In our new series ‘The Frontline of Motherhood’ we’ll be sharing the stories of mothers who inspire us: women who’ve done great things or faced unimaginable challenges and come out fighting; women whose stories blast the wretched phrase ‘just a mum’ right out of the water.
Ban is a single mum. She told Charlotte how she escaped war-torn Iraq with her elderly mother and two young daughters and fled to Syria. Then, as Syria too was ravaged by war, she fled again.
October half-term is over and we are all back to the grind this week. How was it for you? Oh, you went on a little family getaway? How lovely. You must feel rested and refreshed. No? Sorry, I forgot, family holidays aren’t particularly restful are they? Rachel compares how holidays have changed since kids came along.
Lesley Currie is mum to five-year-old Leon and two-year-old Liberty. Neither child has ever been to school and Lesley plans to keep it that way. In this guest blog, she tells Still You why home educating is the right choice for her family.
