4 Tricks to Help Your Kid Get Better at School

Like most people, I want my child to be successful in life. I also want him to get good grades and secure a bright future for himself. While my kid knows how important it is to do well at school, recently I began to think that he doesn’t fully understand the reason why he needs to do so, and why me and my spouse are telling him to try harder. Sometimes, just telling our kids to do something isn’t enough, and that’s why you, I, and every mom out there need to figure out a way to help our children

How to Turn the Basement into a Fun Playroom

Like most people, I used to use my basement as just another storage room. I didn’t pay much attention to its organisation or tidiness – I just used it to put away all the things I thought I might need someday (but deep down knew I probably wouldn’t). However, when my kids started needing more room for playing, I started reconsidering the purpose of our basement. My initial thought was something along the lines of how nice it would be to have a room where they can make a mess that wouldn’t affec

How to Make Moving Easier for You and Your Toddler

Uprooting can come hard on your children, especially youngsters. I know, because I myself am a mom who went through the process, and as much as it may be exciting to move to another city, it’s still one of the major changes that a child can experience. The sense of familiarity and belonging is what smaller children thrive on, and this big change may be frightening to them so you need to find a way to make it as easy on them as possible. On top of that, you need to think about packing, organizing

How to Turn Your House into a Relaxing and Creative Family Place

Ever since my husband and I started dating, we used to move from one rental to another quite frequently. That’s probably the reason why we have never paid much attention to the aesthetics of our temporary homes. Rather, we were focused more on making the – no always so great – spaces functional. However, after years of moving, we’ve finally decided to do something a bit more permanent about our living situation. After some financial planning and – let’s be honest – a lot of saving up, we’ve fin

Tips for Stress-Free Home Moving

For me, probably the most dreaded part about the house-purchase process was moving. House hunting was fun and exciting, finishing the paperwork was hectic, but one thing I really wanted to skip was the move!   Packing all you own into boxes is stressful when there’s only two of you, but if you add kids to the mix, you can really expect chaos (or so I was told). However, I couldn’t live with the fact that moving can’t be made into something interesting, positive and fun for the entire family, so

How to Give Your Family Room a Modern Update

As a mom who wants her home to look stylish and elegant, but also happens to have kids, combining beautiful with practical – and hoping it’ll survive the destructive phase of my little monsters – was definitely a challenge. However, I dare say that I think I did a pretty good job, since most of the things I added are still standing. So, if you’re in a similar situation, here are a couple of tips I’d like to share with you. Now, one of the most famous décor-related problems when you have young k

How to Live Big in A Small Family Home

Growing up, I always dreamt of having a big, beautiful house of my own with enough space for me to relax and enjoy. I used to believe that bigger is better, but now that I’m all grown up and have children of my own, I realize that living in smaller homes has its own perks. For starters, it doesn’t require as much cleaning as it is the case with spacious homes, and with so many kids running around (five to be exact), I can’t imagine finding the time to clean a large house. Another thing I like ab

Tips for Brave Moms: Become Your Own Boss!

Raising a child is a full-time job, which is why it can seem like everything else in your life needs to be put on hold. And for some time, it does. Plus, making everything work with only one salary can be a bit challenging, especially when there are just so many adorable things you just have to buy for your cute little bundle of joy. However, if you are like me, you might start feeling a bit guilty after a while. As tiring as taking care of a newborn is, I’m still at home basking in all this lov

Making Your Small Family House Organized and Lush

When I was younger, I dreamed of having a large, spacious house where I can enjoy myself all day long. But as I grew up, I realized that having large spaces costs extra money and it also means having to clean more, and I didn’t like cleaning...or wasting money. So, when the time came to start my own family, me and my hubby decided to buy a smaller house in order to save money for some more important things, like our children’s college fund and our retirement fund. Although having a bigger home

Childproofing Home Without Compromising on Style

Every mother knows that once the first child comes, there is no way to escape remodeling and even completely changing the home interior. If you’re thinking about a way out of this situation without having to change anything – believe me, there isn’t any. I never expected a child could affect the home environment as much, and I wasn’t well prepared, so I had to improvise on the go, which is not a very smart move. For stylish moms who are in need of advice on how to childproof a home without havin

Remembering childhood-things your kids will remember

Certain situations that happen in our childhood get engraved in our minds and stay with us forever. It’s hard to tell what makes one memory more important than the other, but some experiences seem to have greater chances of defeating oblivion. Emotional experiences, good and bad, are more likely to persist in our memory. Also, we tend to hold on to things that are meaningful to us, and that contribute to the development of our personality. The actions of parents can contribute greatly to the mak

How I Started a Commercial Cleaning Business

Raising a child is a big commitment and it often means putting your job on hold while you get accustomed to your new job – that of being a mom. What makes it even more challenging is having to stick to the budget and relying only on one salary. As a matter of fact, I knew what I was getting into – the only thing is, I didn’t really expect it to be so costly! And how can you say ‘no’ to all the cute (un)necessary things for your newborn? It’s not our fault – it’s only natural for parents to want

Creative Ways to Reduce Your Power Bills

It takes a lot of money to raise a family, especially with kids. Naturally, this means that my husband and I have to plan our expenses very carefully in order to save money on things that that aren’t necessary. However, there was one thing that always managed to tie the knot in my belly. The day we get our power bill. So, at one point, to avoid all the stress and to actually set some money aside for our summer vacation, I decided to make some changes in order to reduce our energy cost. We start

Reinvent a Better Career after a Baby

Becoming a mother was a real life-changing experience! My baby girl has become the center of my world and both my husband and I are doing our best to guide her on her path to become a kind and happy person. Even though having children is the most rewarding thing in the world, they require you to make certain sacrifices in terms of your social life and career. However, we should never use our children as an excuse for not chasing our dreams. That’s why I decided to share several ways how I manage

Sharing the Master Bedroom with a Baby

Becoming a mother was certainly a life-changing experience. I never knew my life would become so different – complicated in certain ways and simple in others. Being a first-time mom, I did plenty of research but I also relied heavily on my intuition, and my husband and I both decided that we would share the master bedroom with our baby girl until she got old enough to sleep on her own. This was a decision that took a lot of work and adjustments on our side, but here’s what I concluded so far: Bo
