How Parents Can Meet the Social and Emotional Needs of Their Baby

By Lynn Jenkins - 28th November 2013

Apart from having necessary physical needs to be met, human babies have social and emotional needs, that when fulfilled, teach them how to interact with people, connect, form trusting relationships with others and understand their own emotions. This video offers simple guidance for parents on how to lay the foundation for social and emotional learning.

Pregnancy Rollercoaster - Will Everything be Okay?

By Lynn Jenkins - 8th October 2012

My youngest child recently celebrated his first birthday. Being the third child he has always had to fit in with the schedule of the other two as well as us, so naturally his first birthday was shared with the big soccer presentation day. It was a very busy day, kick-started with balloons and present opening ...as I always do on my kids' birthdays reflected on his birth – the order of events, how I felt when he was born, etc. But I also found myself revisiting feelings of being very thankful that he was here with us, because my pregnancy with him hit some bumps along the way. At the beginning of it, I honestly thought he was gone.

I Love Mothering, and Other Things - My Rat Brain

By Lynn Jenkins - 25th June 2012

I love the brain. I love reading and learning about how it operates. A lot of you might be thinking now, ‘OMG - what a nerd?!?’ But I can’t help it – it fascinates me... Of particular interest to my nerdy obsession is the parenting brain – the brain structures and chemicals that are involved in parenting ... I recently came across an article that looked at the motivation of mothers to mother, as they and their kids grew older. It was conducted on our research mammal friends – rats – but it really got me thinking about the parallels with humans.

Parenthood Can be Very Funny

By Lynn Jenkins - 15th May 2012

Parenthood can be very funny. These little people we are helping to become big people can come out with some funny things, especially when they are learning to talk. My personal favourites from my kids are: “where are my gubbles (GOGGLES)?” “look at that man’s mooshraka (MOUSTACHE)" “I love wearing chiuauas (TIARAS) on my head" Then there’s the toilet humour.

I Stopped and Really saw My Daughter - Moments of Mindfulness

By Lynn Jenkins - 24th April 2012

There are some moments with my kids that are so precious I just want the moment to be permanently recorded forever and stored somewhere safe. I want this so I can re-live the moment and tap into the wonderful feelings that swam over me at the time. For five minutes today I had one of these moments. I was simply sitting on the floor brushing my five year old daughter’s hair while we both listened to Alvin and the Chipmunks soundtrack (of all things!). And I haven’t felt so peaceful and content in a very long time.

Are You a Parent Juggling Too Many Tasks? Try This.

By Lynn Jenkins - 4th April 2012

A few weeks ago I found myself a bit more disorganised than usual. Among a multitude of jobs I had to do was buying green things for my eight and five year olds to wear to school for St Patrick’s Day celebrations. I found myself standing in a shop asking myself what would be more inappropriate - sending them to school wearing plastic green glasses that look like jugs of beer, or a badge that says ‘Kiss me. I’m Irish’?
