Back to School Shopping: Preparing to Start Secondary School

With the first week of the Summer holidays already behind us, I’ve been starting to think about the back to school preparations. There’s always a lot to get ready, but even more so this year with our eldest child starting secondary school.

The transition from Juniors (or primary school) to secondary school is a big jump, and it hardly feels like any time at all since he started in reception! There is so much to stock up on, from the school blazers and ties, to bags, shoes and stationary. I’ve found it really helpful to make lists so that nothing will be missed.

Summer at Jump In Trampoline Park

Jump In is a brilliant place to take the kids over the summer holidays, whether you want to escape from the rain, or give them a chance to burn off some energy. There are 9 Jump In trampoline parks across the UK, and we visited our local Slough Jump In with four children aged 2-11.

This was my first time at Jump In, although the older children had been before for friends birthday parties. I was impressed with the amount of different activities within this trampoline park, especially with how well it caters for the little ones as well as the older children. It’s not always easy balancing the needs of a toddler plus older siblings over the summer holidays but Jump In catered for this mix perfectly, so that was a huge plus for me.

Laser Tooth Whitening & Its Benefits

With many of us venturing further into adulthood, we find less time for things we really shouldn’t slack on to make time for other things. You know, things like work, getting enough sleep, arriving on time, work, parenting, meetings, work (have I mentioned work?) and the list goes on. With this, it’s fair to assume our daily routine is never really set, and our oral health may just be one of those items we slack on. Thing is, yellowing of the teeth has more to do with aging than it has to do with skipping brushing. But both play an equal part as the years stack on. Now, how to fix that…

Dr. Marc Lazare is the President/Founder of the Lazare Institute for Biomimetics and Smile Design, as well as New York’s dental specialist, teacher and a dentist to the stars. He states that a white smile is not just reserved for the prominent class of society, but it is a healthy option for every hard-working individual no matter how old they are. 

It is understood that laser teeth whitening is harmless and there are no side effects. According to the American Dental Association (ADA) stains can form on teeth both intrinsically (below the tooth surface) and extrinsically (on tooth enamel). The ADA states that only a dental specialist can determine which teeth whitening procedure is best. 

As stated by Dr. Lazare, before a person considers a teeth whitening laser procedure, their dentists should ensure that their oral health can undergo this procedure for the patients’ safety and health.

What is asthma?

Let us begin with defining what asthma is and knowing the symptoms and treatments. According to the Mayo Clinic, Asthma can last years or even remain life long. It is treatable by a medical professional, requires a medical diagnosis, and lab tests or imaging. Asthma occurs when your airways become narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make it difficult to breathe and can trigger coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. For some individuals, asthma can be a major problem and interfere with daily activities and can lead to a life-threatening asthma attack, while for others it may just be a minor nuisance. Although asthma cannot be cured the symptoms can be controlled.
