Have Fun Teaching Your Older Children How to Protect Themselves

It is easy when they are little. You keep them indoors unless you are going to be outside too. You check for monsters under the bed and make sure the doors are locked. But way to soon, your babies turn into teens and young adults that have to go out into the world alone. Teach them how to stay safe while spending some quality time together.

Self-Defense Classes
Check with your local community center for self-defense classes being held in your area. These classes are informative for people of all ages. The instructors are often police officers that know first hand what you can encounter in a dangerous situation. Make a night of it by going out to grab a bite to eat after the class. This gives you one on one time with your child to discuss what you learned.

Learning to Shoot

If you already know how to handle a firearm, you can teach your child yourself. Otherwise, contact the local shooting range to inquire about an instructor that can teach both of you. Once you get past that, you can take concealed carry classes. Finish up your adventure with a shopping trip for concealed carry clothing .

Practice Safety

Long before they are ready to go off to college, you need to be setting a good example of how to stay safe. Be in the habit of always locking the doors when you get home and keep windows latched. Explain how important it is to park in well-lit areas, and make sure car doors are also locked each time you enter or exit the vehicle. Most importantly, be aware of your surroundings.
Taking self-defense classes together, learning to shoot, and practicing safe behaviors together makes these lessons fun, and one day they will be part of you and your child’s special memories. Best of all, you will feel much better about them heading out into the world on their own.

Creative Ways to Throw a Fun and Unique Birthday Party

Everyone loves cake and ice cream, but there are so many ways to get more creative with your kids' birthday parties. Choose a theme or event that your child already enjoys and recreate the atmosphere at home for a personal and memorable birthday party your friends and family will love! These themes are easy to pull off in your own backyard and appeal to almost every age.

Host a Carnival

Set up a few game booths, a face painting table and a concessions stand to throw a carnival-themed birthday party in your yard. Take things to another level of fun and entertainment by renting inflatables new jersey. Instead of sending everyone home with typical party favors, have the kids earn tickets at the games to exchange for prizes. Balloons and bright colors make for fun and easy decorations and corn dogs and cotton candy are great snack options.

Create an Outdoor Movie Theater

It's relatively inexpensive to rent or borrow a projector that can turn the side of your house into an instant movie screen. This night time party can feel even more magical with string lights hung overhead throughout the yard. Guests can lounge on blankets, sleeping bags or cushions while munching popcorn and nachos and enjoying a favorite film. A birthday cake topped with sparkler candles is a great finale to this birthday under the stars.

Design Your Own Escape Room

Older children and teens love solving mysteries and deciphering clues. You can create your own escape room at home by using ready-made kits or designing your own. Choose an exciting or mysterious theme, like roaring twenties dinner party, an haunted castle or an alien spaceship. Invite your guests to attend in costume and decorate your space to make it feel like you've stepped into a real-life mystery. Theme music and sound effects can create an even more dramatic atmosphere for the party.
Birthdays are the perfect time to use your imagination and create lifelong memories for you and your children.

Finding Off-Broadway Shows

Whether you’re trying to discover the next big thing, avoid the masses at blockbuster plays and musicals or save money on tickets, seeing an off-Broadway show might be your answer. Performed in venues with a seating capacity between 99 and 499 people, these performances might play to smaller crowds but definitely don’t have lower entertainment value. Find seats to these fascinating shows with a variety of techniques.

Word of Mouth

Because entertaining off-Broadway shows generate a lot of buzz, get the word on the street to determine what ticket to buy. Ask co-workers, friends, family members or even theatergoers on the subway which productions they’ve seen and loved. You can also turn to NYC theater reviews for the lowdown on compelling smaller productions in your favorite genres.

Consider Your Mood

Off-Broadway shows run the gamut from larger productions that are just starting out to small interactive experiences and revivals. Determine the type of theatre experience you’re in the mood for, then search ticket listings by genre to choose the specific show you’d like to see. Everything from comedy and drama to one-act plays, solo performances and edgy performance art are available each season.

Follow Favorites

Discover productions you’ve never considered by visiting the social media accounts of your preferred actors, writers and directors who are off-Broadway staples. You’ll not only learn where they’re currently appearing but might also catch a glimpse of their future projects. Visit the websites of favorite theaters or producers for information on current productions and sign up for notifications about upcoming shows that you can look forward to.
Although they may not receive as much buzz as their Broadway counterparts, off-Broadway shows can sometimes be even more engaging in a more intimate setting. The next time you’re heading to the theater, consider tickets to a performance in the smaller setting that might make an even bigger impression on you.

