Welcome to This Glorious Mess Big Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is. Confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises. The science kids vs the artsy kids, it's an age-old debate. But what if we have been looking at it all wrong?  What if instead of grouping our kids into two groups we saw creativity as crucial to solving STEM-based problems?  Holly and Andrew are joined by the authors of the Wednesday Week’s series Cristy Burne and Denis Knight to chat about why creative thinking might be the key to solving some of our biggest global problems and why we should encourage our kids to think the same.   Plus, this week's listener dilemma... can you force another child to come to your kids birthday if their parents said no?  LINKS Cristy and Denis's book Wednesday Weeks and the Tower of Shadow is out now!  CREDITS Hosts:Holly Wainwright & Andrew Daddo Guests: Cristy Burne and Denis Knight Producer: Mikayla Floriano  CONTACT US Send your parenting dilemmas to tgm@mamamia.com.au Looking for a community of like-minded parents?

Welcome to This Glorious Mess Little Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is - confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises! Are our boys and girls innately differently? Or are we nurturing them with gender in mind? Last week, we looked into how we can better nurture our boys but today we're switching gears and focusing on our girls. What can we do to support them best? Or should we be raising our little girls and boys the same, regardless of gender? To help us unpack this Tegan and Leigh are joined by clinical psychologist Rachel Samson.  Plus, what do you call your kids toys?

"Having a smartphone device does not actually add any positive value to our kids' lives. We just give in because everyone else did"  - Anonymous listener  This week at Mamamia HQ we received a pretty distressing voicemail from one of our listeners. She said that her 'happy go lucky' daughter has 'developed the language akin to a drunken sailor, become argumentative and moody' all because of a chat room app.  For this one, we asked the village. We asked you what you really think about phones and socials, how have you made them work? What kind of boundaries have you put in place? Has your family had positive experiences?  Plus, we brought in an expert, Kirra Pendergast from Safe On Social to help put this whole socials debate to rest.  LINKS Do you want to know how to keep kids safe online?

Welcome to This Glorious Mess Little Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is - confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises! How can we better raise our boys? How do we deal with their physical demands, their tantrums, their energy?  In the first episode of our two-part special, we're investigating the gendered differences and similarities when it comes to raising our little ones. And for this first episode, we're focusing on our boys!  We're unpacking our own subconscious bias when it comes to gender, nature vs nurture, how we can exercise sensitivity, why roughhousing might actually be helpful and how to tame the inevitable tantrum.  Plus, we have a listener dilemma from a mum who's having trouble sleep settling her little one.  LINKS You can find Leigh's apartment organisation inspiration on Instagram @anorganisedapartment RECOMMENDATIONS Leigh: Car Bag For Travelling Toys Tegan:Kmart Car Organiser CREDITS Host: Leigh Campbell & Tegan Natoli Guest: Alex Emms, Parenting Coach at Kids Flourish Producers: Mikayla Floriano CONTACT US Share your listener dilemmas with us!

Welcome to This Glorious Mess Big Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is. Confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises. Do you think are a large part of your personality has been influenced by where you sit within the family constellation?  Well if you answered yes, you might be onto something. In fact, a man by the name of Frank Sulloway pioneered birth theory. After studying over 6000 scientists and social reformers he theorised that your place in the family coincided with your ability to accept or challenge ideas. Michael Grose our guest today wrote a book all about this stuff back in 2003, Why First-Borns Rule the World and Last-Borns Want to Change It. This year he's re-releasing it because families have changed a lot since then, they’re getting smaller. And with that comes a whole lot more to unpack. So is birth theory something we should factor into parenting or as Andrew says is it just a convenient excuse for not getting along with things...  LINKS The revised edition of Michael's book, Why First-Borns Rule the World and Last-Borns Want to Change, is out June 1st.  CREDITS Hosts:Holly Wainwright & Andrew Daddo Guest: Michael Grose Producer: Mikayla Floriano  CONTACT US Send your parenting dilemmas to tgm@mamamia.com.au Looking for a community of like-minded parents?

Welcome to This Glorious Mess Little Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is - confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises! Getting pregnant the second time around isn't always easy. Just because your body has done it before, doesn't mean it will 'know what to do' when it comes to expanding the family the second, third or even fourth time around.  Secondary infertility is all about the struggle to conceive after having a child. There isn't always a conclusive diagnosis as to why you may be infertile, besides the obvious factors, age, your egg reserve and ovulation issues, which can leave anyone feeling a little hopeless. This week we unpack the misconceptions, the bad advice, assisted fertility and what you need to know if you're thinking about expanding the family.  LINKS You can listen to Leigh on Get Me Pregnant now!  RECOMMENDATIONS Tegan: Cookie Cutters... for sandwiches!  Leigh: No Nasties - SLiCK KiDS Plant-Based Hair Gel from The Well Store CREDITS Host: Leigh Campbell & Tegan Natoli Guest: Manuela Toledo Producers: Mikayla Floriano & Emma Gillespie CONTACT US Share your listener dilemmas with us!
