Keeping the kids entertained during LoadShedding is no easy task, especially if you’re not prepared. Loadshedding is here and it looks like it’s going to go on for a while. We can scream, shout, stand on our heads but that’s not going to help us in any way!

As Aidan turns 4 this month, I am sure that this phase was just another stage of development which will pass. So you can say I’m quite experienced in identifying a “threenager” & here are 3 signs that can help you identify if you have a feisty dictator of a three-year old taking over your home:
