Extra-curricular activities give children the opportunity to develop their skills in various areas so children develop a number of interests and talents - but be care ful not to over-schedule.
Over parenting is a new normal for today's mums and dads who, as dedicated as they may be, still succumb to overindulging, overprotecting and overscheduling their children.
Have you ever wondered how often your kids say "Mum"? One mother decided to find out.
Earlier this month, a mother took her 10-year-old son into a clothing store in Raleigh, North Carolina, whose motto is "Just for Girls!"
A Florida mum has attracted criticism for giving her six-year-old girl a rainbow-coloured unicorn-inspired haircut.
One mum's beautiful and honest post about the ongoing pull between meeting our children's needs and fulfilling our own, has resonated with mothers across the globe.
It was a moment that had the potential to change my son's life.
Some children are "slow to warm up" or engage with others, but do engage well after initial hesitancy. Also, some children grow out of shyness during primary school. However, other children demonstrate persistent shyness over time.

"If you give a girl a different toy, she will tell a different story."
An Australian schoolgirl who revealed she was transgender to her classmates in a heart-warming video on Youtube has been praised for her bravery.
Finding that balance between active engagement and suitable distance with your children.
My kids used to talk on their toy phones, now they take selfies with them. It's a sign of the times.
