There are times when we don't want glitter or ruffles or confusing designs splattered all over our kids' clothes. That's why we love Primary. Their clothes are basic and simple and can be worn over and over again. Another reason we love Primary? They're also making Halloween easy by inspiring parents to take matters into their own hands to create clever and adorable DIY Halloween costumes without having to pick up a needle and thread. Best of all, the costumes can have a second life—the hoodie your little guy wore for his dragon costume can be the same hoodie he wears to school the following week — minus the scales, of course. Scroll to see our favorite Primary DIY costume picks, along with details on how to make them and where to buy the essential pieces.

Your little baby isn't a baby anymore! Make sure you're prepared for the toddler years with gear and toys you didn't realize you needed for children aged one to three.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.

The fur is flying again this holiday season! Pomsies, the fluffy interactive toys that were a huge hit last year, are once again topping the lists of the best Christmas toys for kids in 2018 and selling out fast. Pomsies—as most parents already know—are petite, supercute fluff balls that wrap around kids' wrists, hair, clothing or backpacks, and have eyes that light up and change color, depending on their mood. The collection of in-demand virtual pets (move over, Fingerlings!) is mostly made up of kitties such as Pomsies Sherbert, but the pom-pom pack also includes Pomsies unicorn Luna, Pomsies dragon Zoey and Pomsies koala Sydney. Both Amazon and Walmart currently have Pomsies in stock, but they're going quickly (so maybe don't wait for those Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals). Here are some of the most popular Pomsies to shop right now, plus where to buy them.

Obesity is a rising global health problem. On the one hand a clearly defined medical condition, it is at the same time a corporeal... state embedded in the social and cultural perception of fatness, body shape and size. Focusing specifically on the maternal body, contributors to the volume examine how the language and notions of obesity connect with, or stand apart from, wider societal values and moralities to do with the body, fatness, reproduction and what is considered 'natural'. A focus on fatness in the context of human reproduction and motherhood offers instructive insights into the global circulation and authority of biomedical facts on fatness (as 'risky' anti-fit, for example). As with other social and cultural studies critical of health policy discourse, this volume challenges the spontaneous connection being made in scientific and popular understanding between fatness and ill health. read more
Maternalism Reconsidered: Motherhood, Welfare and Social Policy in the Twentieth Century
The Origins of Active Social Policy: Labour Market and Childcare Policies in a Comparative Perspective
In motherhood, many women experience feelings of great intensity, a strong and passionate bond with their child, and a sense of pe...rsonal transformation. For these women the experiences of pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and embodied care are felt as central to the construction of their sense of self as a mother. By and large, however, feminist theory and scholarship has placed more emphasis on the social and discursive structuring of maternal experiences, and given limited attention to the effects of these embodied experiences on subjectivity. Within this literature, the material maternal body has a minimal presence. In "Thinking Through Motherhood, "Linda Burnett revisits the significance of women s embodied experiences of motherhood and suggests that the understanding of maternal subjectivities is enhanced by these biological perspectives, whose salience has too often been underplayed or dismissed. In investigating how maternal subjectivities are constructed in the embodied mother-child relationship, and its myriad of invisible connections and countless tiny encounters every day, Burnett s approach sees the biological, psychological, social and relational as mutually constitutive. Her interdisciplinary study draws on the neurosciences, infant research, and psychoanalysis, as well as women s subjective accounts, provided in unstructured interviews. This allows a complex picture of maternal subjectivities to emerge, one congruent with the intense and powerful emotions and experiences described by many women. The inclusion of biological perspectives illuminates questions usually disregarded and has the potential to reframe feminist and other critical analyses of maternal subjectivities." Thinking Through Motherhood" will be important reading for students and researchers working in motherhood, women and gender studies, psychology, psychoanalysis, feminist studies, and sociology. It will also be extremely useful for professional psychotherapists, counsellors, psycholog read more

This book is recommended for lecturers & students of social policy & social care; social workers; head teachers & school teachers;... parents & pupils; foster carers, healthcare workers, care providers, service users and the policy makers. This handbook broadly and concisely covers several aspects of abuse, neglect and ill-discipline in various quarters. It looks into a lack of compassion for the elderly, the physically challenged and the infirm; as well as insufficient care and attention for the carers themselves in social care institutions. It also addresses indiscipline in schools and why strict discipline must be enforced in the educational sector. Discipline within the areas of parenting and foster care is addressed, along with some specific examples of ill-disciplined behaviour among foster children and school children. The consequences of over-pampering are looked at, together with the accountability of social workers and parents. Some recommendations are outlined for curbing ill-discipline in these sectors and in society at large. Interviews with people from various places are included, and these briefly examine different aspects of discipline within selected countries. read more
