Wonder Weeks là gì? Biểu hiện chung của wonder weeks

Thuật ngữ Wonder Weeks có thể đã trở nên quen thuộc với nhiều bậc cha mẹ. Tuy nhiên, cũng không ít người bối rối khi thấy con mình trở nên khó chịu bất thường. Những thông tin về Wonder Weeks hay biểu hiện của trẻ khi bước vào khoảng thời gian này sẽ giúp cha mẹ thấu hiểu con yêu hơn.

1. Lịch sử của Wonder Weeks


Năm 1992, hai nhà nghiên cứu về tâm lý giáo dục, sinh học hành vi người Hà Lan là tiến sĩ Frans X. Plooij và vợ của ông là tiến sĩ Hetty van de Rijt đã xuất bản một cuốn sách có tựa đề Wonder Weeks. Cuốn sách của họ là một tập hợp thông tin về cách trẻ sơ sinh phát triển và những gì cha mẹ có thể làm để hỗ trợ con trong từng giai đoạn.

Từ sự phổ biến của cuốn sách Wonder Weeks, thuật ngữ này đã được sử dụng với tần suất nhiều hơn. Nhiều bậc cha mẹ đã tìm kiếm trong cuốn sách Wonder weeks để hiểu rõ hơn lý do tại sao em bé của họ cư xử khác nhau giữa những giai đoạn phát triển.


2. Wonder Weeks chính xác là gì?


Wonder weeks là một thuật ngữ dùng để mô tả các giai đoạn phát triển mạnh mẽ của trẻ sơ sinh. Có những giai đoạn cao điểm khi mà bé phát triển nhanh chóng về cả thể chất và tinh thần. Ngược lại, có những khoảng thời gian bố mẹ không cảm nhận thấy con mình thay đổi nhiều. Sự tiến bộ vượt bậc này có thể nhận thấy qua các kĩ năng như học ngồi, học bò, cố gắng đứng vững và sau đó là tập đi.

Một số nghiên cứu đã chỉ ra rằng những thay đổi tinh thần rõ ràng thường xảy ra trong não của trẻ dưới 20 tháng tuổi. Sau khoảng thời gian này, sự thay đổi tính cách và thể chất tiếp tục lớn hơn và phát triển hơn trước nữa để trẻ bước sang giai đoạn trưởng thành.

3. Khi nào là Wonder Weeks?


Thời gian bước vào Wonder weeks thường phụ thuộc vào từng bé. Có tất cả các yếu tố ảnh hưởng đến sự phát triển của trẻ sơ sinh như di truyền, môi trường, giới tính, sinh non, anh chị em,...

Nhưng thời gian trung bình được dự đoán là Wonder Weeks thường xảy ra:
5 tuần
8 tuần
12 tuần
17 tuần
26 tuần
36 tuần
44 tuần
53 tuần

Bên cạnh Wonder weeks thì đi kèm theo là thuật ngữ “ Sunny weeks” hay còn gọi là nắng tuần. Đây là những tuần sau khi một em bé tiến bộ qua Wonder weeks và bước vào một giai đoạn phát triển hoàn toàn mới.

Bố mẹ có thể cảm thấy bé có vẻ thấy hạnh phúc hơn nhiều, chăm chỉ để học các kỹ năng mới và muốn cho thế giới thấy mình thông minh như thế nào. Trong những tuần nắng, các bé thường sẽ ngủ và bú tốt hơn, sẵn sàng khám phá và ít bám víu hơn.

Cũng giống như Wonder Weeks, Sunny Weeks thay đổi tùy theo từng bé. Những thống kê trung bình sẽ vào khoảng:

6 tuần
10 tuần
13 tuần
21 tuần
31 tuần
39 tuần
49 tuần
58 tuần

4. Biểu hiện của Wonder week


Bố mẹ có thể dự đoán con của mình đang bước vào thời gian Wonder weeks với một số biểu hiện sau:

Quấy khóc cả ngày.
Đang ngủ ngon dậy khóc, càng dỗ càng khóc to và dường như không có cách gì để bé ngừng khóc.
Chán ăn, bỏ ăn, ăn ít (trước đó đang ăn rất tốt).
Đòi bế cả ngày, bám mẹ nhiều hơn.
Nhút nhát hơn, sợ người lạ.
Ghen tị.
Thay đổi tâm trạng nhanh chóng, đang vui có thể ngay lập tức khóc, đang khóc trở nên vui luôn.
Mút tay nhiều, thích ôm ấp một món đồ quen thuộc nhiều hơn.

