Luckily 1 of my daughters is a nice age, you know where Christmas is magical and not a case of going through the Argos book and saying they want the lot...although I have been told this year that my festive lights are crap and why can't we have some like the house down the road that illuminates the entire street once they turn theirs on
yep, my 13 yr old Daughter wants a Laptop for school. I've been told that some teachers mark down work if it is handed in as written work and not done on a computer. Not sure if that is a ploy by her to get me to fork out for one!
My dad feels he got out of teaching at the right time.
It's crazy, I proof read a piece of work she had done for school and I pointed out all the spelling mistakes....her reply, oh that's alright, I'll get the spellchecker to fix it at the end. I do not think of myself as a luddite but I said no you wont and disabled it, forcing her to correct them.
