· Kids Under Stress
Special thanks to Jessica O'Malley and Michele Gara Grady from ECHN's Family Development Center! Their presentation and information on the Robyn's Nest "Kids Under Stress Show" was not only informative, but also delightfully entertaining! Also, we were very lucky to have Tom Forschner, founder of the Lyme Disease Foundation on the "Kids, Ticks and Lyme Disease Show", who taught us not only ways to protect our children from Lyme disease, but also showed us how to safely remove a tick. A must see for anyone who enjoys the outdoors!
Kids Under Stress - Some stress is normal. It's something everyone has to deal with and it helps children develop coping skills. Stress becomes a problem when it prevents daily activities or routines. Are your children under excessive stress? We've listed some terrific information to help you determine just that. http://www.robynsnest.com/stresskids.htm
Strategies for Dealing with Stress - Ok, you've determined that your family is a bit wired. Who isn't? It is the 2001. We are all moving at the speed of light. Perhaps the kids are a bit stressed. It's time for some 'stress busters'! http://www.robynsnest.com/stressstrat.htm
Ticks, Kids and Lyme Disease - We've said it before, and we'll say it again. Protect yourselves and your kids from those pesky ticks this spring/summer. Lyme disease and other tick borne ailments are no joke. We've updated our Lyme Disease article with the help of the Lyme Disease Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization here in Hartford. See our links section for contact information. http://www.robynsnest.com/lyme.htm
Removing a Tick Safely - You should hear some of the old ways people removed ticks! Kerosene, nail polish, even cigarettes! Thankfully, removing a tick safely is not that complicated. We've outlined the complete instructions with the help of the Lyme Disease Foundation. This is a print and keep document, folks! http://www.robynsnest.com/tickremove.htm

You Never Know What's Hanging on "The Fridge Door" - If you've been with us a while, the fridge door is a feature you may have seen before. We've decided to redesign it and bring back in a whole new way. Every so often we will add new features we feel may be of interest to you and hang these items on the fridge door. So…check back often because, you never know what's hanging on the fridge door. http://www.robynsnest.com/Fridgedoorpg.htm
