    How to Stop Yelling at Your Children and Be a Better Parent

    As the girls get older is getting harder to make them listen and obey without  transforming myself into some kind of a growling creature. Every time I do get angry (cause let’s admit it all parents get angry and frustrated but it is about the way that they handle the situation that counts) I kind of see myself as the woman version of the Hulk.  So, I admit I do get upset and frustrated and 3 out of 10 times I find myself yelling at my gorgeous girls as they do know how to press my buttons too.

    A comprehensive guide to buying baby gates

    Deciding how to better baby proof your home before the arrival of a new baby can be quite difficult especially for first time parents.

But when I had a look at my life even before I became a mother I realised that I always suffered of some sort of depression…even when I was a child.

Plus, she told me that even her mum my grandmother suffered of depression when she was young. According to scientists 50% of the cause of depression is genetic. I find this is amazing…
