exactly is unschooling? Some brief definitions are: • Unschooling is a belief system rather than a method. • The radical idea of learning without “doing” school. • The only true “free” education. Unschooling parents believe that all people have a desire to learn and children...

Psychological Issues and Weight Challenges
More often than not, people in our society who are experiencing challenging weight issues truly need to explore the underlying psychological state or emotional turmoil they may find themselves in. It is a well known fact that depression is closely associated with eating disorders. These disorders include obesity as well as binge eating and anorexia. Different people react to depression in different ways. The majority turn to food in order to comfort themselves, thus relieving, albeit...

Teaching Multi-levels in the Same Setting
We’ve all seen shows like “Little House on the Prairie” with the one room schoolhouse in which all ages and grades are taught. If you are a home schooling parent with multiple children, your daily routine might resemble that old time schoolhouse. It may seem overwhelming to teach multi-age, multi-grade level, and multi-ability level kids at the same time, but it absolutely does not have to be. There are a couple of options for you to try. First, you can purchase a curriculum for each grade...

Extracurricular Activities for Home Schooled Students
One major concern of parents considering a home schooling option for their children is extracurricular activity participation. The socialization and team building advantages of these activities are an essential part of a young person’s venture into society. So, can home schooled kids have as many opportunities for extracurricular activities? Absolutely. Many states in the U.S. have adopted equal access laws that allow home schooled children to try out for and participate in local public...

Dangerous and Downright Crazy Diet Plans
Diet fads are a part of our lives. Let’s face it; there are a lot of nutty people coming up with a lot of nutty ideas. Keep in mind, if it seems too good to be true, it most likely isn’t true. Some of the diet fads can be seriously dangerous to your health. Always discuss any diet plan you are considering with your doctor before proceeding, no matter how crazy the concept is. You may be saving your life…or at least prolonging it. The Tapeworm Diet Okay, first of all, the name says it all...

Healthy Lifestyle the Vegan Way
Vegetarianism and veganism are quickly becoming more popular choices of diet for many people in North America. Some groups of people choose to change to these types of diets for moral or ethical reasons. These believe that the production and consumption of meats are not only cruel to the animals, but are doing great damage to our environment. Many more groups of people are choosing this lifestyle in order to improve their overall health. A vegetarian or vegan diet has been proven to improve...

The most successful businesses and inventions were conceived by a dream and nothing more. Dreams can become realities if the right avenues are chosen. Turn your dream into potential success by creating a sound business plan.

The Weight Gain and Poverty Connection
Being overweight used to be a symbol of prosperity. It signified that one didn’t have to do manual work and lifted one up to a higher socioeconomic status. This millennium, however, the opposite is true. These days, the lower the income level, the higher the obesity rate. People don’t choose to become poor. Unfortunately, one of the results of poverty is obesity. There are many reasons for this disparity in income level and weight. The lowest income levels in our country lead to a higher...

Homeschooling –The First Steps
The decision to home school your children has been made. Where to begin? What to avoid? What to do? Here are some good starting points. • Join homeschooling clubs, support groups or co-ops. These can be invaluable sources of information for you. There are many parents out there with the same ideas about education and values that you have. All of the groups may not be aligned with your values. Keep looking until you find some that you share something in common with. • Attend a...

Alimony- Is it Reasonable?
Alimony is supposed to preserve the recipient’s standard of living. But, at what point is it reasonable, and at what point is it enabling and supporting the recipient in a lack of effort to support him or herself? Also called maintenance payments or spousal support, there needs to be a limit. Quite a few states are recognizing that fact. It is understandable that after a divorce, both parties need to have a period of adjustment, and that period may involve one person supplementing the...

Working from Home, Who Could Ask for More?

Only you can decide if this is the right answer for you. Income Tax Deductions When you work from home and have your own business, everything from your internet service to you...

The Classical Education Model
Touted to be the return to a proven method of past centuries, the Classical Educational Model is gaining in popularity among homeschooling parents. The model is characterized by exposure to history, art, culture, languages, philosophy, and literature of Western Civilization. With a Christian emphasis (it also concentrates on the development of a biblical view of the world and Theology is considered to be the queen of sciences), the core of this model is the Trivium, which tailors curriculum...

Energy Deregulation Goals and Reality
Throughout our history, many industries have been deregulated. The point of deregulation is to bring consumers lower prices and provide more competition and more choices. Whether deregulation of electricity has been successful thus far is still very much in question. One must look at the reasons/goals of deregulation and then examine the actual effects before drawing a conclusion about the success or failure. The original goals of deregulation included, but were certainly not limited...

