Word Up!

When my kids were in nursery aged 2, we were sent home with a reading book. For them to read. My husband and I thought it was ridiculous and pushy and didn’t bother.

Don’t get me wrong, I was huge into reading to them – from the age of 6 months. And they always loved it. It was the only time – apart from sleeping, when they were quiet and sat still. But they were 2. 2! Why on earth did we need to start pushing them to read by themselves at that age???

Boy did I live to regret that. Maybe it was just me, but I really had no idea quite how important it was for my kids to get reading by themselves – and the sooner, the better. Their whole world – both educational and imaginative – opens up to them once they can read.

A couple of weeks ago – we were invited to a chi-chi little number at the beautiful Ralph Lauren store in Bond Street hosted by Tamara Beckwith Veroni which was all about promoting reading for kids. You see Ralph Lauren has launched a Childrens Literacy Program to promote literacy in association with the charity Book Trust. Read More…

Kids Ergo

One of my pet hates is rocking back and forward on a chair…. OMG it literally drives me crazy. I turn into an evil monster almost wishing the chair will tip over already to teach them a lesson. So imagine my dilemma when it turns out that “active sitting” (or rocking as we know it) can actually increase concentration. Mmmm!

Introducing ErgoErgo a revolutionary seating concept combining the benefits of active sitting with a bold contemporary design. It encourages children to perform controlled ‘micro-movements’ whilst they are sitting, which improves blood and oxygen flow to the brain – increasing their concentration by an average of 17%. Now that’s great news….I’m thinking of better homework, more focused eating, god forbid maybe a bit more listening even?  Read More…
