Water Safety for Kids: Essential Talk

 


Written By: Felecia Causey

Water danger is a topic that is frequently not talked about. It's an overlooked yet imperative conversation to have with kids at a young age. It's crucial to have this talk with children while they are small because they are naturally curious and often drawn to water. By teaching kids about the dangers of water. Promoting water safety can ensure your child develops a healthy respect for water.

We recently had a soccer tournament near the beach, so my son's team had a day at the beach. The day was beautiful with blue skies, but the wind was quite high,
and the waves were huge. Many of the boys on the team probably had their first time there. One of the boys on the team almost drowned while swimming in the ocean. I am sure seeing this made the team both afraid and sad, as they witnessed how dangerous the water can be.

As a mother, I regret not allowing my children to complete their swimming lessons when they were younger. I constantly find myself reminding them how important it is to be cautious around it. I hate that I wasn't able to break that generational curse of not having them learn how to swim. I constantly remind them not to allow others to lead them into dangerous situations involving water. 

As I reflect on the recent incident, I am sure that the boys learned a valuable lesson and will have more respect for the water. With summer here, parents take advantage of this opportunity by ensuring not only young children but also teenagers receive proper swim lessons to ensure they know how to stay safe while having fun in the water.

Featuring Interview with Cake Designer Nicole of OKC Cake Lady

Photos Provided By Nicole   Me: Hi Nicole! How did you start your passion for designing cakes and where are you located? Hi! I am located in Oklahoma City Oklahoma. I started working at a grocery store whenever I was 18 years old. I have always been a car Enthusiast and I had a mini truck that I was fixing up as a hobby. The grocery store manager asked if I wanted to work in the bakery to get more hours. Well, more hours equaled more money for my truck, and I kindly took them up on their offer. From there, I started in the bakery, and I absolutely loved it. I could not get enough of getting to create and putting smiles on customers faces. Me: What made you take a leap into starting your own business? I have always loved business. When I walk into other people's stores, I always look for ways to try to improve their store in my head. So, after working in the bakery for years I just knew that I could do this on my own and I would be a lot happier. I knew that being in my own environm

Featuring Tea Town in Montgomery, AL

Written By: Felecia Causey Tea Town is a family-owned restaurant located in Montgomery, AL.  It’s in a great location right off Vaughn Road, close to the AMC movie theater. The first thing that caught my attention was how clean it was.  I enjoyed how peaceful it seemed.  Oh, my goodness, my readers and followers know how important good customer service is to me.  The entire family that was there was so welcoming. I was impressed when they asked if I had any food allergies.  That was very courteous of them.    I wanted to get a little more background of this family.  Just by talking to Buu and Brandi I knew they were aiming to build relationships with their customers. Watching the interactions between them and each person that came through the door, told me that they would treat their customers like family.  It will definitely set them apart from many other restaurants in my book. Phat Trieu and Cam Thai came from Vietnam along with their kids.   They have been cooking for years and
