Accidentally deleted this post somehow? Anyway.. #whitepeople buy @laylafsaad book. White parents buy this #antiracism book from @inclusivestorytime. If you think you don’t need to do this work that is an indicator you DEFINITELY need to do it. We are all complicit in holding up and benefiting from #whitesupremacy. If this makes you feel defensive #checkyourprivilege. Working through these books as a family is important. We have a moral responsibility to raise our children right. We have a moral responsibility to hold ourselves accountable, especially in regards to staying silent to injustice and prejudice. DO THE WORK. The only way to combat this is to start working on yourself, and your families, and encouraging other white people to do the same. Thank you to @inclusivestorytime for helping me find a child friendly workbook (beautifully illustrated and super quick delivery!) ♥️ #parenting101 #antiracist #whitesupremacy #motheranddaughtergoals #fatherlove #parentingishard #parentinghacks.

We spoke earlier in the week about the importance of taking care of yourself and your mental health. ​Tonight I thought it might be nice to share with each other the activities you enjoy doing for you. ​Tell us in the comments below what you like to do in your ‘me’ time.

👋 Hey guys! Every now and then I'm getting cabin-fever vibes from our son, so I put my thinking cap on to create something very simply by re-organising and re-purposing Oliver's activities 😀 xx -------- -- STORY KITS -- I put this together from my love of linking stories to activities! ✅It's a great way to consolidate a concept. ✅ It gives your child's activities a sense of purpose. ✅It's also a fun way to introduce or enhance a child's interest in a variety of stories!! . A story kit is essentially a box or a bag you give your child containing a story and several activities to do with that story! . 🧩🎨🧸I try and make sure there are just a couple of activities targeting different areas of development. These activities include: - Puzzles - Craft/Construction - Imaginative Play - Writing - Sensory . ⚠️NOTE // ✴ Depending on the activity I only allocate about 45mins to go through the kit. ✴ And I'll ONLY bring these out when I notice he is wandering/bored/cabin fever-ish! (Last minute resort to keep the novelty alive.) . ➡️ SWIPE to see a range of story kits I've made and will use with Oliver! 😍 . I'll be popping them into a kraft bag to create the sense that it's a little gift from the shops 😀 . 😘😘

Do your kids play with barbies? The first time a friend gave my girls Barbies I had a small body-image-researcher-meltdown…⁠ ⁠ You see, I’ve wrote articles about Barbie, I know all of the research on this topic. I thought I could avoid us having Barbies (hah!) ⁠ ⁠ But the good news is that it’s not all bad. A classic study conducted an experiment and found that playing with a Barbie doll did not make girls feel bad about themselves (Anshutz and Engels, 2010). ⁠ ⁠ Now, new work out of the US has found that girls (aged 3-10) reject Mattel’s attempt at a curvier Barbie doll anyway. Girls more frequently selected the original doll as being happy, smart, having friends, pretty, and helping others, and the curvy doll was more commonly selected as having no friends, not being pretty, mean). Girls most commonly identified the curvy doll as the doll that they would not want to play with, and the most common reason for this was her size: Children referred to the curvy doll as “big,” “fat,” or “chubby,” while the original doll was commonly described as “pretty.” (Harriger et al., 2019)⁠ ⁠ So, what does this mean for us as parents? We can’t control everything- even the gifts that our kids get- but we can control some of the messages that we tell them about weight and body image. ⁠ ⁠ Talking to kids about the way that we love the way that all bodies are different, the fact that all bodies can do different things well, and appreciating bodies for their function rather than just their appearance might help to reduce their bias against larger weight and protect them from developing a negative body image. ⁠ ⁠ #barbie #christmaspresents #somanypresents #birthdaypresents #toys #somanytoys #barbiedoll #bodyimage #selfesteem #curvybarbie #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bopo #bodyacceptance #bodypositivity #realbodies #kidsbodyimage #parenting101 #parentgoals #parentingskills #peacefulparenting #realmum #realmom #research #bodyimageresearch #bodydiversity #confidentkids #happykids

