Let’s not forget about the huge influx of cyber bullying and social media addiction. So when considering a new phone for your tween or teen, how about getting back to the basics with a simple phone that brings peace of mind.

My son is a teen with Autism. He started ABA therapy just before schools closed due to Coronavirus. Since he started ABA, I’ve been slowly adding toys to our household.

ABA Therapy 

I am so thankful I found an ABA Therapy company as it was a very difficult journey. I had to find a company that had openings, took our insurance, and served his age group! I found this to be very difficult. I called and emailed several companies over a period of a few years. There were times when I got discouraged because I always received a “no.”

First Tool For Kid’s Hair- Wave Glyder

My son kept talking about WAVES. What the heck are waves? I had no clue and couldn’t help the kid. I watched a couple of videos and gave up. I told him to brush his hair forward, but we both were lost.

As a mom, I felt like I let him down a bit because he wanted to look good, and I had to know idea how to help him. I took him to the barber hoping to get help there, but I was just talked down too, but that is okay I was on a mission. Knowing my son, he wasn’t going to give up, so I did more research, and I found a product that might just work- the WAVE GLYDER!

Wave Glyder Tools for Kids Hair

The Wave Glyder is the ultimate hair smoother. It is designed to lay down your hair & accentuate your wave pattern, not replace the brush. When we got the Wave Glyder, it seems very simple to use, and my son was on a mission to get waves. He had his Wave Glyder with him everywhere he went!

I can see how this tool would help out any parent get the look of WAVES their kid might want! The Wave Glyder is for any age, but it is a tool for moms to help with their kid’s hair.

Second Tool For Kid’s Hair- Curl Peace

Now onto my daughter! WOW now, this was harder for me. I couldn’t just comb her hair into a ponytail and on with our day. Nope! She wanted defined curls, and she was on a mission. My daughter, as she got older, took it upon herself to learn how to do her hair- thank goodness because I barely had time to do my hair.

But one of the issues we had was the right product that would work with her hair. We have gone through so many products and tools for her hair and didn’t get the result she wanted. Then I came across Curl Peace from Just For Me hair products.

Curl Peace is a fantastic tool for Kid's Hair

OMG…I hit the motherload of products that came in handy! Every product in this collection is fantastic! My daughter uses Curl Peace every day to style her hair. She was able to get the curls she wanted, the softness she also wanted, and her hair is not one big FRIZZ BALL (her words)! Her natural hair was so beautiful, and I loved how she embraced her hair and made it what she wanted.

Tools for Kids Hair

Thank goodness for Curl Peace, and I highly recommend this for moms who need help take the stress out of styling-tug resistant, tender-heads can get back to the fun and games. The products are formulated with gentle ingredients like Shea Butter, Raw Honey, and Marshmallow Root Extract, Curl Peace™ leaves kid’s kinks, coils, and curls tangle-free, moisturized and soft.

No one enjoys breathing in your own stale air or the amount of sweat that’s accumulated under your face mask. Not to mention what your plans are for all the stock piled face masks when the world finally reaches a safer social climate.

Many states, (like mine), still have a mandated mask requirement; so wearing a face mask has become a part of our daily routine. Over the past few months I have worn just about every type of face mask. By far our family’s FAVORITE has to be the tubular style bandannas from Hoo-Rag!
