A controversial Channel 4 show teaching parents how to train their children like dogs has sparked outrage among campaigners.
'Train Your Baby Like a Dog' sees dog trainer and animal behaviourist Jo-Rosie Haffenden showing parents how they can persuade their children to behave by using techniques including clicker training.
But the show, which is set to air tomorrow, has led to a furious backlash from autistic groups who claim it 'dehumanises' children, and shows them 'no dignity or respect'.
More than 21,500 people have now signed a petition to have the show cancelled, arguing it will make the children a 'target for grooming in the future'.
