How to Plan a Best Children's Birthday Party on a Budget

Plan a Best Children's Birthday Party on a Budget Every child looks forward to their birthday as it’s one of the few days of the year when all of the attention will be on them, and the presents and party food are pretty good too! While every parent wants to give their child everything they want on their birthday, the reality is it can hit the family budget hard, so here are a couple of tips to help you plan a fantastic birthday for your child without breaking the bank. Fun doesn’t have to be expensive: Having a birthday party at the local park instead of taking a group to an activity centre is a low cost fun option.

10 Great Tips To Encourage Your Child To Read

Today we are here with some important tips to encourage your child to read. These 10 tips are really effective and easy to apply. So let's check them now.  10 Great Tips To Encourage Your Child To Read:  1. Find books that interest your child.  Take your child along to the library or bookstore and let him pick his books. If he prefers sci-fi over national geographic, so be it. Use your judgement in censoring books, but don't forbid an entire category of books. 2. Talk about the book Casually ask what the book is about at the dinner table. Getting your child to talk about what he reads stimulates his memory and enhances his narrative skills. Showing your interest in his reading will make the activity seem important and worthwhile to your child. 3. Comic books aren't necessarily evil Research has shown that comics are a great way to encourage reading and enhancing your child's vocabulary. Comics may be simplified reading, but reading doesn't always have to be intense.
