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 birth coach Hollie de Cruz about how hypnobirthing can transform your labour and birth, and even your life. Her book Your Baby, Your Birth: Hypnobirthing Skills for Every Birth is out now.

Interview with Mark Ellis, author of Digitox (The Green Parent)

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!

Parents have to do the heavy lifting and break their own addiction first. There’s no point telling children they can’t have technology on Sundays if you don’t apply it to yourself as well.

I LOVE The Green Parent magazine. I’ve been a subscriber since early 2011 when I was pregnant with my older son and I’m still excited when my copy drops through the door. When I’ve subscribed to other magazines for more than a year I’ve often found that they start to repeat themselves, but every edition of The Green Parent manages to stay fresh and inspiring.

As an example, the latest issue includes articles about baby wearing, how to start a blog, stand up comedy, healthy cake recipes, home education, creativity, natural beauty products and how to awaken joy in your children’s lives. And that’s just a snapshot!

My first Green Parent feature appeared in the February/March 2013 edition and was entitled Could You Be A Stay At Home Mum? (I wasn’t an SAHM then but am now, so apparently I could!). Since the June/July 2014 edition I’ve written the regular Meet The Author series, and have had the privilege of interviewing the likes of Gretchen RubinKim John Payne, Janet Lansbury, Richard Louv and Milli Hill.  You can find all my Green Parent stories here.

The Green Parent comes out every two months and is available in print and in a digital format. A 12-issue subscription (which lasts two years) costs £35 but you can get £5 off when you use my promotional code. Just head to the subscription page and enter HHILES in the “Do you have a coupon code?” box in the billing details section.

 

 

Interview with Ellie Stoneley, author of Milky Moments (The Green Parent)

Interview with Ellie Stoneley, author of Milky Moments (The Green Parent)

green-parent-dec-2016The December / January edition of The Green Parent includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting experts.

I spoke to Ellie Stoneley, author of award-winning children’s picture book Milky Moments, about the importance of encouraging and normalising breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding is normal and it’s a normal part of family life that doesn’t need to be locked away or done in private. Just feed your child as and when they want it. […] It’s a very special time, and for many families, a very treasured part of childhood.
