My Child is Being Bullied - What Should I Do?

Peggy is also the author of Say Something, an award-winning children’s book that helps parents and educators start conversations with kids about actions they can take when they are being bullied, or are a witness to other kids being tormented at school. "The injury is real when kids get teased — unchecked, it can be devastating. " Are name-calling and teasing just part of growing up, a rite of passage that all kids go through? "Many people out there think that adults are making too much of a fuss about it, that we should leave kids to their own devices. We know better now,” argues Peggy. EP sat down with Peggy and asked her what parents can do when they suspect their child is being bullied, and what they can do—together—to try to stop it.

Want a simple way to teach your kids the value of money?

And I think she had a point ! I’m always fascinated by all areas of raising happy, confident children so I read with interest this article about Seb’s story from Goldstar Savings Bank which is a new website and app that’s all about teaching and practising the important core financial life skills that will help your child start forming good habits early on. I know my own children have learnt their money habits and mindset from my way of talking about money, handling money, spending and saving money as we are all important role models for our own children ! In this unique app your kids can set up a savings goal and break it down into small manageable tasks and activities that you can set a monetary value against. Using the ‘Star Bank’ they can then explore and experiment with lots of different ideas and strategies to complete the tasks over a set time that you both agree on. Seb really wants a new bike.

Chinatown "Woking" Tour

This one Lars and I did with friends - sans Max. Sometimes (well, most of the time) it is easier to do things here while Max stays at home with the yaya. This walking tour was more of an eating tour so come hungry! To be honest, I wanted to do more exploring than walking (I eat enough as it is anyway!) But still it was very interesting.

We have a 3-month-old baby girl who smells like milk and smiles at us a hundred times a day. Work-wise I truly enjoy what I do, and I’m so thankful for not having to keep a 9 to 5 job. Even when I was a fresh grad looking for work, I knew that what I really wanted was to have control over my own time. I turned 37 this January, and don’t feel quite as young as I used to. After our second child’s birth, I went through a brief period of postpartum depression.

Things got better eventually, of course they did. So I started thinking of specific, actionable things (things I actually had some control over) that would make my life significantly happier, good day or bad. 2. Sometimes it’s the little things. 3. Fam Ed.
