  • How do you give your child the best start in life?

    Reading together was something my parents did with me and I now do with my kids, even 10 minutes is amazing to help them get the best start in life!

    Also I'm a firm believer in answering the questions they ask, even the hard ones and being honest about the world. Kids know understand more than we give them credit for and are super resilient. I try to answer their questions, look up information with them if I don't actually know the answer and not dismiss their questions as 'something for adults' or 'not for you to know, you're a child'. Essentially being honest!
