Parental radio support

On the swedish radio channel P4, they feature a program called “Knattetimmen” (roughly translated “toddler time” (thanks Kim :-)).

The program idea is very simple – parents phone in or send email with questions about parenting, child development, how to talk to children about difficult things such as death, separation etc. Well, the list goes on and on. These questions are then answered by a midwife and a child psychologist in a very supporting and pedagogical manner and often with a smile.

I’m totally hooked on this show. I love to hear how engaged parents are, how they want to do the right thing, listen to their worries and queries and to recognise some of my own issues and wonders.

Not seldom do I find myself crying, because of the lovely stories parents have about their children, because of the sad stories and mostly because children are so damn intuitive and smart.  Strongly recommend this show!