Divorce and Children: It Doesn’t Have to Be Devastation
Divorce can have a profound effect on children. Since children so often internalize feelings, parents need to be tuned in to their children and watch for signs of negative reactions. With proper attention and appropriate reaction on the parts of both parents, these negative reactions can be kept at a minimum and the kids can flourish in what can seem to be a no-win situation. There are multiple stressors involved in divorce, especially where the children are involved. A couple that is...

The Charlotte Mason Method
Charlotte Mason’s Educational Method is centered around the idea of a three-pronged education. Education is atmosphere (environment). Education is discipline (habits of character). Education is life (academics). It is essentially learning through living and ideas, not simply through facts. Mason was a British educator living during the late nineteenth/early twentieth centuries. She had unique ideas about educating our youth for the time during which she lived and taught. Mason’s method...

Fallout and Recovery from Divorce
When you said, “I do,” you didn’t mean “I do for x amount of years, or x amount of months,” you meant “forever.” None of us thinks about that 50% divorce rate in the country while we are saying our vows. However, half of us find ourselves in the middle of a break up. Divorce is a painful, emotional thing to endure. It matters not whether you are the initiating spouse or the one taken aback by the request to end the marriage. It’s hard, that is the bottom line. If you are facing divorce,...

Learning is Everywhere…Even in Your Own Backyard
Homeschooling has many advantages. That goes without saying. There is one advantage, though, that stands far above the rest…Field Trips. Whether you live in a large city or a rural community, you can teach concepts in a differentiated manner providing hands-on experiences for your child that he or she wouldn’t necessarily participate in a traditional school setting. Think about the everyday things you do. You go to the grocery store, you drive to the mall, you mow the grass, and...

Do Homeschooled Students get a Good Education?
Homeschooling has gone from relatively nothing in the 1970s to around two million homeschoolers in 2009. With this increase in children being taught at home there has been an increase in scrutiny on whether these children are receiving an education that is comparable with those that attend public/private schools. The biggest debates involve social interactions and whether the parents are qualified to teach their children at a reasonable academic level. Dr. Brian D. Ray of the National Home...

Child Support in New York
Any couple that goes through a divorce has to deal with many issues, but those that have children usually go through even more acrimony when dealing with custody and support for their children. Child support is financial support provided by the noncustodial parent. Child support includes, cash payments (based on the parent's income and the needs of the child), health insurance for the child, payments for child care, and payments for reasonable health care costs that are not covered by health...

Homeschooling is it For Everyone?
In recent years the increase in the amount of parents who have decided to home school their children has risen dramatically. There are many reasons for this lack of confidence in the public education system, religious reasons, and social environment to name a few. But when it comes to homeschooling it causes great debate on whether it is the right choice for everyone, are the parents qualified to teach to their children, can the children handle the different social environment that comes with...

Surviving a cheating spouse
Infidelity is becoming more and more common in relationships in our ever growing and fast paced society. There are many things to blame infidelity on whether it be the Internet, more women in the work place, the slippage of societies moral ground, the list could go on forever. The last thing anybody wants to blame it on is themselves, as a society we have become accustomed to blaming everything on a disorder or what happened to us in the past, and while in some cases this may be true for the...

Combo-Pilling for Weight Loss
With everything that people deal with to lose weight, diets that do not work, diet pills that do not do what they are supposed to, overpriced exercise equipment, just to name a few.

Are Over the Counter Diet Pills Effective
Anybody who has tried to lose weight has tried a diet pill or weight loss program that did not work out quite the way they thought it would this does not necessarily mean that all over the counter diet pills are not effective. When it comes to diet pills many people automatically assume that if they are only available through a prescription that it makes them a more effective pill than an over the counter weight loss medication. If this was the case there would be no question about what are the...

Divorce and its Impact on Society
Divorce is an issue that regrettably affects all Americans; it has become a staple in our society. We are more surprised when a couple stays together for more than twenty years than we are disappointed when a couple gets divorced after one year. Our society has become so accepting of divorce that more and more couples spend the time before their wedding planning for the divorce, with pre-nuptial agreements and the contract talks that go with it. The affects of divorce on society can be felt...

Losing Weight the Smart Way

No Fault Divorce is it Good for New York
The state of New York has become the last state in the union to sign no fault divorce into law; this now allows couples to get divorced without having to prove any wrongdoing or abuse. Before the passing of this law couples would need to be separated for a year and one side had to be at fault, causing many people to make up stories of wrongdoing or abuse.

Do Diet Pills Really Work or is it a Scam
If you have seen any advertisements or promotions for diet pills you know that they are a miracle solution for anybody who wants to lose weight or at least that is what they want you to think.

Does Divorce Have to Be Angry?
When a couple decides to divorce emotions can run very high, with both sides doing anything and everything to try to hurt the other. One of the most painful things we learn through all of this is that two people who swore til death do us part can now be mortal enemies.
