Your child may be the first human to live to 150

Your child may be the first human to live to 150 Scientists and health professionals believe the first human to live to 150 has either recently been born or is about to be. This means your little bundle of joy might be the first person to celebrate their own sesquicentennial.

If recent research is to be believed, it likely won’t be the toys you got or things you played with, but the vacations you took with your family and experiences you had. New research shows that it is our experiences, notably the time we spend with our families when young children, that shape us and our lives.

A study using data to find the 10 best toys to calm down infants during a tantrum When you’ve got two crying infants on your hands like we often do, you look for whichever toys will calm them down the fastest. We’ve got an array of toys in our happy child arsenal, but they aren’t all equally effective during a tantrum. In order to find the ones that are most effective, I began tracking the time it takes to take a child out of their tantrum with them. Luckily with twins, I was able to get a lot of...
