Not being a real follower of the soaps, I found myself at a loose end last night and ended up watching the last 10 minutes of Eastenders with Mrs Outcast having to explain what was going on. After seing Ian Beale getting the run around from his two kids (14 year old runaway girl and 17 year old raving homo), I had to despair if that is what modern parenting is coming to. I said to Mrs Outcast, had that been me, there would have been no chance of being tricked and running away as they would both been getting frog marched to the car by the ear getting threatened of what was likely to happen to them when they got home. This made Mrs Outcast laugh, she said " I'm glad I can trust you to get the job done if we ever get into that situation". Ok my kids sometimes call me victorian dad but I never need to smack them, just be firm, fair and consistent. Lol, I consistently say no you cant. Is there really people out there who would stand for that sort of nonsense from a 14 year old kid?
