Soldiers of Prosperity

Unified Mastermind

Forget big brother. He no longer cares.

Once upon a time, you spent $25,000 to $100,000 and went to college to learn and to be trained on how to be employed. Then you signed on the dotted line, slung the chain with your ID card pinched to it around your neck, your new employer trained you, nurtured you, paid for your car and your babies being born and they then showed you a ladder leaning up against the wall and cried, “go climb!”

As long as you didn’t drop the ball and make too many mistakes, you were safe and you could retire in glory. You didn’t have to worry about your career and the notion of having numerous transitional career changes, back then—would have sounded like a bad joke.

Remembering IBM

Back in the day, the company would take care of you, justice and hard work would prevail and loyalty—-going both ways—were the highest of corporate values.

That was yesterday. No, erase that. That was a generation ago!

In today’s business climate all we have— is each other.

Literally. It’s us buzz mates against big business. Now the network rules (yours) and intangibles like your network, your reputation and how well you can serve others, within your own network, is the commodity of the new economy and the Soldiers of Prosperity who champion this crusade of capitalists to other fringe dwellers.

It’s about being unified, “as one,” not separatists, working alone, next to each other, in office cubicles, for the greater good of the boss.

Did the business climate change? Huh buddy, you bet it did.

In today’s world of intense competition, restructuring, and corporate takeovers, lets not even go into the splats and “tanks” so many of the behemoths are experiencing.

Ever hear of World/Com or Toys-R-Us? What happened?

The key today is THE NETWORK! Not the corporation.

It Used To Be About Who You Knew
Today, It’s More About Who Did You Help

The key today and the new commodity is everyone’s own individual network, a network of capital, a network of trust and integrity and a network of cohesive profit margins—working for the good of all, equally, for the strong, who demand to be THE FOOD CHAIN instead of the paid pencil pusher.

You are either the hunter or the hunted. People who provide the most food always eat the best, right? But it’s a decision. Therefore the mandate leads towards unification, not DIFFERENT “levels’ of potential income.

—Side Bar—
Did you ever notice on in the world of “Big Blue” everyone is paid in relation to what their LEVEL (think pyramid) pays?

CEO: $2.1 Million

President: $900,000

COO: $610,000

Chief Executive: $350,000

Chief of Sales: $178,000

Top Salesman: $125,000

His Secretary: $34,000

Not good. Not bad. But if given a choice, would you want to control your income or have it controlled by a system that ONLY dishes out an income that the prescribed “level” pays?

Here in America, some of is prefer to BE THE FOOD CHAIN instead of working for the those that control the food chain.

It’s as I said, being the Hunter or the Hunted. U-Pick.

So many of us in the earlier days cried, “but I need the benefits!”

Here’s an idea. Why don’t you create income streams so deep that you can pay your OWN families benefits with [just] the interest from one of your savings accounts!

Or, with the “side” two or three thousand a month you earn from say, income stream # 23!

It’s a choice. Just a choice.

Today’s network is a resource of people, ideas, profit streams and a buzz about soldiering each other to prosperity. One that simply will not go away, Unlike any other time ever—–in history, more people have decided to work——as one—to manifest the greater good of themselves, of each other and their personal rights, as Americans to get filthy stinking rich.

In fact, if you are not soldering your own mastermind and serving a network around you and pushing other people ahead of you, you better start. Because that is today’s link to the new economy.

People helping people.

Why bother even thinking that the company can take care of you if the company isn’t even sure if it can take care if itself?

So where is Big Brother these days? He’s looking out for #1 and
pulling his hair out because of the constant and never ending list of new competitors that keep hurling spit balls at him. And not from across the street either. Now the competition is “global” for Pete sake!

(read that last paragraph again if you can)


What is making people successful today is sharing resources and networks with each other and “love is the killer app” (incredible book by Tim Sanders)! Just look at the networking books that have been become best sellers by Robert Kiosaki

Personal networks have become “bank” and that is the new economy.

As marketing fans—think Jay Abraham on crack!—we have read the marketing books, learned the psychological triggers and now we all know what impulses people to buy, we went to the motivation seminars and we even own the t-shirt to prove it!


However, trying harder, chanting louder, believing in yourself more and thinking positively, while useful, if you are new, are no longer your short stack of things to get ahead with anymore.

