i’m guessing you are here because that delightful actually mummy sent you? well hello to you and welcome, cup of tea and a hob nob?
wot so funee? wear your seatbelt!
tv advertising has a lot to answer for. as parents, we know all too well the dangers of allowing our children to see the adverts whilst watching the latest episode of tracy beaker (that girl has a lot of tweens with a bad attitude on her conscience if you ask me)! and the business of ‘i want…’ drives me mad. thank heavens for sky+ – does anyone watch the ads any more?
well it would seem they do. in an episode reminiscent of michael mcintyre’s 3-year-old requiring cilit bang from santa, a friend recounted this story to me last week:
my son’s friend was over for a play date, and i had offered to drop him back home afterwards. getting into the car, i reminded my charges to put their seatbelts on. “why do you need seatbelts?” he queried.
“well, just in case we had a car accident, you’d be safer if you were wearing your seatbelt, so put it on now,” i instructed.
“oh but it’s fine!” came the confident response. “if we crash, we’ll just call injury lawyers 4 you. you could get £10,000, you know!”
sky+ my friends, it’s an essential parenting tool.
