In the first few years of their lives, your children’s clothes are going to be pretty much exclusively chosen by you. Whether they’re too young to understand or simply too young to care, your kids are likely to be happy to wear anything that you put them in. However, as they get older, you may well find that your little ones start having more of an interest in the clothes that they wear. This tends to happen once they start school and have the desire for a little bit more independence. For some parents, this can be a tough time since it’s easy to feel like your children are pulling away. However, this actually gives you an opportunity to help your little ones understand the kinds of clothes that they could and should be wearing to make sure that they are comfortable as well as fashionable. To help you and your kids get the best possible idea of the kinds of clothes that they might want to wear, here are some kids clothing brands that you’re both sure to love!

Kenzo Kids

While they might not be the best value clothes around, Kenzo clothing for kids are well worth the price tag! With a combination of incredibly well-made garments with some exciting and unique patterns with a distinctive Japanese style. With unique items in both boy’s and girl’s styles, your little one’s are sure to find something that they really love!

Indikidual

Want some fashion that’s going to fire your little one’s imagination? Then it’s hard to go wrong with Indikidual! With bright colors and creative patterns, your kids are sure to find something that they love in this amazing range of clothes. Not only that but the price isn’t that high, despite the high quality of all of the items that they sell.

The Mini Classy

The Mini Classy definitely has the right name because these are some of the coolest kids clothes around! With their signature harem pants, that celebrity parents like Kourtney Kardashian love to dress their little ones in; there are few clothing brands around with as much street cred as The Mini Classy!

Primary

Of course, you might be more interested in getting back to basics with your little one’s clothing. Primary does just that. There clothing might seem incredibly simple, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not also incredibly stylish. Not only that but these clothes are both hard wearing and incredibly comfortable. Meaning that your kids will look good, feel good, and you’re not going to be stuck having to replace their entire wardrobe every few months because they’ve worn a hole in every piece of clothing that they own.

Of course, you may find that your kids simply don’t care about fashion at all and that’s okay! If they’d rather dress like a superhero or a firefighter than a runway model that’s totally fine! The important thing is that they are comfortable and happy, which is worth more than any pieces of clothing could ever be!

The Best Movies To Watch This Year With Your Kids

While the gritty and bloody Logan film that came out earlier this year isn’t suitable for kids – there are plenty of amazing and fun films that are. From Wonder to Spiderman – there is a lot on offer this year in terms of the cinema and streaming at home, so while you might want to stick to the classics like The Jungle Book – there are still a lot of good films coming out!

The best way to watch films will always be in the armchair of a good cinema – but this isn’t always possible, or suitable.Streaming films at home is always a good idea with apps like Netflix and tools like www.flixusa.com.au which can allow you to access films that are usually split up by regional licenses. No matter if it is at home or at the cinema, you still need to get some popcorn. Here are some movies that both you and your kids will love this year!

It can be tough growing up – especially if you suffer from something that makes you ‘less normal’ in the eyes of society. Physical disabilities and deformities are tackled in the story of Auggie in Wonder. Wonder is a film about being different and why it is ok to be you! Films like this are not just fun, but they send an important message to our kids – that it’s ok to be different and that we should be friends with all sorts of people, no matter what they look or sound like.

Stories are amazing when they are visual and for younger kids, or kids who struggle to hear or listen. The Red Turtle by Studio Ghibli focuses on the story and features sound, but no dialogue as a man gets stranded on an island. It is colorful and cartoony and an amazing film for our children to watch and enjoy.There is also a lot of animation on offer this year. From the zany Boss Baby (which is exactly as described) right through to the third Despicable Me film, and ‘The Emoji Film’. There are at least three options there if you are stuck for ideas, but you shouldn’t be! There is a lot to watch this year. The one to watch could be Pixar’s Coco which focuses on the Mexico Day of the Dead celebration. It is nowhere near as sinister as it sounds though, as a kid explores a centuries-old mystery in relation to the Latin American celebration.

The big kids films come in the form of Marvel, and this could be their best year yet for outright ‘fun’. Marvel films got serious last year, but the fun is coming back. Especially with Spiderman: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok. These could be some silly and enjoyable films that features not only our kid’s favorite film characters, but characters we loved back in the day. Plus, these films are as enjoyable for adults as they are for kids!

Surprising Ways to Reduce Stress as Single Parent

With every one in four American children living with single parents, it’s no surprise that stress can be a major factor in the parent’s life. With so much responsibility and work put on one person, it can be difficult trying to balance priorities. However, all of these issues can be attributed to a single thing: stress. Solo parenting is a demanding task that can quickly pile up and cause stress. Thankfully, there are some surprising ways to wipe that stress away and make your life more enjoyable.

Speak with other single parents

People find comfort in others and single parenting is no exception. Whether it’s an online community or a local community of single parents, make sure you immerse yourself in their groups and make friends. It’s a lot easier to deal with issues when you have people to speak to who are in the same situation, and you can also ask for advice or give your opinion on certain problems that other people have.

Improve your confidence in daily tasks

Another issue that regularly creeps up for a single parent is their confidence. It could be confidence in their appearance, confidence in their daily tasks or simply their ability to raise a child. Whatever you do for your daily chores, make sure that you’re confident in them. Everything from driving your car to cooking dinner should come naturally and you shouldn’t feel like you’re barely scraping by. Take cooking lessons if you want to prepare better meals, consider learning with a defensive driving traffic school online if you’re not confident in your driving and learn how to manage your finances if you are having trouble with budgeting.

Remove the “guilt”

Single parents often feel guilty due to the situation they’re in. They might feel like they aren’t able to provide for their children or they might have trouble balancing their work and personal life, resulting in the occasional neglect for their child. This is absolutely normal and not something that you should be concerned about. Single parents have a rough time trying to balance their lives so it’s easy to slip and think about the long-term goals instead of your small day to day achievements. If you’re feeling guilty about being unable to provide for your child or being forced to separate your child from your partner, then consider joining a support group or accept that you’re living for the future, and not the past.

Never break from your daily routine

Whenever possible, make sure that your routine is set in stone and never break from it. Make sure that you’re eating regular meals at scheduled times, ensure that your children are helping you with chores and build up a consistent routine. This will help you feel a lot less stressed out, and great time management skills will go a long way teach your child the value of an organised life. Not only does this help you maintain a good work and life balance each day, but it also helps you stay on track.
