Are We There Yet

I just wanted to write in praise of the Katy Gosset’s podcast series, “Are We There yet?”. These podcasts have become my favourite listening tipple to and from work each day. As a working mum, I have found the series interesting, informative and humourous, and I love the way each of the relevant topics are broken down into bite-sized chunks and combine a mixture of expert information, parental anecdotes and comparisons to the past, with snippets of historical audio putting the issue into perspective for the modern day parenting generation. Despite the controversial or heavy nature or some of the subjects that are dealt with, they are sensitively handled and relevant to all parents stumbling along on the journey of raising children. It is comforting to know that your not alone in dealing with the many issues, big or small these podcasts have discussed. And to top it all off, it’s entertaining and cleverly put together, with a wry smile we can all relate to.

Fantastic short clips of parenting advice.

A great podcast with humour, relatable topics, and good up to date parenting advice. I love that it takes 11 minutes for this podcast to get me thinking on how I can improve my parenting style.
