Inevitably, when the food arrives, it will be hotter than the sun and this is bound to anger the hungry whingelets. Waiting for food which is right in front of their eyes is not something my children can do quietly.

Most of the plane journey involves you discussing the weather, worrying about if your suitcases will be lost, how warm it is going to be when you get off the plane and if anyone ears have popped yet.

We also believe that ladies should keep a clean house, and allowing a toddler to throw food is a detriment to this end, as well as disrespectful to those in this world who sadly go without, and at the very least, extreme bad manners. We demand that this is rectified immediately.

Can Babies and Toddlers Manipulate Their Parents?

Sarah Ockwell-Smith | Posted 08.06.2016 | UK Parents
Sarah Ockwell-Smith

The idea of children manipulating their parents via their behaviour, be that crying at night, or tantruming during the day, implies that not only are the children capable of such schemes, but that they also possess a degree of machiavellianism. In reality neither is true.

Sarah Ockwell-Smith | Posted 03.06.2016 | UK Parents
Sarah Ockwell-Smith

There are so many parenting myths in circulation in society. Many are obviously myths and therefore easy to ignore. Others however seem far more ingrained and sound far more plausible. The plausibility and popularity of some of the top parenting myths cause a great deal of misunderstanding, and often stress, for parents of toddlers.

This incident has become an opportunity to judge parents. This time it's about us not controlling our children enough. Other times the focus is that we are controlling them too much. It seems that we can never get it right. And perhaps that's the point - there is no right.

Frances Taylor

He is a disloyal, food stealing, baby waking, neighbour visiting, smelly trip hazard... but for some reason we keep him around. The dog came to live with us a year or so before the toddler was born. As a baby, she was fairly disinterested in him, as he was in her (with the obvious exception of meal times).

Ten Top Tips for Harmonious Holidays

Before I went, I had a post in mind about travelling with two small children. It was going to be something wise and profound which would have people nodding sagely and thinking 'I learned something today'. Obviously I got more than I bargained for and so, much like the plane on the return journey, my foray into travel blogging didn't quite take off as intended.

My toddler is the fiercest CEO I've ever pitched to. He can cut through the clutter faster than a well maintained chainsaw in the hands of a zombie apocalypse survivor. If I'm trying to cajole him into doing something, he doesn't want to hear a weak sales pitch.

This was Saturday evening. I'd been a taxi driver, a chef, a waitress, a nurse, a gamer and a handyman by this point. I'm by no means an expert but it does make me think that some of the stuff they teach you in ante natal classes are absolutely pointless.
