The Growing Up Guide has no funding behind it other than the hard earned money put in by the founder.

Due to this we will sometimes use affiliate links within posts – mainly shop style collective – to help us keep the site running.

This means that if you buy something through our referral link we might make a quid or two in commission – but don’t worry it won’t cost you anything extra.

The commission from these links enables us to keep the website up and running as well as helping us to be able to afford to run giveaways for our readers.

If you’d rather not use the affiliate link then just clear the cookies on your browser and it’ll be like you never clicked on it.

Sponsored content or adverts may also appear on out website. These will always been marked accordingly at the end of each post. We will only agree to post sponsored content if we feel that it is appropriate for our audience and something that we would normally post about anyway.
