Lighten up!

This is a refreshing and reassuringly honest, informal podcast about the realities of having kids - I say ‘informal’ for the reviewer upset that they don’t get to the headlined subject early enough - it’s not a lecture, it’s a loose and very amusing chat.
The persona asks ‘who has time for that?!’ - well, I listen to this while at work or while trying to unwind and get to sleep despite being wired on coffee and the emotional rollercoaster that my toddler takes me on daily, so there’s plenty of time in both those situations.
I’m glad it rambles, that’s just what my brain needs after hours of constant demands and surreal problem solving. That’s work and parenting.
Keep up the good work TNS - in a world of insta-fake super parents you are necessary and beneficial voices 💩 🍼❤️

Very relatable

From the politics of Paw Patrol to the raw realities of rearing offspring, The Naughty Step is a wry and hilarious look at parenting, with the added cuteness of Herbie’s little story time voice.

Tighten up!

Starting listening to ‘questions from childfree people’ and it took a full 17min before they got to the first question. What preceded it was meandering dribble. Who has time for that?
