BBC’s The Woman’s Hour with Jenni Murray – Christie Mellor Interview
Child-centred families 28 June 2005
Are we too indulgent?
We’ve come a long way since the days when children were seen and not heard, but have we come too far?
Do parents’ lives now revolve around their children – entertaining them, ferrying them from violin lesson to gym class, and forsaking evenings spent in the company of other adults? Or is the so-called ‘child-centred family’ no bad thing?
Jenni is joined by Christie Mellor, author of “We Were Here First, Kid*” and by Cassandra Jardine, author of “How To Be a Better Parent” and “Positive Not Pushy”.
* British publisher’s rename of “The Three-Martini Playdate”
