As the parenting wars escalate and politicians and childcare gurus lock horns over how best to raise our children, Mariella Frostrup and her guests debate the dilemmas of modern parenting. Issues up for discussion in this third series of Radio 4's parenting programme, include the experience of growing up an only child, how best to break bad news and the hard choices at the heart of the care system. As they explore the theory of twenty-first century parenting - and the rather messier practice - Mariella and her guests share advice and some very different views on how best to bring up our next generation.

producer: Julia Johnson.
