Parents Under Pressure

Sophie Raworth travels across Britain to find out why parents seem to be bringing up a generation of kids who are unhappier, unhealthier and more unruly than they've ever been.

Sophie Raworth travels across Britain to find out why parents seem to be bringing up a generation of kids who are unhappier, unhealthier and more unruly than they've ever been. Armed with the latest research into childhood, she meets mothers who find it hard to give their babies the love and attention they need; parents worried about the effect of leaving their children in nursery care for long periods; and young people who've been affected by parents who are in conflict, who work very long hours or who have split up. She also talks to childcare experts whose research is throwing new light on what's going wrong - and how we can make things better.
