Buckle in your tamariki for a time-travelling mystery adventure at Auckland Museum from 19 December to 24 December and from 31 January to 4 February 2022.
In these fun storytelling sessions, explore the ancient world by travelling to some of its most iconic and mysterious monuments. From Stonehenge to the Pyramids, to the Acropolis in Ancient Greece, your young ones learn more about the civilisations who built these wonders of the world and get hands-on (or up-close) with some fascinating artefacts – even treasures of an Egyptian pharaoh.
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.
