Lost for words... (almost)
Today I read in BBC News that a Darlington head teacher has asked parents to 'wash and get dressed'.
"made the appeal after she noticed more and more adults wearing pyjamas at the school gates as well as at meetings and assemblies."
"Ms Chisholm said the final straw came when parents wore pyjamas to the Christmas show and to recent parents' evenings."
She even has to explain herself:
""I'm not trying to tell people what to do with their lives, but I just think having a really good role model first thing in the morning, getting yourself up, getting yourself dressed, ready for business, out to school is a really good example to set."
I am aghast.
Can you imagine how it must be for those children to go with their parents in pyjamas to a Christmas Show?
