Toddler Bullying

This morning in our house something strange happened and it really upset me to the point I sought solice in my fellow mummy bloggers and actually sat in the car on my way to the job centre and cried as I felt so uncontrollably upset for Roo.

I was bullied as a teenager, absolutely horrendously bullied.  I had rocks and stones thrown at me, people made fun of my name, every class I attended throughout my GCSE year people would sing the BlackAdder theme tune at me.  Kids can be incredibly cruel.  I moved schools so many times over bullies, and it is behaviour I find abhorrent and intollerable at any age.  I never want Roo to go through what I went through.

Alternative Easter Gifts For Children

The Easter weekend is looming, and although this means a long, balmy four-day weekend for those without children, us parents are in for excited little-ones and inevitable sugar crashes.

To ease the sugar-load this Easter, here are some alternative gifts to go with the mounds of chocolate about to descend upon your home.

New outfit

The Easter weekend usually involves a big family roast dinner at some point, and all children love the chance to dress up in their Sunday bests whenever they get the chance – why not splash out on a new party dress for your little girl or some cool trainers for the little man in your life. Be prepared to be scrubbing out smeared in chocolate the next day though!

Make Time To Play & Get Your Kids Exercising

As someone who struggles with her weight, it is important to me that Roo grows up learning what makes her body healthy, the positives about exercise and how good it makes you feel. Even at this young age I can see the benefits that being out in the fresh air running and playing does for her and I was interested to read a study that is out today that states that just 30 minutes of active play is more beneficial for your child’s health than a standard school PE lessons.

Intrigued? Then read on.
