How do you cope with a sensitive child?

Do you have a sensitive child? Who is still coming to terms with how to cope with their big emotions? Our 5 year old boy I believe is the sweetest little boy in town.  He is kind, caring and sensitive, which are beautiful traits but are also causing him some strife upon starting school this...

Creating Independent Children

every day a happy day
Do you do everything for your children? I don’t know if it’s the teacher in me or the seeing the state of some of the university student life skills in the past that makes me even more passionate about creating independent humans ready to take on the world and know they can cope and adapt...

#SchoolHolidays used to be fun!!!

The #schoolholiday juggling act.... #School holidays used to be a blast (before we bought a business and had to learn how to adult real quick)… before school holidays were a blissful array of waking up late lounging in our PJs for the morning before a quick team talk on what adventure we shall go on...

Magic Ice

Create a beautiful Necklace
Exploring the process of freezing and melting Let's be honest there isn’t much magic to this experience for our old adult eyes but children are so lucky they still get the excited twinkle in their eyes as they explore new concepts and question “whys and hows”. For our magic ice experiment you are really exploring the...

Taking their attention for granted

I want my child to be happy
My kids crave my attention ( Video ) and I'm constantly worried that life's busy schedule makes me miss all the beautiful moments I could have had with them during their childhood. Moments that will not only enrich my life but also shape theirs for the better. Kids will always crave the attention of their parents...

Why do I Always Say “NO” to My Children

my girl and son playing with water gun
