Why is there such judgement over having a C-section?

  I read a tweet at the weekend by an antenatal blogger, bemoaning the fact that the number of C-section operations are rising in the UK. When I did my prenatal classes, I remember there was a very short section at the end about what would happen if you had to...

Is choice a good thing?

  We are incredibly fortunate to live in a time where there are so many extra-curricular activities for our children to try and enjoy. When I was growing up in South Wales, my choices were limited to dance, sport or music lessons. Yet, nowadays children can try yoga,...

Acting should be fun for children - not work

  I found this blog post last night written by film director Ben Gregor (yes – I know it was written last year, but better late than never!). The full article is well worth reading, but let me share the first paragraph with you...

Why drama training can help in business too

My last post about why drama is beneficial prompted some parents to comment on the positive impact attending Perform classes has had on their children. While it's great to receive that feedback, it made me think more about how that positive impact affects us throughout our...

Did anyone read this story recently about a grandfather in Kent who went to pick up his granddaughter and was given the wrong child? He took this child to a doctor's appointment where she was prescribed liquid paracetemol and then took her back to school. At the end of...

Children, fresh fruit and vegetables - are we too obsessed?

I had to share this piece by Tim Lott in The Observer last week. Tim talks about the struggle he had to get his eldest daughter Ruby to eat fruit and vegetables as a child. Ruby refused to eat anything remotely healthy and the article starts with him talking about the...

Why I hate the word Mumpreneur

I really can't stand the term Mumpreneur. If you haven't heard it before, it simply means a Mum who is also...(you guessed it)... an entrepreneur. And, as a Mum who is an entrepreneur myself, you may wonder why I hate it so much.After all, what's to dislike?...

The Shy Princess

OK, I'm going to come clean. I have a guilty pleasure...and that's the new Disney cartoon Sofia the First. If you haven't seen it, it's a series about a young girl whose mother marries the King and therefore becomes Royal overnight. The episodes are based...
