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.
Looking for somewhere to take the kids for a long weekend? Cambridge is one of the best cities in the UK for a family escape.
It’s especially great for older children. The city is full of ancient history — and with a unique English charm, you just don’t experience in larger cities like London.
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.
I have many inward battles with myself when it comes to starting a new Netflix show. I absolutely love having a good Netflix binge however my parenting and responsibilities to pretty much everything else goes completely out the window when I do. This isn’t too bad when there is only 1 season of a show but when there are 3 or more, this can cause some pretty big issues in our household!
Newcastle upon Tyne is a vibrant city on the River Tyne in the northeast of England. Widely regarded at the region’s capital, you’ll find plenty to do if you’re planning a day without the kids. From shopping and wine tasting to hiking or opera, try these adult-only suggestions for an unforgettable break.
Are you getting tired of asking your kids, “Did you do your chores yet?” all the time? Well, one thing is for sure – you’re not alone. Every parent out there can relate.
The thing about chores is that they’re often viewed as something negative – tiring, tedious, not fun. However, research also found out that chores help set children up for success in life. So you see, you’ve got one more good reason to encourage your kids to help around the house.
With Flinn due to start primary school in just a few weeks I have been searching the internet for tips on preparing your child for primary school. Flinn can be hard to read; he says he is not worried about starting and is looking forward to it but he has also been acting out a lot lately and I wonder if deep down he is really quite anxious.
As well as putting together some tips I have found myself I thought I would also ask some other blogger Mum’s and see what their top tips were.
