Kiwi in Australia 1234 ,

Don’t listen - parent shaming!!!!!

I listened to the podcast about returning to work and utilising daycare. The “subject matter expert” and the terrible commentators were not only completely one sided and unbiased but they shut down someone else who called in and offered an alternate view (with evidence). This podcast is just gossip and here-say. Idiots with a microphone.
