Who Do Kids Need More: Moms Or Dads?

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Researchers looked at 36 studies from around the world involving some 10,000 participants and found a common theme. They found that consistently, when children feel rejected from their parents they become more anxious, insecure, hostile, and aggressive toward others. Here’s how co-author of the review, Ronald Rohner explains it.

In our half-century of international research, we’ve not found any other class of experience that has as strong and consistent effect on personality and personality development as does the experience of rejection, especially by parents in childhood.

And whether the father’s love matters more than the mother depends on how your child sees you. Psychologists working on the International Father Acceptance Rejection Project (yes, someone is doing that!) think that children pay more attention to the parent they think has more prestige or interpersonal power.

So if Dad has a more dominant personality in the home his love — or lack of love — with matter more to his kids than their mother’s love. It’s a sobering thought. We don’t need science to tell us that. Except that we kind of do, because people still end up blaming moms for how kids turn out.

And it goes the other way. Dads should get more credit when they’re emotionally present. Props to you good dads who shower your kids with love and attention. Your love matters just as much as moms’.

Floor Tiles – A Reflection of Your Family Culture

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Flooring of a home can tell volumes about the living standard and behavior of the living family. A dirty floor gives the impression that the family living in the home doesn’t care much about cleanliness and hygiene. However, a sparkling clean floor seems inviting and greeting the guests. Concrete floor always look gloomy and wooden floors develop flakes and bristles within a few months. Those who know the value of tiling floors always use tiles when constructing or remodeling their homes.

What make floor tiles different from regular flooring is the features unique to them. Tiles are easy to clean and maintain. Made of clay, tiles are highly resilient towards moisture, dirt, dust and grime. In addition, they can withstand extreme weather conditions, weight and hard hit. They come in a wide array of colors, textures, designs and patterns. You will be surprised to know that you can tile your floor on your own. Everything required for tiling is easily available at home construction material stores. Your retailer will provide you tiles, adhesive, grout, sealant and safety gears to protect your hands and face from the chemical rich adhesive and grout.

Price is a concern for many and probably this is the reason that discourages many home owners from using floor tiles in their dwellings. There was a time when tiling was a considered a luxury only affluent class could afford. But today tiling is considered a necessity and this is apparent from mushrooming of the tile stores and shops. A wide array of clay and natural flooring is available in the market. You have the option to use cost effective clay slabs or expensive marble or granite pieces. There is literally no end to tiles and tile varieties in the market.

Use different floor tiles creatively and produce a unique floor design for your home. You can mix and match natural and clay tiles to get a beautiful flooring. Put expensive marble pieces on the living room and use ceramic slabs in the bedroom. For bathroom, you can choose porcelain or affordable quartz flooring. For kitchen, granite is the obvious choice. Slate makes perfect flooring for stairs, terrace, patio, entrance and garden pathway. In this way, you can decorate your entire home from entrance to the backyard garden.
