Using a Tough Parental Love to Teach Your Kids

A teen could be considered to be the final product of your parenting skills since it proves that you have worked your way through the process. You, you are most likely a professional once your child reaches this stage. You will discover that these active four years of their life will go by very quickly. All parents have to deal with important decisions such as career and college choices for their children. Of course it just depends on everyone’s personality and the family dynamics. But, some teens find it difficult when it comes to leaving the nest.

None of us can forget our last year of high school because we could finally see just a taste of freedom. Then in a flash, it seemed like our final year with all of our friends disappeared. So, you know exactly how they will feel and what they will encounter. These are the times when you offer what you can in terms of supportive advice and perhaps just listening and being there. No matter the amount of times it must be given, positive encouragement will always be appreciated. Just monitor how well your child deals with everything when it comes to high school ending and their leaving the nest. Then continue to use your parenting skills in the best way that you know how. We know that you will handle everything okay.

Personally, I have always thought that it was not fair to make a seventeen or eighteen year make decisions at this time when they are so inexperienced. Yes, those lovely times of “thinking” what they want to do for a career. In this day and time, there are so many options that are available to them. But as responsible parents, it is our duty to ensure that the right kind of information is provided to them. It is within their reach. Then make it a point to talk to and work with your child. Be supportive, but make it known that this is their life that that they are living. If you want to get more info and see what other parents are talking about check out this mom and dad blog website to see many great mom and dad blogs. Or an individual funny dad blog like MyRadDad… it’s pretty funny. You can reach out and see what other parents are talking about. It is a great resource so check it out.

You have the chance to give your teenagers more tough love by supplying them with more things around the house to do. Of course, we are talking about the tween and teenage years. Chances are that both parents are working outside the home and single parents have to resort to this to get help around the house. But we suggest this because it will help them learn they need to help the home team. Yes, that is right – the home team. You should explain exactly why you are doing this and what you want them to learn about it. People are more willing to do things if they know what they are doing and why they are doing them.

Successful parenting involves giving your child the necessary tools to handle the outside world. We cannot fight all their battles, and we should not. That is why a child with a healthy mindset can intelligently learn to deal with what comes down the line.

Using Google For Your Business Blog

Using Google for your business blog is a great way of adding value to your website. Most businesses don’t like the idea of spending $3,000-$5,000 on a website that won’t get seen much or even used much. Most local business owners have no idea the power and value of owning a blog for their business.

So where does a local business get a blog?

Google makes it easy for a business to start their own website and it doesn’t cost the business any money! Can’t get better than that! Local business owners may find that having a blog with Google makes them look more professional and gives them authority with their local customers.

Where can a local business get a blog?

Both of blogger and wordpress are great platforms for a business to start. Blogger offers a completely free service where the business owner can build a website using blogger and never needing to pay for hosting or domain fee.

WordPress also offers a free service but there are also thousands of templates one can buy and create a unique design for their business. Using wordpress will cost money with hosting and with having to buy a domain name.

A great example of a business using the blogger platform is Water Damage Seattle, a local business in Seattle Washington who is taking advantage of the free platform offered by Google. You will notice the URL of the website is .blogspot – This is the same platform of blogger dot com.

There are many advantages of using a platform like Blogger which we stated above but another advantage is how easy it is for Google to rank their own blogs. Maybe Google trust their own platforms over other websites that are created with other programs and maybe Google knows their themes are well designed and will not pose a threat to their searchers.

Whatever your choice, be sure to check out the free blogging platforms to get your local business online!

What is an seo web marketing specialist?

Question by blah: What is an seo web marketing specialist?
I am looking for a job, and a place is hiring for this. The job description says i would manage website marketing, like search engine oprimization, internet video, blogging, and other things. Also to use traffic tracking apps to recognice patterns and trends to get effective marketing techniques. I would do this freelance since i am 17 and still in school
So what exactly do you do? also it wants examples, so would i need a degree?? and what would examples be?

Best answer:

Answer by Jane
Search Engine Optimization – Optimize the website for search engines. Make sure the search engines find all pages on the site you want found, make sure they rank for target keyword phrases and get visitors and these visitors take some desired action (buy product, fill form, download file, etc.)

Traffic tracking apps – These tools help you know the number of visitors, how they arrived at the site, what search terms they used if they arrived via search engines. They also let you know the most viewed pages and the number of conversions (desired actions).

Video submissions and blogging – Promoting the website using these media.

You don’t need a degree for this as much as you need experience. You will more likely need to show earlier work done if it is for someone with experience. If it is a position for a new starter, then a degree may help.

What do you think? Answer below!
