Everyday Banana Muffins - 26 Apr 2019 02:04

Tags:

<p>Banana bread or banana muffins are a staple recipe for using up those over ripe bananas that I often find sitting on my counter. My family isn’t big smoothie makers or I could keep them in the freezer for that. I can’t let those bananas go to waste, so I must do something with them. Bread or muffins is the best solution for us.</p>
<p>I recently venture out to try a new recipe to use up those bananas and I am so glad I did. This recipe is easy to throw together and the muffins are amazing. Now, they are great to eat anytime. However, the most amazing time to eat them is when they are still warm, especially with a little butter. They are magnificent! That whole tablespoon of vanilla in the recipe is what helps give these muffins that deep golden color.</p>

Harry Potter and the 56 anniversary editions: endless t - 23 Apr 2019 03:12

Tags:

<p><span class="drop-cap &lt;span class=" drop-cap__inner="" h<="" pan=""></span>arry Potter was the first book I ever read. I was eight and amazed by the fact I had read more than 200 pages without any illustration in a single day. I have been a superfan ever since. At the age of 13, I became a volunteer at Brazilian fan site data-link-name=&quot;in body link&quot; class=&quot;u-underline Potterish. Now I am editor-in-chief and last year I was invited to visit the set of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – a dream I never imagined could be possible.</p>
<p>But even I can no longer bear the over-publishing of Harry Potter books. There has been a constant stream of new editions and tie-ins that add nothing more than weight to my bookshelf, and money to the publishers’ pockets. And it’s a lot of money – Potter booksdata-link-name=&quot;in body link&quot; class=&quot;u-underline sent Bloomsbury’s revenue to &pound;161.5m last year, the highest level in its 32-year-history.</p>
<p>The most recent of these are the 20th anniversary commemorative editions: data-link-name=&quot;in body link&quot; class=&quot;u-underline according to official website Pottermore, there will be eight editions for every volume of the seven-book series – each honouring one of the four Hogwarts houses, available in hardback and paperback with slightly different covers. So 56 editions to celebrate the 20 years of the books – or rather, 56 decorative objects. I cannot imagine what will happen when the 50th anniversary arrives.</p>
<p>It’s difficult to make 56 special editions really special, but they haven’t really tried. There’s no new foreword, or any new additional information – which doesn’t make sense, considering that JK Rowling’s wizarding world is so deep that she created Pottermore to share what she hadn’t used in the books. Instead, Bloomsbury included some “facts” from the novels. The Philosopher’s Stone edition, for instance, informed readers that professors Flitwick and Sprout once had a long-term relationship. data-link-name=&quot;in body link&quot; class=&quot;u-underline This story data-link-name=&quot;in body link&quot; class=&quot;u-underline came from a fake tweet attributed to Rowling, and Bloomsbury later removed it.</p>
<p>In 2016, eight books about the making of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them were published. For sequel The Crimes of Grindelwald, released in cinemas last week, data-link-name=&quot;in body link&quot; class=&quot;u-underline there are 10 tie-in books, not including the screenplay. It is no surprise: even the wands used in the films now have their own book.</p>
<p>It makes no sense to pay several times for the same content – but a new cover and a few goodies cast a <em>Confundus</em> charm on the fans and convince them otherwise.</p>
<p>I wonder whether Rowling checks and approves all these editions. I suspect she doesn’t. Although she is careful with her brand, having refused potentially profitable tie-ins with fast-food chains, it would be impossible for her to check each new edition. She would have no time to write any more. But with a brand built on literature, everyone who loves the Potter world should be bothered by this glut of lacklustre books.</p>
<p>In the small Potter library I’m building, the illustrated books are the only recent publications that are not dead weight. Jim Kay’s poetic art enhances Rowling’s writing and fascinates even those who have read the series dozens of times. The same can be said about Olivia Lomenech Gill’s simple and practical style, which complements the Fantastic Beasts bestiary perfectly, though it seems inevitable that fans will soon be invited to buy another edition of that because of the new beasts invented for The Crimes of Grindelwald. There are also two illustrated editions of The Tales of Beedle the Bard: the British one by Chris Riddell, and the American version by Lisbeth Zwerger. I suspect the fanboy inside of me will speak louder than my cynical side, and I will end up with both. </p>
<p>Nostalgia is a lucrative emotion, but the fans must be respected. Although I believe books can change lives – as data-link-name=&quot;auto-linked-tag&quot; data-component=&quot;auto-linked-tag&quot; class=&quot;u-underline Harry Potter changed mine – publishing is a business. For the fans, however, these books have always been much more than a way of blowing cash. There’s enough content to make good editions, but publishers are choosing quantity over quality. Fortunately or not, the 20th anniversary celebration is far from over – there are still 40 more anniversary editions to come between now and 2027. Since I believe in magic, I’m hoping for a surprise.</p>

