#136: RAISE – Lorraine Candy – Journalist, Podcaster and Author

Raising teen girls – does it have to be hard…?! Lorraine Candy joins me to talk about the realities of raising teen girls – the subject of her new Sunday Times Bestselling book, ‘Mum, What’s Wrong with You?’: 101 Things Only Mothers of Teenage Girls Know. I question whether the teen years really have to be so hard and what’s the best way forward for mothers. Join us for this refreshingly honest convo on what Lorraine calls “the most challenging years of parenthood”.
