    Teen pregnancy statistics can be very misleading. Making sense of them is somewhat like assigning meaning to tea leaves: they can say almost whatever you want them to say.

    For instance, common wisdom has it that the United States and the United Kingdom alone lead the developed world in teen birth rates and that Denmark is among the nations with the lowest rates. This leads people to conclude that whatever Denmark is doing to prevent teen pregnancy must be working, and whatever America and Britain are doing is not. But even that simple, widely accepted statistic begs further examination.

    First one must recognize that “birth rates” are not quite the same thing as “pregnancy rates.” A nation may have high teenage pregnancy rates, but if offset by high abortion rates, the resulting birth rate may give a false impression. Further clouding the issue, some countries prefer not to report abortion rates, and others cantbecause, for various reasons, they dont know what they are. Incidentally, Japan actually has the lowest teen pregnancy rates, as well as low abortion ratesless than half that of Denmark for both statistics. And Japans statistics are measured for all women under 20, not just ages 15 to 19 as most other nations report them.

    Still considering the same oft-reported factoid, there are other questions that have a bearing on its usefulness. Particularly, what is teen pregnancy and why should it bother us? In the minds of most, discussions about this subject refer to teenage girls who are unmarried and pregnant. The concern arises across political and religious lines in part because single young mothers and their children are shown to be exposed to much higher risks of all sorts, whether mental, emotional, physical or economic. It isn’t good for anyone when young, unmarried girls become young, unmarried mothers.

    Butoddly enoughnational statistics arent reported by marital status. Married teens are counted with single teens when birth rates are reported by age. This means that statistics may include a large percentage of 18- and 19-year-olds who are married and who, in some cultures, may be surrounded by extended family supportnot subject to the same risks as single teens whose lives will be seriously impacted by the struggle to raise a child alone in harsh economic circumstances. As studies have consistently demonstrated, children with fathers as well as mothers have higher levels of well-being by almost all measures. Certainly, even married teen parents may have a lot to learn, but in cultures where extended family is routinely present, this deficiency may be overcome more easily.

    Then there is the term “developed world.” In some reports, the word “Western” is substituted for developed, but both carry a certain amount of ambiguity. Does one consider New Zealand to be developed even if not precisely Western? If so, one also has to point out that it often beats out Britain for the second spot. As of 2006 figures (the latest compiled) the two nations are, in fact, neck and neck.

    Being the parent of a child in youth sports can be an awesome experience. There is nothing like seeing your child learn new skills, make new friends, and then take the field or court and dazzle you with their performance. However, everyone who attends these kinds of games is aware of that one parent who simply does not seem to have a clue. This type of parent is the type who gets too into the game and ends up making a spectacle of themselves and embarrassing their children. While you may not believe you could ever be a parent like this, the potential is there for anyone to become too emotionally involved. Here are a few tips to help you avoid being that parent.

    One of the first things you need to keep in mind when you are the parent of a child in youth sports is that it is ok if your child is not a super athlete. The point of having your child participate in sports should not be to see them hit it big as a professional athlete in their sport of choice. That is not to say that is not a good goal to have if they have the skills and abilities to do so, but having unrealistic expectations for your children sets them up for failure that could be devastating to their psychological health later on down the road.

    In light of understanding this, you should avoid giving your child harsh criticism for not performing well during games and practices. You should always help your child understand where they are weak as a player, but never without massive amounts of encouragement to push them to do better. When you are pushing your child, make sure that you are not pushing too hard or that you are making winning or losing the focal point of their experience in youth sports.

    Finally, you want to make sure to keep your cool in the middle of youth sports games. Try not to take it personally if your child gets fouled or if the other team is trouncing them on the scoreboard. While it is a parents instinct to protect their children, many who get passionate at these moments often vent and end up demonstrating poor sportsmanship. This is not only embarrassing, but it also sets a horrible example for your children to look up to. After all, molding a good and healthy attitude in sports is very important.

