Our kind of normal
Becoming a parent can be overwhelming and there is a boatload of pressure to be a certain type of parent, to conform to never-ending stereotypes of acceptable parenting types. Being a good parent doesn't mean being okay all the time, or fitting into any particular paradigm, positive or negative. Everyone is different, thank goodness! In the first episode of 'the in between', we hear Mieka's story of growing up in an unconventional family and how not being 'normal' might just have been the most valuable gift of all.
