Goal Setting for Kids


One of the best ways to get children to feel grown up is to let them set goals. When they come to you asking for the next new game or toy ask them to work out a way to get it for themselves.

Ask your child to think of ways they can earn the money for the toy. If pocket money is not part of your parenting plan, perhaps you could work out a way for your child to earn credits or stars.

PLR Articles and Keywords

If you are going to try and utilize free website content articles, then it may be difficult for you to find ones that have your exact keywords, so you may have to either make revisions to the articles or base your keywords on the articles that you find.

Online Church Services. Good or Bad?



While trying to find a church in my area to possibly attend I found a lot of online church services. Who thought of that one? I have never used one but I wonder if it’s a good or bad idea.