Beach Yoga Poses for Kids (Printable Poster) - 20 Apr 2019 03:56

Tags:

<p>Try a trip to the <strong>beach</strong> through beach yoga poses for kids!</p>
<p>Moving and playing together is great in any weather, but summer is especially enjoyable for beach yoga poses for kids. The sequence below will lead your family on a beach-inspired journey in your living room, backyard, or local park. Kids yoga is all about having fun, being imaginative, and engaging through movement.</p>
<p>Get out beach props like a beach umbrella, a beach chair, sunhats, or a bucket and spade. Look for beach-related books, toys, or photos. Put on your favorite beach music or the sound of ocean waves or animals. Make fun fruity drinks with umbrella straws. Cater to each of your senses.</p>
<p>Use your imagination! Once your “beach” is set up, jump in and act out what you find along the shoreline with your children. Discuss the “journey” with your children as you move together. What do they imagine seeing, hearing, feeling, and smelling.</p>
<p>The eight poses are listed in a specific sequence to invite flow from one pose to the next. Feel free to add or take out any of the poses to suit the needs and interests of your child. Being creative is always encouraged. Wear your comfortable beach clothing and practice barefoot. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t tried yoga before, just give it a go. The focus is on having fun, but please be safe.</p>
<h2>Beach Yoga Poses for Kids</h2>
<p>Kids yoga isn’t about perfect poses or rigorous exercise. It’s about participating in a healthy activity together that promotes a balanced lifestyle. Below find five beach yoga poses for kids to get you started on your pretend beach journey:</p>
<p>Sit back as if you are sitting in your beach chair. What smells do you notice at the beach?</p>
<p>Pretend you are the roof of the castle, and then come forward into a plank as if you are the bridge of the sandcastle. What does the sand feel like on your hands and in between your toes?</p>
<p>Lie on your belly, with the legs extended back behind you, lift your chest, and swim with your arms. What animals do you see in the water?</p>
<p>Lay on your back with arms and legs stretched out, breathe, and rest. What sounds do you hear?</p>

Maggie Dent has a brilliant tip for helping kids share - 17 Apr 2019 05:39

Tags:

<p>According to parenting educator Maggie Dent, boys have a language all of their own –&nbsp;one that isn’t spoken.&nbsp;</p>
<p>During Babyology’s recent Facebook live with Maggie, Emma, a mum of two young boys aged five and three, asked for advice on how to manage the hitting that was happening between her sons when they touched each other’s stuff.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Here’s what Maggie had to say.</p>
<h2>Everybody’s stuff vs special stuff</h2>
<p>“There are two sides to this. Firstly, we need to have in our home – and let me be clear, this is with girls as well – a very clear conversation about what is everybody’s stuff and what is special stuff,” says Maggie.</p>
<p>“Stuff in the special box stuff means that it goes up when other people come into the house. Let’s face it, no one likes having their special stuff touched.”</p>
<p>As for the hitting, Maggie says that when boys can’t communicate their feelings verbally, they will find&nbsp;another means to do so.&nbsp;</p>
<p>“Now, I need to tell you that if boys are not able to say ‘I love you’, they will want to be able to show you that ‘I love you,'” says Maggie.</p>
<p>“Sometimes that might mean a young boy might run out of daycare or his early childhood setting and plough straight into the legs of his Mum, and almost break them! This is his way of trying to show you, through his actions, just how much he’s missed you.”</p>

