The Happy Baby Podcast


Understanding Dyslexia

Season 1, Ep. 9

In this episode of the Happy baby podcast, Frank is talking with Una Buckley from Blossom 4 Life about dyslexia. Una is a trained dyslexic tutor and assessor and works with students on a 1:1 providing tailored multi-sensory programmes. She is passionate about changing the experience of others who face similar challenges as she did.

Una describes herself as being severely dyslexic. Her own journey through education was a challenging and lonely one. She experienced anxiety and bullying and remembers spending hours doing her homework each night. Because of this, she is uniquely placed to understand the challenges faced by children with dyslexia.

In this episode Una talks about homework, different learning styles and gives us so many tips to improve a child’s learning environment and ability.

Una’s website has so much information for parents of children with dyslexia and is a valuable resource for information to help and support your child - Blossom4Life – Courage. Fearless. Illuminate

Adam's Cloud

Season 1, Ep. 10
In Episode 10 Frank talks to Benji Bennett, author of the award-winning Adam’s Cloud books.Benji tells us his story and explains why he has written these beautiful books.When we tell children they are loved every day we teach them to both love and be loved. We reassure them, teach them empathy, and help them display emotion and affection and build confidence and lines of communication. From love comes love. From love comes respect for both parents, for themselves and people around them.Because of the powerful emotional connection made through reading combined with the positive bonding benefits that intimate one on one time has on children’s happiness from birth, Adam’s message simply encourages parents to spend 10 minutes reading with their children and telling them they love them each night before they go to sleep. Also, as Adam benefited hugely from regular adventures outdoors immersed in nature, another key ingredient to children’s happiness is regular family days out walking, climbing, playing or simply chatting together.“If you read to your children from the moment they are born, tell them you love them and take them for a walk as often as you can you are doing something right. The rest we just have to figure out as we go.” Benji Bennett.There are now 9 Adam’s Cloud books available to buy. These are truly beautiful books to read with your children and books your children will treasure.For more information about Adam’s Cloud and the amazing work Benji and Jackie Bennett do, see their website The Packs - Adam's Cloud ( or follow them on Instagram @adams­_cloud#newepisode #podcastsforparents #thehappybabypodcast #parenting #bedtime #children #lovetoread #adamscloud #applepodcasts #spotifypodcasts #childrensbooks #iloveyou #irishmammy #newirishmum #
