Eamonn Holmes Drive Time on talkRADIO

There’s a lots of talk about on my Parenting Round Up on The Eamonn Holmes Drive Time Show on talkRADIO today at 4.30.

The new Report out by The Children’s Commissioner Report suggesting that children growing up in the north ‘face the double whammy’ of poverty and bad schools.

There’s also this related story that’s come out in the BBC today about the damaging influence of grammar schools

As well as the Nappy Sacks story, there was this really interesting opinion piece about feelings of jealousy that mother’s might feel for their youthful daughters and that it shouldn’t be shameful to feel that way.

It’s NOT vain or superficial to mourn the loss of your power to turn heads: Midlife invisibility stings whatever the feminists say, admits 46-year-old ANNABEL COLE as she passes on the beauty baton to her two teenage daughters

It’s also Autism Awareness Week this week so we’ll have a quick chat over the phone with Dan Morgan – a YouTuber with Asperger’s  for a few minutes up until 5 – so it would be great if you could give us a parents perspective on that?

Also I wrote about the damaging effects of shaming children on social media by their parents as I was filmed for ‘The Sun’ newspaper for their campaign around stopping this damaging trend.
