    Should grown-ups lie to you?

    Should grown-ups lie to you?

    Molly has never been afraid of getting a needle because she knows the Needle Ninja will reward her bravery with a basket of Japanese lollies, cakes and toys. Carl has never heard of this person and thinks Molly has been tricked by her mum and dad. But is there any harm in believing in the Needle Ninja? And is it OK for parents to tell their kids stories if it makes them feel better?

    Do you want to become a vampire?

    Do you want to become a vampire?

    Would you like to live forever? Molly and Carl like the idea of being immortal. The upsides: you wonโ€™t ever die, youโ€™ll never run out of time to try new things and meet new people. The downsides: drinking blood and sleeping in a coffin, and your non-vampire friends will all leave you when they die. So, would immortality be worth it? And how can you make a decision about something so hugely different from any experience youโ€™ve ever had before?

    Why is your room so messy?

    Why is your room so messy?

    We visit the bedroom of one of the messiest kids we know, Harriet. She hates cleaning her room more than anything in life and it always looks like someone opened every drawer and threw all the contents into the air. But is it her fault that her room is a pigsty? And if other kids can manage to keep their rooms tidy, why canโ€™t Harriet?ย ย ย

    Do you have to forgive someone who says sorry?

    If someone does or says something bad to you, but then apologises for it, should you forgive them no matter what? Even if you don't really feel it in your heart?

    Is a child's life more valuable than an adult's?

    Is a child's life more valuable than an adult's?

    The Titanic cruise ship hit an iceberg in 1912 and sank to the bottom of the ocean. Lots of people died because there weren't enough life rafts for everyone. Women and children were offered seats on the lifeboats first because of their age and gender. But is that fair? Are the lives of kids more precious than the lives of adults?

    Guest: David Dyer, author of The Midnight Watch.
