Help for parents of children with Down Syndrome, Let’s play at Bernards Heath and what is Parental Alienation?

Rayden Solicitors sponsors The Parents’ Show

In this week’s show, Neil meets Michelle Bolton, one of the founders of DS Achieve, a charity formed to help empower families and professionals to enable children and young people with Down Syndrome to fulfil their potential. Michelle’s son Tom was born with DS, and she speaks openly about how Tom’s diagnosis has changed them and their life for the better.

Michelle is passionate about working with parents of children with DS to help children develop and learn, and ensuring children and young people have an opportunity equal to their peers to take part in all aspects of life. It’s a heartwarming interview, well worth a listen.

Next, Lydia joins Jodie Moore from our sponsors Rayden Solicitors to discuss Parental Alienation – what is it, how does it manifest itself and what can be done within families to manage it?

Finally, Lydia speaks to David Pearce of Let’s Play at Bernards Heath about the funding progress for new play equipment on the heath.

(Did you know that Bernards Heath is the site of the second battle of St Albans in the Wars of the Roses, in 1461?)

That’s this Thursday at 7pm on 92.6FM, online at and on your smartspeaker.

The Parents Show is sponsored by Rayden Solicitors.
