Clean Homes

Household cleaning products

All commercial household cleaning products have the potential to negatively impact on the health of your child (and yourself, for that matter).  They are poisonous if swallowed, leach toxins into air and are inhaled (affecting the lungs).  Surface toxins are handled and absorbed by the skin, all of which results in a toxic load against which your child has not yet developed adequate defences.

Title: Speech and Language Development
Location: Toddlers Workshop, 39 Brewer Road, Summerstrand
Description: Your toddler is turning two and is not saying any words apart from Mommy, Tata and Baba. You are concerned and do not know where to start looking for help. Kayla is 10 months old. Your sister raves about her being such a good girl; she hardly makes a sound while your 8 month old is babbling non-stop. What is normal and when should one be concerned? Little Jimmy is a year old and refuses to eat solid food. Is something wrong with him? How can I stimulate my baby’s language development?

If any of these questions ring a bell for you, you are invited to attend a talk on Speech and Language Development, presented by Janet Whitehouse, a Speech and Language Therapist who is currently practicing at Yvonne Gooding Speech-Language Therapists in Lorraine. The talk will be on Wednesday 4th of August from 19:30 – 21:00 at the Toddlers Workshop, 39 Brewer Rd, Summerstrand. The cost is R50 per person and bookings can be made through mailing Lynette at or phoning her, after hours, at 0837933320. Seats are limited and bookings are essential.
