If there are any drawbacks to the kitchen of a camper (and I’m hard-pressed to come up with many!) it would be that storage is at a premium, especially for full-timers. With time and a little trial and error you can usually find the space you need for your cookware, bake ware, tableware and small appliances. I didn’t like wasting space on cookbooks or trying to keep track of pieces of paper or small note cards, what a headache.
What a difference 30 years makes! Anything and everything is available, whether you’re into tenting, travel trailers, fifth wheels, Class C or Class A motor homes, the amenities available in the rigs and in the campgrounds are endless. One of the amenities that manufacturers have accommodated us with is the kitchen. No longer are you required to cook hot dogs over the fire or set up the Coleman stove on the picnic table, although it is still fun to do on occasion. Now we can cook full course meals and bake to our hearts content in the warmth and comfort of our climate controlled camper.
Remember to spy (physically go through your child’s things) only if they give you reason to believe that they could be in harm’s way. If your child is willing to talk openly about what is going on in their life then you should avoid going through their things and listen. Spying in this way should only be done as a last resort. Following your child around in an unmarked car is less meddlesome than ransacking your child’s belongings. Your child will not be too offended by this gesture, just a bit freaked out. So it is always okay to follow your child if you suspect something is wrong.
Panic attacks and anxiety attacks go hand in hand. The most common anxiety and panic attacks suffered by children is GAD, which stands for Generalised Anxiety disorder. In children it is usually due to excessive worrying. They may worry about everyday events, and events that will take place sometime in the future. Health may be a worry, performance at school, performance in after school activities, and friendships etc. Often children will worry so much that it interferes with their daily lives and they may find it a problem sleeping which in turn creates other health problems.
What if there were an easier way? What if you could simply get up, have your child eat, get dressed and send him or her off to school all with the touch of a button. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?
Resist Comparisons and Offer Empathy. Don’t you ever compare him with other child or even with their siblings it will be the cause of having bad image with themselves or having self-pity. Let you appreciate him for what he was and what he had. This can help your child learn that we all have strengths and weaknesses, and they don’t have to be perfect to feel good about themselves.
In college, last minute works usually does not count. By hogging on your computer the night before your deadline, you are actually endangering yourself and your grades. Make it a habit to complete all assignments bit by bit instead on compiling them into a humungous pile. Staying constant also applies to your ability to keep up to date with daily assignments and projects. The ability to keep up with your revisions will also help you a bundle.
Exercise – It’s really pertinent that we learn to incorporate 20-30 minutes of exercise into our day atleast 3 times a week. Your metabolism will increase, energy level will rise and you will begin to feel like a brand new person. Walking, jogging, gardening and for some of us who just weren’t born with that exercise gene daily house cleaning will do the job.
