Mums Half Hour: Join Us Live

In the first of our monthly series, Tamzin Outhwaite and our panel of mums discuss school holidays and child supervision

Show date: 10th June 2011

Show time: 13:30

Whether it’s feeding your children the right food, dressing them in the latest fashions or ensuring academic brilliance, how much pressure do you feel today as a modern parent?

From birthday parties and fashionable clothing to getting our children into the right schools, we are forever feeling the competitive shadow of fellow parents. Being a working parent doesn’t make things any easier, especially during the holidays and many of us will know about the incurred guilt and many challenges faced by having to entertain your kids for six weeks.


Yet are we becoming too worried about our children’s actions, their safety and how we look to other parents?  How cautious are we being in comparison to what our own parents permitted when we were younger?


A study by Start-rite shoes asked parents a number of questions on what they were allowed to do as youngsters in comparison to what they allow their own children to do with startling results.


These results along with the day care debate, tips on what to do with your kids during the holidays, and how independent you can allow your children to be will all be up for discussion in our show.


In this live and interactive webTV show, Tamzin Outhwaite and our panel will also be taking your questions and thoughts so if you have something to say, they want to hear it!


Tamzin Outhwaite and our panel join us live online at on 10th June at 13.30 to discuss the pressures of modern parenting.
