Parenting books

New research from the University of Warwick suggests that 50 years of parenting books have just made mums feel like failures. Well, really. I don’t think we needed ‘research’ to tell us that. You can’t preach at people in a high-and-mighty hectoring tone, or insist they see the world from your point of view, and expect good results. You need tact and diplomacy. Persuasion is always better than coercion.

On another note, may I remind the residents of Fitton that any able-bodied person who insists on parking in the disabled bay outside Tesco Metro, whether or not she is carrying a giant handbag, may be publicly ‘named and shamed’ on this website. You have been warned.
