On my 34th birthday I called my Mum early in the morning, just after my husband had left for work, to come and get me because I knew if I was left alone too long, was going to harm myself. I was finally at rock bottom but I was sound enough to know that I had to reach out and ask ... Read More »

It Takes A Whole Town

Parenting relates to the care of a child or children. A parent is a mother or father in practice even though not always biologically. Children thrive from having positive role models and carers who parent in a confident, constructive, directional way. Parenting means meeting entirely, the needs of a child or children. By this I don’t mean supplying the best ... Read More »

Do you live a rich life? I often hear and use the term “a rich life” but I haven’t really stopped to ask what it means. So what does it mean?
