Parents Can Help Prevent Teen Pregnancy - We have a list of 10 Tips for Parents to help them help their teens to avoid teen pregnancy. Although these tips are for parents, they can be used by adults more generally in their relationships with teenagers. This article was a real "eye opener" for me.
10 Things Teens Want Parents to Know - You may be surprised to learn that young people do want to hear from parents and other adults about sex, love, and relationships. They say they appreciate - even crave - advice, direction, and support from adults who care about them. But sometimes, they suggest, adults need to change how they offer their guidance. Simply put, they want real communication, not lectures and not threats.
Safe Havens for Babies means Choices for Mothers - So far 35 states have developed some form of Safe Haven Law that protects a parent from prosecution for relinquishing their baby. While still new, these laws are intended to reduce the number of infants abandoned and left to perish in a dumpster, trashcan, toilet or other unspeakable location. Find out if your state has such a law and how you can help get the word out to prevent these needless tragedies.
Air Travel During Pregnancy - Most US airlines allow pregnant women to fly up to 36 weeks gestation on domestic flights. For international flights, 35 weeks gestation is usually the limit. While travel in an airplane is almost always safe during pregnancy, this article does address some instances in which air travel should be avoided.
Hard Word - Muscle Word List - As promised, Robyn's Nest is beginning expansion into the older age groups. This muscle word list is directed to children ages 7-9.
