Still getting lots of enjoyment out of this!
This week we're road testing the Lucky Gecko subscription box. Not just a box of treats - though your kids will love it - this is a monthly collection of educational activities that will inspire them to learn more. They probably won't even realise they're learning! Have a look what's inside, and how we found using the box. #AD

Not long left on this offer. Closes Saturday
The offer on this has just been extended for bookings made by close of play on Sunday. Great saving on the entry price if you're thinking of going to Thorpe Park over the summer, plus if you stay in the Thorpe Shark hotel you get an early start and free fast passes before the crowds arrive!

This is SO important. Happy holidays all...
Make sure you're prepared before you go on holiday this summer. Carbon monoxide kills, but there's a really simple way to protect your family.

I love the Channel Islands - I'm so lucky to have family living there
The island of Guernsey has the most stunning views! It's perfect for a family holiday from the UK, and has a fascinating war time history:

Not surprisingly, there is a lot of disagreement over this
Would you let your child watch 13 Reasons, the Netflix drama about a teenager who commits suicide? And how young is too young, do you think, to let this issue onto their agenda? I've written some thoughts on it in this post, after it became clear that a lot of her year group at school have seen it.

If you're a year 6 parent, your thoughts will have move on from the hell of SATs, to preparing your child for secondary school. Be warned, this is going to be the biggest parental learning curve you've ever faced!

Who agrees?
Reasons why you definitely SHOULD take your children on foreign holidays. We're disputing +The Telegraph's contention this week that kids are happier when they stay at home. And so are lots of other families who like to travel. What's your take on this argument?
