Having kids is a blessing. Even on the days it doesn’t quite feel like it (and we’ve all had some of those, haven’t we!) But despite the undeniable joy those little rascals can bring to our lives, they can also be a bit of a handful from time to time. That might be why one of the best things you can share with a parent is a secret on how to make life just that little bit easier. Entire Mums and Dads groups on the internet and social media are devoted to tips and tricks that will speed things up, calm a child or make things run a little more smoothly. At Citron our entire mission is to create safe, high quality products that make life easier for kids, adults and parents. So this week we wanted to take a look at a range of accessories that should be on your back to school essentials list and will definitely lend a helping hand. Let’s face it, you deserve a break!
