Although I sympathise with that father & know just what its like to try & get the children to sleep & how desperate that makes you feel...... I am very much against using a swear word in a child's book because I don't like to hear them say that and if you read it to them, then they will think they have your permission to say it.Don't forget I have worked in a school so know that a child would not be able to use language like that.Maggie XNuts in May
It is not intended for children I don't think. I would never read it to a child. It was just humorous.
