  • About me: I used to own a chicken called Ruby, hence my name. I'm married with 5 children. 3 are mine, 2 my husbands. We moved to SA 2011 for my hubbies job taking the 2 youngest boys with us now aged 13 & 17. My blog is about raising teens in a foreign country and the daily struggles we face adjusting to our new lives. I'm an ex teacher with a background in special needs and autism and was a child welfare officer with The FA. I'm now an enforced SAHM trying to reinvent myself.

  •  Signs your child is drinking and how to empower them to say NO.
    Peer pressure is one of the biggest reasons kids drink. Adverts in the media show young adults, drinking alcohol and having fun, being grown up.
