Summer Holidays

I love the summer holidays, for me it's school days that cause me a headache. Jack is not a school lover, but he loves the freedom of the summer holidays and if I'm honest I love that freedom too.

As a life coach I know that the summer holidays can cause a great deal of stress for many parents. The thought of having to find alternative care or entertain your kids during the summer.

We often don't have the same family support systems as older generations had. Parenting these days can often be a lonely, stressful and confusing, with so many parenting shows and books all giving you conflicting advice.

Parenting is different for everyone, no two children are the same and no one way of parenting is right for all children. What is important is that you as a parent feel happy and confident.

Through my Parenting Life Coaching Programme I will work with you to put you in control and feel happy and confident in your parenting skills.

You can either go to my website and book my 1 month coaching programme, or you can email me directly to discuss a parenting package to suit you personally.

Wishing you all a fantastic summer



  1. As a parent I do feel a different type of stress during the summer. I am a for Executive Director of a Boys & Girls Club. I can remember trying to assist parents with finding quality child care arrangements for their children. I also remember wondering why schools weren't year round. It would make things so much easier for parents.

  2. The holidays used to be incredibly stressful but have recently become very enjoyable. As Amy gets older she is more manageable and doesn't need constant supervision (she's autistic).

    I do often think (and say to the right person!) that if parents find holidays such a stress having to entertain their children, why did they have them in the first place?

  3. I think the Holidays are a lot more stressful than the summer. Although this summer is a little stressful for me because I am having a new baby. But we will adjust we always do. Have a wonderful week!

  4. Great comments, thanks. Wow Cascia, a new baby what a beautiful summer gift. I'm a summer baby, my birthday is June 21st (the longest day, I've always liked to get the most out of life).
    Jack's busy avoiding his summer homework right now but he'll soon get sorted, the sun is shining and the pool is calling.
    Have a great day.
