Parenting today can feel like a competitive sport. You’re expected to prepare the most nutritious food, provide the most educational entertainment and be a chauffeur to all the activities. Dr Susie O’Brien thinks this is rubbish. In her new book, The Secret of Half-arsed Parenting; How to raise kids with half the guilt and twice the joy Susie outlines how parenting has veered off the path of instinctual parenting and into more difficult terrain.

Susie explains how we can all turn down the dial on parenting to live happier and more fulfilled lives.
