Six-Year-Old Has Never Slept In Her Own Bed | Jo Frost: Extreme Parental Guidance | Real Families

  • Published on: 17 May 2017
  • Jo visits six-year-old Paige who has never slept a full night in her own bed;. with the number of obese 6-year-olds doubling over the last ten years, Jo works to discover the impact of calories and portion sizes on children's health.

    Being a parent is the most important journey of your life, but the trouble is no one gives you a map – until now. Jo Frost, Britain’s best known parenting expert, returns with a new series providing mums and dads with the honest, insightful, no-nonsense advice they need.

    Jo talks to Britain’s parents to find out which issues are really worrying them, whether it’s how many hours their children play computer games or how much exercise they’re getting. In each show she sets out to answer these most pressing of parental questions with a large-scale demonstration involving kids and parents, aiming to debunk myths and reveal crucial facts such as how much children should eat, how many hours of sleep they really need; and the truth about just how young girls are when they start to obsess about their bodies.

    In each programme Jo also meets two families suffering from severe versions of the kinds of problems everyone worries about, from a seven-year-old boy who only eats bread and butter to a ten year old so addicted to computer games he spends up to 80 hours a week at the screen.

    Is this an accurate depiction of young girls today? I spent my adolescent years in the early to mid 00's and this was not my experience. We did mess around a bit with makeup(lip gloss and sparkle gels that were in back that) and nail polish - but no one was wearing mascara or lipstick at 11 - never mind 7. I think it's OK to try lipstick and wear it around the house a bit at that age - but they shouldn't be wearing it on any sort of regular basis. I certainly cannot fathom taking an hour to get ready to go the park at the age of 7. That is madness and it's so unhealthy. The mother who is letting her 13 year old go out dressed as though she's a 21 year old club goer is...well, I'll be kind and say she naive and a push over. Even putting aside the potential for dangerous situations(which there is undoubtedly), what is it doing to her values and state of mental health? I don't mean in terms of purity or anything like that, but in terms of finding value in others and oneself outside of materialistic concerns. I remember being 13, I know I was a child. Even compared to my 16 or 17 year old self, I was very young. There's no way I'd have really had the foresight to appreciate what I was doing - if I was in this girl's position. This is what parents are bloody supposed to do, they are supposed to step in and not allow children to do things that are not good for them. This girl's mom - I'm sure she loves her daughter, but I do not understand parents who are so afraid of their child ever being angry with them. It is cowardly and it's a failing in their parental duties.

    The food thing is crazy. A child under the age of 10 needs to eat about as much as a grown woman. They grow and play! Feed them, just don't feed them garbage.

    In my school, even though we're only like, 13 or 14, the teachers are always saying to stop acting like children. One time I had a cup I was playing with after I had finished my work, and i drew a face on it, and my teacher told me to throw it out and stop being so childish. Honestly, it's the grownups who want us to grow up not our peers.

    My sister is 8, and she eats so much more than those portions. She is the slimmest child I know, and has an amazing body. If she ate that much, she would be starving. What you have to take into account is how active the child is also. My sister and I do lots of dancing, ride bikes, walk etc. I do agree that there are too many overweight children, but that portion is too small..

    I know none of us remember our births but we are suddenly pulled out of our mothers where we felt safe for nine months and into the big wide world. Not alone I know but probably something to think about. I'm 32 and am very anxious still about my mum

    Well done mom and grandma! Following trough and not feeling sorry for themselves and babying the girls. I hope other parents follow their example.

    It was hard for me to watch this. At that age, I had experienced sexual abuse, extreme trauma, had anxiety — and I have mild autism as well. I also had trouble sleeping alone at this age. This wouldve traumatized me. I know each child is different but it was just tough to see, because not all behavior from kids is simply a discipline issue :(

    I remember when I was young I has serious separation anxiety from my mum.Wouldn't matter if it was her trying to get me to sleep in my own bed, or dropping me off at school, or even taking me to a friend's house to play while she went out for the day. The fear I felt as she walked away was so strong that I could feel my throat closing as I cried for her; it was like my chest was being crushed so that I couldn't breath.I know that that's probably not what this girl has, but I can't help but think that many children are labeled 'naughty' or 'disruptive' when what they're really feeling is crushing fear and anxiety.
