ELMERkatieTAB1 (Large)When Katie was told her beautiful newborn daughter Emily had just days to live, she was devastated. But Emily lives on. Emily’s Star is the charity that Katie set up to help other families going through what she did, so that Emily’s name and memory would live on and help other people. She’s an amazing woman with never-ending energy and enthusiasm for helping families going through the hardest of times. Katie talked about the Emily’s Star project with incredible strength and I adore everything she’s about.

This week we had a look at whether offering your teenagers financial incentives for their studying was beneficial. I love a good debate – in Woman’s Own the lovely Joanna took the blue corner, explaining that she supports her children with hugs and encouragement but does not think bribes do anything other than put the child under more stress.
And in the red corner, we have Deborah, who was happy to stand on her soapbox explaining that she sees no problem with giving a reward to her children for studying hard. In the real grown up world, we’re all paid for our hard work, so is it any different? That’s the big question! Both sides argued their points eloquently and I’m sure there’s no right or wrong – every child is different.

Look out for the story in this week’s Woman’s Own and get in touch if you’d like to debate the issues hitting the headlines.
