Well, this doesn’t happen very often…I’ve been inspired to create a new Pyjama Drama character after meeting a very inspirational woman this week - Sue Atkins, The Parenting Expert.

Sue and I met up via cyber space to get to know more about each other’s businesses, to discuss dogs, politics, hairdressers, families – oh and MyCPDGroup! We’re both using the fabulous platform to host our courses.

Pyjama Drama have been partners with Graham and the team at MyCPD for a couple of years now, and Sue is in the middle of creating her first content for the platform – though by no means her first course! If you don’t know, Sue has been in the business of education for some 18 years now as a parenting coach and teacher. She’s the Parenting Expert for ITV’s This Morning, BBC Radio, Disney Junior, Good Morning Britain, and India’s Education & Parenting World magazine – I have to say, I felt a little starstruck…that is until the moment we began chatting, because Sue is nothing if not warm, down-to-earth, funny, and open. And her passion for helping parents create happy childhoods comes through in bucket loads.

As we at Pyjama Drama HQ look ahead to launching our own parents’ course in the next couple of weeks, we’re delighted that Sue will be coming along to one of the sessions and acting as a critical friend to us – with her wealth of knowledge and experience as a parenting coach, who better!?

You can find out more about Sue and her incredible work here - and if you're not familiar with her, see how close you think I've managed to get a resemblence! ;)

You can register your interest in our parenting course and be the first to find out about it when it launches here.
