Discuss a plan and practice it.[2] Create a list with contact information, insurance information, and in case of emergency out of town contacts. Store important documents, just in case.[3] Make copies of birth certificates, insurance information, and social security cards to bring with you if you need to evacuate.
Set up means of communication.[3] Make sure everyone in the family knows how to get in contact with everyone else. Build or designate a safe room.[1] Rooms that can typically be used include basements, garages, interior rooms on the first floor, etc. Arrange and secure household items.[3] Arrange furniture so that it is away from windows, mirrors or glass. A tornado watch indicates that conditions are right for tornado development and tornadoes are possible in your area. A tornado warning indicates that a tornado has been seen in your area or that radar indicates the presence of a tornado.
A tornado emergency means that a tornado warning has been issued and it is heading toward a densely populated area. A severe thunderstorm warning means that a severe thunderstorm has been spotted in your area, and you should take appropriate precautions and watch for tornadoes.
Keep maps of your local area handy, so that you can identify the location of a storm when it is reported on the radio. If you are in a structure, find the most interior room, on either the first floor or in the basement.
Shut off utilities.[3] Since gas leaks can be extremely dangerous, the first thing you should do once you have handled the first step is turn off the gas, water, and electricity. Inspect the damage.[3] Use a flashlight, not a torch or candle, to inspect your home, as there might be a gas leak.
Stay alert.[1] Make sure that the storm has cleared out of you way before return home or leaving your house to assess damage. Safely clean up what you can.[1] Once it is safe to return home or come out, begin cleaning up what you can. At a minimum, have a medium sized container, a whistle, a small self-powered radio, food, extra clothes for everyone in the family and anything for pets or even children.
Inform your children about tornadoes, so they will know some of the signs, and will stay alert. Never go outside during a tornado to witness or calculate the distance of the tornado from your current location.
If you have time, close blinds and curtains to help keep glass from flying into your house. Tornadoes usually last for about 20 seconds, but some rare ones have lasted more than an hour.
A waterproof basement is probably one of the best places to hide, but if you don't have one then any room without windows is good. Do what you can to bring things so that they are in the safe shelter, but move quickly and stay calm.
If you are in a car when a tornado hits get out and find a ditch, lie down in the ditch and cover your head.
Tornadoes are sometimes obscured by clouds or rain, and there is sometimes no visible funnel cloud. Meet Lois, a wikiHowian from California who has been active in the community for over 9 years. After a long and maybe arduous period of time wearing your braces, you are now nearing the moment of truth. It's possible that your teeth may have moved around unexpectedly between trips to the orthodontist. The best way to deal with this is to speak and sing a lot so that you get used to the retainer. It does for some people because the orthodontist uses a wrench type tool to pull the bracket off.
Most people do need a retainer to help their teeth stay straight but if your orthodontist insists that you don't need a retainer, then you probably won't need it.
If you don't wear your retainer, your teeth will progressively shift to the way they originally were. Have a discussion with your orthodontist about the pros and cons of the different kinds of retainers. Meet Alabaster, a wikiHowian of over 2 years who enjoys helping out new users and giving articles bold makeovers for helpfulness and accuracy.
Few Organizations have deep experience in planning for a successful Service Catalog project.
The need for a retirement plan is common knowledge, but less than half of American workers know how much they need to have to retire comfortably. Learn basic investment principles that can help you make the most of your retirement money, including creating a regular saving program, calculating your net worth and diversifying your investment portfolio to reduce your risk and increase your potential return.
Meet Adelaide, a wikiHowian who has been a community member for over three years and has started 186 articles. So, your child has proven that they are mature enough to enter the (big and scary) world of smartphone ownership. While this momentous event should be approached with great care and consideration, following a few Tech-Smart guidelines should make the process relatively painless, and can even create the opportunity to strengthen and develop your relationship. My line of work allows me to travel with the core goal of empowering parents, teachers and students to balance the benefits and risks of tech. The first is that your child should never be the first in their social peer group to get a device, nor the last.
The second is that their age is not nearly as important as the preparation that comes before handing over the device, and the degree of engagement that you exhibit throughout their ownership. When you chat with these parents, ask if they have any expectations or rules in place with their child, and (if you feel comfortable asking) how they enforce them. Once it is clear that the device in question is, in fact, trending amongst your childa€™s peer group, discuss why they want the device and what they hope to get out of it. This is also an opportune time to express some of your concerns about this new responsibility. Although a contract might sound a bit formal, putting an agreement down in writing will promote a healthy conversation about expectations and clarify rules for the privilege of technology ownership.
