projects that empower mothers to overcome shared challenges and live the life they want
Tough Mother

"It got us talking in areas where we usually argue."

Tough Mother was born out of the belief that empathy for the mum’s role is often critical for family harmony and the only way to build this empathy is for dads to walk at least a weekend in the mums’ shoes.  So on the weekend before Mother’s Day each year, mums get the weekend off and dads get into teams to complete 30 obstacles that ensure they experience the full demands of the 24/7 mum.  The Challenge is on 1 May this year so recruit your partner here.
