Drop the wrapping paper and don your Santa hat for the festive night you’ve been waiting for!
Unleash your fa-la-la’s with our charming host Jackie Clarke and jump on stage to sing a carol or two in a karaoke filled Christmas sing-along accompanied by acclaimed musician Robin Kelly on keys!
Belt it out like the Queen of Christmas Mariah Carey with ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’, slow it down with George Michael’s ‘Last Christmas’ or put yourself in the holiday mood with Bublé’s ‘It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas’.
Whatever your jam, wander down to Aotea Square this December and strut your stuff with Christmas Karaoke in the Square.
Sometimes our children can sound like a broken record wanting and, needing everything in sight! It is times like this when can find ourselves going a bit crazy wanting to run from all the demands. One major tip to help avoid this, is teaching your child the difference between ‘want and need’. By explaining to your child there is a big difference between “I need a drink” or “I want a toy”, you will help your child understand when it’s the right time to ask for something and, hopefully will diminish the list of requirements for you!
Is your kid nose-picker?
Deal with any allergies and dehydration issues first as these can make picking seem necessary. Teach your child to use a handkerchief or tissue, as the main problem is the spreading of germs from fingers straight to the nasal cavity.
My child can’t stop saying rude words! What do I do?
As parents we all will experience our children saying rude words, whether it is as small as be saying ‘poo’, or screaming a swear word in the middle of a supermarket. No matter the circumstance, it is our job as parents to teach the child what is acceptable language to use. When your child uses these inappropriate words you can…
1. Firmly explain this is a bad word and “we don’t use that word in this house”.
2. Set a rule that if this word is used again, there will be a punishment.
3. Ask if they understand this discussion you two have just had.
