English as a second language.


Living in London and teacher training in schools within London has made me realise how many children have English as a second language (EAL). Now, as an adult having the ability to speak more than one language is really looked at as an advantage. We look at those with the ability to speak more than […]


Do your children like school?

So the children are back to school this week. I’ve seen on Instagram, many children who are so excited to go back to school yet I have not seen anyone commenting that their children do not want to go back. This has got me thinking if your children like school? Do they enjoy it? Would […]


Penalised for being a parent

Have you ever felt that you was being penalised for being a parent and doing your parent duties. Whether you are a Mum or Dad, have you ever felt bad about calling in sick to work or in my case to university for skipping a day or so to care for your little one? This […]
