Show Notes

Unlock the secrets to bolstering your child's development through the joyous realm of play, as we share insights that traverse from rolling balls to screen time's intricate dance with young minds. This episode encapsulates the essence of nurturing cognitive growth and problem-solving skills, all while balancing the digital world with the irreplaceable benefits of physical activity. Together, we tackle the all-too-familiar parental challenge of managing playtime during school breaks, like the Easter holidays, and offer personal anecdotes that illustrate how play shapes learning and social interactions.

 Step into a candid discussion on the diverse personalities of children and how our responses to their competitive and creative spirits pave the way for their future selves. Our special guest, the ever-inspiring Audrey Hamilton, adds a vibrant stroke to our conversation, recounting her evolution from an actor in Ireland and Hollywood to an abstract artist and fashion designer. Audrey's tale is a colourful illustration of how motherhood intertwines with creative pursuits, adding depth and perspective to her life and work.

 Concluding our journey, we delve into the delicate art of balancing career aspirations with the demands of motherhood, from the challenges of late-in-life pregnancies to debunking breastfeeding myths. We advocate for an environment that honours and supports women's choices, whether it's returning to work for personal fulfilment or establishing a career before starting a family. As we close this chapter, we stand united in the belief that armed with perseverance and a splash of creativity, parents can indeed weave their professional and personal lives into a beautiful tapestry of success and fulfilment.
