When choosing a bag remember it is not all about the look of it, most of all it needs to be functional and practical, and large enough to fit everything you need, but nothing that you don't.
It’s undeniable, childhood now looks nothing like we remember. Mud pies, forts and neighbourhood games have been replaced with iPads, Playstations and Gaming.
You lovingly prepare a nutritious, yummy meal and your child says, ‘Yuk, I don’t like it!’ Thud. Your head lands on the table. Devastated, bemused and desperate, you resort to scare tactics: ‘You need to eat broccoli, it prevents cancer!’ And if that doesn’t work, there’s the emotional blackmail: ‘Kids are starving in Africa, you know. They’d love to eat this meal, I’m sure.’ Then the big guns – the threatening bribe: ‘There’ll be no ice-cream if you don’t eat your lettuce!’

What is Easter? Why do we have bunnies delivering eggs? Are you ready with your chocolate alternatives?
The story of the Easter Bunny is thought to have become common in the 19th century; Rabbits usually give birth to a big litter of babies (kittens), so they became a symbol of new life. Legend has it that the Easter bunny lays, decorates and hides eggs as they are also a symbol of new life. Modern day kids love to go on egg hunts, and these can be so much fun when done with friends and family.
Over the past few decades, as with many other holidays, Easter has become extremely commercialised, and shops are pumping out Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies, Easter clothing for kids, and Hot Cross Buns - just after Christmas!
Last week our friend’s daughter Harlem was bullied on the bus home from her primary school. After speaking with her friend the following day, they found out who the little bully-boy was & what he'd said, so Harlem’s folks went to see the Principal immediately. The Principal phoned the bully-boy’s father to let him know what was happening, and naturally, the father wasn't happy at all. Just a couple of days later, when Harlem was dropped off at school, the little bully-boy apologised for what he'd done & gave Harlem a bag (pictured) with a couple of goodies & a card he'd made to say sorry. Harlem’s mumma cried when she saw it, and said her heart felt like it was going to explode. “This right here is parenting done right!! It doesn't take much to be a good parent, or person for that matter. This has made our day!”