5. Bạn nên làm gì trong Wonder weeks của trẻ?


Đầu tiên, Wonder Weeks có thể làm các bậc cha mẹ thấy căng thẳng và mệt mỏi. Do vậy, chính bạn cần phải giữ sức khỏe và tinh thần tốt để chăm sóc tốt nhất cho bé.

Bạn cần hiểu rằng bé quấy khóc không phải là một trạng thái vĩnh viễn. Hoặc dấu hiệu đòi bế, bám mẹ nhiều nhơn là thể hiện sự thiếu an toàn trong quá trình thay đổi tinh thần của bé. Do vậy, hãy ôm ấp và trấn an em bé của bạn sẽ giúp con cảm thấy tốt hơn. Bố mẹ cũng nên dành nhiều thời gian ở bên con trong thời gian này.

Các bậc cha mẹ có thể nhận thấy sự thay đổi trong thói quen ăn uống và ngủ của bé. Bạn có thể thay đổi thực đơn để con cảm thấy ngon miệng và dễ chịu hơn.

6. Nguyên nhân khác ảnh hưởng hành vi của trẻ ngoài Wonder weeks


Không chỉ trong thời gian Wonder weeks, em bé của bạn có thể quấy khóc vì một số nguyên nhân sau:

Bé không khỏe: Ốm đau, nhiệt độ tăng cao, cảm lạnh đều là những nguyên nhân làm trẻ khó chịu và quấy khóc.
Thay đổi môi trường: Chuyển nhà hoặc căng thẳng trong gia đình đều có thể là nguyên nhân thay đổi hành vi của trẻ sơ sinh.
Mọc răng
Thay đổi trong giấc ngủ: sự mệt mỏi, chuyển nơi ngủ từ cũi sang giường cũng có thể gây ra khó chịu cho trẻ.
Em bé của bạn có thể thuộc nhóm nhạy cảm ơn những đứa trẻ khác nên chỉ cần những dấu hiệu nhỏ cũng làm ảnh hưởng đến tinh thần.

Nếu bạn thật sự đang lo lắng về em bé của mình, hãy liên hệ với chuyên gia chăm sóc sức khỏe để kiểm tra tình trạng của con.

