Al Gore & his Nobel Peace Prize - Ironic or what? (Please Read)?

I didn't know that about Bush's house in Crawford. It just proves how big a hypocrite Gore really is. And he's making money by selling his "credit" to lessen your "carbon footprint" what a joke. You have to admit though he has done a good job of marketing himself.

Al Gore won Nobel Peace prize! What the heck..Ironic? (read please)?

Al Gore won Nobel Peace prize! What the heck..Ironic? (read please)?

exactly! I think this time around, they ran out of people to choose from, either that, or he bribed people to get it. Or maybe its a publicity stunt. I REALLY am pissed off that he won the prize. I was like WTF?! How the hell did he win?! Seriously though, he made NO contributions to society, he's a self-centered egotistical ass****... its all about the money, not about people benefitting. Peace?! What is that anymore?! If anything, he's caused great debates and arguments! 20 times more wasteful than the average american and 20 times more of a douchbag.

Getting your child to go to bed and stay in bed is an issue that many parents face. Here are some tips for a good night’s sleep for your child as well as for mom and dad.

Create a short routine before bedtime that involves quiet activities that occur in the same order every night. For example, have a snack, put pajamas on, brush teeth, go to the bathroom, say prayers, and read one book. It is important that this routine remains the same every night because the routine cues your child that bedtime is approaching.

Put your child to bed when she is still awake. Children learn how to fall asleep through practice. If you always rock your child to sleep, he will rely on rocking whenever he wakes during the night and needs to go back to sleep… even at 3 in the morning. It is okay to leave the door cracked open if you feel more comfortable doing so. If he attempts an escape, return him to bed and close the door for the rest of the night.

1.Tell him good night and remove yourself from the bedroom.

2.Ignore all of his attempts to summon you back to his room. This may include crying, pleading, demanding, coaxing, and even bargaining. Though this is difficult and even painful for some parents, it is highly effective and will resolve bedtime problems in a relatively short period of time.

3.If your child gets out of bed, transform into a robot-like version of mom or dad and immediately return him to bed. Specific techniques are as follows: lift him up under the arms so that he is facing the same direction as you are, carry him to bed, gently place him in the bed, and adjust the covers. During this time, do not talk to him, do not provide any type of affection (hugs, kisses, soothing, etc.), and of course, do not allow your child to delay bedtime.

4.Persistence, persistence, persistence! When your child gets out of bed, return your escapee to his own bed every single time that he attempts an escape. It will be exhausting and time consuming initially, but in the long term, it will make the process much easier!

5.Reward your child for going to and remaining in bed. Rewards could include adding a star to a sticker chart that eventually earns him a prize, getting a special breakfast cereal, or hiding a surprise under his pillow. Just as adults work in anticipation of a paycheck, your child needs to know that some type of reward will follow. Be sure to explain that he earned the reward because he did a good job going to bed.
