Finding Safe and Natural Products for Your Baby

Over a century ago, in 1903, George Hyland found Hyland’s. George was a pharmacist and wanted to create products that aligned with his belief in the power the human body holds. George believed that the human body can find internal resources to heal itself. This led George to found Hyland’s, a homeopathic medicine company. Homeopathic medicines are natural and safe products that are designed to help the body restore its balance and provide relief and healing. Since the company was founded in 1903, they have worked to meet the needs of their customers. They take feedback on current products and… [Read More]

Switch Off The Technology This Half-Term That Was My Aim

It’s been half-term this week and I decided that it was important for me to put my phone down and just have fun with my seven year old twin girls. I don’t want to be that parent that uses a tablet, laptop or the television as a babysitter for my children. This can so easily happen in this world of technology. Kids today have an almost unlimited amount of choice when it comes to technology, but too much can easily shut them off into their own little world. The learning of the use of this technology comes from us as… [Read More]

Yay! The Bike Stabilisers Are Gone A Life Lesson Learnt

A few months ago our twin girls asked for the stabilisers to be taken off their bikes. So, as you do, we did exactly that. Less than an hour later they were back on the bikes. The girls balance was just not there and steering the bike was, well a disaster! There was lots of crashing, banging legs on the pedals and a few tears thrown in too! My wife and I decided to put it off for another day. Moving forward to a couple of days ago the girls asked for the stabilisers to be removed again. I had… [Read More]

What Age Do we Let Our Children Walk to School Or Anywhere On Their Own?

We live in a world that is very unpredictable. The freedom that I had as a child from a very early age, really doesn’t exist anymore. I grew up in the city. Granted it’s not the biggest city in the world, but it has a population of around 300k so it’s a reasonable size. When I was growing up walking to the shop from my home, which I will admit was only about 400 yards away, was something I was doing at around seven or eight years old. There was no issue in doing this because the shopkeeper knew me… [Read More]

The Smart Way To Handle Your TV Entertainment

It hasn’t taken a very long time for televisions to develop to what you have access to today. Starting out as comparatively basic machines, early examples of TVs couldn’t even manage colour signals, and this is a far cry from the sort of options people go for today. When you have a nice screen, though, finding things to use it for can be a bit of a challenge. There are loads of products out there, and you can spend whatever you like on entertainment, making it worth looking for a piece of tech which can handle it all. This is… [Read More]

Raising Little Geniuses: How To Make Your Kids Smarter

Young children are much more intelligent than we give them credit for. While your little one might not be Einstein or Curie material quite yet, they do learn a tremendous amount just through everyday living. They learn about physics with toy bricks and maths when setting the table. As parents, we want to give our children every advantage in life, so it’s natural to want to nurture their minds as much as you can. With that in mind, here are six ways to raise smarter kids.

Going to the Park, Playing Board Games and hunting Easter Eggs: Entertaining Your Children

With half-term just gone and the Easter holidays on the way, it’s that time to think of ways to entertain and keep my seven-year old twin girls occupied and happy. Hopefully I won’t look too bored, even though inside I will be screaming not another game of snakes and ladders please! As parents we definitely go the extra mile when it comes to entertaining our kids. With that being said, I think that if we are going to make sure they are having a good time and enjoying themselves, I think it’s important that the activities we do with our… [Read More]

Year 2 Parents Evening Half Term Begins

Last week was the last week in school for my twin girls before half term. That also means that parents evening falls in that week. I’m not sure about everybody else, but I always find parents evening a daunting experience. I always feel like an adult that has gone back to school for twenty minutes. I’m not sure if it’s the small chairs and tables, and the fact that it is held in the school hall, but it always feels a very intimidating environment and then you sit in front of their teacher to hear how your children are getting… [Read More]
