Young driver driving lessons #Review

Young Driver Driving Lessons


Young Driver offers driving lessons for 11-17 year olds (i.e. before they're legally able to drive). The lessons take place on specially designed courses at 40 venues across Britain. Youngsters have lessons in real, dual-control cars, with fully qualified instructors and learn the same skills as they would on the road at 17.

The emphasis of the lessons is very much on safety - our research, and research from other countries, suggests that encouraging youngsters to learn over a longer period of time halves the likelihood of them having an accident when they do go on to pass their test. We also find younger children are far more receptive to safety messages than their older teen counterparts.

My partner and i attended one of our local young driver venues and the NEC Birmingham with our 12 year old son Callum. 
When we got there we were greated by a very kind lady who signed Callum in for his very first lesson, he was very nervous but also excited and bout driving his very first car.
I must admit i wass a little nervous my self my 12 year old son was going behind the wheel of a very powerful vehicle in my eyes.
But the good thing was he had a instructor in with him helping him and telling what he needed to do. 
There were quite a few people there also doing lessons which reassured me Callum was in safe hands and had a very pleasant driving instructor who was very patient with Callum.
Callum had a little booklet given to him which the instructor filled in at every task Callum completed this book would be filled in every lesson you had and shows you the progress you are making and what needs improving.

I think young driver lessons is a fantastic idea and hope many opt in to getting their children in to doing them early on in their life as its around a quite course no panics no worries and helps your child get use to a car before they hit the busy streets.
I wish it had been out when i was younger i would have loved to have done it before i hit the busy main roads.
Callum really enjoyed his day and he cant wait to do another lesson.

No Lice and Stop Lice #Review




NO LICE! Preventative Spray and LICE STOP Shampoo Treatment are natural and scientifically proven applications for preventing and treating head lice for the whole family, from children age 3 to adults.



It’s well known that head lice are becoming increasingly resistant to synthetic and chemical products of late. However, research carried out by Professor Dr Mehlhorn from the Dusseldorf University, shows lice are less resistant to natural products like herbs and oils.





NO LICE! Preventative Spray and LICE STOP Shampoo Treatment have been used  treat head lice in Europe for over ten years.  Both products contain a unique blend of natural ingredients including the patented MelAza extract from the seed of the Neem tree.  Neem has been used in India for thousands of years as a treatment for head lice.




Whilst many parents are happy to use well-known brands of lice treatments containing powerful chemical ingredients to treat their children’s head lice, most aren’t comfortable using these harsh products as an ongoing, preventative treatment.



NO LICE! And LICE STOP are both priced at £8.95 for 100ml and are available from Holland & Barrett, Victoria Health and other independent health stores


NO LICE! and LICE STOP are both:



  • SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN TO BE EFFECTIVE
  • CONTAIN NATURAL INGREDIENTS
  • DERMATOLOGICALLY TESTED
  • PARABEN FREE
  • SLES FREE
  • DEET FREE
  • INSECTASIDE FREE
  • SILICONE FREE
  • KIND TO THE HAIR AND SCALP
  • PLEASANT FRAGRANCE
  • INCREASES SUPPLENESS OF HAIR FOR EASING COMBING
  • SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN OVER THREE YEARS OLD

Used daily, NO LICE! Preventative Spray is scientifically proven to provide effective all-day protection from head lice for the whole family – ideal for when there has been an outbreak of head lice at school or nursery. 



LICE STOP Shampoo is clinically proven to remove 94% of lice within three hours.  Apply to towel-dried hair, by massaging into the scalp.  Simply leave the treatment for 15-20 minutes before rinsing thoroughly with warm water and combing with a nit comb.  Simply repeat the treatment ten days later.


We all know when our children attend school they are bound to come in to contact with head lice its very common in schools.
So what better way to prevent them by using a preventative spray daily just to be on the safe side there are a few brands to try like No lice and Stop lice .
My daughters Michaela and Davina have very long hair and come into contact with head lice quite a lot at their school and it costs me a fortune to keep buying the lotions to get rid of them and it does not prevent them from coming back. I was asked if i would like to try No Lice and Stop lice shampoo and preventative spray which i had not heard of before but thought id give it a shot.
I used both the shampoo and spray as directed on both my daughters hairs the Shampoo worked to kill the head lice as stated it would do but I think Michaelas hair maybe too thick the preventative spray did not stop the head lice from returning once back at school even when applied the spray. On the other hand Davinas hair is a lot thinner than Michaelas and after also using the Preventative spray every morning before school she has not yet had any more head lice which i am very pleased about. 

Most schools send out letters about head lice and how to deal with them stating we should condition our children's hair and comb it through but i found that to only helped get rid of some of the eggs, it does not kill the eggs or the head lice you must go get a lotion from your local pharmacy there are many brands to choose from to suit everyone.
