Would you leave a four year old at home alone?

Lack of childcare during school holidays is costing Britain's economy almost £100 million a year, The Family and Childcare Trust has said.

  • More than a third of parents struggle to find affordable childcare during the summer break

According to the organisation, taking sick days or giving up work altogether are the only options for some parents during their children's six week summer break. Experts say a combination of unaffordable prices, lack of holiday childcare and inflexible employers is not only causing stress for parents, but also has a knock on effect for UK businesses and the economy.

  • Thirty-four per cent admitted to leaving children aged between four and 16 at home

Working mum Shona Sibary says she leaves her four-year-old daughter at home alone, but Emma B feels differently. Watch the debate to find out who you agree with.

We want to hear your stories about childcare problems over the summer holidays. Have you ever been forced to leave your children home alone?

  • Nearly a fifth said they consider it safe to leave a child under nine years old at home unsupervised

Would you choose the sex of your baby?

British couples are heading to the US in order to choose the sex of their child, a practice which is currently illegal in the UK - according to fertility specialist, Dr. Daniel Potter. It's development of IVF - the embryos are tested to see what gender they are before being implanted.

Dr. Potter, who runs the largest fertility clinic on the West Coast of America, has seen visits from UK women rise by 20% this year. In total, 750 babies have been born to UK mothers since Dr. Potter began practicing in 1997 and he has been responsible for around 3,500 births globally, with patients travelling from all 50 US states and 74 countries.
