Why Your Preschooler Should Do an Organised Sport

Pin It

When my boys were little, I used to compare them (unkindly maybe) with puppies. Providing they had plenty of affection and were allowed to run around a lot outside, they were happy. Preschoolers are natural little whirlwinds of energy and need masses of exercise. Physical activity keeps little ones fit, healthy and strong, helps them relax and sleep better and is FUN!

This blog is for the second category.

What to Do When Your Child Says They're Bullied

Pin It

My (primary aged) children frequently claim they're 'bullied' - even by each other:

"He's bullying me, he won't let me use the bathroom."

"I got bullied by some Year 5 girls today - they told me I wasn't allowed to play on the monkey bars."

"Cooper was so rough - he's such a bully!"
