• Learning to embrace tough life experiences

    Over the Christmas break we were on holidays and were staying with family. My little girl unfortunately likes to rise at 5pm, which is a little too early for my liking. Fortunately it is only 7 mornings a week though… Anyway, so I could keep the rest of the family asleep, I was taking her to a nearby café each morning so I could grab a coffee and let her make all of the noise she does,...

  • How to raise successful, Godly children

    As a parent of four children, I have to tell you that I am particularly keen to see them all do their best in life. I believe they only get one shot, I tell them to dream big, and I want them to reach for whatever it is they are dreaming for. I’m happy to let their fate rest in God’s hands. And luckily, because as Dale Partridge notes: The chances of your child becoming famous...

  • Why you can’t let technology slip away from you

    I have a 17 month old, and by 5 am, she is wide awake. Literally, for 17 months, except for when I have been away, I have been wide awake at 5 am, taking her downstairs so her mother can get some much-needed rest after still being up with her during the night.