    Along with most pregnancies today come stretch marks as well; in fact, just about all women end up getting some stretch marks while they are pregnant. This can be frustrating, especially with all the other negative factors that can come along with pregnancy, such as morning sickness. Stretch marks are very common and they can occur in a variety of different places on your body. While they are the most common on the stomach, they can also occur on the thighs, the breasts, and even on the upper arms. However, there are many things that you can do to avoid getting these stretch marks. If you want to lower your chances of dealing with stretch marks, then here are a few ways that you can prevent them.

    Way 1 Eat Foods High in Vitamins One way that you can help to prevent stretch marks while you are pregnant is to make sure that you eat foods that are high in vitamins. This includes healthy oils, fruits, and vegetables. Make sure that you get the vitamins and minerals that your body needs, especially those that help with skin healthy, such as zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.

    Way 2 Drink Water Drinking plenty of water is another way that you can help to prevent getting stretch marks while you are pregnant. Water can help to keep your body hydrated, as well as your skin. When you keep your skin well hydrated you’ll be less likely to end up with those stretch marks by the end of your pregnancy.

    Way 3 Moisturize Your Skin Using a moisturizer on your skin is very important as well. This is important not only during pregnancy, but after as well. You need to make sure that you moisturize a least once a day. You’ll find many different products out there on the market today that can help. Many are especially designed for women who are pregnant as well. However, just make sure that you moisturize and consider going with a moisturizer that has Vitamin E in it.

    Way 4 Avoid Gaining Weight Too Fast Gaining the pregnancy weight fast can really make the stretch marks appear fast. However, if you gain the weight slowly, it can be better for your skin. Avoid gaining the weight too fast and also try not to gain any more weight than you are supposed to during pregnancy. This will help take the pressure off the skin so you can avoid dealing with the stretch marks.

    Way 5 Get Some Exercise Exercise can help, and if your doctor will allow it, you may want to start some type of light exercise on a regular basis. This will help you to keep your weight at a good level while you are pregnant. Keeping your body toned and in shape can definitely help you to avoid getting stretch marks.

    I was at the birth of my niece and I was almost as excited as her mum. She asked me to attend as my brother in law was abroad and would not be able to get back in time. The birth itself was a mind blowing experience and just moments after she was born, I got to hold her.

    Of course, every new baby needs clothes and as I love shopping, I volunteered for this job. It doesn’t matter whether I am shopping for clothes, household goods or other people. I love shopping. I mean, could any women resist the chance to buy clothes for a new born baby in their family?

    While shopping, it is important to remember to not just buy clothes based on appearance. The clothes must also be comfortable, otherwise baby will be restless. Many designers pay great attention to how they design the babies clothes and which material they use. This all goes towards making baby happy. The clothes that are likely to make a baby feel uncomfortable are the ones that are mass machine produced with no thought about the design. I also searched the suppliers online to find ones that paid attention to their designers.

    Soya bean fibres are just one of the ways that designers are experimenting to find the best way to keep baby happy. In case you haven’t come across this, it is a by-product of tofu and soya milk production. This material is durable but it is also extremely soft on the skin. I discovered this type of fibre, when buying baby rompers.

    Have you also heard of clothes made from bamboo? It may sound strange, but don’t think about Bamboo in its pure form. The type of bamboo used to make clothes is a by-product which has been treated to bring out the softness. While searching the web, I also come across a designer that produced clothing that was comfortable, fun and stylish.

    I think denim always looks cute on babies and it is incredibly durable and comfortable. I think we all know that though as so many of us are still living in jeans when we are adults. Denim jeans are actually great when babies start crawling. Practical for baby and stops mum from tearing her hair out.

    I’m not such a purist about modern eco-friendly innovations that I shun all traditional fabrics. So for my new niece, I bought some wonderful romper suits. I know tiny babies have no idea what they look like, but the positive attention they get when they look so irresistibly cute can only be good for them. If baby is wearing clothes that are comfortable and look great, mum will also feel pleased as well. And it’s always nice to make heads turn in appreciation, whether you are six months old or sixty years!

    It is always important for parents to do an interview with a tutor before they hire them on to work with their child. They need to ask plenty of questions concerning their former work with children and how long they have been tutoring in the area. Hiring a tutor with plenty of years of experience in education is a smart move and a much wiser decision than hiring one who is just starting out. This will help you ensure that your child receives an adequate amount of high quality help.

