I read this over a few days with my children and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a wonderful magical and adventurous fast tale with great characters to be met along the way. As a fan of Irish mythology, this also grabbed my attention learning more about Bulgarian and Slavic myths. This will appeal Continue reading
Since having children, and the observation of how they are constantly learning , that once they can speak, sometimes that’s all they want to do they want to know everything, they speak their minds, they ask questions as that’s how they learn, it’s how we all learn. Sometimes we tend to forget however, their minds are still developing even when they can speak and whether you like it or not there are times you just gotta sit back, have a bit of patience and go with it and have a laugh.
I Got Nothing Moments
Sometimes the questions they ask, Continue reading
Curiosity is in the nature of children and so as soon they gain control over their limbs they are ready to explore the world. When the kids observe and imitate the world it helps in the development of their abilities and the connections in their brain gets stronger. This is the reason that we should let children get creative because it is the best form of exploration. While we focus on encouraging them to read and write, here we have a list of reasons that will help you understand why art is also important for Continue reading

Drugs as we know have and still are a huge problem in today’s society. The other week I was gobsmacked though after having a conversation with a friend of mine about her teenage son that had started secondary school. He came home and told her about a boy who had got caught selling drugs in the school hallway. He then went on to tell her how the kids are easily buying drugs online and arranging meet ups.
This boy was around 12 years of age. I was absolutely horrified. When you send your children to school Continue reading

I will never forget the day I decided to lock myself in the bathroom when I was having a shower, not thinking of the consequences it was going to have. This would be the first time I had locked a bathroom door since my kids were born. I was in the shower for two minutes when all hell broke loose. My two kids started kicking and banging the door and screaming their heads off. I ran out of the bathroom still covered in soap in such a temper with them. I yelled so loud at them to stop screaming at me and told them to go straight to bed because they were being bold.
They looked at me with such little sad scared faces. Later that night when I eventually calmed down after lots of tears and soul searching I thought to myself, Who am I to be yelling and making my kids feel scared? They are only little human beings that look up to me and I came across like the big bad wolf. They were not being bold, they panicked because they felt like i’d shut them out by locking the door.

Discipline is most commonly associated with punishment Continue reading
