1. What's the best plan for escape.
2. 2 (Each member of the family should know how to get safely outside by at least 2 routes.)
3. Drop on hands and knees and crawl to the nearest exit.
4. Go the meeting place that you and your family have planned. (Establish a safe meeting place away from the house. It prevents family members from searching for one another or re-entering the building.)
5. Study exits before a fire strikes. (Explore the building beforehand so that every exit is familiar. If a hallway becomes smoke-filled, memory can help in finding the exits.)

Teach children that if they find matches, they should tell an adult the location right away.
Make sure a household member is trained to use the fire extinguisher -- the ideal place for the extinguisher is in the kitchen.
Draw a simple picture of your home. Plan at least two escape routes from your home and two ways to get out of every room. Decide who will take charge of each child. Show children who live in high-rise buildings the shortest route to a safe exit. Warn them not to use the elevator.
Pick a safe place outside to meet family members after escaping from a fire -- remember, get out and call 911 -- do not try to put out the fire yourself and do not go back inside for any reason. Conduct a home fire drill at least twice a year, and do it at night, when most deadly fires occur.
Do you have a number on the front of your house? Can the number be seen easily from the street during the day and night? This is very important in case the driver of a fire truck or ambulance needs to find your house quickly. House numbers can be purchased at a low cost from a hardware store.
Real fires are FAST. In a few minutes your whole house could be on fire. Temperatures can be more than 600 degrees. You may not be able to breathe or see anything.
Each year, fires and burns kill hundreds of children and permanently scar thousands, yet more fire victims die from the smoke than flames. Smoke can overwhelm a child or adult in minutes.
Get out fast; seconds count. Phone for help from a neighbor's home, not from inside a burning building. Cover your mouth and nose. Crawl low under the smoke to the nearest exit.
Test the door before opening it. If it's hot or there's smoke, use another way out.
Once out, stay out. There's nothing more important in your home than you. If someone is missing, tell a firefighter immediately. Gather at your designated meeting place, and NEVER go back into a burning building.
If your clothing catches on fire, STOP. Running fans the flames, making fire burn faster. Shout for help. Don't run for help. Drop to the floor and cover your face. Roll back and forth to put out flames. Cool a burn with cool water.

This concept references an interesting phenomenon which occurs in buckets of crabs. If one crab attempts to escape from a bucket of live crabs, the other crabs will pull it back down, rather than allowing it to get free. Sometimes, the crabs seem almost malicious, waiting until the crab has almost escaped before yanking it back into the pot. All of the crabs are undoubtedly aware of the fact that their fate is probably not going to be very pleasurable, so people are led to wonder why they pull each other back into the bucket, instead of congratulating the clever escape artist.
This term is broadly associated with short-sighted, non-constructive thinking rather than a unified, long-term, constructive mentality. It is also often used colloquially in reference to individuals or communities attempting to "escape" a so-called "underprivileged life", but kept from doing so by those others of the same community or nation attempting to ride upon their coat-tails or who simply resent their success.

Your Money Personality is Healthy
Tuesday, October 7, 2008
1. automatically make it easy for your child to behave and difficult to misbehave.
2. allow your child to experience freedom to succeed
3. limit your "noes" and "don'ts" so that when you need them, they will mean something
4. discount all the small mistakes that are so exhausting to discipline
5. give your child freedom to be a child with reasonable limits
6. boost your child's self-esteem
Tip: Instead of saying "No, you can't have a cookie now," say "Yes, you can have a cookie after dinner." Your child will get the idea that many more things are possible than impossible.
"You can do this and this and this," not "You can't do that."

Four days after givng birth last January 24,2008, me and my husband went to a Phở Restaurant and he ordered Phở with fishballs. The first time I taste it I never like it because I'm not in the mood to eat while our baby was still in NICU.
Three months after I tried again the Vietnamese noodle soup, wow it drives me crazy. It's so yummy and until now we always order everyweek. Even our son really likes the taste of the soup.
What's the good news? It's helping me increase my milk production. We really wonder what is in that soup that made me feel full and our son sleep for 5 hours after drinking my milk. I wish we have more money to buy it everyday. I guess maybe because its soup that's why more production. I remember in our country we use malunggay leaves in a soup to help in milk production. Maybe that Vietnamese soup have like malunggay in there soup.

