How To Win At The School Run

Once your child enters the education system you, the parent, will be required to daily deliver and pick up said child to and from it's place of learning.

At first you might even think meeting other parents waiting at the school gate  is a chance to make new friends and enjoy a bit of adult interaction.

You would, of course, be wrong.

Leading by Example, An Experiment (Failed)

We've been troubled by The Teen's absorption in the wonders of the world wide web for a while now.

When she's not on her laptop playing Minecraft with like-minded devotees, she's watching people playing it on YouTube. When she's all Minecrafted out, she relaxes watching vloggers, vlogging or her favourite show, RWBY which is, of course, only available on YouTube. And when finally the laptop is put away, the iPod comes out so she can listen to music. With accompanying videos. On YouTube.

To The Teen this is a varied diet of activities and she is constantly astonished that we might think otherwise. But of course we do.

We worry about it, and we worry about her. We worried when we got a mobile phone bill for over £300, incurred by wilfully ignoring her data allowance. We worried about that quite a bit in fact.
