Parenting Tips (Me Over The Edge).

This week’s Friday Club theme is ‘Parenting Tips’.

Here are some of mine:

If you are going to feed a baby  pureed carrot, make sure they are wearing orange.

As a parent, it is your duty to step in if you spot a disaster about to occur.

There is no ‘proper’ way to play with toys. Let them use their imagination.

Watch your behaviour around your children. Monkey see, monkey do.

If possible, let your child have a pet. It will teach them responsibility….and might install some fashion sense.

Tempting as it may seem at the time, don’t make older children responsible for dressing their younger siblings.

Start giving children chores from an early age.

Do your best to ensure there are no hidden E numbers or artificial colours in your children’s food.

Teach your children not to jump on the furniture.

And last, but not least…

Always supervise your child when there are felt tip pens in the house.

    • The youngest has just come out the other side of about 7 weeks of drawing on his arms and legs everytime he got hold of a felt tip. He’d look fine until you rolled up his sleeve and went OMG!!!

  8. Lovely photos, haha mine haven’t ever dressed the dog but the girls have dressed the toddler up and put his hair in bunches and plaits etc.
    i hope that pen washed off easily…oops.
    great real life tips, thanks for sharing. :)

    • The perils of having older sisters I think. DS spent his 2nd Birthday party dressed as a fairy so has probably been scarred for life.
