Health and Education Stuff

Education is the key of success

But that is not why we do it. Not entirely.

The first ember I ever busted was achieved because I let go of fear. For me, I saw bow drilling as a metaphor for my success as a field instructor. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was hinging my self-worth on whether or not I was able to achieve an ember. And I was failing. Over and over and over again, I tried and failed. I felt angry. I felt powerless. I felt hopeless. I felt like a bad staff. It was was cognitive distortion, though I didn’t know that at the time. Fortunately, I had supportive team members around me, coaching me in form and technique. And trusting, so absolutely, that one day I would bust. It would happen. I was the only one who didn’t believe that. And I was the one attaching my own worth to something outside of me. I stopped letting the ember drive me. I focused on the process. I breathed. And I busted an ember.

Know where they are, who they are with, and what they are doing.

mental health

Another way to be relational is to be aware of where your teen is, who he/she is with, and what he/she is doing. Get to know your teen’s friends. Monitoring their friends, either directly or indirectly, is also a protective factor against delinquency. If you teen is hanging out with delinquent friends, he/she is more likely to engage in those same risky behaviors.

Don’t be an intrusive parent (because autonomy is important to your child!), but ask questions and be in the loop about their life.

What Went Wrong with Yoast SEO Plugin?

yoast-plugin-bug-760x400

The ranking bug introduced what Yoast calls, “Panda-like problems” when it updated to the 7.0 version. This change affected settings to the way image redirects are handled. Fortunately this update did not affect all users.

Here is how Yoast describes the technical problem:

The bug was simple yet very painful: when you updated from an earlier version of Yoast SEO to Yoast SEO 7.0-7.0.2 (specifically those versions), we would not always correctly convert the setting you had for the old setting into the new one. We accidentally set the setting to ‘no’. Because we overwrote the old settings during the update, we could not revert this bug later on.

Be an actively involved parent.

 

Take an active interest in your teenager’s life by aiming for the three Ls: love, limits, and latitude.

    • Love. It may be uncomfortable, but show your teen some love. Thankfully, love is personal and can take many forms:
      • Give your child a bear hug after school (avoid early morning hugs, since at that hour most teens are like a bear waking up from hibernation)
      • Share a blanket as you watch a movie together on the couch
      • Buy their favorite treat as a surprise
      • Simply say, “I love you.”
