How to Teach Children to Tell the Time

Our twin girls recently turned seven. They’re both clever, kind, caring girls who have a natural thirst for learning. I’m always amazed at the things they tell me they’ve learnt in school. In particular when they showed me some multiplication they’d learnt in school, I was amazed at how easy they’d found it. Like many children, R and M, have a number of watches.

You simply pull the tab out of the back and then lay them on the floor. It’s suggested that you lay them on a hard… [Read More]

International Blog Swap Day

A few weeks ago, the lovely people over at TOTS100 invited some bloggers to join in with an international blog swap with Australian Parent Bloggers.  I was teamed up with Kylie and here is her post to introduce herself and her blog to you! Hi There!  My name is Kylie, but you can call me Kylez. I blog at Kylie Purtell – A Study in Contradictions, which is something my Mother called me once.
