Mark & Nadia talk about the joys and horrors of loving or loathing your chikldren's boyfriends or girlfriends. Should we as parents actually tell our kids when we sense a partner is a bad egg? What happens when we love them as if they’re our own and then they split up? Is it ever right to maintain contact with your children’s exes? The heartbreak of losing them - the fear of hating them - when is it okay to tell your kids what you really think of their choice in partners? It’s a hornets nest of positives and negatives - a complicated minefield - if you hate them should you keep your enemies close and say nothing? Or do you take the bad uns aside and have a little word in their ears?! Our kids and their partners is today’s thorny subject!
