Clever parents aren't necessarily good parents – in fact, they can make 'absolutely rotten parents', according to a senior High Court judge.
Mrs Justice Parker said intelligence and education do not guarantee good parenting but many who fail academically give their children a 'wonderful upbringing'.
The judge said: "Learning disability is not in itself a reason for a parent not looking after a child.
"Many clever people make absolutely rotten parents and many people who are intellectually impaired... are warm and caring and provide children with a wonderful upbringing. No one is a perfect parent."
