IT’S HARD to avoid the worst of the news. Not so much the actual facts but the endless speculation, opinion passing for expertise and a parade of shock horror outrages enough to drive the sanest person slightly bonkers. With little else to do, folks are giving full voice to their opinions.
And I reckon some of us should keep your opinions to ourselves. No doubt you’ve heard people complaining about being “stuck at home with the kids”. Granted, parents aren’t teachers, and it’s hard to home-school and work from home at the same time – but what are they thinking?
Comments I’ve read online: “My boss is the vilest, most overbearing, unfair, aggressive bully I’ve ever met. I would gladly go back to work if it means I could escape my kids for a few hours! LOL.” And “I didn’t realise you could love something so much and want to smother them in their sleep at the same time.”
