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 are a pro-blogging, freelance-writing, home-educating, travel-loving, recipe-developing large family.

It is now the UK’s biggest resource website for large families , covering a range of topics covering family lifestyle, home, food and travel. Larger Family Life receives over 120,000 global page views a month, has over 9,600 Facebook followers, more than 15,000 Twitter followers, and over 114,000 email subscribers.

Tania and Mike have 13 children ranging from 22-years-old down to their latest addition born in February 2014 – with ten of the children being between 13-years-old and two.

The Sullivans are a pro-blogging, home-working, home-educating, travel-loving family. Together Tania and Mike run their digital marketing company. The children are also home-educated and the flexibility this offers means that they can work anywhere, any time, leaving them able to travel the world both at short notice or for lengthy periods… and they do! As members of the International Travel Writers Alliance and with both visual and written media reaching their audience there is a wealth of opportunity available for promotion for travel-related clients.

Following both her brother’s battle with leukaemia and the loss of their father in the same year, Tania has agreed to fulfil a promise to her brother that she will fill life with more adventure. She lost 50lbs in less than a year, working on getting fitter and stronger, and is now ready to fill life with challenges. From treks to mountain climbs to abseiling to horseriding, if you have a challenge, no matter where, let her know. Because life is for living. Even if you’re a mum-of-13.

They are often approached by the media.  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 travel, parenting and lifestyle 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 www.largerfamilylife.com have been featured 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.
