Treasure hunt for kids

Often, the kids will play outside for hours, if I can just get them outside and started. This is a fun summer activity that never fails. My family loves making treasure hunts for each other. We hide a small toy or candy at the end, then make up clues to take us various places around the house or yard. If you want some help creating your own treasure/scavenger hunt, I love this one from iMom. You can print it out, hide the paper clues and go! ~ Emily

Save your Girls from Instagram

shared by Emily Lamb

Excerpt: As a media and body image expert, I can unequivocally state that a young girl’s access to Instagram is like a master class in objectification. Taught by influencers and peers with more power than any teacher, parent or advocate, she will learn at the speed of light that she is her body, and that her body is her ticket to happiness, fulfillment, power, and love.

Research echoes what our own real-life experience as women with bodies and access to social media makes very clear: Social media use – especially Instagram – is associated with high anxiety, depression, negative body image, bullying, loneliness, and envy.
