I sometimes wish I was an actress - I mean they have their act down to have a public meltdown... They run around shave their hair off, loose teeth due to excessive drug usage, turn lesbian and then straight all at the drop of a hat. Not to mention the trips in and out of rehab, sexologist offices, public spats and fodder to keep tabloids running a profitable business from their burnt-out. Yet here am I and I can't even convince my husband that I am falling apart...Read more »
So yesterday afternoon I get the letter from school to warn parents that they should check their kids regularly for head lice. Now the last time I thought of head lice was when I was in Primary School and one girl came to school with her hair cut in an weird way and everyone was talking behind their hands that she was the bearer of head lice. So here is a crash course in head lice.Read more »
Since Mia started crèche this year she has had a runny nose. At her two year check-up I mentioned this to the the paediatrician and she confirmed this was just a runny nose.

Choosing the right school for your child is a momentous decision, because this will affect who he becomes.Read more »

Children aren't innately ready or not ready for school. Their skills and development are influenced by their families and interaction with other people and environments.Read more »
With official statistics indicating that between 15 and 20 percent of children suffer from learning disabilities, much ignorance prevails about detection, the pschological problems and corrective measures.
A learning disability is no longer seen as a fait accompli. In fact, it's become an opportunity to journey towards new horizons of self-discovery for not only learners and parents, but educators and professionals alike.
Obviously the best of any option is for one of the parents to stay home and to look after the child but in today's day and age it is only an option to a select few. You thus need to look for other alternatives.
So now you are a working parent and thus starts the daunting task of finding a person to look after your child when you are at work.
You might ask yourself why did I start this web site, am I so much of a know it all mum? Do I have so much to say? The answer these questions are no and yes.
I do not necessarily know more about motherhood or parenting than anyone else, but I do have a lot to say. I don't think I am qualified to provide you with advice and guidance but I do want to share some of my experiences from which you might learn or at least laugh at.
According to one book this stage begins as soon as your child stops being "wayward, confusing and unpredictable" at least 60 percent of the time. This does not really bolster my moral at all. Although the pre-preschooler can still be tantrum prone, they should have mastered enough language to allow them to express themselves more often verbally.Read more »
One of the books I read outlined it that the tumultuous years a toddler has; can be explained by understanding that they do not talk - they do, where grown-ups sometimes feel they can tear their hair from their heads, toddlers do. They do not make lists, they go and fetch things one by one. You should not send them you should take them and they learn from being shown. If you as a parent understand and remember this you will be just so much more sane during this time.Read more »
Nurturing heartfelt friendships serves as life's safety net. In the hurly-burly of modern life, it's a mistake not to stay in touch with friends. Friends are supportive on good and bad days, provide pleasure for joint activities and offer personal development opportunities.Read more »
