Word to your Mummy

At the frontline of middle class parenting

Middle of the Road

There are plenty of articles that can tell you the tell tale signs that you live with a toddler; sticky handprints on the wall, loo roll RE-ROLLED by hand back onto the inner cardboard tube and small plastic figurines strewn all over the kitchen floor.

But how can you tell the really important things about your toddler like his views on the world and his place within it; his social nuances and psychological make up? It’s these things that tell you what sort of person your toddler will become. In short, is your toddler Middle Class?

If you’re unsure, here’s a handy quiz to find out. Here is a list of middle class toddlers going about their daily lives. How many of these activities do you recognise in your own children?
