    A Disney World visitor said he was called an 'a******' for refusing to let a family go in front of him to watch a fireworks display, making their child cry.  A British man revealed he treated his wife to an expensive trip to the Orlando resort earlier this year, and got into an altercation with an angry dad at the Magic Kingdom's fireworks. Relating the story on Reddit's Am I The A******, the man, who proposed to his girlfriend during the trip, said he and his fiancée queued for two hours to get a good spot at the display, but were later taken to task by a father who wanted to be at the front with his child.  The visiting Brit said he offered to let the child go in front but not the whole family because they were much taller than his 4ft 11in partner, who had been very excited about the trip.  He revealed that the belligerent dad forced his way to the front row and was sent back by security, which made his child cry, but he...

    Parents of young children know what it’s like to play “pretend.” But now, experts are saying it is more important than ever for kids to let their imagination run free. They say playtime is not only fun for kids, but it’s essential for their growth. According to Good Housekeeping, playing “pretend” is extremely beneficial for your kids. Pediatricians say a child’s imaginative and creative play is essential for their social, emotional and cognitive development. Playing “pretend” can teach them self-control, self-regulation and can increase their concentration. It can also help them deal with times of crisis and stress later on in life. Experts say there are ways for parents to support pretend play and use it to help gauge their children’s emotions. Child psychologists say if you engage in pretend play with your child and notice recurring themes of violence, aggression or inappropriate content, it may be caused by underlying situations. If you have more questions about your child’s developmental behavior, talk to your pediatrician. Copyright 2020 by KSAT - All rights reserved.
    Putting the kids in charge may sound crazy. But letting them be the boss actually teaches confidence, and it might help out your busy life. Claire Lerner, a child development specialist in Washington, D.C., told National Geographic that kids often want more responsibility, if their parents will let them. Lerner says there is a balance between supporting and enabling, but when you find it, kids can learn valuable life lessons and you can take some of the work off your plate. If you let your child set the table for dinner or help clear the plates, that means the whole family may have time for fun activities together. By assigning tasks, such as walking the dog, washing the dishes or cleaning the bathroom, it teaches kids the world is bigger than they are. And if something goes wrong, say a dish breaks, the mistake can be a powerful learning lesson. Lerner says life isn’t perfect and it is best for your kids to learn how to own their mistakes and find solutions. Now, Lerner says it is important the task...
