With that said I feel like people never talk about eczema in kids or adult. Is it because people are on educated  on the topic or do they think eczema is just a dry skin rash that happens when it gets to hot or it's to cold out.
 So I wanted to speak on my experience  on eczema and how I started doing my further research on it. When I was little I would here my older family member talk about that they have eczema  and how they treated it or I heard friends growing up talking about they have dryed skin called eczema and they treat it with  lotions and different types of soaps. Now that's what I heard as a young person so as I got older I just thought eczema  was a dry skin rash. Now when I had my oldest he was about 11 months or 1 years old and it was in the summer we were out all day then came in he was taking a nap something told me to look at his arm and in the increase of his elbow area there was a small red  spot I panicked a little. I thought to my self oh know he got sunburned or something he didn't cry when I touched it. so the next day I took him to the doctor and the doctor says  everything is fine its just a little eczema you can use eucerin lotion to sooth it.Ok its just eczema  dry skin got it. But then my son caught a cold when he was two in a half and every time he coughed he would weeze so we took him to the doctor again and his doctor prescribed him and inhaler to help with the weezing he would get asthma symptoms when he caught a cold but fine on a day to day. So as a mom I started getting curious asthma is hereditary but you can grow out of it. But as I did research I found that eczema  and asthma go hand in hand. How come know one talks about eczema and that it can lead to asthma and so much more health problems if I new that eczema could lead to asthma and other health problems I could of took better precaution for my oldest. Yes I was a new mom back then but it would of just been helpful. Now with me having my second son I was prepared my youngest has eczema  as well but I treated it with eveno lotion with a oatmeal base and it cleared right up.With him now eating solids me and his doctor talked about feeding him foods that are high in allergic so then that way we can see if he's allergic and he can build  his tolerant since he is more prone to allergic reactions and might catch asthma due to his brother having it and it's hereditary. Now when I talk to other mom's and if we get on subject of are kids health I always let them know about eczema  and how it's not just a skin rash it's telling you that there is a reaction to baby's skin and it can to lead to asthma and adhd and other health problems and not just to take it lightly. always keep an eye on your baby and do further research for your self.

No more bad secerts by Daisy Copelin (Book review) #Mustread

No more bad secrets. By daisy Copelin To read a book from front cover to back is . What I did  when I got this book I knew it was a children's book about personal bodies but wow. This book is so well written as I read through this book I was so proud to read it because one its telling something every kid should know and think about at school age. I love the fact that the author painted a picture of a child a good, innocent, child to see how kids are so proud to be children but someone can change that innocents and it's our duty as parents to always talk to our children and check in with them and make them feel so comfortable that no one can ever take our child's innocents and also check every adult predator and child no one is safe and always check for ques. I'm glad I read this book because I'm always talking about what is a good way to talk to our children about abuse, sex, or inappropriate behavior and this is a good book for parents a

what age do you have the birds and bees talk

Today is a day where we are going to get straight into it. When is a good age to have the birds and bees talk? I ask this question only because I keep having these almost close talks with my son about the birds and bees. my son is only in the second grade and has come home asking me what is sex, and saying kids are doing subjective dances at school and he sees it and it confuses him. now at this age you already have the regular talk about personal body's and personal space and no one is to see their personal body unless it's your parents and doctor and your doctor can only do that because your parent is around and letting them know the slang of there private parts so they could never get tricked or anything. Now the birds and bees talk is more for preteens to teenagers because you talk about sex and everything else under the sun at this point because there of age to understand mentally and physically understand there body and puberty and everything else. while being able to
