A few months ago I was interviewed by a lovely journalist Kellie Scott from ABC life about becoming a parent and all it entailed, ABC interviewed multiple parents at different stages of parenthood and asked questions that will really help other people make an informed decision about becoming a parent.
It’s been a few months in the making and is a 4 part series, two parts have been published and you can find them here. I’ve had a read and it’s a really great series!
All the parents involved really shared their hearts and souls and I was really open about my struggles and my biggest fears for my girls, the fear that they will walk the same wrong paths I walked, face the same struggles I face and make the same mistakes I made and still make today.
I am determined for my children to break the cycles that plague my family, alcohol abuse, DV, sexual abuse, young parenthood, lack of education and remaining low income earners. I have a very large family and many of us broke some of those cycles but not all and I want the girls to know that with education and a strong, independent role model they do not have to accept that this is going to be their lives no matter what has happened in the past but that’s a whole different blog!!
So take a look at the series, I’ll post the next two links when they’re available and whether you are already a parent or plan on becoming one let me know what the scariest part about being a parent is for you?
