Just remember to repeat this mantra: We’re all doing an excellent job…

‘I was buying my daughter some new school shoes and she was climbing on the seats in the shop. The shop assistant asked my daughter what she was doing, and she replied: “We’re buying some new f*$king shoes!” I nearly died.’ – Mum, Surrey

 ‘I once went to a birthday party to collect my son. It was only when I reached home that I realised… I’d collected the wrong child. What kind of dad does that?!’ – Dad, London

‘I forgot my son’s swimming kit, so he had to sit on the side and watch everyone else swimming. I had to sit and watch him – heart, broken.’ – Mum, Greater London
