Have you had the task yet of choosing a primary school for your child? What things did you take into account? Here are a few things to consider.
Whether your child is moving schools because you are moving to another area, or they are just moving onto the next stage of their education, it can be a daunting process for both children and their parents.
As parents, you always want to teach your kids financial responsibility. One way to do that is with a prepaid card, but you should make sure that your teen is ready for it.
Money struggles affect a lot of people, whether you have one child or multiple. Being able to take them out during half terms and holidays is nice, but is something that can make money a little bit tighter.
People tell you lots of things when you are pregnant. They offer a ton of well-meaning advice and hints and tips. One of the things no one ever mentioned to me was what happens when your children are having a growth spurt. Here’s what I’ve learnt along the way.
Dr Carla Runchman is a Clinical Psychologist, mum of one, founder of Mama Diary and author of ‘Mama Notes’, a notebook for the first 12 weeks of motherhood to help mums focus on their emotional well-being. Together with space to make notes on newborn essentials such as feeding and nappies, each week has a well-being focus with ideas or activities to try, and journal pages with prompts to help you reflect on the important moments of these early weeks.
Do you consider your child to be a fussy eater? A survey of 2,000 parents of children aged four to 16 found three in five consider their child a ‘fussy eater’.
If you’ve been told your baby is back to back don’t panic. There is lots of time for the baby to turn before labour and if they don’t you can still do it. There were a few concerned looking faces during my last two births but I was so determined to get my babies out without forceps that eventually started to shift them in the right direction. Good luck and trust your body! It will all be worth it.
