A while ago I wrote about Naked Beans Night – the family tradition I started by accident when my children were babies. Recently I was invited to share my tale with the listeners of CBC Radio, Canada’s national public broadcaster, as a guest on a programme about the lessons children learn by accident.
I duly ensconced myself in a sound-proofed broom cupboard at BBC Oxford to record the segment, only slightly put off my stride by the BBC van which had reversed into my car just minutes earlier.
All DNTO episodes are available as podcasts on the station website, or as free podcast downloads from iTunes. The Accidental Parenting episode is packed with stories from parents and children, interspersed with a great play list. To hear my segment of the show, press play below.
