Mum Life


Follow Your Intuition

There is no right or wrong way of being a mum, as long as you are following your maternal intuition.

We all have different life experience and challenges to deal with. No mother is the same as the next, and it is so important that we don’t judge and instead stand by one another, be supportive and share experiences and philosophies or techniques that have worked.

I am far from a perfect mum. I’m always letting myself down and not always the mum I want to be. But it is the one area of my life I’m always consciously trying to improve.

Every Child Is Different

Having been mum all my adult life, I have tried and tested all sorts.

Every child is different though, so what works for one, won’t work for another. Though there are always attitudes that help all concerned sail through the hardest of times.

I will share my thoughts and idea’s, you don’t have to do as I do, but they are there to be read in case they can help someone.

Would be great if you commented on my posts, so there can be a discussion to help form a wide perspective, and I am always open to learn something new too.
