The Parents' Show was launched in October 2010 by local parents from St Albans with the aim of providing parents or anyone who cares for kids with up-to-date information and resources on the issues that matter to them.

The show is broadcast every Thursday evening from 7-8pm. Each week, we select a theme, as suggested by one of our listeners, and each week we get a top expert in the studio responding to listener questions and concerns. We also discuss local resources available to parents.

We have regular contributors giving us what's on guides for children and families, restaurant reviews for child-friendly establishments and advice on green parenting. To date, the show a whole host of topics - for example - eating disorders in children, autism, imaginative play for young children, adoption, puberty, school selection, weaning and family finances.