How to respond to kids behavior when they ‘act out’
Here are some tips on how to better understand your kid's behavior and less-than-great moments. 1. They’re hungry Most of us can relate to the feeling of irritability that comes with low blood sugar. As with many adults, when a kid gets hungry, he may not even notice it, but automatically becomes crabby and starts grabbing toys from his little sister. What to say: “Whoa! I can see we’ve run out of fuel. Grabbing toys isn’t respectful. Come, let’s return this doll to Celine and you and I will go grab some lunch. What do you fancy? Rice or pasta?” 2. They’re tired Show me the parent who doesn’t totally get this one. When kids are sleep-deprived or due for a nap, disintegration happens fast. So rather than sweetly saying: “Please Mummy, may I have a rest?” your daughter flings her bowl across the room. What to say: “You’re showing me how exhausted you are! And I hear you! I’m putting the bowl in the sink and we’ll go straight to our room for a rest, my love.” 3. They need to pee This one gets overlooked. But when (potty independent) children need to pee they often hold it in and become increasingly flustered. If little Jose suddenly bursts at you with an obnoxious tone saying, “You’re not the boss of me,” his stressed bladder may be to blame. What to say: “Let’s take a bathroom break and then we’ll talk about this!” 4. They’re worried about something If your child is harboring a concern about an upcoming transition—such as moving houses, a new baby on the way, a new school, a new job, a new babysitter, or a sick grandparent—they likely will not have the words to express that in a healthy way. Rather, they’ll begin to refuse the meals you prepare, to hurt other children, or to break down in tantrums at Every. Little. Thing. This is their way of trying to gain some control over their lives. When you have an inkling as to what the worry is, pick a calm and connected moment, such as bedtime or a long drive, and address it head-on. Be sure, to be honest, but also optimistic and empowering. Don't dismiss their worries, but help talk about what might happen and what they can do about it. What to say: “Hey, my love. I can see you’re feeling really worried about something. Perhaps it’s about the new baby that’s on the way? Are you worried that I won’t have as much time for you once the baby arrives?” 5. They’re afraid of something Most children experience normal childhood fears such as fear of the dark, monsters, or robbers. While they may be normal, they can also be deeply inhibiting and can set them on edge throughout the day. Rather than remaining calm and regulated, your child might act out with anger. Helping him find coping mechanisms to gradually face these fears is key in helping children overcome their fear and not be controlled by it. Validate their fears but still hold the expectation for them to overcome them, with support. What to say: “I do not like being yelled at. I can see you’re feeling pretty angry right now. Has this got something to do with the questions you were asking me about robbers before? I know there are none, and I want you to feel sure, too. Would you like for us to go through the house with a flashlight so you can feel satisfied there are no robbers here?” 6. They’ve been influenced by something If children are watching violent TV shows or have neighbors, friends, or cousins who are wild, destructive, or disrespectful—they may well try on this behavior. We all unwittingly, imitate what we see around us. When I’ve watched too much Downton Abbey, for example, my accent skews far posher than usual. So if your neighbor has been reciting a foul-mouthed rap song to your daughter this morning in the yard, you can expect some of that to come through. What to say: “Hmmm, using those words is not how we speak in our home. I know you might hear other people using that language but being respectful is very important to our family.” 7. They’re mirroring you I know this one bites. But when we’ve been losing our cool, yelling, punishing, threatening, it’s safe to assume our children will mirror that behavior right back at us. So when my son says: “How dare you?” it’s nothing short of hypocritical of me to shoot him down with, “You will not speak to your mother that way,” because clearly, he got it from me. What to say: “I know I’ve been yelling and raising my voice. I’m sorry. It’s important that we all speak kindly and gently to each other, including me. Can we start over?” 8. They’re angry Perhaps she’s angry you didn’t let her finish her game this morning, or that you forgot to dry her pink tutu in time for her playdate, or that you said no to a final helping of ice cream, or that you co-sleep with the baby and not with her, or that her teacher didn’t give her a warm smile that day, or that her favorite doll’s leg broke… The point is, children have endless frustrations throughout their day—some of which are fleeting and others that are substantial. So when she purposely draws on your favorite cushion, she’s expressing just how angry she is. The key is to validate their anger and to empathize so as to allow them to move through the anger and reach the softer emotion beneath is: sadness or fear. Teach your child to express their anger through words, songs, painting… We love to sing the mad song (below) and eventually break into giggles. The healing comes when the angry feelings are expressed and allowed by you—even if the behavior is not. What to say: “Yikes. I know you know that cushions are not for drawing on. And I can see from your face how mad you are right now! Being mad is just fine, but ruining our furniture is not. Would you like to stamp your feet and sing a mad song? Let’s do it! Repeat after me! “I’m MAD MAD MAD! I want to be BAD BAD BAD! I feel so SAD SAD SAD! That makes me MAD MAD MAD!” 9. They’re frustrated When children hit developmental stages they haven’t quite mastered yet, they can feel deep frustration that they often need to act out. Consider the baby who’s trying to take their first steps and keeps falling. Or the toddler who desperately wants to feed herself but can’t manipulate her fingers just so yet. Or the preschooler who can’t write their name legibly despite their best efforts. Rather than politely saying, “I’m finding it difficult to master this skill which arouses deep frustration in me,” he swats his baby brother on the head. What to say: “I can’t let you hit! I’m going to hold your hands until you can use them safely… I know you’re so frustrated, my love. It’s so hard to try something so many times and not manage yet, right?” 10.  They’re sad It’s almost taboo for children to be sad, because culturally we like kids to be happy and to make those around them happy. But if a child experiences a loss or that’s their temperamental disposition, they may feel deep sadness. They may be sad about things we expect them to be happy about such as a new sibling or graduating kindergarten. So she drags her feet just when you’re rushing to get out the door. What to say: “Sweetheart, your face seems sad. I see that! Would you like to talk to me about it? We must leave the house right now, but we will have plenty of time for me to listen in the car. Let me help you with your shoes and let’s hold hands to the car, ok?” 11.  They’re curious Often what we perceive as acting out or not-so-good behavior is really just exploration. Children are infinitely curious and learn through hands on, sensory experience. They need to touch, climb, throw, push, pull, spin things. So if your son just dumped all of the clean, folded laundry down the stairs, that may be his misguided curiosity at play. What to say: “Oh no! That laundry is clean, so it’s not for throwing. I will put it on the bed next time. But I can see you want to throw things! Let me pass you this basket of teddy bears and you can throw away.” 12.  They didn’t know it’s not allowed Sometimes kids simply don’t realize something isn’t allowed. Even though it was painfully obvious to you (or perhaps because of this) you never made it clear to them. So if your daughter just sprayed shaving cream all over the bathroom, she may have thought this was your plan all along. Why else would you leave the shaving cream out? What to say: “Whoops! Shaving cream is not for playing with! Silly me. I should have left it in the cupboard. Next time please do not use this as a game. Let’s clean up. I’ll grab the mop. Do you want to spray or wipe?” 13.  