Parents Play a Huge Part in a Child’s Acting Career (part 2 of 2)

Just like applying for a job interview, leave the house early and make sure that you get there 30 minutes before the start of the audition. Once you get there, find the office so you can sign up your child. If it asks you to write down your child’s Social Security Number, don’t because this could easily be stolen and used by someone else.

Your child should be ready to perform the skit the moment their name is called so make him or her relax by letting them do something else like play with their PSP or Gameboy.  When it’s their turn, hand over to the casting director your child’s resume and headshot.

If it is a closed audition, you won’t be able to watch it so you will have to wait in the holding area until it is all over. If you are allowed to stay, just watch and keep quiet. There will be time to ask questions later when the child is done and you can talk about it once you walk out the door.

The support you give to your child must never cease regardless of the outcome of the audition. If the casting director says no, cheer them up and tell them that there will be other auditions in the future. Give them positive feedback of how they did up there then later on tell them where they can improve on.

If the casting director has accepted your child, be happy and be prepared to help them excel in their craft because this could be the start of their acting career which could continue well into adulthood. Should they become famous, one of the people they will never forget and have a debt of gratitude to is you, the parent because you encouraged and pushed them to become a star.

Parents Play a Huge Part in a Child’s Acting Career (part 1 of 2)

Some parents push their children into acting. But did you know that training the child how to sing or dance is just one of the things you have to work on?

This is because most casting directors look at other factors before accepting them. They look at the life of the child outside of acting and what extra curricular activities do they engage in. The ideal child actor they are looking for is someone relaxed and confident in his or her abilities.

But the casting director will also look at you, the parent because they know that when the child has a project, you will be the one to bring them to work. They will also need your help making the child memorize the lines in the script and encourage them to do their best in front of the camera.

Before you get the part, one major hurdle that every child has to face is the audition.

Some parents hear about the opening from an ad in the newspaper or in television. If you have an agent working for you, he or she will give you a call and tell you when and where it is going to take place.

Make sure that your child is wearing the right clothes. Ideally, this should be a shirt or blouse without any logo. Never let your child wear the part even if the ad states that they are looking for someone to play a certain character.

How to Make the Proper Golf Swing like the Pros (part 2 of 2)

You have to remember that the golf swing mentioned is far different when you are stuck in a sand trap because there is something blocking your way and you have to go over that. To do that, you have to hit the sand behind the ball using the club head. How far will the ball travel depends on the distance between the club head and the sand.

In both instances, a good golfer must be able to adapt with the surroundings and the weather. If the winds are strong, you cannot hit the ball at 7.5 or 12 degrees every time. The rule of thumb is that when the wind is coming from behind you, you have to use a club that has a greater lie angle. If the wind is coming to you from the front, you should use a club with a smaller lie angle. If you do not follow these rules, the ball will not travel far or you may end up with a slice or a hook.

Making the proper golf swing is not easy. If that was the case, almost everyone will be able to hit a hole in one. This is why professionals practice more than 8 hours a day because they know that there are things beyond their control and the weather is a very significant factor.

Now that you know what to do, it is just a matter of practice so you can put theory into practice. If you are still having a hard time, get some golf swing aids to help you out.

How to Make the Proper Golf Swing like the Pros (part 1 of 2)

The best way to start a golf game is with a good golf swing. That way, the ball will land near the hole so it is just a matter of putting it in.

In scientific terms, this is all about physics because the twisting swing produces torque on the club. When this happens, the kinetic energy that is collected for the club head will go to the club causing it to fly a great distance.

Professional golfers that make the ball go very far achieve a club head speed of about 100 miles per hour. Tiger Woods is an exception because he was once clocked at 125 miles per hour.

But the proper golf swing has another component and that is the lie angle. For those who don’t know what this is, it is the angle between the club shaft and the club face. If you have a golf swing monitoring machine, you will notice that most golfers strike the ball at 12 degrees. One scientist believes that players can do better if they hit the ball at a 7.5 degree lie angle.

To do that, you need to know the 4 elements.

First, at the back of the swing, you should stretch as far back and extend the range of motion while keeping your rotating torso directly over your right leg.

When you begin your swing, turn your torso quickly and press down on your right leg.

Next, drive through the ball using your hips, shoulders and wrists which will all help increase your ball speed.

Lastly, let the club head’s momentum extend to the follow through far around the back so you get to complete a smooth club head rotation.

Making Your Own Halloween Costume (part 2 of 2)

Making a pirate costume is probably the simplest of them all. For this you will need a pair of black or brown hospital scrubs. You then cut the top portion as well as the sleeves to create a vest. To make it look good, sketch and skill and crossbones onto white felt then paste this on the back of vest.

