Parenting With Challenges

August 21, 2019

I used to be like a lot of parents and dread the summer holidays, however, over the last two summers I've enjoyed every minute of it. I think children are forced to spend far too much time in school and not enough time enjoying their childhood and learning the way they...

Next week Blake will be turning six, and I can't believe where the time has gone. I can still remember nearly every second of the day he was born. As he was placed into my arms for the first time I made a promise to him that I would give him the best life that I possib...

Blake is now five years-old and he's just started year 1 at primary school. He loves the social side of school the most, thankfully he's also keen to learn. However, the start of the school year hasn't begun without its problems, and it's made me question at what age s...

I wonder if every first time parent experiences this? Especially if you aren't planning on having anymore children. They ask for a sibling. Blake has in the past had a few comments about not wanting a sibling, but lately he's changed his mind; he now wants a baby broth...
