Homework should go in the bin. End of.

Yes homework should be banned. I have said it before and I’ll say it again – children need to be allowed to be children. The school day is jam packed enough with academic and educational lessons, and in my opinion that is where it needs to stay. Homework is a complete and utter waste of Read More

Blame

Blame: feel or declare that (someone or something) is responsible for a fault or wrong. 2016 was meant to be a tad more positive than 2015 was for me, but several days in and I already doubt whether that’s even possible.

Running Shoes

Running Shoes: slang, related term: give someone his walking papers.    Depression has been in the news a lot over this last weekend and, sadly, for all of the wrong reasons.  It is as though there are two clear camps on either side of the debate; those who have had depression and ‘get it’, and those who have not, and believe it is simply a Read More

This morning I awoke to the news that in the UK they are trialling giving mothers vouchers in exchange for them agreeing to breastfeed their children. Incentivising them to do something that we all know is best for our babies, for we’re Read More

Most commonly, the desired result is to drive consumer behaviour with respect to a commercial offering, although political and ideological advertising is Read More

Expectations: Part 1 (The ranty part!)

Expectations: In the case of uncertainty, expectation is what is considered the most likely to happen. An expectation, which is a belief that is centered on the future, may or may not be realistic. A less advantageous result gives rise to the emotion of disappointment. (Wikipedia) I’ve worked out why I dislike softplay so much. Read More
