Ed's Note It’s the final stretch to the end of another “masked” year. A season choca-block with final exams, obligatory end-of-year festivities (and also some authentically magical ones); and organising ourselves (and as far as we can, those around us) to the absolute death so that we can hopefully relax a bit come December, and obviously have ourselves a merry little Christmas. We hope to have some top-drawer inspiration at your fingertips in the pages that follow. An appropriate article on Exam stress written for Primary School scholars from Gr 4 and quenching Cocktail recipes to add flair at every party (or to celebrate the end of any mundane day). Decorating your home (or parts of it) with a summery coastal feel, repelling flies naturally from the garden, and parenting young children gently.

The way we talk to our children becomes their

inner voice Ref: www.yourmodernfamily.com

Stock image: freepik.com

Every morning, it starts over. We get a chance to shape the lives of our children. The way that we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. Think about when your kids make a poor decision… they spill milk on their homework (when they aren’t supposed to be eating or drinking near it), they break your favourite picture frame (when they shouldn’t be throwing a ball in the house), they don’t clean up their room, they track mud into the house… each thing after you’ve told them time and time again what to do. Your first reaction “Ugh! I wish that you would have listened to me… this would not have happened!” continue on page 6

Featherbrooke News  11 2021 5


The way we talk to our children becomes their

inner voice Continued from page 5

Last year, I started trying something different. I looked at the ACTION, not my kids. Instead of reacting with anger, we reacted with empathy. I stopped yelling, stop reprimanding, but instead, just gave the consequence with sincere empathy. Yes, our words resonate with our children. Remind your kids that you love them, no matter what they’ve done. THESE FOUR WORDS WILL CHANGE THE WAY THAT YOU PARENT:

“I LOVE YOU AND…” You are telling them that you love them even though they have done something that you aren’t happy about. That doesn’t change how much you love them. When our kids do something that I disapprove of, I often start with “I love you so much. Your choice today made me really sad, and it wasn’t what I expected from you” or I will discipline them and talk to them afterward. We should be telling our kids every day, “I love you all the time. I love you when I am happy or sad. I love you when I am excited or angry. I love you when you make good choices and bad choices. I love you when you are home or away” … (the list goes on & on).

You can’t take it back. "We should be telling our kids every day, “I love you all the time. I love you when I am happy or sad. I love you when I am excited or angry..."

I was a teacher and one time I had a conference with a student and his family. When I told his parents about his declining reading score, he looked right at his son and said “Do you even try?” and looked back at me and said, “Sometimes, he can be so dumb.”

I was dumbfounded. What on earth is going on here?! I used that opportunity to build up the child and explain his many, many strengths. The point is that you can’t take it back. You can’t take back words like “lazy” or “dumb” or “thoughtless” or “mean” – once they are out there, they stay out there. Your kids continue to hear these words in their heads.

Stock image: freepik.com

Instead of “You are so lazy. Get up and help me!” Try “You work so hard. Can you give me a hand? It will get done so much faster.” I can (almost) guarantee that it will work 100% better than going the negative route. Instead of tearing them down, you are building them up and achieving the same end result: they are helping you.

Exam Stress Continued from page 8

Getting ready to study It’s never too late to set up good study habits. Here are some helpful ideas: • Find a quiet place to study without distractions. • Set-up your study space. Make sure it’s not too cluttered and has everything you might need.

Tips to help while studying Try these tips and tricks: • Stick to a routine by eating and sleeping at around the same time each day • Get a good night’s sleep. This gives your brain time to recharge and remember what you’ve learnt.

• Find out as much as you can about the exam so you can prepare.

• Give yourself mini rewards once you achieve your study goals – watch a TV show or go for a run

• Ask your teacher if you’re unsure of what will be tested.

• Keep focused on your study – don’t let other stuff like friendship worries distract you.

• Learn to make ‘mind maps’ and use them to collect ideas and thoughts, use bright colours to help remember important links.

• Avoid junk food - it will bring a sudden burst of energy and then fall away quickly leaving you feeling worn-out.

