Baby
Within a baby’s first year, it’s important to encourage as much cognitive growth as possible. This will ensure better social skills, language development, listening and communication, emotional connection, and more later in life.
Development
Preschool is the perfect age to start reading slightly more complex books to children. They’ll really start to internalise the messages books send them, and getting preschoolers interested in books will increase their excitement to learn to read. That’s why it’s important to read them a mix of silly fun books and ones that encourage positive thinking and behaviour.
Development
According to the American Psychological Association, one in three teenagers hasn’t read a single book for pleasure in the past year. Reading for pleasure can help with imagination, spelling, grammar, and vocabulary, as well as preventing cognitive decline, depression, and stress. It’s also been shown that those who read books for pleasure are likely to make more money.
Baby Names
We can’t lie – gendered names can be really cute. You may have even had one picked out since you were a kid and can’t imagine anything else. Still, we’d like you to consider the alternative: gender neutral names.
Baby Names
It’s about time to pick a name for your precious new bub, and you can’t wait to look through the endless lists of baby names to find the perfect one. Well… not quite endless. According to naming laws, there are actually over 80 banned baby names in Australia!
Baby Names
It’s never a good feeling when your child ends up with a baby name that three other kids in their class have. You never want to hear “which one?” in reference to your kid, and neither do they. It’ll likely influence their self-confidence as well, which is never something we want to risk messing with.
