111 Ugly Baby Names to avoid
DaddiLife
by Jonathan Davies
6d ago
Choosing a baby name is hard. There are so many questions to ask yourselves. Do we pick something classic? Do we pick a unique baby name? Will people be able to pronounce it properly? Will it go out of fashion soon? Do we pick a gender neutral baby name? Will our child actually like the name when they’re older?  Assigning a name to another human for (usually) the rest of their lives is a huge responsibility. And yet, we live in a society where social media is ingrained in our daily lives - and how many of us can say they haven’t judged the name of a baby we’ve seen on our socials? I know ..read more

While the role of a father has changed dramatically over the past decade, it is still a challenge that is as tough as it is rewarding.

The 10 best growth mindset books for kids
DaddiLife
by Jonathan Davies
1M ago
The term ‘growth mindset’ is by no means a new one, but certainly feels like it’s grown (no pun intended!) in popularity in recent years, especially among influential business leaders and entrepreneurs. Yet its roots lie with younger people, in education.  Put simply, a ‘growth mindset’ is the belief that you can get smarter, and therefore view “failure” as opportunities for further learning and development of skills.  This upturn in popularity among the entrepreneurial community has sparked an explosion of books, from the practical ‘how to’ guides to more philosophical and theoreti ..read more

Where do Children get their intelligence from?
DaddiLife
by Robin Lewis
4M ago
One of life’s enduring questions is the ongoing battle of nature vs nurture. Where are we most susceptible and sponge-like: our genes or our environment? A study that re-emerged again recently has attempted to provide an answer to that with regard to intelligence and I’m afraid it’s not good news for you, Dad.   Whose brains are they anyway? To cut a long-story short, the genes deemed to be responsible for intelligence are passed down through the X chromosome – in other words it’s most likely to be Mum (As she has two). How did they work it out? Researchers interviewed kids every year fro ..read more

At seven, most children are reading-fiends, devouring books with a thirst for knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Their imaginations are firing like crazy and they are looking for as much food to feed into that as possible. Their reading skills will begin to be tested at school and they will likely bring a wide variety of books home to help with this. This is the stage where their developmental reading skills take a step up - and it goes without saying that this is a key skill that will put them in a good place for the rest of their life. It’s very important to aid them in t ..read more
