Socialising With Other Peoples Kids

As a parent, one of the most confusing things you may have to deal with is how to relate children other than your own. This includes your children’s friends and classmates but also people you might meet on the street or out running errands.

Because we live in such a socially integrated world it is very common, these days, for adults to have casual friendships with people who are much younger than them. Usually this is done online through one of the popular social networks but in tight-knit communities it can also occur in person.

Can A Man Take Over The Women’s Duties So We Can Be Working Mums?

In this day and age, gender roles are quickly disintegrating. It is now very common for women and men to fill traditional gender roles that were solely believed to belong to the opposite gender by previous generations.

This is partially due to economics: families need more money to live the kinds of lives that they feel they deserve. This has resulted in dual-income households. Of course with more children being born out of wedlock and divorces becoming more commonplace men and women both need to work to support the children they make.

When the global recession hit us, I never let my son feel its effect, although I told him that we should be wiser with our spending. There was financial stress but I did not tell him how his dad and I go through everything because I don’t want to scare him or let him feel the pressure. Besides, he is just a kid and so there is no point of telling him all these financial troubles happening worldwide.

An Honest Review – BeAble.Name – Helping Your Children Strive With Their Learning

When you’re a working mum there are always so many things to think about and many of those things seem to involve the children. It can be easy to lose touch with the basics and some sound advice in this area would be welcomed by so many mums, including myself.

Imagine how pleased I was when I a friend recommended that I take a look at a website which has been put together by a lady called Lorraine Capon. Lorraine is an experienced teacher and working mother who has put together a series of books in the Be Able range which are about as down to earth as you could possibly get. The books range from how to become a tutor all the way to poetry that is written in a way that gets the point across to children on some often tricky subjects.
