Why bulky winter coats and car seats don’t mix

We are all guilty of overdressing our kids when we feel that the weather has cooled down, especially in Kuwait because we are not used to cold winters. Research has shown that we should never but our children in a car seat wearing their jackets as it can be very dangerous and unsafe for our children.

Watch the video below and please share it with all the parents you know.

The KFK Foundation: How You Can Help


Keeping our youth strong is absolutely vital to help them be prepared for the future and to be successful members of society, which is why the Kuwait for Kids Foundation was established. The KFK Foundation believes that it’s crucial that children must be stimulated in order to build a strong future for the next generations. The foundation strives to promote the expertise and skills of the youth of Kuwait, providing them with the tools and opportunities they need to become the building blocks that will create a brighter future for the world.

At the KFK Foundation, it’s our goal to enrich the lives of children by providing them with encouragement to help them shine in their homes, at school and in society, regardless of any unfortunate circumstances that may fall upon them. We believe in today’s youth and know that enriching their lives can help them to conquer any obstacles that may be between them and a bright future.

It’s our goal to recognize underprivileged children and give them the support they need to become the best they can be. Our organization is focused on promoting the excellence of each child we work with and to provide the society of Kuwait with the strength they need to ensure there is equality among all of the economic sectors. To promote the success of Kuwaiti society as a whole, we believe it’s important to help give the children of economically disadvantaged families the resilience and determination they need to be self-reliant, building a more secure society overall.

By helping these bright minds overcome the odds set against them and nurturing and strengthening them to achieve, we will create a brighter future for them all. In order to provide these children with the tools they need to become successful, we need your support.

Let’s raise kids to be entrepreneurs

I’m a huge fan of TED Talks. There are so many amazing stories, inspirational talents and talks that can change the way you see and do things. One of my favorite TED Talks is By Cameron Herold. called  Let’s raise kids to be entrepreneurs. He poses the question: “Why not train our kids to be entrepreneurs instead of employees?” Why do we hire tutors to address our children’s shortcomings, instead of hiring ones who bolster their talents? In our society have we made it so easy for our children; failed to let them learn the hard lessons and in no means  spurred their creativity ?

An entrepreneur since childhood, Cameron Herold wants parents and teachers to recognize — and foster — entrepreneurial talent in kids.