☀️ happy like Sunday mornings ☀️ this morning we’ve taken it really slow , watching movies on Disney+ and playing sonic forces on the PlayStation. Had a bit of a panic when I couldn’t see the ducks outside ... turns out they are sitting in their house on there eggs that I havnt bought inside yet ... 🤔 does that mean they are going to have babies 😱 I’d feel a bit mean taking them in now 😬 we have nothing planned for today .. like most days at the moment just spending quality time with my loves . Hope everyone is ok and staying safe ! #mummy #mummylife #mummyblogger #mummyandme #blogger #bloggerlife #bloggersofinstagram #sunday #sundayfunday #sundaymornings #sundayvibes #family #familytime #familyfirst #familyiseverything #parent #parenting #parenting101

ONE CALL A DAY CAMPAIGN Who have you called today? “ one call a day campaign “ is a support network , community and awareness campaign for those who are feeling vulnerable , anxious , lonely and overwhelmed. “ one call a day “ is aimed at raising awareness in our community to making sure each one of us makes a phone call or a video call to someone important in our lives every single day. It doesn’t cost anything to check in on a loved one. By all of us making a call to someone every single day , we can make a huge difference to those impacted during isolation. * Those who are elderly * The vulnerable * Those suffering with anxiety and depression * The disabled. Not only can you make someone’s day , you’re also letting someone know you’re thinking of them during this worldwide crisis. That their not alone. One called a day has been launched to help those throughout the Covid 19 crisis however this could be an excellent way to help us stay connected every single day. Be sure to SHARE this with the hashtag #onecalladay And to follow the Instagram page @onecalladay_ and Facebook page @onecalladay_

You’d think being holed up inside would send this little one crazy and desperate to get out but it’s quite the opposite. All she wants to do is stay in, build houses, play with her toys and hang with the cats - (which I might add is the complete opposite of what we want to do). Even going out in the garden, she has a passing interest and it’s driving us nuts! . Are your kids like this and any tips of activities or things to do in a walk? I think she’s sees straight through my “let’s go find fairies” idea since we’re still to find a single one 🤣😖😫 #letsgetoutthehouse #homebird #cabinfever

E A S T E R // How are you celebrating Easter next week ? (Yep, anyone else almost forget with all that’s going on right now ? 🙋🏻‍♀️) . We’re definitely missing social interactions for the kiddies, that needed break for us parents 🤪 and having the kids see our families so for now, we keep a cooking and distract the kiddies for the 720 mins a day that they’re awake☀️☺️ . These easy savoury muffins have been adapted from @healthylittlefoodies (a winner straight outta the oven for my 13 month old) do press save ⭐️ for a great lunch idea . R E C I P E • one grated carrot (squeezed) • one grater zucchini (squeezed) • Corn + peas • 2 Eggs • 1/4 cup oil • 1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt • 1/2 cup of milk • 1 cup flour • 2 tsp baking powder • 1 cup of grated cheese . Mix the wet ingredients, fold in the dry ingredients and bake at 180C degrees for 25 mins - pop extra cheese on top for extra crunch!

I would give up anything for you I have refused to be a couch potato all my life. Staying home is one of the hardest thing to do for me even normally. I'm sure It's challenging for y'll too. Being in isolation is tough. The urge of grabbing something from a mall comes every now and then. But this little guy, I would just do or give up anything for him. Just a thought of being separated from my baby scares the hell outta me. I wouldn't put my or anybody else's family in danger. 🌼 🌼What's keeping your mind at home? 🌼 🌼 . PS.

There is so much truth in this. Life with our son with ADHD is a challenge. And he’s just now hitting puberty so we’ve got the double whammy going. He’s a good kid with a solid heart — he just struggles to make the right choices and, like any human, doesn’t enjoy the consequences of those decisions. My wife and tell ourselves constantly that we are helping him grow into a happy adult. . . #ADHD #adhdparenting #adhdproblems #adhdmemes #adhdlullaby #parenting101

It’s a good idea to ask a child this age to pick up her blocks and dirty clothes. Child-development experts say giving toddlers small chores helps boost their self-esteem and makes them feel as though they're an important part of the family. - Follow @ebabyzoom - - - #ebabyzoom

