Child psychologists believe that in order to treat a kid's anxiety disorder, they must first treat their parent's anxiety.
This makes total sense. Children learn how to deal with stress and life's obstacles by imitating the adults in their lives. Anxious parents create anxious children.

Even though you have more chances of dying from a shark attack than in a plane accident, as it turns out, not every aircraft is as safe as they seem.
"Every plane you fly on has a multitude of maintenance issues, just not severe enough to affect the safety of the flight," a pilot explained on Reddit.

Luckily for frequent flyers everywhere, if any of these problems are actually serious, the plane will simply stay put and it won't fly anywhere. Pheew!

One round of bleach will only leave you with a coppery dark brown shade. To get that intense platinum blonde shade, you need to do several rounds of bleaching, depending on your base. Plus, if you want to keep your hair as healthy as possible, you're better off doing 10 rounds in the span of a few months.
