Anita talks Britain’s Best Parent

Before Britain’s Best Parents aired, Anita sat down with Channel 4 to speak about her time on the show.

Anita said one of the things that interested her was that it is such a divisive topic. She said:

It’s a subject matter we all have an opinion on, and I think people will really enjoy watching other people’s parenting styles. We’ve got some brilliant characters on there as well so it should make for a good national debate.

Anita also mentioned that she doesn’t believe there is a perfect parenting philosophy. When asked, she said: “No, I don’t think so. How can it? Everyone is just trying to figure it out and I think there are some brilliant, brilliant parents out there. Love is probably key, a lot of love.”
