When I think about how vastly different things were when my grandparents were children as opposed to today’s kids, it’s mind boggling. For example, grams and gramps didn’t even have a television let alone a computer, smartphone or other handheld electronic device. Nowadays, it’s more common to see a child with a cell phone rather than a toy or a book. (more…)

Parenting is one of the hardest experiences you’ll ever go through in life. If it isn’t the hardest, it ranks pretty far up there considering it’s an ongoing experience that doesn’t end when your child turns 18. Even though the hardest years of parenting might be behind you at that point, you’ll still have those late nights where your daughter calls you because she and her boyfriend just broke up. You’ll still have excruciatingly painful experiences, as well as moments of the purest kind of joy when your son or daughter gets married, or you see your grandchild for the first time. (more…)

If you’re like most parents, you worry about what your kids may be doing with their cell phone. A case for iPhone 7 pro and a screen guard protector can protect the outside of the phone, but it can’t protect your children from getting into trouble online. Though cell phones are almost a necessity for children today, their small screens and portable nature make it hard for parents to know just what their kids are up to. Here are four ways to help keep tabs on your child’s cell phone use. (more…)

Thinking about a furry addition to your family? As we all know, getting a pet is a long-term commitment. You have a moral obligation to conduct in-depth research into the qualities and requirements of your prospective pet to ensure you are capable of caring for them. (more…)

Living in the UK has its upsides and unfortunately, has its downsides.

With the right list of priorities and the help of a reputable au pair agency in London, the juggling act can be easier. Here’s how. (more…)

Kids are surrounded by technology more than adults. We may have just our smartphone and office computer to deal with, kids have many other gadgets; gaming consoles, iPads and handheld gaming tablets etc. (more…)

Store-bought popcorn – whether pre-made or in its own cooking sachet – is pretty expensive compared to the rock-bottom price of the actual corn itself. All you’re really paying extra for is the fancy packaging and the dubious, invariably unhealthy added ingredients, but the only other option is to cook it in a pan, right?

There is nothing wrong with staying home and raising your kids, but there is also nothing wrong with heading back out into the world of full-time (or part-time) work after you’ve had children. While there is nothing wrong with it, it can sometimes be hard to do. (more…)

Especially now the summer holidays are upon us (a teacher’s dream, a parent’s nightmare – I’m so torn!), it can be difficult entertaining your kids (their cousins, your neighbours’ kids and friends’ kids, plus whoever else you’re in a babysitting rota with!), and it never hurts to have a bit of inspiration.

I’ve known of the existence of Gulliver’s World since I was a kid as I’m from Warrington. I actually worked there as well – the job being kind of a rite of passage for any teens living in the Old Hall vicinity. But I know plenty of people around the North Wales area who have never heard of it, and so it’s not on their radar as a place to take the kids this summer.

Which kind of means you’re missing out!

When we are trying to help our kids learn something new, it is always a struggle to make it memorable. Helping kids with school work can be tedious and boring. It’s so easy to forget children need to go at a slower and more detailed pace than we need to. When we have to learn the topic too, it can make things easier, because we can think about how we are going to remember the information later on. Try having a themed day to help the memory. (more…)
