Little Kids: ‘Is My Toddler A Bully?’

It can be really difficult when you see your toddler being “bullied” by another child. And maybe it’s even more distressing when you see your little one being the aggressor. We had a listener email us about exactly that. Leigh and Tegan speak to Kay Bussey, an Associate Professor in Child and Adolescent Development from Macquarie University, Sydney about why toddlers can be “bullies”. Plus Leigh’s WTF of the week turned into a light bulb moment when she saw Alexander unrolling the toilet paper! But instead of getting upset she appreciated his cute little smile and joined him in play! Anyone else’s OCD kick in for a split second there?

Big Kids: ‘I’ll Never Let My Kids Read Their School Reports Again’

Do you let your kids read their report cards? Would you hide it from them so you don’t hurt their feelings? Well, Holly learnt her lesson when she opened Matilda and Billy’s report cards at the dinner table, and it didn’t go down too well. Now she’s doing a social experiment and not going say anything at all…. Do you think they’ll even notice? Plus this week Andrew had a massive fail when he tried to “fix” his wife Jacqui's beloved electric bike. Let’s just say it’s not electric anymore.

Big Kids: ‘Is it ever okay for boys to hit girls?’

Do you think it’s okay for boys to hit each other in the playground? Is it just boys being boys? And would you still have a problem if those same boys were hitting and “play fighting” with girls? Holly and Daddo chat through a listener's parenting dilemma that involves her daughter being hit by a school friend, who happens to be a boy. But the tricky part is that her daughter doesn’t want the teacher to know. What would you do? Plus, Holly’s nail this week is that her family’s finally worked out how to pay pocket money to the kids… without cash! Because seriously, who has cash anymore?

Little Kids: ‘Who The Hell Am I Now That I’m A Mum?’

Motherhood has a way of making you start to question who you are, what you’re doing and whether what you’re going through is even normal. Leigh and Tegan chat to Courtney Thorpe, a mum of a 10-month-old, a stepmum and also a former Miss World, about how having a baby can affect the way you see yourself as a person and even how something as simple as dressing “mum appropriate” can have a big impact on your identity.

Little Kids: Teaching Preschoolers About Anti-Racism, With Professor Paradies

Did you know that babies as young as three months old can respond differently to the race of people around them? So how old are they when they pick up bad habits like casual racism? And, what can we do to teach them about ANTI-RACISM from the time they come into this world? Leigh and Tegan talk to Professor Yin Paradies about how we can change our children’s perception of race and racism from the age of infancy. Plus, Tegan’s WTF of the week was when she got a taste of a “child-less” breakfast… What’s that you ask? Well, it meant that none of her three little toddlers were trying to steal her food.

Our big kids live in the same world we do, and are seeing it change all around us. So, whatever our backgrounds, how do we talk to our kids about race?
