Chan­nel 4, 8pm AP­PAR­ENTLY we are all he­li­copter par­ents – anx­iously hov­er­ing near our kids at all times, al­ways ready to tell them to stop do­ing some­thing that might be an­noy­ing, dan­ger­ous or just stupid.

So this se­ries, which watches to see if kids can be­come more in­de­pen­dent if par­ents leave them alone for a while, has been quite eye-open­ing.

In this fi­nal episode, sin­gle mother Ali­son wants to see if leav­ing her four daugh­ters for a long week­end will make them more self-suf­fi­cient. Anya, the el­dest at 15, ad­mits she’s not very re­spon­si­ble and is of­ten in “dream world”. There’s also 13-year-old Freya, and Isla, eight, and Evie, aged 10.

Ali­son is about to spend the long­est time apart from her girls. Can she stop wor­ry­ing and will the sis­ters cope?
