National Families Week 15 - 21 May 2018


Families matter. So much. Family might be one singular special person, an unrelated confidant, or a tribe of mismatched siblings but they all matter because they are the ones that are always there for you, listening, disagreeing, rescuing, upbraiding, loving. Caring.

This week is National Families Week. I was almost too busy keeping the wheels spinning on my family wagon to notice.

But here it is, 'celebrating the vital role that families play'. You can find out more about getting involved, here.

Early Childhood Australia is one of the many wonderful organisations advocating stronger families through strong communities.

I'm delighted to see that The Fix-It Man is listed by the ECA as one of their 'recommended quality-assured resources'. It truly does warm the cockles of my heart knowing this story, with its subtle sensitive message of hope, is reaching out and touching the hearts of others.
