RIO FERDINAND has adopted his ex-Man Utd boss Sir Alex Ferguson's "hairdryer-type" treatment to homeschool his kids. Like millions of parents across the UK, Ferdinand and his wife, Kate, have just come to the end of their second term as amateur teachers. The retired footballer, who played teacher to three kids, Lorenz, 14, Tate, 12, and Tia, nine, while also raising newborn son Cree, admitted he’s a strict disciplinarian who isn’t afraid to be stern if his "students" put a foot out of place during lesson time. He said: “I think I've learned a lot from Sir Alex Ferguson. I've not gone for the soft-touch approach. “It's important to be disciplined with them during the school day, keeping on top of them. “These are my own kids and I love them, but they can be difficult. You have to give them a bit of leeway but it's important to follow the fine line. “We were having dinner and Kate said, 'tell your dad what you told me the other day'. They didn't want to so Kate said, … [Read more...] about Rio Ferdinand uses ex-Man Utd boss Sir Alex Ferguson’s ‘hairdryer-type’ treatment to homeschool kids

Cardi B has opened up about the cosmetic procedures she has undergone in order to boost her confidence. The WAP hitmaker, 28, revealed that she opted to alter her appearance with cosmetic surgeries in a bid to help her conquer her crippling insecurities. In a candid chat with Mariah Carey for Interview Magazine , the much-loved singer admitted that she endured years of bullying because of the way she looked.

A MONEY expert has explained how to give your kids a £2.1million pension pot by saving £7.90 a day in their first 10 years. Parents can give their offsprings the retirement windfall by setting up a so-called Junior Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) when they're born. The account lets you save up to £2,880 tax-free each year, and the government then tops it up by 25%, transforming it to £3,600. This is the equivalent of £7.90 a day, or almost £245 over a 31-day month. By leaving that money to grow in value, the sum could be worth £2.1million by the time your kids turn 65. This is based on the investment return of a normal index tracker fund, which typically goes up by around 7% per year on average. Of course, not all households will be able to save £8 a day for their children. But the tip is a good example of how an early start can boost your pot thanks to compound interest, while making the most of government cash on offer. Former financial advisor Alex … [Read more...] about Money expert explains how to give your kids a £2.1million pension pot by saving £8 a day
