Your child knocks over a glass of milk in the preschool years. Your response to this little accident will determine how he/she views their mistakes moving forward.

A Little Chaos : a review by Daniel Janks

A Little Chaos
By Daniel Janks

This is a great film. It’s about love, and feminism, and French-ness and the ridiculousness of royalty. It’s about loss and learning to live again. It’s about taking chances and finding salvation in the chaos that lurks just beyond the borders of the illusion of order we impose on the world.

Mad Max Fury: a review by Daniel Janks

Mad Max Fury
Reviewed by Daniel Janks

Look, it’s weird, and gory, and just not for kids. Hell, it’s Mad Max.

Bottom Line

Mad Max Rockatansky is back and he’s seems, finally, to actually have gone mad. According to my wife this is an inexplicable movie where a bunch of bad guy freaks drive around the desert in weird cars chasing a buch of good guy freaks in more weird cars (or in this case a truck). My response was: “I know, right? Isn’t it awesome?”

Help your child learn problem-solving skills

By Lientjie Young

The development of mathematical thinking is one of the most important reasons why kids do Maths at school. It is not simply about the following the steps, but also about developing problem-solving skills. Unfortunately, it is not easy to develop these skills, and it is particularly challenging for teachers in today’s crowded classrooms where individual attention is not always possible.

By Daniel Janks

Yes I’m a 38 year old man with healthy beard, it doesn’t mean I can’t like acapella movies set in college and high-school about a group of loser girls who band together to find their cool, find their voice, and find themselves. And I did, hell I loved this movie. And you will too.

Making the most of load shedding

Mia Von Scha &kids
By Mia Von Scha

These power outages can really get one down. I know. I’ve done my fair share of complaining. We have a right to have a bit of a moan. But thinking negatively can really drain your energy!

I felt I needed a bit of a pick me up on this particular subject so a friend and I made a list of 100 benefits to the rolling blackouts. We thought we’d share it with you in the hopes that it will light up your day as much as it did ours.

Child 44 : a review by Daniel Janks

Untitled
Reviewed by Daniel Janks

It’s dark and moody, but it’s not too gory or graphic.

Bottom Line

Child 44 is a good film. It’s a bit all over the place and tries to be too many things all at the same time. But it’s a good, interesting, drama-serial killer-love story-historic-spy-noir-flik.

Why is teenage substance abuse so dangerous?

Mich Robb2
By Mich Robb

For many teenagers “having fun” at a party is synonymous with binge drinking and smoking weed. Parents are often reluctant to interfere with this so called “adolescent” behaviour without realising how damaging and life altering this can be. They often don’t realise that the adolescent brain is much more vulnerable than the adult one.
