Do parents worry more than ever? Is the 24 hour news cycle creating a generation of stressed-out, over-protective helicopter parents?
Social researcher and author Dr Rebecca Huntley explores the anxieties facing modern parents and carers in Where Parents Fear To Tread, a podcast by Kinderling Kids Radio.
Are the “helicopters” justified? Or has the media blown the dangers facing families out of proportion?
Talking to specialists and academics, this series aims to give real perspective on parental fears – and whether we should be stressing less.