They don’t understand the logic behind the limit Setting limits is important and sometimes kids do need to simply “do as we say” without further explanation. But those instances are rare. For the most part, we’ll garner far more collaboration (rather than blind obedience) when children understand our reasoning behind the limits. Sometimes if we’ve too often failed to provide the logic, children may be moved to rebel. If they feel the rules don’t make sense, they may go ahead and grab the chocolate despite your repeated assertions that are not allowed. What to say: “Sam, I was very clear in asking you not to eat this chocolate and I’m disappointed that you have anyway. The reason I asked you not to was that this is for a gift for Marcy, it was not for us! I should have explained that, but I do expect you to honor my requests even when you don’t understand them. We’ll have to go and buy some more chocolate to replace this one. Let’s get your money jar and you can contribute to the purchase.” 14.   They’re over-controlled In a home that’s run like a tight ship with a lot of control and fear-based parenting, many children will act out. Under the pressures of high expectations and low support, children begin to feel like there’s “nothing to lose.” They resent feeling controlled and scramble to find ways to exert their autonomy and sovereignty. That’s one reason she why she may sneak around, lie or rebel. Lying is a normal developmental stage in children around the age of 5, but it can also be the sign of too much parental control—such as if she’s afraid you’ll come down on her like a ton of bricks, so she doesn’t want to share the truth. What to say: “Honey, it seems you’ve lied to me. It’s really important that we have integrity and an honest, open relationship in our home. Were you afraid that I would be very angry or punish you if you were honest?” 15.  They’re confused about limits When we’ve been confused about a limit ourselves or unclear in setting them, children will push back and act out. They’ve received the message from us that this is a “free for all” or an “undefined territory” and is up for grabs. So if you sometimes let them use the iPad first thing in the morning and sometimes don’t, then you can expect them to try their luck. What to say: “I’m sorry, I can see the confusion here is my fault as I’ve been unclear about the rules about the iPad in the morning. Let’s have a family meeting and discuss when and how we use it and who’s responsible for charging it. We can all contribute ideas and agree on what to do when someone breaks these rules. Then we’ll all sign it and hang up the rules for all to see.” 16.  They’re agitated by something Many children have sensitivities that can go undetected but manifest in grumpy behavior. Food intolerances such as a sensitivity to dairy or gluten can lead to fussy, testy children who appear to be acting out. A child who is sensorily sensitive to labels in their shirt, tight socks or too much noise can be more likely to tantrum, shut down, make demands or yell rudely. What to say: “I can see you’re uncomfortable. Yelling like that hurst my ears. Can you help me figure out what’s bothering you? And then I can adjust it for you. Perhaps it’s too noisy in here? Let’s try going outside.” 17.  There’s inconsistency For most families a certain measure of predictability breeds security. And security helps children (us all) to regulate. If a child is picked up by a different adult each day, has dinner at a different time each day, has a bedtime at a different time each day—you get the picture—they’re likely to feel unsafe or unsure of what comes next. When limits are inconsistent, too, then they’re really not sure where they stand. So when she becomes impossible at bedtime, demanding yet another drink, book or trip to the bathroom, this may actually be a plea for more predictability in her life. What to say: “It’s really time to say goodnight now my love. We’re done with the books. Let’s talk about exactly what’s happening tomorrow, okay? In the morning you’ll wake up and then daddy will give you breakfast…” 18.  They’re over stressed Just like all people, if children are under too much stress they will absolutely act out or self damage, which is far worse. Unfortunately, today, children are under a lot of unnecessary stress to perform academically from the youngest of ages. Children need long stretches of uninterrupted, independent play every single day, they need time in nature and time to rest. If they’re not getting these de-stressors, and their every day is scheduled with goal-driven, measurable activities that are then evaluated by adults such as grades, then they’re probably under a lot of stress. It’s no wonder he’s obnoxiously slamming doors. What to say: “Can I come in? You just slammed that door pretty hard! I know you must be feeling very run down with all the homework you’ve got. Plus the game on Saturday. And piano practice. Still, please respect our home. You can always tell me when you’re stressed and I’ll get it. Hey, I have an idea, can we take this evening off? I’ll write you a note for your teacher. Let’s go play Monopoly.” 19.  They don’t have the words Especially in the early years, toddlers may simply not have the words we so desperately want for them to use. That’s why when parents yell for them to use their words, it usually falls on deaf ears. They can’t. Even if the appropriate words exist in their vocabulary, under the stress of the moment they can’t muster them. As the adults, we can help to find the appropriate words for them and model for them how they might be used. So if you’re child lashes out when a friend grabs a doll, use it as a language learning opportunity. What to say: “Uh oh! That hurt Kiley! I do not want you to hit. Are you trying to tell her you’re not done with the doll? Let’s check if she’s ok and then you can tell her, “I’m not done with the doll, Kiley… Hey, Kiley, are you ok?” 20.  They’re overstimulated Whether there’s too much noise, too many people, too many toys, too much novelty, light, excitement, attention, colors, sensations… an overload of stimulation can cause a really visceral reaction in anyone. So when you were so excited to take your 3-year-old to the fair, but they ended up tantruming through the entire thing because they wanted another ride on the Tea Cups, you can bet overstimulation is at the root. What to say: “I can see we’re feeling a bit overwhelmed! And there is a lot going on here! Come, let’s go over here to this quiet corner and sit down together for a few minutes. You can put your head on my shoulder and close your eyes. We’ll calm our bodies down together.” 21.  They’re trying to get a connection If we haven’t had much time for our little ones, they may be feeling cast aside or left behind. In a somewhat misplaced bid for connection, they may break something, yell or hurt someone. And it works for attention. But the fundamental thing to realize is that it’s not about attention, it’s about connection. They want our eye contact, our touch, our open hearts—not the stern look on our face telling them off. But if they can’t get the former, they’ll settle for the latter. What to say: “Hey! I think you might have run out of hugs… Can I fill you up? Do you know how I can tell? Because you called me “stupid.” That doesn’t feel good to me and it shows me you must be completely out of hugs. Come over here!” 22.  They’re questioning your leadership If you’re a shaky, unconfident leader in your family, you might experience increased limit-testing and pushback. So when you say it’s time to go, you might experience a lot of dawdling or even just outright ignoring. What to say: “I can see I didn’t make myself clear the first time. I do not like being ignored. We’re going. Shoes on, now, please!” 23.  They’re not sure what’s expected of them Sometimes your child might behave inappropriately simply because they don’t know what they’re supposed to be doing. Especially in a new situation, or with new people, they may shy away, or—conversely—become too loud and demand all of the spotlight. They may say things that appear rude or unseeingly, simply because no one’s ever told them that it’s impolite to point or that we don’t make comments about people’s bodies. What to say: “While we’re visiting Uncle Tom, we’re expected to talk in soft voices. Can you use a soft voice with me?” 24.  They want to be seen Acting out, ultimately, can be a bid for being seen, valued, and accepted as we are. It can be as though our child is saying, “Hey, Mum, will you love me when I do this?!” What to say: “I can see you’re trying to do the worst thing you can think of! But I will love you no matter what you do, you can’t escape my love.” When children act out it can be tempting to chalk it up to “bad behavior,” “demanding attention” or an “annoying mood.” But all kid's behavior is communication.

