My eight-year-old daughter was looking at an advertisement for tampons on television the other evening and asked me what they were for. I'm a single dad, and this made me realise there's an awful lot about parenting I've never even thought about.At what point do I need to start talking to her about things like periods?I suspect she's too young at the moment for a full lesson about such things (and I don't even know if I'm competent to deal with them), but when and where do I start?SLFIONA SAYS: While your daughter is probably too young to be given instructions on the mechanics of sex and how to insert a tampon, she's not too young to start to understand the basics. She's probably already aware that boys and girls are physically different to one another, so a simple explanation of why wouldn't hurt at all.You do need to start preparing her, as girls can start their periods as young as eight – although that is unusual, and most girls start between the ages of 11 and 15.I'm sure … [Read more...] about Ask Fiona: I’m a single dad – how do I talk to my daughter about periods?
The "Lifetime Isa", which has been available since April, is a new option for those who want to save up to buy their first home or build a retirement savings pot. The Lifetime Isa effectively replaces the Help to Buy Isa, which was introduced in December 2015 to help those who wanted to buy their first property with a 25pc government boost on contributions of up to £200 a month. Many experts say the Lifetime Isa is an improvement: the Government still pays a bonus of 25pc but on a more generous annual allowance of £4,000 a year. But there are some catches. We've outlined everything you need to know about the new Lifetime Isa, including the companies that offer them, below. Who can save into a Lifetime Isa and how much can they save? You can open the account if you are aged 18 or over and less than 40. You can save up to £4,000 per year. The Government will then contribute £1 for every £4 – so … [Read more...] about Lifetime Isas: how do they work and who offers them?
Like many first-time investors, Tim Wood doesn’t know where to start. The 24-year-old project manager has saved £7,000 of his earnings. However, he is about to take a new job, which comes with a decent rise on his current £45,000 salary. He wants to know how to make best use of the extra cash. Mr Wood is ahead of many others his age as he has no debt apart from a £150-a-month car finance deal that is due to expire in a year’s time. He currently rents near his work in North Acton, London, in a house share, paying £900 a month including bills. His savings are sitting in his current account, earning next to no interest, and he wants to improve his returns. He plans to buy a two-bedroom flat in Acton...

I am too far in to leave Facebook, but I want to register my disapproval of the company after their part in the data leak to Cambridge Analytica. What should I do? Ah, the urge to punish without denying yourself pleasure, if that’s what using Facebook can even be called at this point. But I understand your quandary: officially, I “hate” Facebook, the way I hate Amazon (which I still use) and hate my local supermarket for charging $7 for a loaf of bread because it’s another 10 blocks before you get to Trader Joe’s. But I still use them, too. First, of course, you should take what are now very well-publicized measures to tighten up the security of your account, although as I write this, I realize I haven’t done so myself. The reason for this is that, in spite of everything I have read about the incredible depth of information available to those potentially buying my data, including what articles I click through to and how long I spend on them, I … [Read more...] about I’m angry at Facebook – but I’m also addicted.