<div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/babyology/videos/521583004979586/" data-width="500" readability="12.574545454545 &lt;p&gt;Babyology Live Chat: Mothering Our BoysLIVE CHAT with parenting educator, Maggie Dent. We’re chatting about all things boys – raising them, loving them – to celebrate the launch of her brand new book, Mothering Our Boys.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Posted by Babyology on Thursday, 11 October 2018&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;/div&gt; &lt;h2&gt;Aggression nurturance&lt;/h2&gt; &lt;p&gt;Maggie says that this type of behaviour is called aggression nurturance. Basically, it’s when boys use what we may perceive as aggression to show their love or desire to connect with you.&nbsp;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“Sometimes we as Mums need to look away,” says Maggie.&nbsp;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“As long as we have had the conversation about trying not to hurt ourselves or anyone else, sometimes boys have this need to jump on each other and have a bit of a tackle.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“It ’s about them letting the little warrior inside them have a play and some fun, and sometimes this means jumping on each other.”&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This isn’t a concept mothers understand terribly well, says Maggie. And she realises that it can be a challenge to look at behaviour from a different angle. But she assures us that if we tune into our children beyond their aggression – we will find answers.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=" https:="" www.facebook.com="" abyology="" ideos="" 21583004979586="" alignnone="" size-large="" wp-image-317495"="" src="https://babyology.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/toddler-eating-600x313.jpg" alt="toddler eating" width="600" height="313"></div>
<p></p>
<h2>Setting loving boundaries</h2>
<p>Sometimes children don’t understand how to be gentle with their hands,&nbsp;or that their actions are hurting others.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Maggie’s advice in this situation is to hold the hand of the child who has hit someone and say, “No. That hurts”.</p>
<p>“But what we might then show him is, how about a high five instead? Because what your little boy is actually wanting, is connection and fun – he just needs your help to find a better alternative,” says Maggie.</p>
<p>“Because your little boy would never actually want to hurt you, so it’s up to you to give him another physical expression that won’t be quite as painful.”</p>
<p>Little boys don’t often know their strength or the right way to communicate verbally – so they need our help to come up with a more appropriate alternative. And this takes time and practice for it to be anchored.</p>
<p>As it turns out, our little boys have a lot more loving in them than we may realise at first glance – beyond all the rough-and-tumble. And what they need is a little patience, nurturing and understanding.</p>

Better outcomes in depression therapy with new innovati - 11 Apr 2019 08:19

Tags:

<p id="first Adolescents with depression who were treated with interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT-A) had significantly better outcomes when their therapists regularly assessed depression symptoms and augmented treatment for insufficient responders after four weeks of therapy rather than waiting until Week 8, reports a study published in the January 2019 issue of the &lt;em&gt;Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry&lt;/em&gt;&lt;em&gt; (JAACAP).&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;div id=" text"="" readability="83 &lt;p&gt;The authors also found that after four weeks of IPT-A, augmenting treatment for insufficient responders by increasing the frequency of therapy sessions to twice per week for a period of four weeks, or adding the antidepressant medication, fluoxetine, resulted in similar outcomes.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;" depression="" affects="" approximately="" 11="" percent="" of="" adolescents,="" and="" this="" represents="" a="" significant="" increase="" in="" prevalence="" over="" the="" past="" decade,"="" said="" lead="" author="" meredith="" gunlicks-stoessel,="" phd,="" assistant="" professor="" at="" department="" psychiatry="" &amp;="" behavioral="" sciences="" institute="" for="" translational="" research="" children's="" mental="" health="" university="" minnesota,="" minneapolis,="" mn,="" us.="" "this="" is="" particularly="" concerning="" given="" that="" psychotherapy="" youth="" has="" poorest="" outcomes="" all="" childhood="" psychiatric="" disorders.="" however,="" if="" therapists="" routinely="" assess="" symptoms="" course="" treatment="" intervene="" early,="" when="" indicated,="" to="" augment="" treatment,="" may="" improve="" outcomes."<=""> </p>
<p>The findings are based on a 16-week sequential multiple assignment randomized trial (SMART). In SMARTs, subjects can be randomized multiple times, and these randomizations occur sequentially at selected critical decision points.</p>
<p>Forty adolescents (age 12-17) who were diagnosed with a depressive disorder began treatment with an initial treatment plan of 12 IPT-A sessions. Adolescents were randomized to reassess their treatment response at either Week 4 or Week 8. Adolescents who were classified as insufficient responders, based on criteria developed from data from a previous trial of IPT-A (&lt; 20 percent reduction in depression symptoms at Week 4 or &lt; 40 percent reduction in symptoms at Week 8) were randomized a second time to the addition of fluoxetine. An additional four IPT-A sessions were also delivered twice per week. Adolescents who were classified as sufficient responders continued with the original treatment plan of 12 sessions of IPT-A.</p>
<p>The researchers found that the earlier time point for assessing and identifying potentially insufficient responders (Week 4), was more successful in reducing adolescents' depression symptoms than the later time point (Week 8), based upon the Children's Depression Rating Scale-Revised [CDRS-R] (34.94 &plusmn; 2.05 versus 40.65 &plusmn; 2.05).</p>
<p>Dr. Gunlicks-Stoessel and her co-authors also found that among insufficient responders identified at Week 4, increasing the frequency of therapy sessions to twice per week for a period of four weeks resulted in similar outcomes compared to adding fluoxetine (CDRS-R 33.33 &plusmn;2.09 versus 36.11&plusmn;1.97).</p>