Writing up this contract is an essential element to prepare your child for smartphone ownership. Any adjustment of independence for children should be met with an equal adjustment in parental oversight.
A little more challenging is setting a schedule that you can expect your child to adhere to.
The OurPact app allows you to schedule when apps and Internet are available on your childa€™s device.

Recent studies suggest that while nearly 65% of children grades 6-8 reported seeing images or videos that disturbed them, only 15% of parents reporting such incidents for their children. Handing over a device, and the responsibility that follows (for both parents and children) can be rough waters to navigate.
By following these Tech Smart guidelines you are helping your child maximize the benefits of technology use while building a positive relationship with them.

Part of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes are rotating, whirling winds that appear in a funnel shape. Make sure everyone in the family knows where to go, what to take, and how to be safe if a tornado hits. Having a means of communication or information (radio, satellite phone, etc.) is also important to include.
The room should have no windows, be anchored to the ground to avoid uplift, and be strong enough to withstand any flying debris it may come in contact with. Tornadoes usually only develop in the presence of thunderstorms (though the thunderstorm may be some distance away from you), so lightning, rain, and hail (especially if occurring after a tornado watch or warning has been issued) should put you on guard. Even if you know the signs of a tornado, you can't always rely on your own eyes and ears alone to know if one is coming.
This will give you a real-time look at storm cells in your area, and because you can see the intensity and direction of movement of storm cells and systems relevant to your home, you can judge more accurately when precautions should be taken.
If you hear a tornado watch or a severe thunderstorm watch, you should pay special attention to weather conditions.
Do not stand by windows, or near anything that could possibly hit you (bookcases, chairs, etc.). Never leave your shelter until you are sure that the storm has passed and that it is safe to follow the next directions.
Note all damage, but mostly look for any structural damage that could be an immediate harm to your family. If you or your family need medical attention or suspect structural damage that may be threatening in your home, seek a center. Move hazardous objects with care, and make a note for your insurance company on what has been damaged.
If your family and property were unharmed, be thankful, but remember that not everyone was so lucky. Often, tornadoes drop down vertically and lift straight back up, so you will not always observe them coming toward you.
That actually happens sometimes, but it's still a good idea to seek shelter just in case it does.

Select a TopicRemember a Science Fair Project is a test you do to find an answer to a question, not just showing what you know about something.2. It's important to be sure about when your braces will be coming off, so you can prepare yourself. Although your orthodontist might have told that you will be getting your braces removed in your next visit, there is a chance that when you arrive they will tell you the removal has to be postponed. Throughout the whole period you have been wearing braces you should have maintained a high level of dental hygiene. To remove your braces your orthodontist will use special pliers to gently squeeze each individual bracket. After the braces are off, there will be some left over residue of the glue or cement on your teeth. After your braces have come off and your teeth have been cleaned from the excess glue, your orthodontist will most likely begin to make a mould for your retainer. Getting a retainer can be a little trying and take a bit of time to get used to, but it's an important part of straightening your teeth.
You will still need to visit your orthodontist regularly once you have had your braces removed and are wearing your retainer.[23] they will check up on your teeth to make sure they are staying in shape and your smile is looking great. More than 60 percent are planning to rely primarily on Social Security for their retirement income needs. Most financial experts recommend saving 10 to 15 percent of your income for retirement, beginning when you are in your 20s. Whether you put your money into a 401k, IRA or company pension plan, budget an amount each month that will go directly into your retirement investment. If your company matches funds you put into your retirement account, that is considered free money to be used after retirement. A big part of learning how to prepare a retirement plan is studying the various investment vehicles at your disposal to find the best ones for your budget and goals. If you are unsure of the tax implications of retirement accounts, or need more information about retirement investments, seek the assistance of a professional tax accountant or financial planner.
She enjoys being a Welcomer, New Article Booster, and Admin, and she helps a lot of people through the Help Team.
In that time, she has started over 2,100 articles (many of which have been featured) and has been immeasurably helpful around the site, constantly performing “behind-the-scenes” tasks to keep the advice here accurate and organized, as well as helping out on various international wikiHows. Over my years of providing support and training, I am asked infinite questions about digital parenting. Giving a 15-year-old an iPhone with no rules or boundaries is far more problematic than giving a 10 year old the same device alongside ongoing conversations and clear expectations. A few easy phone calls or texts to fellow parents will help to clarify the prevalence of device ownership and allow you to make an informed decision. You arena€™t alone in the concern that you feel, and it will be good to know where your childa€™s friends stand in their privileges. After handing that phone over, you and your child will form a new relationship surrounding the use of that device, for better or worse. A good answer might sound like, a€?We have a chat in our whole class, and ita€™s an opportunity to discuss homeworka€? or, a€?My friends from camp are posting pictures and I want to be part of ita€?.
