Or conversely, blissfully a stay at home Mum, never missing a school performance or trip, always there at the classroom door and knowing everyone in the line, every school calendar date and all over each school notice. more “The Supermum Myth Book review & #Giveaway”

Christmas overwhelm: The most wonderful (and chaotic) time of the year

Although it’s only late November, there is a definite buzz of Christmas in the air.

GUEST POST: Tricks to help you teach your child healthy eating habits

Even if we started them early, it can be tricky to get our kids to eat healthy. Kid food isn’t generally designed to be healthy — it’s designed to be tasty.

How to raise a highly sensitive child

People without children underestimate the formidable task of child-rising, especially the role Moms play in raising happy, healthy, and emotionally-balanced kids. This is because they rarely catch a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes drama that most Moms have to deal with as a matter of course. They see Moms as counselors, advisors, teachers, and coaches, but rarely see them diligently working on keeping the bathroom a safe place from slips and falls and burns from scalding water, regulating meal-times and bedtimes, and patiently explaining to curious little minds how life works. more “How to raise a highly sensitive child”

Kids being mobile safe at school: how parents can help and other practical advice

As we have just started a new school year, perhaps it’s the time for you to have allowed your child to take a mobile phone or tablet to school.
