The scariest part of parenting.

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?

  1. Looking forward to reading the series later. Amazing to hear how you have chosen to break the cycle and inspire your children to choose strength, education and ultimately contentment.

    • I’ll definitely let you know when they are live 🙂 breaking the cycle has been the hardest journey I’ve taken as a parent and we are still working on it but I have faith ❤️❤️ xxx
