Addiction and Intelligence: Is There a Connection?

Here's Why the Dog Shouldn't Lick the Baby (And How to Prevent It)

"While it may look like love when a dog licks a baby’s face, it usually means that a dog is asserting dominance. It’s licking the baby, saying that the baby is its property. There is a dangerous dynamic that is introduced when a dog is allowed to believe that an infant is his to protect. Dogs are very protective. We see this in our dogs even without babies and young children around. They will bark when someone comes to the door. They will even attack when they feel like their owners are truly being threatened. The bottom line is that you do not want your dog to form a parental or protector relationship with your baby. It will foster risky, harmful behavior in the future."

Oatmeal is a very filling meal that contains enough fiber to improve your digestion and promote GI tract regularity. But oatmeal tastes rather bland alone. To keep it healthy, you will probably search for alternatives to refined sugar because sugar completely combats the health content of the oatmeal when it’s added to it."

Parents must pay attention to where the toys are manufactured, what the toys are made of, and whether there have been any recalls on the toys that they are looking to purchase."