Never disagree about discipline in front of the children.
Never give an order, request, or command without being able to enforce it at the time.
Be consistent, that is, reward or punish the same behavior in the same manner as much as possible.
Agree on what behavior is desirable and not desirable.
Agree on how to respond to undesirable behavior.
Make it as clear as possible what the child is to expect if he or she performs the undesirable behavior.
Make it very clear what the undesirable behavior is. It is not enough to say, "Your room is messy." Messy should be specified in terms of exactly what is meant: "You’ve left dirty clothes on the floor, dirty plates on your desk, and your bed is not made."
Once you have stated your position and the child attacks that position, do not keep defending yourself. Just restate the position once more and then stop responding to the attacks.
Look for gradual changes in behavior. Don’t expect too much. Praise behavior that is coming closer to the desired goal.
Remember that your behavior serves as a model for your children’s behavior.
If one of you is disciplining a child and the other enters the room, that other person should not step in on the argument in progress.
Reward desirable behavior as much as possible by verbal praise, touch or something tangible such as a toy, food or money.
Both of you should have an equal share in the responsibility of discipline as much as possible.

Yesterday I ask my partner at work if he already saw a one thousand dollar bill. Well both of us didn't see yet. Today when I came to work He told me that the other sorter/classifier found a 1 million dollar bill. They really convinced me to believe their joke. I know for sure there is no such real 1 million bill. So I took it as a joke. But when I got home, i really have doubt if its true or not because my partner told me "mamatay pa ako". So it made me research maybe there is a bill but not really for transaction but just for fun.
Well after my research I found it! It's amazing they made real product like that. I hope I have one. You also want one?

Last night we are just talking about stampede in India while people are praying and somebody shouted there's bomb but it's not true and 236 people died of stampede. This is also sad peolpe die just because of false thoughts.
Reading about Philippine stampede this Saturday, people do blame the host ( Willie) of the show. Why? It's not his fault. It's no ones fault. It's accident! Well looking troughly on the case. People may say ABS-CBN must have their new system of holding such big shows. This is not the first time! Wake up management of ABS-CBN you cannot just pay again the family of the victims. Please do make your new system for the show. On the other hand they will blame it to people who went there without thinking that this will happen in a big crowd. Imagine about 30,000 people were lured to join the game show's anniversary celebration becuase of the big prizes, like cars and money at stake. Some had even lined up for two days to get tickets.
Ok, this is past. I'm really sorry to all the families who lost their love ones. We will pray for you. Hopefully there will be no next stampede on their next anniversary.

Firm: Consequences should be clearly stated and then adhered to when the inappropriate behavior occurs.
Fair: The punishment should fit the crime. Also in the case of recurring behavior, consequences should be stated in advance so the child knows what to expect. Harsh punishment is not necessary. Using a simple Time Out can be effective when it is used consistently every time the behavior occurs. Also, use of reward for a period of time like part of a day or a whole day when no Time Outs or maybe only one Time Out is received.
Friendly: Use a friendly but firm communication style when letting a children know they have behaved inappropriately and let them know they will receive the "agreed upon" consequence. Encourage them to try to remember what they should do instead to avoid future consequences. Work at "catching them being good" and praise them for appropriate behavior.

10. Demonstrate unconditional love by separating your child from her behavior. "I love you, even though I can't love what you did."
9. Be fun. Show your sense of humor and notice good behavior.
8. Be firm and consistent. Do what you say you're going to do to give your child a sense of security.
7. Be fair. Allow your child to keep his own power, and offer choices.
6. Expect and allow your child to live with the consequences of her behavior. She needs to know she is responsible for her own actions.
5. Tell your child what behavior you want by setting limits, ahead of time when possible. "I need you to..." "It's time to..."
4. Overlook the small stuff. Kids are little and human and will make all kinds of mistakes. Save your discipline for the real problems.
3. Respect your child's feelings and uniqueness. Find creative alternatives to spanking.
2. Practice a positive language with your child. "no" and "don't" are not helpful. Tell your child what to do in the positive: say "You can"...instead.
1. Model what you want your child to do and be.
