My name is Ezekiel Tweneboah and Today I will be talking to you about the many forms of Bullying, How its found and happens, and some stories and some Videos
Includes hitting, kicking, shoving, spitting, beating up, stealing or damaging property. While physical bullying causes harm to a child’s body or property, the below forms of bullying cause psychological harm. Such offensive, degrading and rejecting behaviours undermine and destabilize victimized children’s sense of themselves, of their place in the school, and of their place in the world.
Includes name-calling, mocking, hurtful teasing, insults, slurs, humiliating or threatening someone, racist comments, or sexual harassment.
Includes rolling your eyes or turning away from someone, excl…

Take your time
There’s a lot to think about before you introduce a new pet into your family – especially if you have very young children.
Owning a pet comes with a huge amount of responsibility for both parents and children as many pets can live for at least 10 years; if you decide to get a tortoise, they can live for more than 50 years!
Before you make a commitment to owning any kind of pet, it’s worth taking some time to think through all the options to work out what kind of pet will be right for your family.
What kind of pet would be suitable?
Many families with young children often choose a puppy believing they are safer, easier to train, more adaptable and of course, so cute! However, because puppies are fragile, require much more time and…Read more >
Using the internet safely
The internet is a fantastic source of fun and learning, but it’s worth following some simple rules to help your children stay safe online.
- Always sit with young children when they use the internet.
- There are plenty of safe places for children to play and learn on the web. Get to know them and save them as shortcuts in your favourites folder.
- You can adjust browser settings and filters to protect children from unsuitable sites.
- If you have older children who want to explore on their own, it is a good idea to keep the computer or tablet in a family room or a place you share.
- Talk to your child about how to stay safe and let them know they can come to you if they find themselves in any sort of trouble.

Enjoying being read to, talking about books, reading stories and becoming familiar with them creates enthusiasm and interest that is likely to stay with children. It will then make them want to recreate the pleasure and fun for themselves.
Books are not just for bedtime
Bedtime is sometimes seen as the best time to read stories, but adults and children can both be tired then. There is a whole range of other opportunities to read with children; for example, at the doctor’s or on a journey. Telling stories is also important, whether it is tales handed down through families, made-up stories featuring the child or retellings with familiar characters and plots. Talking about the pictures in a book helps children to understand the meaning, while t…Read more >
Very often, the parent is referred to as ‘the child’s first teacher’ as this is the adult with whom a child spends a large amount of his/her waking hours. Parents and family model daily life and routines for children, both consciously and unconsciously. When a child is ready to enter a group-learning environment, everyday tasks of parenting can provide children with the tools and skills needed to thrive in that setting.
Parents support children in their first experiences with language, numbers, social interactions and negotiating problems, which are the basis for learning in a group setting. When children prepare to join a nursery or pre-school, parents have an opportunity to support that transition by getting involved in the learning envir…Read more >

Watching TV with your baby
It’s natural to worry about how much time your young child spends in front of a screen. Some argue that exposing young children to tablets, TV or computers can only be bad. The experience of many parents, however is that educational programmes and apps can help with early years learning and prove useful in the build up to school.
Although some experts recommend limiting screen time or even avoiding it altogether for very young children, Professor Lydia Plowman from the University of Edinburgh believes detailed evidence that screen time is bad for children is lacking.
Her extensive research into young children and technology found when used in moderation, technology can be a valuable tool to support children’s develo…Read more >
Night-time training is not automatic
If you are concerned that your day-trained little one is still in nappies at night, don't worry. Just because a child is dry during the day, it doesn’t mean they should be automatically dry at night. Night-time toilet training is quite different to day-time training, and many children take quite some time to be dry at night – sometimes up to two years for deep sleepers.
On average, the majority of little ones are around 3.5 or 4 years of age before they are reliably dry at night. However, some children do still need the safety of night-time pants or protective covers at the age of 5 or 6 - mainly down to being very deep sleepers. Of course, some children with medical conditions may go beyond this age.

Tablets are becoming increasingly popular and many households own at least one. But how do you know when and how to start a child off using tablets?
We have worked with the Technology and Play research project to create 10 tips for you to feel more confident when introducing your little one to apps on tablets and phones. The project has also developed [a useful guide](http://www.techandplay.org/TAP_Parents Hand Out.pdf) to help parents choose and use apps with their pre-schoolers.
You can read their [Guide for Parents here](http://www.techandplay.org/TAP_Parents Hand Out.pdf).
