If your (not so) little one will soon be heading to senior school, here are some pointers to help make their move as smooth as possible
I am passionate about empowering parents, schools and society at large to better understand and meet children's needs. Engaging parents and families as genuine partners in their children's education, promoting holistic well-being and teaching young people how to learn are also particular interests. Alongside my work with young people and their families, I continue to write widely on educational and parenting matters in the media. I am very much looking forward to blogging on a range of family-related topics for 'The Huffington Post'. For more information about my work, see www.drsusannapinkus.com

Listening to the symptoms I described, our GP was helpful and prescribed us a brown inhaler known as a 'preventor' to try. Although he showed me how to use it, the demonstration was crammed into the end of a short appointment.
