Preparing for Your Child's College Education

Having children is an amazing experience. It can be a joy watching them learn, grow, fall in love and do all of the other things that make life worth living. However, raising children is also a huge responsibility. There are many ways that your life changes when you decide to have children. One of the biggest issues that parents have is the financial burden that having children can create. It definitely costs a lot of money to have children. This is definitely the case if you plan on sending your child to college. An education is the greatest gift you can give to your children. Here are some ways that you can prepare yourself to provide your child with a college education.

1. Start saving for your child's college education as soon as he or she is born.
This might sound a little extreme to you. However, it is never too early to get started on saving for the massive cost of college. There will be times when other expenses need to be dealt with. Therefore, you will not be able to save as much as you had hoped that month. This is why it is so vitally important to put a little money away every chance that you get. Open a savings account specifically for your child's college education. It is better to have this money separate from your own savings. It is critical that you do not use the money you have saved for your child's college education for other things. Do not touch this money for any reason. Your own savings should be used for emergencies. However, your child's money should be left alone.

2. Enroll your child in a college preparatory school.
Money is not the only thing you will need to be concerned about regarding your child getting a good college education. Your child will also need to obtain certain skills that will help him or her to succeed in the very demanding and rigorous academic world of college. This is why you should seriously consider sending your child to a college preparatory school. This type of school will give your child an education that is far superior to a regular public school. Your child will be introduced to a wide variety of subjects. This will make it easier for him or her to decide on a college major. Landon School is a college preparatory school that has been giving kids a solid education for many decades. You should strive to send your child to an academic institution that is the same quality as Landon School.

3. Get advice about colleges from other parents.
You may not have gone to college yourself. Your child might be the first person in your family to go to college. If this is the case, you may need some help finding a college that is perfect for your child's career interests. You should talk to other parents who have gone to college themselves or sent their own children to college. Find out about their experiences while they were going to college. You should also determine the method they used to finally decide which college they were going to attend. You might also be able to pick up some tips about the college application process.

New Dole GO Berries

DOLE Berries has a smart solution for busy strawberry lovers in Minneapolis-St. Paul looking to enjoy their favorite fresh fruit snack on the go. The leading berry provider is launching DOLE GO Berries!, three snack-size packages that snap apart. Each contains 4 ounces of fresh DOLE Strawberries designed to leverage the growing mobile snacking trend. Ventilated for freshness and easy rinsing, the proprietary package is the first to provide “snap-rinse-go” convenience. Minneapolis-St. Paul-area retailers are among the first to offer the innovative new product, which is being rolled-out regionally before expected national distribution later this year.

“While fruit remains America’s top daytime snack choice, there hasn’t been an easy way for consumers to enjoy their favorite berries away from home – until now,” said CarrieAnn Arias, VP of marketing for Dole Fresh Vegetables and Berries. “DOLE GO Berries! allows busy consumers to combine their preference for fresh strawberries with out-of-the-home snacking convenience for the first time.” As a leader in fresh Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries and Blackberries, Dole plans to roll-out other GO Berries! varieties in the future. Dole research show that 80% of those trying GO Berries! would purchase the product, and 60% of berry consumers would buy GO Berries! in detachable snack packs in addition to the customary 1-pound clamshells.

“We’re looking to expand how – and where – berry lovers enjoy their favorite fruit,” said Arias. “Simply snap-off one of the snack packs, rinse right in the package and enjoy the goodness of DOLE Strawberries wherever you go. GO Berries! satisfies the growing preference to take berry snacking outside the home and offers a unique, fun, fresh and healthy alternative to nutrition and energy bars.” DOLE GO Berries! will start arriving in stores throughout Minneapolis-St. Paul in mid-March at a price comparable to DOLE Strawberries in traditional 1-pound packages. Berry lovers can find them in the refrigerated fruit and berry section alongside other Dole berries.

In addition to the 12-ounce DOLE GO Berries!, customers can choose DOLE Strawberries in 1-pound and 2-pound clamshells; DOLE Blueberries in 6-ounce, pint, 18-ounce and 24-ounce clamshells; and DOLE Raspberries and DOLE Blackberries in 6-ounce and 12-ounce clamshells.

Busted: You're Definitely Guilty of These Home Security Bad Habits

Is your home safe? Sure it's baby-proofed from top-to-bottom, and it may feel safe when you're at home, but is it really secure? No matter how safe your home feels, you're likely guilty of these home security bad habits.

Luckily, bad habits can be broken. Here are the safe solutions to break your home security bad habits.

Problem: Out-of-Date Smoke Detectors

Did you smoke detector go kaput years ago? If you took the batteries out to stop the beep, beep, beeping, and never replaced them, you're practically committing a home security crime. It is critical to have working smoke detectors in your home 24/7 in order to keep your family safe. Unfortunately, many homes are equipped with out-of-date detectors.

Solution: Nest Protect

Equip your home with a device that works as hard as you do to keep your family safe. Nest Protect is a smoke and carbon monoxide alarm that speaks and even alerts your smartphone. When the alarm goes off, and your mind starts to race, Nest Protect calmly alerts you where the problem is located and whether it is smoke or carbon monoxide. Its industrial-grade smoke sensor regularly tests itself, so you don't have to, and lasts for up to 10 years. And you won't have to deal with that annoying beeping. Nest Protect can be quieted from your phone via the companion app's silence feature.

Problem: No Security Cameras

Criminals avoid homes with security systems. It's a fact. The University of North Carolina found through research that 60 percent of burglars stated that the presence of a security system influenced their choice to target a home. If your home isn't equipped with a security system, your family is at risk.

Solution: High-Definition Security Camera Systems

Home security camera systems can reduce the chances of your home becoming a target. Lorex Technology offers a vast range of both indoor and outdoor home security camera systems that can keep your home protected. Sometimes break-ins are inevitable, despite preventative measures; criminals are bold. However, with a security camera system in place, you can catch a criminal in the act, as many of today's top security systems offer high-definition and even a color picture.

Problem: Unlocked Doors

Unlocked doors are a big problem. Nearly 30 percent of burglars enter through a home's unlocked doors or windows, according to data reported by SafeWise. It happens all too often -- you're in a rush, your hands are full, your kids are fussy and the door slams behind you, and you go on your way. Then, 10 miles down the road, kids in tow, you panic. "Did I leave the doors unlocked?" Never second-guess yourself again.

Solution: Smart Locks

We can do almost anything via our smartphones, and that goes for locking our doors, too. With the August Smart Lock, you can always rest assured that your home is secure and that the doors are locked. The August Smart Lock makes your smartphone a key, allowing you to control your locks from anywhere. You can even use the app to unlock the door for guests while you're away or create virtual keys for the babysitter, for example, and even keep track of who comes and goes -- all from the palm of your hand.
