What Would You Like To Read About

As my planning nature desires, I have a post plan for the Planning With Kids blog which covers the forth coming six months. So as we approach the middle of the year and I am starting to plan for June to Dec of this year, I thought I would take the time to ask my readers if there are any particular topics that you would like to see covered in the second half of the year.

In the next six months I will continue with my regular features:

  • A weekly recipe
  • A weekly list of 10 things
  • Children’s Activities for each month and school holidays
  • Monthly highlights from around the web.
  • Monthly goal setting and review
  • Book Reviews

As well as regular planning tips, I will be featuring series on:

  • Homemade Play
  • Christmas in July – Making handmade Christmas gifts like in previous years (here are 2008 and 2009).
  • Primary School and Parenting.
  • Preparing for secondary school.
  • Planning For Christmas – focus on planning when you have to travel for Christmas.

I would love to hear what you would like to read about over the next six months, so please feel free to leave a note in the comments or if you prefer, you can email me at nicole@planningwithkids.com. Thanks in advance!

    Always enjoy your recipes and your highlights from the web posts.. actually I enjoy all your posts.

    Looking forward to hearing more about your perspective on schooling and despite not wanting to think that far ahead… preparing for secondary school stuff will be good for me to read too!

    I always find your reviews and thoughts on various parenting books articles and ideas really useful too… so um… just keep up the good work! LOL

    Hmm, what do I want to read? I enjoy all your posts!

    I’d love to read more about organising stuff, getting rid of clutter, how you manage backpacks/coats etc, and organising kids toys.

    I’d also love to see more examples of routine charts and how you do reward charts.

    I’m always interested in reading about behaviour management, especially simple tips that can help the day run more smoothly.

    I’m also interested in reading about gifted children, and perfectionist children.

    I have learned a lot from your planning segments, especially the ones involving the logistics of raising a household of little ones. We have 5 under 8 so far, with one more coming in December. I can use all the suggestions you have for organizing the house, delegating to the kids, menu planning, and most especially, how to make individual time for each child when you feel like you are running on empty a lot of the time.

    Thank you so much for your blog, it really encourages me!

    Oooh, what would I like – a couple of little things really –

    * how you deal with sickness (parents and kids)
    * how you manage your daughter’s hair! (my daughter has curly hair too and I have to chase her around the house with the brush!)

    I’ll try to think of some more!

    These topics are fantastic and have my mind racing. Thank you so much for taking the time to list down your thought. I have truly appreciated it and will be including them into the plan for the next half of the year.

    Before the baby arrives, a couple should agree to ONE set of family rules for all members of the family.
    The worst situation is for each parents to live by their own set of rules . The sad thing is that each set could be right if judged on logic, but neither partner shows respect for the other’s view.

    It is a classic situation for not reaching a decision by logic alone. The result could be just as bad as using no logic at all.

    What do your experts think of parents who give their children different sets of rules?
