About Sarah

Sarah usually lives in Newcastle with her husband and two young children, after making the change from the Big Smoke in 2007. In 2012 she moved to Canada with her family for a bout of expat living. She has a Communications Degree from Macquarie University and after starting her career in the magazine industry, spent several years living and working as a corporate communications consultant in the finance sector in the UK - coming back with a lot of travel tales and a South African fiance!
 
Sarah used to write a monthly parenting column for Sunny Days, a parenting magazine distributed throughout the Hunter and Central Coast.  She has also spent a lot of time around babies and children as a nanny throughout her university years, and more recently as a mum to her own two. She finds it completely fascinating the way little people think and express themselves (well, most of the time - unless they choose to 'express themselves' in the middle of the supermarket checkout!). Always on the lookout for ways to strengthen her family's emotional intelligence.

Young Children Lying - Doesn't Bother Me Much

09/05/2011 - 18:21

There has been a great deal of fibbing going on in our house recently. Telling of porky pies. Pulling the wool. Stretching the story to fit the circumstance. Blatant bald-faced untruths. Read full post
