Don’t say NO always

You have to understand that being told that you are not allowed to do something, regardless of the age you are at, stirs a feeling of rebellion inside. Most adults are able to suppress it, but most kids don’t even try to.

Pet therapy seems to be actually working, so if your precious child is more of the spoiled or the anxious kind of toddler, you could always get a dog and train him to correct your child’s behavior. You are going to have to put a lot of trust into your furry friend, but as long as your child is going to care for him, you shall get to see him become calmer and a lot more responsible.

Kids and Holidays after Divorce

Regardless of how much you support and help your children through your divorce, the first Holiday season since the split will be painful and terrifying for your little ones. This is why you should understand that replacing the old happy memories of the holiday seasons with some new, even happier ones is mandatory.

One of the first things you should do, if you want your children to be happy and to grow up with a stable emotional health, is to involve them in decision making. Children may often feel neglected if they are not involved in decisions regarding the family and the way they will spend their holidays.

Bank Holiday Activities and Treats in 2012

Like last year, 2012 has some extra surprises in store for those of us parents who reside in the United Kingdom. I refer to, of course, our extra Bank Holidays.

Now, I know it’s important to celebrate the Jubilee (and have training for teachers!) but I’m worried about running out of ideas already and we’ve only just had the Easter holidays…
