Parental Control, Ep 42: How To Make New Friends, Manage Old Friendships And Know When To Say ‘Goodbye’

My Baba’s Editor Ellie Thompson welcomes life coach and boundary expert Michelle Elman to the show to talk about making new mum friends at the school gate. Ellie quizzes Michelle on what it is about the school run so many mums find terrifying, when to ignore, and when to say ‘no’, and how to find peace outside of the cliques.

Michelle discusses whether we should be tolerating jealousy in any of our friendships, as well as her thoughts on friendship break-ups, and why they are just as important as relationship break-ups. Are you wondering when is it time to say ‘goodbye’ to a friendship? We find out.
