A mum recently made headlines when she lost custody of her children after the judge accused her of giving them too much freedom. But mum of two Bea Marshall has taken on a new form of parenting called 'Yes Parenting' and insists there's nothing wrong with letting her children do what they want and claims it makes them more confident.
She joins us today along with Dr Ellie Cannon, author of The New Mum's Manual, who says children need boundaries.
