[LISTEN]Progressive parenting requires a village mentality says parenting expert

Creative parenting expert Nikki Bush chats about the importance of sparents, and what it means to be a progressive parent.

Sparents is a term that's trending on social media, and it refers to spare parents says Bush.

She adds that sparents are extra people we can invite into our kids lives to help raise them.

We know that things are changing in the world of parenting because we live in this fast-paced world says Bush.

She adds that the Marketing Manager from Unilever South Africa made an interesting comment.

He said that we can no longer look at modern parenting through a binary lens she adds.

The Gogo may be taking the place of the mom and dad says Bush.

We have many so many different scenarios where mothers are deciding to go at it alone.
