How to be Prepared for Your Child’s Injuries

One of the scariest things for many parents is when their child gets hurt. Injuries can range from a small scrape to something seriously life-threatening. You can’t keep them guarded and you can’t protect them all the time, either. Knowing what to do when your child gets injured can help both their confidence and their wellbeing. Fussing over the smallest scrape isn’t going to make them ready for the world once they grow up, but not being prepared for serious injuries can make matters worse. Here is how to prepare for your child’s future injuries:  

  1. For When It’s a Small Scrape
Small scrapes, falls, and other common injuries can leave a little kid crying. Fussing over them, however, will only cause them to believe the pain is worse. When a child falls when they’re running down the street, check briefly if they’re bleeding, how much, and if they look fine to continue on their way. Children will look to you to tell them how badly they’re hurt – and if you stay calm, they will too. Teaching them to be brave when they feel pain will carry them far in life when you aren’t around.

  1. For When They’re a Dare Devil
Some children just seem to look for injuries. When you have a daredevil on your hands or a child that loves extreme sports, it’s not a good idea to ban it outright. Children, especially when they get older and go into the notorious rebellious phase, will likely go out and commit these risky sports without you being there. Banning them from being reckless is only guaranteeing that they won’t be reckless in front of you – meaning you won’t be there when they inevitably hurt themselves. Instead, try to direct their energy into a safer place and, if that fails, be supportive so that health officials and yourself will be there for every wipeout.

  1. For When a Genuine Accident Occurs
Sometimes things happen by chance that seriously leave your child hurt. Quick action and dedicated recovery are how you and your child will move past the injury and the trauma. When you and your child are injured in an automobile accident, for instance, it’s best that you get a Personal Injury Doctor Now.

  1. For When Negligence is Involved
In possibly the worst circumstances, your child could be injured because of someone else’s negligence. This means that another adult’s carelessness caused your child to be injured or worse. When this happens, quick action and recovery are of course needed. However, as negligence was involved, you could also be owed compensation. In some cases, you could even prove criminal negligence.

Getting hurt is a fact of life. It’s impossible to go through life from start to finish without a few broken bones and some scars, no matter how careful you are. Knowing how to do emergency first aid, and how to react to each kind of injury is how you’ll protect and prepare your child as they grow up and move out.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