As a matter of fact, it’s not even about you anymore. It’s about what you can do for others and how well you can attract and mange your own network of people. The guy who said (his name is Dale Calvert), “build other people and the people will build your business” was right. So right!

Some call it Affiliate Networking. That’s what this is and that’s the buzz word and the bizz stream of the people now in the know and the people of today who are taking back what the CEO’s and the office cube patrol monkeys took from us. Our security. Our pride and the fun of being on the hunt to get ahead.

So who are we?

Soldiers of prosperity.

We are “as one” and unified.

That’s who we are

Sound strange? Maybe new? Forget it. It’s an old formula that corporate types told you didn’t work.

The little guy thinks that success is something that he has to look for inside of himself. Not true. Success is all around each of us and walking by us all of the time. The key then, as a Master-Mind, is to be open to it and the sub-set to that clearly, is to be open to everyone, not to some, but to everyone around you.

Norman Vincent Peale started the crusade of “me” and if you believe the people of this world who sold you on positive thinking and that believing in yourself is the key to caviar wishes and lottery winning dreams, I’d debate that.

Start Here:

BELIEVE in me.


Yes self-image is key. But where does self-image come from?

It starts with a vision FIRST of other people.

Applaud those around you.

Build up those around you.

Give it away. For….

What you give away you get to keep.

That is a Soldier of Prosperity

Do you work where you are tolerated?

The rich work where they are CELEBRATED.

Small people can’t BUILD other people.

Be a BUILDER of others.


Here is new information. It’s hard to get someone who is near bankruptcy to start chanting, “I can do it. I can do it.”

It’s hard to take the employee MIND and teach them over night to start getting pumped up about their potential to start earning $25,000 per month. That’s not something we can easily.

So start here and teach people this.

Step 1: BELIEVE in other people FIRST

Step 2: Start to DO and SEE things as they see them.

Step 3: Little by little, your own belief, in yourself, will start to grow.

But most people never even thought of having a mentor or a coach. Except for Millionaires like Michael Jordan and Tom Cruise. They have coaches, stylists, fitness trainers and assistants. Helpers.

Do you have a coach? Do you have a life-style coach? Why not.


Where I started and how I climbed from small to bigger was by believing first in other people. Back then, when I was scraping to pay bills and all of that “I used to be poor and now I am rich” rhetoric, but back then, even when I thought of myself as a squished little jobber, I drew GREAT vision and tremendous HOPE by running next to other people who were undeniably ringing the bell and making a killing by building up other people and helping other people create and build their own personal affiliate networks.

Terrible Odds
If you focus on yourself you are the only game in town. Terrible odds by anyone’s measure However, if you focus on other great people you just can’t help but advance your own thermostat, raise your own expectations of possibility, balloon your own earning potential, build a richer network of fellow Soldiers–you can’t help but grow large.

My first two steps out of the gate where (a) in my gut, believing in everyone around me even more than I believed in little ole me (b) believing in our free enterprise system with so much zeal that short of success simply wasn’t an option to me.

THE MASTER-MIND: Your Greatest Resource!

If you are new and the idea of masterminding, (people sharing business resources collectively as a network) and of all of a sudden having hundreds of new friends and cool new biz-mates at your simplest of whims, if that notion seems foreign to you right now, only because you are new, guess what and good news, we have been here and doing this, really, since the middle fifties.

Remember Glenn W. Turners network, “DARE TO BE GREAT!”

What we do and what we will explore with you is not anything new. The difference though, is now networking has become a national obsession for some and even a priority for many, whereas years ago, this form of networking, as a business, was only a by product of a larger business model.

Today? The network IS the business!

The old adage, “Time is money” is way old century and very Machiavellian (urrrr! ruff-ruff!) thinking.

The Network is The Model

The Master-Mind is Where The Money Begins

The “now think” is this, the network is revenue. Not [just] money. Revenue. Equity. Residual income.

Stuff big brother always knew about but kept away from the cogs in the wheel. The employees worked for a wage while the big hairs and the people who dined in the corporate cafeteria worked for equity and residual slam dunks.

In the last century we worked to make money. Now here in the new economy of people, we work for a loving instead.

Now “loverage” rules (see “Conversations with Millionaires” by Michael Litman and Jason Oman!) and the little guys aren’t so small anymore!

