4 Things to Consider When Moving House with Children

*Collaborative Post

There is a lot of excitement that comes with the idea of moving to a new home. However, the entire process of moving from your old home to a new house is overwhelming and can even be worse if you have children. Moving houses with children is hectic therefore the need to seek reputable man and van services, such as Shift, can do the strenuous packing and unpacking job as you deal with the kids.

Simple ways to support your child’s home learning

*Collaborative Post

If there’s one thing we’ve learned this past year, it’s that home-schooling is not for the faint-hearted. Who knew that teaching our children the basics of mathematics, English and even science could be so demanding and so frustrating?

You may have a newfound respect for teachers and educators, but in the meantime finding ways to help enhance your child’s home learning experience is essential. Their education may be a little all over the place right now, but you’re doing your best and that’s the main thing. Here we’ll explore some simple ways you can support your child’s home learning.

Review | ReadyPrint Ink Subscription From Epson

*Ad

Having a printer in our home is a must for us. I have one child at school who needs it for homework (or for homeschooling during lockdown), a younger child who loves to colour in and I find printing pages is far easier than purchasing books all of the time. My husband is working from home and may well be for the foreseeable so he requires regular access to a printer. And then there’s all of our home/life paperwork which needs printing and filing. However, there is always one drawback when you have a printer, isn’t there? Running out of ink. Surely this has to be one of the most frustrating things to happen, especially when you are halfway through printing something you need. My other bugbear here is having to go to a shop, work out which ink cartridges are compatible (yes, I am that person who has to take the used cartridge into a tech store to show the staff!) and let’s not even talk about some of the prices!

The Importance Of Teaching Your Kids About Internet Safety With Safer Kids Online

*Ad

As a parent of a primary school-aged child, I have recently started to worry more and more about how much he is accessing the online world and how safe it is for kids today. When I was Jake’s age, computers were not commonly seen in homes, I didn’t use one regularly and the internet hadn’t even been born! Fast-forward to now and almost every home in the UK will have internet access which can be done at a click of a button on a phone, a tablet, a laptop, a computer and even on the TV. We live in a world where being online is valuable for work and education, it is fun, it is sociable and relaxing but there are also many factors that we need to take into consideration in order to stay safe. As adults, we are very aware of the dangers that can lurk behind these screens but children? Well, they don’t have the experience, they cannot fully understand how some people can manipulate you online or try to access your details and they also don’t have the capacity to limit their own screentime. It is down to us to guide them and to teach them how to use it safely and sensibly but how do you do this in a clear, simple, educational but fun way? This is where ESET comes in. With their Safer Kids Online website and free tools, you can help your child/children to understand that being online can be safe if they use it correctly.

Review | Bring A Little Christmas Magic With Lapland Letters

Christmas is a very special time in our household and not just because we have 2 boys who get very excited about Santa coming but also because it is one of their birthdays, meaning it’s double the fun! I always want to make each year magical but after having such a strange year, I wanted to bring Christmas into our home a little earlier than usual. 2020 has meant a lot of events have had to be cancelled and this will most probably include Santa’s Grottoes so what better way to bring a little Christmas magic than with our very own homemade grotto with Lapland Letters waiting for them?!

William on his Simba mattress

Simba Single Mattress Review

*Ad- PR sample

It had come to that time when we had to think about saying goodbye to the cot bed and move the youngest into a more grown-up, single bed. With William still waking in the night, we felt we had already tried every avenue and I even more recently changed his duvet to help with making his bed more snuggly but it still didn’t work and I realised that the best course of action would be to provide a bigger bed in which he wouldn’t be banging into the sides and most importantly, one with a much more substantial and comfortable mattress. The mattress in his cot is perfect for a baby but with the extra weight and movement now as an almost 3-year-old, it just wasn’t up to the job anymore. Thankfully, the lovely people over at Simba got in touch and as my mattress is by them and I love it, I knew their single mattress would be spot on for William.
