Not in Front of the Children is a BBC television situation comedy, which ran for four series from 1967 to 1970.

It starred Wendy Craig as a rather scatter-brained middle class housewife. Her husband was a school art teacher, played by Paul Daneman in the first series, and Ronald Hines subsequently. They had three children, a boy in his early teens and two girls who were slightly younger. Charlotte Mitchell played her friend Mary.

In later series she had a baby, and they moved from the suburbs to the country.

It is significant mainly as Wendy Craig's first role as a scatty housewife; she played similar roles in several other series over the next fifteen years.
