With the school summer holidays now upon us parents across the land are focused entirely on how to keep their little darlings happily amused for 6 long weeks. At this early stage in proceedings, we're all planning den building and lovely picnics - but you know that by week two the temptation to top up their Fortnight account with the entire month's shopping budget will be starting to take over your common sense.
We're here to help you stay strong! You know that keeping them active is the absolute best choice for them, and that the electronics path to amusement isn't where you want to be. This handy run down on why it is important to stand your ground here, might just be the reminder you need when things get tough.
