    "How Can I Be Sure My Kids Won't Experience Racism In The Playground?"

    "How Can I Be Sure My Kids Won't Experience Racism In The Playground?"

    How can I be sure my kids won't experience racism in the playground? It's a concern for so many parents across Australia and a question asked in a new anti-racism TVC commercial by the Australian Human Rights Commission. We are lucky to be joined by model, mother and child care worker, Keyarny Lamb, to talk about her experience with racism in Australia and why she wanted to be a part of this powerful campaign.

    Plus, our nails and fails include a stolen water bottle and a trip to Bunnings.

    Should We Be Asking Kids What They Want To Be When They Grow Up?

    Should We Be Asking Kids What They Want To Be When They Grow Up?

    This week on This Glorious Mess, Andrew Daddo returns! He's got more good advice as a Dad of adult children, this time on picking subjects in high school. Which led us to a bigger question; should we be asking kids what they want to be when they grow up at all?

    Plus, our nails and fails include a slimy slide and what happens when your son decides he doesn't like you.

    The Toddler Handbook: Naps, Nightmares & Big Kid Beds

    Welcome to The Toddler Handbook! Every week for four weeks, we'll be bringing you a special This Glorious Mess bonus episode about the highs and lows of the toddler years, enlisting an expert to give you the advice you need.

    First up, it's one of the trickiest topics: sleep. How much should they be getting, when should they be napping, how do you get them to sleep more and when is time for a 'big kid bed'? We're joined by Baby and Toddler Sleep Consultant Lauren Beeten to answer all these questions and more, to make sure your toddler (and you) are getting a good night's sleep.

    This episode was made in partnership with HAPPi: Australia’s first day and night toddler milk drinks.

    The Mental Load Of Doing Unpaid Labour

    The Mental Load Of Doing Unpaid Labour

    This week, we received a very relatable dilemma via our Mamamia Family Facebook group.

    A listener is on maternity leave and struggling to justify spending money on herself as she's not earning an income, even though she is of course doing a ton of unpaid labour. It's a dilemma that struck a chord with Tegan and Leigh, so we enlisted the help of our Parents Group to talk through this tough issue, and give some advice.

    Plus, our nails and fails include a crushed finger and the power of saying no.

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 ❤️

thecedars ,

No

Please get new hosts. Both these ladies are white, wealthy and have involved husbands. I miss the male perspective of this show.
