Elliot Foxley author Stav Yiannoukas and Sky News journalist and author of Mother Zen, Jacinta Tynan join the Parent Panel this week.

Together with Shevonne Hunt they take on the hot topics of the week. From Jetstar charging an additional fee for flying with babies on laps, fidget spinners, controlled crying, and how to manage stressful moments with your kids.

Plus, every week Shevonne asks the panellists to reveal what lullabies they sing to their kids, or if they were sung to when they were little. This week both guests weren't shy about showing off their soothing, sweet, singing voices.