Our collective ability to SHARE THIS ALTERNATIVE THINKING with others and buying power creams any other market share that anyone wants to waste time penciling on paper and apparently, we are the new world order.

Did Bill Gates just buy-up Lotus (March 2005)? You bet. That’s because POWER begets power. That’s because the more tools Microsoft can offer people the larger their monopoly is.

POWER. Shared power. That’s what we do and that’s what we sell at Unified Master-Mind. We share our rolodexes and we share various income streams. We share our coaching and we chair the power.

No upline. No downline. No managers. It’s unified. As one.

In the streets and outside of our own network here at Master-Mind you can beat each up and claw your way up through various competitors who you destroy.

Competition and democracy is a good thing. So play hard and pray even harder. Outside. Under the red, white and blue.

Brother In Freedom

Here though, amongst your brothers and sisters of Freedom, amongst each other here, within our master-mind, it’s bringing up each other. There is not competition; call it a “safe house” if you will.


Oh sure, the hipsters and the kids with baggy jeans may be what television (and McDonalds) prays to, but it is we boomers who cripple those CD burners in size and it is we who have the most money to purchase.

It is we who rock and never forget that.

Plus the BIG BRANDS (yawn) are begging for our trade and what you will dig up in chapter one will be worth two Martini’s–not one.

Integrity and Being Likable are Intangibles
The difference between working for money and building a network is that when you work on a level that is higher than simply money, your equity becomes residual.

Which points back to each of our own individual intangibles, i.e., your network, your reputation and your ability to serve the network and for the good of all within the Master-Mind

What We Do

As I said, our lineage dates back to the middle fifties and all that is old is new again. What UNIFIED MASTER-MIND is, more than anything else, is a celebration of business in and of the way it used to be and never should have stopped.

We are in the people business and the product that we sell is business consulting and business ideas that only work when you add other people and BUILD other people as hard as you build yourself.

That is why we call this UNIFIED MASTER-MIND.

Our Mantra

Use money and love people. Not vice versa. This isn’t about “them” against us. Although to know thy enemy is good business so say’s Sun Zui in the classic, “The Art of War.”

Instead, this is about us and how there is far greater security, for all of us, if we join together instead of independently being scattered under the umbrella of Big Brother.

The Perfect Network Marketing System!

Network marketing is hard. Don’t kid yourself and truthfully don’t even attempt a network marketing venture unless you either have or plan to put into place a highly potent and highly duplicatable network marketing system
geared for 2005 and beyond.

Before I tell you what a perfect network
marketing system
should look like let’s talk about what doesn’t
work for most
network marketers. As I’m sure you probably
know, network
marketing is notorious for having a 95% failure
rate. Let’s
talk about why.

Have you ever heard of Occam’s razor?

Basically it states that the simplest
explanation for a
phenomenon is usually the best. We’ll use this
theory to
explain why more than 95% of network marketers


Most network marketers fail because the
marketing methods
that they are taught don’t work 95% of the time.
simple right?

So we’re led to ask the logical next question,
what are most
fledgling network marketers taught?

Well, I can only speak from my experience, but
what I was
taught was to buy and cold call leads.

Now, I’m not going to say this doesn’t work, but
I will say
is that after six months of cold calling leads
for 3 hours a
day with very little success this tactic doesn’t
work for
me. Don’t get me wrong some people are very good
at cold
calling leads, but most people aren’t.

What happens to most people after they’ve spend
thousands of
dollars on leads with very little success after
months of

They give up.

Another factor contributing to why most network
fail is the type of leads they use. Why does the
type of
leads make a difference?

Business opportunity leads, the leads most new
marketers are told to use, are generic. These
leads answer
an ad that just asks them if they want to be
free, or make money from home or something like

Well . . . of course they do!

But that doesn’t mean they want anything to do
with YOUR
network marketing program. When the average
network marketer
calls these generic bizz opp leads the leads
don’t know
anything about the network marketer’s business
and for the
most part honestly don’t care. This leads to
the fledgling
network marketer hearing a lot of “NOs”.

Hearing NO all the time leads to quite a bit of
self doubt,
both about the network marketers own ability and
validity of their association with their network
company. Negative feelings begin to harbor and
as I said
before eventually the network marketer gives up,
with 3-6 months.

The fledgling network marketer’s perception of
business goes from one of opportunity to one of
doubt and negativity. Reality follows
perception, so because
the fledgling network marketer believes both
themselves and
their business as having little hope this
becomes TRUE.

