this family life
About This Show
Hosted by Nicole Avery of PlanningWithKids.com, this family life gives everyday parents a chance to share their hard-fought wisdom. These aren’t bloggers or authors or even people with a big Instagram following. Instead, they’re everyday parents with practical, insightful, honest advice to share. Nic interviews parents who work full-time, mums on maternity leave, those whose children have special needs and parents with kids of all ages, and uncovers how they organise the chaos of their daily family life.
