    Puberty is starting earlier - are you prepared?

    Puberty is starting earlier - are you prepared?

    Most parenting books talk about puberty starting from age 10, with periods starting from age 12. They’re nice neat numbers for parents to remember and plan for.
    But the reality is, everything is starting earlier for our girls. So how do you get prepared? 
    Plus, what the hell is in the chicken nuggets we are feeding our kids, it's less chicken than you might imagine.

Izzyaus ,

Please keep the Gen Z vs Millenials segment!

Pointing out what Gen Z are doing wrong was sooooooo good. I recently googled why Gen z are obsessed with the 90s and the answer was “nostalgia regarding a more simple, less digital time”…………. Then why do they post themselves dressed in 90s gear using digital media?

Banks eggs ,

Not Producer Nina ,

Wow

Producer Nina seems great.
