The indignity of youth

I was taken back to my childhood this evening as I was coming home from the station.

As I walked down a public footpath, I came across a mum desperately trying to get her young son to go to the loo.

She was crouched down next to her little boy who had his trousers around his ankles and was being remorselessly berated for not doing a No.1 (or maybe even a No.2).

It amazes me how embarrassing parents can be with their young kids.

Whipping your kids trousers and pants down in the middle of the pavement is just mortifying, even if you’re only 4 years old.

I vow never to do the same!
