August is Child Support Awareness Month

August is Child Support Awareness Month

August is Child Support Awareness month, reminding parents that child support is crucial to the financial security and well-being of approximately 8,000 children and families in Yolo County.

“Children are the best part of ourselves – the sum of our past and the promise of our future, the guarantee that our lives and values and dreams will flourish long after we are gone.”  With that statement, then President Bill Clinton made an official proclamation in 1995 that recognized the month of August as Child Support Awareness Month.

Children grow and thrive with the commitment of family to provide for their emotional and physical needs, as well as opportunities for enriching their minds. This is especially important when a family’s structure changes. For 1.3 million children in California, meeting those needs requires the commitment of child support professionals throughout the state.

Fun Ways to Keep Kids Hydrated

Fun Ways to Keep Kids Hydrated

Elizabeth Leader Smith

Strawberry-Watermelon Water with Basil

I’ve read that children need between five and eight cups of water each day — and children who are very active may need more. So wait…how much water exactly should my kids drink? It’s a bit confusing.

Here’s what I do. I have water accessible nearly everywhere my kids go, and I offer them water a lot. However, I don’t count every ounce of water my kids drink because I make sure that they are getting hydration from plenty of other sources too.

A Toast To Drinks Other than Plain Water

You can prevent taste bud boredom by simply flavoring water with lemon, lime, mint or a little 100% fruit juice. ... Read More
