Brilliantly British, we say.

A mum has collated photos that sum up life as a parent in Britain today, and it’s hilarious. 

Lisa Williams, who runs parenting website TantrumXYZ, decided to bring Brits’ dry humour and expert manners to the forefront in the photo series. 

“Us Brits get a bad press,” she told The Huffington Post UK. “Well ‘Au contraire,’ I say. Or, if I’m going to be British about it: ‘Sorry, but can I just step in and disagree?’

“We are made of steely stuff, in my opinion. We believe in manners, diversity, fun, fresh air and exercise.

“Throw in some dry humour and wet weather, and what a brilliant childhood we can give our children.”

Williams asked her readers to send in their best #ParentingLikeABrit photos and shared the best ones below.
