Are embarrassed all round when it’s brought up (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

reared

Here is my best explanation:

'it's brought up' is the definition.

(rearing is a kind of bringing up)

'are embarrassed all round' is the subsidiary indication.

'embarrassed' becomes 'red'.

'all round' is an insertion indicator.

'are' inserted into 'red' is 'reared'.

'when' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for reared that I've seen before include "upright", "Fostered, brought up", "Provided and cared for during childhood", "Brought up, nurtured", "Trained", "Raised" and "Nurtured - rose on hind legs".)
