So after careful consideration and realizing that I do have good, generally well-behaved children. I am not struggling with any major issues with my kids, just normal everyday stuff. Still, I must confess that sometimes I can not handle all of their requests, and saying “no” works. Simply saying no or barking orders about what kids should be doing can be expedient in the moment. However, it does not foster their sense of capability or independence and can make the situation ripe for power struggles. If I want to achieve the goal of being more positive, I would have to give more power and responsibility over to my kids. Positive discipline does not mean that kids always get their way or that you say yes to everything. It means giving kids opportunities to have some age appropriate control over their own world, within the firm and loving boundaries you feel comfortable with. Sounds like a good plan, right? In our upcoming posts, we will give you 3 strategies to use when you struggle with no the most. Leave us your comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

The twin spacecraft will fall out of contact with Earth one day. But even then, their work will not be over. They will continue to serve as earthly messengers.

Gold-plated copper disks known as the golden records are attached to each ship. The 12-inch disks carry messages. They are designed to work like a time capsule. The disks contain pictures and music. They also have recordings of greetings from Earth in 55 languages.

The disks were mad when the Voyagers launched. The work like old phonograph records. In 1977, CD’s were a thing of the future. If the golden records are found one day, CD’s too, will likely be a thing of the long-distant past. See more on the Voyager.

After spending a long 34 years in space and a total of 20 billion miles, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 are set for their greatest adventure to date.

The two Voyager spacecrafts launched in 1977. They had a big mission: Fly to Jupiter, then on to Saturn and then maybe swing by Uranus and Neptune.

Voyager 2 made that grand tour. It flew through the solar system. In 1989, it visited Neptune. It is still the only spacecraft to have visited the outer planets of Uranus and Neptune.

Voyager 1 visited Jupiter and Saturn. It spun past Saturn’s moon Titan. Then the craft traveled toward the edge of the solar system.

The Voyagers were more successful than anyone had expected. And they continue to soar through space. Now, the Voyagers are set to leave the solar system. What will they find?
