    Is Your Child a Smartphone Addict?

I will give a glimpse of what goes on in the mind of a video gamer and why it’s challenging to pull them away from the game or indeed, pulling themselves away. I will also give tips on what can potentially be done.

  • Public Speaking? Nah… Just Tell a Story!

    Public Speaking? Nah… Just Tell a Story!

    I dedicate this article to my favourite age group – the youth of today. Much has been said and written about this topic and yet it remains an enigma to most of us when it really shouldn’t be.

These kids were going to present their project to a group of judges and the best idea was to win an award to fund their idea. I first asked them to tell me about their project.

Then I asked them to present their idea to me as they would to the judges.

    Are You Burning Bridges With Your Child?

    “My 13-year-old daughter is just so unenthusiastic and passive for just about everything. I have to constantly remind her of small things like putting her shoes away to packing her bags. She is intelligent, but she needs to be reminded to do her homework and prepare for her assessments. When she does it, she does it well…but my pain is the reminders. I feel like a broken record player…you know one that keeps playing the same track again and again!! Arghhh!!! Other children her age are so active and self-motivated”, ranted my client. Fatigue and frustration were apparent in her voice, face and body language.This is a story of not just one parent but of so many of us.