That’s basically why 95% of network marketers
fail if you
asked me.

So how do we change this paradigm?

We build a Perfect Network Marketing System!

Now we get to the good stuff! What does a
perfect network
marketing system look like?

For the average home based network marketer to
be successful
certain thing MUST be in place. I will list them

o Lead capture page designed specifically for
Network Marketing Company:

This page must contain strong sales copy that
tells the
prospect why he wants to opt in for more
information. The
best way to do this is to offer a High Value
Free Report in
exchange for there contact information.

o Free Report specifically designed for Network
Companies Opportunity:

The free report must be highly informative. It
must explain
all of the features and benefits of joining the
marketing organization as an independent
distributor and
must focus on the support and resources
available to the new
recruit should they choose to purchase a
The company’s products and compensation plan
must be clearly
explained here as well. If possible,
testimonials should be
used, as they are extremely powerful sales
conversion tools
in this portion of the sale process.

o Follow up Email System:

Attached to the Free Report there must also be a
follow up
system that continually markets through email
the program to
the lead. Most leads don’t act immediately and
must be
marketed to at least 7 times before they take
action. The
email follow up system must have strongly worded
sales copy
and must have a system for getting through spam

o A Continual Feed Back System that uses the
Fear of Loss:

Along the with email follow up system there must
be a
feedback system that will alert the prospect by
email when
new prospects opt into the system and invoke the
fear of
loss during this process by telling the prospect
that if the
next prospect in line upgrades to a paid
position before he
does then he will forever loose commission on
that prospect.
This is an extremely powerful psychological tool.

o Strong Support:

It’s one thing to get someone to buy a
distributorship, but
it’s a totally different thing get them to work
the business
effectively. There must be an email follow up
system once a
new distributor signs on to ensure that he
receive adequate
training on how to market successfully. There
must also be
human support at this point. So, there must be
relationships built between upline and new

o A Good Product or Service:

In order for this entire marketing process to
work, the
system must be back by a strong and ethical
marketing organization that sells a high demand
product that
people need and would purchase even if there
were no
compensation plans attached to it.

o You:

You must be an active part of your business. You
must be
willing and open to learn new ideas and tactics
at all
times. You must have a passion for your business
and truly
believe in the product that you plan to build your
organization around.

In Conclusion:

I’ve listed the basic component’s a of a perfect
marketing system. This system will involve NO
cold calling
because the prospect will opt in to request more
specifically about your business before you even
talk to

Cold calling generic bizz opp leads and hearing
a lot of
NO’s is what causes most network marketers to
fail. We want
to avoid this at all cost. This is what this
system is
designed to do!

By having your prospects opt in specifically for
information about your product and business plan
and then by
giving them a detailed report explaining all of
the above
before you even speak to them your chances of a
sales conversion will greatly be increased. The
follow-up and fear of loss systems will increase
chances successful sales conversion even
further. These
factors will cut down on the number of NO’s that
the you
must endure before success. This will increase
your home
business’s duplicability vastly.

Further, having uniform training and exceptional
support are
the basics and must be present.


Before you spend another dollar on your network
efforts ask yourself if you’re using a perfect
marketing system. If your answer is no and you
aren’t having
any success then ask yourself what you can do to
change your
system to one that will work for you and your
distributors using the principles that I have

I struggled with network marketing myself using
the old
fashion methods, but as soon as I studied
internet marketing
and how to apply it to network marketing things
got a lot
easier. I was able to spot network marketing
that were specifically positioned for internet
marketing and
earmark what I thought to be the best of the
bunch. After
that, it was simple a matter of choosing the one
that with
what I though had the “best product”.

Teaching Your Son About Sex

Teaching Your Son About SexParents have an active role to play in educating their sons about sex, and introducing the subject at an early age can reinforce important issues such as childbirth, relationship values, contraception and sexual health. Skipping or delaying this education can lead to young males experimenting with sex at an early age, and it can also result in unhappy relationships, unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.

