Big Kids: Raising Girls Who Like Themselves

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.

Our daughters today have far more opportunities than their mothers, grandmothers and aunties ever had. But yet despite their accomplishments so many of them don't like themselves ... so how do we fix this? 

International Women's Day is coming up on March 8th, so for this episode, we wanted to focus on our girls. Specifically raising daughters who are empowered, confident and value themselves in a world that tells them otherwise. 


Christopher and Kasey's book, Raising Girls Who Like Themselves is out now! 


Hosts: Holly Wainwright & Andrew Daddo

Guest: Kasey Edwards and Christopher Scanlon

Producer: Mikayla Floriano
