In Conversation with Dr. Laura Markham – Episode 014 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

Dr. Laura Markham is (in my eyes) the Queen of Peaceful Parenting. I have been lucky enough to hear her talk in London several years ago, taken her 12 week course and read her two wonderful books. Calm parenting, Happy Kids and Calm Parenting, Happy Siblings. *side note in America these are know as Peaceful Parenting - rather than Calm parenting I have been fortunate enough to speak to Dr. Laura, and we discuss all things peaceful parenting, where her own interested started, and if she intends to come back to the UK to talk ( lets stay tuned for that one ) amount other things. And of course how to parent peacefully! The founding editor of AhaParenting.com, a website I must refer every one to at some point in time as it jammed pack of blogs and answered parenting concerns from birth to teens. Dr. Laura also serves as a parenting expert for many websites. She makes frequent TV and radio appearances and has been interviewed for hundreds of articles by publications as diverse as The Wal...

The Free From Fad Myth – Episode 013 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

Free from products are appearing in waves at supermarkets now and as a mum to two children who suffer from allergies and a vegan myself, I couldn't be happier. However, more now than ever, I am seeing an increase of children with allergies but also trouble with parents actually getting a diagnosis. Not only that but people, tend to not believe you when you list off a host of allergens. I'm pretty lucky that I have some very supportive friends, but that isn't to say I haven't come across people ( including family) who seems to think the allergies are just to be "awkward" or for "attention". Add to that the increase in people leading elimination diets for health reason other than allergies and it's pretty hard to be taken seriously when you are out for food. Nothing is more exciting for the family when we hear about a gluten-free vegan menu! I planned this podcast when I saw how a young boy in Blackpool had been affected after being given the wrong cheese, not knowing a few days later...

The Permissive Myth – Episode 012 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

People seem to think if you a Permissive parent (you never say no), if aren't authoritarian by punishing your children to learn, putting them in timeouts and giving them a small "tap" to learn. How will they ever learn without a good dose of fear and adult rule? It is actually the"Authoritative" ( not be confused with authoritarian) style of parenting I choose to follow, rather than a permissive, let them do anything style. It's important that my children feel safe with me and that comes from modelling, setting clear boundaries and being empathic to the children's needs, you know treating them like a human rather than my belonging. It was thinking about boundaries in my own life, that I realised that the style of parenting received (the good old traditional slap them to learn) has made me very fearful of setting boundaries with people in my adult life. What I needed to learn was it was ok to say no, it's ok to be disappointed and sad, and it's ok to let people down. Instead, I find ...

The Sleep Myth – Episode 011 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

The sleep myth everyone has one. Let's clear it up now. Babies are NOT designed to sleep through the night. If fact it's dangerous for your young baby to sleep that deeply. Know that even the experts have children who don't sleep through the night. I promise you because I teach positive, gentle sleep techniques and I've had a terrible few weeks. I've survived though! I've had to take a break from the podcast as my daughter when through a developmental leap, which, as you guessed it had a knock-on effect on her sleep. So rule 101 during that time for me is survival. To survive, I need to go to bed early as I know multiple wake ups will happen. Being realistic with what children's sleep looks like is the key to getting through it. Don't base your expectations on what other children do or on what books are selling you an idea of sleeping through tell you. I believe if a child is frequently waking after every sleep cycle there is a reason. Usually, this is a comfort requirement, but oth...

The Role of the Mother Myth – Episode 011 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

So what is the role of the mother? Now being a stay at home mother I am surprised how often I get asked "when am I going back to work?", "don't I miss being at work?", "don't I want to do something more?". Since when did raising two human beings mean so little? Since when was being a mother not a big enough job? Sadly the worst people for this are women themselves. Yes, sadly the most judgement in my experience have been women who see my role as being a mother somehow a danger to their own liberty, almost that that by being happy to be a stay home mother it diminishesanything feminist stand for. But a real feminist celebrates the choice to do whatever women want, work inside or outside the house. My job is to be a mother and it's a job I love and am honoured to do. So why does society look down so much on women who choose to stay at home and look after their house and children? Men are applauded if they make the culturalchange and become a stay at home dad. I even long for the 40's ...

