Part Two

Duration:
25 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 05 November 2013

Madeleine Morris set out to discover two vastly different approaches to caring for children, as found in Fiji and China, and the social politics and emotions that go with them.

In the second of two programmes investigating alternative childcare, Madeleine travels to China with her daughter Scarlett and visits a boarding school where children as young as two are educated away from their parents. Along the way they ask what our childcare choices say about our values as a society, and what we might learn from others.
