Re: Sleep trainer for an 8 year old

We’ve had a mountain of sleep problems with my eldest- also (nearly) 8. I think by the time you get to 7/8 it’s not really the domain of a sleep trainer. Our daughter benefited from going to see a play therapist who was able to work through some of her anxieties with her. Ultimately one needs to get...

Re: Risk of transmission of virus from dogs chewing balls of other households in public spaces. Please share

The problem is that most dogs need to run - taking them for a walk on a lead is not sufficient or fair for them. I think the council should expand the number of dog free zones to give families more space to spread out without worrying about dogs, but likewise there do need to be spaces where dogs ca...

Childrens DVDs

Hello- we are in the middle of a pre xmas clear out and have about 50 children’s dvds to give away. It’s basically every Disney film plus some other staples (Harry Potter films, xmas films, etc). Does anyone know of a charity shop or library or hospital that might want them? Or failing that, does an...

Re: Screen time and young children

I might make myself a bit unpopular and post a contrarian point of view. My children do have iPads- all hand me downs from wider family/our old ones. We keep the time they can go on them very controlled but we do let them have them half an hour a day (more often than not in lieu of television). With...

Wanted- Super Nintendo classic mini console

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone might be selling a Super Nintendo classic mini console (the relatively new one that looks like a small version of the old school one, and comes preloaded with like 20 games). I think Nintendo only made them for a limited time period them so they are tricky to g...

Re: 3yrs old Autism - help/advice

Thank you @Dudley- I have reached out to her. @2009KAT- yes I found it strange too but it was the GP who told us this and, on the autism.co.uk website it does say: “Private diagnosis is an option, if you can pay for one, and can reduce the waiting time“. It perhaps sets you down a different pathway ...

Re: 3yrs old Autism - help/advice

Hello, I was hoping I could jump into this boat and ask a related question. We are in a similar situation and have been told to try and get a private diagnosis and then obtain an NHS diagnosis as the NHS pathway can be accelerated with a previous private diagnosis. Has anyone used a good private dia...

Cello teacher

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help recommend a cello teacher for my daughter? Our usual teacher will be unavailable for the next few months and so I’m looking for some temporary cover as I’m woefully bad at all things musical! Ideally I’m looking for someone who could do a half hour lesson ...

Re: Private maternity recommendations

We’ve gone with the Kensington wing at Chelsea and Westminster in the past and have been happy with it. Not as fancy as the Portland (think cups of tea and biscuits rather than champagne) but I found it reassuring to be in a large well equipped hospital just in case!

Re: Views on Nightingale Montessori 1 on Ramsden Road?

I echo the above sentiments. Two of mine went there and both were very happy -despite being very different personalities. The staff are great, the garden is great and they do loads of different activities. I always look at it fondly whenever I walk past....

Re: Australian labradoodle. On the common

Of course the Australian labradoodle is a kind of dog- an awesome one too. Have a look at the websites below for an idea of reputable breeders. There is also a Facebook page called I love my Australian Labradoodle (UK). They are brilliant dogs and very family friendly. http://www.doodledoos.co.uk/Re...
