Why Be you Logo.jpg


​Why Be You was founded by Youth Worker and Parent Educator Lucy Dahill to provide a resource for parents raising children and young people. 

Lucy has a Masters in a Public Health specialising in adolescent mental health. She is currently completing a PHD investigating the way Parents speak to Adolescents and associations with eating problems.

The site is also contributed to by experienced and qualified community workers. Each person is either a parent, works with parents, or works with children and young people. As such, they each bring to the project a perspective that considers the questions the are asked on a regular basis, or the behaviours they see are most prevalent in families today.


Explore blogs, interviews and audios, that each offer a valuable insight into the jigsaw puzzle that is parenting.