It's hard to believe but Easter is just a bunny hop away. And although celebrations will look a little different than usual for many of us, we hope it'll be with those you love. In the meantime, we can all spread a little extra joy through some cheery spring crafts - and what's cuter than Pasta Easter Eggs? Here's how to make them! START WITH THESE SUPPLIES Macaroni Noodles – Fusilli Noodles – Penne Noodles – Cereal Box or Similar Cardboard – Acrylic Paint – Extra Strong Non-Toxic Glue or Hot Glue (adults only!) Then, it's as easy as cutting out the easter egg shapes, painting the noodles (tip: it's best to put paint in a ziploc bag and slosh them around!) and then start decorating. The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity. The most important part? Have fun! . . . . . #parenting #parenthood #momproblems #momhacks #parentingtips #motherhoodunplugged #momsofinstagram #nanniesofinstagra #dailyparenting #momhumor #momsbelike #momtruths #parenting101 #momadvice #nannyadvice #nannytips #artsandcrafts #craftproject #craftsofinstagram #crafts #craftideas #craftingfun #easter #easterfun

🎂HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLAKE!!🎂 I can’t believe one year has passed already. It’s been quite the year... going from newborn to now we have gone through all of the usual stresses of having a baby. Sleepless nights, crying with no seeming solution, and more... but it’s also brought smiles, laughs, and unforgettable memories 😌 . Blake’s personality is finally starting to show through too! He knows how to bring sunshine to our souls with his smiles and laughter. He’s just as goofy as the rest of us and lifts our spirits when we’re down. Watching him walk and show his fearless determination also makes us joyful (if not also worried for the older years 😂). . We love you Blake! Happy Birthday one year old! 😊 #birthdayboy #happybirthday

I am so not a routine person and daily schedules tend to drive me nuts. However, in this time of no routines and schedules, I’m finding I need something to keep at least me grounded. So I’ve committed to the #next90challenge with @msrachelhollis ! Getting to see her in Toronto, just before the world did a 180, was incredible. Have you ever left a conference pumped and ready to put the things you have learned in place, but then you get home and... well you know; your notebook gets put on a shelf, your goals get put to the side, you promise yourself that you will get back to it next Monday, next week, next month... Not this time! Though when I was asking the Universe for more time, I didn’t think it would respond like this! I have decided to find meaning in this gift of time and and use it to restore a sense of calm and order to a life that was beginning to feel crazy and chaotic! Part of this challenge includes committing to 5 to Thrive - 5 actions that you focus on every day, and while that may seem like a lot given what’s going on around us, I was doing some of them already, now I’m just doing them with more intention. Here are the basics: ⏰ Get up an hour earlier. Which for now I’m interpreting as at least before ALL the kiddos are up! I’m loving not having my day start with an alarm! 💦 Drink half your body weight in water every day. So much easier when staying home! 🏃🏻‍♀️ Move your body every day. Well if you have been following me for a while, you know I already do this (thank you Accountability Groups and a plan to follow)... but I’m upping it to going outside every day for a walk! 🐶 is helping with this one! 📚 Write down 5 things you are grateful for every day. There is power in putting pen to paper, and I’m making the kids do this too! 🥗 Give up a category of food that you know is not good for you. This one is probably the hardest, though right now I’m just working on ending the mindless snacking while we watch movies in the evening. I welcome you to join me in this challenge, because you know that you are #madeformore and now is your chance! 😘

Menurut buku karangan How to Raise Successful People dari Esther Wojcicki bahwa anak yang mandiri akan mampu menghadapi kesulitan, kemunduran, dan semua aspek kehidupan nantinya. ⁣ Anak-anak yang belajar dalam mengendalikan diri dan tanggung jawab sejak dini jauh lebih siap untuk menghadapi tantangan di saat dewasa nanti dan juga memiliki keterampilan untuk berinovasi dan berpikir kreatif.⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣Hal sesederhana meletakkan sendiri kembali mainan ke tempatnya itu juga bisa mengajarkan kemandiriannya, nah Mammin coba beli pijakan untuk Si Kecil bisa naik dan meraih tempat yang agak tinggi untuk mengajarkan kemandiriannya.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Hal yang merangsang kemandirian apa yang sudah kamu ajarkan ke Si Kecil?⁣⁣ __⁣ ⁣ __⁣ #sayanganak #balita #anaksehat #ayahbunda #paud #buahhati #parentingislami #parentinganak #busui #anakku #keluargabahagia #mpasi #mpasihomemade #mpasirumahan #mpasi6bulan #mpasisehat #ibuhamil #ibumenyusui #bayiasi #parenting #anakpinter #parentingindonesia #anakbunda #parentingquotes #parentingtips #edukidstoys ⁣ __⁣ repost @parentalk.id#parentingproblems #parentingskills #parenting101 #parentinggoals

