Standardized tests lack the side benefits of competing that normally buffer children’s anxiety. When you sign your child up for the swim team, he may really want to finish first, but there are many other reasons to be in the pool, even if he finishes last.

Scientists think bouts of panic in stressful situations can be traced to genetics. But don’t freak out. Biology is not necessarily destiny.

I've been told countless times that I take things way too seriously. I can't help my aggressive personality, but I do realize that I need to have more fun with life. Rather than stressing on the little things like I usually do. This picture is a reminder for me to find balance between stressing over things and enjoying them.

If you have had your pet for a while, then you may know all about pet allergies and effects they create for both parties. Pets, cats and dogs, can be allergic to a whole number of things that bring out skin problems like itching, shredding, small wounds on the skin, and fungus, aswell as watery eyes and sneezing fits.
I decided I'm getting a chocolate lab whenever I'm able to get my own dog :)

1962 Slaughterhouse Chandelier: Cattle walking the last mile to this slaughterhouse are treated to this dazzling, but incongruous display of light before the end in Gross-Umstadt near Darmstadt, West Germany, on November 29, 1962. The chandelier came from a nearby factory that didn’t have room to assemble it there, so they decided to assemble it in this slaughterhouse.

Safety bath for kids. You will be very suprised that such bucket is more safty than tub.... You can buy it in Helve Polska. http://www.helve.pl/kontakt.html

These babies are all in buckets. Is it a group bath time or something? Lol! Whatever it is, it's pretty cute to have all these babies together. :-)
Put a baby in a tub of water once they're big enough and let them splash around. So cute!
Baby Buckets: not sure what this is, but these babies are intense. Ha ha!

He is like saying, I am going to have this strawberry if its the last thing I do! Some one get a camera i am about to bite!!!!!! LOL! So cute I want a baby turtle so bad!!
These Funny Animals - Hannah says this turtle is a baby tortoise. She is eating strawberries for breakfast for babies like their baby food. She gets strawberry milk.
Baby animals! Tiny turtle about to eat a strawberry 5 times bigger than its head ... So cute! #Babyanimals #Babyturtle #turtles #JungleJim
OMG!! So Cute. I hope the Hare doesn't race by and grab his strawberry! Turtles are cute - but they will outlive your children so thing long and hard about the responsibility before you get one as a pet.
This reminds me of the baby turtle I once had. He loved strawberries just like this one. So cute
BABY TURTLE AND/OR TORTOISE IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER BECAUSE IT'S EATING A STRAWBERRY OMG SO CUTE

I love the idea of this photo, and while it's a beautiful bird, it is ONE bird replicated. I haven't yet been able to track it to its source, but if I do I'll modify this description.
a sweet image ~ I just hate to pipe-up, but it's a little regular (all the right-looking Bluebirds & all the left-looking Bluebirds are identical as far as I can see) to be an actual scene from the Natural World....thank you Photoshop, but still wonderful ! ♥
7 BLUE BUNTINGS bluebirds. I put this photo in a weird place in Pinterest... on my POWER BEYOND US board - DdO:) - http://www.pinterest.com/DianaDeeOsborne/power-beyond-us/ - WHY? Because God knows (literally) how much I love bluebirds of any species - finches, jays, tanagers. SO many times when I'm feeling down low low, a blue bird suddenly appears. Statistics: Too many times to be coincidence. A John 3:16 evidence that I'm one of the ALL who God dearly loves.
Don't know which board to pin these bluebirds onto: art or animals?
Blue Birds, nature never fails to bring to us its rare treats.

Although abandoned, abused and starving, when rescued still sweet. Dogs have a huge capacity to forgive. When I extend my hand, so does this doggie. Heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

So many wonderful dogs and cats are waiting in rescues, shelters, animal control facilities and foster homes... Make a difference in your own life. Adopt a friend. We brought in a 1 year old dog last week who was in need of a home and it has been a positive for all involved. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is ready to bring a pet into their life.
So many wonderful dogs and cats are waiting in rescues, shelters, animal control facilities and foster homes... Make a difference in your own life. Adopt a friend. <3 THIS IS A RESCUE THAT I HOPE EVERYONE TAKES TO HEART...
PLEASE STOP buying dogs from pet stores & breeders! Many of them DO end up in shelters. County animal shelters cannot deny any animal even if they don't have room. This makes euthanasia their only choice. Please adopt from the shelter! Those animals NEED you!
So many wonderful dogs are waiting in rescues, shelters, animal control facilities and foster homes... Make a difference in your own life. Adopt a friend.
Adopt a cat or dog from your local animal shelter or rescue... SAY NO TO PET SHOPS, PUPPY MILLS AND BACKYARD BREEDERS!!!!
So many wonderful dogs and cats are waiting in rescues, shelters, animal control facilities and foster homes.... Adopt a friend. <3
If you are an animal lover and you aren't adopting, helping a needy pet organization, or getting a friend to adopt - then who is going to do it? Everyone is busy. Some people haven't learned to control the problem, you have to spay and neuter your pet. That is why animal shelters are too full, and masses of pets die everyday. Pets deserve "forever homes", not to bounce around their whole lives and to never feel a part of a family. A pet has to be taught appropriate behavior just like a child, so
A local animal shelter is evacuating pets from an animal hoarder's house today. I am disgusted by the images I have seen coming out of there. I have always adopted dogs through rescue or through my local animal shelter and I have the BEST dogs in the entire universe. So please, if you are interested in getting a puppy or a kitten, skip the pet store. Avoid the newspaper and don't buy a pet from someone on Craigslist. Go to your local animal shelter and ADOPT your new family member. I promise, adopting a shelter pet will not be a mistake.
Save a life. Adopt a shelter pet. My Rascal is a rescue. Best thing ever. :)
doesn't this make you go "awwwww"
