10 Positive Parenting Mantras to Channel Your Inner Calm

My 3-year-old is eating peanut butter toast with banana for breakfast (his request), and we are officially running late for preschool. We need to get in the car soon if we want to miss the morning traffic, but he has decided that he no longer wants the food that he begged for 2 minutes earlier. What started off as a relatively calm breakfast has turned into a battle of wills over him taking a few more bites of food.

“You’re going to be hungry” I say, realizing immediately that he could care less. I can feel my frustration rising and even though I’m trying to stay calm, I’m getting snappy and irritable. In hindsight I can see so many opportunities that fell through the cracks to salvage this morning, but in the moment… there was nothing. Nothing I could do to stay calm, nothing I could do to get this tiny human to eat his food. Tantrums all around.

And all I could think was here we are again. I had cros...

Japan’s Super-Moms: Who They Are and Why the Rest of the World Is So Critical of Them

In Japan, some well-off families adhere to a set of unusual parenting rules. It boils down to mothers paying the closest possible attention to their little ones’ education. At times, things border on the absurd: moms enroll 6-month-old babies in kindergartens to prepare them for school, and personally escort 17-year-olds to university exams, holding their hand all the way to the classroom. These women are called ’Kyoiku Mama’ or ’Super-Moms.’

We at Bright Side decided to find out what these ladies are hoping to achieve, what societ...

Digimon Adventure Reboot Trailer

While it doesn't give us much to go on we can see that some of the kids outfits have changed. Pretty much everyone except for Joe have slightly altered designs in their clothing. It's not a huge change but still. More interesting is that Kari is present right from the beginning it looks like...

How to activate dark mode for Instagram

Running Instagram in dark mode can help conserve power (as Google's research has revealed), it's easier on the eyes at night, the contrast can make text easier to read and perhaps most importantly, it just looks cool.

Developers have been scrambling to update their apps with new color schemes in recent months (Google Chrome, Facebook and Twitter have all received makeovers), and Instagram is one of the latest to gain the option.

However, enabling dark mode for Instagram isn't as simple as flicking a switch in the app, and it isn't yet available to everyone. As head of Instagram Adam Mosseri notes in a tweet, you need to be running the latest version of the mobile operating system – that is, Android 10 or iOS 13 – to enjoy the dark tones:

Starting today, you can use Instagram in dark mode on iOS 13 or Android 10. Turn dark mode on your phone to try it out.

30 History Photos Never Found In Textbooks

Written by Marion Wijnberg

There is so much of our past that hasn’t made it into our history textbooks. And there are multiple sides to the common historical events we were taught in school. While some events have been long forgotten, our understanding of our past is broadened by looking at historical events from a fresh perspective. The collection of photographs shown here offer us a unique glimpse into the past. 

You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.

Street Portraits of the Incredible Cargo People Carry on Motorbikes in Hanoi

Motorcycle Delivery Hanoi Photos by Jon Enoch

 

If you’ve ever been to Southeast Asia, you know that motorcycles (or scooters) are the transport of choice for many locals. In dense cities such as Hanoi, the narrow streets are usually clogged with them, and there’s always the low hum of engines in the air. The 2-wheelers are perfect for zipping around from one spot to the next, but they’re also surprisingly useful for transporting cargo.

Intrigued by the scooter culture in Hanoi, London-based photographer Jon Enoch captures the vast and unusual motorbike loads across the Vietnamese city. “When I...
