Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
Is your generosity towards your children actually making them a target for criminals?
Heart's found out a child in Essex is mugged every 36 hours on average.
That's actually a much lower rate than previous years but research suggests kids are easy targets because they often have the latest expensive gadgets like smart phones.
The youngest victim in the county was just 6 years old.
Essex police say they should always hide their valuables.
