Making Brushing Your Teeth Fun For Kids

Thanks to Aimee for this guest post on making brushing your teeth fun for kids.

 

Taking care of kids isn’t for the faint hearted, and morning and bedtime routines can feel like the toughest of battles. Trying to get your child to stand and brush their teeth for 2 minutes twice a day might seem hard enough never mind getting them to have fun as well!

It isn’t always easy but it is crucial to form these good oral care habits from an early age. And they will thank you for it later.

Thankfully kids have the wildest imaginations, so the job doesn’t have to be entirely up to you.

You can share it with – The Tooth Fairy.

Appeal to your child’s fun and vivid imagination by conjuring up this classic and well-loved tale of the magic tooth fairy who collects shiny and healthy teeth in return for rewards. The better story you conjure up, the more your child is going to want to make her happy.

My Hospital Care Story on the Journey to have my Daughter

Over a year ago I wrote about my birth story. Now as I’m newly pregnant with baby number 2, I have lots of time to reflect on the care I received during my hospital stay. In fact it’s given me plenty of time to look back on the start of my medical care, from 2013 on that day I started miscarrying….

Don’t get me wrong the NHS is a godsend to this country, but we all know unfortunately it’s not what it used to be. Staff are overstretched and underpaid. At times like these the phrase clinical negligence crops up all too often.

Alternative Ways To Get Active Without Going To The Gym

Now I just want to say that I’ve never been much of a gym bunny. To be honest I can’t think of anything worse than going to the gym seeing sweaty bodies grunting and straining away, I would rather go on walks, or hikes out in the fresh air. Don’t get me wrong, if going to the gym is your thing, I have nothing against it, it’s just not my cup of tea.

gym - alternative ways to get active

I have friends who are proper hardcore gym bunnies, going to classes at least one a day sometimes two! Spinning away on their little bikes. Good for them getting something out of it. In fact I do admire their commitment to keeping fit and active. I do wish sometimes I had more time to get out and get active myself, but it’s not possible with a clingy 16 month old at the moment and other work commitments.

Help A Loved One Who’s Ill

It is an inevitable aspect of life, but it is also an unpleasant one. All of us succumb to illness during our lives, with some obviously more perilous than others.

There are illnesses which are much more hazardous to our health, and ones which can affect us for the rest of our lives. There is no need to mention these as we all know which types are the most dangerous and which can affect us the most.
