Beauty and the Beast Brouhaha

Beauty and the Beast. To watch or not to watch?

So, unless you have been living under a rock, you would have read or heard about the “nice, exclusively gay moment” in Disney’s latest offering, Beauty and the Beast.

Encouraging sibling closeness not rivalry

Encouraging sibling closeness and not rivalry. Don't play favourites!

If there is only one lesson you get from this post, it will be this : don’t play favourites. It has long term repercussions. It may be difficult if you have one child that you constantly butt heads with. But you are the adult. BE the adult. Don’t play one child against another.

Sometimes we don’t think we are but to the children we are. (And yes, sometimes, they are being ridiculous). We just need to be aware of how certain actions and behaviours come across to the other children.
