Yesterday I attended the NSPCC conference, which was an absolutely fantastic opportunity for me.
The reason for my attendance is because the girls from Young, a mum and proud were presenting their film to the attendees.
I can tell you know, I have seen the film at least 4 times now, and I still get goosebumps, I still have to stop myself from crying. I can’t say how much it affects me, and I’m not even a mum.
I have so much respect from Adele, Lauren and Kerri, they have really done something amazing with their lives, regardless of what the media may say about young mums you can tell that these three girls dote on their children.
Once again the film got a fantastic reaction, and even thought there were a few tears the girls did amazing, even managing to answer a question asked by the audience.

So today us Young Mums (me and Lauren) went and took part in a workshop at the NSPCC Conference. We weren’t as scared as we have been but we were still pretty nervous – You’d have thought we would have got the hang of it now, we’ve done it that many times!! But never mind.. WE SMASHED IT AGAIN!! After our talk/film showing there was question and answer time in which we only got asked 1 question (glad about it!) which was easy to understand and easy to answer!! There were 2 important fellas from the NSPCC at the front with us and they were answering alot of questions! Afterwards when people were leaving, we were packing up and getting ready to go when a few people came up to us congratulating us with our workshop and a few people mentioned that they had seen us at the No Wrong Doors Conference. Two girls from the audience then come over and asked us a few more questions which me and Lauren were more than happy to answer! Then Chris and Pasco (the important fellas) come over and had a chat with us. Just a shame Kerri wasn’t there but we smashed it Lauren 🙂
