Confessions of a Modern Parent

Friday, 18 June

THE SECRET LIFE OF TEENS & THEIR PETS!!! We all want them as kids, but should we necessarily get them? Is a dog or a cat a God given rites of passage for all kids and teenagers? Mark & Nadia reflect on the role a pet can have in a child’s emotional and mental development. What experiences do they encourage? Responsibility? Care? Time management? Companionship? Mindfulness? But also - of course mortality. Frozen guinea pigs, cats that leave home & mind-reading dogs; Maddie, Carlitos, Nadia & Mark share in their stories - funny, sad, shocking and genuinely moving - about the highs and lows of letting your kids have pets. 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.
