Princesses Can Wear Kickers

Focusing on dyslexia, internet safety and what it means to be an expat family, my blog is for parents by a parent! No filler, no jargon - just easy-to-read advice, information and a little bit of humour.

Photo of the author of the blog, Rachel Begley.Once upon a time I was a writer. However any creative flair I had disappeared the moment I had children and I haven’t written anything for eight years. As I turned 40, I found that I do actually have lots to say… so I’ve decided to put pen to paper and write about my life, the trials of parenthood and living as an expat family in Thailand.
