I am Jen Walshaw, mum to two boys 14 months apart in age, who are currently 12 and 13. We live in the North East of England and my home is never quiet, which is why my mum named it The Mad House and it stuck.
I am passionate about raising creative children whilst instilling them with skills that will last a lifetime, which can be quite a challenge in this digital age!
I am passionate about crafting and cooking, and can often be found in the kitchen teaching the boys (aged 12 and 13) to make pizza dough, or making homemade gifts for family and friends. When not up to my eyes in flour or paint, I can be found writing about family life.
My parenting style seems to be either all or nothing, there is no parenting middle ground here, but that also means that there is no right or wrong way to parent, just the best way for your family.
What you will find here is crafting, art, cooking with kids, realistic parenting tips and screen-free activities
We show you that boys can craft, cook and be creative, as well as play sports. In fact, we aim to show you that whatever girls can do, so can boys and vise versa.
