Such as games consoles and tablets. Especially if it feels like your child’s life pretty much revolves around them. Which, I will admit, I do feel my own 5 boys spend way too much time on electronics. They always seem to get their hands on a controller, mobile phone or tablet. I often find even with suggesting that my boys go outside to play, they, 9 times out of 10, still manage to…

17 Adulting Problems No One Ever Prepared You For

While scrolling through my social media I came across this quote about Adulting Problems…. It got me thinking, What Is The One Adulting Problem No One Ever Prepared Me For?

For many others, it’s often about money, and learning how to get debt free, understanding mortgages or grappling with their careers. Also how to look for a potential future partner.
