What does ‘true parenting’ look like? I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that in today’s day and age, there are huge amounts of pressure on mums to be ‘perfect’ and look ‘perfect’ while parenting. Particularly, the rise of social media and celebrity culture has note helped this notion. Daily, we are presented with ‘picture-perfect’ photos of mums like Kim Kardashian West, Miranda Kerr and Nicole Trufino, nurturing their bubs whilst looking amazing. What we don’t see is their make-up team of 10, endless re-touching and an army of nannies behind the scenes. No wonder so many of us feel inadequate at times with these images on display!
What we want to do is challenge this notion of the ‘perfect mum’ and support mums so they know it is perfectly okay (and normal!) when their child is misbehaving or they themselves are having a day where they just feel ‘blah’.
So, we want you guys to share some examples of true parenting. And to reward you, we’re going to give each and every one of you the chance to win an amazing Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera (there are three up for grabs – one per week), plus one overall winner will also score a family portrait package with a photographer in their area!

To get you warmed up, I would like to share with you a few examples of my ‘true parenting’ moments, including Scarlett (7 months) having a meltdown, Henry (5) pulling a rude face and me looking less than glam whilst attempting a selfie with bub.
Plus a video of Oscar (2) doing a usual ‘runner’ (this particular one captured on film – thankfully without the swearing!).
