Join the World’s First Children’s Assembly

Join the World’s First Children’s Assembly is a paid collaberative post. Every September members of the United Nations gather at the UN’s annual General Assembly in New York, where politicians meet to debate and decide on key issues that will influence world policies and thinking for decades to come. But what about the children who will have to live with the consequences of the decisions made by adult politicians?

6 Tips for Your Kid’s Bedtime Routine 2

Kids need a consistent bedtime routine whether they are newborns or teenagers. Bedtime routines consist of all of the things that you and your kid do to get them ready for bed. Putting on pyjamas, brushing teeth and turning down the lights are a few of the most common things that people do. You can also add a few fun rituals to the routine such as singing a special song or reading a story that helps your child relax. Setting up a routine takes a little work, but the effort is worth it when you check in on your kid and see them fast asleep within minutes.

Spreading the cost of Christmas is a paid collaboration. Christmas is expensive. Even with all the will in the world, we can not always be prepared for the cost associated.

A plea to Instagram 4

Yesterday my Instagram account was hacked.  I could have sworn I had two-factor authentication activated, I do for all my other social media accounts, but didn’t.  So I reached out to Instagram via their official channels to ask them to look in to it and try and get my account back and this is a story of how they have decided that they are unable to confirm my identity and denied me access to the account favouring the hacker.
