Episode 068 – When I’m 83

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 068 – When I’m 83

In the latest episode I apologise for the break between podcasts due to my children being unwell.  I then talk about when my daughter asked where I’ll be when she turns 83, and how it brought about a realisation of my own mortality.  I discuss trying to explain death to my children when I struggle with the concept myself.

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 064 – Sex Beyond Biology

Tonight I talk about schools only teaching the technical facts about sex leaves the humanity and fun of sex education being left to pornography.  I discuss that girls are being expected to do things far more extreme than they are comfortable with, and boys don’t learn how to make sex pleasurable for both partners.

In tonight’s episode I talk about how important it is that we talk about it when we’re finding it hard.  How sharing your fears and vulnerabilities will ensure we don’t feel alone and can welcome the help we need from others around us, and how we weren’t supposed to go through the stress and worry of child rearing alone.
