Children's DVD Reviews


Cinderella

Diamond Edition
01 October 2012 | DVD Review






Prepare to be swept away in this classic tale of romance...


Cinderella

Cinderella is the essential fairy tale that will have every little girl dreaming of her happily ever after.

The ultimate rags-to-riches tale, the beautiful golden-haired Cinderella spends her days slaving away for her two ugly step-sisters and sinister, cruel step-mother.

Her life of drudgery is brightened by her adoring and protective little furry and feathered animal friends. But what Cinderella wants most of all is to go to the ball - but how can she when her step mother and sisters will do anything to prevent it?

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! - enter Cinderella's Fairy Godmother who can make miracles happen, and dreams come true.

Cinderella's rags are replaced with a beautiful ball gown, and a pumpkin and her faithful little animal friends are transformed into a beautiful coach and four white horses - Cinderella can go to the ball after all!

But there is a catch - she must be home before midnight when the magic spell ends and everything turns back to what it originally was.

Cinderella is thrilled to be attending the ball, and there she meets her Prince Charming - but alas! The clock strikes twelve and Cinderella must flee before the spell wears off and her true identity is revealed...

Cinderella has lost none of its magic or charm since its original release in 1950.

Now a whole new generation of little girls and boys can delight in this wonderful story, and have their very own Cinderella Diamond Edition DVD or Blu-ray to play over and over again.

Cinderella is the ultimate Disney fairy tale movie, and is an absolute must-have for every childhood DVD collection.

Cinderella Diamond Edition is available from 3 October on Disney Blu-ray or DVD

What does it mean to be a single mum?Of course, the

kids

are the most important thing in a single mum's life. Kids are the focus and always have been. But along with the children, there are other matters that can confuse a single mum's life.

Centrelink

plays a big part of a single mother's life, mainly because this is where a large percentage of single mums get their finances from. Centrelink are the source from where the

single mother pension

, or as it is otherwise known, the single parent payment comes from. The single mother pension is a subsistence amount, but just the same, it is money to live on, and so it is important, no matter if it is called single parent payment, single mother pension or whatever Centrelink welfare classes it at the time

Often, single mums come out of a

divorce

or defacto relationship only to find that their troubles have just begun, and find that their first step leads them towards Family Law - it's time to engage a lawyer.
There are more than just Centrelink finance problems to worry about, as mentioned before, but also

child custody

issues. Child custody is something that hits right at the heart of

single mums

. If a single mother's ex husband or ex partner has been a domestic violence perpetrator, the mum may be greatly worried about child custody. They worry that their kids won't be safe with their spouse, who has already proven to be abusive because they caused

domestic violence

, which resulted in a divorce or separation.

Even so,

Family Court

will often still order a form of child custody named

Shared Parenting

. Shared Parenting is a form of child custody division of time or parental responsibility between the parents. Mother's often look for a good divorce lawyer to try to avoid share parenting with an abusive ex-spouse after divorce, however in many cases Shared Parenting is still the outcome after the divorce, no matter how good the divorce lawyers have been. They will often settle for visitation at a contact centre or access centre where fathers or mothers are supervised during child custody access.
