...Every one stops to watch Tracy Beaker Returns. We don't generally watch much tv after school but It's lovely and calm actually, with all 8 children engrossed (and 1 childminder!)

Are there any other 'unconventional' rituals at other minders settings?

What age is it suitable for?

All my clan range from 5 - 13. It's CBBC so I'd say school age. They go totally crazy for it! Tonights ep prompted an interesting discussion on autism. Although I ended up with a sulky 7 year old coz he was collected early.

I used to put Countdown on as soon a we were in from school. Everyone had paper and the words made, was age dependant!

Obviously, this was on one of my schoolies only days!
