Your 2-year-old now

Since your child is picking up English so rapidly, you might wonder if now's also the time to expose him to other languages. There's evidence that children learn languages more easily in the early years because their brains are so feverishly making new neural connections. They can literally hear all the unique sounds of a foreign tongue better than a teenager or an adult. Kids who grow up in a bilingual household are thought to have a combined vocabulary that is equivalent to or greater than that of monolingual children, and being bilingual has been shown to have lasting cognitive benefits.

The catch is that the best way for your child to learn a language now is through conversation with a native speaker. Tapes or weekly classes are less effective, because it's the face-to-face observations and repetition that help the brain most. Your child is also far more likely to retain the second language if continuously exposed to it as he grows. Chinese lessons only from ages 2 to 4 will not make your child proficient at 18. Some research, though, shows there may be a brain-connection boost, even if your child never becomes fluent.

If you like the idea of exposing your preschooler to another language, look for translations of popular children's books to read together. If your child's babysitter is bilingual, encourage her to speak her native language with your child.

Your life now

It's not unusual for the parent of a preschooler to wake up one day and realize that even her adult conversations revolve almost exclusively around ... preschoolers. Jump-start your brain by having a "kid-free meal" with friends or your partner – no children present either physically or verbally. Take some time for self care. Consider signing up for a class or a book club (though book clubs made up of moms are notorious for veering right back to kid talk after a brief chat about, you know, the book).

Cross vouchers are not granted

The voucher cards, which should have been issued from January 1, are still far from reaching the beneficiaries. The Ministry of Labor has established that these vouchers can be granted to parents who return to work before concluding their child-raising leave.

The voucher cards, which should have been issued from January 1, are still far from reaching the beneficiaries. The Ministry of Labor has established that these vouchers can be granted to parents who return to work before concluding their child-raising leave.
They have not yet been printed and it is not very clear how they will be used. The nursery vouchers should have been printed by the same companies that make the meal vouchers, but this has not happened yet.
"Not all employers are obliged to grant vouchers, they must meet certain conditions, according to the tax code. of Public Finance Hunedoara.


Church vouchers should have been issued starting January 1st.
"The value of a ticket is 300 RON, they are granted to employees who do not benefit from leave through the child rearing administration," said Octavian Bagescu, director of the Department of Labor and Social Solidarity, Hunedoara.
The manner of using the vouchers is not clearly described.
"I have not seen them, I do not know what they look like, but I see a discrepancy between the amount of a monthly ticket and the food allowance established by government decision, it is a difference of two million that I do not know what will happen to her," Florian said Cazan, director Cresa Deva.
In Deva there is only one church, where 50 children up to two years old are enrolled. For them, parents pay 90 lei per month.

Water filter, the best solution for safe and clean water

The human body contains 69% of water, this being the most important element for a healthy organism. No matter how healthy you try to live, if the water you drink is not good, the effects will be seen over time.

Where can we get good water?

Tap water it has chlorine, fluorine, parasites, sediments, rust etc. Most of these components are not removed by boiling, as one would think, so that if we drink only bottled water, but we cook with tap water, we are not safe from unwanted substances.

Bottled water we find it mostly in plastic bottles; the plastic contains phthalates that reach the water in temperature variations. The same bottled water contains nitrites and nitrates, it is right that within the legal limit allowed (50 milligrams / liter), but this limit is challenged by doctors and far too high for children and babies. E's are also allowed by law, but we all know how "good" it is to consume them.

Mineral water, consumed in large quantities, leads to an accumulation of minerals in the body beyond our need. Children are not allowed to drink mineral water because their body is not strong enough, and the proper functioning of the kidneys should not be hindered by mineral uptake. Therefore, children should not drink water with a degree of mineralization exceeding 120 mg / l (0.12 gr / l) and with a sodium content of over 20 mg / l (0.02 gr / l).

For a clean and safe water we have 2 variants:

  • spring water, bottled in the glass container directly from the source;
  • filtered water with activated carbon (carbon) filter.

3M Aqua Pure Easy Complete Filters there are drinking water filters for the sink, activated carbon filters and 3M faucet included. They have a price of 396 lei including VAT, and the package contains the faucet filter system and all the components you need to install, plus the filter cartridge. Delivery is free by courier.

You can purchase the 3M Water Filter from the bio products site: www.bioproducts.ro.

The cartridge can filter 2,839 liters (the equivalent of 1,420 2 liter water bottles) and it is recommended to change it at 6 months. The cartridge price is 148 lei VAT included and is delivered free of charge by courier.

The budget economy is at least 90%, if we refer to the 5-liter cans, and 95% if we refer to the 2-liter water bottles. Also, it is avoided the transport and storage of water cans.

But what does the filter do, though?

  • eliminates chlorine: 96-98% (including its taste and smell);
  • change the taste;
  • eliminate odor;
  • eliminates sediments, including invisible ones with the naked eye: up to 0.5 microns, 99.4%;
  • reduces lead accumulation by up to 99.3%;
  • eliminates volatile organic compounds in the percentage of 92-99.8%;
  • eliminates cysts (eg giardia): 99.99%.

