November 20 is World Children’s Day, a day to focus on the rights of children as well as on how to keep kids happy and healthy.
1. Mums and Dads
We know, parenthood is busy: you’re doing the school or kindy pick-ups (and the drop-offs), making lunches, encouraging interests, teaching new skills, helping with homework, and giving a whole lot of love. We see you and all your hard work.
And… on the lunch front, if you’d like a little inspiration, take a look at these tips given to us by the Lunchbox Queen.
2. All the fantastic teachers and caregivers
Teachers and caregivers, school librarians and all those involved in our children’s education: you’ve got a huge job on your hands and you really make a difference. You’re an amazing bunch. Thank you.
Here’s how we celebrated the important work school libraries do for literacy earlier this year.
3. Whanau and friends
Where would our children be without our extended networks: family members and friends. Thank you to all those people who support parents and kids with love, time and a little bit of babysitting.
4. Our kids’ health professionals
Plunket nurses, GPs, dental nurses, specialists, thank you to the cohort of people who make it their job to keep our kids healthy and happy.
For some ideas for keeping kids active and injury free, take a look at the tips physio Rebecca Dodson gave us, here.
5. All our kids
Last but certainly not least, a big shout out to all the children of Aotearoa New Zealand!
