I doubt Nikki Bush needs an introduction, but in case you haven’t heard one of her talks, read one of her books, been to one of her workshops, or seen her on TV, then all you need to know is that Nikki is one of the top child educational and development experts in the country, and there is always something to be learn from her.
Last year Nikki, along with Arthur Goldstuck, published the great Tech-Savvy Parenting, which is a guide to raising kids safely in a digital world. This year, Nikki has published an ebook, Back To School Sanity Savers,which is aimed at busy parents (which is all of us), with advice on how to save time and money, plus tips on how to keep our sanity (yes please!)
Suited to parents of pre- and primary school kids, the book has lots of tips around saving time, downloadable templates to help with planning, shopping and timetables and podcasts. It’s quick to read, and you can dip in and out, and take what you need when you need it. I particularly love Nikki’s thoughts on routine, how to cope with the “morning madness”, basic organisational tips, and my best – “Death to Supermom and Superdad”, on why we should ditch trying to be perfect parents.
The cost of the ebook is R100, but there’s a special for Rattle and Mum readers for the month of March. When you check out, simply use the code RATTLE50, and you’ll only pay R50. This 50% off offer is valid until the end of March.