    During the interview you should ask the tutor what subjects they are more skilled in and how long they have been tutoring children. You should also discuss scheduling and find out what arrangements will work best for both the tutor and your child. Always ask for a few references phone numbers if you do not have them already so that you may be able to contact several of their former clients and find out from them what type of job they did. You always want to work with a reliable and trustworthy person when it comes to finding the right type of tutor for your child, so take every precaution necessary to ensure that they get the best help that you can provide them with.

    When you are blessed with a pregnant Labrador, you have to take care of them. Usually, most pregnant Labradors are at their state because of planned events. They need the best of care to ensure they will bring healthy babies.

    For instance, make sure that the pregnant Labrador is at the right age to be pregnant and give birth. This is important because some dogs are bred accidentally during their first heat. The Labrador should be at least one year old. This is the right age for breeding dogs.

    Make sure that you make regular veterinarian visits, especially if your pregnant Labrador was not examined before becoming pregnant. This will guarantee that your dog remains healthy and the puppies are examined to make sure they are doing ok.

    Regular exercise helps in keeping the muscles toned while promoting general health of your pregnant Labrador. It can be potentially dangerous for both the mother and her puppies if your pregnant Labrador becomes overweight or obese.

    Vaccination, Parasite Control and Nutrition for a Pregnant Labrador

    When your Labrador becomes pregnant, you have to take care of them more. Be wary about various issues such as nutrition, exercise, vaccination, parasite control and other diseases.

    Make sure you have given the necessary vaccinations for your dog. Pregnant Labradors need extra immunity because it would directly affect her puppies through her milk. However, it is not recommended to vaccinate pregnant Labradors. So make sure to take her to the vet for immunizations before breeding.

    Another thing to consider is intestinal parasites and heartworms. This is important to watch for because pregnant Labradors could pass these parasites on to their puppies. Therefore, along with immunizing, make sure that your dog receives all the examinations necessary before breeding to guarantee that the mother is free of these harmful parasites.

    Your pregnant Labrador will not have her normal appetite during the first six weeks. However, when she reaches her sixth week, she is likely to have a better appetite than usual. During this time, proper nutrition is important because she is now feeding both herself and her puppies. It’s important to remember that since the puppies are pushing against her organs, she will not be able to eat as much as before in one serving. To be sure she is eating enough you could give her several little meals a day.

    You should double the amount of time and energy taking care of a pregnant Labrador in order for her to pass a healthy life to her puppies. Proper care includes that your dog is receiving proper nutrition, parasite maintenance, sufficient exercise and diet.

    Having a baby can be one of the most exciting, and not to mention confusing, things that you will ever experience in your life. There are hundreds of things to observe and keep track of in your babies development such as their first words, sitting up on their own, attempts at independent walking, etc. These are what pediatricians call milestones. Milestones are very important and reaching them helps evaluate how far ahead your baby is in its development. Also, they allow doctors to measure your babys progress and suggest new activities to stimulate their development. Crawling is one of the very important milestones in your babys life for a multitude of reasons.

    WHAT CRAWLING IS
    For your baby to start crawling means a few things. First of all, it means your baby has the vital brain area developed that is responsible for coordinated movement and balance. It also means your baby has strong enough arms to support his entire upper body a very important sign. When your baby first attempts to crawl, he will start by putting weight on his hands and knees, and then slowly start to add motion. At the same time, your baby will be strengthening his muscles for future use. Babies like to crawl because it is their first sense of freedom and mobility. No longer are they constrained by their crib walls or playpen gate. They are now free to explore their surroundings without being constricted.

    WHEN IT DEVELOPS
    For most babies, crawling develops shortly after they learn to sit up on their own without parental assistance. This is usually six to seven months after birth, but can be as early as four months and as late as ten months for some babies. In recent years, babies have been learning to crawl later and later, and many babies have opted to skip the crawling stage altogether.

    Dont be alarmed if your baby opts to use a different form of locomotion, such as scooting across the floor or rolling around. A few rare babies even go straight from sitting up to walking. You know your baby will be ready for crawling when he can sit up well without support. After this, you will notice that you baby tries to push off with his knees and will attempt to crawl. It may take a few weeks, but eventually your baby will be able to master going from the sitting position to the crawling position.

