Hello lovely faces! I’m Fi Star-Stone!
As a mum of two little ones born less than a year apart, I know that parenting isn’t always easy. My gentle techniques and approachable manner are popular with families and celebrities worldwide.
I’m a qualified parenting advisor with over 25 years working with children and families. (My long list of rather snazzy qualifications include a Degree in Childhood and Youth studies, an NNEB in Nursery nursing, and a Diploma in Childhood studies.) I write for parenting sites and magazines, and my bestselling book ‘The Baby Bedtime Book’ has been helping families to give their little ones the gift of happy sleep over the past few years.
The Regular Parent Project!
I was overwhelmed by the amount of messages and emails I had received over the past few months from worried parents who felt their lives were not ‘normal.’
So many feel they are ‘not enough’ when scrolling through ‘instagram perfect’ pics, so I decided to start this little project to show them (and you,) that every family is different, every child is different, and every parent is different.
That a regular parent – is a parent like you and like me, your life is ‘your kind of normal,’ and you shouldn’t compare it to others. I’m delighted that so many lovely parents have wanted to be involved and I can’t wait to share with you this wonderful series of podcasts.
‘The Regular Parent’ series, takes a look at parenting from the eyes of regular parents like you and me. Weekly podcast interviews with real ‘everyday’ parents and the everyday amazing things they do. So grab yourself a cuppa (or a glass of something nice,) curl up on the sofa and listen to our lovely, regular families share their lives.
From single parents holding down full time jobs and juggling it all, to parents who have little ones with disabilities – ‘The Regular Parent’ aims to bringing all parents together in this new series looking at the lives of regular parents, like you, from all around the world.
I look forward to sharing Regular Parent stories with you!
