Review:allthatcomeswithit




Graphics -- Male domestication in capitals, almost a pictorial on how to be a houseband and father. The wife's hobby pics shows she can be more into things outside the kitchen and laundry!

Content -- A real guilt trip for parents working doubletime and overtime to pay for one more car, house and the whole upward mobility thing. Deep cocooning in the countryside with subheaders on gardening, books read, family outings and child- rearing stages.

This blog makes you rethink your priorities, keeping in mind, however, that the UK is a welfare haven with the people in higher tax brackets answering for the perks of the people below. So choosing love over money is fine if you live in a welfare state or if you have a huge trust fund.

Recommend -- Details on teaching behavior at home, because British children are called some of 'the best-behaved and well-mannered'. This is learned partially by example, of course, and what about the schools? How does your country keep the balance between real child abuse and turning out monster brats you can't slap on the wrist without them screaming child abuse?

Rating -- 7.0

That's a nice blog. It's good to know that there's still wholesome life out there somewhere!

Thanks for the review, but you seemed to have got the wrong impression of us a little bit.

Both my wife and I work, myself full time and Kerry four days a week. And I think you paint a rather inaccurate picture of the welfare state.

But a useful review non the less, thank you very much.

All that comes with it.