The Village Myth – Episode 010 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

It takes a Village to raise a child!Yet times have changed from when you could rely on Granny and Mum passing down a bit of parenting knowledge, many of them have also lost their Village or were failed by the system. Gone are the days were Nan could look after the children next door. The Village that once raised a child is now rare. As a society, we have moved further and further away from our immediate family. Studies, jobs, and travel now see us scattered to new corners of the World. If you are lucky you might have a local relative to pass on some gems and tips. The reality for most new mums is, however, that they are learning alone. This is so evident in the increase in PND, failed breastfeeding and the shift to a more hospitalised birth. We have stopped the exchange of knowledge from generation to generation and mothers are being failed by the creation of this separated, "in it for ourselves" society. Women have raised Children for years and only in the last 40 years has it beco...

In Conversation with Birth Photography – Episode 009 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

Is the UK ready for Birth Photography? Should it not be as important if not more important than having our wedding photos taken? We never get the day our children are born back. Do we, however, have to address what birth is first? For too long birth has been seen as something scary and not embraced, rather than documented as an emotional and natural event. When we learn to love birth will the idea of birth photography become more popular and successful? In this episode, I speak to Hannah Palamara the founder of UK Professional birth Photographers about the movement towards more birth photography in the UK. Hannahis one of London's leading birth photographers, she's captured numerous births in London, Kent, and Sussex. She's documented birth stories in hospitals, birth centers, and homes. Her goal is to tell your story as it unfolds...giving you tangible memories from one of the most important days of your life. The art of Birth photography is a slowly growing movement across the glo...

Nature, Nurture Myth – Episode 008 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

A new year brings new goals and exciting new adventures. It's most popular of the year for people to focus on setting goals of self-development and a great time to draw a line under the previous 12 months. With it though comes the return to reality, the change from the excitement of the break over the festival holidays back to the norm. This is not only for children but for parents too. it can be altogethervery overwhelming. Is how we deal with this though down to our own upbringing? Many parenting experts and psychologists suggest that our parent's modeling leads to how we parent ourselves. Perhaps that leads us to ensure we follow a different path or maybe we follow the same one as them. Either way, from In Utero our parents make us who we are leading to conclude maybe it is both nature and nurture creating us. In this week's podcast, I talk about how I deal with my anxiety and where I get my support. What my anxiety causes and how I try to ensure that I don't pass that on to my o...

The Hippy Myth – Episode 007 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

It wasn't so long ago a close friend said not to turn into a hippy as they were "weird". Looking back now I actually feel sorry for that friend, that she was so wrapped up in consumerism that she saw love, compassion, living a chemical free,meat-free life and looking after my children in an instinctive way, weird. In fact, it was this reaction that led me to create the title "Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks", taking a step to own the insults given to parents who follow natural parenting and go against the mainstream norms. 2017 has been about reducing chemicals in our lives and 2018 leads us to think more about the planet we are leaving our children, (I've previously mentioned my concerns, )through reducing plastic, being vegan and starting a compost bin. I talk about how our family is focusing on sustainability in 2018. Clearly, turning more into a hippy by the day!

In conversation about Breastfeeding aversions – Episode 006 - Knitting Yogurt in Prada Birkenstocks

There is a certain stigma around breastfeeding, certainly after a certain age. I've talked before about my own inability to share my breastfeeding photos. In the UK after 6 months, only 1% of women are exclusivelybreastfeeding their child. Now, imagine someone told you that breastfeeding can be a highly irritating and agitating experience! Is it not really selling it is it? The problem is that breastfeeding support is poor in the UK at the best of times, let alone supporting mothers who experience breastfeeding aversions. For most mothers, this then leads to abrupting weaning or suffering in silence. In this week's podcast, I talk to Zainab Yate about her research and work into breastfeeding aversions and agitations.Zainab's background in academia is in Medical Ethics & Law (Imperial College, MSc),and she is researching her doctorate inBioethics. Her working background isin Public Health and commissioning with the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK. She is Vice Chair and named ...
