The April / May edition of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting authors and experts.

I spoke to Rebecca Eanes, who has more than 1million fans on her Facebook page, about her latest release The Positive Parenting Workbook and how moving away from traditional discipline can strengthen and improve family relationships.

We can begin the process of real change rather than staying stuck in old patterns that are limiting us or causing our families to suffer. I know of no better starting point than a mirror.

Mark Ellis Jan 2018

The February / March edition of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting authors and experts.

I had a very entertaining chat with Mark Ellis, author of Digitox: How To Find A Healthy Balance For Your Family’s Digital Diet, who told me all about his family’s digital detox and tech-free Sundays – and left me feeling quite challenged about my own habits!

Amy Brown Dec 2017 - Jan 2018

The December / January edition of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting authors and experts.

I spoke to Dr Amy Brown, an Associate Professor in the Department of Public Health, Policy and Social Sciences at Swansea University, about her book Breastfeeding Uncovered: Who really decides how we feed our babies? and how society is undermining   women’s confidence in their ability to breastfeed.

I can’t understand why we happily drink cow’s milk, which comes from another species, but are so disgusted by breastfeeding. People sit in coffee shops pouring cow’s milk into their drinks while criticising someone for breastfeeding at the next table. It’s messed up.
