When Is Facebook, Instagram and Twitter Going To Take Responsibility?

Some of the biggest and most powerful companies in the world are social media companies. They have been allowed to grow without any regulation and they seem to operate in their own world without any governing body, or government controlling their behaviour. They consistently tell us that it’s not their problem, but the people using the social media platforms problem. They also say they can’t control what is being posted, come on! Who are you kidding? Well, in my very humble opinion that is total nonsense, and it’s time they faced up to being responsible and started to operate their… [Read More]

My Top Three On My Bucket List

I have never been one for bucket lists in life, and I have certainly never been the sort of person that would have extreme activities on a bucket list. Saying that I feel I have probably missed out a bit and in the next period of my life I would like to change that and be a bit braver. I think the most dangerous thing I have done at times is go on a rope swing across a river. Yes, I know. It’s hardly the most adrenaline rush activity of all time! Here are three things that I would love… [Read More]

Dads! Do You Talk To Your Daughters About Periods #Pads4Dads Campaign

Did you know that nearly half of all dads in the UK have not talked to their daughters about periods?

Dads! You Are Your Children’s First Superhero Lets Get It Right!

When you have been a dad for as long as me, it’s actually 24 years this year, it’s scary to think about where the time has gone. My son is turning 20 years old in a few days time and it only seems like yesterday that he was a baby. I’m not sure if my older children see me as their Superhero like they did when they were younger, but interestingly they still come to me for advice or just to bounce ideas off about their lives. What has come to my attention is how we are as dads when… [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.

Decorating A Child’s Bedroom With A Twist

Decorating a children’s bedroom can be very difficult, especially if you have twin girls as I do. Their characters, personalities and tastes are polar opposites. That means somehow we have to find a theme that both the girls are happy with, and believe me that is something that is incredibly difficult. You would think with me being a painter and decorator that decorating the girls bedroom would be a walk in the park, well, the decorating will be easy enough, that’s what I do everyday, but it is the decisions of what is going onto the wall that will be… [Read More]

Giving The Girls Bedroom A Facelift With New Duvet Covers

We live in a two bedroom bungalow, we have one bedroom and our seven year twin girls share a bedroom. A perfect arrangement you would think. Well not quite! Our twin girls are total opposites when it comes to their tastes and interests. In fact I call them my Superhero and Princess because of their personalities and character being so different. So when it comes to their bedroom, it’s always very difficult to keep both the girls happy. Their bedroom usually ends being divided into two completely different themes. So here are a few ideas to give a kids bedroom… [Read More]