Pest Control Software - redefined.

Pest Infestations can damage a property and can affect your health. The hazardous bacteria that rodents and insects are carrying can expose family members to illnesses. It brings frustration and can possibly cause a considerable amount of money if not taken care of immediately.

A quick solution that we can easily get is buying pesticides that can temporarily provide a peace of  mind. But as we all know, the lasting and effective pest extermination procedure we can get is to hire a professional for a guaranteed result.

We actually had a pest and termite problem at home and we did hire a professional to do the job for a quicker and effective result. The price is not cheap. Good thing the contractor has better payment option that we availed using a 0% installment terms using a credit card. This way we can atleast enjoy the service without adding up a one time huge amount on our bills.

A better payment system is what makes the service easily available and won't make us think of getting it for a later time. Those termites were found on my sis-in law's kitchen ceiling. Having a duplex house, we share a wall and eventually be sharing those termites too. We never noticed any signs of infestation in our own home but to be on safer side, we availed a professional help for this.

We hired a reliable company referred by a friend. I remember, signing a whole contract in a folder as a start of a good working client-contractor relationship. That was 5 years ago, thankfully we never needed their help ever again. And another good thing is that Pest Control Company have gone beyond their way to provide a more advanced system.



They have this comprehensive pest control CRM Software as a catch  up in today's modern technology like Pocomos pest control software. Their new software was designed to offer paperless transactions, be simple to use, and to offer complete control over reporting through a versatile and customizable interface.

"The  system provides a cross-platform solution that is mobile and built to be tailored for each individual company that uses it. The web-based software gives its users the ability to receive live updates on a route or add a service to an existing account from any web-enable device."
The new software aims to eradicate reams of paper used for contracts and technician routes along with the hours of office employees that would usually create the archaic documents. This not only cuts down on costs, but provides customers with their account information on the Internet where they can pay their bills, request a service, and even get updates on the location of their technician.
Pest Control Companies not only increases its availability and effectiveness over the years, but also increases its operating efficiency to serve better by integrating a responsive and adaptable platform. In that way, I think their Customer Focus can highly be integrated.

Getting the work done via Team Effort & Home Service

As a stay at home mom, I too have a busy schedule. It seems like 24 hours wasn't enough to accomplished things that needs to be done. And so I learned how to maximize my time and prioritized the more important things at the moment.

Months ago, I decided to no longer hire a house help to teach my kids learn to do things on their own. I constantly remind them to be responsible starting with their own stuff as simple as putting the dirty clothes in the laundry bin to taking out their lunch boxes from their bags.

A good start of making them realized that they are responsible after their own mess. And it created a bonding time for us to stay at home and do the chores together and focus on team effort. Although it doesn't completely working well for there are complaints, constant whining and refusals. But hey, that's normal! right?

I am pleased on how things are turning out as we all learn to manage our time accordingly and appreciate everyone's effort. Although this time the house chores was mostly on me, I intend to see things differently and be more positive on how we can develop a sense of purpose, get to know ourselves better and improve our relationship.



It's basically true that children watch everything we do, so by teaching them firsthand on how to take responsibility and develop a good work behavior is a must.

Not that we can handle everything. Ofcourse, we still need some sort of help every now and then when things doesn't turn out as scheduled or needed a professional help on house or appliance service.

Home Services Professionals provide an easier solution to get things done but finding one that provides excellent service and professionalism seems daunting and time consuming. I recently scheduled a cleaning service for our air condition but it wasn't a pleasant experience. I have to wait for 3 days to follow up from the customer service for their accredited technician. Imagine the hassle of getting a poor service not worth of time and money? Wasteful.

A one good solution for this is to avail of a service that connects you to a good market, like Pronexis lead management service that provides solution of connecting homeowners to efficient service professional. It's a lead technology that saves you time finding recommendations and feedback to get the best service on our most ideal time.

Our generation is lucky enough to make our life easier, agree? Putting up together contacts that provides reliable service in our most convenient time is purely genius. As a stay at home mom who struggles on keeping the house well-maintained and in order, this solution is truly a life saver!

I feel like scheduling a home cleaning service once in a while whenever I feel the need to take a break and reward myself for the best "ME" time as a form of self-care.

Overall, asking for help to make life easier is not a bad idea and getting the best service that we deserve sums up a more  relaxing and rewarding experience.
