Arrested for leaving my child in the car

It is a dilemma faced by every parent, but Tim Haines' decision to leave his toddler in the car while he popped into a shop almost cost him his family.

Tim, a family law advocate, could never have imagined the nightmare that was to follow as he dashed into a store without his daughter, Iset, two, to buy some medication when she was ill.

Five minutes later he was arrested and subsequently charged with 'wilful exposure to a child at risk of harm'.

With family life at risk, Tim appealed and was eventually cleared the following year. But was leaving his sick child alone so not to disturb her really neglectful or was he just doing what every other parent would have done?

Tim and his wife Julie join to tell us their story.

My husband didn't live up to my fantasy man

Ever since Fifty Shades of Grey stirred the loins of bored women up and down the country, there's been a surge in the amount of so-called mummy porn on the nation's bookshelves and iReaders. Behind the renaissance in erotica are an army of liberal-thinking women including author Jodi Ellen Malpas.

Jodi has sold over 500,000 copies of her sexy novels but it seems her own love life doesn't compare to her fantasies. The erotica writer's marriage ended after she published her fantasy trilogy This Man, and she's here to tell us why every woman needs a fantasy lover to spice up the reality of real life.
