Hygiene for toddlers
Though the odd sniffle is said to be good for a child's immune system, at this time of year it often seems like their noses never stop running. In an early childhood environment, where children come into contact with many other children – sharing toys, furniture and bathrooms – an increased risk of coughs and colds is inevitable. And one thing that toddlers are good it is getting dirty. Whether it's eating with filthy hands or wiping their nose on their sleeve, this is the perfect time to start teaching children about healthy hygiene routines.
Money struggles
it may be all in your head
By Vince Scully

As the parent of a young child, you probably don't need me to tell you that balancing the family finances can be a bit of a juggling act. Early childhood is often a particularly challenging time for couples. Just as your income falls, no longer having two full time incomes, your expenses skyrocket.

But what you may not know is that much of how you react to this situation and how you deal with money matters in general is deeply ingrained in your psyche. Just as we have a set of unique core values that defines us, we also have a set of intrinsic attitudes when it comes to money.