I suggest asking your child to look this contract over, and then edit it to come up with a first draft. Putting together this contract should be a collaborative process that fosters communication and culminates with a mutually acceptable agreement. Trust is key, but it is your responsibility and right to be involved in your childa€™s online habits and activities. On the iPhone, for example, you can go to Setting a€“ General a€“ Restrictions, where a host of content and app restrictions are available to meet your individual family values and norms. Most device-owning kids report staying up late as a result of their device use, or being distracted during the school day.

For example, their device can be scheduled to be off during the school day as well as from bedtime to the morning.
Technology is a constantly changing landscape, and so ongoing communication and involvement is critical to ensuring your first four steps are lasting and meaningful.
Ita€™s important that you both stay on the same page, and the best way to do so is by engaging in ongoing dialogue. While as parents we always need to be aware of the potential harms of technology, ita€™s also important to keep perspective. We have great programs, thought-provoking data, and actionable tips for parents just like you! Anyone, such as a babysitter, that your children might be with during the emergency should be included on this list. Any first aid supplies, clothes, and toiletries that you may need should be stored along with flashlights, batteries, etc.
Be aware that water may accompany the storm, so be cautious when using below ground rooms, as they may collect water. Listen to local radio stations or watch local TV to stay informed, especially during conditions that are likely to form tornadoes. High winds can still be dangerous, so do not go outside if debris is still moving in the air or on the ground. Never light a match or use a lighter if you suspect that there may be a gas leak, or if you have not already turned off the utilities.
These often have supplies, but it's important to bring what emergency supplies you can with you.
Stay tuned to the radio for more information on the situation in your town or neighborhood. Even though you might want to bring your favorite book or little toy, you can live without it. She is proud of helping lots of people; she has started 223 articles and reached over 24 million readers with her advice. To prepare for this, find out more about the process by which your braces are removed, and what to expect after they have been removed. You can use these as a "before" picture and compare it to the new you after you have had your braces removed. Without it, your teeth, which are still very moveable thanks to the years of pressure from the braces, might start to slide back to where they were before you had braces. So don't wrap your retainer up in a napkin on your plate, or you you might accidentally throw it away!
The truth is that it is never too early to begin building a nest egg by learning how to prepare a retirement plan that will adequately cover your expenses throughout the later years of your life.
If you didn't begin to plan for your retirement that early, there are also many good retirement calculators available to help you determine what your specific saving needs might be.
This amount should be based on your previous calculations that determine exactly how much you will need to live on after retirement. In addition, you will receive tax benefits on your own contributions into the retirement investment. These principles are best learned through an investment adviser who specializes in retirement planning, but you can find plenty of good information through the Internet as well. When cooked, these beans have a soft texture that blends well into creamy style dishes and their delicate flavour makes them a perfect addition to many soups, salads, casseroles, and bean dishes.
The success or failure of all partnerships is greatly dependent on clear expectations; knowing what is and is not appropriate and required from both parties is key. This process will empower your child with a sense of responsibility and open an important dialogue allowing you both to explain your opinions.
Scheduled down times can only be overridden within the parent app, and should your child need some extra leg room, the opportunity for a relationship building conversation about needs and expectation is always there. This will help ensure your child feels comfortable communicating both their positive and negative experiences with technology, and will allow you to address challenges head-on. These new devices and innovations allow our children unlimited opportunities to learn and connect, and offer perfect circumstances to develop trust and communication skills.
In order to protect yourself and your family from this natural disaster, follow the instructions in this how-to guide.
If possible, find one with backup battery power and a tone-alert feature, which automatically notifies you when the National Weather Service issues a severe weather watch or warning for your area.
Always follow the orders of public officials when doing so, to make sure that you are being constructive and not damaging the situation further. She enjoys the fun of editing and how helpful it allows her to be, and she says she is constantly learning new things there. Getting braces is a big deal, and so is getting them taken off, so you should document this transition in your life.
Most often the bracket will come off in one piece, and they will repeat this for your whole mouth.
The steps for retirement planning may take some time and effort, but the rewards are far-reaching when you can spend your retirement years in comfort and security. The final figure will probably be around 70 to 90 percent of your pre-retirement income, if you want to enjoy a similar standard of living throughout your life. Taking the money out of your paycheck before it even reaches your checking account helps prevent the temptation to spend your retirement money on anything else. As with any contract, ita€™s likely the initial offer your child hands over will be rejected.
