When Your Wee One Goes Wee Wee Well

Written by Anita Chaperon

After reading several books about potty training (my son was a little tyke pre-Internet) and having little success, I found some helpful information tucked way inrepparttar back of a woman's magazine's classified section.

"Anatomically correct dolls - order yours today" it said. The ad explained that this was a great way to teach potty training to your young 'un. Withrepparttar 147216 doll came a little pamphlet on how to potty train.

Here is what I did, and did it work!

I ordered my son an anatomically correct boy doll. It arrived with a baby bottle as well. I explained to my going-on-two child that he had to feed his baby its bottle but that his baby would need to go potty soon afterwards. I showed him how to putrepparttar 147217 potty chair inrepparttar 147218 toilet bowl for dolly to pee, and how to empty it inrepparttar 147219 toilet bowl and flush afterwards.

The first few baby doll feeding times resulted in wet surroundings asrepparttar 147220 doll urinated before my son made his way, doll in hand, torepparttar 147221 toilet bowl. But then he got wise. I'd hear him talking to his baby. "Let's go wee wee," he'd say, and scurry torepparttar 147222 toilet, proprepparttar 147223 doll in front ofrepparttar 147224 potty, watch him urinate, emptyrepparttar 147225 potty and then flush.

One week later there was my very own toddler, standing in front ofrepparttar 147226 toilet bowl and urinating.

Success! And I'd hardly had to do anything at all.

Now I hear that this isrepparttar 147227 method recommended by Dr. Phil. He suggests as well that whenrepparttar 147228 dolly goes potty successfullyrepparttar 147229 very first time you and your child should throw dolly a "potty party" with boisterous noise makers and anything else fun and rambunctious you can think of. Of course, whenrepparttar 147230 doll's potty success is followed by your child's potty success your little one would get a potty party too.

Students Worldwide Are Learning How To Excel In School From Home

Written by David Rolle'

Today, children are expected to earn high grades in all of their classes, in spite ofrepparttar failing public school system. Parents can still remember when an education was essential in preparing children for their livelihood.

Now what many public school systems offer is overcrowded classrooms. Teachers are being grossly underpaid for their skills and overworked. Outdated learning material, metal detectors, violence, cuts in federal spending for education...

Remedial help is sorely needed for some students so they can keep up. If a child can't receiverepparttar 147168 education they deserve, how are they expected to prosper in society? Parents, students, andrepparttar 147169 public school systems already know that this is a hugh problem, but who can they turn to for help?

More and more parents are turning to tutoring to supplement their children's education and to further their children's abilities to be successful inrepparttar 147170 future.

Tutoring is a $4 Billion business that is growing steadily. Underrepparttar 147171 No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, supplemental educational services are funded by school districts with a portion of their allocation fromrepparttar 147172 U.S. Department of Education.

The Federal Government allocates as much as $1800 per eligible student, but so far, less than 10 percent of eligible students are electing to participate, according to providers' estimates.

One ofrepparttar 147173 toughest challenges is simply convincing parents thatrepparttar 147174 service is free to them. Parents will often hang up when sales reps for tutoring firms call to explainrepparttar 147175 program.

They think it is a scam because "free" usually means too good to be true. And sometimes parents simply don't want to acknowledge that their child needs help. Parents have been known to ask "What's wrong with my child that he needs to be tutored?"
