Mum’s the Word at parenting evening

Have your say

MUMS are invited to an event billed as one that will offer ‘amusing insights into the challenges faced by mothers today’.

Mum’s the Word will offer practical tips on juggling work, life, children and everything else.

It has been organised by charity Care for the Family, whose aim is to strengthen family life and help those facing family difficulties.

The event will be held at the Mount Murray Hotel and Country Club, Santon, on November 17, from 7.30pm to 10pm. Experienced speakers Katharine Hill and Cathy Madavan, who between them have six children, will share their own experiences of motherhood.

Topics covered will include: Does Supermum Really Exist? Choosing Your Battles and Learning How To Let Go.

Katharine said: ‘Unlike an electrical appliance, children don’t come with rules and instructions attached.

As mothers, we can often feel guilty and as though we are failing, by not knowing how to deal with the situations in which we find ourselves. We think we should be able to manage, because everyone else seems to.

The aim of Mum’s the Word is to help mothers realise that these feelings are normal and, most importantly, that they are not alone! Cathy and I are both busy, working mums and so know first-hand the challenges of juggling all aspects of family life.’

As well as providing lots of practical tips, the evening will offer clips and stories. Tickets cost £7.50. Group discounts are available. To book call Maddie Porter on 07624 491043 or visit
