Yesterday Morning a Very English Childhood
Finding that perfect balance between being firm enough to gain their respect, yet not too military so children end up resenting you. We were always encouraged to get out of the house and do something active at the weekend. I remember the sound of my mum coming along the corridor to turn off the tv. Sunday was my favourite day as it was a rare time when the five of us were altogether.
My mum being brought up a Christian dragged us children to Sunday school in the adjoining building of our local church. Who knows what random things my children will remember about their childhood when they reach thirty. Learn English Adults, teens and kids Get the most of your summer!
