Here are three tips you can follow to make sure that a dentist will treat your child with care and sensitivity.
Find Out If They Allow Parents in the Room
It's long been a common practice that a parent is present during a child's initial dental exam. However, the debate continues as to whether or not a parent's presence or lack thereof during dental treatment makes a difference in a child's anxiety levels. In recent years, more pediatric dental practices are allowing it, even having parents hold smaller children instead of having them sit in a chair. Not all practices permit this, so if this is important to you, then make sure you ask about parental presence policies when reviewing potentia…

To help make sure that your child really enjoys the party, you're probably focused on preparation. These are a few tips to help you prep for your son or daughter's outdoor party. Clean up the Yard First of all, you'll want to clean up your yard.

Ready to Party? Why Fun and Safety Should Go Hand-in-Hand

Image
It can be tempting to have children be allowed at the party. You might want your staff to be able to bring their kids and have them socialize without having to get a babysitter. However, understand that if something happens to the child, such as a slip or a cut at the office, then you could have liability concerns to worry about.

Set Expectations
Consider sending out a memo before the party, at least a week before the event. Set the expectations of what people can bring and how they can behave. You want them to let loose, but you don't want anyone to go overboard. With children, it can be helpful to let parents know if there will be entertainment or not, as this could be a way that they would decide whether or not they will bring them. If you’re going to be renting out a bounce house or other similar entertainment for kids, be sure to let people explicitly know! 
Alcohol
Whether or not to allow alcohol is one of the bigger decisions you will have to make. If you do allow it, co…

Party favors are an excellent way to thank your guests and to add a personalized touch to any event. There are so many different ways to do party favors these days that your imagination is the limit. Here are some ideas to get you started. Personal Touch When thinking of favors for your next party, consider providing guests with items personalized for the occasion.

This will help create a memorable experience and make even a few small treats and toys feel like a grand prize. When personalizing, you merely need to pick out something you like, add a saying, date, or name and ta-da! You'll have a unique piece just for your party.
