“eight is enough…

“GREAT FOR FEEDING ANY EXTRA KIDS WHO END UP STAYING”Big really is better it turns out. That doesn’t mean having eight kids, as they did on Eight is Enough (my favourite show of 1979) but it does mean making super-sized meals. The great benefit of a recipe that feeds eight (p38) is that, for little or no extra effort, you end up with double the regular recipe.

Giving your child your full presence and undivided attention is one of the best gifts you can give.2 DEVICE ADVICE Turning our attention away from digital devices and towards our children is the best way to create genuine bonding experiences. Plan a time when the whole family will go ‘offline’ and stick to it. The more you do this as a family, the more your kids will value and appreciate this time.3 BRAIN POWER Think the key to your child’s…

Then we often grab a smoothie afterwards.” Mel“Bushwalking, baking or rockpooling.” Fiona“Washing the dishes after dinner! I know it’s boring but it’s a chance to stand together and talk about our days.” Marg“Having a coffee and a babycino with the youngest while the older kids are at school.” Claire“My kids are spread out in age, but we find UNO is a winner among everyone.” Jo ■…
