Advice show Dilemmas saw a doctor and a panel of guests responding to letters from viewers on a range of issues. In this episode, Australian GP Kerryn Phelps and guest panelists Jude Dobson, Philip Alpers and Liane Clarke deal with everything from a neighbour using a chainsaw at 6:30am on a Sunday, to violence in a relationship. The question of smacking kids as a disciplinary measure is given a children’s perspective, and Liane Clarke suggests a humorous way to deal with catcalling. Phelps went on to become the first woman elected to head the Australian Medical Association.
One of my most vivid memories of being punished is, it was Christmas. Everyone was decorating the tree and I was in my room, and that was more — that sticks with me to this day. I can't remember what it was for but I remember that I was just a good little girl after that.– Liane Clarke, on using time out as a form of punishment
