Passarito Mon Amour
If I am being perfectly honest, I probably visit Passarito, a Portuguese cave à vin in the 11th arrondissement, way too often. Full disclosure: it is almost a stone’s throw from my apartment. Putting the convenience aside, I have even better reasons for my frequent visits.  As a serious design lover, I want to be ...

Marionnette Puppet Shows in little theatres across Paris
I cannot believe that I waited until my daughter was four to visit one of the Marionnette puppet shows. What a sweet effortless yet culture-rich activity for small children from one year old up to adults. We walked by the theaters in the Buttes Chaumont and the Jardin Luxembourg several times but I just couldn’t ...

A SUPER Café
According to my four-year-old daughter and her best friend, the playroom at SUPER Café is “super cool!” And as I am a big fan and a frequent visitor to the recent crop of dining spots in Paris which cater for the little ones (meaning I am a credible critic of playrooms), I'm going to have ...

It’s World Mental Health Week this week, which is a wonderful opportunity to talk about our children’s mental health and how best to support our kids through their emotional ups and downs. In the research @courtneyadamo did on adolescence for her Tweens & Teens e-course, @intheloop.teens she learned that it is normal for mental health and self-esteem to plummet at the onset of adolescence and puberty. Adolescence is a huge developmental period where children’s brains are being reconstructed, their emotions are supercharged, their bodies are changing and they are charting a path away from their parents, leaving behind the comforts and familiarity of childhood. If you think about it, it would be strange if our tweens and teens didn’t feel confused, anxious and self-critical at some stage in this developmental period. These emotional ups and downs are completely normal. Despite knowing this, it can still be incredibly difficult to see our children sad, anxious or angry. Sometimes their big emotions can make us uncomfortable or want to retreat. So what exactly should we do when we see our children struggling? Link in bio for some recommendations Courtney’s gathered from the research she’s done… #worldmentalhealth