  • Introduce your son to the importance of sexual relationships at an early age, as this will help him be more comfortable with the subject as time progresses. Use opportunities to address the subject when curiosity arises, especially when your son wants to know where babies come from or asks about reproductive organs.
  • Explain how parents sleep together, and always be clear about sex being an act of love as well as a form of reproduction. Always reinforce that sex is a healthy activity and never be embarrassed when your son asks awkward questions. Answer with honesty, and try to include props to explain how adults make babies, such as picture books or educational videos.
  • Use everyday situations to talk about sex in a frank and open manner. Use examples on television or from other relationships that the child sees to provide information about good and bad sexual behavior. Try to make sex a part of everyday life but encourage your son to wait until you get home before asking questions instead of addressing issues in public.
  • Introduce the emotions and needs that adults encounter, and explain how sex can be used to satisfy them. Make it clear that adults can safely indulge in sexual behavior without having to make babies, and that the experience can be one of enjoyment and fulfillment. Also discuss the fact that some adults choose to practice abstinence until marriage, and fulfill themselves through masturbation.
  • Talk about masturbation as your son reaches puberty, and stress that the habit is perfectly natural and healthy. Explain that masturbation is a tool for learning about the body as well as a source of sexual stimulation, and that couples practice the technique as well. Introduce the importance of sexual health, and encourage your son to regularly his wash hands and genitals after periods of private touching.
  • Talk about contraception during his early teenage years, and explain how different contraceptive methods prevent the risk of pregnancy. Give examples of the difficulties that unwanted pregnancies can cause, and explain that sleeping with multiple sexual partners without contraception can also lead to sexually transmitted diseases. Discretely leave condoms in your son’s bedroom so he becomes familiar with wearing them, and always encourage him to keep condoms in a wallet once he begins dating.

Sex Education Games for Kids

Sex Education Games for KidsWith the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2016 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey finding that 7.1 percent of students have sexual intercourse before age 13, the need for sex education in kids’ lives remains prevalent. While some adults may disagree about what age to begin sex education, kids can learn valuable information by engaging in sex education games.

Adventures in… Sex City

Sex education games targeting kids may help them develop strong values regarding sexual behavior. The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) hopes as much, funding development of a video game aimed at teaching sex negotiation and refusal skills to kids ages 9 to 14. Another organization using sex education games to reach out to kids, the London-Middlesex Health Unit, created the “Adventures in… Sex City” game. Accessible at the Health Unit’s official site, the game features cartoon superheroes fighting the evil Sperminator, who tries infecting citizens with various sexually transmitted diseases and infections (STDs and STIs, respectively). Players choose one of four “Sex Squad” superhero characters and answer sex-related questions. For each correct question, players deflect the STI-ridden sperm back to the Sperminator, who loses power from his power meter with each hit. If players answer enough questions correctly, they cure the Sperminator of his STI and he rejoins the Sex Squad.

Contraception: The Board Game

Moving around a board using condom- and pill-packet-shaped pieces, kids discuss and learn sexual health and contraception when playing Contraception Education Ltd.’s “Contraception: The Board Game.” Recommended for ages 11 and up, the game features contraception- and sex-related questions and scenarios. Players roll dice to advance their pieces around the board and try collecting information from six outlets offering sexual health and contraception advice: accident/emergency units, condom machines, family planning clinics, general practitioners, pharmacies and youth sexual health organizations. Kids also may engage in “Contraception: the Computer Game” on CD, which lets one or two players participate in safer sex discussions, or lets larger groups use LCD projections or interactive whiteboards to play the games.

The Sex Ed Game

Kids try filling every piece of their “pie” in Iser Games’ “The Sex Ed Game,” available as a free trial download at the CNet site. After choosing the number of players, kids click on one of four possible answers for each question; correct answers earn players points and pieces to their “Trivial Pursuit”-looking pie, while incorrect answers cost players points. The game ends when each piece of a player’s “pie” fills in.

The Sex Game

Players slither toward letters and avoid making contact with baddies in “The Sex Game,” accessible at the Avert AIDS international charity site. Sex-related statements appear on the screen with a missing word. Players use their mouse to move the pink snake toward the letters that make up the missing word, earning more points for grabbing the letters in the correct order. As players progress through levels, the snake’s tail grows longer. If players get too close to the black-circled baddies, the baddies attack and cost players’ lives. Should the baddies guard any letters, players should make the baddies chase them. The game ends when players lose all five of their lives.

Physical Education Games for Children

A successful physical education class for kids will strike a balance between teaching about sports and fitness, and playing fun games to keep kids interested. If you have to keep a group of kids entertained, try these games to keep the kids burning energy.

