This week we speak to the big bloke himself and he’s got lots of tricks up his big red sleeve. Santa Colin shares how he keeps his cool under that big wooly coat, his techniques for wrangling terrified toddlers and the best response for kids who ask for a puppy.
Plus, even if you split the jobs around your house with your partner, mums are usually the ones left to carry the mental load. So why is that? Luckily Holly has a plan to fix it.
And if you’ve ever felt like your non-parent colleagues are, well, kind of slack… A study has proven, once and for all, that mums and dads make better employees. Keep it up, legends.
