Slow parenting is really hard

It’s so easy to turn to the ‘one eyed baby sitter’ ( the TV !!!!!) and ask them to take over. Especially when you’re tired, especially when the kids are tired and especially when they’re driving you nuts. But hang on in there if you can. ‘If you can keep your head when everyone around you is losing theirs’ then calmly reach for the blog ‘ my son ‘ (sorry parody of the Rudyard Kipling poem ‘If’ going on there). Reach for the scissors, reach for the glue, the aprons, the baking parchment and the gardening gloves !!! Slow parenting’s the solution and slow mum’s got ideas a plenty if you need. Recipes, indoor games, outdoor adventures, craft, excursions, gardening , there’s something for everyone. Slow parenting’s not easy though, takes a bit of gumption and a hell of a lot of will power but it’s worth it by jove. Happy kids and happy you :-)))
