The Things We Do – 14/4/2014

What are the ‘things’ your family do? Have you written about them recently?

Is there something you do to overcome difficulties? Perhaps a special place or activity that the whole family enjoys? Maybe you have learnt a technique that particularly works with your children?
If you have, then write a post about it and link up here on The Things We Do – let everyone know about the things that work for you…

The Things We Do – 31/03/14

Have you written a post recently about the “things” your family do?

Is there a special little something that keeps you and your family going? Maybe it’s a special meal or movie night, a visit to to a special place or an activity that brings a smile to everyone’s face. Or it could be how you’ve overcome a particularly difficult challenge. Have you conquered something and want to share how with everyone? Then write a post about it and link up with “The Things We Do”.

The Things We Do 27/1/2014

pantoWe all have tips and tricks, special traditions, particular routines, or treats special to our family that make our days go better and brighter. They might not always work, but they are…

The Things We Do…

Last week Sarah from The Puffin Diaries shared her love of pantomime – and how it’s provided her with some ‘me time’.

We’d love to hear about the things you do, little or big that make your days easier, or just a little less stressful. So if you have something to share, please write a blog post (or poem, or post a photo) and link up below. If you don’t have your own blog then you could tweet your tip with the hashtag #thethingswedo or drop us a line at theadoptionsocial@gmail.com and we can help you out.

A place to share #TheThingsWeDo….

We had a great suggestion from The boys Behaviour last week, who’d have thought a sachet of ketchup could be so useful other than on your chips?

There are so many little things that we all do to help us get through those tough moments. Maybe it’s how you manage your own time to be there for your children, or the little things you do to help you keep focused or calm. Have you noticed a small change in your routine which has had a great affect on how your child behaves? What ever those small or big things are we’d like to know about them, share them here.

 

We’d like to see a post or a picture, what ever you think best tells us how. Us the hashtag #TheThingsWeDo  and share in our link up below. Oh and don’t forget to add our badge.

The Things We Do – 13/01/14

So we started this new link up last week as a space for you to tell us about the things you do to help you along in life, ease family pressures and bring happier times for all. Thank you to those that linked up, we enjoyed reading about the need to get outside, open spaces and by the beach. Also a family in the midst of very tough times talked about coping strategies, a very touching and emotional post from Katie’s Adoption and Fitness Journeys . The subject of bedtime routine was raised, one I’m sure many of you can offer up advice on, and also an approach to holding conversations with your children. So plenty to get us all started and if you missed them, then please have a look here.

So what is it that you do?

Share your ideas with us in a post, it really doesn’t need to be a long one, you might just have one simple little piece of advice, which someone else could benefit from. It could be something to do with your children or maybe it’s something that is just for you, that something that helps you get through. Pictures or words or both, you choose.

You can share your posts on twitter with the hashtag #TheThingsWeDo and please do add our new badge to your blog or post. Oh and don’t forget to have a look at the other posts, you might just find some pearls of wisdom you’d never thought about before.

New linky: The things we do 5/1/14

Welcome back! We hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas, and enjoyed some New Year celebrations. For those of you who struggle, or have children who struggle with the Festive period, we do hope it’s been calm and peaceful, or at the very least…manageable.

TheThingsWeDo

We’ve loved seeing all your #MemoryBox posts over the last few months, but now it’s time for a bit of a change…we mentioned our new linky back in December and we’re pleased to begin 2014 with it today.

‘The Things We Do’ is a place for you to share the things that you have found useful…the little things or the big things; ways of supporting or encouraging your children; strategies you’ve used to cope; anything that gets you through the days. Not everything works for everyone, but perhaps if you share something you’ve found useful, then someone else can try it, alter it a bit, and make it work for them and their family.

So, do add your posts below, and as with all our linkys, we’d love it if you could share some on your own social networks (or even with your social workers!), and if you decide to try someone else’s idea – let us know the outcome! We’ll share your posts on our own networks too.

This is a week long linky. Each Monday a new linky will open, closing the following Sunday evening.

And please add our new badge to your blog to let people know you are taking part.
