I’ve long thought that we expect too much of our children. Everybody has their own opinion on what is too much. The endless round of school, after-school clubs, evening clubs. The expectation that the poor little mites must excel at everything, must achieve everything, before they even know who they are. Too far, for me, was parents using declassified military logistics programmes, just so that they could keep track of everything, just so that they could shave seconds off from the complicated journeys needed to get everyone everywhere on time. I’m glad I spotted that gap in the market though.
