Research has found that telling your kid he's smart can make him more apt to cheat to live up to the praise. Learn the best way to compliment kids. Chances are you’ve been telling your child he’s smart since he uttered his first word. And there’s bound to be praise when he learns to count to 10 or masters writing his name. But telling your little guy “you’re so smart” too often can have some unintended consequences.
Researchers found that people with ADHD are likely to also suffer from sleep problems. Learn how getting their circadian rhythm back on track can help. Some kids with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) might have trouble focusing on their homework, while others might zone out in class. Others still might have trouble waiting their turn to play with a toy. The one thing they’re all likely to have in common? They don’t get the quality or quantity of sleep they need.
These psychologist-recommended strategies can help kids face their anxieties and feel calm and confident. Whether it’s starting school or being left alone with a babysitter that strikes fear in your child, anxiety can take a toll on both kids and parents. Anxiety is extremely common in kids and will often start showing up around the age of three or four.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
