Life with older kids

 

I am going to start writing about life with older children – probably life with my older children and I’ll see if I can get some other parents to share their experiences as well – because the challenges don’t end when they stop being being babies and toddlers, they just shift and posts about older children might be of use to some of you.

 

The posts will look at issues such as

sleepovers

tantrums and attitude

rules, boundaries and chores

pocket money

school

child development and their differing needs as they grow

siblings

the ongoing work/life/family juggle

getting out and about

play, entertainment and getting creative

teenagers

the different parenting challenges

 

As much as I miss my children being little, there’s a lot to celebrate and enjoy when your children start to grow up but expect the occasional rant as well…
