Parenting is already incredibly challenging but imagine when those challenges are multiplied by 2, 3, or more!

Multiple births are more common than ever, as more couples are having babies later in life or turning to fertility treatments, and on Parenting Today we’re exploring the world of multiples, and all the unique challenges and concerns of welcoming more than one baby into the family.

Sally Mousa is joined in the studio by panel experts Dr Rose Logan, Clinical Psychologist, Parenting Expert & Head of Early Years Practice at The LightHouse Arabia, as well as author and mother-of-four, Taghred Chandab.

For the second hour, our expert panel will be joined by international parenting expert Dr Shefali Tsabary, author of several New York Times best sellers including ‘The Conscious Parent’, ‘Out of Control’ and ‘The Awakened Family’. Dr Shefali is a Columbia University-trained clinical psychologist. Originally from India, she is considered a forerunner in the world of mindfulness and conscious parenting. U.S. television personality Oprah Winfrey has called Dr Shefali’s debut book, ‘The Conscious Parent’ “one of the most profound books on parenting she has ever read”.

Sally Mousa is joined in the studio for Parenting Today by Head of Occupational Therapy at Autism Rocks Support Centre Adam Griffin, Dr. Saliha Afridi, PsyD (US) Clinical Psychologist and Managing Director of Lighthouse Arabia, and Linda Bonnar, Life Coach and Author of Press Play. The panel on Parenting Today are discussing teens, and how to understand, support, nurture and help them through the tricky developmental years that are often a roller coaster ride that is not learnt over night!
