How Has Technology Changed Parenting?

It seems a distant memory growing up as a small boy in the 1980s. I can’t really remember living in the north of England for the first 3 years of my life, before we moved to London. (apparently I fell in the pond in our back garden, which gave everyone a nasty scare!) Fast forward to today and my parents are now both in their 70s and I find it enlightening to find out what life was like for them when they brought me up. My mum stayed...

Benefits Of Positive Parenting

I try my best to be positive with Mia as much as I can. Sasha probably does it a bit better than me, as Mia certainly has her moments which can try my patience!

Positive parenting has become rather popular recently as more and more parents try to understand how to...

Pros And Cons Of Permissive Parenting

Mia’s going through the terrible two’s at the moment. For Sasha and I, it just feels like tantrum after tantrum, followed by acts of kindness and genuine empathy. She’s like a mini Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde 🙂 I didn’t read up on parenting styles at all when Sasha was pregnant. I just figured we’d both be the best parents we could be.
