PARENTAL SKILLS - WHAT PARENTING SKILLS?

We went to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 at the Auckland War Memorial Museum yesterday.



This is outstanding and I hope that you get to see this.

If you do go on a week day when there are no kids there. We went on a wet Sunday morning - bad decision. I'll go again next time when I'm in Auckland at a quieter time. Kids were running amok and showed very little interest in the displayed photographs. When they did show interest it was invariably misplaced.

At one point a kid was jumping up and slapping his hands against a photo. He (about 7) did this several times. His gormless dad was standing about 3 feet away and watching. I had enough. I stepped forward and said to the brat "That's enough you can stop doing that". The kid stopped and slouched away. Gormless dad did and said nothing.

    Actually, I'll change that to moderate post.

  2. Yeah, fair enough, you're under pressure what with 3 blogs.