Bread and Body Fluids: I’d Come Up With a Less Gross Ti - 07 Apr 2019 23:28

Tags:

<p>Took my kid to the orthodontist this morning.</p>
<p>He had to have brace wires removed so I could take him to the dentist to get four teeth pulled.</p>
<p>Spilled my coffee.</p>
<p>All 20 ounces. All over the floor of the orthodontist’s office. I put it on the floor, then immediately kicked it over. I hadn’t had coffee yet, so I couldn’t clearly think through coffee placement. It’s a Catch 22, I tell you, this whole Had to Perform Coffee Tasks Before Having Coffee situation. It’s not right. We live in a broken world, friends.</p>
<p>Went to the dentist.</p>
<p>Handed over an 11yo for medieval torture.</p>
<p>I lied and lied and told him it would be fine. “You’ll be FINE. Walk in the park. No big deal, man.” I didn’t feel like the truth was particularly helpful in this case. Like, “YES, IT WILL BE AWFUL. Hopefully not for long, though. Hopefully, there will be less than 30 minutes while the dentist widens your bone socket, slowly rips your ligaments, and wrenches your tooth free. FOUR TIMES.” &lt;— I didn’t say that. Not even with my eyes. I expect a trophy later, please.</p>
<p>Kid did fine.</p>
<p>He thought it was no big deal, just as I said. This is what we parents call Positive Reinforcement for Lying. They say we cling to our dysfunctions because, on some level, they function for us, yes? Thus continues the cycle of falsehood and deceit. As my parents lied to me — “we’re not <i>lost, </i>Beth; we’re just having an <i>adventure</i>” — so I lie to my children. It’s important to have family traditions.</p>
<p>Home now.</p>
<p>I have one child leaking gauze and bloody spittle while playing Fortnite on the couch, one child vomiting in the hall bathroom because blood freaks him out, and one girl child standing in the backyard yelling, “TELL ME WHEN THE BLOOD AND VOMIT ARE GONE. I AM <b>NOT </b>COMING HOME UNTIL THEY ARE DONE. BROTHERS ARE DISGUSTING AND GROSS AND SICKENING <i>[note: we’ve been working on synonyms, so is was a win — I shall be accepting a trophy&nbsp;for this tonight, as well],</i> AND THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE ME ANTOHER SISTER, MOM.”&nbsp;</p>
<p>In conclusion, I live a life of glamour.&nbsp;</p>
<p>That is all for now.</p>
<p>Just a quick update.</p>
<p>Also, bread photos below because they’re prettier than bloody mouth pics.&nbsp;</p>
<p>With love (and waving, as always),</p>

<p>Know what that is? Besides bread? It’s No Knead Bread. target=&quot;_blank&quot; rel=&quot;noopener The famous New York Times recipe. It requires thinking a day in advance, which isn’t always my strong-suit as a mama, but it only takes 10 minutes of hands-on time TOTAL, and I DO love that.</p>
<p>And here’s a tip in case you’re having an insane, make-everything-from-scratch phase&nbsp;like yours truly: save the whey from yogurt or cheese making, and use it in place of water in the bread recipe.</p>

