Coming Into A Family Inheritance? 3 Tips To Using It Well

*Collaborative Post

Family inheritance can be a sticky subject, depending on how they are acquired. Usually, it’s in the form of a passing relative deciding to include you in their will. Sometimes this inheritance can come to you thanks to an estate being willfully transferred. It’s possible for other relations to come in and muddy the smooth flow of this transference, but for this article, we’ll assume that everything has gone well, and now your only choice is figuring out what to do with the money. Should you save it? Should you splurge it? Should you lock it in a savings account and hopefully grow it with interest? Continue reading “Coming Into A Family Inheritance? 3 Tips To Using It Well”

How to Help Your Child Cope with Having a Sibling in NICU

I was recently contacted by a Mother asking me if I had written a post on how to help your child cope with having a sibling in NICU. I hadn’t even thought about this as a blog topic but also couldn’t believe I had overlooked it! Through the emotions, the tiredness, the back and forth to the hospital, I had constantly thought about our baby and writing about his journey yet the other superstar hasn’t had a mention, and he definitely deserves one.

Animals Are Purrrfect For Our Wellbeing

*Collaborative Post

Did you know that most households have a pet living in them? Even though owning your very own dog, cat or hamster can be a lot of work and responsibility for the entire family, it is very much worth it. They are a great addition to any family, as they make the perfect play companions for children. Plus, you will find that you get a lot out of their loyalty and companionship as well. And they can even help to teach children some necessary life lessons. For instance, some parents buy their young children small pets, such as hamsters or guinea pigs, so that they can experience death once the animal passes. Even though that might not be the happiest thought, it can help set children up for some of the sad experiences that they will meet later in their adult life.
