Are you a default parent who ends up doing everything?

It's something that actress Laura Patch, who plays the titular character, can understand especially juggling her own career and three young children. "I'm lucky, my husband is self-employed and we parent together. Which is really cool. It's still working especially when it's creative. And you've still got to do everything and give them [the children] a 100 per cent. It's tough."
