Anyone watching?

I loved the previous programs regarding different aged children, this seems to be about the same children and their siblings.

Be very interesting watching.

Am a nanny so get to see the sibling dynamic with/without parents present and it is different.

DanniiMinogue Wed 13-Jul-16 20:16:27

It's fab - I'm loving them all. I just lol at Taylor and his sister, very cute.

DanniiMinogue Wed 13-Jul-16 20:18:09

Iguess yes that's true. I was a au pair yrs ago (I realise it's not the same in terms of qualifications etc) but I can obviously appreciate your point.

I'm watching

Alfie and Daisy are so sweet smile

DanniiMinogue Wed 13-Jul-16 20:22:06

Tia grin

I, personally, would find Tia very hard work...!

Alfie is amazing!

DanniiMinogue Wed 13-Jul-16 20:38:15

Little Alfie is adorable and very mature it seems. I'm glad he's been reunited with Emily.

Love Alfie, Emily and Daisy.

It's a shame they haven't got any brother-brother siblings to see their interactions.

Mabel is my favourite.

The little sister of the lovely boy of the autistic spectrum is really noticing his disengagement compared to the other older siblings. She was hugging up to him while he was absolutely glowing about the lamb saying how cute it was. Really poignant.

hesterton Wed 13-Jul-16 20:54:21

Sorry on not of

Luckystar1 Wed 13-Jul-16 20:55:03

Yes Burn I'd have liked to see that too. I have a DS and and due DC2 in 2 weeks. We think it'll be a boy and it would've been nice to see that interaction.

hesterton Wed 13-Jul-16 21:00:00

They were generally really lovely to their sibs. I'm sure parents not being there made a huge difference.

BurnTheBlackSuit Wed 13-Jul-16 21:02:03

Looks like their might be brothers next week...

BurnTheBlackSuit Wed 13-Jul-16 21:03:55

And nothing to do with the programme, but did the announcer afterwards have a Welsh Jamacan accent- it was really nice but very different !

Gorgeous children. My kids he along mostly. It is my proudest achievement.

DanniiMinogue Wed 13-Jul-16 21:09:22

I was actually surprised how lovely they all were to their siblings, it was great. Also, as someone with siblings on the autistic spectrum, it was great to see Theo interacting with the others and so excited about the lambs.

Watching on +1. My two are 3.5 years apart they were BEST friends for the first 4 years but now (youngest is 5) they fight a lot BUT they'd defend each other to the death. They're boy then girl.

Alfie was such a kind little boy.

jay55 Thu 14-Jul-16 22:41:19

Alfie could have his own show.
I love how he wants to marry Emily so they can live in the same house. Quite remarkable how they've kept the friendship going.

nilbyname Thu 14-Jul-16 23:03:25

He's quite an exceptional little kid! We need more Alfie's in this world. But children learn what they see, I bet his parents are lovely.

The programme was so lovely- it would do your heart good to watch it ( with all the awful things happening in the world)
Alfie is such a lovely child and kind. His relationship with Emily was so sweet.
Is Tyler the boy on the lower end of the autistic spectrum? What a cutie.
He really engaged with the lamb feeding to the exclusion of his little sister. It's a little hard on his little sister- but she got emotional support from some of the other children.
Tia is a strong personality.
I loved Mabel and her sister.
They were all so cute.
Congratulations to the parents on their lovely children.

Another programme I liked, which you lot might enjoy, is B Is For Book.

It's a BBC documentary that was on BBC Four, and is available on catch up. It follows a group of primary school children as they learn to read.

Just thought I would mention it here in case anyone's interested. smile
