Local mums invited to share their stories

Mothering ProjectBy Pippa Robinson

Local arts project ‘The Mother in the Mother’ launched its website on 8October with an event at Knowle West Media Centre.

Mothers from across Knowle West attended with their young children and took part in creative activities and discussions. The project explores how behaviours, values and other aspects of our human experience are passed down – or challenged – through the generations. Read the stories and upload your own at www.motherinthemother.co.uk.

We’re keen to hear from local mums who would like to share their stories. Was your mother present or absent as you were growing up? Do you think things were easier for mothers of your mum’s generation than they are today? Do you feel that the way you were brought up affects the way you mother your own children?

Why not write 150 words on ‘My mother, me, my children’ and send it to me, Pippa Robinson, by 18November.You can email  pippa.onestory@gmail.com or post it to Knowle West Media Centre, Leinster Avenue, BS4 1NL.  You could see your story published in the next edition of The Knowledge!
