Parenting Triumph of the Week – The kids started attending a class with 3 other expat kids (Swedish, Canadian, French) for 3 hours every Monday and Wednesday morning and they adore it. Then they all go to school together!

Parenting Challenge of the Week – Olive has always struggled with constipation and has been having a really tough time lately. My mom is bringing us these probiotic gummies from America next week and I’m really hoping they will help!

Hope you enjoy these parenting links we found around the web this week. Have a great weekend and Happy Lunar New Year!
