Parenting with Anne Robinson #annerobinsonsbritan

Wow watching Anne Robinson’s Britain last night made me feel so good about myself . She was looking at parenting and all the different styles there are.She opened the program with the statement

Your all striving for an impossible goal to be perfect mothers . That’s where it has all gone pair shaped. There is no such things as a perfect mother !

Thank god ! I will stop striving to be this perfect mother and just be mom. Like one of the moms said on a scale of 1-10 sometimes I’m a 10 sometimes I’m a 2. It just depends on the situation ( love this !! )


She then looked at the different parenting styles that you may come across today . The first one which I couldn’t do myself was attachment parenting . Meaning no bottles,prams,cots or public schooling . Unlike many parents this First Lady doesn’t leave her children with anyone  when they are under the age of two ,not even her husband !! . Personally I think that’s crazy , we all need a break at times. I do love Ava but some days I cannot wait for Jordan to come home to have her for 5 minutes:



The second lady Corin followed the forest school ethos with her parenting . Taking a more laid back approach with very little routine. She then experienced life with another mother who had a very structured parenting style and focused highly on education and sport. I can completely understand this “pushy ” parent technique, I think I may be the same in some aspects . I want Ava to achieve the best she possibly can if this means me paying for additional schooling or activities I would do it .

I won’t tell you all that goes on but it’s defiantly worth a watch, she goes on to look at working moms and single parents . I have been able to find it on the BBC I player , so might be worth popping over.

This programme has just proved to me that it doesn’t matter what parenting strategy you take . We all have the same end goal for our children to be happy .

    Oooh, thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. I saw her on a tv program and wondered why but wasn’t concentrating. Now I know that she must have been promoting this. I’ll have a look on catchup. Thank you for joining the #weekendblogshare


    You do what is right for you and your kids…some days you might be realxed others more strict, or you might be strict about somethings and relaxed about others. i cant imagine having a ‘strategy’ and sticking to it all the time. i didnt see the show, but it sounds like it was a good watch #stayclassymama
