Good podcast

I don’t feel like Jules can totally say she had a “mummy meltdown” when she’s hardly with her kid. Cam does the bulk of the parenting in my opinion. Her meltdown came from feelings of guilt of shipping Ollie off any chance she gets. Always at an event, glammed up with no child in sight. Or out for dinner/overseas etc. She’s guilty and she knows it. Yes we live in the day and age where men are more hands on and that’s fantastic. However she is literally never there, an absent parent and still sends him to daycare when she’s not working.

School hours topic

Please, please bring in an expert to discuss education. Only teachers who are educating our young people are qualified to make comment on the logistics of the school day and the idea of changes to this.
