Mariella Frostrup and guests debate the complex realities of parenting in today's Britain

Raising kids is a tricky business. We all want to do the best for our little darlings, but what exactly is 'best'? As the parenting wars escalate, and politicians and childcare gurus lock horns over the right way to bring up our children, Mariella Frostrup provides some much-needed perspective.

In these 11 episodes from the long-running BBC radio show Bringing Up Britain, she explores the dilemmas of 21st Century parenting, talking to ordinary families and a panel of guest experts to try and make sense of some big parenting questions. Can you boost your child's IQ? How do we help children feel happy? What's the best way to break bad news? And why is it so difficult to talk to kids about sex?

Whether you're looking for an alternative to yelling at children to get them to do what you want, wondering how to teach them about the value of money or battling with them over their bedrooms, help is here. From dealing with anxiety and aggression to helping kids make friends and become independent, Mariella and her guests have got the topic covered, offering advice, insight and a range of diverse views to guide you through the parenting labyrinth.

Presented by Mariella Frostrup
