Superb help and advice on parenting

The team on this show are brilliant. They cover so many sibjects for parenting that you wouldn't even consider. Well worth a listen anytime. All subjects are handled with sensitivity, and they get advice and thoughts from experts around the world, as well as parents and practicioners.

Also Relevant For Grandparents

I am a grandmother from Devon and was looking for a podcast about parenting as I want to play as full and active part in my granchildren's lives as possible. This podcast is really useful and covers many relevant topics such as bullying and autism.

I'm not sure if the programme makers intended this to be useful for grandparents as well but I heartily endorse it - well done!
