The mom and dad struggle is real. Here’s your daily parenting tip from the experts at Parents.com and Parents magazine, whether you have a baby, toddler or bigger kid.
We all know those judgy mums; they think their view is the universal view ... they're always right, and annoying. What if we turn that on its head and use satire to point the finger at the judgy mums and find insights into parenting by a parody of the all too real 2 judgy mums. Strong language may be used. Becks is on her first marriage, second child, third pregnancy and is climbing the four walls of her shambolic house. She gets her parenting tips at the dog park and is one day hoping to get a dog. Her favourite child is the one who is asleep. Hen (short for Henrietta) has a boy, a girl and a husband. All three suffer from a rare condition of "not-doing-a-f*#king-thing-without-Hen's-help". She would rather do time in a Bali jail then do craft with her kids. She is currently navigating the uncharted waters of new school mum friendships. Her dream is to one day wear her active gear to a gym.
