Family Cycle with Kidical Berario

For a while now I’ve been keen to get our son cycling with other kids, for no reason other than to boost his cycling confidence and away from the iPad. Last week hubby mentioned that there was a group called Kidical Mass – Berario. An unofficial “Critical Mass” bicycle pace around the suburb of Berario as per the groups Facebook page. Sounded fun. Off we went. I was extremely surprised by the turnout… quite large for a Sunday afternoon. Hubby knows one of the organisers, Nigel Laver. The thinking behind it is similar to the Critical Mass Rides only this time...

Why we should say ‘Sorry’ often to our kids?

The other day as hubby walked out the house he waved to our son and promised him that he would be home early so that they could go out to the local park together. By the time hubby arrived it was dark, cold and really too late to go anywhere. There was a multitude of words from hubby to our son, but none that said:”I’m sorry”. As kids often do, by bedtime, that he had not gone to the park as promised had been forgotten. I have a problem with what happened though. I don’t want their relationship to be...