Ships across the Ocean

Ships across the Ocean is a classic gym or field game for that many kids likely already know how to play. Line the kids up at one end of the gym or field, and pick two or three kids to come to the middle as “taggers.” The taggers begin the game by saying “ships across the ocean,” and then all the other kids have to run to the other end of the playing area while the taggers try to run after them an tag them. Kids that are tagged can either become new taggers or sit down as immobile taggers. The game continues with rounds or “waves,” until all the kids have been tagged. Another variation is allowing the taggers to call only certain people across to run, such as those wearing a certain color.

Three Step

Three Step is a dodge ball variant that can be played with a gym with a group of any number. Several dodge balls are placed within the gym, and kids are able to move freely about the gym. Anyone can pick up a ball and throw it at someone else. If the ball hits, the person hit is “out” and must sit down. After picking up a ball, the thrower can take three steps before he must throw. If another player catches a ball, the thrower is out. If a ball happens to roll to a sitting player, she may stand and throw the ball at anyone still in, and may come back in the game if she tags that person out. The game proceeds until there is one person left. To quicken the game, add more balls to the playing area.

Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag can be played in a large area, such as a field or even a park or forest. Two teams each has its own “side,” separated by a definite dividing line. Whenever a player ventures into the other team’s side, he can be tagged by opposing players and sent to a “jail” area. The goal of the game is to infiltrate the other team’s side, grab a “flag” (which can be an actual flag, a football, or any other marker) and return it to their own territory. Players entering the jail area may rescue two of their captured teammates and return with them to their own territory.

Kids Schools Provides the Best and Unique Early Education for Your Kids

Kids Schools Provides the Best and Unique Early Education for Your KidsFor everyone’s life education plays an important role. A life without education is very difficult to realize. So for that reason parents of today are sending their children to school. For success and for becoming a good citizen, Education is important. From very early age, the human mind starts growing as science says. Mind develops at the age of five. So this time period is very crucial.

Parent’s full concentration should be on this. That is why Play schools in India are special. The curriculum of kid’s school should be special and effective with a view to help and developing the children’s mind.

Generally the kids schools in India offers a wide range of programs which includes mind developing activities and games. Many reputed schools in India also offer programs which include art and craft, games, study, and many more things.

In some comparison to other countries in the world, Play schools in India are also focusing on the all-round development of the kids. For the development of child’s mind, the kids schools in India also focuses on the unique curriculum of kids. In addition, they also provide various study material, which is not enough for proper growth of mind. The government of India also run some genuine programs along with teacher training courses.

For efficient development of child’s mind, these programs are playing a very important role. These programs focus on the development of mind as well as health also. Children get an environment which sharpens their mind, under these programs.

For providing effective and quality education, the teachers in kid’s school should be qualified and trained enough. For better understanding, parents should also cooperate with the teachers of the school. A child, here, gets a friendly environment, in which they study, play games, learn and sing poems, solve puzzles and many other activities. This helps kids in thinking and understanding the things at the broader level.

The society or the government should go hand in hand for the all round development of the children. Various schools even provide child care services in India. Even people should be more concerned about the growth of their children’s mind. The parents who are fee, they should devote their time and energy for their kids. The role of child care services in India is growing day by day because of working parents. Child care schools are also able to save the time and energy of the working community of the society. Especially, Child Day care services in Delhi are expensive and effective. If you are staying in Delhi, you can access any schools providing child day care services.

Home Playground Ideas for Your Kids

Home Playground Ideas for Your KidsWhen you have kids at home, it’s best to take some time to actually build a playground for them so that they can have fun and feel the warmth that home brings. As kids grow up, they need to be able to explore their environment and see how everything works by playing up with their imagination. Kids who are given the chance to play are also given the chance to stimulate their brains and let their personalities and talents come out as well.

Here are some interesting ideas you might want to try for your kids’ home playground:

  • Make a theme for your playground

If you find that your child is actually inclined to like a specific cartoon character, then it would be good to build from that and then make your kid’s playground based from the said theme. This way, you can really work around something that he actually likes. Having a specific theme for the kid’s playground also allows him to become easily comfortable with his surroundings. This can also be a fun way for you to extend the playground as a bonding spot for you and your child as you tell stories related to the characters found in the said area.

