‘Wrap them in cotton wool!’ GMB debate erupts as guest blasts ‘snowflake’ parents

Ranvir Singh and Adil Ray were on hand to front Wednesday’s edition of Good Morning Britain and the stand-in hosts had plenty to get through during the show. And one segment to get ITV viewers everywhere talking was when a heated debate arose over who was to blame for the “snowflake” generation and whether responsibility lies with the parents of younger people. 

To debate the topic, Ranvir and Adil welcomed broadcaster Marina Fogle and co-founder of Black Mums Up Front, Carina White to discuss.

And it’s safe to say Marina was firm in her stance that children and the younger generation are too pandered to in recent years.

“It’s easy to wrap our children in cotton wool because we don;’t want to see them struggle,” Marina said to Ranvir and Adil.

She continued: “We don’t like seeing them fail but we sometimes lose sight of the fact that resilience is built through failing, it’s built through adversity.”
