Re: Whitgift vs Dulwich College, please share your thoughts

Very good advice above. Basically anything can happen.

If you’re looking for single sex schools and willing to head to Croydon, I loved Trinity - bit harder to get into though or it used to be.

Are you talking about year 6 entry or year 7?

Best of luck.

Re: Trick or Treating??

It is a huge shame for the little ones but I don’t see how this can go ahead. I wouldn’t want tens of kids coming up to my house. As one poster said, it is absolute bedlam on the streets and a bowl put out at the end wouldn’t last five mins. Parents will have to sort something out at home, maybe wit...

Re: Boy 'strangled and punched' on way home from school in Earlsfield

Poor family. This has happened for the last two years around October time, in the Wandsworth Common area. So much so that parents were taking it in turns to monitor the roads after school. The police are very aware as they came and spoke to the kids about it. With a lot of kids having to carry lapto...

Re: in laws favour one granddaughter over the other

If you’re lax on discipline then how can your youngest have perfect manners... Hopefully now your husband has said something they (although sounds like it’s mainly your Mother in Law?) will think about the incident and make an effort to be nicer. How old is your eldest daughter and does she think sh...

Re: Life/Career Coach - Midlife Male specialist

My friend has a very successful life coaching business in Manchester with very happy clients. She’s conducting most of her appointments on zoom currently and it’s proving very effective.
I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Re: Next door vegan neighbours objecting to us barbecuing

Hmmm initially I thought your garden, you should be allowed to do what you like. It is an awful smell though - not just the meat but the fuel. Occasionally our neighbours will have a bbq and I’ll think oh great and shut the doors and windows...but if that was most nights then I’d be getting pretty p...

Re: 11 plus

Excellent point Misty32.
And it works both ways - I remember one boy telling all the kids that if they were going off to single sex schools they would turn out weird.

Re: 11 plus

So sorry you’re having a miserable time. The kids are all unsure of what’s going to happen and I’m afraid this turns them into little monsters. She sounds like she’s going into year 6 but you say her classmates seem to be successful getting into schools. Are these kids going to different schools for...

Re: Stay at Home Mum

Hi It’s not so obvious now that the kids are at secondary school but when they were at primary we had one class where there were more full time working parents and therefore more nannies, and one with more SAHMs and part-time working parents. I was lucky to be working 3 days a week so had time to go...

Re: Friend has had hairdresser to her house. Is mobile hairdressing allowed?

I think quite a bit of hairdressing has been going on behind closed doors but people don’t want to say it and get their hairdresser into trouble. Mine told me she’d be happy to come to me when I was ready and that was in April... I have resisted so far. The guidelines have been pants so can’t blame ...

Re: Helicopter on Wandsworth Common

If it’s the one that was above our house for about half an hour I don’t think it was an ambulance - it was blue - so loud - possibly police or news?

Re: Other half embarrassing in drink

So sorry - the last thing anyone needs at the moment is more stress. What has he been like in lockdown? Is he drinking excessively at home or could it be that he needs the drink when he’s in company as he’s not as confident as he likes to portray? Clearly if he is drinking like that at home it is mo...

Re: MIL stayed for 2 months over Christmas and is back in 5 months

Sounds like she’s lonely and probably a bit bored - so many older people would benefit from getting out more at home but they are often reluctant to try something new. But that’s no reason to outstay her welcome, which she clearly is. You wouldn’t even want your best friend hanging out with you ever...

Re: Different mums and different budgets for class nights outs.

Are you the only rep? There should be at least two. Try and find a nice grounded mum to help you, otherwise you’ll be trying to fight the clique on your own :shock:
