WHAT DO YOU HATE ABOUT PARENTING & WHAT DO TEENS HATE ABOUT US PARENTS??

A funny AND serious exploration of those elements of parenting we are simply too afraid to admit we don’t like. To suggest you don’t like an aspect of parenting runs the risk of being named and shamed as neglectful - but Mark & Nadia decide to provide ALL parents with a truly confessional hour of revealing what parts of being a parent are boring, tedious, exhausting, and unrewarding. However, the teens can also have a bit of a moan about how embarrassing parents are too!! Find out answers to these questions and many more in this episode of Confessions of A Modern Parent. They take questions and suggestions from listeners on their experiences in parenting roles.
