Mum hits out at those who claim to know best
I was really offended when I read the letter in 7DAYS telling us what time we should put our children to bed. Have you ever thought about how us mums feel?
My son who is six, refuses to go to bed before 11pm as he says he can hear me moving around and it’s not fair that I’m awake when he isn’t.
I try to be quiet but with him and a new baby I have a lot to do after I’ve put them to bed, such as cleaning and washing etc.
We’re not all lucky enough to be able to afford help at home you see.
My son is tired the next day, often sleeps throughout the drive to school. I always read experts telling parents to ensure their kids have a good diet but that again, is not so easy.
My six-year-old will refuse to eat breakfast unless he gets Sugar Puffs or another sweet cereal.
He will sometimes have Weetabix if I let him have a chocolate bar after it.
It’s not easy being a parent you know.
