Do You Want to Keep Your Teen Safe? Teach Them How to Avoid Speeding.

Speeding is something that every driver has been guilty of at least once. We have all had days where our patience ran thin and we found ourselves rushing to get home as quickly as possible. We know doing so is a bad idea, and yet we did it anyways. Speeding puts drivers at an increased risk of experiencing a more severe accident.

Out of all of the age groups, teens are some of the most likely to speed. This is largely due to their inexperience with driving, and their excitement of finally having a bit of freedom to go where they choose. To ensure the safety of their children, parents need to make sure that their children understand how dangerous speeding can be.

An important fact to point out, is that speeding doesn’t just mean going over the legal speed limit for the road...

How did we get the Easter Bunny?

How did we get the Easter Bunny?

How did we get the Easter Bunny?

Hippity hoppity, here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping along the bunny trail. The Easter bunny comes and visits little boys and girls every spring. He hides eggs filled with treats, and brings baskets full of gifts for the kids. However, where does he come from? Where does the bunny trail that he hops along every year start?

If you think about it, it makes sense. Spring is the season for rebirth. The flowers are in bloom and little critters are seeing the world for the first time. Way back when, most pagan cultures celebrated the springtime with festivals. Other cultures celebrated a spring goddess Eostre. Eostre was associated with rabbits, and eggs, which are both symbols of fertility.

Do You Dream of Naptime Being Longer? These Daycare Workers Did and Got Into Serious Trouble.

While any parent will tell you that having kids is truly amazing, they will also very likely tell you that having kids can be extremely tiresome. Children have a lot of energy and are constantly going, unlike us adults who ran out of energy years ago and still manage to plough on somehow. This difference in energy levels can make looking after children a real challenge.


Many parents would agree that one of the best times of the day, is nap time. When the kids are sleeping, they are finally calm and quiet. For an almost too brief amount of time, they cannot cause noise and trouble. Everything is peaceful and the adult looking after them gets a few moments of utter bliss.
