For parents that have got little ones that are about to embark on their school journey, Kirsty and Amy discuss the tips for school readiness.

Talking to your children about what they might do in the day. Explaining to your child who they can go to for help. Often little thing can sometimes upset a child.

Children often pick up our attitudes, even if we are not aware of it.
