10:15 - TALK ONE - Sarah Ockwell-Smith: Being Kinder to Ourselves
Why are we so hard on ourselves? Why when the role of mother is to love and care are we so bad at applying the same principles to ourselves? For a family to thrive all members need to feel value and be happy. Sarah Ockwell-Smith, parenting expert, parenting coach and bestselling parenting author who specialises in the psychology and science of parenting, gentle parenting and attachment theory looks at the role of the mother, how society views the role of raising children, how mothers view their own role of raising children and how these views impact our children. What can we do to change what we tell ourselves and the world?

11:15 - TALK TWO - Maria Kemp: Yes, we CAN enjoy our teenage children!
Discover how to understand and accompany your teens through the adventure of growing up into adulthood. Mrs Maria Kemp, mother of seven, grandmother of one, has worked in primary and secondary schools for 14 years and as a Director of UK branch of ‘International Federation for Family Development’ (IFFD) has created and run the ‘Smart Home Management’ courses to enable mothers to enjoy their family life to the full. Maria will explore with us the wonderful but thorny world of raising teenagers as well as giving us a brief overview of the 20th International Family Enrichment Congress organised this year in October in London by IFFD: ‘Family, The Face of Humanity’.

12:15pm - Updates from Emily Tredget (Co-founder of Happity), Claire Paye (Mothers Matter podcast) and Ronnie Clarke (CareerBreak people)
