BBC documentary looking for inspirational parents with disability

Recommended Posts

We are looking for inspirational role-model parents to take part in our ongoing documentary for the BBC about parenting teenagers. We would love to find a family where one or both parents are disabled and where they have at least one child aged 14-19. If you know of anyone who fits the bill I would be very grateful if you could forward this information on to them.

The programme consists of sending two difficult British teenagers to stay with a family oversees for a week. By living in a disciplined yet loving environment, the hope is that these kids will have experiences that force them to look at their own lives, and so make positive changes that could last a lifetime.

Some of the families we have previously filmed with include a Police Chief in Oaklahoma, a Mormon family in Utah, and a Pastor from Texas. In order to get a full picture of different types of parenting techniques, and fairly represent all groups, the BBC would like us to find families where the family is living with a disability.

We are looking for families who have at least one child aged 14-19, who are proud of their strong parenting and family values and who would be willing to accommodate two British teenagers for one week in April or May and instil in them the values and morality they demand of their own children. The British teens will be expected to attend school, complete homework and help with household chores; they will not be guests in the house but new members of the family.

We are on quite a tight deadline and would love to find interested families by the end of this week.

Many thanks in advance for you help
