Welcome to episode 22 of the Slouching towards Thatcham parenting podcast.
Every week my guest and I each talk about and read one of our favourite posts, giving a peek inside our family lives. It’s as simple as that: bite-sized chunks of blogging brilliance!
This week I’m joined by Amie from the blog Finding Our Feet.
Amie’s reading a post titled The Unemployed Mum, in which she gives a frank account of the challenges she has faced in trying to return to work following her maternity leave.
If you have been affected by any of the issues Amie describes in her post, or if you’re an employer who would like to find out more about this increasing issue and how you can support parents in the workplace, check out MaternityAction.org.uk for more information about your rights.
My post this week, Do you know your own value?, talks about the importance of knowing your own value as an individual, a parent or a blogger, and not being swayed by the opinions of others or by a need for their approval.
Finally, if you’ve enjoyed the podcast and you’re an iTunes user, I’d really appreciate it if you could spare a minute to provide a quick review and rating. It makes a huge difference to how it’s ranked within iTunes’ listings. You can do this directly in iTunes or via this link.
