001: CHLOE MAXWELL – THE AUTHER OF “LIVING WITH MAX”
The ultimate slashy, is Chloe Maxwell. An author/model/tv personality/radio personality/founder of a charity/wife of footy player Matt Rogers… and the list goes on. Yet, in the midst of the glitz and the glamour, we hear Chloe in this podcast express the struggle of a mum feeling that her son, “looked like he wanted to kill me”. Her unexpected journey as a parent led to the book, “Living With Max”, a book that has caused her to receive backlash from some, whilst providing comfort for others. Also founding ASD4Kids, Chloe now works to help families facing the same struggle she and Matt experienced with their first child together Max.
We also explore public tantrums and the different personalities displayed by children at their Christmas Concerts.
The Bible was a game changer for Chloe. For our day and age “The Anatomy of Peace” by the Arbinger Institute is relevant for handling all types of conflict.
“Education is important, but riding your bike is importanter”
