Masha and The Bear (Episode 17).



 Masha and The Bear (Episode 17).

This is a Russian Cartoon with 450+ million views. It had me laughing most of the way through even though it's in a foreign language. I'm posting it for those two reasons. LOL.

Toddlers Regulate Their Behavior To Avoid Making Adults Angry.


Watch this video.  It's pretty interesting.  About a toddler and how he regulates his behavior based on the cue of adults to keep the peace.  Read the article below and watch the video.  


Researchers at the Institute of Learning & Brain Sciences at the University of Washington have discovered something that may surprise many parents. Toddlers are more intuitive than we may think, and spend time “regulating” their behavior to get the best outcome to certain situations, and depending on the emotional cues of the adults around them.

To put it more clearly: Even at two years old, kids pick up on the attitudes and behaviors exhibited by everyone around them, and look for ways to “keep the peace.”

In this fascinating experiment, one researcher shows a cute little boy a blue box, and joyfully and enthusiastically encourages him to play with the toy — and he happily obliges.

Moments later, another researcher walks in and sits down next to the boy as he’s shown a second toy. Before he can play with it, however, the second researcher loudly proclaims her annoyance at the toy.

When the boy is finally given the second toy to play with, his expression says it all: I won’t play with this – even though I want to – because it seems like this toy makes her mad.

This is such an interesting look into incredibly smart, incredibly intuitive child brain! Parents, this is more proof of how powerful our roles are in our children’s lives.

My Word Shall Not Return To Me Void.



Isaiah 55:11-12 In Song.

Isaiah 55:11-12 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands

I actually totally did this as a kid, verse 11 anyway, I musta been like 9-10 years old.  I must of heard the scripture somewhere and imitated it. What I did as a kid in primary school was to somehow send my word out.  Then what happened is it came back and someone had voided it but they were lying.  I had to add something to my word to make it so it couldn't be voided by cheating.  I was like "What.... Void..... My word shall not return to me void" I was sending out my word to do good things.  But alas this was along time ago.  To my thinking I was doing something original that hadn't been done.  It's only now I discover the scripture almost word for word exactly what I was doing.  In this scripture I have imitated.

I added this cause I thought the tune was kinda catchy and also this is the scripture I have been meditating on for the last couple days.

Language Chameleon Polyglot.



This Guy can speak 9 languages.  If I had started early enough I could've maybe learned one language.  But not 9.  There is now basically no way for me to ever speak another language as I am now deaf and have Alzheimers bought on by the NZ and USA Govts of course but no one believes that do they.

O well some people are just smart I guess.  Not me though.  I'm posting this as something that interested me as part of the new posting more of what i've been reading and watching theme on this website.
