Why are you receiving a ValueMags magazine?

Recently, many individuals have been contacting ValueMags Tech Support to understand why they are receiving a magazine from ValueMags. Below are the answers to why these individuals are receiving magazines sent by ValueMags!

There are two reasons that you are getting a ValueMags sponsored magazine when you did not explicitly order it: it was sent through a ValueMags partner or it was a promotional offer.

In the case of partner orders, the [name of magazine] was included at no additional cost with your purchase from [Partner Name] you have not been charged. We do not have your billing information. This subscription will NOT auto-renew.

In the case of a promotional offering, your subscription to [magazine title] was created through a sponsored online promotional offer.  Unfortunately, there is no indication which sponsored offer initiated the magazine and someone could have signed up on your behalf.

 You have not been charged and we do not have any credit card information.  There is no automatic renewal for this subscription.  You will not be billed for receiving this promotional subscription.

In both cases, ValueMags does NOT have your billing information, only your mailing address. The mailing you received may be a renewal offer rather than a bill. If it is a renewal offer, you can simply disregard it if you do not wish to renew.

Also, these mailings are standardized and go to all subscribers as they approach their expiration dates and often include statements regarding automatic renewals.  Automatic renewals only apply to subscribers who have provided payment information to the publisher for renewals.  Again, we do not have your credit card information.
We do not automatically renew any of the subscriptions that are processed through our agency.

It is important to take away that if you have received magazine(s) from ValueMags and want to ensure that it does not happen again, call ValueMags today or contact us through this website so we can track you and remove you from our mailing list. ValueMags has many partners so it is important when you are ordering items online to read through the terms and conditions. There may be a checkbox in those terms and conditions to be checked off if you do not want to receive other promotional items.

French Election Restores Hope: May 2017 International News

It was a concern for many. The French Elections would likely determine a three-way power axel if Le Pen won. Alongside Trump and Putin, the trio would form a dynamic trio that would call all international shots. During the French campaigns, Trump endorsed Le Pin for her nationalist politics and firm thoughts about international immigration. Sunday May 7th, 2017, the French people decided their fate. By a landslide, Macron took the vote. Although it seemed as though she was the front runner in the pre-poles, over 80% of French citizens preferred another candidate to Le Pen. Additionally, over 60% of French voted for Macron making it the most obvious electoral decision in years. It was not nearly that definitive with Hollande or even Sarkozy. There was a 37 point difference between Macron and Le Pen which demonstrates how inaccurate the pre-poles are. So what does this mean for the French people?

Seeing as Macron was barely on the political French radar 2 years ago, his young spirit and grounded personality will bring a fresh start to France. He is not only the youngest president in French history at 39 years old, he was able to successfully start his own movement. The movement, “Forward” was not endorsed by anyone. It was successful because of himself and a unified people that believed. This fresh face is sure to present France with hope and prosperity in a corrupt and uncertain world.

The Importance of Young Children Having a Consistent Bedtime

It is a common belief that parents would want to put their children to bed early in order to have some quality time together. But there are still a large amount of parents who do not set a specific bedtime for their children. According to a British study, a bedtime routine is best for your child to get them ready to sleep. In addition, having their bedtime set at the same time everyday will result in better behavior during the day.

The study consisted of young children between the ages of 3 to 7 years and those who did not have a consistent bedtime have negative long-term effects on behavior. When the bedtimes of these children were the most varying, the worse their behavior would get. The worse is putting children to bed late which is considered to be 9pm or later. The cause, according to their theory is that is impacts their circadian rhythm and thus interrupts the child’s physical and mental performance.

It is also important to put children to bed early for their brains to mature in order to regulate their behavior. Another drawback of putting your children to bed at different times everyday is the fact that they are going to get lower quality sleep that can interfere with brain development. The research has shown that this can cause negative effects later in life.

For those parents who have been a little slack with the sleeping patterns of their kids, they shouldn’t worry much. These effects can be reversible if action will be taken to improve the bedtime patterns. Keep in mind that once this is improved, so will their behaviors. It is more often than not the parents’ control when their children go to bed. Some reasons can be parenting styles, the family dynamic or environment, and digital screen time use before bedtime.

It is even a good thing for parents to be available to their children physically and emotionally to help them go to bed at a good time every night. Some examples can be with a bath, reading a book, using softer voices, lights and screens turned off. When children to go to bed early every night, it even helps them with self-discipline. It is even a good opportunity for the parent and their child to share a great connection while instilling bedtime routines and reading together.
