The Art of Parenting... Enough

Kerri Sackville, Daisy Turnbull

With helicopter parenting, gentle parenting, snowplow parenting and more, it’s easy to get confused by being a parent these days. How do we master the art of parenting… just enough to make everyone happy? Author of 50 Risks to Take With Your Kids, Daisy Turnbull, and Sunday Life columnist Kerri Sackville will engage in a fun and lively chat about raising small humans and being the best – if not most perfect – parent you can be.


Please note: Seating is unallocated. 

Bookseller BOOKFACE will be onsite to sell books, which can be signed by the authors after the event.
