There appear to me to be a lot of mythos surrounding the question as to why people bully. I was bullied for around eight years — probably longer. Since then I have worked with or alongside young people for fourteen years, and I have worked with children for a lot longer than that. I remember one time when I had an interview for a youth work post with someone who was aware of my history of being bullied. They asked me in a very matter-of-fact way “So, how will you stop yourself from bullying our young people?” I was quite frankly gobsmacked and astounded, but I answered her question quite clearly “Some people who are bullied do end up bullying, but that is not a hard-and-fast rule.
Do you ever have fights with your baby Mumma so much that it’s almost like every interaction turns into some stupid little dispute? No matter how you approach it, no matter how nice you are…Fight after fight after fight. Since when did you become this person? Since when did the relationship even get to this point? […]
As the non-pregnant partner, pregnancy can be a confusing time. Friends, family, and strangers usually focus on the expecting mother and the non-pregnant partner can feel left out, which can then lead to feelings of guilt for being upset. Knowing that your partner is the one who will be doing the hard and sometimes physically unpleasant […]
Before deciding to have a baby, many couples decide to adopt a dog first. They do this for a reason – dogs can very well prepare you for fatherhood and make you a better parent one day. If you’re wondering how a dog could help, think about it for a while and read on.
Love and Attention
They say follow the mythological rulebook.
The things they eat is down to what you cook.
The dirtier they get depends on where they play,
And for a peaceful night don’t let them sleep in the day.
Keep them clean and definitely, don’t let them get fat,
But if you want my advice, don’t listen to any of […]
He stands there in front of me,
Wearing his dimpled smile.
Filled with happiness,
And a beautiful innocence.
Little does he realize,
He’s taught me patience,
And constantly reminds that time doesn’t matter.
The love for him I can’t explain.
This compassion I feel,
And wanting only to see him happy.
Everyday a little bit more he changes,
Within the lessons he learns.
I helped create him,
Watched him […]
We teamed up this week with Simply BTs (an awesome YouTube Channel) and they answered the question, what do you want to teach your kids about being compassionate? This, along with a ton of other great questions, were answered in this week’s video post by the awesome husband and wife team of Brandon and Bisceglia. If you haven’t […]

A man strides through the wilderness, alone and without peer,
With steady step and focused eye and iron in his tread.
He pays no mind to obstacles that vie to keep him here.
Behind are home and family; his mission lies ahead.
With sudden, violent speed, there springs a bandit from the brush…
Beats the man, and strips him, and forsakes […]
Treat others as you want to be treated was the first lesson taught to me by my father and it’s what I’m trying to teach my kids. It does however contradict the other lesson of respect is earned and not just given ‘only show respect to people who show you respect’.

Let compassion be your compass,
even as it was the passion of the Christ.
When you put yourself in someone else’s shoes,
you will live not one life,
as we become reincarnated in ourselves,
not just with defining moments,
but redefining ones.
For it’s when we lose ourselves in the service of others
that we often find ourselves,
and smile at the discovery.
We are not a family that tends to stay home much when mum and I are off work. We do try to take a couple of days to kick back and relax, but mainly, our vacations now consist of us doing things with the children. The last time we had a week off […]
