8 things you’d never thought you’d say as a parent
Ever caught yourself saying something bizarre to your kids? These parents have.
Trust Cath Jenkin, one of our fearless Parent24 columnists, to come up with this: After catching herself making a weird suggestion to her daughter, she realised just how many daft things kids do that make parents say strange things…Here’s how it all started on Twitter:@cathjenkin
: "please take the envelope off your head". Things you never imagine you'd say as a parent.
Some of her friends started throwing their weird things they’d had to say to kids into the conversation, so we asked:@Parent24
