    Maggie Dent On Raising Strong Girls

    Maggie Dent On Raising Strong Girls

    Maggie Dent is one of our favourite guests on This Glorious Mess, and she joins us on the show again to share her no-nonsense and helpful parenting advice. This time, she talking about her new book Girlhood, about raising girls to be confident, happy and heard. She shares her insights into the importance of the first 1000 days of their life, the social constraints put on girls and boys, and how we can encourage our daughters (and ourselves) to break out of that conditioning.

    Plus, our nails and fails include a professional photo shoot and the woes of moving house with small kids.

Love this podcast

Love Leigh and Tegan. They are so funny and offer great parenting hacks. Great content, my favourite was the Maggie Dent episode about toddler tantrums - I’ve listened to it multiple times ❤️

Need to be more professional

Lovely, happy hosts ! But jokes between the hosts about bribes and calling the police on the kids. All my friends are interested in how to parent in todays world, with evidence to back it. Would love to see hosts leave the advice to professionals. Bit old school I think.

BiancaG89 ,

Mixed bag

As much as love some of the recommendations, listening to Leigh whinge about some things being “too much” is a bit out of touch. Perhaps some more diversity of hosts also, not all family’s are inner city, middle class families!
