MotherStucker Approved TIPS to find COLLISION REPAIR SHOPS in DOWNRIVER MI

Tips for Finding Collision Shops in Downriver MI

Tips-for-Finding-Collision-Shops-in-Downriver-MI

PAY NOW OR PAY LATER

As the old saying goes: You get what you pay for. When it comes to collision shops in Downriver Michigan it’s no different. Getting the cheapest price & going with them isn’t always the best idea. You may pay a little less now for the repair but it could cost you more in the long run. Especially when it comes to trading in your vehicle or selling it later. If someone has a keen eye they may see the flaws you didn’t when you got it repaired. Here are some tips that you can use when getting an auto body repair on your car.

♦PICK THE CAR UP IN THE BRIGHT DAYLIGHT

You won’t be able to inspect the work on the car if it’s late at night or on a very cloudy day. The sheen of the paint simply isn’t going to shine like it would if the sun was out. Also you want to avoid picking the car up in the rain or during the early morning when there is lots of dew in the air & on the ground. Pick a sunny day to get your car.

♦LOOK DOWN ALL THE EDGES OF THE CAR

Look down the edges of the car & look for imperfections. Pay close attention to curves such as those above fender wells. These are the hardest spots on a vehicle to fix & can sometimes be under worked. Any sightlines should be the exact same on both sides of the car. If your car was damaged in the front, make sure the gaps in the bumper, grill & hood are all symmetrical. Having larger gaps on one side means something isn’t right & will need to be looked into.

♦DRIVE THE CAR & FEEL FOR ANY PULLS

Once you have inspected the exterior of the car you’ll also want to check out how it drives. In major collisions the frame or body may need extensive work & alignment. The tires in the front may also need to be realigned. Make sure the car tracks in a straight line when driving & braking.

I hope these tips for finding collision shops in Downriver Michigan have helped you. The next time you get into a fender bender make sure to refer back to this article & keep these tips in mind.

9 Things Every Parent with an Anxious Child Should Try

“Anger is something that we’re dealing with at home as a result of anxiety.”

3 Reasons why Keeping Lights ON is a MUST!

Apparently, this MotherStucker is the only person in my household who knows how to turn the lights off? Many times per day (year after year…) I walk from room to room doing the switch-off-sigh-swear-shuffle-step. You too? This ends now. Starting today CUT THE LIGHTS – NO MORE. No seriously, here are 3 excellent (bright!) reasons to keep lights ON!

#1. Yes, I’m approaching a big birthday year that may or may not start with a 4 & end with a 0. According to the American Optometric Association, “Just like your body, your eyes & vision change over time. Aging changes in various parts of the eye can result in a number of noticeable differences in how well you see, including need for more light. As you age, you need more light to see as well as you did in years past. Brighter lights in your work area or next to your reading chair will help make reading & other near tasks easier.”

#2. Safety & security is a hot topic of late. Cut the lights ON to deter would be home invaders. As a born & bred Kentuckian now living in South Carolina please know that I’m humming “Every Light In The House (Is On)” by Trace Adkins while I’m typing…. &  remembering the first rule in Conceal & Carry Certification Class is to know WHAT you are shooting at 😉

lite-source-1-light-min-pendant-lamp-ls-19793-054#3. Hey Good Lookin! It’s easy to hit the lights ON when your fixtures are updated & gorgeous. Recently I’ve replaced several outdated pendants with modern lighting looks complete with Edison bulbs. Be sure to check out www.lightingmiami.com for all your lighting needs from modern lamps to wholesale LED bulbs, to chandeliers & more!

Now go & trip the light fantastic! Green Light & GO!

Wine, Dine & Toddler

We all love eating out. We love being treated to a gorgeous meal. But what about that child over at table 6 who just won’t stop screaming?

1919195_1272576540344_3706681_nHaving a family is endlessly rewarding, but being a parent is challenging. You want to be a role model to your children. Of course sometimes being a parent isn’t as straightforward as you had bargained on. As a child grows up, he or she must adapt to many things, it’s a big & new world… & it’s not always a simple one. Children aren’t always aware yet of their environment & how to respond to external stimuli. Understanding another’s needs requires a certain amount of empathy & empathy takes time for children to learn. Empathy can only come from observation & social interaction.

Before you bring your child into a restaurant, try practicing eating out at home first. If you have the option, eat at another table in the house from where you normally share family meals. You’re setting a new scene. Next practice talking at different volumes. Start with loud & go all the way down to a whisper. You can make a fun game of it. Then demonstrate the appropriate speaking level so not to disturb other diners. Favorite plush toys make great restaurant guests. You can even be creative and make a mock menu. Have your child practice reading while learning how to order.

Many factors can lead to arguments, tantrums & frustration, from a simple lack of sleep to certain disorders. How a parent is able to control their child during a spat or tantrum can determine the outcome & severity of the problem. Practicing at home can alleviate a lot of stress. It might seem a little silly to play ‘restaurant’ but the lessons your child learns will make your & their experience more fun when they join you at the restaurant for the first time. For children who suffer from a disorder, you might want to practice with a professional caretaker on hand.
