Guest blog from Jenny, my son has never slept (he is now 14) and he was recently referred to a sleep centre. Over the years, we have tried everything to help getting him to sleep. He has been diagnosed with ADHD, ASD and is very sensory which all contribute to his sleep problems.
Constant bickering between siblings can cause most parents to lose their ‘love of parenting’. It sure isn’t fun when your kids are at war with each other most of the time. When emotions run high, it can be difficult to appreciate that squabbling is part of childhood development but full-blown sibling rivalry is not inevitable.
For any organisation that works within the field of children and teenagers, we believe it is important to show an interest in local activities which are being organised for young people. Naturally, our field of expertise is centred around boosting mental health, however, we always advise young people to increase their physical activities to encourage the feel-good hormones.

Back in the mists of time, when there were lots of dangers waiting to claim those who were unprepared, survival instincts were likely needed on a regular basis.
