In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be finding out how to put your child’s well-being first in a competitive world. By doing so, you’ll get permission to take your foot off the gas and reclaim a more relaxed family life.

My guest today is SuperMum, Tanith Carey.

Tanith is an award-winning journalist and writes for many of the major UK broadsheets. She’s a best-selling parenting author of seven books, and has appeared on the major UK morning shows as a parenting expert. Tanith and her husband live in London with their two daughters who are 11 and 14.

Today we’ll be taking to Tanith about her critically-acclaimed book called ‘Taming the Tiger Parent: How to Put Your Child’s Well-Being First in a Competitive World’.

From the moment the umbilical cord is cut, today’s parents often feel trapped in a never-ending race to ensure their child is the brightest and the best. Mozart in the womb, Baby Einstein DVDs for newborns, and learning apps for toddlers is just the beginning. And while it’s completely natural for us to want our kids to reach their potential, at what point does too much competition become damaging not only to our children, but to us as mums?

In this episode, we’ll explore the effects that competitive parenting has on us as women, how the extra work load of out-of-school activities is affecting us, and the impact it’s having on our relationships with our partner, our children and our family life.

Tanith will help us examine more closely the choices we make for our children’s free time, and look at it from a bigger picture perspective. She helps us question whether, in trying to do the absolute best by our children, we might actually be creating unnecessary problems for ourselves and them.

I’m overjoyed to have Tanith with me on the podcast today, because she can teach us so much about how to tame our inner tiger parent which will free up more time for the things that really matter.