Some days I feel resilient and on top of the world, and other days, not so much.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's helping is to simply allow my feelings to come and go. I notice my sadness, grief, and anxiety and I allow it to pay a visit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I journal, walk outside, text a friend, take a hot shower, zone out on YouTube, or read because those are what help on tough days and I rest, knowing the next day will be a new day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I focus on things one day at a time and I focus on what I can control, which is my perspective, my presence, and helping others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I also remind myself that this won't be forever and is just a small blip of our lives. I also remind myself how amazing the Internet is, especially during this time. We have the ability to stay connected with each other, which is truly a gift. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks for reading this. How are you doing? What's been on your mind? What are your struggling with? What are you grateful for? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sending you all so much love as we walk into a new month,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dr. Jazmine⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, next week is PLAY CHALLENGE WEEK!!!!! Every day next week we will be devoting 1:1 play time with our little ones and coming together to share our experiences, challenges, questions, and best of all - play pictures!

Still, we can all relate to the fact that life goes on - and we've still been receiving some important parent and nanny questions in our inbox. Here goes another one sent in from an awesome Canadian nanny. Q: "Hi Nanny Marya! I am a nanny of two awesome boys under ten from downtown Toronto. I have been working with this family for about three years and haven't had any problems until recently when it comes to payment. But obviously with COVID-19, money can be tight. But now we are going on a month late and I don't want to lose the work in times of such precarious employment. What do you think I should do?" A: "Thanks for reaching out! This is such an unpredictable time where we all need to be a little more gentle with one another. As always, this is where communication is key. If you are keeping up your commitments, you should be receiving payments on time, too. We would recommend approaching them candidly and asking if there is some financial issue so you are in-the-know. Make sure to make arrangements for future payments to ensure they are on time. Life still goes on and bills need to be paid, so we all need to do our part in keeping up routines as much as possible. Good luck." Nannies, are you facing similar employment issues? Do you have different advice than what we've come up with?

This post made me think about homeschooling right now...even if you are NOT saying these things directly, kids may feel it based on your nonverbals...be mindful....parents are stressed...kids are stressed...remember, parents are NOT teachers...you are not expected to teach the curriculum to your child while you're busy doing your own job...this is a unique year...marks are to be based on how your child has performed at school thus far...those who want to do better can always do the assigned work...this time is not supposed to be more stressful...communicate with your child's teachers...you can still help your child in their areas of weakness by making lessons and games functional and practical to their day-to-day functioning...for example, use cooking to help them understand fractions and measurements. Schedule 1 hour of learning time. Elementary students can read and practice basic math operations which is easily accessible online. Encourage your kids to read anything, whether it is lyrics to a song online or a book...you can even put the closed caption on so they can read along while watching a tv show. Be creative. Be mindful. Keep the child/parent interaction intact. www.tvokids.com is an excellent resource #mindfulparenting #parenting #parenthood #parentingtips #parenting101 #parentingadvice #parentinggoals #familygoals #childdevelopment #raisingchildren #raisingtoddlers #raisingteens #raisingtweens #healthyparenting #healthykids #parentingteens #parentingtoddlers #parentingtweens #covid19andkids #parentingduringcovid19 #homeschoolingduringcovid #teachingkids

We all knew it was going to be very challenging! But there's gotta be some positives to home school/virtual school. Can you think of any? 🤔 #HappySunday #InspirationalQuotes #ParentingQuotes #Quotes #Sunday

AUTHORITARIAN PARENTING Authoritarian parenting is a parenting style characterised by high demands and low responsiveness. Parents with an authoritarian style have very high expectations of their children, yet provide very little in the way of feedback and nurturance. Mistakes tend to be punished harshly. When feedback does occur, it is often negative. Yelling and corporal punishment are also commonly seen in the authoritarian style. The children of authoritarian parents tend to exhibit these effects: 😪 Associate obedience and success with love. Increased aggressive behaviour outside the home. Acting fearful or overly shy around others. Lower self-esteem. Difficulty in social situations due to a lack of social competence. Tend to conform easily, yet may also suffer from depression and anxiety. They may struggle with self-control because they are rarely able to make choices and experience natural consequences. 😩 If you can identify with this style of parenting, it may be helpful to do some reading on more empathetic and modern parenting styles.
