This past Ramadan, we read the Joy Berry Series "Help Me be Good." It's a beautiful set of books with great morals for kids & adults alike. I put together Qur'an verses & Hadith for support. Hope you'll find it beneficial.
The season of Halloween is upon us again. It's essential for us as Muslim parents to educate ourselves & explain this concept to our children.
Sound Vision has a couple of articles from the Islamic view, how to deal with the issue and sample letter to write to your child's teacher:
Many people don’t realize the importance of flossing. Flossing in between your teeth is essential for avoiding periodontal disease as well as preventing tooth decay.
Periodontal disease is one of the main causes of tooth loss in adults and can be easily prevented by flossing. Studies have even shown that flossing can also help prevent heart attacks and strokes.
For those who hate flossing, here's my review of a convinient flosser I received for review about a week ago- BrytonPick-Floss in Seconds. Here are my thoughts:
Firstly, this flosser is discreet- perfect for on the go flossers and comes in a small credit card size pouch for your wallet.
Great for people wearing braces or Invisalign. The egdes are blunt, flexible stainless steel for easy sliding and doesn't hurt the gums.
Another thing I love about it is that you can reuse it for up to 30 days. Available in different colors. If you're passionate about good oral hygiene you can take a look at their website: http://www.brytonpick.com
I've been given the opportunity to host a giveaway for an 8oz bottle of Prefense hand sanitizer (640 applications) for my readers and also post my review.
As a mom of 2 young ones, I've always been concerned about the Alcohol-based handsanitizers mainly because I'm cautious of having "Alcohol" on the skin. Some of you may not be aware for the danger of these hand sanitizers.
As we all know, about everything goes from hand to mouth when it comes to kids. Note the amount (about 62%) percent ethyl alcohol in each bottle. That is also known as ethanol. It is also the same stuff in wine and beer.
The New England Journal of Medicine first warned of cases of people ingesting hand sanitizer a few months ago. Now according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, the country's 61 poison centers are getting more calls about it. There were nearly 12,000 cases last year, up from 2005. Already, this year, there have been about 6,600 cases.
I received my bottle of Prefense Alcohol-free Hand sanitizer and I'm really loving it. It's safe to use for both adults and children (non-toxic, non-flammable). It doesn't contain any animal ingredient. and also doen't dry out the skin. I'm very comfortable with this product. One of the things that stands out about Prefense compared to other Alcohol-free hand sanitizers is that one application lasts 24 hrs or 10 hand washings!
Now, for the giveaway: The winner will get the big 8oz Prefense which offers 640 applications! -- with one spray lasting all day, that one bottle of Prefense could potentially last one user almost 2 years! The giveaway is open to U.S Residents only. The giveaway bottle of Prefense will be shipped directly to the winner.
To enter for the giveaway, all you have to do is to leave a comment on this page.
Contest expiration date: 10/30/2011
