Bad Behaviour

1x60 mins

It is the story of the last taboo - parents who admit to hating their child - and a record 4.5million people watched Fred and Diane's attempts to learn to love their out-of-control seven-year-old daughter.

As the couple follow Warwick Dyer's unique system of child behaviour management they are astonished to learn it's not her but they who are at the root of the problem.
