Should children wear make up?

To many dads with daughters, make-up is a complete mystery. I include myself in this. As the only man in my household, I am at a great disadvantage. With my kids having reached an age where they’re getting curious about make up, I increasing find myself in a position that leaves me confused. Why confused? Well, I am not sure children should wear make up yet I find it amusing because it’s often funny when they do.

Cyber security Q&A with David Emm

A little while ago, I received an email. It was one of those messages that instantly caught my attention. It was from cyber security specialist Kaspersky. The email quoted research stating 87% of parents would fit stairgates in their home to protect their children, but only 13% use online security systems. That, however, wasn’t all.

Family adventures in a Citroën C3 Aircross

I recently did a write up of the Citroën C3 Aircross. I found it to be a very impressive car, especially considering the price tag. Was it, however, the kind of vehicle that you could have a real family adventure in?
