Raising children


Once your children pass the toddler stage and start to become little people, things may seem to calm down a bit! There are of course different challenges that we will face with our growing children! 

Tantrums will be well and truly on their way out, however now a new chapter will be starting. Language will be far more developed however developmental leaps will still be happening, along side an increase in hormones, changing bodies, new friendships forming, starting school etc.

Although having a child around can be demanding, we have written some posts which will help you navigate the rollercoaster your child is embarking on. From building resilience, learning the best ways to communicate with your children, demands of starting school, forming new friendships and much much more – we’ve got you covered…

At Water Filled Wellies we take a positive parenting approach and look at each phase of childhood as a wonderful adventure. We have posts on a range of topics which will include tips and tricks, routines and guidance on how to be the best parent you can be to your growing child.​
