But rising divorce rates have shown us otherwise; many people get divorced, which can wreak havoc on your relationship with your kids and your finances if you re not careful. Here are some things you should know about family law if you want to keep your family intact and happy. 1. Divorce doesn t have to be that hard The dissolution of a marriage can make people mean and spiteful.

There are some new technological advances and healthcare subsidies that can make getting to the doctor less of a stressful event. Here are three doctor visits that you've been putting off for far too long:

Ten Things You Forget to Clean in Your House

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 19:16:25 GMT

Sometimes we simply forget to clean some things. Some of the places are hard to see, some we just don't think about that often. Here are ten places you might forget to clean and how to clean them.†
Shower Curtain
Soap scum and mildew can make a mess of your shower curtain. Clean your shower curtain by putting it in the washing machine with two large towels. Add Ω cup baking soda and your normal detergent during the wash cycle, then add 1 cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle. Let curtain drip dry.
Tops of Cabinets and Bookshelves
It's easy to forget these since we don't usually see them. A duster with a long handle makes this job easier.
Houseplants
The leaves of your houseplants can get dusty. A towel dampened with water is all you need to get your houseplants clean and healthy. Be gentle with the delicate leaves.
Base of Toilet
You'll want rubber gloves, a bucket with warm water and a bleach based cleaner, a scrub brush, and paper towels for this one. Scrub the surfaces

Life Insurance Considerations for Young Families

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:45:18 GMT

Will you soon be adding another member to your family? Congratulations. Now is the time when you might want to think about whether you have the proper life insurance coverage for a growing family. Read the tips below to learn a bit more about insurance for new parents.

1. Both parents should have coverage

Both you and your spouse should have life insurance that will provide coverage if something should happen to either one of you. After all, if one parent is left to raise the children, it can be very costly, both now and in the future, especially with college tuition being so high. The proper coverage for both you and your significant other will ensure that if something should happen to one of you, the remaining spouse will have financial aid in raising the children.

2. Add kids to the policy

• When children come along, you will want to add them to any existing life insurance policies as beneficiaries. If you feel that your present life insurance coverage is not

Rosacea Treatments

Sun, 26 May 2013 14:04:11 GMT

What is Rosacea?
Rosacea starts out as mild and occasional redness in the face that can look like a blush or light sunburn. Initially the redness might come and go but over time the symptoms become constant and can advance from redness to visible veins, acne-like pimples to thick skin and watery eyes if not treated.
Who gets Rosacea?
Women under 30 and from Northern and Eastern European ancestry are most likely to get rosacea but it can affect men and women of all ages and ethnicities.

Although there is no known cure for rosacea at this time, the symptoms can be managed and reversed through a variety of lifestyle and medical treatments.

Obagi C Is A Softer Version Obagi Nu Derm

Sun, 26 May 2013 02:57:13 GMT

Obagi C Rx System Review

Obagi C Rx is designed to lighten skin, clear up brown age spots and soften wrinkles and fine lines.

More Vitamins and Fewer Chemicals

Obagi C is similar to the famous Obagi Nu-Derm line and its popular product Obagi Clear in that it deals with hyperpigmentation (spots) and melasma (uneven skin color). However the Obagi C products have added vitamin C to build skin collagen and introduce antioxidants to combat skin-damaging free radicals.

Obagi C relies more on use of natural Vitamins C and E and less on prescription strength 4% hydroquinone as the main skin bleaching ingredient (though there is hydroquinone in one of the Obagi C products). Many patients report that using Obagi C means less peeling and redness compared to Obagi Nu-Derm, yet delivers similar if not the same results.

Obagi C Uses a Special Vitamin C Formula

Obagi has taken the common skin-improving ingredient 10% L-Ascorbic acid and made a special formula that lowers the pH

Five Best Sports for Asthmatics

Sun, 14 Apr 2013 14:01:22 GMT

Life with asthma can be tough growing up. Many individuals tend to miss out on the joy of competing in sports because of the fear of a sudden attack. Certain sports such as soccer, basketball, and long-distance running can put people at a greater risk of an attack because of their more aerobic nature.

Sports that involve short bursts of energy are generally better for those with asthma because they are less likely to leave you short of breath and consequently at a risk of an attack. Here are five sports that carry a considerably smaller risk of an attack during competition and are can be enjoyed by everyone.
1. Baseball/Softball
Long considered “America’s Pastime”, baseball is one of the most prestigious and competitive sports out there. Softball while named differently provides the same amount of joy and competiveness as baseball for girls. The nature of the game requires a tremendous amount of skill and athleticism but in short bursts with plenty of time out in

The Tricky Task of Safe Proofing a Home for Child Safety

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 20:13:28 GMT

Being a parent is difficult. No one will argue it. There are many aspects of performing the role of guardian that are inherently challenging. Having a child is a rewarding experience that starts the day a boy or girl is born and lasts forever.

A key area of focus for any parent surrounds the safety of their children. Fostering a secure and welcoming environment can make or break a childhood, and it’s crucial to understand this from day one. Below I focus on a specific area of parenting that can never receive too much attention: the house. The home is the nest that children should feel and be safe within.

The three general phases of childhood and specific measures to focus on within each stage are listed below. Family structure and situations are relative to the individuals involved, but these ideas are meant to lend advice on broad areas of concern.

Tips To Eat Right And Live Well With Your Family

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 13:57:57 GMT

Promoting a Healthy Family
A healthy family makes a happy, emotionally fulfilled family. There are some steps you can take to assure that your family is at peak performance while encouraging emotional bonding.
Food High In Nutrition
People’s tastes and habits are influenced by the foods that their peer groups and families indulge in. Making healthy food available instead of sugary snacks is a solid tactic for promoting a healthy diet.

People tend to be predisposed to preferring foods high in fat and sugar, so limiting access to these foods and providing healthy alternatives will jump start your family into a healthier lifestyle that will put your bodies and minds into better working order.

Another tactic for healthy eating is the traditional family meal. That time where members sit around the table and enjoy the ambiance of being with each other is an important aspect of healthy eating patterns.
Studies have shown that when food is consumed in a group environment where
