Teach Self Esteem to Your Daughters

I’m raising 8 girls (and 2 boys), so I’m living first hand the daily life with a houseful of estrogen.  Donna Bush has a lovely daughter and writes so well the important things to remember to do to teach our daughters how to have a healthy self-esteem. In her article, Teaching Self Esteem to your Daughters, she gives us six valuable tips that mothers around the globe are sure to be grateful for.

“It’s hard to be a girl. If you’ve got daughters, you’re probably well aware that the more things change, the more things stay the same. It’s likely that when you were growing up, you felt awkward and unsure. And today, your daughter is likely to feel that way, too. Self-esteem is something we need to teach, and more importantly, a model for our daughters to help them through their adolescent years, and beyond.We place a very high value on appearance in our society. As bodies change and hormones accelerate, girls can feel uncomfortable in their own skin. But if you wait until puberty arrives to start talking to your daughter about self-esteem, you’ve missed the boat.”

Blender Parsnip Soup

This past year we’ve been using parsnips in our diet more and more.  I was thrilled when Melissa Price shared this blender parsnip soup with us.   Read the recipe: Blender Parsnip Soup

“Smoothies and milkshakes are very popular during the spring and summer months but don’t hibernate your blender just because the weather is colder. For a new spin on how to use your blender while waiting for fresh fruits to come back into season, make some homemade soups. Blending soups make for a creamier and smoother soup texture, and an all-around comfort feel. Tomato, pea, and squash soups are simply made better in the blender. Try roasted parsnip soup to begin (what will be) a new love affair with blending for all seasons. Your blender will love you for it!”

This isn’t because I don’t love the kitchen itself, but the things that take place in the kitchen often become boring chores. Getting out of this rut it not always as difficult as you might think, but it does involve a lot of mind over matter positive thoughts and work.” (Sarah Chilton)

Internet Threats And How They Work

Spending too much time on the internet is not really a good thing. But if you cannot help it or your work depends on it, you might as well learn how to be cautious. There are many internet threats if you just click the wrong link or visit the wrong website.

Sure, there are antivirus and anti-malware available for downloads. Even the free version ones are as effective as the other paid ones. But you should remember that no antivirus is perfect. Sadly, even the best malware-detecting app you have installed can be bypassed no matter how updated you make it.

Know the internet threats

Now, if by some bad luck your computer happens to get infected by a malware, you should at least learn what they can do to your operating system. Some malware does not just disable some of your computing abilities but also spy on you. So try to read as much as you can and learn if the one that got your computer is one of the lesser things you should worry about or the worst.
