Dr Susie O'Brien: The Secret of Half-Arsed Parenting

Saturday 24 April 2021

Join author, journalist and Doctor of Education Susie O’Brien as she discusses her new book, The Secret of half-arsed Parenting: Raising kids with half the guilt and twice the joy. 

Drawing on research into heightened anxiety in children and parents Susie suggests by doing half as much, you might just make everyone twice as happy. Dr Susie O'Brien will be joined in conversation with Claire Wenn for this in-person event at Richmond Theatrette. 

About the speakers: 
Dr Susie O'Brien is a journalist and columnist with a PhD in Education. For the last 19 years she has written about parenting and social issues for the Herald Sun and other newspapers, and she appears weekly on Channel Seven's Sunrise. She and her partner have five kids between them - they're the Brady Bunch, without Alice to cook dinner every night. Claire Wenn is a Balwyn North working mother-of-three and a successful real estate agent. Claire has three boys aged 19, 17 and 14 and over the years she’s made thousands of lunches, washed thousands of socks and made thousands of dinners. She loves her sons more than teenage boys love Lynx Africa body spray, but would love them to clean up after themselves once in a while...
