Behavior of a Stressed Out Toddler. Little children do not understand what's going on when they're worried about mom coming home late than usual or Dad's implicit instructions not to disturb him when he's busy. Even a change to the big bed can be an earth shaking event when children are so attached to their cribs. Worry and anger can erupt in unusual behavior such as not wanting to spend time with the other kids, suffer frequent headaches and stomachaches. Changes in sleeping patterns, soiling and bedwetting are also symptoms of stress. You might observe her fear of loud noises, tantrums, nightmares or wakefulness at night - these should alert you to your child's emotional state.
What do you think of when you think of a rocking chair? Grandpa rocking on the porch enjoying his after dinner pipe of tobacco? Maybe you get a picture of Grandma sitting by the fire knitting furiously and then falling asleep with the cat on her lap? What about a mother nursing her new born baby until the baby eventually falls to sleep (or the mother does). There is no other piece of furniture which quite evokes our memories to the same extent as the humble rocking chair, many illustrators even picture Santa Claus is a rocking chair, having forty winks before setting off back up the chimney. This chair has been an inherent part of our history and, as with so many other things has evolved a long way from its crude beginnings.
Rockers are made of several parts or components that contribute to its overall design and functionality. The curved pieces of wood are called rockers, and this serves as the main base of your rocking chair. Although rockers is also the term that is used to refer to a rocking chair, the term rocker for craftsmen refer to the curved wood fixed at the base of the legs of the rocking chair. These rockers must be made with utmost precision and care so that a soft, balanced rocking motion is achieved by the chair whenever it is set in motion. Many people, however, meet accidents with rockers as feet and toes can get easily crushed underneath them whenever the chair is in motion. Because of this, more modern rockers have springs that alleviate this concern. The backrests of the rocking chair function like the backrests of traditional chairs. The backrests of rocking chairs however, are designed to provide more comfortable back support. They have a slight bend or angle to more effectively catch a reclining posture. This is also to retain comfort even while the occupant is rocking back and forth with the rocking chair. The legs of a rocking chair functions like the legs of a regular chair, only that they are quite thicker and shorter because the legs are mounted to the rocker. Armrests are not always there, because some rocking chairs do not have armrests. Rocking chairs with armrests provide higher levels of comfort, though.