Now put on a white shirt and just wear a pair of jeans. Since not all pirates have wear a hat, you can wear a bandana instead just like some of the characters in Pirates of the Caribbean.

Lastly, to be a gorilla, you will need a lot of black fur and then sew this up to your top and bottom. Since the mask is hard to make, it is best to just get the costume from the store.

Once you have finished planning what you are going to wear, it is time now to look at what accessories there are available. If there are none, then you have to buy it at a thrift shop or consignment store.

Making your costume for Halloween will surely save you a lot of money since most costumes cost more than $20 a set. The best pat is that you don’t have to feel guilty when you decide to throw it away since you can probably make a new one the following year.

Making Your Own Halloween Costume (part 1 of 2)

You don’t need to buy a costume for Halloween when you can make one yourself. What is even better is the fact that you don’t have to be a tailor or seamstress to sew it together. You just have to be creative and use whatever you have in your closet or get a few of these items from the thrift shop.

Using your imagination and putting different items together is much better than tossing a sheet over your head and saying you’re a ghost.  Since Halloween doesn’t always have to be scary, think of other characters you can play like perhaps a clown, tin man, a pirate or a gorilla.

For a clown outfit, you should start by looking for a  colorful pair of sweats pants. If you don’t have any, see if there is some other baggy clothing lying around. Since clowns have big buttons on their coveralls, use colorful mesh dish scrubbers which can be found in your kitchen or the grocery.

For your hair, get a wig because it will take more than a day to get off the color on your hair. Get some white makeup for your face and then find a pair of goofy shoes to complete the outfit.

We all know tin man from the wizard of Oz. To dress up just like him, you will see cardboard which will be most of your costume. To make yourself look like him, you can spray the cardboard with silver spray paint or attach aluminum foil all around it.

For your hat, see if there is an old funnel in the garage. You will need black shoes for your feet and silver eye shadow for your face. Another option will be to make your own make up using silver face makeup with cold cream and food coloring. Don’t forget to put black eyeliner to draw lines from the corners of your mouth to your chin.

Chiropractic Care for Babies and Kids (part 2 of 2)

Effects on Kids

Subluxations among kids can lead to different body problems such as disabilities, disease and other signs and symptoms. Whenever nerve flow in the body is hindered, the brain will only get distorted messages, so the body cannot work excellently. Optimum level of health cannot be achieved. Some of the manifestations that parents should watch out for to determine if their child needs to be checked by a chiropractor include hyperactivity, stomach pain, fever, bed wetting, sore throat, colds, flu and poor posture.

Treatment Measures

Spinal problems in kids can be treated by first having the chiropractor conduct a thorough evaluation of the spine. A lot of these experts are experienced and trained to view pediatric spinal problems. Spinal adjustments may be done on infants and children, using light fingertip techniques to improve spinal structures and other malfunctions.

The pressure usually does not exceed 1 pound. It is usually enough to restore spinal joint mobility. Some of the things to expect are popping sounds as joints are moved.

Chiropractic on children and infants are not painful, although kids may find the first few sessions frightening. It is normal to see kids cry during visits, because of apprehensive feelings. Children only need fewer adjustments, compared to adults, since their spine is more mobile and can be corrected more easily.

The number of treatments will depend on the duration of the current condition. Kids will need to be re-evaluated every now and then to check progress, and if other therapies are required for full recovery.

Chiropractic Care for Babies and Kids (part 1 of 2)

Chiropractic has long been practiced, usually among adult patients. Some parents are also considering having their kids try the alternate treatment. You have to ensure that the approach is truly safe for the young ones to prevent unnecessary risks and dangers. Here are some details about the techniques, as well as some precautionary measures for you.

On Subluxation

Spinal bone misalignments can occur, thereby hindering the regular flow of nerve energy called subluxations. Several individuals still relate these with severe trauma. The spine is believed to be affected only after carrying very heavy items or being involved in a car accident. The truth is that daily activities among young children and infants can lead to subluxations. A lot of babies actually get subluxations before birth or during delivery.

Cesarean section is one of the modern medical techniques that create irregular strains on the vulnerable body of the baby, due to use of forceps and other materials and medications that induce delivery. On most occasions, physicians hold the baby in an upside down position, putting the tiny spine in a great deal of stress because of the stretched, twisted and tugged form. Subluxations will then ensue.

Caring for Kids

Parents are highly encouraged to have their kids visit the chiropractor's clinic at a very young age. The strain on your kids' spine will not end in the delivery room. Children are naturally energetic, playful and active, so they indulge in several physically straining activities like jumping, running and falling.

On the exterior, the body will only present bruises or small scratches. The interior, however, may present more serious problems because of considerable force acted upon it. Small bones that form the spinal column, can be forced to assume an unnatural position, thereby reducing the protection provided to the system.
