Some parents feel a little bit hesitant when their kids start talking about playing football or other sports while in school. Of course, they want their kids to have fun with others and get benefits that come from playing sports, like exercise and learning how to work as a team. However, the reason why they feel hesitant is because they do not want their kids to get hurt. They know that some sports injuries are so serious that they can either be fatal or affect the child for the rest of their life. The following tips can help kids stay safe while playing sports.

The very first thing parents want to do is teach their children how to use the protective gear that is available while they play sports. They need to help their children understand how important this protective gear is and how to use it. Helmets are one of the most common pieces of protective gear that children and adults can use while playing sports. They are used while playing baseball, hockey, football, and even while riding a skateboard. The helmet should fit properly. Other pieces of safety gear include pads, eye protection, mouth guards, and knee guards.

The next step is to warm up. Children should understand that it is not a good idea to just run out on the field and begin to play. They need to stretch and warm up their body in order to loosen up and be ready to play the game.

It is also important for your children to understand the rules of the game. Many injuries happen because rules are broken or they are not fully understood. Rules in games have been put in place in order to protect the players and should be followed at all times.

If your child is injured while playing a sport, it is important to help them get the medical attention they need right away. Do not think that they will just simply walk off the injury or it will go away on its own. Some things like a twisted ankle may simply need an ice pack. However, if it is more serious, getting the right medical care is key in helping the injury to heal properly. It may be necessary for your children or teenagers to need sports physical therapy of New York in order to completely heal.

Harvests from our Urban Garden

Urban Garden

Everything is possible when you put your heart into it.

We have a small vacant area in our yard and hubby is very much into gardening as his hobby. He loves to plant veggies and small fruit-bearing trees. We didn’t have a big place or wide areas with soil, mostly were cemented floors. So no other choice but to use containers or big pots in our front and backyard. He also used the vacant lot with the permission of the homeowners’ officers in the covered basketball court just in front of our house. He makes plots for his plants and when harvest time, gives some to people in the neighborhood.

Here are some of the vegetables and fruits we have harvested, his favorite is ampalaya (bitter gourd) while mine is the honey melon which I made into a refreshing drinks on my kitchen blog. 🙂  Aside from the produce above, we also have okra, radish, finger chili, bell pepper, onion springs , pechay (bokchoy), siling labuyo.

Even if we didn’t have the big space we want, we made it possible to produce the food we love, not only it saves us some money but we are sure that all we eat are organic as we didn’t use any chemicals as fertilizers or insecticides which we cannot say about the food we buy in the market today. Plus the joy we felt when we reap the fruit of our labor.

 

Grandma’s Playlist to be sung by kids

 

eat bulaga

I was watching my favorite noontime show Eat Bulaga and glad they made a new segment called “Lola’s Playlist” (Grandma’s Playlist) a compilation of old songs to be sung by – guess who… young kids! Yup these kids will sing songs that were popular when they weren’t or even their parents were born yet. Very ingenious, I just had to congratulate the creative minds of this show’s staff. Imagine those songs were from the 50’s to 80’s and these young generation are only 12 years old and below, very different from today’s modern music they are exposed to. So exciting to watch as how these youngsters will fair and how they will render their own interpretation on their grandmas and grandpas’ songs. 🙂

Thanks to the power of videoke with or without the twenty-five by Marshall amplifier that these kids were not really alien to these kind of songs and can sing them wholeheartedly, not counting the fact they are really talented. This new segment will definitely made me glued on the monitor more.