Top Baby Names For 2015
It's that time of year again when Nameberry releases the top baby names in the USA. Americans take naming their child so seriously so it's no wonder that thousands of new parents are scanning this list today. Names come and go in popularity rankings over the years but in the United States, naming a child is much more than just a cute name. It's a social statement. It not only has to have a certain vibe, but also a certain sound. Many parents pick names just based off the first letter so that their initials all match. Some kids have to have names that have letters to create an acronym : (CAT : Cathryn Alice Turner). Some must sound more sophisticated or appropriate for their state and economic/social background. Also, many new parents imagine what kind of careers would match certain names so that their kid will have an immediate sense of professionalism. Some parents like to mimic favorite tv or movie characters or name their kids after famous celebrities, athletes, or public figures. You can never name your kid something that is too hard to say but you don't want your kid to be the 7th Katie or Alex. Names today are picked based off of coolness factor and trying to prevent the possibility of your child being bullied. And OF COURSE everyone seems to be shocked when celebrities name their children intimate objects, directions, or colors such as Gwyneth Paltrow's Apple, Kim Kardashian's North, and Beyoncé's Blue Ivy.

What should I do if my baby wakes up early?
Many times when you’re in bed at 2 a.m, suddenly your baby squeaks. You’re already awake. Your baby’s sleep cycle (the full circuit from light to deep to light NREM sleep…plus a bit of REM) lasts only 60 minutes. So, about every hour, your baby will enter a light sleep…or even briefly wake up and make a short moan or squawk. If she’s not crying, give her a few moments to settle before placing her in the bassinet. If your princess still doesn’t go to bed at 1 a.m. or 3 a.m., then something may be bothering her. This could be a snoring parent or a passing truck. But hands down, your baby’s middle-of-the-night, the snooze-shattering disturbance is hunger. Increase daytime feedings if your baby wakes every hour During the early months, your little one may be in sleep —but your baby is definitely feeding! You literally fed her every second during the womb. It’s no wonder that newborn babies need frequent feeds to keep up their fast-paced growth.  In fact, mothers in some cultures actually nurse their babies 50-100 times a day! I’m not suggesting that to you, but breastfed newborns do need at least ten to twelve feedings a day. (Bottle-fed babies need 6-8.) It’s possible to get more than 2 hours of sleep in a row! Just feed your baby every 1.5-2 hours during the day, and wake him after 2 hours. This will help set up a rhythm of sleep that will last for a couple of months. What to do if you increase feedings and your baby still wakes every hour… The first thing to do if your baby is waking up too early, it’s important to check her sleep schedule to make sure that she gets enough sleep. You can gradually move her bedtime up by 10 minutes each night to see if it will help her stay asleep longer. It’s not an overnight success, though. Having a juggled sleep schedule can be dangerous, as it can prevent your baby from getting enough sleep. If it’s still not working, then talk to your doctor about it. It’s also important to avoid making changes that will disrupt her schedule. These reinforcements will help to trigger a calming reflex in your baby and encourage longer sleep sessions.