The filter is tested and certified by NSF International, the most important certification body in the field of filtration systems in the USA.

Beyond these figures, using the water filter you will have tap water like that of the spring - no taste, only clean water.

The filter is easily installed by anyone who has basic skills in house maintenance. There is no need for an installer, and for changing the cartridge anyone can handle, it lasts 5 seconds.

Pregnancy and the coronavirus (COVID-19): Symptoms, social distancing, and staying calm

Pregnancy and the coronavirus (COVID-19): Symptoms, social distancing, and staying calm

The data on pregnancy and the novel coronavirus is limited, but a preliminary study of 427 women in the UK showed that COVID-19 doesn't appear to pose a higher risk of severe illness to pregnant women compared to other women. Of those women in the study who became ill enough to be hospitalized, 1 in 10 received intensive care. The majority of those hospitalized were in their third trimester --emphasizing the importance of social distancing -- and more than 50 percent were black or of another minority ethnic group.

Symptoms and calling your doctor

The symptoms of the coronavirus (COVID-19) are similar to colds and other common respiratory illness. They include fever, cough, and shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, and the loss of taste or smell.

According to the CDC, symptoms can appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure to the virus. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, you should be in contact with your doctor (even if you think there's no way it's COVID-19). And be sure to call your provider should you have any other worrying symptoms or medical concerns.

As the coronavirus continues to impact the U.S., the basic services you rely on won't be going back to normal for weeks. If you haven't already, contact your OB or midwife and discuss a plan for continuing your care and how to handle your prenatal testing. You may also want to stock up on key supplies for your pregnancy and recovery such as food and medicines.

How to protect yourself from COVID-19

While there's no vaccine available for the coronavirus, all of the CDC's recommended preventive measures are the same as those you'd use to protect yourself from the flu:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Practice "social distancing" (see below).
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Wear a face mask in public settings: The CDC recommends wearing simple, non-surgical cloth face coverings in settings, such as supermarkets, where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. (Face coverings should not be worn by children under 2 years old or by anyone not capable of removing them on their own.)
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Make sure your children wash their hands properly as well.
  • Do not skip prenatal appointments.
  • Ask your healthcare provider for individualized tips on how to stay healthy during the pandemic.

If you're in a place where soap and water aren't available, the CDC recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. If your hands are visibly dirty, wash them with soap and water as soon as you can.

Finally, it bears repeating that social distancing is a highly recommended step to take in protecting yourself and your family. Limiting contact with others outside your immediate family can reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Social distancing basics

Increasingly, authorities and medical experts are advising people to practice social distancing – minimizing contact with people outside your immediate family – especially if you live in a community where the virus is known to be spreading. Social distancing can help reduce your chances of contracting the virus or unknowingly spreading it to others. (Reports suggest people with the virus often don't show symptoms for several days and a significant percentage show no symptoms at all.)

Exact guidelines for social distancing may vary from place to place, but in general, here is what experts are recommending:

  • Stay home as much as possible. This includes minimizing nonessential shopping trips, travel, and outings. If your job allows it, work from home. Try to go out to stock up on food and necessities as infrequently as possible or have them delivered to your home.
  • Get outside, just keep your distance. You can still get fresh air and exercise – it's good for your stress level and health. You could go for a walk in the park, for example. Just keep at least 6 feet or more between yourself and others.
  • Cook at home. Dr. Asaf Bitton, a primary care physician and executive director of Ariadne Labs, writes in Medium that cooking at home is safer than getting take-out. He suggests buying restaurant gift cards for later use to support local businesses.
  • Connect digitally with friends and family. Social distancing doesn't have to mean social isolation. You can use FaceTime or Skype to check in with grandparents and friends who may be feeling isolated. Or try video chat apps like Zoom and Google Hangouts that allow you to get together as a group from your homes. These platforms are a great resource for throwing a virtual baby shower or virtual gender reveal.

These measures may sound difficult, even extreme. However, this is not forever. If everyone does their part now to help slow the spread of COVID-19, we can save lives, prevent our health system from becoming overwhelmed, and improve our chances of returning to some semblance of a normal routine sooner rather than later.

Keeping calm and dealing with COVID-19 stress

If you're worried about the coronavirus, you're not alone. In fact, it's perfectly normal to be feeling more anxious during pregnancy even when everything is okay in the world. Dealing with your stress head on and taking care of yourself in this time is the best thing you can do for a healthier pregnancy. Consider:

  • Just say no and slow down or even cut down on your to-do list. Now is not the time to be a rock star.
  • Drop or reassign some chores. Use the time you get back to decompress with a book, a nap, or however you prefer to relax.
  • Use sick or vacation days, if you have them, to just concentrate on yourself and staying calm.
  • Give deep breathing, meditation, stretching, or yoga a try.
  • Get outside when you can for a walk (while avoiding others, of course).
  • Plan healthy, well-balanced, and energy-boosting meals and snacks.
  • Go to bed early.
  • Skip the news overload. Yes, the coronavirus is a fast-changing story with developments that you probably should know about. But you don't need to be tapped into the newsfeed all day long. Also, avoid the more panicked social media pals or feeds you follow. Get your information from experts, not social media. You need to be informed, but you don't need to be overwhelmed. Focus on yourself and your health.
  • Check in with support groups that offer real comfort. Explore the our site Community to connect with women who are sharing your experience.
  • If you feel like you're losing it, ask your healthcare provider for a recommendation for a therapist. Many can consult with you over the phone. Listen to their advice for dealing with your anxiety and stress. The self-care you can do now can pay off in a healthier pregnancy and reduces your chances for postpartum depression.

our site understands that the coronavirus pandemic is an evolving story and that your questions will change over time. We'll continue asking moms and dads in our Community what they want to know, and we'll get the answers from experts to keep them – and you – informed and supported.

