Wearable trackers like the Fitbit, Garmin and Moove are gaining significant market-share with children. But are activity trackers good for our children?

When you feel like you have people around you who are your people, it feels wonderful. But more than that, it makes you more resilient.

Have you heard of Panda parenting? It’s kind of different to Tiger Parenting. It’s a bit more like Lawnmower or Snow Plough parenting.

It’s an objective fact: one of our children is always going to better than another child at any given activity. One child might be academically sharper.

Research is clear. Dad matters. The more a dad is present and involved in his children’s lives in a positive way, the better the outcomes for everyone. 

A recent study, which analysed the sexting behaviours of over 10,300 teens, found that approximately one in six teens are sending nudes.

Resilience is about being able to adapt positively to difficult times, setbacks and other significant challenges, and avoid maladaptive outcomes.

The teen years are a time of doing things for themselves and by themselves, figuring themselves out, and experiencing life like never before.

In recent weeks, to surprisingly little fanfare, the Morrison Federal Government has announced a new Children’s Mental Health Strategy.

We all want our kids to feel good. Ice cream. Beach days. Playdates. These are all great for bringing joy. But typically, these good feelings don’t last.
