3 - 5yrs Clinic

For the first few years of your child's life you are an indispensable teacher.  The more you talk to your child, play with them and involve them in your world, the more they'll learn. 

But at the age of 3, they will begin to start thinking for themselves; what to play with, who to play with, and how to react when some child he doesn't know snatches his favourite toy. 

This period for a young child centres around learning those all important social skills: sharing, caring, table manners, saying please and thank you, making friends and having fun learning new activities.  But it's also a time for bigger challenges; maybe starting preschool or nursery, or something unimaginable - like welcoming a new sibling into the family.  This stage of parenting has so many rewards - and this section will help you enjoy each milestone as and when it happens.

Why young children lie
Young children tell lies for different reasons. Sometimes it is because they have done something wrong and they do not want to be punished, at other times they are telling lies for fun, to exaggerate a story perhaps. How you react if your child’s lies will be important in how much of a habit fibbing becomes.

Eating

Pre-school nutrition basics
Young children are, quiet rightly, lively creatures who need the right fuel for energy and physical and mental development. Unfortunately, even the most willing ‘eat anything’ toddler can turn into a fussy four-year-old who would live of jam sandwiches and slices of cheddar if he could… So making sure you have the basics covered will be important.
