Labelling school supplies is very useful for kids to identify their stuff from among similar ones in school. It is also especially useful when someone in school finds a misplaced, lost or forgotten item and can easily trace it back to the child when there is a name on it!
The ice skating rink outside the Arkady mall Pankrac, is a really nice rink for beginners and kids. The rink is not too large, well maintained, and outside – so the sun actually pours in if its a sunny day!
I know it’s still summer but it’s just 3 weeks before school starts again. It’s that time of the year when mums start preparing for school: Shopping for school supplies, uniforms, sports accessories, lunch boxes and more! And of course, along with the new school year, begins the task of labelling the ‘new school stuff’.
My little boy just will not eat dinner, let alone vegetables. Well, let me be honest, he eats but needs to be coaxed to do so. I tried everything, talking it out, being stern, being kind, preparing his fav-food, letting him skip a meal so he is hungry – but NO. It’s also true that kids of a certain age, get their mind off routine tasks (like eating!) and focus on more interesting things like games, blocks, tablets. So of course, eating is only just a mere activity that is on their back burner.
Building a child’s character is a hard job. Especially if you are in the middle of a move or just relocating. Managing tantrums, sensitivity in kids and tiding over teenage need not be all so bad. Tatiana Mironova, Child Psychologist, spoke to us about this and gave us her tried and tested opinion.
Hear the word relocation and we all are into planning the nitty gritty and details right from immigration papers, packers, work handovers, school leaving letters and doctor certificates. And in between all the busy days of planning the move and settling into a new place, it’s easy to overlook or skip the feelings of anxiety as a family.

Most of us parents went to school in a regular form of the education system with a set curriculum and pattern. But today, choosing the form of education while picking a school for our own kids, has become hard for parents as we are spoilt for choice!
Globalisation has given us many gifts and along with it a basket of basic challenges. With a lot of people working and relocating across continents, language is one area that is always under the radar of parents while raising kids. Language challenges that we dealt with as adults when we moved out of our native countries are now faced by our children at a much younger age.
