Manners and Discipline

Episode 3 of 3

Mariella Frostrup and guests explore the importance of good manners and discipline in young children and the best ways for parents to tackle bad behaviour.

How important are good manners and discipline in young children? Mariella and her guests debate the best methods of tackling bad behaviour when children test boundaries. They discuss whether giving them rewards, banishing them to the naughty step, or "love bombing" works best.

Do children learn from their parents or act up due to the food they eat, too much screen time, their genetics or gender?

Mariella is joined by Oliver James, clinical psychologist, Penny Palmano, best-selling author on good manners, Stephen Scott, Professor of Child Health and Behaviour at Kings College London and Bonamy Oliver, Head of the Nurture Lab at the University of Sussex.
