Penelope Leach, child psychologist and parenting expert has caused something of a stir by claiming that overnight stays with fathers for children under the age of five are damaging to these babies.

The controversial claim has caused a tangible backlash amongst fathers and fathers rights groups, which has seen this news item go viral and has garnered interest in the national media as a result.

One such media outlet is the BBC, who are keen to have a debate on this issue. BBC Three Counties Radio contacted Researching Reform this morning and invited us to talk about why we agree with Penelope, on the JVS Show. The interview is scheduled for tomorrow (Tuesday) at around 10.15am, where we will be chatting with the show’s producer, Jonathan Vernon-Smith and other guests invited to talk about the issues surrounding the claim.

We hope you’ll tune in, and if there’s a chance to phone up, why not call in and share your thoughts?
