I sincerely hope you all have a peaceful break from the norm, full of festive cheer and magic for the little ones.
It’s a great time to reflect on how lucky we are to have each other, from our amazing families and close friends to our everyday acquaintances.

Sometimes it’s easy to feel like you haven’t been praying enough to the parenting gods. You work hard, you try your best to inspire and guide your kids towards a bright future that they can control, but at time it can feel like nothing is going right.
Do you want to make an impact with your kids education? Do you want to make learning easier and help them develop a more confident approach in school? Do you want to help develop good attention and listening skills? There’s an answer and it’s not easy, but it’s time to take the bull by the horns.

I saw this on the front page of a rubbish newspaper in the middle of last month and thought I’d share it with you all.
The quoted Parenting Experts are saying that under 5 year olds have too much screen time and that 5 and above year olds have even more.
Needless to say, this is complete nonsense in our house. We would have to measure it by the week to get a decent data set even close to comparable to the number of hours stated in the news article.
As for playing online games, they aren’t even touched – or even known about for that matter.
It does make me wonder what kind of glue they are using to stick a child to a screen for 4 hours a day though!

You know the score. It’s time to take the little one to the changing room, or its going to result in an explosive situation. You look down at your ‘mini me’ and you can see they are getting uncomfortable. The thing is you’re out in the middle of town, so you head to the nearest shop/cafe/place you can think of to get baby sorted; except you can’t. Why? No male baby changing facility.
It’s more common than you might think. When you find yourself in this situation you really feel astonished that it’s actually happening. Phrases like “in this day and age?” and “remind me what year is this?!” suddenly spring to mind.

Cast your mind back to when you were little. After bonfire night, there is only one more event on your mind. A proper Chrimbo!
You’d have trouble sleeping, you’d have trouble concentrating. Every day would beg the question ‘I wonder what I will be getting for Christmas?’. The whole family is getting excited and the hysteria spreads like wild fire.
You’ve made your list and triple checked the Argos catalogue for anything you might have missed. Any spare moment you get, you find yourself flicking back to those folded pages and staring at the toys you’ve selected. Would Father Christmas bring them?

We all need a bit of downtime and it’s good to get a healthy balance between working, family time and ‘you time’. As a father, I have found it easier to watch Video On Demand these days rather than catch live television. I do record content on my TiVo but find it hard to watch it, and find the 2TB HD running at about 90% all the time!
I’m sure that there are plenty of people in the same boat as me here, ranging from Stay at home Dads/Mums to Professionals that slog it out; so without further a do here’s my Daddycated approved list of VOD that has kept me entertained from summer 2016 until now.
The content in this article is not for kids! (mostly).
