Headache when hair needs washing
You spend a lot of time on your bed. But have you asked yourself, "When was the last time I washed my sheets?" In a very small amount of time, your sheets can get covered with dead skin cells, sebum from the skin, even saliva and sweat. Case in point, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), humans shed between 30,000 and 40,000 skin cells every day. Wow, that's huge!

A few years ago, her neighbour Daw Win Mar spent K30,000 to dig a pit and improvised a latrine using wooden blocks as walls and a blue plastic sheet for the door. “My sister’s concrete apartment was very near. In the past, we used to go to her house if we wanted to [go to the toilet]. As I had more … [Read more...] about Yangon’s squatter need better latrines
Parents try their best to discipline their child when they misbehave, but sometimes everything can be a bit too much. So they make compromises and unnecessary rewards to make things easier. But kids need discipline. We can't just let everything go because we're tired, or frustrated. As a parent, you know you can't let kids get used to making small demands. Left unchecked, these small demands get bigger and before you know it, you've already lost control. "All parents want the best for their children and are concerned with fostering their self-esteem," said parent educator Nancy Samalin. "But when children tune us out, refuse to do what we want, defy or ignore us, it is normal to become annoyed and frustrated." Samalin, author of Loving Without Spoiling And 100 Other Timeless Tips for Raising Terrific Kids, drives home her point in her next remark: "Without meaning to, it's so easy to fall into the trap of overindulging and not setting limits." To help parents figure out when kids need … [Read more...] about 7 signs your kids need more discipline
