4 ways to be prepared for big changes to your family life

In life, it is impossible to know what waits around the corner. That is why it is important to plan for every eventuality. This is especially true if you are raising a young family. Instead of being caught out, you should have a variety of backup plans in place. When you are formulating your plans, you will need to think about the wellbeing of your children. Big disruptions to their childhood could have a lasting impact, so it is vital that you take an effective approach. If you are concerned about the future, you will need to read on. Below are four ways to be prepared for big changes to your family life.
Welcoming a new family member
One of the most common changes to family life is the introduction of a new family member. If you decide to expand your household, it is important that everyone is prepared. This is especially true when you are dealing with your first child. If you have a number of children, they will have a clearer idea of what is to come. They will also have more experience of sharing your attention. However, if you only have one child, they need to understand that having a sibling doesn’t mean that you love them any less. Try to get them excited about the pregnancy and include them in the process.
The passing of an elderly relative
Although it is difficult to think about, it is best to prepare for the passing of an elderly relative. It may feel strange, but you need to have a conversation with your children about life and death. There are plenty of age-appropriate books and movies that can help you to do this.
Alternatively, you can teach your child about grief by buying them a pet, such as a goldfish or a hamster. Of course, the process of understanding grief isn’t the main life lesson when buying your child a pet, and you may not even have thought about it; however, this is an important life lesson for all children to learn as they grow older.
Divorce can be an extremely difficult ordeal, especially when you are raising a young family. To make everything go as smoothly as possible, you will need help from the professionals. Reach out to Makofka Divorce Attorneys for expert advice. They will guide you through the process and help to secure the best future for your family.
Moving home

Children can become incredibly attached to their family home. That is why you need to tread carefully if you are thinking about moving. Make sure that you give your little ones plenty of time to get used to the idea. If you are moving to an entirely different location, you should plan a short visit. Try to show your family the best attractions the area has to offer. Once you have relocated, it is important to check in with everyone. If there are any problems, try to resolve them as soon as possible. Don’t worry, it won’t be long before everyone starts to feel at home in your new property.

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,
