Studies done by child psychologists (like the professionals at New Vision Psychology) have discovered the phrases that are doing the most harm. Below, we’ve rounded up 3 common things we say to our kids that we should stop doing. Keep reading to find out what they are.

Finding childcare seems like a sensible option but I wasn’t too sure where to start… But then Childcare.co.uk got in touch to tell me about their website.

Kids Will Be Kids, Even On Holiday!

Unless you haven’t been following me for very long, you’ll know that we have just had the holiday of a lifetime in Florida (I may have mentioned it once or twice!) I’ve been on Instagram sharing my brilliant photos, I’ve popped some albums up on my personal Facebook page and I’ve even written a few blogs in the couple of weeks since coming home but there was something that wasn’t documented, there were things I didn’t want to take photos of and there were memories I am going to block out forever. Yes, my kids still acted like kids! Continue reading “Kids Will Be Kids, Even On Holiday!”

*Collaborative Post

“You’re not the boss of me,” you say when your little one throws another temper tantrum. “I have a life too you know,” you protest when they make demands of your time. “You’re not in charge,” you argue when they grab you by the hand and lead you to the sweet aisle of the supermarket.

Why We Are Taking Our Child Out Of School To Go On Holiday

Ok, so as you know by now we are off to Florida in March. What I haven’t mentioned is the fact that we are going during term time and so we will be taking Jake out of school but there are good reasons for this. No, they may not be good enough for the school or Government to accept but for us, we need to do this.

Starting Swimming Lessons For My 4 Year Old With Turtle Tots

Swimming has always been an activity that I have done with my children from an early age. It is something we all love and I’ve always thought it is very important to teach them about water safety from the word go. However, when Jake was younger I wasn’t in the position to be able to afford swimming lessons and as we went to a pool once a week I believed I could help him to swim on my own.