    This truly is a fun time for parents to watch and observe. Dont stress out too much about initial unsuccessful attempts; just remember to clear the floor from all small and big things your baby might be able to reach in his newfound freedom. Take a lot of pictures and enjoy!

    It is a proven fact that music stimulates the brain, and that a baby or child who is exposed to classical music responds and interacts well. It is never too early to expose your child to classical music education. In fact, many expecting mothers give their unborn babies a headstart in life by listening to classical music before their baby is born. One way of giving your child the extra edge in life is to let your child take violin lessons to learn to play the violin.

    So why are violin lessons beneficial to your children?

    Firstly, your child will improve on coordination skills:

    Learning to play the violin involves coordinating ones left hand with ones right hand. The left hand will need to learn to finger the violin strings correctly so the right tone and pitch is achieved to play a song. The right hand will need to hold the violin bow correctly and bow the right string to produce the right tone. Playing the violin involves the coordination of both left and right hand. As such when you send your child to violin lessons, you are letting your child learn how to fully utilize both his left and right brain.

    Secondly, playing the violin develops your childs brain

    In playing the violin, your child will need to learn to recognise the right tone and pitch when bowing and fingering the violin so as to play a song to the right pitch. This promote the neuron and brain cell connection and develops the intelligence level of your child. Think of it as brain gymnastics. Your child exercises his brains and stretches it to its full potential. As such your child will benefit in other areas, with improved reasoning skills, abstract reasoning and mathematics.

    Thirdly, learning to play the violin give enhances your childs confidence

    It is not easy to learn to play the violin for the above reasons. So when your child manages to learn to play the violin, he will have a sense of accomplishment and feel confident. This confidence will translate to other areas of his life.

    You may also want to take this a step further when your child has reach a certain level of playing the violin, to expose your child to solo or group violin performance. It is usually unnerving for a young child to perform in front of a big audience. However if your child is exposed to this couple of times, it will enhance his confidence even more.

    Fourthly, taking violin lessons teaches your child the concept of perseverance

    In the beginning, your child will feel that the violin lessons are difficult and he cannot manage. But if you encourage him and he finally learns to master and play the violin, he will understand the concept of perseverance. This will aid him in whatever he chooses to do in life later.

    Pseudocyesis also referred to as pseudopregnancy or false pregnancy is a condition in which a non-pregnant woman believes that she is pregnant, even though there is no physical evidence of pregnancy, she often experience real pregnancy symptoms. Women who are most at risk to experience false symptoms are:

    -*- Women who have suffered a miscarriage or who have lost a child

    -*- Women in their late thirties or early forties, who have been trying to conceive for many years and who may have fertility problems.

    The Causes!

    Experts believe that emotional conflict is the principal cause. It is thought that an intense desire to become pregnant, or an intense fear of becoming pregnant, can create internal conflicts and changes in the endocrine system, which may explain some of the symptoms of pseudocyesis, and which are similar to the symptoms of true pregnancy and are often hard to distinguish from it but you should pay attention to them.

    Her is Four of these principal false pregnancy symptoms you should know:

    Missed Period

    This is the most common symptom, if your period doesn’t arrive on time there is a chance that you are pregnant, but if you are not regular and don’t keep track of your cycle this could be a false symptoms.

    Tender Breasts

    This is an early signs of pregnancy, sensitive, sore breasts, but his can also be a sign of your period.

    Morning Sickness

    This is one of the early pregnancy symptoms; I think it’s the hormonal change that contributes to the feeling of sleepiness.

    Widening of the Abdomen

    You may feel bloated, the abdomen expands in the same manner as it does during pregnancy, this can be caused by buildup of gas, fat, feces, and urinary retention.

    The Solution

    You can use a home pregnancy test, which can give you a false pregnancy positive results, so, if you need a more accurate way to detect an early pregnancy symptoms you can use the clinical blood test which is more accurate.

    But I hope if you are experiencing early pregnancy symptoms, they are true and soon you will be mom :D, Good Luck