Maggie Dent: 3 ways mums can get little boys to listen - 04 Apr 2019 23:31

Tags:

<p>Many mothers often feel as though they are continually asking their&nbsp;little boys to listen, or telling them they can’t do things. It’s a constant battle that can be very frustrating for both mums and their sons.</p>
<p>If this sounds like you, author, parenting educator and mother of four sons herself, Maggie Dent has a few handy tips that may really help you to feel more connected to your son.&nbsp;</p>
<hr />
<p><strong>Read more about raising boys:</strong></p>
<hr />
<p>Here are three tips Maggie has for communicating effectively with boys.&nbsp;</p>
<h2>1. Touch</h2>
<p>According to Maggie, women can be in all sorts of rooms in our head all at the same time. For example, we can be chopping up food and giving out orders. But when it comes to little boys – well, they just aren’t wired this way.&nbsp;</p>
<p>“Little boys (and some men) tend to have a single focus. This means they pay attention only to what is happening at that moment,” says Maggie.&nbsp;</p>
<p>“So for example if you have a son who is watching telly as you are getting dinner ready and then you call him to come and eat, you don’t get a reaction. But because we are wise women, we think that he’s ignoring us deliberately so we may yell at him. Then, of course, that little boy thinks to himself ‘why is the woman I love more than anything yelling at me?’.</p>
<p>“What is actually happening here is he didn’t know you were talking to him in the first place.”</p>
<p>Clearly, frustration has a lot to do with communication – or miscommunication, rather. So where does that leave the mums of little boys and how can they communicate in a&nbsp;way their son will hear them?</p>
<p>Maggie says it’s as simple as giving him a tickle.</p>
<p>“Go up to your son, give him a little tickle and tell him dinner will be ready in five minutes. This gives him the chance to process your request,” she says.</p>
<div class="fb-xfbml-parse-ignore" data-href="https://www.facebook.com/babyology/videos/521583004979586/" data-width="500" readability="12.574545454545 &lt;p&gt;Babyology Live Chat: Mothering Our BoysLIVE CHAT with parenting educator, Maggie Dent. We’re chatting about all things boys – raising them, loving them – to celebrate the launch of her brand new book, Mothering Our Boys.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Posted by Babyology on Thursday, 11 October 2018&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;/div&gt; &lt;h2&gt;2. Use fewer words&lt;/h2&gt; &lt;p&gt;When it comes to communicating with our sons, Maggie says less is more.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“Women love words and what the research is showing us is that boys take a little longer with their words,” she says.&nbsp;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“Little boys don’t have a lot of words about their feelings or what is going on, and this is the case especially when we want them to talk &lt;em&gt;right now.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“Boys often take a lot longer to think about what might have been a difficult moment than we would, and so often mothers are left wondering why they don’t want to talk to us about it when we ask.”&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;So what is the solution? Put simply: give boys time. Maggie recommends waiting to talk a little later when they’re relaxing and in a more settled space. Or as she suggests, “After he’s taken his armour off.” This could be after bath time or around bedtime.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;The trick with getting boys to cooperate is to use fewer words.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;“If you want your son to get his hat on his head, don’t use big long sentences. Simply say, ‘David … hat … head.'”&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Keep it short, sweet and to the point.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;img class=" https:="" www.facebook.com="" abyology="" ideos="" 21583004979586="" alignnone="" size-large="" wp-image-309225"="" src="https://babyology.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/raising-boys-600x313.jpg" alt="Toddler boy" width="600" height="313"></div>
<p></p>
<h2>3. Show</h2>
<p>Finally, Maggie recommends using actions to illustrate to our sons what they need to do.</p>
<p>“If you want your son to put his bottom on his seat, don’t wait till you have to ask him the third time.</p>
<p>“What I suggest is going up and scooping him from behind, putting his bottom on the seat and kiss him on his forehead. <em>Show him</em> what you need him to do rather than always just <em>telling him</em>,” says Maggie.</p>
<p>At the end of the day, Maggie says it’s about realising the language and communication style for little boys is different from women or little girls.</p>
<p>“Remember just to touch your son, give him a stroke, even if you’re growling at him – so he knows that even when you’re growling and a bit grumpy – you still love him,” she says.</p>
<p>“It’s all about soft, gentle connection. This way works so much better.”</p>
