Parents: Preparing Young Children for the Move

Over the years, many studies have been done to define and rank which typical life experiences cause the greatest amount of stress for the average adult. For anyone who has had to make a move, it probably comes as no surprise that moving ranks within the top 10 of the most stressful events… and once you add children to the equation, the stress level only increases.

To help parents prepare their young children for a move, and also help them adjust to their new home and community once the move has taken place, we have compiled the best tips from experts in the industry into a FREE report titled “Parents: Preparing Young Children for the Move.”

Tips on Making the Move Easier on Your Pets

Moving can be hard on everyone involved: adults, kids, and yes… even your pets! While your pet may not understand exactly what is going on, they can sense the stress (good or bad), that the whole family is experiencing. Add to that the fact that animals are creatures of habit and do not like changes to their usual routine, and you can understand why they become so confused.

Your pets can also become quite anxious when all of a sudden, they see their human family busily throwing everything around them into boxes. Animals, just like people, can behave rather badly when under stress, so we need to do all we can to help them feel secure throughout the moving process.

With this in mind, we have gathered helpful moving tips from industry experts that any pet owner can easily follow, and have created a FREE Special Report, entitled, “Pet Owners – Tips to Making Your Move Easier on Your Pets.”

Reducing Screen Time Can be Beneficial

There is no doubt that technologically advanced homes provide amazing opportunities, both within the household walls and from outside the home, in terms of convenience, safety, efficiency, and learning.
 
However, there are also strong arguments for reducing our
reliance on technology, especially when it involves screen viewing. From smartphones to computers to big-screen entertainment centres, our preoccupation with using technology is reducing our desire to get active and stay physically fit.
 
Furthermore, experts are suggesting that excessive screen time is negatively affecting our behaviour, possibly on a permanent basis. With statistics suggesting that less screen time can result in better sleep, less stress, greater focus and improved sociability, it might be worth considering a reduction in the use of technology by avoiding electronic devices at certain times of the day, or for a given day of the week.

6 Mistakes to Avoid When Moving to a Larger Home

A new report has just been released which identifies the 6 most common and costly mistakes that homebuyers make when moving up to a larger home.

Unlike the experience of buying a first home, when you’re looking to move-up, and already own a home, there are certain factors that can complicate the situation. It’s very important for you to understand these issues before you list your home for sale.

Not only is there the issue of financing to consider, but you also have to sell your present home at exactly the right time in order to avoid either the financial burden of owning two homes or, just as bad, the dilemma of having no place to live during the gap between closings.

In answer to this issue, industry insiders have prepared a FREE Special Report entitled “6 Mistakes to Avoid When Moving Up to a Larger Home“.

The information contained in this report will help you make informed choices before you put your home on the market in anticipation of moving to a larger home.

Order this report NOW and find out what you need to know to make your move up to a larger home worry-free and without complications.

Pressure-Treated Decking Materials and Surface Treatments

It’s been over a decade since arsenic was banned from use in pressure-treated lumber for residential and recreational projects. But, only recently have consumers been offered alternatives that would still resist rot, fungi and insect infestation.
 
These more contemporary pressure treatments for decking and other outdoor applications, known as ACQ (alkaline copper quaternary) and CA (copper azole), are predominantly chosen for their performance standards, compared to untreated wood species. But, perhaps one of the most interesting and desirable reasons for choosing the new pressure-treated lumber has to do with colour, as newer treatments offer durable lumber available in a natural-looking brown.
 
Sold by different names in different regions, this lumber is a welcome option, as it does not require a paint or thick opaque stain to cover an undesirable wood tone. Instead, semi-transparent stains can be used to give the warm brown hue protection without a great deal of colour distortion.
 
So, if you’re looking for outdoor wood decking, landscaping or furniture material, ask about the range of options available for safe, long-lasting and eye-catching lumber.
