The great thing about podcasts (unlike the unasked-for and probably unwelcome advice you get from a stranger when your child is having a meltdown in the supermarket), is that you can choose the time and the place when you're ready to be on receive mode. Of course, it doesn't mean you necessarily have to take the advice on board, but regardless of what you do after listening to these podcasts, we're pretty sure you'll feel a little less overwhelmed, a bit more understood, and maybe not judge yourself at times when the parenting journey feels overwhelming.

One of Australia's favourite parenting authors and educators Maggie Dent gives you tips and answers to your real-world parenting dilemmas — screen time, tantrums, building resilience, homework and more. Parental As Anything is a common sense, relatable, practical guide on raising kids of all ages today.

"Hello and welcome to The Honest Mummies podcast with Nic & Han! We’re both mummies to toddlers, and know first hand just how amazing yet challenging life can be with little ones - especially right now. So after months of personal chats, we decided to start this podcast as a way of connecting with other mums, to let them know that they too are not alone in the life-long learning journey that is known as motherhood. Nic is a specialist registered dietitian, and Han's a qualified pre & post natal personal trainer, and together we’re combining our health and wellbeing expertise, along with our honest experiences of all things motherhood - so expect chats on birth, surviving maternity leave, fitness and nutrition, sleep, toddler tantrums and much more! We really hope you enjoy this mini podcast series, to accompany you on your walk, whilst you tidy up, or just relax with a well earned cuppa."

What's it really like to be a parent? And how come no one ever warned UK comedic dads Rob or Josh of the sheer mind-bending, world-altering, sleep-depriving, sick-covering, tear-inducing, snot-wiping, bore-inspiring, 4am-relationship-straining brutality of it all? And if they did, why can't they remember it (or remember anything else, for that matter)?
And just when they thought it couldn't get any harder, why didn't anyone warn them about the slices of unmatched euphoric joy and pride that occasionally come piercing through, drenching you in unbridled happiness in much the same way a badly burped baby drenches you in milk-sick?
Join Josh and Rob as they share the challenges and madness of their parenting journeys with lashings of empathy and extra helpings of laughs. Filled with all the things they never tell you at antenatal classes, Parenting Hell is a beguiling mixture of humour, rumination and conversation for prospective parents, new parents, old parents and never-to-be parents alike.

Is your child struggling to get to sleep or do they keep waking at night? Meditation and mindfulness experts In The Moment Magazine and parenting website have worked together to create this series of calming, sleep-promoting solutions and techniques for children who struggle to drop off to sleep or who need help getting back to sleep after a disturbed night. These episodes were written by author, psychologist and yoga teacher Suzy Reading and narrated by Gemma David of The Quiet Heart.