This story was updated on July28th, to reflect the latest data from the CDC, the current guidance from many government and health organizations, tips on how to stay calm and reduce your anxiety, and suggestions on how you and your family can practice social distancing.

Bottle mothers = decent and lazy women? So what is the difference between a propagator and a follower The benefits of natural feeding could be long. We know that this is the best food for a toddler, we know his wonderful properties, we understand the benefits of this most natural feeding act. I don't know a young woman who, stroking her pregnancy belly, says: I will feed you with a bottle. We all want the best for our child. Conviction of this only right way means that some of us bear the first maternal defeat. The more painful because the current "return to nature" in almost all areas of life finds more and more "followers". What is the difference between a propagator and a follower? After meeting the first one, we gain knowledge and useful tips. The second is only to show his superiority and contempt for those who think differently, or badly.

How to become bottled?

The most common reason for giving up breastfeeding is lack of knowledge. Beliefs about draconian nursing diet, too fat, too skim milk etc. still persist. Fortunately, such views are becoming rarer. The vast majority of bottled people are recruited from among women who have theoretical knowledge, lost in the face of trouble. There was no support or access to a professional advisor. Some women switch to formula feeding under the influence of ... doctors. Many of them are still trying to treat, for example, allergies.

Pain after stopping

A mother who, convinced of the power of breastfeeding, switches to breastfeeding and suffers a defeat. Feelings of conscience, complexes, regret, guilt - these feelings accompany mothers who failed. Newspapers for parents, portals about children - everything reminds of defeat. The advantages of feeding, which she recently proudly exchanged in the same breath, are starting to get pregnant. Of course, this is a temporary state. The woman will soon find the joy of bottle feeding, observe the harmonious, healthy development of her toddler and stop being bothered by thoughts that deprived her child of the chance for a healthy start. Well, unless it hits the clutches of fanatical followers ...

Lazy Cows

The reason for feeding FEED is mothers' laziness. Cow's milk is for calves. Women choosing a bottle are deprived of maternal instincts, they are not able to sacrifice themselves for the good of their children. Only breastfeeding builds a mother-child relationship. Mothers fed babies are healthier and smarter than their formula-fed peers. And they have a better bite. They walk faster, they speak better. Good mothers are breastfeeding. Enough? This is a selection of general theses made by light-blooded regulars for internet forums and social networking sites. Just naming feed-modified milk is an extremely mean act. Comparing other children to calves is a blow below the waist. And to think that the "best" mothers are capable of such cruelty to others!

For a healthy mind

Your milk is the best food you can give your baby, but it's not a magic potion. Studies show that breast milk increases immunity (hence the particular emphasis on feeding premature babies and sick babies in this way), great effect on brain development, and promotes building intimacy. Favors, helps but does not condition. Breastfeeding does not guarantee intelligence, health and fantastic relationships with the baby, just as mixture feeding does not exclude them.
What kind of people our children will grow on depends mainly on how we bring them up. Feeding is important but not critical. The key is how we adults perceive the world and treat others. By showing a lack of understanding and tolerance towards others, we pass these values ​​on to children. Let's think about it before we take part in an unnecessary skirmish next time.

Parents have some relationship with whether or not the child is friends

A study reveals that three-year-olds who are strongly tied to their parents are very likely to be positive, sensitive players who are easily adapted to their difficult nature.

Researchers at the University of Illinois have shown that a safely knit children they have a positive attitude towards their peers from the beginning, they have a good sense of their needs, and they prove to be a really good player.
THE Developmental Psychology During a study in the magazine, professionals, led by Nancy McElwain, looked at 114 middle-aged three-year-olds with their mothers, and also asked parents how much to make friends with their age. Half a year later, same-sex children were matched in pairs and behaviors were observed three times a month. The results showed that children with and, secondly, they were happy for the third time when the other child's aggressiveness decreased, but if the other child's behavior did not change, they didn't want to play with itor adapting and becoming more aggressive.
It also emerged from the examination that safely knit children at first they made suggestions and requests rather than commands and instructions, but if the others continued to be aggressive, the last time they were adapted to the situation.

Parents have some relationship with whether or not the child is friends

All in all, three factors influence how one relates to a previously unknown child. First of all, it is and how much they relate to their parents, second, that it is how aggressive the unknown child isand thirdly that how much the two kids know each other.
Of course, the child's nature and temperament were also influential factors, but it was in vain for someone to have a fundamentally difficult nature if he felt safe with his mother and did not have trouble with socializing.
