We have been very lucky to be able to review the award-winning UK national First News Newspaper for children aged 7-14. The newspaper is jam-packed full of news stories, book reviews, competitions and more. I had planned for Kia my 9-year-old daughter to read and review the paper for me, but her younger brother stole the spotlight.
We had an accident at school last week, which consisted in Kody aged 6 being rushed to the doctors and needing 5 stitches in his forehead after a run-in with a school radiator, so I have had him stay home the last few days. Trying to keep them occupied while still learning, we played a few games and had read his school books three times so when the postman dropped a copy of First News newspaper through the door, I didn’t even ask him if he wanted to read it, he instinctively picked up a copy and settled himself down to read.
An hour later he was soon telling me about the contents of interest, we had an interesting debate about Donald Trump and he agreed that children work more hours than their parents do thanks to the newspaper highlighting the fact that children aged between 4 and 11, with after school activities and clubs included are working on average 46 hours whereas adults work on average 37 hours a week. He thinks he should show his teacher this article to see if he can cut back on his working hours.

We watch the News daily, its full of crime, frightening clips, and negativity and while you can not shield your children from the true facts of the world, I am thrilled to know I can now keep the children up to date with important news that is age appropriate to them.
