Podcast: Sarah Gregory on Parenting An Older Child

Families come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s no one single way of “doing” motherhood. My guest on this episode, Sarah Gregory, is a mum of four – with her children ranging in age from six to 20. Sarah explains what it was like to become a mum, aged 18, and how different it felt to have her three daughters in her late 20s and early 30s.

She talks about what a strong bond her son and eldest daughter have, despite the nine year age gap, and tells me about how she juggles the needs of all her children – and how she manages a hectic household.

As well as being a mum of four, Sarah is a writer and co-edits the About Times, an online publication which features the writing of women. It promises to “challenge everyone, to step out of our echo chambers and explore the world through a different lens” – you can check out the latest issue here.

Sarah’s a brilliant one to follow on social media – she writes thought provoking captions and makes you take a fresh look at whatever’s being talked about. Follow her on Instagram here.