• Make a plan of what you want to work on in each study session. Break it down into small tasks and work on one task at a time.

• Eat a well-balanced diet - lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, cereals, grains, nuts and protein are all good for the brain and energy levels.

• Take regular short breaks – use this time to have a drink, get something to eat or play with a pet. • Ask for help - If you’re having trouble with something you’re studying ask a teacher, friend, sibling or parent to help.

• Allow yourself time to rest – try out some relaxation activities like deep breathing, meditation or listening to music. • Cut back on energy drinks they can increase nerves. Drink lots of water instead!

Exam Stress Continued from page 9

"Sometimes people keep anxiety a secret because it's hard to talk about, they don't want to be a 'burden' or seem weak. But when it comes to anxiety, 'name to tame' it. Talking about it and having support helps a lot."

Ideas for exam day Here are some tips to help exam day go smoothly: • Work out what you need to take with you on exam day and organise this the night before. • Eat a good, light breakfast – this will help with energy and concentration. • Go to the toilet before the exam starts. • If you feel yourself getting worried before your exam - spend some time focusing on your breathing. • When you sit down to do your exam, take time to slow your breathing and relax. • Read through the exam paper carefully. Underline key words and instructions. • Work out how long you have for each question or section. • Aim to have time to re-read answers through and to make any changes. • Work on the questions that you find easiest first.

"Remember passing an exam is only part of the story. There’s always a second chance or another way to reach your goals."

Passion Fruit and Vanilla Martini Pour one-and-a-half shots of vanilla vodka, a shot of vanillainfused sugar syrup and two shots of passion fruit purée into a mixer and shake with ice. Pour through a strainer into a martini glass and garnish with half a passion fruit sprinkled with icing sugar.

Some tips from the bartender… Make sugar syrup by dissolving one cup of sugar in three cups of water over a low heat. Keep stirring until the sugar has dissolved and has a syrupy consistency. To make vanilla-infused syrup, scrape the seeds of a vanilla pod into the syrup or add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. To muddle a cocktail, use a pestle or spoon to gently mash ingredients together to release their flavours.

FB Interior Decorating

A Coastal Flair Decorating Style Ref: www.bhg.com

Rooms alight with sunshine, sheathed in soft, watery hues and lightweight, gauzy fabrics, are indicative of coastal decorating. A few essential style elements will conjure the coastal look with its casual beach attitude and renewing seaside energy, even if the shoreline is only in your mind's eye. continue on page 17

Featherbrooke News  11 2021 16


A Coastal Flair Decorating Style Continued from page 16 The purest, most immediate way to bring the shore across the threshold is to capture a beach-inspired blue hue and splash it across the walls. You might be mesmerized by a literal ocean shade, such as the turquoise of a Caribbean inlet. On the other hand, you might prefer a deep lake green or a grey the colour of a storm-churned wave. Crisp white woodwork will amplify the hue, so choose from the pale end of the paint chip to keep from drowning in colour. If you prefer the crispness of white clouds or soft misty grey on the walls, wash your favourite blues across linens or upholstery. Layer blue shades in multiple coordinating patterns to fill the room with depth and detail. Many interior designers advise looking to nature for pairings that work flawlessly. In this case, sunshine yellow, a natural complement to blue, is an excellent accent colour, as are sandy beige and seaweed green.

And bring pieces that evoke the outside world indoors: a terrarium, a weathered lobster crate turned into a side table, or artwork that depicts favourite outdoor activities, such as sailing.

Ocean Artifacts

Bright Ideas In coastal decorating, the emphasis is on light. Avoid heavy, dark wood tones in furnishings and flooring. Instead, look for beach-tone rugs and light wood varieties, such as oak, maple, and cork, in clear varnishes. Leave the windows minimally covered - or even bare - to bring in as much daylight as possible. Plenty of white in upholstery fabrics, window treatments, or kitchen cabinet paint will also enhance the breeziness of a space.

