Is Your Teen Just A Snore, Or Is There Something Seriously Wrong?

Teens and sleep go together like chalk and cheese. In fact, by the time your kids reach 14+, they may well start to sleep for ten or more hours a night. There’s nothing unusual about that, and it’s mostly to do with hormonal swings, circadian rhythms, and all that growing. What many parents fail to realize is that there can be such a thing as too much sleep, even where grumpy teens are concerned. 

Sadly, sleep can be as much a sign of something wrong as it is a healthy indicator of a growing child. Of course, reasons for excessive snooze times vary depending on a teen’s personality, weekly workload, and more. But, some of the more worrying reasons they might be keeping those curtains closed include -

That New Diet You're On Is Probably Dangerous

The diet industry is massive. And for most moms, that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Practically everyone wants to lose weight, tone up, and make themselves look great.

For years, nutritionists have known that the best way to get a great body is to choose the right foods. When you eat right, you provoke biological changes that make you lean and fit.

“Diets” - as in radical changes to your regular eating pattern - promise that short-term modifications will help you get the body you want. How many women have told you that they’re “on a diet?”

Most diets, however, aren’t based on traditional foods proven to help reduce weight and keep people healthy - like the old Mediterranean diet of beans, whole grains, and vegetables. No - the majority of modern fat diets ask people to restrict entire food groups and sometimes, eat foods from categories that most should avoid.

Take the keto diet, for instance. The idea here is to shift the way your body burns fuel, away from regular glucose from carbs to ketones from burning fat. Practitioners, therefore, eliminate practically all starches and replace them with oils and meat - two food groups associated with adverse health outcomes.

As the following infographic shows, diets don’t work. The best way to achieve health is to change your lifestyle and follow the tried-and-tested methods of the past, such as the Mediterranean diet (or similar DASH diet). Extreme diets usually lead to you regaining all the weight you lose within five years - a tragedy given all the effort you put in.

Beach Vacay Advice That Will Protect Your Kids From The Sun

Think of a family vacation with the kids and memories of frolicking in the sand will spring to mind. You had such an incredible time that you want to repeat the experience over and over again. It’s as if there isn’t anything that can stop you or your loved ones when you’re in a foreign country on a golden, sandy beach. Well, anything but the sun. Unfortunately, UVA and UVB rays tend to be stronger on vacation as destinations are more tropical. That means protecting your children’s skin from burning.

Here’s some advice to help if you are searching for inspiration.

Pack Appropriate Clothing
The clothes in your suitcase will offer the most protection, which means you must bring the right items. Shorts and t-shirts are fundamentals, but they leave a lot of skin exposed to sunlight. With that in mind, it could be worth buying long-sleeved tees and board shorts, both of which have more fabric. Shirts are fantastic if you want them to be stylish and practical at the same time. There are even SPF shirts and tees that are manufactured to reflect the sun’s rays. Patagonia has some of the most rigorous outfits for kids.




And Accessorize
A humble accessory is enough to maintain a healthy amount of sunlight each day. Of course, a snapback is now a staple of most vacationers’ suitcases, but floppy, wide-brimmed hats are more suitable. The size of the brim means it covers everything from their face and head to their neck and shoulders. Sunglasses shouldn’t be dismissed either. Aside from being fashionable, quality shades keep the light out of kids’ eyes, which is vital when their peepers are growing because they’re very sensitive. A tip: don’t buy throwaway ones that last for the vacation. Instead, pick a top brand and splash out a little so that you know the lenses are adequately filtered.
