Before I was married, I had a hundred theories about raising children and no children. Now, I have three children and no theories.
For most of the things children do, parents are responsible. A good seed, noble thoughts and upbringing deeds can determine the character and personality feeds of our children. The amount of money we spend on them is not funny, to please them that's ain't the way honey! Give them your time to make their life sublime. Children are soft clay, mould them the appropriate way. Let your children's life not be compromised, let them blossom in fertile fields to Get Mickeymized.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.

I ask that the media respect the privacy of our children and do not intrude into their lives in the UK.