How to wash baby clothes?
As a first-time mom, you may wonder how to wash baby clothes, you likely started worrying about cleaning all those dainty mini clothes…Washing your newborn’s clothing isn’t as difficult as you might assume. Two pieces of advice for you : 1. Pick a fragrance-free detergent There are lots of brands of detergents in the supermarket, you should choose a fragrance-free one. Some babies can be sensitive to any kind of item with a smell. It may seem obvious, we’d better clean any type of brand-new garments before they are put on by your child. I have seen my friend’s baby who wore new clothing given by a member of the family, only to develop a rash after wearing it. By the way, any type of detergent in the house must be kept out of the reach of small fingers. 2. Baby clothes washed separately Plenty of parents clean their baby’s garments individually from the remainder of the home’s clothing. That is the right way. Why? Reasons as below: 1) Baby has delicate and super sensitive skin. And the baby-only detergent is more expensive than the normal one, it may be too lavish to wash everyone’s clothes together. 2) One of your family members may touch dangerous chemicals on the job. To avoid exposing your baby to an irritant accidentally, separating the clothing is the best way. 3)Some people love their clothes with a particular fragrance, so they may add fragrance enhancers to the washing clothing. That is too strong for your infant. 4)Normally, most newborn babies pee or spit up a lot, they use a lot of clothing throughout the day. Baby-only loads are necessary simply, as nobody dirties as many clothes as the infant. [See: Softest Toddler and Children Rompers

