Nought to Five

Add to Watchlist

Nought to Five is for all parents from all walks of life. It's an insiders' guide to parenting the under-fives. The ten episodes run in consecutive order from brand new baby through to almost-5-year-olds who're ready for school. Each episode features two families sharing their stories with a family counselor about everyday life – sleeping, eating, asserting independence, toilet training, non-compliance and so on. There's also one part dedicated to the all-important link between movement and learning. We talk about the specific activities which will grow children's brains so that they can attain their genetic potential.

Nought to Five Full Episode Guide

  • Psychologist Ruth Jillings meets Sophie, whose parents Sally and Sam are struggling with Sophie's whinging to get what she wants and fighting with her big brother. Plus she fusses over what she wears in the morning and is reluctant to eat at the table.
