Exposing your children to great things is one of the best parts of being a parent. Giving your child their first ice cream bar, showing them the stars and introducing them to great artists are a few of the most wonderful aspects. Some artists appeal more to children than others, but there are a couple who are hugely influential to nearly everyone. Included here are a few of the great artists your children should be aware of.

There is no quicker way to turn a dinner table conversation into a blazing row than to bring up the topic of schools. Wine glasses get knocked over and neighbourhood friendships rupture. I even remember the peace of a family outing to an ice rink in north London being pierced by a screeching scuffle between a leading liberal-left journalist and an equally well known comprehensive school campaigner over where a child was going to be educated.

If your child is shy and finds it hard to be social with others, there are many ways to boost his or her confidence. Some children find integrating with others difficult. It’s not a failing on your part if your child is a little antisocial. Some children take a little longer to find their feet than others. The problem is that if your child gets into the habit of being reclusive, he or she will struggle to create lasting bonds with others. A child’s social life is just as important as every other aspect of his or her life. One thing that many parents find is that learning magic tricks can increase their child’s confidence. (more…)

So you think you live a healthy lifestyle? So did 26-year-old Melanie Murphy. Like many youngsters, Murphy struggled with her weight as a teenager. When she was about to turn 20, she decided to take action and clean up her eating habits with a view to getting in shape. But the solution became the problem when she developed a debilitating obsession with “healthy” eating that threatened to drive her bananas — literally. At one stage the fruit was the only thing she ate.

At the center of a prosperous family is a successful home budget. You and your partner can have great jobs, live in a great place, by great things, and then suddenly feel the bottom of a financial death spiral drop out from under your feet. A detailed budget is going to keep you away from that chasm and provide you and your family with a sound basis for choosing the appropriate standard of living as well.
Unless it’s Tweets or Facebook posts, kids just don’t do a lot of reading these days. Why should they, when they can entertain themselves with social media sites, games consoles and mobile phones, all of which require less effort than the old fashioned book?

I don’t know how many of you out there reading this can understand just how filled a day can be with looking after a family. Honestly, it’s mind-blowing at times, to say the least. If you look at a typical day, not a weekend, you have meals to prepare, starting with breakfast, kids and husband to get off to school and work, regardless of age. That comment includes the husband, by the way! Then the daily chores which, if you have a day off, pile up to veritable mountains. Washing, cleaning, shopping, cooking and planning. Can anybody find a moment in there for a bit of self-time? What if you have a hobby? Bad luck, right. (more…)
