Bringing up Britain

If you haven't come across Mariella Frostrup's brilliant Radio 4 programme 'Bringing up Britain', it's well worth visiting BBC Sounds to listen to some past episodes. The show, which examines some of the knotty issues about raising a child in today's world, is just completing its 12th series and has been broadcast since 2008. Frostrup, helped by panellists from the world of education, health and academia, addresses issues like parenting in a digital age, how to nurture critical thinking in chidlren and promoting manners and discipline. Acting as the perfect devil's advocate, Frostrup manages to get the most out of her guests, provoking in-depth discussions that ultimately offer sane and practical ideas for tackling what can feel like overwhelmingly difficult issues.
