Car Journeys With Kids - #CarSeatConundrums

21 April 2016

Kiddicare have teamed up with Dr Elizabeth Kilbey, a well known child psychologist to get her views on how to balance the need for safe driving with the need to answer the questions to make sure your child feels safe and doesn’t get upset when they can’t see you. Her view is that often the child is just reaching out for a connection. It’s easy to forget that they can’t really see you, and that they don’t have your attention. To the child they won’t realise you are completing a task that in some situations can be difficult. Often the question doesn’t need a ‘correct’ answer, just an answer so that the child can connect with you. It’s their way of making sure you are still there and still there for them even though you are doing something else.

Planning A Villa Holiday With The Kids

20 April 2016

This time last year we were looking forward to our first Summer holiday abroad as a family of four. Usually we are looking at holidays a year in advance as we like to ensure we find somewhere family friendly with lots of facilities and activities to keep the boys entertained.  I love having a holiday booked but unfortunately this year we have absolutely nothing planned. Now that the days are brighter it has put me in the mood to start looking at holidays.

Should ALL Children Be Included In Mainstream Schools?

13 April 2016

Working as a Nursery Nurse has opened by eyes to all sorts of things that I probably wouldn't be aware of if I had a different profession. One thing I know for sure is that we are taught that all children should be included no matter what.
