Cybercrime is at an all-time high. The Department of Homeland Security explains that as Americans become more reliant on modern technology, they become more vulnerable to cyber attacks. Criminals aren’t just stealing your physical property anymore, they are robbing you virtually. Every single time you use the internet, you are at risk of becoming a victim of cybercrime and you should always use caution. As technology advances, so do cyber attacks. Learning about cybercrime can help protect yourself and your children from becoming virtual victims. Remember, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Back to school shopping as a mom of all girls means we are in constant motion to find the cutest, the hippest, the brightest, and the sparkliest shoes, clothing, and gear stores have to offer. As a self-proclaimed “dress yourself to express yourself” mom, my girls often look like they spent some time in a Frozen-themed glitter factory. And most days, I don’t mind that. But this is the first year that everyone will be in some type of “school” (big kid school and preschool), and I feel like I need to step up my game in the back to school arena. Don’t get me wrong – they will still be rocking dinosaur dresses and cowgirl boots with a bright pink backpack – but at least they will have some of the coolest gear around.

Electric toothbrushes are quickly replacing the standard toothbrush in many homes as consumers fall in love with the fresh, deep-clean feeling of a strong motor versus their own arm power. It’s true, studies show that electric toothbrushes do clean your teeth, gums, and tongue better than the typical toothbrush, while also encouraging consumers to brush their teeth for a longer period of time than one normally would. And just when we thought electric toothbrushes couldn’t get any better, FOREO ISSA came along and created a game changer in oral health care for both adults and kids.
Technology has made life extremely convenient in so many ways, yet, there may be a hefty price to pay for it. Cell phones, computers, tablets, laptops, electronics, wireless devices, and all the other snazzy electronic devices around us have one or more dangerous components about them: EMF’s (electromagnetic emission frequency). This leads to massive energy interference which have adverse effects on the health of you, your children, and your teenagers (whom of which are more vulnerable)… unless you arm yourself with some dot gadgets.

If your child is school age or approaching it, you may notice that they prefer learning one way over another. Don’t stress trying to put your child into a “learning style” box. No learning style is better than another. Most emerging learners are like people, better when they are a collaboration of many different styles and ideas. You may find some children have a more dominant style, while others have a dominant style that varies depending on the activity. Observe your child in play by themselves and with others; you may start to notice a natural preference.
There are seven main styles of learning: Visual, Aural, Verbal, Logical, Social, and Solitary. It is important to understand learning styles and how to better engage your child. You can work with your child in their preferred method for some learning, then try combining others ways to help learn from another approach. Below we’ve broken down what each one means and different ways to engage and challenge your emergent learner.
A website is one of the most powerful tools you can have for your business. From launching a new company to enriching an existing one, a good website will help you attract more customers, maintain business relations, and develop your brand.
Building a website can be a complicated process, but for most small business owners, less is more. Just like the last term paper you wrote, your website should focus on the five W’s of your company.
Although it seems like it’s been around forever, body shaming is a relatively new issue facing our young girls today. The age of social media and reality television has taken the act of critically looking at women’s bodies away from scouts of runway models and puts it into the hands of every person who has a smartphone. Even before this new generation of technology, women were praised looking a certain way, but the era of photoshopped magazine covers and edited Instagram photos have given us regular folks a false sense of what a person’s body – no matter their size – actually looks outside of staged shoots.