What If We Taught Students That Religion is Absurd?
We need to educate our children and teenagers to the point where they can think critically for themselves and can easily see and understand the absurdity of religion. The good news is that once someone’s brain is at this level of comprehension, a great many positive side effects occur. Life would be much better for everyone if everyone in our society is educated to the level where they understand that religion is absurd. The religiosity of America fascinates me. I am intrigued by the idea of millions of people in an advanced nation believing that they have a “relationship” with an imaginary friend and believing that this imaginary friend is answering their prayers.  In the United States, something like 76% of the population believes in God, and seventy percent of the population identifies as Christian. Three-quarters of the U.S. population believes that the Bible was at least inspired by God, and 28% (more than 89 million people) believe the stories in it are literally true. Why would anyone today believe that the Christian god is real or that the story of Noah’s ark is true? My goal here is to advocate that we, as a society, start an active campaign to make religion irrelevant to human civilization. In the same way that there have been active campaigns to eliminate diseases like smallpox and polio, we should start a similar campaign against religion.  The tool I propose for religion’s elimination is across-the-board education in critical thinking. But first, let’s step back for a moment and ask, How do we find ourselves in this position as a species? There are many interesting things that human beings do. Music, math, tools, cooking, science, engineering, art, and language all come to mind. But religion ranks up there as perhaps the most interesting.  Religion stands out because it is so irrational and bizarre. Billions of people on this planet believe in their various imaginary beings so firmly that disagreements about religion often escalate to violence and warfare.  Read the full story: https://www.fadewblogs.eu.org/2021/11/teaching-about-religion-in-school.html  
Clean School Shoes Stink? It’s Enough to Read This One
If you’re already planning on sending your kids to school in a uniform that’s neatly-pressed, then it’s a must that they have clean school shoes. Your child’s first pair of shoes can be a bit of a chore. They can get sticky and muddy, especially if they get wet. Want to know how to clean them up? Follow these simple methods. How to clean school shoes? Soak You can take those kids’ Crocs and jellies and hose them down outside, but for sneakers, a good old soak in a bucket of water can remove caked-on mud and clean the shoes well. A good old soak in a bucket full of water can help remove mud and dirt from shoes. Change the water regularly and use an old toothbrush or rag to remove the remaining residue. Use A Cleaning Agent  Enlist the help of a kid-friendly stain-fighting tool to remove tougher stains (grass, blood, and other bodily fluids). Mix baking soda and water in a spray bottle and apply to stains. Let sit for a few minutes, then rinse well. Try the Magic Eraser&Toothpaste That magical eraser you use all over your house also does a pretty great job of cleaning rubber soles. A good scrub can remove dirt, oil, and other harmful substances from shoes. It can also freshen them up and make them look new. Enlist The Help of your Washing Machine Most sneakers and canvas shoes (like those oh-so-cute little Toms) are safe to throw directly in the washing machine. Since a clothes dryer can cause shrinking, try not to use it. Instead, air-dry inside or over a vent. If you’re afraid of fading, then you want to avoid direct sunlight. Need some additional odor control? A little baking soda in the wash cycle or sprinkled on those wet shoes should help. Dry them with Paper / Towels Wet school shoes are more common than we care to think about. Especially at this time of year and of course, the kids find ALL the puddles! The best way to dry out wet leather school shoes is to place balls of newspaper into the shoe. This product will keep the shoes in place while also drawing out moisture. However, it can also cause the shoes to become too dry and crack. Fix Promptly There is nothing worse than school shoes that look ratty. To extend the life of your shoes, glue them back on as soon as they become damaged. They can also be repaired by fixing the shoes’ buckles and Velcro straps. Plus: To keep canvas shoes clean, coat them with a clear/white candle and melt the wax into them using a hairdryer. Always be sure to check that the canvas is cotton not synthetic before heating.
