At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.
We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.
Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.
Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.
Give and take is a simple idea where two individuals of any relationship equally contribute to its growth.
In the hope that no one in a relationship feels burned out, both should put in equal efforts and also try to be present as and when required. No one should go out of their way to do something as it creates a higher expectation of getting something in return.
Many writers and psychologists have explored this concept, which allows us to apply their theories and ideas practically in relationships. Although there are not innumerable give-and-take quotes, the ones we have are sufficient to diversify our viewpoints. So, let us go through them!
Some amazing give-and-take quotes to live by on a long-term basis.
