Have your say

Breathe a sigh of relief as you prepare to wave the older kids off to school after the “eggstremely” long Easter break. Then check out some of the family-friendly fun taking place in Leeds this week.

Wake-up: There really is no better way to start the day than with a good old boogie with Morning Gloryville Leeds. Rave your way into the day this Wednesday from 6.30am at Belgrave Music Hall. Little ones will have a blast in the kids zone hosted by Baby Rave Leeds. There will also be belly dancing classes on the roof garden and Veggie Runners will take revellers on a run around the city before a 7am yoga session. Entry is free for under 12s. Tickets £8 to £15 at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1109162.

Nevermind: It’s not easy to get out to the cinema once you have a baby. That’s why Hyde Park Picture House’s Bring Your Own Baby sessions are so popular with new mums. This Wednesday, at 11am, catch new documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck – the first ever fully authorised portrait of the tragic music legend. Tickets £5.50.

Unwind: Don’t forget it’s World Book Night on Thursday. Involve the kids with help from the top four picture books sold in Waterstones Leeds this month. They are: Blown Away by Rob Biddulph; How To Hide A Lion From Grandma by Helen Stephens; The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister; Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox by Julia Donaldson.

Too much screen time playing games and watching videos on mobile phones and child iPads is feared to be a major factor in the decline in the ability of young children to talk effectively or hold a conversation
