Are you fed up of tantrums, picky eaters, non-sleepers and potty-training nightmares? Channel 5 is on the hunt for badly behaved toddlers to star in its new TV show.

A new poll carried out by YouGov has revealed that nearly half of all British parents have been embarrassed by their toddler's behaviour when out in public.

Channel 5 have signed up child behaviour expert and private nanny Laura Amies who is on a mission to help struggling parents regain control and restore harmony to the homes of East Anglia.

Laura will take on any issues and promises to give parents the tools to take back control of their children.

Laura - who for the past seven years has worked as a private nanny in households in London - has qualifications in child psychology and development and started her career in nurseries and schools before moving into one-on-one care.

Laura feels in this age of technology children are being deprived of the ability to become independent, confident learners and need to be encouraged to express their feelings and emotions but need firm parameters in order to thrive.

She said: "I believe a child should never be written off as being inherently naughty, there's always a way to positively affect a child's behaviour. In today's modern world, parents can be led to believe that certain behaviours arise due to the fact that their child's nutritional, emotional or even spiritual needs aren't being met - when actually, a good dollop of common sense is often the best approach.
