Oh hey everyone - it's Zeena Moolla! She's here to tell us all about her fab book, Everything I’ve Learned About Motherhood: From My Single-Parent Dad.

Zeena shares what it was like to be raised by her father, an Indian Muslim man, and why she thinks single parenthood can bring families closer together. We hear how she coped with racist jokes as a child, and what it was like to tell her Dad about the experience as an adult. We discuss the time Nigel Farage made her son cry, and what we think of him. Yep, expect some very strong language.

There's also a bit of chat about how and why Zeena became a mum blogger, and her advice for managing the negative aspects of Instagram. Plus, she shares her number one tip for new mums. 

Zeena's ace book is out now. For more from her go to wordtothemothers.com.