  • Use non-toxic materials

Kids tend to be very curious with the things around them and before you knew it, they might be putting stuff inside their mouth especially when you can’t see them. To help prevent unwanted events from happening, you should make sure that the stuff you have around the playground are safe and non-toxic. Some materials can also harm your kid’s skin or even cause sudden allergies if they are not made to be non-toxic.

  • Have pads wrapped on metals and invest in good foam carpets

Keep your kid’s playground totally safe by making sure that pads are placed on metal fittings and other essential base structures. You can find such items at discounted prices especially if you have to buy in bulk. You might also want to consider getting foam mats as your playground’s flooring. This is also where a sandy playground floor or a sandbox comes in handy because it softens the fall should such a thing happen.

  • Put tables and chairs

Make your kid’s playground a holistic one–meaning to say, it’s not just for play but for learning as well. You can start investing on good books and put them inside the play area. You can also spend a great bonding time with your kid by putting together some puzzle pieces or coloring books with drawings of characters that they like. You can also try getting tables and chairs which complement the whole look of the playground.

As you start to plan your kid’s playground, don’t forget to consider it as a place where your child would first get to experience how’s it like to mix in playing with learning. This is also the ideal place where he would find his or her independence and begin to form social relationships with family members and even their first friends.

Where Are The Kids?

Where Are The Kids-When I was a high strung kid, I used to play at the park all day long in the summer months and even in the winter. There was always something to do there. If it was hopping on the swings, using the monkey bars, the slide, or just running in the grass from end to end and/or just rolling in the sandbox, chasing some kid down the block, or shooting some rats by the junkyard; that was an exciting day. Playing is that powerful. It’s addictive. It’s what children have done since the beginning of time…till about a generation ago, when we decided, as a country, that letting kids go outside on their own is just “too dangerous.”

So, whatever happened to ‘go outside and play’? Out of fear, our neighborhoods, once the classic microcosm of a free America, have devolved into little more than supervised “dorms.”

One reason for this lock down is that parents today are so damn screwy, scared of predators. They believe, or so—that if Saturday is “announced” as kids-outside day, predators will celebrate by circling the parks in white, window-less vans. Play is good for the brain—it makes kids into problem solvers. Play is good for the body—it makes kids less obese. Exposure to dirt builds the immune system. And don’t obsess about accidents: More kids go to the hospital from falling out of bed than trees.

I fell out of many trees as a ‘wild child.’ Climbing trees and falling out of them is all part of growing up. I remember, we had two chestnut trees in front of our house and I used to climb into the attic window to get to my bedroom. That way I didn’t have to go into the main part of the house and have to take off my shoes, wash my hands, face and hair with boraxo (and/or) have to hop in the tub to take a bath with ivory soap.

I started developing creativity and imagination at an early age. Do children today use their imaginations as much as we did when we were kids? Do you see kids spinning incredible tales and stories in their make-believe play like we used to when we played “cops and robbers” or “cowboys and Indians”? As a child’s figment play, I used to do a lot of repetitive movements like karate chops, wrestling spins, finger shooting and moves that have no story to them? I was a smart, spazzy kid who had a weird sense of humor. We as kids back in my day, frequently got caught up in the rough-and-tumble play of good guys and bad guys – with many of their plots influence. And a lot of it had to do with our surroundings.

I remember back in the old days, playing pickup games, with no parent around over coaching and killing the fun, is how us kids developed passion and instincts for sports.

For some time now, I have been asking myself the same question as I pass by lonely playgrounds, empty yards and deserted ball fields, “where have all the children gone?” When I was young, it would have taken an incredible force to keep the neighborhood children indoors. I know this makes me sound like an old fogy preaching about the old days, but I am serious. Have you ever taken the time to think about what happened? I am sure I’m not the only old geezer plus something who used to explore in the woods, play hide and seek, engage in pick-up games, and ultimately be dragged back into the house when it was finally too dark out.

Teaching Body Parts to Preschoolers Through Games & Activities

Teaching Body Parts to Preschoolers Through Games & ActivitiesPreschool children are full of curiosity and energy. You cannot expect to teach a preschooler while he sits still and quietly listens to you. The best way to teach students in this age group is to involve them in games and activities. When you teach preschoolers about body parts, you can do so by allowing them to get up, move around and burn some energy. This method of learning will help them to have fun while they gain knowledge about the parts of the body.
