    TV vs Reality?

    This week we chat about what we think of the TV show “This Is Going To Hurt” and, given the heavy world news currently, we chat about how we are trying to manage unexpected questions from our children. We also had fun sharing our favourite mum hacks submitted by our lovely listeners

    Chatting to a Child Psychologist - What Every Parent Needs to Hear!

    Chatting to a Child Psychologist - What Every Parent Needs to Hear!

    This week we chat to Dr Martha Deiros Collado, a psychologist, Mum and all round lovely person. Martha is incredible at helping to reframe situations that parents will commonly encounter. We loved this discussion around the pressures of parenthood, how long your child needs to connect with you each day as well as discussing tantrums towards the end of the episode. It was a hugely insightful chat filled with lots of lightbulb moments. We really hope you enjoy listening!
