Tyler Perry Pays Off More Than $430,000 In Layaways Ahead Of Christmas

Secret Santa’s are helping spread some holiday cheer!

Holidays are full of joy and spending time with family and friends.

Many of us have traditions of decorating trees, wonderful meals and tasty treats, driving around looking at holiday lights.

But as a kid I recall the biggest excitement was waiting to open gifts!!

As a single mom the biggest struggle in the back of my mind was money.

I would try and plan and save months in advance. I loved the stores that had a layaway.

Well on Thursday, Tyler Perry sprinkled some holiday cheer at two WalMart’s in the Atlanta area and paid $433,635  worth of layaway items off.

Perry said “God bless, go get your stuff, Merry Christmas.”

Perry mad Christmas for so many families.

Holidays are full of magic if you believe.

Never mind that years of being a parent have given you a lot of experience and education on how to handle such situations. You have the best intentions at heart, but the results are often not a reflection of this fact.

Personally, I have had to deal with a few major teenage meltdowns. Like most people, I had no sure way of dealing with these kinds of crises.

Then I met people who were discussing how they often deal with the teenage crises they have been in at some point or another.

But through this discussion, one great realization was revealed to me – it’s all about how a teenager’s brain works.

To this woman, life is an adventure. Even when doing normal mundane things such as cooking, she finds a way to make an adventure out of it.

She knows the value of time and wants every moment to be precious to her.

Being in love with this woman will expand your mind, and it will challenge you to be better.

She wants you to grow, and she will open your mind to new ideas about life.

To this woman, lists don’t matter, her heart and intuition guide her along.

For this woman, the journey is just as important as the destination. She is ready to take solo travels, but she is also willing to share these special times with a kindred spirit. She likes people who can help her grow and expand her mind.

But what can you do as a parent to get things back on track?

A perfect solution is to let the teenager calm down first so that the emotional distress goes down. From there, the teenager can start thinking rationally again, and you can work your way out of the crisis through a discussion after that.

Understand that there is nothing you can do to control the emotions that teenagers go through, and neither can they. You just have to let them run their course, and eventually, they'll settle on their own.

The melatonin is also linked to physical activity, hormone levels, alertness, body temperature, digestive activity, and immune functions. Thus, light-sensitive people experience a direct impact on sleep patterns and energy levels.

Another reason why we experience a disruption in our sleep patterns is the use of artificial light. This light confuses our natural body rhythms if we’re absorbing both light types at the same time.

Because of this, you’re likely to feel irritated and perplexed due to exposure of the mixture of two light sources. You can even feel frustrated, unable to relax, or deep sleep.

But it’s very important not to put the focus on the fact that the teenager is upset. Instead, let them feel or know that they have a right to be upset, as that is the only way to get to a point where a solution to the problem would be welcome or even useful.

Overreacting will only make the crisis worse. So, when your teenage child is having a breakdown, it is not time to issue threats or ultimatums. Trying to offer solutions, however well-intended, will not help either.

Your child is not broken, he/she is slowly recreating who they are so that they can finally mature.

So, when you see a teen in a crisis, the first thing you should do is calm them down. Everything else comes later.
