What is a good dog breeds?

Owning a dog is a good decision, but of course since you have kids at home you must consider your lifestyle and the ages of the children.

There are hundreds of dog breeds but here are the best breeds to consider when there are kids:

1.    Shih Tzu
This affectionate breed makes a great choice for families of all ages and most activity levels. Not requiring too much exercise, the easy going Shih Tzu is a comfort loving, trusting companion who loves being close to you at all times.

2.    Hungarian Viszla
A truly active dog for families that enjoy the outdoors and can provide plenty of physical exercise, this energetic hunting breed can make a great addition to the family. Fiercely loyal, sometimes to the point of being clingy, Viszlas are loving, tactile, sturdy yet sensitive.

3.    Golden Retriever
This is the third most-popular breed in the American Kennel Club (AKC) rankings. Families love it for its friendly disposition and eagerness to please, and its history as a waterfowl retriever means that your kids will have a blast playing fetch for hours and romping on the beach. 

4.    Poodle
Poodles range in size from Toy, Miniature and Standard so suit many family’s needs. Despite a reputation as precious or fussy, they are a working breed keen to get involved with family activities and their low-shedding coats can actually be quite low maintenance with regular clipping.

5. Beagle
Charlie Brown knew it all along: For kids, happiness is a warm puppy, especially if it's a Beagle like Snoopy. The AKC lists it as one of the breeds that's sweet and easygoing not only with children, but also with cats; certain other family-friendly dogs are more aggressive toward small animals.

How to control emotions?

We are talking about negative emotions, and sometimes in our life we didn’t control it when emotional pain is too much.

Here are four simple steps to start controlling your emotions effectively.

Awareness
Begin to monitor your emotions and be aware. If you are not aware of the times when you are overly emotional or overreacting, how can you try to manage it? Responding immediately to emotional triggers can be an immense mistake. It is certain that you'll say or do something you'll later regret. 

Know the cause of your emotions
Once you have identified how you are feeling, you want to discover why you are feeling it. What is causing this feeling inside you? Of course, there could be a million reasons, and to find out you have to ask yourself, like you would a friend, “What is wrong? What is causing me to feel this way?” Your mind will always look for an answer. Most of the time, simply the way you are thinking about the situation is causing you to feel the way you do. Another huge reason why we feel negative emotions is because our values are not present in that moment or being respected. Remember: discover the ‘why.’

Understand
Sometimes by simply understanding why you feel a certain way at a certain time, your emotions will start to diminish because understanding always leads to calming.

Have Faith
Faith is our saving grace in our darkest moments. No matter your creed, developing a healthy relationship with the divine world will help you surmount your obstacles more easily. This is because when you believe in a higher force, you also believe in the power of divine intervention to show you what you must do, teach you why something is happening or even save you from a certain unwanted situation. When burdened with emotion, close your eyes, envision a positive solution to your problem, and ask the universe to illuminate the best path forward.
