Being a parent and step-parent isn't easy at times and Feilding comedian Ben 'Tito' Caldwell knows that all too well.

His unique journey into parenthood has left him with plenty of hilarious stories and observations, as well as some questionable advice to pass on.

"While we learned his deepest, darkest secrets, we also learned that humour can indeed be the best medicine... Despite the brutal honesty, he was funny, warm and engaging throughout" - Echoes from the Wings
