Showing your dogs that you love them is essential because even if dogs can’t talk or they can’t show appreciation or comfort you in bad times; but still by showing them affection and love they can deeply understand your feelings towards them.

Constantly hug them, pat them on the head, rub their belly, play with them talk to them and speak their language; they may not respond to what you’re saying, but they are listening. And sleep with them it will make the dog feel secure and comfortable to sleep beside you.

After graduating from college, a fresh graduate’s mind is set in seeking and finding a job. But here are some pointers and advantages why it is still better to use your computer and apply online than being a walk-in applicant.

It may be bad for the kids to grow up with technology

Always remember that there are two sides to every coin. There is something positive and useful in one scenario can be negative in another, and may even be used against your child.

Privacy

According to this article “kid phones” When a kid owns a cellphone and they have  an account at Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms their parents are unaware of what their child is doing online. But, It is also bad to ground and snatch their cellphones and look at the history and the page they are viewing to know what they are looking and searching on the internet.

To build your kids trust, he/she needs to see that you trust them too; you need to show them and prove it to them so that they will be open to you, close parent-child relationships built on trust and open communication. When that happens they will tell you what they are doing, where are they going and who are the people they are adding on Facebook because they know you trust them and they will tell you the truth and they will not break your trust at them.

As parent you want the safety of your child, you need to advise them not to put everything, personal information and stuffs on their cellphones and on their social media accounts. They also need to disable and turn their GPS location off to prevent them from getting tracked by other people. There is a chance and a great possibility for other people especially hackers to access other people’s account, identity and information and they may use it for their own use, steal money or to damage a people’s reputation.

Distraction and Interaction

When kids are constantly staring and using their mobile phones their attention is fixed on the screens of their cellphone and they are only focus in using it. I.e. when they are playing a game on their phone or checking their Facebook and they need to do their chores and finish their homework, they may ignore you when you scold them, and get lazy in getting things done and finishing it on time.

It will also lead to disobedience, lying and passive-aggressiveness. And because everyone can communicate and chat with their friends and loved ones just by using their cellphones do you know that it is also causing and harming the kids to lose their social skills and their ability to interact, communicate and socialize with other people.

 

Why it’s good for your child to own a cellphone?

Contact

Cellphone messaging is the modern way of receiving and sending a mail letter at the post office to your friend and loved ones, sometimes it is even faster than email.

According to this article about “cellphone for kids”, 21% of children 8 years and younger use smart phones! 78% of children aged 12 to 17 already have a cell phone. It is also a good thing to give your child a cellphone because it helps you keep in constant contact with them.

I.e. What if their teacher sent them out of the school earlier than you’ve expected, who will pick them up? Or if they attended a practice or a group report at their classmate’s house and then trouble arises and they’re in danger, how would you know and where would you find them? When they own a cellphone they can contact you and you can locate their whereabouts with GPS. It is really essential in maintaining a daily link with your kids.

Accessible

It is very accessible and they can bring their smartphones anywhere. What if they need to contact you or they need to research stuffs online? They can’t carry a monitor, cpu and the keyboard at the same time, right? But they can even put 2 mobile phones in the pocket of their jeans.

Research and Learning

You can search everything on the internet, when your kids own a cellphone inn their school he/she already have an advantage among their classmates. I.e. they can use their smartphones to study their lessons or do their homework in advance while they are having their break.

Kids can also learn new things and skills online using their mobile phones, I.e. Learning basic foreign language, they can even search instrumental chords and music sheets if they are playing any musical instruments, they can download books and novels online, read health and knowledgeable articles, and also inspirational quotes to inspire, motivate and boost their positivity. But tell them not to use their cellphones while they are inside the class or while their teacher is teaching.

Meeting new friends

Maybe every human being in this world owns a gadget specifically a cellphone and they have their own Facebook, twitter and other social media accounts. This is the fastest way in communicating and catching up with you friends and loved ones who’re living on the other side of the globe.

Your kids can also meet new friends online using their cellphones, a new friend from their book group, a new friend from their mutual friends or from the games they are playing. You should not stop them in expanding their social circle, you just need to advise them and tell them not to fully trust all the people they are making friends with and that you need to know and meet them personally too.

 

Leaving to Live

Realization

When did you first realize that you want to leave your country to travel or move into another country, go into different places and exploring different cultures? But what’s stopping you? Traveling across the world to a foreign land can be extremely intimidating and yes, it’s so hard leaving your hometown when you know that it’s comfortable there and you would never leave. As a human being you’ll long for a place you associate with what you perceive to be your home spot.

Then something spontaneous happens you realized what direction you are interested in taking your life, that you are the only one who will know what you really want your life to be and there is no reason you would not follow your heart and to not regret in not doing it. To go out, get outside and do something with other people, move, explore and see the world.

Expanding your network and meeting new people

Sometimes you just need a little mingle and do the first move to make new friends with other travelers and locals, people with different perspectives but sharing the same aspirations with you and get to know their side of the story. Who can expose you to their culture, food, tradition and experiences. Giving you a chance to expand your network in addition to your friendship and social circle. You will learn to communicate in different ways and also travelling provides opportunities to meet a huge diversity of new people and see how other people live.

Meeting another traveler is a good thing because you both share the same interest ,they are dauntless and ready for challenges just like you; you will never know you might find your true love or meet your best friend across the globe.

Distinctly, the environment and the nature is one of the best places to meet new people and make friends.

Experiencing

They said that you don’t need to be rich to travel the world.

Joan Opeña, a good friend of mine who loves to travel said that there’s nothing more thrilling than being exposed to different cultures, people, & food. It’s an adventure in every corner you go…and getting lost in a foreign land may just be the best thing that could happen to you. Whenever she travels, she feel free, brave, rebellious even! “You can be anyone you want to be for a few days, or even be yourself without worrying if your rubber shoes or sneakers don’t match any of your outfits! You find a piece of yourself when you travel, & that is a feeling that you constantly crave for… thus the term “wanderlust” makes so much sense to you”, She added.

Walk, wander and join a local festival. Enjoy the sights and experiences that you cannot get at home, Taking it easy and go slowly, get there slower and enjoy the ride. It broadens your horizon and it challenged you to see the world outside of your comfort zone.

Travelling is a journey to self-discovery; it gives you context in learning new things, do fun and unique things that you cannot do in your home country. It will give you a new perspective about life and especially your life. These experiences increase your knowledge and understanding, making you a better and wiser person.

When you embrace and welcome the unfamiliar, foreign and the new path you will not only learn about others, you will also learn about yourself. Traveling to a different country lets you experience life in a different way.
