This month we’ve got students settling into university, lots of teen and tween rites of passage and even an early start on the Christmas shopping. This is what our teens and tweens have been up to lately… A new blogger to the round-up is 3 Princesses and 1 Dude. She’s written this entertaining post on […]

Looking around at what the dad bloggers have been writing, it’s quite clear most have been enjoying the summer. There are loads of posts about holidays and days out. This one from Tim at Slouching Towards Thatcham caught my eye. It’s his top tips for visiting LegoLand Windsor and, having been last summer with my […]
Wow, what an amazing comeback for the BritMums Reviews round-up! Thank you to everyone who submitted a review to share. Between checking out your reviews and staying super-busy with reviews of all sorts over on Kiddy Reviews, I feel I may have neglected my husband somewhat this month! Anyone reviewing anything to help keep on top […]
People say parents often have eyes at the back of their heads. We think it’s better than that: Parents have tricks up their sleeves, performing everyday “magic” for their families. At our #MumsMagicTricks Twitter party, parents shared their top parenting tricks. The party was sponsored by NatWest and their banking app, which highlights the multitasking […]
Children have amazing imaginations. So how as parents do we encourage them to use it to become more independent and creative? With summer holidays nearly here, how do we encourage them in creative play rather than tablet computer hypnosis? We’re thrilled to announce our #PlaytheHero Hangout on Tuesday 8 July at 12:00 with psychologist, author […]
The other day a mum asked me if I was a single parent. Having seen me at the school gates twice a day, this was the conclusion she’d apparently come to. I couldn’t help feeling the question was a bit on the blunt side, especially as I wear a wedding ring which, I would argue, […]
We’re back! Did you miss us? The round-up had to take a month off for January after I moved house (twice) and had no proper internet for weeks. But I’m back in the real world and ready to share with you some posts from our finest bloggers on the mysterious world of teens and tweens. […]
I know, I know, it’s January! Christmas was wonderful yet challenging and exhausting, we’re all paying for it all in more ways than one. It’s tricky to get our children outside because it just won’t stop raining, the school runs are still dark and I for one haven’t got the energy to build an ark […]
There’s a question I’m often asked by mums when they discover I’m the main carer for our two daughters. The words vary slightly, but it goes something like this; “Is it hard looking after two children compared to having a full time job?” I’ve been asked this question many times and yet I still […]
It’s December, and that means one thing. It’s the time of year a jolly bearded man gives out gifts. And so here I am with a massive sack, full of presents for you this month. All of them gift-wrapped with a lovely little tag on them. I’ve not kept the receipts, so there shan’t be […]
Three meaty topics for you this month: Transitioning through life, insensitive comments and ‘awareness’. Here’s what our round-up bloggers think. How about you? Our vests have been dug out and the Winter boots have had a few outings. Our children have probably had their flu jabs and the more organised amongst you will already have […]
Welcome back to the Special Needs Round-up for our new collection of must-read posts and news of what’s been happening over the summer break. I hope you all survived the school holidays with your sanity in tact and that your children found activities on offer that were suitable for their needs. The long break can […]
Welcome to the second Britmums teen and tween round-up. Did you know that teens and tweens are just people? I know, hard to believe sometimes when you’re living with them. They’re just stuck between childhood and adulthood. One minute they’re pulling away and being all indpendent (and perhaps just a little bit grumpy), the next […]
BritDads are speaking up and their messages are coming through loud and clear, JallieDaddy writes at Whisky for Aftershave about his parenting of twins, work, home and headphones and shares with BritMums his views on the Jimmy Savile saga and how we can start to make changes in our own lives so this never […]
Susanna Scott, co-founder of Brit Mums is a proud judge of Dream a Big Dream which is a new national writing competition for children aged 9 to 14 with a mission to encourage them to think big about their hopes and dreams. Organised by Kip McGrath Education Centres, it’s a great opportunity to invite your […]
Well hello there! I’m thrilled to be writing the first BritMums literary round-up and have thoroughly enjoyed reading all the literary posts I could find from our lovely BritMums members. I started writing as an outlet when I was 14 years old, when quite accidentally my lovesick diary entry turned into a teenage angst […]
At the BritMums #PGRaisingOlympians Twitter party, we asked parents how they celebrate children’s achievements, big and small. The party was sponsored by P&G, which has created a host of videos about athletes and their parents that say Thank You, Mum for all they do to help children achieve their dreams. Join the #PGRaisingOlympians Linky Challenge […]
Well it is that time of the month again, yes that’s right the search for dad’s who are happily blogging away out there on the interweb. When the round-up baton was passed in my direction last month, I have to admit that there were concerns in my mind as to whether it was possible to […]
