Parents should read to kids…Humanitarian crisis at the border…3-D mammograms…Team USA advances with loss…Kids and allowance? (Friday News)

Six out of 10 parents give their children an allowance…And about one-third of parents exchange allowance for household chores, though many experts recommend keeping the two separate, saying that kids have chores to do because they’re part of the family.
BTW: The average rate for a child’s allowance = $65 dollars a month www.webmd.com/parenting/family-health-12/allowances-children

Parents should read aloud to their children every day starting in infancy.
That’s according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, suggesting that reading aloud to your children enhances child development and prepares young minds for early language and reading ability.

Humanitarian crisis at the border…A surge of border crossers from Central America into the US, about half of whom are unaccompanied children. -The journey from Central America into south Texas is over a thousand miles. It’s hot, treacherous. It’s NOT safe.

3-D mammograms may be better at finding cancer than regular scans, a large study suggests. The study involved almost half a million breast scans. The 3-D scan along with conventional scans detected one additional cancer per 1,000 scans, and also had 15% fewer false alarms.

When you’re trying to lose weight, cutting back on the amount of food you eat is a given. One food that helps to control your appetite…SOUP?
In a Penn State study, people who consumed a bowl of low-calorie, broth-based soup before their main lunch meal, reduced their total calorie intake at the meal by 20%. Also, apples, beans, water even pickles help control your appetite.
