One of the greatest challenges for teachers currently is communicating with parents of their students. This is due, in part, to the country’s vastly diverse population as well as the fact that many parents in many communities work multiple jobs and dual income households in the U.S. is the standard.

High student success for any community relies on a team approach between parents and school. Therefore, a simple and effective way of communicating with families that speak English as a second language or parents who cannot be present at school events such as parent-teacher conferences is imperative. Classroom Dojo has created a wonderful new communication platform called “Translate”, that can make communication with these families much more consistent and positive on a daily basis.

The Translate platform allows teachers and schools to communicate with parents in their native language on a regularly, as well as send parents photos and videos of their child in school. This communication allows parents to be involved in their students schooling from the ground up, enabling greater student achievement and success, and the empowerment of parents who would normally not be able to support their child in school.

Often, parents of ESOL students are given important written communication only in English, causing them to miss important school information. Consistent communication with ESOL families can remedy this. By enabling regular communication ESOL families are empowered to play a bigger role in their child’s education. When parents feel empowered to participate in their children’s schooling, a more positive community culture can be created not only with in the classroom but also throughout the school. If 2 out of 3 schools were to use Classroom Dojo consistently throughout the classrooms, imagine how successful our students, and school communities could become!

Teething is hard on not only the children that it is happening to but also the parent. Teething is painful and stressful to children. We want a way to help our children when they are teething, but we want to make sure any type of medications we give them will not harm them. Medications have nasty side effects, and using all natural products help us to avoid these side effects. This is where Hyland’s comes in to play. Hyland’s has created a type of medication called Hyland’s Oral Pain Relief Tablets. These tablets dissolve and make it easier for children to take.

 

Hyland’s was created with kids and families in mind. They use safe and gentle ingredients to create medicines that will not harm children. Hyland’s knows that children, and some adults, have trouble swallowing pills, so most all of their medicines are either in liquid form or in the form of dissolving tablets. The pain relief teething tablets were made with babies in mind, because babies use their mouths to learn about the world around them. When their mouths are in pain babies are miserable. The pain relief tablets dissolve easily and help babies to feel better.

 

Another thing about Hyland’s is that their medications are homeopathic. Being homeopathic means that their products are all natural and come without the strain of harsh side effects.

So, if you need any type of medication for your children whether it be for teething or for something like a cold, you need to check out Hyland’s. Try the homeopathic route, avoid the harsh side effects, and help your children to feel better without fearing the side effects.

Raising babies can be a tricky affair. Unlike grown-ups who are able to accurately say what ails them babies cant. Toddler communications are normally limited to body language cries or smiles. For any first time parent, this can at times be confusing. Such is the teething phase. Teething often proves challenging to babies. It is due to the irritability and sleeplessness that accompanies it. To go through this phase well, the homeopathic Hyland’s baby oral relief tablets come in handy.

 

As the name suggests, these tablets offer relief to the baby during such discomforting time. In the current world, natural remedies are considered the best alternative.

Hyland’s baby oral pain relief tablet is readily soluble in water or tongue of the toddler depending on the parent’s discretion. Solubility is critical given the localized need to relieve irritability in the gums and emergent teeth. The mechanism of action in the Hyland’s tablets is based on active ingredients like Chamomile that targets the nervous system.The gums of babies are often very sensitive, the chamomile often soothes these phenomena relieving the nagging irritability. A key aspect of teething is the lack of sleep for the baby.

 

This homeopathic treatment takes this into consideration. Hyland’s baby oral relief tablets contain coffee cruda. Sleep is often induced by hormones in the baby’s body. Coffee cruda triggers the sleep hormones involved in the circadian rhythm. It is important for the drug not only to sooth the bays irritability but also induces the baby to sleep.

 

Its worthy of note is the mode of administration of the Hyland’s tablets is easy. The pill is simply crushed in a spoon and added to clean drinking water before being given to the baby.
