In order to be the best mother you can possibly be, you have to be completely confident in yourself. One of the easiest ways to do this is to change up some of your current lifestyle habits, so that you can feel refreshed, revitalized and ready to tackle anything that comes your way.
Money tends to be one of the hardest parts of life for normal people to master. Unlike the other aspects of your life, finances is a professional field, and people will study for many years before they are able to help people with it. However, as long as you’re willing to do your research, you should be able to make good decisions regardless of your prior knowledge, and this post is going to be showing you exactly where you can do it.
Is this a myth you might be thinking? Well, it pretty much is. Whether we’re talking about teenagers, young children, toddlers, or babies, there will be tantrums. We would even go as far as to say tantrums happen even when everyone is all grown up, and thinking about starting families of their own (admit, you sometimes behave like a 2 year old!).
It is natural for clashes to happen, but we do believe they happen more when children are younger. However, it is possible to have family time without tantrums. Here are our top tips on how you can do just that, we hope they work for you!
Problem #1 – Bedtime
When bedtime comes around, some would relate it to a warzone. Screaming everywhere, bangs left, right and center, and chaos just seems to descend across the whole house. Are we being dramatic? We think not. Bedtime is notoriously hard, but if you make it family time, and make the room as inviting as you possibly can, then it actually becomes so much easier!
You can look at the high sleeper bed collection from Cuckooland and you’ll find so many different options that will get them jumping for joy to get into bed. Just being that little bit off the ground seems to make everything more exciting for them. What’s even better, if you can get them to watch a film in the bedroom with you, to truly make it a family bedtime, then they’re more likely to drift off because of the comfort levels they’ll be feeling.
If you really want to make it a family bedtime, you have to make sure that you’re all involved in it, you’ll often find it’ll make it so much quicker for the process to be over, and you might even get an early night as well!
Problem #2 – Getting Ready To Leave
Family days out. The nightmare starts when trying to get the kids ready. Coats won’t go on, shoes don’t want to be worn, and above all, every single toy must be taken. It’s a nightmare.
One way of getting out the house quicker is organizing everything the night before. Let your kids pick the outfit, the day out, and a going out toy. That way, pretty much everything is ready the night before, and the tantrums will be reduced right down to a minimum. Just make sure they actually want to go out as well. Sometimes they’re just so much happier spending the day inside!
Problem #3 – Being Stuck Inside
When they are happier spending the day inside, you need to think of fun things that they can do to keep themselves and you entertained. One idea we love is a den building day. We promise it will bring out your inner child, and it’s a great way to bond with your actual child. You can watch films, play games, or do whatever your child wants in the fort. They’re so easy to put up, and so easy to take down…
So there you have it, 3 events that create family tears and some quick and easy ways to restore peace again. I would even bet they could work when dealing with the adult tantrums that are bound to happen too, I bet money conversations under a tent in the living room would go alot better!
There are no two ways around it – car repairs cost big bucks. Hence why we hold our breath whenever our vehicles go to the garage. Before signing off to those mechanics, we imagine the hefty bills which could land in laps. If we’re lucky, we get by with only minimal work. In the worst case scenario, though, the garage may phone to let you know that you need replacement parts. Continue reading “3 Reasons You Should NEVER Buy Used Car Parts!”
Moving an elderly parent into your home may seem like a simple task. Unfortunately this it may not be so simple after all, and if you are not careful then you could end up with a lot of jobs to do in a very short space of time.
Monetary compensation is a relatively taboo topic that a lot of people don’t really want to talk about. This is probably due to negative coverage on the subject from the media. You wouldn’t want to just be someone who made another ridiculous lawsuit and tried to get billions for nothing, right??
Most people experience at least once in their lifetime a toxic relationship. Toxic relationships are so described because they ultimately cause you more pain than good. However, while they might be easy to explain on paper, they are tricky to identify in real life – especially if you are in the middle of it.
It doesn’t really matter what you are saving for. A rainy day, a vacation to a far-off destination, or maybe just a little treat.
A long stay in the hospital can be pretty scary, but sometimes it’s necessary. If you need to recover from an illness or you need an operation, you require medical help to get you well again. However, while you should be concerned about getting better, you can be left worrying about money.
