I’m not a parent yet, but I have plenty of experience being around children. I have four siblings and two of them have five children between them. So over the last nine years, I’ve seen what parents have to go through preparing their children for school – and
threatening bribing them with anything that works to get them out of the house.
The school run has always been one of my sisters’ idea of hell – she once described it to me as trying to achieve the impossible every morning, and then having to run to work yourself afterwards. In London, especially recently, just getting to work can be a task in and of itself.
Having said all that, September’s a pretty difficult time for parents, so I giggled to myself a little at Morrison’s take on what back to school might mean for parents.
Stock up on that alcohol parents – you’re going to need it.
