About Larger Family Life




Larger Family Life was created in 2008 to offer an insight on life in a large family, and is also the personal site of Tania and Mike Sullivan and their 13 children. They write, they film, they travel.

It is now the UK’s biggest resource website for large families. The site covers a range of topics from parenting, home, food and travel. Larger Family Life receives over 120,000 global page views a month, has over 9,000 Facebook followers, more than 5,300 Twitter followers, and over 114,000 email subscribers.

Tania and her husband Michael have 13 children ranging from 22-years-old down to their latest addition born in February 2014 – with ten of the children being 12-years-old and under!

The Sullivans are a home-working, home-educating, travel-loving family. Together Tania and Mike run their own business and their flexibility means that they can work anywhere, any time, leaving them able to travel the world at short notice or for lengthy periods… and they do! 2015 will see them travelling to Germany and returning to Italy for six weeks to explore and interview artisan food producers. Look out for the YouTube documentary this summer. With both visual and written media reaching their audience there is a wealth of opportunity available for promotion. Want to arrange a press trip? Get in touch.

The Sullivan family hope to undertake a complete change of lifestyle in 2015 with a house move that will enable them to finally achieve their long-held dream of leaving the UK and downshifting to a lifestyle of mortgage-free self-sufficiency in the country. They look forward to raising their own animals for meat, growing their own food and using their existing handy skills (and learning more!). They will be sharing their journey on the site as they go, so look out for lots of new recipes too! Fingers crossed it won’t be long now!

They are often approached by the media for information and opinions on parenting and family matters.  Tania has participated in several television and radio debates including Daybreak, Channel 5 News, This Morning and more, speaking out on issues which affect families and family life today. Tania writes for parenting, lifestyle and travel topics for publications both on and offline, while also currently studying for her BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics.

The Sullivan family and the website have been mentioned in several nationwide publications including many local newspapers and television channels, The Telegraph, The Sun, The Star, That’s Life!, Mother and Baby and Practical Parenting and Birth magazines.  It has also reached several worldwide news websites.  The Sullivan family was also featured in the series ’15 Kids and Counting’ in 2012, and ’16 Kids and Counting’ in 2013. You can also subscribe to their new YouTube channel here.
