Children and trauma, Charlotte Harris at Chelsea, Children of alcoholics, Tasha Eurich
How do you talk to children about terrorism? Hilary, the adult child of an alcoholic tells her story. Charlotte Harris at the Chelsea Flower Show, Tasha Eurich on self-awareness.
In the light of the Manchester attack how do we talk to children about what has happened? Nicky Cox, Editor of First News and Child Psychologist Dr Sunny Kleo join Jane to give advice to parents, grandparents and carers about how to talk to children of different ages about the things they will be seeing on TV or on social media. And, for younger children, are there useful tips for minimising and contextualising their distress?
Hilary's mother lost herself to alcohol and no one in the family ever talked about it, apart from Uncle David. He intervened and persuaded Hilary's mum to stop drinking while her daughter was doing her A levels. Reporter Jo Morris accompanied Hilary on a visit to see Uncle David, now 91, to hear her story of being the child of an alcoholic. The second in a series.
Charlotte Harris has won a gold medal for her first ever Show Garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show. One of only two women amongst the show garden designers on Main Avenue, she heads an all-female design team. Her garden is influenced by the forests and waterways of the Canadian Boreal, a vast breath-taking area of forested natural habitat, which stretches across Canada, Scandinavia and Siberia. Jane joins Charlotte in her show garden.
Dr Tasha Eurich is a psychologist and performance coach and she'll be speaking to Jane about her new book 'Insight' which focuses on the power of self-awareness. Are we damaging our children and ourselves with over-praising and unrealistic ideas about our own abilities?
