How things change!

How fast the weeks seem to fly by!

Here we are back at the start of another week and on today’s show we looked at two totally different issues relating to bringing up children.

The first, somewhat, in my view improbable theory, has just been expounded by sometime actress and author, Antonella Gambotto-Burke, who asserts that babies who are bottle fed or like to suck dummies are likely to develop rubber fetishism or a fixation on gimp suits later in life.

Her claims are based on the belief that this is due to the comfort and gratification from the smell, taste and feel of the synthetic material teats they sucked on as infants.

Antonella is no dope as she is actually a member of Mensa, with a genius IQ above 150 and states that, ‘For decades, psychiatrists have tried to explain why some people fetishise rubber and have entirely failed to do so however she asserts the link between bottle feeding, dummies, and rubber fetishism is entirely obvious.”

‘Babies who suck on, smell and fiddle with rubber or synthetic rubber-teated bottles and dummies will quite naturally crave the same sensations in later life.”

She goes on, ‘People feel comforted by rubber. I know I do. I’ve always been drawn to it and love the smell and the feel of latex clothing and now I understand why: it’s because I was bottle fed with those really thick rubbery teats.’

So now we know – and all about her tastes!

Meanwhile it has just been reported that pupils at Millfield High School, located in Lancashire have been issued with a new “three-strike rule” that they will risk detention and a fixed-term exclusion” if they fail to turn up to class with 2 pens, a pencil and a ruler.

Dad Darren Workington was furious when his daughter was awarded a “first strike” when her ruler broke in class whilst her teacher would not allow her to use a replacement when there was a box of spares on the table. 

“The school is full of stationery, everyone brings their stationery in themselves”, he fumed.

“I’m sure it’s not got to the point where all of the children forget their pencil cases every morning. I just think the punishment of twice or three times in a week is excessive for what it is”.

Whilst accepting that the school is trying to teach children to be responsible, he asserts that a 90 minute detention seems excessive.

Some parents have asserted that children have had personal items confiscated as punishment because they had brought the correct items in their bag rather than in a case”.

Headteacher Nicola Regan defended the school’s stance saying “It’s important that students arrive at school with the basic equipment they need for a day of learning.”

“This also helps to prepare them for the responsibilities of life after school and ensures that lessons are not disrupted as staff spend time providing equipment for a small number of students who have forgotten theirs.”

“When students join our school, their parents or carers sign a home-school agreement in which they agree to always send their child to school with the equipment they need.”

She added that the school has offered to buy equipment for any families that are struggling financially and that it is in the process of opening a stationery shop at break times so students can buy spare pens if they need them.

Things always seemed simpler in my day!

See you back in class tomorrow,
