I suspect ACF and Ian might be able to celebrate motherhood!

Mothers day is the worst form of commercial exploitation and celebrates the most overrated people on the planet....

Shocked

...unlike Fathers day... which is a fine & noble tradition that is not given the profile & prominence that it thoroughly deserves...!

I once got into a really big argument with the school over the fact the children all made things for Mothers Day but didn't for Fathers Day. I was told this was because lots of children did not have a father. At which point I said this was not true - I was worried what they would teach in Sex Education.

They then clarified that many children did not live with their father - a point I conceded but then said there were still some that only lived with their father and had no contact with their mother.

We then got into a discussion about children often recognising someone as their father even if they were not their biological father


Basically the whole system is skewed where mothers are seen as more valuable than fathers but when I claim that as sexist I'm dismissed as mad.

I take an active role in EVERY aspect of my childrens life and upbringing - always have always will. My wife and I are equal partners when it comes to their upbringing. Why can schools (and employers) not understand this

I wonder what Rio Ferdinand's view is............

Careful that Ant hasn't a cup of tea in his hand, Ian
