Hands-free solutions for safe driving…
We all know that talking on your mobile phone handset whilst driving is illegal. If you are caught using your handset at the wheel you will get a fine as well as black points on your license. And it is most essential to keep your eyes on the road to be a safe driver and ensure the safety of your family. However, we all have moments, almost every day when we are doing the school run, picking up groceries, scheduling play dates and managing work, so we rely on making our calls… Continue reading

· Once a child’s palate has become accustomed to the intense sweetness of refined sugary foods it is harder for him or her to appreciate the more gentle natural sweetness of fruit. If you want your child to enjoy fresh fruit, restrict sugary foods.
· Start your baby off on a variety of different flavours. If they are used to lots of different tastes early on, children are much less likely to become fussy eaters when you try to integrate them into family meals.
· Create your own ‘healthy junk food’. Make pizza bases using… Continue reading
Living in the UAE offers many of us such a fantastic outdoor lifestyle for most of the year. For expats especially, a swimming pool in your apartment building and the sea within a few minutes’ drive is one of the many bonuses of living here. As much as this is a huge benefit, it also comes with its own dangers especially if you or your child is unable to swim.
The first essential rule before you get in to a pool (whether alone or with your child) is to know where the shallow and deep ends of the pool are.… Continue reading

Fun and safety should always go hand in hand when at the playground. Here’s how:
1. Time out! For water that is.
Make sure your little one make frequent stops to hydrate.
2. Dress code.
A kid version of smart casual is a must at the playground. Clothes that are too long or baggy can easily get caught in some of these playground contraptions.
3. Be present.
Kids love looking over at you and smiling from the top of the slide or give you a look that means “help!” Be there to receive it and take… Continue reading

We were at our book club meeting when a friend of mine mentioned that her 12 year old daughter, Susan apologized to her class mate saying “I’m sorry and I take full responsibility for what I did “ the teacher overheard this apology and swooped down on Susan and said to her “no dear you do not need to apologize this way as it was not that serious”.
Hmm….. is this where the conditioning starts?
Research states that the word ‘SORRY’originated from an old English word ‘sarig’ which means “distressed, full of sorrow” or the German word… Continue reading

WATER BOTTLE PURCHASES- there are various ways to limit the dispersion of plastic water bottles in the ocean. Purchasing a home-based water tank can help us use the water jug or recycling our water bottles for when we are thirsty. The water tanks can be collected once or twice a week with new ones which also helps recycle and cancels out the hoarding of left over plastic bottles.
LIMITING WASHING LOADS- we generally sweat more when it is hot (not as much as we would like to admit) and therefore our washing pile will grow… Continue reading
When I was eight months pregnant with my second child, I thought I was supermum and picked up my then very needy 18-month-old daughter and damaged my lower back. From that moment until I gave birth, I searched across town for natural treatments, remedies or anything that would assist with the pain. Any relief to take me through the last leg of pregnancy!
The last two months was not pleasant and I was crouched over like an old lady, unable to stand straight due to the pain. I originally thought it was my lower back; I could not walk… Continue reading
