These last few weeks Flinn (5) has been having absolute raging bedtime tantrums.
It’s those kinds of meltdowns when I actually don’t know what to do next or how to resolve it. When Flinn sees red there is no stopping him. It’s upsetting as a parent, for his 2 brothers and of course for him too.

Toddlers learn in more ways than we know. They gain knowledge about the world around them through everything they touch, move, break or even put in their mouth. As parents, it’s essential that we allow them to explore and play since that’s how they learn best. So, if you’re in search of educational activities for toddlers which don’t require you to make any special preparations, other than giving your little ones enough time and space, you should probably rely on types of play which can develop their motor skills, creativity and intelligence. Here are some ideas.
In the lead up to Flinn starting school this month I bought him a couple of children’s books that help with the fear and uncertainty of starting school as well as behaviour in general. I have always questioned if or how these kinds of books help but after a particularly bad tantrum one day thought they were definitely worth giving a go.
Let me start by saying I love my children and I love spending time with them. But do you know what – I also love spending time away from them. Not so much for me, it is not so that I can go and get my nails done or so I can drink a coffee whilst it is still hot (oh how I miss hot coffee) but it is more for them.
