Why blogging with your daughter is Great

IMG_0333
From my point of view as Susannah's dad it gets her off all that social media like face book and makes her focus on writing and reading other blogs. It takes a lot more effort to learn blogging than to click around on Facebook.

From my point of view as Susannah, my dad and I get to do this together. I am learning new things. I just learnt how to change background colors. I have seen many great blogs already. Dad and I have taken many pictures of the birds and Ben the dog together.I am teaching dad a bit about Facebook. I am feeling down sometimes and take it out on dad but I don't mean to and have trouble controlling it.

We have also included Michelle, my sister, in this blog but we are having trouble getting her to write a post. she is happy to pose for pictures with her Benny.

How I got my kids off facebook and onto something more worthwhile

It is frustrating to see kids get wrapped up in technology. I have come up with some strategies that are helping me to relate better with my kids and make them more productive at the same time.
1.I got my two girls -the bird whisperers to start a business -of hand taming birds for people who want a friendly hand tame bird for their young child or grandmother.
2. I started a blog with them called hand friendly birds.
3. In the process I found out what accounts they were logged IMG_0419 into and what they were doing on line and went for walks down by the river with them taking photos of Ben and the birds. I have found them very excited about the likes and comments they have been getting and there have been many opportunities in the reading and writing of posts and comments to discuss spelling and grammar.
4. this blog is doing way better than my own clarinet passion blog. It goes to show that you can get a better result helping someone else than you do for yourself.
I hope you like this blog and have nice things to say.

blue budgie hides in bookcase

Birds get into all kinds of places to escape being trained by our two expert bird whisperers. We had to pull a whole bunch of books out of the bookcase to find this little escapee. Before long he will be sitting tamely on the ends of the girl’s fingers as natural as if it is a branch in an idyllic woodland.

Ben the social dog @ the river


some photos taken of Ben on a morning walk down at the Werribee river. Ben is good with other dogs and people. He loves his off lead time. He actually thinks he is a sheep and has a wooly winter coat at the moment.

blogging with suzey and michelle on hand friendly birds

I started blogging with Suzy and Michelle on the hand friendly birds blog a few days ago. They love their birds and I wanted to do an activity that got me more involved with what they were doing. i have found that it has engaged them in the process of liking and commenting on other people’s blogs. we have found some blogs about birds and dogs but not very many. If there are any bloggers out there who are blogging with their kids let us know how you are getting along
