School holidays survival guide for parents
School holidays can bring contrasting feelings to everyone.
For the kids, it's a joyous time - endless possibilities, so much time to see friends, sleep in, and find new hobbies to keep busy and recharge before returning to school.
For Mums and Dads, it's a different story.
Between planning your kids' social calendar, juggling children and a busy work schedule, playing taxi to and from daytime activities, or hosting the mid-week sleepover - it's no wonder parents are rejoicing when it's time for school to return!
