Now most kids will sit at the kitchen table, to complete homework & readers, whilst in junior school years.  But what about when it is actually time to concentrate, turn off all distractions & study?  Then it’s time for a desk. So what are the things to bear in mind when creating a space for study? Make sure that your child is seated comfortably and correctly, especially if in front of a screen, and that there is adequate light. For older children it’s important to have enough room to spread out their books and personalize their desk space – add a pinboard if you can. Good storage around the desk is a must – if not part of the desk, use drawers on castors, stacked crates, or shelves and display boxes on the wall.

My favourite choice of pinboard, would have to be...read more at http://www.ootc.com.au/index.php?route=information/information&information_id=13

Are Your Children Fussy Eaters Too?

So, my husband was a Chef before we opened Out of the Cot and I have always loved Food, the more interesting, the better. We both grew up with lots of healthy different options, when it came to breakfast, lunch & dinner and yet….We have 2 of the Fussiest Eaters I have ever met. And the worst part, it is completely our own fault, the second worst bit is that they are fussy in exact opposite ways so we have to make 2 meals & then struggle to get them to eat it, no matter what we put in front of them.

Master 6 “The Healthy Fussy”, Caleb is our eldest child & I blame him for us having this issue, as he is what I call Healthy Fussy. From a very young age he loved vegetables, sushi, fruit, nuts and berries. This was incredibly deceiving, as he always chose healthy options we didn’t vary his diet, he lived on broccoli, chicken (often in nugget form), sausages & other assorted veggies. But by not offering lots of variety, he became unwilling to try new things & then just when we should have been encouraging new flavours, along came Miss Evie-Mae. Dealing with the new dynamic of 2 children, (& just quietly why does no-one actually tell you just how much work an additional child is) meant we let Caleb continue to eat what he wanted as it made our lives easier.
Introducing the “Starchy Fussy” Miss 3 is what I refer to as a carb addict! Potato, chips, crackers, toast, crumpets in-fact if its stodgy she’s bound to want it.

Now up until recently we have kind of let the unhealthy, unbalanced way the children eat, slide; but it’s reached the point where he have to do something about it. It’s bad enough that Caleb’s diet is limited, but it’s really not good that Evie-Mae’s is high in calories and very low in nutrients. Click the link to read more

Designing & Styling a Tween/Teenage Boys Room!

When looking to updating or perhaps designing a child’s bedroom for the first time, the hardest demographic we work with (after Tween & Teen Girls!) are Tween & Teenage boys.

Many of you with 10-15 year old boys would know that on one hand they absolutely do not want anything babyish, such as construction, cars, trains or animals, yet they are not yet old enough to really want a simple designer style.  So where does that leave us?

Well, luckily we have a number of fantastic options to work with which can create a stylish, grown up space which still feels like a child’s room.

Top Tips for Designing the Space

1) Incorporate Black

2) Don’t be afraid to Utilize Sporting Themes

3) Be prepared to let go of Red & Navy

4) Allow them to keep their favorite, toy, stuffed animal, blanket, picture – they are still kids! Read More... http://goo.gl/K4rlIF
