Show Notes

Parents in the Know is a podcast featuring interviews of parents who are brave and honest enough to share the good, the bad and the ugly about their parenting journeys. We’ll explore the mistakes and assumptions they’ve made, but also take the time to celebrate the parts of being a parent that they got absolutely right, and are justifiably proud of. Join us!

Whatever stage of the parenting journey you’re on, whether you’ve had an awesome day with the kids or whether you’re wondering where to hide the bodies, we’re here to show you you’re not alone. I’m Emily M Morgan, welcome to Parents in the Know, and today’s amazing parent is Karen Chaston.

Karen’s parenting story runs the gamut from becoming pregnant at the age of 16 and adopting her daughter out, to having three boys in her twenties, one of whom sadly passed away.

She was a career woman while her husband ran the house as a stay-at-home-dad and has learned through experience and trial and error how to live with gratitude, calmness and clarity. She looks forward to the arrival of grandchildren, with whom she can use all the lessons she’s learned to be the best grandparent and carer she can be.

Please support Karen by leaving a supportive and respectful comment at www.parentsintheknow.com.au. You can also support her by visiting her website www.karenchaston.com.au and checking out her business on Inspiring Women to Empower Themselves. Take care, and I’ll see YOU next week with another amazing and inspiring parent.

Will next week’s parent be YOU? Do you dare to share the ups and downs of your own parenting journey and contribute to the knowledge and support that new (and old) parents need so badly? If so, contact us at info @ parentresourcecentre.com today!

  1. Hi Emily,
    I am expecting my first baby in a few days. Just wanted to drop you a note to say I’m loving the new format, every interviewee you have had so far has been an absolute gem, they are all obviously intelligent with lots of wise things to say and I’m enjoying listening and learning heaps. Thank you for all that you do!

    1. Hi Lori, thank you so much for your kind words – I’m so glad you’re enjoying our parent interviews! I’m sad to say I’m taking a step back from the podcast for a while now, as the listening numbers are just not where I need them to be to justify the expense of producing it. I would love to think I’ll continue the podcast in the future but in the meantime best of luck with your new baby! What an exciting time for you – I hope all goes smoothly!
