Parents School Holiday Survival Competition
Win a copy of the Feeding Kids eBook
All you have to do is share your funniest or most serious & successful TIP with us – Here’s some of mine to get you going:
1. The moment the kids get distracted, start walking slowly and carefully in the opposite direction, gradually build up your momentum, and with a quick backward glance check the coast is still clear and then – Make a run for it!! As fast as you can! As far as you can!
2. Book yourself into a 14 day silent meditation retreat. I don’t think they (being the abovementioned) will want to come.
3. Or as the sun begins to set – secretly turn back all the clocks 1 hour so you can get the kids to bed earlier – just remember to turn them forward again or you’ll be up at dawn 🙁
