Essential Adulting Lessons You Need To Teach Your Kids

*Collaborative Post

The truism that the hardest job is being a parent has never been more relevant than now. Raising our kids to become well-adjusted adults in a time of unstable digital economy, the pressures of social media and time of rising anxiety and bad mental health among teens is a worrying prospect. It’s understandable to want to wrap your children in cotton wool and shield them from the world. Continue reading “Essential Adulting Lessons You Need To Teach Your Kids”

Mini First Aid Berkshire Review

First aid training for babies and children was something I had always wanted to do but with the arrival of Jake and the whirlwind of becoming a first time Mother it meant it became one of those things I just kept (naughtily) putting off. Then when William arrived 8 weeks early, it seemed to be the only thing I could think about. My perspective on child emergency care had vastly changed and when he was allowed to come home with us after 3 weeks in NICU, I was extremely nervous that something would happen and I wouldn’t know what to do. The hospital were amazing and provided us with basic CPR and choking knowledge before his discharge but I felt that I needed more in-depth training which would cover other possible accidents or medical situations, so when Alison from Mini First Aid Berkshire got in touch about attending one of her 2 hour classes, I jumped at the chance.

Get Your Grades Online, Mom!

*Collaborative Post

As a Mother, your first concern is making sure that you’re being the best Mommy you can be, and that in itself is a full-time job. As wonderful a job as it is, it takes a lot of time away from doing other things. Some of you may find that because of this, you haven’t been able to get the job you want because you’ve missed on out getting the grades. Now, they say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks – but this saying is so incorrect! It’s never too late to go back to School. Continue reading “Get Your Grades Online, Mom!”

Making Learning Fun with Little House of Science

*Collaborative Post

Back in the day, when I was at school, you were there to learn and this meant the classes were usually pretty serious. I always did well in the interactive classes– Music, Science, English– but I struggled with Maths from the start. For me, it was always explained in a very complicated way. If I can relate information I am given to practical situations and it seems logical to me I can take it all in and learn and perhaps if it had all been made more fun I may have been much more engaged. It wasn’t until I failed my Maths GCSE and had to re-do a year at college that I found a teacher who finally made it all ‘click’. Continue reading “Making Learning Fun with Little House of Science”
