How To Handle Toxic Relatives

When Did We All Become So Rude?

Are we losing the art of listening? Is our addiction to our smart phones and social media making us rude? Why is it so hard to RSVP? Be on time? Or just say thank you? Whether you're at home at the dinner table, or out in the big bad world on public transport, we need a masterclass in etiquette for adults. So mind your P's’s and Q’s people - it's time to reclaim the lost art of manners. Show notes The Well is hosted by author and columnist Rebecca Sparrow and Triple M Breakfast Host Robin Bailey.

The Magic Art Of Not Giving A 'Truck'

My Mother's Daughter

Is your Mother the mothering type? Are you?Did you learn your style of mothering on your Mother's knee or are you actively parenting in opposition to how you were raised? If the mother you got was not the mother you needed how do you deal with that?

A Man Is Not A Financial Plan

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Bec’s parents have been married for 52 years. 52 years! So how do they make it work? Bec’s dad said it’s not just about love - it’s about commitment. With the divorce rate these days sitting at around 42% do we just not have the staying power that some of our folks did? Or is the idea of lifelong marriage just not as realistic now in this day and age? Bec’s a romantic and likes to think that love can be enduring for a lifetime – if you work at it. Robin thinks love is for a time and that people change…We know partnerships aren’t all love and rainbows – so what do you do when you’re stuck in a rut but want to make it through to the other side together? Firstly it helps if you’re speaking the same language – love language that is. Robin takes us through the concept of the 5 Love Languages and explains how they’ve helped her in all kinds of relationships.