To re-create the look of waterside living, incorporate elements that could have been discovered on a walk along the beach. Pieces of driftwood coiled into a lamp base or a jar full of wave-smoothed beach glass, for example, make natural decorative accessories. Take care not to go overboard with the theme; too many single-theme accessories can lead to a heavy-handed look. If you fill a bowl with seashells as the dining table centerpiece, for example, don't also set the places with sand-dollar dinnerware.

Embrace the Elements Coastal living is often barefoot living, and what's outside the house is as important as what is inside. Look for ways to link the two by furnishing the patio, deck, or garden as thoroughly as you would any other "room". Create comfortable lounging spots for an afternoon spent with a book. Look for ample dining surfaces to accommodate a crowd. Featherbrooke News  11 2021 17

Practical Tips If you've ever lived in a coastal home, you know certain practicalities of this life must be faced - sandy feet track across the floors; harsh sunbeams fade upholstery fabrics; damp swimsuits mar the finish on kitchen stools - but you can remedy these issues with smart decorating choices. Keep to wood floors, which are easy to sweep clean with a broom. Use slipcovers to protect upholstery fabric. And choose hardworking painted finishes as opposed to stained woods for seating and tables. Typically, these choices accentuate the coastal look, too.

Fragrant herbs & plants that repel flies By Chris Williams  Catscapes  083 225 7451 Ref: www.catscapeslandscapes.co.za

Yayyy! Summer is here…braaivleis, rugby, sunny skies and…. flies!

While there are many chemical remedies, a lot of people are averse to constantly applying these to their bodies and environs. Fortunately, there are several herbs and plants that not only repel flies, but are also attractive to look at and pleasantly fragrant to people. continue on page 20

Featherbrooke News  11 2021 19


Fragrant herbs & plants that repel flies Continued from page 19 velvety appearance due to the trichomes which cover their leaves and stems. Wormwood is fairly easy to grow, and the oils secreted by the plant are yet another natural repellent for a wide variety of pests including flies, mice, mosquitoes, moths, and ants!

Sweet Basil

Lavender

Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum) is by far the most popular herb in gardens and in kitchens around the world. Known for its pungent anise-like aroma, basil is a favourite in pots and flower beds near doors and windows. Not only is basil great for cooking and for its wonderful aroma, O. basilicm is also a natural repellent against flies.

Lavender (Lavandula augustifoli) is often grown for its delightful fragrance and petite purple flowers. It is traditionally used ground or in dried bunches to add its pleasant aroma to everything from baked goods to chests of drawers. Lavender is perfect for ornamental planting around doors and under windows, not only for its appearance and scent but also for its insect-repelling qualities. Lavender repels fleas, moths, and mosquitoes in addition to flies.

Bay Laurel Leaves of the Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis) are another great pest deterrent. Not only does this popular herb repel flies, it can also be used to keep moths out of closets, mice and roaches out of your pantry, and bugs out of grains and cereals. L. nobilis can be grown in pots outdoors in summer to be brought in during the colder months. Bay leaves can also be dried and bundled to hang near doors and windows or to be dropped into bags of grain.

Wormwood Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) is perhaps best known for its role in the distillation of the spirit absinthe. The foliage of the wormwood plant – like most species of Artemisia – is a gorgeous silver-green in colour with a

Featherbrooke News  11 2021 20

Citronella Grass The pungent oil of Citronella grass (Cymbopogon nardus) is probably the most well-known herbal insect-repellent on the market. A type of Lemongrass, C. nardus is best grown in a controlled environment as it is also considered an invasive species. Unlike the subtle Lemongrass herb used in many Asian cuisines, Citronella grass is too strong to be palatable and should not be used in cooking. There are many natural options to choose from when adding insect-repelling plants to your garden. Of course, all parts of the world are different and it may be necessary to experiment with different combinations of these herbs to figure out what works best for your climate and soil conditions, and against your indigenous fly population. Before planting it is always a good idea to do some research. Test your soil, and add nutrients as needed to create the ideal environment for your new herbs. With a little hard work and a small investment of time, your fly-repelling greenery will make your patio or yard the place to be in the coming summer months!
