Welcome to This Glorious Mess. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is. Confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises.

How can we better understand children who view the world through a different lens?  

This week Holly and Andrew are joined by Fiona Higgin's the author of An Unusual Boy. Although fictional, Fiona's book reveals the very real experience of a boy who lives with neurodiversity and the mother trying to care for him. But why has it got people talking? 

Plus, Holly and Andrew introduce a new segment...Parenting Mentors! First up, is classroom competition ever a good thing?
