Helping little minds thrive

Nurture & bloom this Mother's Day...

Mum and I 1

In some ways nothing embodies the term 'nurture' more than parents themselves. Nourishing their little ones with unconditional love, care and understanding for years, then watching in awe as their little one steadily grows and blooms into their own little self.

This Mother’s Day I’ve been reflecting on the ways my mother nurtured who I have become today.  From as early as I can remember my mum encouraged my brother and I to see the wonder in everything – a talent that made her such an impactful teacher too. Every country walk, holiday excursion or even trip down the road was a learning opportunity. And I see her again, years later, playing this same role with my little one, Dot.  Helping her grow and thrive at every possible opportunity. 

In this way my mum nurtured the sense of curiosity and wonder that drove me into science in the first place, and played a huge role in who I have become – and still becoming. (She also gave me her cheek bones, for which I will be forever grateful!)

How did your mother help you bloom?  Whether it’s the way you cook your signature bolognese, your outlook on life or the way you nurture your own little ones, we want to hear about it!
