Monopoly was our quintessential family game when "little". In fact, the popular board game is relatively complex for young children. So it was a little older that we were playing.
But did you know that there is a "Junior" version for ages 5 and up? This is a significantly reduced version of the standard version. Thus, 2 to 4 players (children with or without adults) share the game board of 24 squares. The currency (Monopoly dollars) is simply denominations of $1. Have you come across the Pizzaria? The purchase price is $1. Are you buying Promenade? Get out your big $5!
Also, the concept of houses/hotels has been simplified. So, when buying land, we just need to deposit a token representing our pawn. When a player stops on our land, the amount of the invoice is the same as the purchase price. Ouch! This ensures that the games end quickly and last about twenty minutes.
Only “Chance” cards exist to enhance the game and sometimes help the less fortunate. But beware: it is still possible to fall on the “Prison” box!
We tried Monopoly Junior with a 4 year old and he quickly understood the rules. So don't hesitate to introduce your child to the interesting concepts that this game offers. It makes a great family activity and the game costs around $20.
This game exists in different themes: regular, Frozen, Disney Princess, etc. A good gift idea at a low price. This game is one of our favorites!
It is normal for a toddler to wet the bed. However, by the age of 5, if this problem persists, we should start paying attention. It should still be put in context that 9% of children between 5 and 10 years old have nocturnal enuresis.
Tip 1: Don't lose patience!
As parents, we must not lose patience with this problem and not blame our child. Rather, we need to help him get through this period when self-esteem can be affected.
Tip 2: anxiety or fear
Is the bedroom or hallway to the toilet too dark for your child to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom? Does your child have anxiety or nightmares? You have to be attentive to the needs and state of mind which may have a connection with the problem.
Tip 3: Reduce fluids at night
Obviously, drinking more fluids during the day and less in the evening is essential.
Tip 4: Empower your child
A pee in the night? No problem. Ask your child to help you help wash the pajamas and bed sheets the next day.
Tip 5: Wake him up at night
Wake your child up at a specific time when you know they should urinate normally. But if your child is sleeping soundly, don't push it.
Tip 6: Use a "wet stop" (wet alarm)
Sometimes your child does not feel the urge to urinate. There are small devices that detect the first drops and emit sounds to wake up the child. This has been shown to have positive effects in allowing a better understanding of the needs of the body. You still have to be patient, but after a few weeks of use you can already see improved results.
For example, we tested the Wet-Stop3 alarm. This small device works with 2 AAA batteries. It is possible to put in vibration, sound or vibration-sound modes. The sound is loud and the child wakes up every time. A cable with a liquid detector is attached to your child's panties. It should be placed on the front of the panties in order to detect urine early on. A button on the side silences the alarm.
The Wet-Stop3 comes in three colors: blue, green or pink. It retails for $66.99 CAD. It was designed by a pediatric urologist and is suitable for both boys and girls.
Tip 7: Motivation
It is good to find a system to motivate our child during successes, for example a calendar with stickers and maybe a small reward after a few days without pee.
For example, why not give your child some new panties according to their current taste?
This is a great gift idea for the whole family, especially for us parents who grew up with Super Mario Bros in our living room. Nintendo has just launched a new Game & Watch-type handheld console, 30 years after the last of its kind: the Game & Watch Super Marios Bros. This retro-looking console comes with the “Super Mario Bros 1” and “2: The Lost Levels” games, as once found on the original NES console, as well as the classic 1980 Ball Game.
This pocket console is indeed very small. Compared with another vintage Donkey Kong 3 console from 1984 (see photos), it is the smallest we have tested. It is still of good quality with sound and a screen allowing you to play for a long time! It also offers other surprises such as an animated clock display. It comes with a USB wire for charging.
Like other systems that Nintendo makes in limited supply, the Nintendo Game & Watch Super Mario Bros might be running out very quickly. If you are a Nintendo fan or want to introduce your children to the classic games of your youth, this is a great opportunity to seize. It retails for $69.99 CAD.
Don't wait too long, this one will quickly become a collector's item!
