Big Kids: Help! My Daughter's A Nightmare At Parties
play Episode

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

What happens if every time you go to a party your child ends up in tears? Should you stop going to the events altogether? Or should this be something they learn to live with... 

Well, this week on Parenting Mentors, a worried listener emailed us this exact question. 

Plus, How do you feel about dad jokes? Are they are good giggle? or are they the worse form of comedy? 

Well today's guest, Andy Griffiths has written a book full of them! He's here to tell us about the beauty of dad jokes and why the best jokes are the ones he learnt in the schoolyard. 


Andy Griffiths & Terry Denton's latest book, The Treehouse Joke Book 2 is out now! 


Hosts: Holly Wainwright & Andrew Daddo

Guest: Andy Griffiths

Producer: Mikayla Floriano
