From the age of 3 until 18, we are put through our paces learning about science, maths and the english language.  There are a lot of subjects which are taught in school which are very useful and help us develop as people in our early years – but there are also a lot of things we aren’t taught about which could impact our lives as we grow into adulthood. Today I want to take a look at some of the top subjects which should be taught to all children during their school years.  1. Nutrition Healthy eating is the…

    3 Ways to Keep Kids Active During the Summer Holidays

     Summer holidays are great, because more sunshine means more time outside, instead of being crowded inside with toys and gadgets!  For children, their school holidays are often what makes their childhood. If not planned carefully, however, the costs of various events and activities can add up very quickly! It’s no surprise that boredom and spending extra money around the holidays can cause a strain on even the happiest of families. Time off school can also mean that kids forget how to learn.

    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. As they got older, they also got wiser and better at tricking…

  • Why I chose to be a work at home mum

    Before I had kids I always imagined myself as a career woman. Over the years I moved from one job to another depending on where I lived. I worked as Human Resources Specialist, Warehouse Manager and in my last field as a full time job in Supply Chain Management. When my youngest was born and we moved closer to my parents I knew that none of the jobs mentioned above was possible. Thankfully, I already started to have a little bit of income through this blog which help greatly for a mum of two young children with her husband working away. However, at the moment advertising and sponsored posts through my…

    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. I remember that at the beginning I had to carry my daughter with me in every single room – even when I had to use the toilet or take a shower.  It was truly draining but I preferred that instead of leaving my baby cry in her cot or leaving her unsafe in the living room. But things got especially hard when she started to move around crawling and toddling around. Her safety was the most important thing to me.  Soon we discovered baby playpens –…

  • Signs of depression in children

    There are almost 6 years since I discovered that I suffer of depression. At the beginning my GP just label it as PND – postnatal depression. 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. You see my mum suffered of depression when she was pregnant with me and after that when she had a stillbirth. 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…
