Life teaches us many things along the way, leaving us with valuable advice we can pass on to our kids, as well as other parents around us. Parenting is never easy, but looking back helps us celebrate successes and unpack how we’d do things differently.
Jessica Rowe chats with parents at the top end of their parenting journey, with grown-up kids who have left the nest. She talks to a working mum juggling her career and now-adult kids, as well as two dads who became long-term foster parents. They reflect how they’ve done their best working through all of life’s surprises and what they know for sure about parenting.
In this episode of Navigating Parenthood – Imperfect Parents, brought to you by HCF, we hear the insights and tips from parents who’ve faced unique challenges of their own.
