Cars might look simple on the outside: they have four wheels, some doors, a roof, etc.; pretty basic. However, as I hope you would also know, they have hundreds of tiny little mechanisms and wires and other techy stuff that most people ignore and hope won’t make them fail their MOT or other safety test. There are many, many, many, many people out there who don’t have the foggiest idea about basic car maintenance and this is so worrying.

When it comes to style every one of us is a unique individual, bringing our own particular preferences and creativity to any given situation. When we become parents, we take our personal style into the adventure of parenthood. Although we are unique individuals, we more or less tend to fall somewhere along the continuum of four broad categories of parenting styles. Some of these styles are more beneficial to our children than others, so it is important to be aware of what we are doing and how our family is being affected. It often happens that a mother and father will have two differing styles, which can become confusing for the child especially if there is conflict between the parents. Read more
