Summer Allergies

When most people think of allergy season, they think spring. And while spring time allergens cause discomfort for over 50 million people in the U. S. alone, summer can be just as debilitating for those who struggle with summer allergens. Here are four of the most common summer allergy triggers and a solution for minimizing their effect. Pollen-Just as in the spring, summer’s biggest offender is pollen. But by summer the trees are done with pollination and it is the grass and weeds that step up to take their place. Grass is the most popular ground cover and is next to impossible to avoid. There are many different kinds of grass that can cause problems including well known varieties such as Timothy, Red Top, Orchard, Blue, Bermuda, and Sweet Vernal. Weeds-Weed pollination usually begins in August and can continue through late fall into November. Ragweed is probably the most well known followed closely by Sagebrush, Pigweed, Cockle weed and numerous others. For both pollens and weeds, dry windy days are the times when the air tends to be thick with pollen. It attaches to clothes, hair and any other handy surface in hopes of finding fertile ground to begin the cycle again. Mold-Mold occurs naturally outside and can only survive if and when it finds moisture. Landscaping that allows water to stand, or areas that don’t drain naturally, and piles of leaves are all places where these spores will thrive.

Books: Teaching Our Children about Careers

Christianbook.com has a great catalog of books for both parents and children. Here are some I found that could help you begin a reading program that engages and inspires questions about career choices in young ones. For parents I found Achieving Your Dreams: Starting Early to Help African American Children Develop a Vision of Their Dream Careers by Cajetan Ngozika Ihewulezi (Tate Publishing, 2009). There is also a similar book for Latino American children. Want to read to your small one? Lyle at the Office is a book by Bernard Waber that follows the work adventures of the Lyle the crocodile as he takes a job at an advertising agency. Do you have a tween? Anastasia’s Chosen Career by Lois Lowry seems like a winner. This fiction book is about a 7th grader who has to do an assignment requiring research into careers. Here are a few more books I found interesting from other sources. Career Day by Anne Rockwell The Berenstain Bears: Jobs Around Town Richard Scarry’s What Do People...
