How to Prepare for the New Baby

When a new baby is on the way, your precious child who has been the “Only Child” for as long as they’ve been alive will require some preparations that are initiated by you, the parent. It is completely natural for your child to progress through a variety of emotions, question their importance in the family structure, and quite possibly feel threatened. It is up to you to calm their anxieties, show them that nobody else can replace them – not even a cute little newborn! – and reassure them that the new baby is a wonderful thing, rather than something to feel threatened or worried about.

Without the Internet, the game consoles and the televisions, what in the world are children supposed to do for fun nowadays? It seems that children have been consumed into the technology age and have left behind the “old fashioned” games that used to bring hours and hours of fun, both indoors and outdoors. Gather the kids, turn off the televisions, game consoles and computers and let’s show them what real fun is!

Salt and Flour Clay

Most houses will have these simple ingredients. If not… they are cheap and easy to pack up in Ziploc baggies and bring in your nanny bag!!
