Family Friendly Mallorca – A fab place for all the family 9

As the children get older finding a holiday that suits all the family can be hard.  We discovered on our recent Family Friendly Villa Holiday that Mallorca was an amazing place for all the family.  Our boys are 12 and nearly 11 and both love being active, but Mini loves history whereas Maxi not so much.  MadDad is not a sun lover and would prefer to be active rather than sit by a pool.  Me, well as long as I am not cooking I can deal with anything!


Mallorca – Family Friendly Villa Holiday with James Villas 12

Before our trip to Mallorca with James Villas we had never been on a villa holiday.  Now we are converts and I can safely say that it is something we will be repeating in the future. Our recent family friendly villa holiday was a real treat.  It allowed us the comfort of a traditional Mallorcan home with its own pool and left me safe in the knowledge that my sometimes loud boys would not interrupt anyone.

Chores for Kids – Guidelines by Age 8

Fewer and fewer children are participating in household chores. According to a survey reported a few years back in the Daily Mail, as many as 25 percent of kids between 5 and 16 don’t lift a finger around the house. And for a fifth of those who do chip in, help equals tidying their bedroom. Hardly pulling their weight, is it?


Move or Improve? 4

Late last year we struggled with finding a way to make our home work for us with having two tween boys in the house and the fact that I work from home.  We are really lucky and have a conservatory which the boys used a lot when they were younger, but it just wasn’t working for us, so we had to make the decision to move or improve.
