We have these photographs up in our living room, three selfies taken at various points of our pre-marriage relationship, that I actually got around to printing and put up on the wall. 

In the general mayhem of life I barely notice them at the moment. 
But Dessi notices it and every time she does, says 'That's my Daddy and Mummy'.
It seems rather insignificant in the big scheme of things but actually I wonder if it is?

We send our pre-school children to nurseries and other child care settings to help them learn and develop, but we must remember there is a lot we can do at home too.

Displaying Family Photographs 
- Shows your child how much you value them and the members of your family.
- It gives you an opportunity to talk together about the family members (this also helps your child's speech and listening, which is no bad thing!
- It promotes a positive body image for your child and the members of your family. They will see they have a body and face to be proud of!
- Your child can have access to their photos any time, when they are easily displayed (rather than hidden away on the computer).
- These photos will stay with a child all their lives, less likelihood of being lost and damaged when treated with care.
